    That little line at the end of YS made me tear up. Besides the “children” comment, it was the very first time we’ve heard Sheldon say “my wife.”

    Judd Hirsch will also be free to reprise his role as Leonard's dad, Alfred. Loved him!

    I'm a bit late to the party, but some things I loved about this episode: - Amy knowing that Sheldon believes time travel is a closed loop and Sheldon's response: "I love you so damn much." - Of course they would be the couple to get distracted for 45 minutes on their wedding day to do science together, lol. - Penny putting Amy's mom in her place - The way Sheldon smiles when he sees his bride walking down the aisle - AMY'S VOWS OMG. Now we know she fancied him from their first meeting. - Also the reference to Amy's previous study disproving love at first sight - Amy's expressions during the whole ceremony and especially during her vows... Reminded me of the "I love you too" when they got back together but even more enthusiastic/in love - Sheldon not being able to find the right words to express his love to Amy, but still making the sweetest vow to her - The "I do" exchange - That kiss was adorable - I don't know why, but I thought Sheldon's long tail tux was very fitting for some reason - Them walking out hand in hand. With rings on their fingers. Married. I'm so excited for them y'all.

    Yes, bring him back, too! I guess I specifically mentioned Katey because her previous appearance was so short and I grew up with and love 8 Simple Rules. However, all of the parents are well cast and they're all welcome additions in my book.

    I want Leonard's dad back now, too. As much as possible. He did a great job.

    Yes, he has never mentioned Amy before (or any other TBBT character, for that matter), I think the writers did that on purpose, because of the speciaI episode aired on TBBT It's possible, I wouldn't ruIe it out, actuaIIy this is a very clever way to connect the two shows, up to that episode we had just seen things happened in the past (YS) resonate in the present days (TBBT), it was the first time we got a gIimpse into the future; but, as I said, I think they mentioned Amy just because of TBBT finaIe, it was, if you wiII, a further gift to the fandom, so I don't expect them to reference her, or any of the other TBBT character, very often

    To quote Sheldon: Ah, youth. It was amazing how their relationship back then was skewed towards Amy. She didn't seem to care much when they "broke up", she rejected his offer to go to dinner with him, not to mention she was all "slow down Sheldon, I'm not quite there yet" in Herb Garden. It was so obvious how much Sheldon was falling for her each day. Right from heartily enjoying her puns, to describing their coital relationship in graphic detail (loool) to her mother, he seemed to do everything he could in his power to impress Amy. He even took 65% of the blame for that fight (although I always thought Amy was the one who started it). And his "bazinga" after expressing his interest in coitus with her, didn't fool anyone lol. Not to mention the fact that they always called their friendship a "relationship". *happy sigh* And now...they're married. 😍

    No, I couldn't. Writing screen plays is much different than writing fan fiction. None of my fan fic has anywhere near enough jokes to turn into a screenplay for a half hour comedy. Other than fan fic, all I've been able to manage is a script for a ten minute play, and I don't even know if that is going to get selected for the festival. I also act. Theatre and screen are visual mediums, so you need actors to bring the words to life. However, the words have to be there before the actors can bring them to life. It is a symbiotic partnership between actors and writers, and both are needed. They have been asked about the if they come up with ad libs for the show. And the answer they could use would be a simple no. But, they go on about the writers, even when not asked. Now this could be because most of the cast are not writers. There are three writers in the main cast that I know of, Melissa, Simon, and Kevin. Now, you may not like the directions the writers of the show have taken, as I don't, but you can't conflate a direction they take that you don't like, with whether the script is mediocre. You could like the direction and the result still be mediocre.

    Even if this Season it has dropped to no.3, with the viewing figures it gets and the age of the show it's still doing ridiculously well. I wouldn't say the show is struggling or anything, it is facing increasing competition from newer shows and shows with a heavy nostalgia factor as well in the 'era of reboots'. The show is coming to the end of its life, but it's still fighting and not going out with a whimper. At the end of the day, viewing figures are important because it keeps the show on the air and a motivation to perhaps keep the show going. But the no.1 factor for me above everything else is asking myself the questions: Do I still enjoy the show? Do I still want to keep watching it? And the answer is Yes.

