'The Big Bang Theory' scoop: Mayim Bialik talks about Amy making Sheldon jealous. Or is he?

Richard Cartwright/CBS

Thrilled that her temporary gig turned into a regular job, Mayim Bialik admits that working on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory has been “the most challenging sitcom I have ever worked on.”  Well, things are about to get a lot more difficult for her character Amy and her kinda-boyfriend, Sheldon (Jim Parsons). “We have an episode coming up called the “Helium Parasite Hypothesis,” it will be on in a couple of weeks,” Bialik teases to EW while attending a red carpet event over the weekend. “Amy starts to feel sexually aroused by someone. She doesn’t know what those feelings are. And Sheldon, we’re not sure if he is feeling jealousy, because he doesn’t know what those feelings are.”

So are Amy and Sheldon finally going to form an official love connection, or what? “I don’t know that I could say things are going to get more serious. I think things are going to get more concentrated,” Bialik admits. “They’re going to explore different aspects of the relationship. I can pretty much guarantee you’re going to see Sheldon in the same way you have always seen him. My character probably is going to stay the same. It’s more like, what does this relationship look like with these polarities?

“I’m assuming that my character is going to stay as creepy and weird as she is,” Bialik continued. “And Sheldon is going to still be Sheldon. But there is a lot of really wacky stuff that they can do with the female character with this personality that they don’t do with Sheldon. The female socialization is different. Once we see this character trying to socialize, she tries harder than Sheldon does. I think that is how females interact. It’s a different kind of socialization.” – With reporting from Nicholas White

    I’m looking forward to what they have planned. Sounds interesting and hilarious.

    well her character did try to make out with Penny, in an awkward off sort of way. Almost innocently too. Her social skills are on a level with Sheldon, thats for sure. I’m glad her character is sticking around. This season has been a hoot, so don’t pollute. er..what?

    • Chappel

      Whose feelings wouldn’t be stirred after a double handful of Penny? Hmmm… Penny… Sheldon… Penny… Sheldon. Not much of a contest.

  • Liv

    I love Amy Farrah-Fowler! I look forward to this story!

  • Alrisha6

    I’m so glad this season haven’t been so Sheldon around. The chapter about the other caracthers have been so hilarius.

    • Troy

      Ah….. The lost art of spelling.

      • lora

      I gave up on spelling on message boards years ago. However, what the hell does “haven’t been so Sheldon around” mean??? Do people read through their own comments before they click Post? If they do read them, then how does that make any sense to them while reading it?

      • AcaseofGeo

        I agree, Ian. Some miner spelling erorrs aren’t so bad; but at least make sense!

      • AcaseofGeo

        Oh yeah, I should’ve mentioned something about the topic. I LOVE this season of “Big Bang”. The 2 new female characters are really adding wonderful new layers to the show.

  • reason

    Even though it would not be in character, I think Sheldon and Amy Farrah-Fowler need to get busy! Hilarity would most certainly ensue!

  • Eddiehaskell

    Sometimes Amy Farrah Fowler gets a bit annoying, but I look forward to seeing this. It could be kind of interesting. I could just see Sheldon trying to figure out why he is so upset.

  • Justin

    Sounds good to me. Her character is funny.

  • Ann

    OMG _ I love Mayim on the show! She’s the female Sheldon! It’s, like, a double dose of Sheldon when Mayim is on. Excited about this episode!

  • claudenorth

    I like that the other characters always refer to her as Amy Farrah Fowler, and never use a shortened version of her name. And I especially like that her middle name is Farrah.

  • Jerry

    The character is awful!

    • EJ

      Yeah. I don’t care for her either.

    • Bean

      Ditto. Though she does show how awkward and unfunny Sheldon could have been in the hands of the wrong actor.

    • Tokki

      Agreed. She’s so dismal and horrible. Sorry but one Sheldon is more than enough…and sometimes a little too much. Here’s hoping AFF gets hit by a bus. Or a falling Mars rover.

    • Tarc

      Yes, and it’s so strange that so many others disagree. :)

  • Jenn

    It would be interesting to see Leonard’s mom brought into the mix. What would SHE think of ShAmy?
