SQUEE!! At new 'Big Bang Theory' CBS photo  
This is from CBS's September issue of their online magazine Watch -- which I've never heard of before.

Pretty, pretty please flist -- unbiased opinions from those who do NOT watch The Big Bang Theory -- based on this photo who do you think the show's OTP is?



ETA: Would help if I provided names --

Guy with the pornstache - Leonard (I love ya, but no to the facial hair!)
Guy with the cheesy grin standing in front of Leonard - Howard
Girl - Penny
Guy standing behind her with red bowtie - Sheldon
Indian sitting down with the pearly whites - Raj

I'm sorry - I can't remember they guys' names for sure. But I can definitely see what you mean.

Which guy do you think? Describe from the picture.
gowdiegowdie on June 8th, 2009 11:31 pm (UTC)
Okay, Sheldon and Penny. Not Leonard. Although, Johnny Galecki is sitting there all the big cool star of the show.

Aww, I didn't think of Johnny that way, I just loved how Kaley and Jim were the centerpiece.

Ok, so I've never seen the show ... I'm guessing it's the blonde chick and the guy with the maroon bow-tie standing all in her bubble.

Though her body language is more open to the guy to her right ... so I'm not sure.

I second this.

The supposed OTP of the show (although, they REALLY are not that popular at all and my pairing --"the blonde chick and the guy with the maroon bow-tie standing all in her bubble" -- are way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaay more popular) is the girl and the guy with the pornstache..

But this was a shot done BY CBS, so I'm hoping little things like this show that they've seen the light and Sheldon and Penny are it!!

Woohoo!! See, that's what I'm hoping that people who don't watch the show will see. That's MY pairing -- and way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaay more popular than the supposed OTP, the girl and the pornstache-guy. I'm just hopeful with little things like this that CBS gets is and we'll see a switch in direction away from Penny and pornstache. Sigh.

What A GREAT QUESTION!! I'm going to ask my own f-list this question later this week. :DDDD
Arabian: Moderratorarabian on June 9th, 2009 03:42 am (UTC)
I just thought it would be interesting to see what people who don't have preconceived perceptions of the character/ship would think.

I like that Leonard has been relegated to the bottom corner/ I have no investment in this show, but even with peripheral watching I kind of hate Leonard with the passion of one thousand suns!
Arabian: One Angry Loganarabian on June 9th, 2009 03:42 am (UTC)
Aww, I mostly like Leonard, I just DESPISE Leonard and Penny because they. do. not. work!!!!!!!!!!!
lavender goomsthe_spin on June 9th, 2009 03:45 am (UTC)
lol I am totally on the side of Sheldon/Penny, but it's only because I usually want to hit Leonard over the head with a frying pan. Literal character bashing, ouch.
Tina: fantasy quotethatlibrarylady on June 9th, 2009 12:39 am (UTC)
I've never seen the show but I'd have to say Penny and Sheldon, judging from the body language.

This is what I want to read!!! Totally copying my earlier reply: That's what I'm hoping that people who don't watch the show will see. That's MY pairing -- and way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaay more popular than the supposed OTP, the girl and the pornstache-guy. I'm just hopeful with little things like this that CBS gets is and we'll see a switch in direction away from Penny and pornstache. Sigh.

Woah, it does look like it would be Sheldon and Penny there. My sister used to watch the show but I've never seen it, though I hear Sheldon is a riot.
Arabian: Jim Parsons02arabian on June 9th, 2009 03:44 am (UTC)
Doesn't it?!?! You should TOTALLY watch it. It is HYSTERICAL. I honestly think it's not only the funniest show on television, but possibly my favorite sitcom ever. I adore it so, and Sheldon/Jim Parsons is a comic genius AND he and Kaley Cuoco (Penny) have AMAZING chemistry.

Plus, not that you see it on the show, but Jim can do sexy when he wants. See my icon!!??!
Robert A Lyonrobertlyon on June 9th, 2009 01:38 am (UTC)
Is that show any good?
Arabian: Sheldon Cooper01arabian on June 9th, 2009 03:45 am (UTC)
Fantastic. To me, it's the funniest show on television right now. Jim Parsons is a comic genius and he and Kaley Cuoco have amazing chemistry.
aroniwen on June 9th, 2009 01:58 am (UTC)
In my completely biased opinon it's ovbiously Sheldon/Penny! Although other than that I have no words... I will now proceed to tell you those words! WHAT IS UP WITH LEONARD'S STASH???? AND WHAT WOULD EVER CAUSE THE BOYS TO DRESS UP LIKE THIS??

That pornstache is hideous. It really, really, REALLY is. Oh, Johnny. It doesn't look as bad in the the little video shoot that Kunal (Raj) shot, but still -- it's bad.

As for the clothing, it's for some photoshoot for CBS's online magazine, WATCH.

Aww, too cute.

Re Watch magazine: I believe they're offering free subscriptions of the magazine to the first 50,000 or something. I signed up because sometimes they have soap pictures in there. A while ago they did a photoshoot where some ATWT re-enacted famous first couples.
Arabianarabian on June 9th, 2009 03:46 am (UTC)
Ooh, I'll have to see if that offer is still good, cuz I'd love to see the BBT/JP, S&P goodies.
Angelaserenityveritas on June 9th, 2009 03:11 am (UTC)
Ha! I showed my boyfriend the picture (he watches the Big Bang anyway) and pointed out your point about who the show's OTP seems to be from this picture and he responded "Well, it's more 'guess what this show is about?' Cause I'm seeing that and thinking a group of ragtag magicians and their assistant traveling around Vegas having crazy adventures."

And now I'm thinking things like cracked out AU fic.

Edit was just for silly post-final typos :P

Cracked out AU fic is a good thing, LOL!

That picture DOES totally scream Sheldon and Penny are the OTP!!! Chuck Lorre may not realize it yet, but I think that CBS does and hopefully, Jim's hype, possible Emmy nom (and win?!), plus the gargantuan Penny/Sheldon buzz will get Lorre and co. to give S&P a chance!!!!

I love this photo! I'm wondering where Sheldon's hands are.
Arabian: Sheldon & Penny  - The Endarabian on June 9th, 2009 05:00 am (UTC)
Oh, naughty you! He just has them folded behind his back like in my icon.

But, God, yes, I ADORE this photo. I want an HQ so bad!!!
Ashley Rae: BBT_Sheldon/Penny_Happy Working Songloves_bitch1301 on June 9th, 2009 03:33 pm (UTC)
You're probably right, but I like my version better. ;D
jessalrynnjessalrynn on June 9th, 2009 04:56 am (UTC)
I'd say the guy with the bowtie and the girl. Unless he's gay and they're best mates or something. *grins* Never seen the show at ALL.

You should watch it. It's SO FRICKIN' HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!! I love it so much. It's my favorite show airing right now.

Well, my opinion couldn't BE any less biased, but seriously? That photo? Leonard is over in the freaking corner! Also, where are Jim's hands?
Arabian: Sheldon & Penny  - The Endarabian on June 9th, 2009 05:27 am (UTC)
You people with your dirty minds. Tsk, tsk. His hands are folded behind his back, like in my icon.

But yeah, Leonard's in the corner and Sheldon and Penny are front and center!! Woohoo! Where they belong, damnit. TOGETHER!