    I don't think I have ever consistently watched any show beyond about eight seasons before TBBT. TBBT/YS are the only programs that I consistently watch live. From my point of view tbbt has been exceptional. I think Bill and Chuck had an idea that was something I wanted to see and that they managed to launch a winner.

    Yes, and now that Superior Donuts has been cancelled, I hope Katey Sagal comes back as 'Susan.' I'd love to see more of Penny's family and hometown life. As someone else suggested, I think it would be great for the season 12 premiere to be about vacations for the characters, i.e., Penny and Leonard in Omaha, Bernadette and Howard vacationing with the family, and Amy and Sheldon on their honeymoon working on super asymmetry.

    Like others have said and to quote the famous Aristotle line: 'The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.' It's the no.1 non sports show/comedy on TV because of the effort that is made by every part of the production process. Writers, production staff, actors, filming crew, set designers, wardrobe staff, even the money men who put money into the show and countless other people with specific roles that add to putting out a show every week when it's on air. It's highly successful thanks to a collective group effort at the top of their game.

    No, she kept hers like she said in the episode where they almost got married on a hitch (11x10), that they'd go in as Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler and come out as Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler married couple. Holland confirmed that in an interview a little while ago.

    Great list there! Here's a few more: 1. Sheldon helping Amy with a crisis a la The Isolation Permutation. 2. Amy planning a surprise event for Sheldon (could be a birthday or some other celebratory party). 3. Sheldon so overcome with happiness that he kisses her. 4. Shamy "making everyone feel awkward cos that's their thing" with some insane topic (bonus if it happens over dinner and the others put down their plates/takeout and leave the room while Shamy are baffled as to why lol). 5. Amy actually loving one of Sheldon's "dopey space movies" and quoting random lines from it to get her way (especially if there's some sorta disagreement with them on their project). 6. Sheldon being so thoroughly flummoxed by the above, that all he can do is take her hand and lead her into their bedroom. 7. I miss their date nights. Them dressing up in fancy clothes and going out somewhere. We kinda sorta got one in S10 but big ol Bert got in the way. 8. Seeing one of Amy's older striped cardigans. 9. Them having tea together. I know some of these sound a bit fanficcy, but the entire show since S10 has been one GIANT Shamy fanfiction celebration, so, sky's the limit!

    Aww.:( Jim has had it rough.:( His dog has passed away and now he’s injured.:( Hope things get better for him soon. My name is Cassidy and my dream is to meet Jim one day. It’s impossible because I’m from Mississippi. He’s mostly in LA or New York.:( So far.:( I’m a Southern gal.;) Haha. I know Jim is from Houston, Texas so he is from the South like me. Lol. Jim is so sweet and so caring. I think I would be so star struck if I ever met him. He only has Instagram but he never replies to anyone on there especially on private message.:( I wish I could contact him on there but there’s millions of fans who try to contact him on there so that’s not happening. I have a rare genetic disorder called Turner Syndrome and a mild form of autism called Asperger’s Syndrome. I know there has been discussion before about Sheldon having Asperger’s and I think it’s cool that the writers decided not to label Sheldon with Asperger’s because Sheldon doesn’t have to be defined by anything. Though, Sheldon does remind me a lot of myself and my quirks. Lol. Jim is so amazing and I love his portrayal of Sheldon. The Big Bang Theory is my favorite show obviously!❤️❤️❤️

    I'd like to see them spend their first Christmas together as a married couple. What I'd love to see on screen.... Them decorating their tree together Sheldon hanging up mistletoe then taking Amy by the hand, leading her to stand below it and kissing her passionately Working together in the kitchen preparing Christmas dinner Cuddling on the sofa ( preferably their recently bought new one that's big enough for Sheldon!! ) watching " It's a wonderful life " and picking holes in the plot ( actually that movie's a masterpiece but maybe they could find something!! lol )

    Same for me really. The Star Trek Series (TNG, DS9, Voyager) which I have watched to death lol all ended at 7 seasons, so did Buffy. The X-Files is probably the only show I consistently watched before this one that went beyond 7 or 8 seasons. A lot of shows especially these days don't make it to that many. I don't watch TBBT live because of where I live but I would for sure watch it live if I could and I do watch it when it airs in the UK every week when it's on so I guess from a UK point of view I do watch it live, 'Exceptional' and more in my eyes, it's an amazing show that has brought a lot of joy to many over the years and still does. It provides a much needed escapism for me, sure I have my grumbles with some things or stories (but then I always have) but I still love it. It will be a sad day when it ends.

