    So ive just typed up what feels like a essay but i figure this is my last taping i go to so might as well do the spoilers right lol here you go and if its too much sorry in advance 😂😂😂 Cold open is the whole gang in 4A sheldon and Amy saying how by the end of the honeymoon they were like a real married couple the good kind like on tv not lile Amys parents, howard makes a joke about how they're not a real married couple until shes ok with him peeing with the door open, bernadettes not happy with it either. Sheldon and amy got them "gifts" they all got 1 love NY teeshirts, they forgot to buy gifts so sheldon bought them on the plane, theres a line here about how NY could stand for anything not just new york. sheldon was bored googling stuff on the plane. He bought penny a xxl, shes annoyed, amy smacks him on the arm and says i told you, he says something like yes dear. Next scene is sheldon and amy opening wedding gifts and writing thankyou cards, sheldons written 16 and his wrist is hurting, they open leonard and pennys, saying its the perfect gift for a perfect couple, its a strange crystal object, amy shakes it, sheldon tells her to lick it cause it might be candy, amy asks if it could be a "marital aid" he asks what they could use a crystal shaft for 😂 I get a bit blurry here about the order of the scenes but ill try to remember lol It goes to the comic book store raj and Howard are watching stuart and denise flirt, raj asks whats wrong with stuarts face, howard points out hes smiling raj then tells howard he caught them making out at sheldons wedding. Stuart and Denise have a awkward goodbye and they ask if hes gunna ask her out, he doesnt know, raj says a big spiel about love which ends with him saying dont end up eating pringles on the toilet while your dog watches or something similar. Sheldon and amy are in bed, they cant sleep because they cant figure out what the present is. Sheldon wants to ask, amy says it would offend leonard and penny as its supposed to be perfect for them, sheldon doesnt care, she says they wont think youre a genius and he agrees not to ask. Eventually they get back up to tear up the box for clues, Sheldon is liking married life. Howard and bernadettes kitchen, bernadette asks whats wrong with stuarts face hes still smiling. Hes happy because he asked denise out and she said yes. Theres a couple jokes in here about personal grooming and stuff but i cant remember it too well, its funny though. Sheldon is hand delivering a thankyou card to leonard and penny trying to get info out of them. They ask if he knows what it is, he says yes and hes going to go use it then takes off out the door. Penny wonders if theyre being mean leonard thinks its funny. Sheldon screams from next door "what are you!" Howards in the Caltech cafeteria, sheldon ask him if he knows what the present is, he does sheldon doesnt want to know because theyve figured it out. Its the first clue to a scavenger hunt that will lead them to their actual gift, howard says thats right. Sheldon leaves happy thanking a approaching leonard on his way. Raj and leonard sit with howard. Leonard is still laughing, Raj wants to know what it was. Its the present that howard and bernadette gave him and penny for their wedding, raj asks if its the crystal chakra(i think thats the word) he gave them for their wedding, it is. Howard lied about them liking it. Sheldon and amy in berts office hes looking at the gift its quartz, they search what it could mean. Its based on a german word the same but spelt without a T. They decide the next stop is the coffee shop where they first met. Stuarts comic book shop, he asks raj for advice about his date, i cant remember much about this except it ends with raj being really down about being alone (was quite sad actually), stuart asks if he should fake a phone call and leave then does. Sheldon and amy going into the coffee shop, they are trying to figure out where their clue could be, they see the table they first met at. Theres a couple sitting there but they approach anyway looking for the clue, sheldon finds gum under the table. Amy goes to ask the barista if anything was left. Sheldon tells the couple this is where he met his wife and if they play their cards right they could be married in 8 years, turns out they're brother & sister. They redid this line a few times last time was sheldon saying font advertise that, he also said use protection in one shot. Amy has the lost and found box, the barista gave it