The Big Bang Theory Taping  
We just came back from the Big Bang Theory taping. Gotta admit, it still feels quite surreal that we really saw a live taping! OMG.

SO AWESOME.

First I gotta say, the day already started off good. Before the taping we did the WB Studio Tour and we actually saw Jim arriving and making his way to the sound stage! \o/

The waiting around was quite a bitch (we were already there at around 2:30 pm) but it all paid off b/c our seats were awesome!!!

And I have to say… Jim Parsons is the most adorable thing EVER. So precious! He was so animated on set, never able to stand still, danced around quite some bit and went over his lines again and again and again and again.

There were some funny bloopers, too.

So, since I promised some ppl a rundown of the episode, I threw some stuff together. Please ignore all the typos. I’m damn tired but wanted to get the thing out before I go to bed.



Episode “ The Plimpton Stimulation”

So, it seems Penny and Leonard are finally broken up!! (can I hear a HELL YEAH?)

It starts out in the canteen with all the four boys. Sheldon reveals that a very famous female physicist (Dr. Plimpton) will come and visit him for a few days (and will stay with him) and Leonard is all excited b/c he is a huge fan and has a major crush on her.
There is also quite some fun dialog (which I won’t spoil you with) as the boys learn about Sheldon’s plans.

Next scene is Sheldon and Penny walking up to the apartments. There is a funny interaction between them and Sheldon tries to get some “female” advices out of her *g*

After that we see Sheldon being in the apartment and Dr. Plimpton arrives. Leonard runs out of his room all excited and makes a fool out of himself. LOL (just saying HILO) lool Watch out for that one.

Next up we are in Sheldon’s bedroom with him giving the woman a run down of all the stuff in his room and informs her about the emergency plan in case the apocalypse strikes during that night.

After that we saw a pre-recorded scene where Dr. Plimpton sneaks into Leonard’s room and seduces him. They sleep together.

Next morning we see Sheldon waking up on the living room couch, doing his thing while getting up. Leonard and Dr. Plimpton come out shortly after and are all in a post-morning-sex bliss. Of course Sheldon is oblivious. (seriously, isn’t he always?? LOL )
Then there is a knock on the door and it’s Penny trying to get a ride to work since her car is not working… AGAIN (no engine light this time… but she forgot to gas up lol )

And she pretty much catches on that Leonard slept with the girl and therefore acts like a pissed ex-girlfriend. And finally also Sheldon catches on and is pissed, too (“She is my friend, only I’m allowed to play with her” ) LOL

Later Leonard brags about his little encounter and Dr. Plimpton makes advances towards Raj (now Leonard is the oblivious one)

Sheldon is still all depressed about Leonard’s move and he does laundry on his non-laundry day. (shocking, right?? ) And of course he meets Penny in the laundry room and they kinda bond over the whole Leonard thing. But of course Sheldon is his usual self and unintentionally insults Penny. But since she is already used to it she doesn’t take it personally.

Second last scene is in Raj’s apartment. Dr. Plimpton is there. And at some point Howard stops by, too. I won’t go into detail b/c it’s quite a funny scene and I don’t want to spoil it for you guys. Just let me say that in the end it almost turns into a foursome kinda deal… but Raj is being his sneaky self and has better plans.

The episode ends with a Leonard and Penny scene. (ETA: Both are meeting in the hallway and go upstairs. And Leonard wants to explain... so Penny lets him. Then there is a long pause and all Leonard says in the end is: "She let me") That was the endnote of the episode.)



Man, seriously, this was an unforgettable experience. Seeing all the magic behind the stuff? And seeing Jim and Co. LIVE and in action? Beyond words.
Also the set is soooooooo small. The living room looks so huge on tv. But in reality it’s truly tiny.

It was also interesting to see how they actually film it, with several cameras rolling at the same time, then doing some pick up shots, changing the whole dialog around from take to take and see how it works best. Truly fascinating to witness.

It was my very first live taping. But I hope it won’t be my last.

Alright… tired now!! There might be more later, but for now, I’m done!! Lol

Hey there... sorry for answering so damn late but I was actually on vacation and just wanted to get the report online asap.

Just wanted to say thank YOU for reading and commenting :-)

Awesome! I'm so excited to see Judy Greer on TBBT. And it sounds vaguely slutty of a role for her, which is kind of hilariously appropriate because you know.... she played KITTY ON AD.

But I'm not a fan of Penny being potentially jealous... ugh. I just want the show to move on from L/P. *sighs* I hope it wasn't too slanted towards them potentially getting back together again.

Anyway, no more negativity in my response! Heh. Sounds like a hilarious episode & I'm glad you had a great time. Thanks so much for posting this for us to read! :)

I didn't known Judy Greer before that... but I'm very impressed by her! She was awesome and didn't even once stumble over her lines. She was a complete professional! Awesome.