    Actually, I've read several comments on social media that people were saying they were worried that Kripke would steal their ideas because he already took the deal of the Air Force from the guys. They were expecting some "Sheldon-Kripke show down" next season. LOL.

    Ha, yes, me too. I loved this little off-scene detail, and Sheldon's line "Ironic, huh?" Both of them disproved the study with their own feelings, ironic, huh? LOL. Totally agree. IMO, this breakthrough in 11X24 was more of Sheldon's breakthrough. Amy inspired him and named it Superasymmetry, but it didn't relate to Amy's study that much. But I love him for giving Amy credit. On the other hand, I'd like to see their joined project in 10X19 have some development. And, call me greedy, but after all these years, after the crisis in S.7, after he switched to Dark Matter and switched back to String Theory, I really want to see Sheldon have a big success in his career before the series end.

    It's not just about the writers and actors, it takes an army to get the show on the air 24 times a year. Incredibly talented people who take pride in their work.

    It’s probably already been said, but one amazing side note from the finale (and who among us who truly loves these two is surprised?) was the love of their friends and the true and complete happiness for them that Leonard and Penny displayed. From Penny’s take charge role as matron of honor, giving assignments. Her handling both Mrs Fowler AND Mrs (Mary) Cooper in defense of both Sheldon and Amy was a great moment as was her enthusiastic “I’m pumped” along with her hop and jump to action! Although Leonard teasingly told Sheldon that he was now fully Amy’s problem, his tearful moment showed his true feelings for his dear friend with his characteristic sensitivity on full display. They are wonderful, caring, loyal and true companions to themselves and to their circle of friends. Small but wonderful moments for Dr. and Mrs. Hofstadter.

    Seeing the Eleventh Season Finalie has come and gone. It was this week May 16th, 2013. Five years ago. One of my fav finalies from this series aired. The Bon Voyage reaction. Season 6 was by far my fav season from this series.

    Raj should keep it curly all the time and not go back and forth from straight to curly. I love it curly. As for Penny, I don't like when they pull it up on top of her head or into those little tails on top of her head and emphasize her roots, showing she's not really blonde. They didn't have Sheldon remarking on it again this season, and I wish they'd quit stressing it visually.

    Whether it’s number one is going to depend on what measure you use. Roseanne, has a higher average demo and higher average total viewers in Live + Same Day(SD), Live + 3, and Live + 7. In Live + 3 and Live + 7, it’s only number three, as This is Us also beats it in demo for those two measures. Live + SD, is the the only measure TBBT beats This is Us. As for average total viewers, as mentioned before, Roseanne is number one in all three measures, and TBBT beats This is Us in all three measures. It was interesting to see the claim that TBBT reclaimed its number one spot a few weeks ago. It did this on the week Roseanne was in reruns. And while TBBT has had more viewers the last two weeks, Roseanne has beaten it in Demo. Although, I expect TBBT to be the number one show this week, in both demo and viewers. Now, with all these different measurements, which is the actual official measure? Actually, it’s none of these. The official number is something called C3 (Although the networks are pushing for C7) This is the demo number of the viewers who watch the show and don’t skip the commercial( whether or not anyone is watching, they are not fast forwarding through them) up to three days after the show airs ( or 7 days in the case of C7) While these numbers are usually guarded by Nielsen, enough of them are leaked, usually by networks) to know these numbers are slightly lower, than the Live + 3. In terms of this, number one is Roseanne, number two is This is Us, and TBBT is number three. Actually, in C3, TBBT’s C3 number drops more from its Live + 3 than the other two.