to her when she asked if anything was left for them. They think its because they were lost until they found each other. Inside the box theres a chain with a locket with a stone, Amy thinks its quartz, no pictures inside sheldon says so they can fill it with their own memories, he also finds sunglasses in the box he thinks they were left for him because their future is so bright. He puts them on they smile at each other, hold hands and (basically 😂) skip out. Howard and bernadettes kitchen, stuart knocks asks them not to laugh. Hes orange, he got his hair dyed but it made him look pale so got a tan, hes tried washing it off and has tells them they'll need new towels, floormats, and a toilet seat. Howard makes a couple oompa loompa jokes. Raj skypes his dad, he wants him to set him up with a wife, after a small convo he agrees as long as raj stops posting photos of him and his dog in matching outfits. Back in 4A Sheldon and amy are thanking leonard and penny for the gift. Shes showing them the pictures of herself and sheldon theyve put in the locket. They are confused. Sheldon has a special thankyou card for them. He and Amy look so happy in this scene. The thankyou note theyve written is in sandskrit, but not regular sandskrit, they cant use the internet to translate it either as they are locked out of the wifi and the new password is in the card. Leonard isnt having fun anymore. Raj comes in and tells them hes getting married, they all react different, penny just says no. He describes the girl and how he just needs to hide his true self for 8 to 10 dates and its happening. Sheldon knows what hes getting them for a wedding present. Tag scene is stuart knocking on denises door for their date. She laughs he says he wanted to look his best and made a series of errors. She still wants to go out with him. She says maybe she can help him find nemo. They walk down the hall shes making orange jokes, he asks if shes going to do it all night she is. He asks if she feels like chinese for dinner she says she feels like orange chicken. And thats the episode, my friend has a very good memory for details so was filling in bits while i went lol Bts stuff there were a few mess ups, mayim seemed in a great mood chatting with Melissa and simon and her and jim were joking around alot. Jim looked like he was struggling early then got into it. I thought they were going to start laughing when she was holding the crystal thing and they had to stare at it, and when jim put the sunglasses on. They filmed a promo of the gang sitting around eating, they had to look like they were talking and laughing. Johnny and kaley looked really sad when they did their speeches both were tearing up thanking everyone for their support and thanking all the crew etc. Curtain call they all came out together holding hands.

    Here you go anyone wanting spoilers 😄 The opening scene is so cute its sheldon waking Amy up in bed saying good morning wife and she says good morning husband, then he makes a comment about how its official they've consummated it and something about hanging the bedsheets out the window. They start their honeymoon in lego land and then go on to new york. Sheldon keeps scheduling everything including their coitus eventually amy gets mad and tells him she wants it to be spontaneous, they have a little argument, he explains himself( its very sweet in a very sheldon way) and amy says he can schedule everything as long as he doesn't tell her. Amy makes a science comment sheldon gets turned on and takes her back to their hotel. Lennys plot is the whole gang find amys dad has been hiding from her mum in shamys apartment. amys mum turns up later mad looking for him. Hes hiding, Leonard penny and mrs Fowler find him hiding, he doesnt want to go back, he wants a break. Penny cant understand how they are together, Leonard thinks their relationship is similar, they end up in a little argument. Penny thinks the fowlers are the weirdest couple they know and they know sheldon and amy, howard and bernadette and raj and his little "twitchy" dog, eventually mrs fowler tells penny how much fun theyre gunna have together and penny makes mr fowler leave. Raj is being interviewed by a local news station about a upcoming meteor shower, he spends his whole time talking about neil degrasse tyson, howard and bernadette watch on tv. Raj ends up in a twitter fight with him, the tag scene is neil calling raj theres some funny convo before they hang up and neil then calls bill nye.

