And it all started with a Big Bang…Theory, that is. When viewers first met Sheldon Cooper, the character so aptly played by Jim Parsons resembled Star Trek titan Spock in his preference for intellectual debates rather than emotional discussions. But through the years, Sheldon has evolved and learned from his pals to the point that he’s found love. And that’s why Dr. Cooper’s romance with Amy ranks as one of the top TV moments of 2014, says Variety.
“In a disarmingly tender moment, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) tells Amy (Mayim Bialik) that he loves her, too. The big ‘Aw’ from the audience was doubtless echoed in millions of homes.”
But Sheldon’s evolution to this point was as convoluted as some of his rules for living and games.
“Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.”
Initially, Sheldon avoids even saying the “L” word (he’d rather talk about lizards).
“There’s no denying that I have feelings for you that can’t be explained in any other way. I briefly considered that I had a brain parasite, but that seems even more far-fetched. The only conclusion was love.”
Playing her role as Sheldon’s opposite, Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) has helped Dr. Cooper express his emotions while exchanging zingers and Bazingas.
Penny: ‘No big deal. Not knowing is part of the fun!’
Sheldon: ‘Not knowing is part of the fun.’ Was that the motto of your community college?’
But while Sheldon admitting that he’s experiencing love ranks as a top moment of 2014, the ultimate fan favorite remains the Leonard Nimoy episode, as the Inquisitr reported.
“All I need is a healthy ovum and I can grow my own Leonard Nimoy.”
What awaits Sheldon and Amy? (Spoiler alert!) When The Big Bang Theory returns after its hiatus, episode 12 of Season 8 is titled “The Space Probe Disintegration,” according to Christian Today.
Joined by his roommate and friend Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon glumly joins Penny and Amy to experience the horrors of shopping for clothes.
But Raj Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) won’t be having much fun either in this episode. He helped launch a space probe project. As he awaits the data, Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) seeks ways to distract his friend.