And the episode will be hilarious!! That I can guarantee you :-D Sheldon alone (as always) is priceless!! LOL

Really? REALLY? After that we saw a pre-recorded scene where Dr. Plimpton sneaks into Leonard’s room and seduces him. They sleep together.

REALLY? This isn't a fake taping report to seduce me into a false sense of security? (Although I hope the ends-w/LP part isn't hinting at any future groundwork for a reconciliation).

WOW. And thank you so much for staying up to post this!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on March 24th, 2010 05:45 pm (UTC)
Nope, no fake taping report. This is 100% true and will be seen in 3x21.

And about the last L/P scene:
Both are meeting in the hallway and go upstairs. And Leonard wants to explain... so Penny lets him. Then there is a long pause and all Leonard says in the end is: "She let me". That was the endnote of the episode.

Thank you so much for this!

Okay, really Leonard? Really? You're "in love" with this chick and yet you're able to sleep with someone else and be all happy and giddy two weeks after you break up? Okay.

ANYHOW. Want to see how jealous Penny plays out. Can't wait for the Sheldon/Penny scenes.

And what are the details about the Leonard/Penny scene at the end? Just wondering.

Thanks again! :D

Yes! I don't know what they think they are doing with jealous!Penny...er, why? But it just proves what their relationship was. Will the show have Penny going out and dragging some guy home for a 'therapy weekend' as well?

I don't like that last line. *worries*

But predatory scientist collecting nerd scalps - hee! I'd love to see her in a smackdown against Leslie Winkle...

IDK, this could be either good or bad. I'm hoping we will get a season2-like episode. Thanks for the report!
Jenniferdaydreamer1984 on March 24th, 2010 11:10 am (UTC)

Wow only reading this makes me damn excited! I'm sure I would've fainted if I were there with you.^^ But then I almost faint on a daily basis atm cause I have a cold which just won't go away, dang!
Whatever, glad to hear you're having a great time darling you so deserve it!!! =)
mrssnape13mrssnape13 on March 24th, 2010 12:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for posting! :)

Maybe jealous Penny is just mad that Leonard has moved on so quickly? That's what I'm going with, because I like to live in my own little delusional bubble! XD

Hopefully that L/P scene at the end isn't setting up for some kind of reconciliation!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on March 24th, 2010 05:52 pm (UTC)
Yes, I think that is Penny's reason. I mean how can someone say I LOVE YOU and then move on so damn quick?

About the end:
Both are meeting in the hallway and go upstairs. And Leonard wants to explain... so Penny lets him. Then there is a long pause and all Leonard says in the end is: "She let me") That was the endnote of the episode.

"We were on a break", anyone?

That was my first reaction after I read that part. It's the writing team channeling R/R again.

Except...

What the writers don't seem to get was that Ross, after sleeping with the girl, was guilty and regretted it. Here, it's different, because Leonard is proud of himself. It's kinda disgusting to me, especially since he proclaimed to be in love with Penny.

I know one of the reasons Penny spent so much time with him was because he was 'one of he good guys' and 'doesn't cheat', but hell...he might as well have. -_-;

Aww, first of all, I'm so glad you had a great time. Yay for you. Secondly, thank you SO much for coming on over the comm and posting: You are officially awesome.

Thanks for the heads-up. It sounds like Penny is more upset about Leonard (shocking! Not) moving on so quickly, as opposed to actual jealously. I sure hope that is the case.


YAY!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on March 24th, 2010 05:53 pm (UTC)
Yep, I think that's Penny's reason!

Oh and about the end:

Glad you liked it!! :)

I read her and Leonard slept together and laughed quite maniacally because Leonard is just the biggest douche.
Rebound or not, if he cared about Penny he would NOT have done that.

Did not enjoy the last line. Do not want L/P scene. Damn writers, giving me a false sense of security.

Thank you for taking the time to post! <3

I'm confused. Is Sheldon jealous too? That makes me way more worried than any Leonard/Penny interaction.
chrissad_sieya on March 24th, 2010 05:34 pm (UTC)
He seems more jealous that Leonard is monopolizing the attention and energies of his guest with whom he undoubtedly wants to have long, rambling conversations than the fact that Leonard had sex with her.

That sounds so cool! I don't watch TBBT... yet but actually being there sounds like quite an experience! :)
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on April 9th, 2010 01:22 am (UTC)
Sorry for answering so damn late. Since I got back I'm slowly working my way through my flist and all the lovely comments.

Aww and thank YOU for reading and commenting! It really was an unique experience and it still feels kinda surreal! Crazy! Absolutely crazy! lol