    First all scenes were in swing sets, hard to see. Mayim was not there, maybe because of holiday. Still fun. Pre-taped, Shamy in apt, Sheldon is photoshopping people in their wedding pictures, the Wright brothers, and he get a email from Tam. He is coming to CalTech with his son who will be attending school there and wants to see Sheldon. Amy asks who Tam is, Sheldon is very angry at Tam and won't tell Amy why. In Bernadette's office, Penny and Bernadette want to check out Anu, Bernie calls her dad to do a police check on her, he says no. Pre-taped, Amy asks the gang in Lenny's apt, what they know about Tam, they haven't heard about him, but check Sheldon's enemy list. They find Tam and it only says he knows why. They decide to find him on campus. Penny and Bernadette go to the hotel where Anu works to check her out, they make plans with her to go out to dinner. She gets reservation for a hard to get into restaurant and Bernadette says if she can get in anywhere why would she want to marry Raj. Pre-taped, at CalTech Quad, the boys check out every Asian man until they find Tam. They ask about Sheldon and he is unaware Sheldon is angry at him. Sheldon comes over and calls the boys traitors and says Tams knows why I am mad and Tam says no I don't. Penny, Bernadette, and Anu is nice restaurant. See LaBron James. They talk and Anu says she tried falling in love and it didn't work and thought my parents are happy, I should do it their way. Sheldon's office, Leonard and Sheldon talking about how it stupid for Sheldon to angry at Tam and Leonard for taking Tam's side. Pre-taped, Shamy in apt taking about why he is angry. He seems when he came to California, Tam was supposed to come too, but he stayed in Texas with his girlfriend. Amy says it worked out okay, you have new friends and a good life. Back in the restaurant, the girls are drunk and Anu is questioning them about why is Raj still single. They say many embarrassing things, like bathing with his dog, crying while listening to music, and others. Sheldon's office, Sheldon forgives Tam and Tam says I didn't know you where angry. When I didn't come to California I knew you would do well and I was in love with my wife wanted to stay in Texas. I have had a good life. Sheldon responses you are so brave. Cafe, Tam is leaving and Sheldon makes Leonard drive him to the airport. In Bernadette's office, Bernadette is showing Penny a blur in LaBron's intsagram photo and says it's her. The phone rings and Raj yells why did you tell Anu I use Secret deodorant, it was secret. Don't talk to her anymore. The girls decide to see Anu again to fix it, maybe she can get them in another fancy restaurant. Sorry I left out most of the jokes, it was funny. At least, you the plot.

    Had a great time, some very funny lines. As we already have all the information I won't repeat it here except for the title: The Confirmation Polarization. Ok, I'm going to give a recap of each scene, where I remember specifics (or can paraphrase) I'll add those. I'm not going to vouch for pinpoint accuracy. Cold Open. Shamy doing a fun with flags episode (don't get too excited, it was very short, basically leading into the episode). Sheldon apologizes for Amy, because she claimed there was never a flag with a purple stripe. Sheldon points out there was, I believe it was Lithuania, a country that had one, and he shows the flag. Amy then apologizes for Sheldon, for having his fly open the entire previous episode. The wanted to take questions, and Sheldon told Amy to take off her glasses, so her password isn't visible. She takes off her glasses, but then can't read the emails. She puts them back on and finds an email from Fermilab (at this Sheldon says that's near Chicago, the Windy City, a good city for flags. Amy says no, it seems two scientists have confirmed their theory. They start going back and forth getting louder and louder saying " We did it." When it gets really loud, there is a cut to the rest of the gang in the hallway, and Penny says, "Awwwww, remember when they only did it on Amy's Birthday." Scene 1 The gang (minus Shamy) are eating. Howard wants to brag on Bernie, but Bernie says he doesn't need to. Everyone shuts up and eats, Bernie looks around and complains no one is asking her about it. Leonard finally asks, and Bernie says her project has passed all the FDA tests. Then the rest ask which project and she keeps saying no (a really funny one was, Penny I think, asked about her eye drops and she said no, they had to re-brand it as some sort of industrial cleaner). Finally she tells them and that it is good luck for Penny, as Bernadette wants Penny to head the sales team for the drug. You can tell Penny is not really enthused about the idea. Penny keeps issuing weak reasons for not doing it, and Bernadette keeps saying things like "That sounds like a yes to me." Finally, Shamy comes rushing in all excited and ask if they all know what happened. Raj says, "You did it." (thinking of sex), and they say "Yes we did" (thinking of their paper). Then Sheldon says "We didn't even know we did it". Howard goes "Wait, what?" Then Amy says, we had to have two professors from Chicago tell us we did it" and Leonard gets this strange look on his face and says, "Wait, what?". Then Jim started explaining about the theory and what led the other two to figure it out. And, he screwed up. So, they restarted, and he screwed up again. He looked at the script, said Ok, and they restarted, and he screwed up again. Someone in the audience went "Awwwwwww", feeling bad for Jim, and Jim said "Don't Awwwww me, I can keep you here all night." and everyone laughed. Then he started again, and screwed up again. He finally gets through it, and after a long sentence of large scientific terms, Penny says "Wait, what?" Scene 2 Later, Penny and Leonard are cleaning up. Leonard mentions it's funny seeing Penny wash dishes. Penny says she knows how to do it, she just get tired and leaves them. Leonard goes, "are you using any