    That's what I did for Season 11. And indeed there were a few (admittedly not many). Could also be my limited perspective. (Not in cronological order)

    I hope you'll all bear with me a moment because I'm about to get personal but it does relate to what Sheldon says about his dad to Mary before the wedding. My dad walked out on my mom, my sister and me when I was 3 years old. He had no contact with us at all, not even a birthday or Christmas card. Then we reconnected when I was a young adult and visited occasionally. He also got to meet my own two children but nothing was ever going to make up for growing up without a dad and, if I'm honest, I never really forgave him for that. Despite this it was nice that he was back in my life. Then he passed away suddenly of a heart attack just after his 60th birthday ( that was over 20 years ago ) and, despite everything, I miss him. Anyway....my point is that I can totally understand when Sheldon says that he misses his dad despite knowing what he did in the past.

    I wish we could have seen the look on everyone's faces when they played that voicemail. Now I'm really disappointed that this wasn't a 40 minute episode. 😞 All I can do is hope the Amy, Penny and Bernadette bridal suite scene is released too. And that the DVD would include the entire episode too.

    From the YS thread, but this might be relevant to our interests here as well: http://www.tvguide.com/news/young-sheldon-baby-reveal/ Young Sheldon Revealed Something Huge About Sheldon's Future [...] Young Sheldon co-creator Steven Molaro told TV Guide about how the children decision was made. There was the opportunity for cross-show synergy by having the revelation come the same night as the wedding that he didn't want to go to waste, of course. But Molaro and co-creator Chuck Lorre have also been thinking about where Sheldon is in his life as he's narrating Young Sheldon. Molaro was talking with Lance Barber — who plays Sheldon's father George Sr. — about how George Sr. seems a lot nicer than we would have thought based on what Sheldon has said about him on The Big Bang Theory, and that got them thinking about how Sheldon having kids of his own would change his perspective on his father. "I think that some of these stories adult Sheldon is telling us through young Sheldon are reflections on 'now that I have my own children, maybe I'm seeing that world through my Dad's eyes more clearly than I had,'" Molaro says. "Those thoughts had been on my mind for awhile, and I think that's what led to that final line of the season." It's an idea Molaro has taken from his own life. "I've got two boys," Molaro says, "and I remember being 11 years old and your parents are like these gods to you, and then when my son was 11, my feeling about myself was 'oh no, I don't know what I'm doing! I have no idea what's going on. Is that what my father felt like when I was 11?' It really starts to change your perspective on a lot of things. And I think some of that is what we're seeing on Young Sheldon." (We saw it a little bit during the Big Bang finale, too, when Sheldon said he missed his deceased father and wished he could be there. His attitude is already softening.) [...] I quite like that take on dad!Sheldon. The show will probably not last long enough to get there but it's still nice to think about how Sheldon might mature further.

    Absolutely nothing funny about that call and nothing poignant either. Well maybe for a YS fan it is different. Sure didn’t sound like the same woman we saw.

    Yeah, the onIy complaint I have read on-line about the finaIe, and I've read that IiteraIIy everywhere, not just in fan sites, aIso in reviews or recaps, was that it shouId have been a double episode; there are so many cut scenes that were worth watching! Two back-to-back episodes wouId have been wonderful, maybe they couId have saved one new episode in a not sweep period for this occasion. I don't watch that show, but apparentIy Mom season finaIe that same day was a double episode.

    I enjoyed 11X24 thoroughly, but after I watched these TWO unaired clips, I wish they could make the wedding episode a 40 minutes special finale. Really. Now, compare to these two scenes, and other plots which didn't make it into 11X24, the pink-eye plot from 11X23 seems like a huge waste of time, IMO.

