Their relationship was more one of a love-hate variety, and it was clear that it would never materialize into anything long term because of it, despite their shared academic interests. As tempting as the nostalgia factor may have been, the series would have been better off avoiding the relationship altogether.
Leonard and Penny From the beginning of the series, it was clear that The Big Bang Theory was going to be building toward a time when Leonard and Penny could be together. The nerdy underdog getting the girl of his dreams is a tried although admittedly sometimes tired and true trope that countless series have used, and TBBT was merely yet another in a very long line of them.
Leonard and Penny faces their fair share of obstacles on their journey toward being together — not least of all their own inability to commit or get over their own insecurities. However, in the end, the series began as their love story, and will likely end that way, too. Sheldon and Amy It was going to take some real suspension of disbelief to believe that Sheldon Cooper could ever be in a romantic relationship, no matter what woman he wound up with. At first, when the series introduced Amy Farrah Fowler, it seemed like this would be doable: However, over time, Amy became an insufferable character, whose almost every line revolved around double entendres much like Howard in his years of being an annoying, single-minded pig.
With her increasingly demanding personality, Amy began to push Sheldon to become a different man, more like the others in the group. Overall, she did the opposite of changing him for the better.
Bert and Amy Someone who did, in fact, bring out the best of Amy, however, was perhaps one of the most unlikely people of them all: While they did have their cuter moments, such as the time they communicated via text for an entire date, this relationship was clearly never going to go anywhere. Lucy never made any progress in becoming part of the group, which was more than understandable, given how overwhelming they often are.