soap?" Penny says "Then you do it." Leonard asks Penny about why she didn't take the job offer from Bernadette. Penny says Bernadette is mean, that she can be hard on her subordinates, and Penny doesn't want to have to work that way. Scene 3 Shamy goes to President Siebert's office. The first time they went through it, Joshua Molina (Siebert) rose and opened his arms behind the desk, and said "bring it in" Sheldon said "bring what in?", and Amy explained it was for a hug, and he said "No, don't bring it in." Then Siebert explains that the two scientists would be visiting, and "we" wanted to write up Nobel paperwork. Sheldon asked if he meant "we" indicating him and Amy, or "we" indicating all three of them. Siebert explained Caltech had 38 Nobel laureates and they won, they would be the 39th an 40th. Sheldon wants to be 39, and Amy says it doesn't matter. He agrees it doesn't matter, but then winks at Siebert. There was a rather long pause, then they restarted. This time Molina didn't open his arms until he was around the dest. Mayim laughed and said can we restart. So they restarted and there were a couple of changes (opening his arms later, some minor dialog changes). Then there was another long wait, they restarted and there were some more changes. the one I remember was after Sheldon's "we's", Siebert said "we" or "we" it doesn't matter. Then Amy says "Wheeeeeeeeeee" before continuing. Scene 4 (pretaped) Penny stops by Bernadette's office to tell Bernadette, she talked to her boss and she didn't want to let Penny go, as her area was short. Bernadette offers to call her boss to get her released. Penny says, "You don't have to call her, It's no big deal." Bernadette, "You don't want to work for me?" Penny: "No, it's not that, were just short, darn it. Remember don't call my boss. Bernadette: "Look if you want to work on this with me, I can call her." Penny: "No, I'm like darn it, but you don't have to call. I just don't want to leave her short of salespeople, remember, don't call her. And Penny leaves. To Be continued...

    @spidergirl : Your post brought yet more tears. As we have come to "the end" we will begin to fall away from something that for better or worse has sort of become our online home for TBBT content. We agree; we disagree; we argue; we make-up (and sometimes don't), but we all have something in common: our love for this (as Mrs. Wolowitz would say) furcocktah television show. I just want to say now that I wish every single one of you as we make our exit (whenever we do so) peace, joy, love and happiness!!!

    They are all terrific friends to each other, despite their exaggerated flaws and occasional ( there have been 268 episodes and 15/12/9 years of relationships to spread it out) bad behaviour. These individual instances of poor treatment of friends are often overblown examples of things that life long friends in real life experience and forgive and forget, with the odd example that may have gone too far e.g. the behind the back girl stuff re Stephanie and Priya and fantasising about friends girls. The humour staple of this show as I think we can all agree is playful ( sometimes hurtful) put downs, jibes and teasing and cutting observations of each others’ lives. We are IMHO way more sensitive about their treatment of each other than they obviously are. Other than a Penny punch to Howard’s face, a ‘Panty piñata’ showdown, an occasional one episode walkout, a swinging handbag, a Carpark fight, a YouTube punch on, a side kick inspired wrestling match, a public spat at a conference panel, a few pranks and name calls and I’m sure a few others I can’t recall, most of their responses to the daily snark are just just dirty looks, eye rolls and shrugs. But amongst all that - and my wife and friends have put up with smartarse comments from me for decades and let it slide - they have done a lot for each other. Lead insulter that he is, Sheldon has financially supported Penny, given her advice she’s appreciated, supported her when Leonard hasn’t been around. He’s saved Raj from deportation and provided company when Raj has needed. He fought for recognition for Howard on the gyroscope project, gave him emotional support when and after his mum died, and set up a fund for Holly. He clearly respects Bernie and was able to give her something the others couldn’t see with that D&D adventure he made for her. Despite putting Leonard down constantly, he has also been a support in many situations and regardless of what we see ON screen, being in constant contact with someone for 15+ years is a real friendship. Main target though she is, Penny has consistently been a support for Sheldon from Season 1, saved Amy from a life of loneliness while also putting up with a lot of crap from her, even when Priya was around, Penny helped out Leonard and gave him lots of support before they got together. She always drops everything she is doing when her friends need her. Leonard, despite his weaknesses, will do anything for everyone. Despite many setbacks, he was always a shoulder to lean on for Penny in the early years and did more than a parent for Sheldon. He’s often seen as the leader of the group. Despite their faults, Amy and Bernie have been great friends to Penny. I don’t think she would have survived season 4 without them. They have also talked up Leonard to her when required ( and yes also put him down ) and Bernie did help Penny grow up by getting her that job. Howard and Raj are harder to pin down other than just being good guys to hang around with that are less hassle than Sheldon but when required they listen and support. Obviously they are great support to each other as well as Bernadette as they have become the secondary friendship group as support to the Lenny/Shamy main act. My point is, we can all find examples of shitty behaviour as friends, but deep down, despite the the edgier Chuck Lorre show humour that makes them appear far from perfect friends, I think they are just as good friends as the 6 from Friends.