    I can't get into this since I never watched 8 Simple Rules. I've never even seen one ep. I did see a few Married With Children eps and didn't like them at all. The fat jokes were way over the top and down right nasty. No hooker or bully jokes stand out for me this season so I'd agree with that. But I think they still have drunk jokes occasionally that are not necessary. I am one of the few people who did not like the first couple of seasons. I actually didn't watch much of it and when I got into the show later I had to play catch up. But I know I didn't like it as much in 1-3 as in 4-6. I'm not entirely happy with this because it proves to me that they are changing what they said on TBBT to make YS more palatable...about Sheldon's dad and about him starting a family. http://www.tvguide.com/news/young-sheldon-baby-reveal/

    My main wish is for them to finally give in and embrace their different interests rather than fight it and criticise. I’ve always said Lenny is so similar to my wife and I. We are very different people with very different interests but 26 years of marriage has taught us to accept those differences and enjoy each other finding unexpected joy in unfamiliar experiences. On our trip to US last year, she unexpectedly nerded out at all the space and science museums she initially resisted. I went along and revelled in her joy at meeting the Cake Boss in Hoboken and cooking in New Orleans. I’ve endured 25 years of sitting through episodes of Bold and the Beautiful with her but found funny ways to engage in conversations about the ridiculousness of it all. After years of flying solo at trivia nights mrs itwas has joined me in recent years and contributed in her own way and enjoys it. And our trials and tribulations in pushing each other and the resulting reactions have been bloody hilarious. Plenty of comedy in our different lives. That’s what I want to see in the Lenny marriage in season 12. Finding common interests through risking it instead of staying distant and sitting around 4a doing nothing. And now back to the cave for another 3 months. [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Unless there were agreement on how to define quality it is really pointless to debate on if it has improved or declined. It is the ratings that the advertisers care about so they are important even if someone thinks they are bunk. Having said all that by my definition the quality of the show has improved. They have dropped the fat jokes, the hooker jokes, drunk jokes and most the bully jokes.

    A little more clarification from Broadway World on why TBITB was cancelled on Saturday rather than having an understudy go on for Jim. In the preview period they are fine tuning the play, script, blocking lighting etc. Once they are happy with it, they "freeze" the play...they nail down the final product that they will perform on opening night and through the rest of the shows run. Once the show is " frozen" they will rehearse the understudies to step into the polished show, if necessary Even though understudies were cast, they were unprepared to appear on stage at this point in time.

    What she diddn't sound like a Raging Lunatic LOL. As far as the quality of the show currently. Look divided forum I guess some think the show is still barnstorming great! Some think the writing went off a cliff a few seasons back. I am in the latter camp. As for the jokes. Well only a few eps back. They reference Penny using her "assets" to gt drinks. So clearly they drop them in still. But those jokes never bothered me in the first three seasons. I was a Two and a half men fan before TBBT came along LOL. So I guess those kinda jokes were kinda tame in comparison. And tbh before coming to this forum. It never occured to me drunk jokes e.t.c. Could b seen as offensive to som ppl. I mostly found them hilarous. But I guess if your more conservative. But to me the drop or rise in quality is not attributed to what jokes they have dropped. But the overall quality of the writing. I just simply felt the story telling in the first three seasons was more unique. They always used to break down sitcom clichies, tropes, and stereotypes. So well. That is what I loved so much about the first three seasons. And part of the reason why I got into Lenny. I've felt ova the years. The shows fallen into a trap. Of being too tropey, and relying on sitcom tropes, and other clichies. But that is just me.

    Regarding Lenny babies. We already know that Leonard and Penny want to have kids. So, the question is not if they want to have kids, but when they will start to have them... So one wish for season 12 on my list: Let Leonard and Penny have serious talks about kids, that build upon the examples I gave above.

    I think most of my wishes have been covered. I would like to see more substantial hints about future Lenny children, even if it's just some indication that they are thinking about it and feel they are ready. Hope you all have a great summer. I'll probably be commenting even less than usual...plan on making the most of this summer now that I won't have to do multiple 7 hour drives to Toronto for health reasons...

    Maybe we get some flasback scenes in one episode from s12 that makes sense to remember some events related with the wedding. There are a few things that would be great if we got a glimpse, even in a quick flasback. My expectations are not high but I keep them, as we had a few old flashback scenes for the britcoin plot.

    THIS! OMG These were so terrible in early seasons I couldn't stand it. The show sure had moments of brilliance in its earlier seasons but it was also stuffed full of these old rotten jokes taken from the garbage dump of comedy. Yikes!