    Yes! I LOVE their early romance too, right before they sighed RA. That was a precious time when Sheldon could 'speak' his affectation for Amy out, like the cats and 5*08's cuddles, I think it's because he could still lose Amy at that time, but everyting was different after sighing RA, he seemed not trying anymore, which is also why I have said I preferred Shamy 2.0, it's not that I don't like 1.0, just think 1.0 was used to make the audience happy, however 2.0 makes both audience and Shamy happy(am I overthinking lol). I am looking forward to 'accelerating' and 'spending the rest of my life showing'

    Considering he’s lived with her for about 2 years now, I’m sure he’s gotten used to seeing her plenty of times without her glasses on.

    During the vows, I loved the bit about Amy's study disproving love at first sight. Because it's in character and we know Sheldon read it and loved it. Just imagine, after they met, Sheldon looks into her work to learn more about her, and the seeds of his affection being planted. Texting each other discussing it. loved their season 3/4 early romance.

    It's true that a bad actor can ruin a decent script and it's also true that a good actor can elevate bad material. But in the end it's still cooperation between both parts and you only get great results when the written word and the performance of the actor go hand in hand. TBBT is not improv comedy so the scripts are crucial to bring the characters to life.

    The best version of many stories are just words on paper called novels. Words on paper can have a magic of their own.

    Started my new fic about a possible Denise/Stuart romance and perhaps exploring some of the fears that a workplace romance might have. Especially when Stuart's business is doing well and he attributes that also to Denise's impact since she was hired. It's going to be much smaller than my 17,000 word stories. Probably 3 or 4 chapters max. No plans really, just writing it as I go along and hopefully enough ideas stick and work.

    If season 12 really is going to be the last season, what would you like to see from Shamy that we haven’t seen yet? I’ll also do one for the Lenny’s too. I’ll edit this to keep adding to the list so we can see one big list..... Onscreen tickle fight Cuddling in bed Shopping for something (food, furniture, etc.) Sheldon driving with Amy in the passenger seat (for once) Looking for a bigger place Planning for having children See more of Amy’s parents with interaction with Shamy (and their friends). (I loved Penny’s reaction to Mrs. Fowler both in the car and in 4A) Learning more about Amy’s parents Replace the couch (writers, if you’re reading this, it’s one of the top wishes.) Continue science & geek stories. A little more ensemble based episodes Science breakthrough development for Shamy Shamy drunk together Closure for their previous project that they started and never finished Sheldon interacting with Amy’s parents Cooper / Fowler gathering of some kind (with parents & siblings) Flash forward episode of the gangs kids describing what it was like being raised by their parents and “Uncle Raj” Fun with Flags episode Developement on Amy & Howard’s project Development on Shamy’s current project Shamy career achievements The names of Shamy’s children Sheldon helping Amy with a crisis (a la Isolation Permutation) Sheldon so overcome with happiness that he kisses her Shamy making everyone feel awkward (because that’s their thing) causing everyone to leave and Shamy wondering why. Amy actually loving one of Sheldon’s movies and quoting from it to get her way about something Sheldon getting so hot and bothered by her intelligence that he grabs her hand and leads her to the bedroom. Somebody from their group hearing them from the hallway and annoyed/flabbergasted that “they’re at it again.” Shamy tea time Shamy date nights while they’re all dressed up. Double date with Raj and some random girl. Raj gets all bent out of shape over their weirdness but his date thinks they’re adorable. Decorating their Christmas tre together Sheldon hanging mistletoe and leading Amy to it and kissing her passionately underneath it Cooking a meal together in the kitchen Cuddling on the sofa (preferably one that the bought together and looks more comfortable for Sheldon (Jim) to sit on.

    And sometimes they're even more magic when read or acted aloud. We have a saying here, 'The pictures are better on the radio'.

    Thanks! 😊 It's honestly one of the main things I have been thinking about from the finale and going into next season. Probably the Shamy project and whether or not Denise sticks around and perhaps has a relationship with Stuart. I actually think there could be some potential there, well as much as there can be considering the status of the characters on the show.

    I don't like the direction the show has gone in. Since around Season 7. But I don't think their is a correlation between a bad script. And/or the actors Liking the writing or not. ITs subjective. Sometimes you watch bad movies, but is carried by the acting. And Vice Versa. I Think the show peaked in S6, in terms of creativity. Alot of TBBT since S7. Has been very recycled in story, and in characterization. But I Still enjoy the show. If I did not, I Wouldent visit this site every day. And still watch the show 😏.
