Day 05 - The pairing with the least chemistry?


Leonard and Penny, The Big Bang Theory

I never bought it. Never.

I hate when from a very first episode, a series pushes a pair on you. It's like, "This is where we're going whether it works or not". As the characters develop, you get to see where the chemistry actually is, and to continue with a set-in-stone game plan when things aren't going in that direction just feels forced and unnatural.

I don't know if it was always the plan to have them break up after getting together. I do at least give the writers credit for that. I never bought them being together in the first place, so them breaking up did seem the right outcome, although where I had a hard time with it was Penny freaking out over the L-word. It would have been more realistic if the break up was because, you know, they had nothing in common other than sex.

And, you know, I want to like Leonard, but he seems more "Nice Guy" than nice guy.

Also, for a show about geeks and how they just don't fit in, they sure score a lot of hot babes. Ah, male fantasy.

For the record, I ship no one on this show. Although crossover-wise? I think Raj and Guy would be awesome wingmen for each other.

Hmmm, I thought they had the tiniest spark the very first episode. Then it just fell flat after that. They're obviously in that friend zone and I never felt comfortable with them being together. I do kinda ship SheldonxPenni...lol. Don't know why, I guess I'm twisted, lol.

They may have. I can't remember. But I just never could buy that she was into him, and it seemed he was just into her because she was pretty.

That seems to be popular, and while I think they have good comedic chemistry, that's where it ends for me. The actors really do play off each other well.
