Video: Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons Offers Spanking New Scoop on Season 7 'Shamy'

Jim Parsons EmmysThe Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons has definite thoughts on whether and/or how much Amy enjoyed the spanking that she got from Sheldon last season — and that’s just for starters! 

When TVLine’s Michael Ausiello spoke with the actor on the Emmy red carpet – shortly before Parsons picked up his third statuette, we might add – the star also disclosed a major (for Sheldon, anyway) development in Sheldon and Amy’s Season 7 relationship. (Something tells us Amy may not be thrilled… )

Finally, Parsons opened up about working with Glee’s Ryan Murphy on bringing Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart from stage to screen and… Oh, who are we kidding? You pressed PLAY the minute you read “spanking,” didn’t you?

    I think it was pretty clear that Amy enjoyed the spanking…

    • Sabrina Unfair says:

      Not only Amy, but Mayim Bialik enjoyed it so much it was her Emmy submission. LOL. can’t say I’m not pleased she lost with that horrendous episode submission. Being the feminist she claims she is, I can’t believe that whole spanking ep was that was utterly degrading to women is something Bialik is proud of. Shame on her.

      • AmbidextrousAspie says:

        I know a lot of powerful women with “big” titles who would laugh at you thinking spanking is degrading to women.

        • Sabrina Unfair says:

          Not the spanking per se, silly. Consensual S&M is nobody’s biz but those who are engaging in it. What made Amy’s actions degrading to women was the fact that she was taking advantage of an innocent guy who didn’t know what the frak he was getting into. And if he did, we all know that Sheldon would’ve flipped out. If you listen to what JP said to Ausiello, without even knowing the sexual nature of the spanking, the mere action itself was already painful for him to have done. What more if he had known his gf was getting off by taking advantage of him? As a supposed successful, intelligent woman, Amy should know better. And, don’t even get me started on how disappointing it is that a woman with a PhD is THAT needy and desperate for attention – not only from her bf, but from her girl friends as well. Again, degrading to strong, successful women everywhere.

          • NJMark says:

            I’m not getting the “degrading” thing. In that situation, she was the one in power.

          • pam says:

            Dumb, Dumb, Dumb. This is a TV show for entertainment, not politics. Jeese, cant we just enjoy a show without it becoming more than it is. “Entertainment” People!! Not a statement, just entertainment!! Enjoy or dont watch. Simple.

    Boooo it should be Penny and Sheldon

    • Yes I Am says:

      Double boo. And yes. YES IT SHOULD. (Ok, i’ll stop screaming now. thank you.)

    • Yes I Am says:

      and oh, before i forget: glad to know i’m not merely imagining things between Penny and Sheldon. THAT chemistry. so dang electric.

      • cj says:

        I have been watching this show since day one…I have truly missed the chemistry between them two……..but doesn’t this new show state that they share a secreat..hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm lol

    • Ella says:

      THIS! I so badly want this to happen, have been waiting on it since season 1!

    • Sam says:

      Umm no they do got chemistry but it like they are siblings not a romantic one.

      • dog is my hero says:

        shamy fan, table for one? go away and leave us alone with our otp preference. you’ve got yours, we’ve got ours. just because you don’t see shenny’s romantic chemistry, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

    • AmbidextrousAspie says:

      Sheldon can do much better than a woman with no direction, no real ambition with a terrible attitude!

    • suzi says:

      IMO–Sheldon and Penny should never–NEVER–become a couple. The two actors have great chemistry and have created some wonderful scenes and and a believable friendship between the characters, but there is nothing sexual or romantic there. IM very strong O.

      • Snsetblaze says:

        I have to agree. Why would Penny outright go out with a guy who thought she was an idiot? (OK, he does that with his friends too. The only one he thinks is his intellectual equal at times is Amy.( He’s said so in Sheldon terms so many times during the series with regard to book learning although he’s seems to see that she has some street smarts.

    good freaking grief. much ado about that spanking ep. it was one of THE most embarrassingly desperate episodes in big bang’s slowly deteriorating plot history. let’s move on from that abomination, shall we?

    • I liked the ep otherwise, but the spanking was a low moment. I want it to go away as well.

      I am, though, a bit tantalized by the idea that Sheldon wants people to think that he and Amy are doing it. Every time he makes a move towards normalizing his relationship with Amy, my heart leaps a little. He is moving away from seeing dating as “something other people do” and taking steps towards embracing what it means and associating that with himself. He still has a long way to go, of course, but I love it when he has guy talk with Kripke or tells Leonard and Penny that he’s “very fond of Amy.” I swoon a little.

  4. Jack says:

    Anyone else get the sense more and more that Michael Ausiello really has no clue what he’s talking about most of the time? For him to suggest Amy didn’t like the spanking is absurd.

    • Ken says:

      i’ll have to agree with you before your comment gets deleted. tvline has a penchant for making comments disappear if they don’t agree with it for whatever personal reason they have. MOST ABSURD EVER. like, do-you-even-watch-the-show absurd. because frankly, you don’t even have to watch that particular episode to know that horny amy will enjoy something as remotely sexual as sheldon obliviously spanking her.

    • There is just no evidence AT ALL that Amy or Mayim didn’t enjoy it. It’s an indefensible opinion. You could tell Jim was a little flummoxed by the statement. It’s a very odd opinion to have.