    Watching their relationship grow in front of my eyes all these years has to be one of the most incredible and amazing feelings for me. Their development, their commitment with each other, their love. Shamy has inspired us all and I can only be thankful for all this and their story. ❤

    I get this totally. My dad was an alcoholic and when he was drunk he could be physically abusive to my mother and brother and sexually abusive to me. He was like Jekyll and Hyde depending on if he was drunk or sober. He died horribly and after he was gone, I didn't want to just remember all the bad stuff. I found happier moments to hang on to. I do miss him at certain times of the year and came to terms with him at least thirty years ago. There's no rancor left.

    May turn up a few times during hiatus. There’s that slight sense of joy and happiness between seasons that I can enjoy and embrace before the depressing reality of Sheldon induced Lenny suppression sets in during the season that brings everyone down. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Great list the only things I can think besides these are. Leonard arranges a surprise birthday party for Penny. Leonard & Penny , find a hobby or interest that they enjoy doing together. I'd like to see Penny's locket again. I'd also like to see the snowflake one last time before the show ends.

    I have finaly watched season finale of YS and I would like to add my thoughts here as they are somehow connected to Adult Sheldon and Amy. I think it was cute the way the YS season finale was in sync with Shamy wedding. I watch Ys but tbh I enjoy it but not love it as I do about tbbt for the canon things that have been "adapted"for both shows sake. Some facts makes sense as a child has a different way to understand some things than adults do but some are too forced. For example, in tbbt season finale when Sheldon said he missed his father imo it was not necessay as it sounded out of box. But I think I may get used to these "adaptations" because Tbbt has a few inconsistences too we got used through all these years. So carry on. So I always wondered if the ys narrator Sheldon was an already father Sheldon and in light of that , most of the canon "adaptations" would make more sense, you know. We got that detail in YS season finale and I think it was the puzzle piece I was seeking since first episode for understand the way George sr is being portraited. A person got a softer way to see some things when a child come to their lives, whoever they are sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, etc. However I hope the facts womanizer and drunker George won't be too much "soften" in next seasons of both shows. It would be a bad move and certainly the writers may keep these facts about Sheldon 's father as nobody is perfect and must not get perfect because he died and now Sheldon is a father. Really hope they find a nice move for that as they found as they revealed the YS narrator is a married and father Sheldon. Anyway, I could not comment about our Shamy having children ( plural, it sounds so good!!) without watching YS season finale first. I loved to know that and even we might not see Shamy children on tbbt, we know they will exist!! Even I still keep my hope of see a glimpse of them in last episode of tbbt though. And last but not least... hearing Sheldon say "my wife" on YS was so sweet. Can not wait for he say it in S12! ❤️

    Yes, I agree, that the one thing that can't be misinterpreted; which makes me ask, when the episode about the reason why SheIdon knocks three times aired, they were aIready in taIks for YS, so why did the writers decide to go there? That piece of information for sure didn't do any good to George Sr's characterization; there had been other instances in earlier seasons when his infidelities and drinking problems were mentioned, but that was the most unsettIing thing said about him, and it happened in the period when a "nicer" version of him was created. I wonder what are the writers' pIans about it; maybe they won't have time to develop that time in SheIdon's Iife, that's true, but TBBT has been airing for 11 seasons and counting, so you'II never know.

    I don't think I've ever read a fanfic that was actually written as sitcom material. Sure, some were funny in places but by far not with the joke density this show would require. Fanfic stories are often more written as drama or soap opera (and I don't mean that as an insult) in terms of handling their characters and subject matter. Sometimes the tone shift alone makes everyone feel terribly OOC. So I agree with you that fanfic writers are not a good substitute here.

    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.

    I've been watching Mom, and ironically, Mom had two "separated" episodes, and the plots were separated too, as in they could make the two episodes in two weeks, easily. So, now, I'm really pissed. UGH.

    Yes! Yes. And the jokes about Howard's mother made me cringe. One of the interesting things about "The Simpsons" is that they deliberately avoided standard 'insult' jokes.

    Focus on Pennys Career Road Trip Penny Pregnancy Plot. If S12 is the last season. Could see this being the major story arch for them. Kaley playing a different side of being pregnant. Yes would b funny. Getting really hormonal. And needing Leonard. If you catch my drift lol. Maybe could reveal it at the end of the 12th premeire with a alone Penny scene, that Penny is pregnant. Leonard getting Tenure or Becoming a Professor More Lenny having Dinner Watching TV

    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.