    Penny wouldn't be the first to insist it was 'an accident' when in reality it happened 'accidentally-on purpose', which is a saying where I grew up. It saves face when you don't want to tell people your first declaration was sincere but only up to a point. The fields I've worked in, both professionally and voluntarily, have taught me that Lenny's situation is as common as chips (fries ) on a Friday. Maternal instinct v self-preservation can be a two-way street. Bernadette would not need any explanation, given her own history and mixed feelings about it and Amy would accept without quibble that Penny had been sloppy or careless. The men would be pleased for Leonard regardless, if they gave it any thought at all. Note that Penny had never been sterilised although she could have well afforded it and had not sent Leonard for the snip either. She obviously wasn't on the pill, although she's much more organised in her life than she was when she was younger and would have remembered to take it every day. She hadn't had an implant either, nor was she on annual jabs. When she realised she had run the risk of pregnancy - assuming it was true she didn't know what she was doing - she didn't raid her sample store or dash to the pharmacist for a morning-after pill. And good lord, how many times have we seen her drunk and wanting sex ? This time she wasn't even drunk that we knew of, since Sheldon reminded her she was driving, which the writers hadn't had him do before. But drunken accident is her story and she's sticking to it, and blaming her husband to his face. Objectively, Penny's declaration out of the blue in 1203 that she didn't want children was bizarre to start with. She'd never been shown as hard-nosed or anti-motherhood. There didn't appear to be any reason. For instance, pregnancy needn't have interfered with her career just as she was beginning to like it : she could take as short a maternity leave as she wanted and there's a brilliant nursery at Caltech. She's always been a maternal sort, even in the early seasons when she was an irresponsible flibbertigibbet. She can deal with Sheldon and is the stablest among female friends who include the cleverest women on the planet. She's lovely to Raj, the wobbly doctor of astrophysics. And they all love her. She knows her husband may be superbly intelligent but has his weaknesses and with few lapses treats her as if he thinks he's a lucky sod to have wooed and won her. She can hold her own with geniuses and what's more has met all their living parents. She should know she could knock any of their mothers into a cocked hat. However, she was put on the spot by Leonard and like an uncertain racehorse or an insecure show-jumper, she refused a fence she wasn't confident enough to take. Motherhood, especially of a genius's children, was a big thing for Penny to face, and any misgivings she had kept down naturally surfaced then. She was suddenly having to think seriously about it. The future was upon her. Would she be up to raising an academically-inclined family if she needed to ? Whoever they took after, becoming someone's mother would be the final settling-down, the end of desirable - 'doable' as she called-it - hot, cool, fanciable Penny whom she was already beginning to miss. What she once saw as her chief, perhaps only, assets would be gone. So, rebelling against what others expected of her was the order of the day. It was the easy way out. She could be child-free, keep her time to herself for putting on her make-up and doing her nails, go on trips alone or with her husband, meet her friends as much as she liked, drink as much as she wanted, be free to do her exercises and her yoga and go for runs, and spend her own money on herself. Carrying on with the status quo. Losing nothing. But perhaps that certainty didn't last. Most women who've ever been independent think about what they'll be giving up in order to become mothers. But they go ahead anyway, which is why so many of us are here. Sometimes when they're changing nappies at dawn they remember what their pre-children lives were like and look forward to the day when they're all at school or even to when they've left home. Those who start to regain themselves after raising children to school age sometimes feel broody again in spite of everything. They don't want another one really, but end up pleased when the annoyance at the failed birth control wears off. Penny will have heard all this from colleagues at work, just like we all did - and I daresay those young enough are still hearing it. I think, Penny being Penny as we know her, finally put her mind to weighing things up. There were losses and gains however she looked at it. Best thing was to carry on with the decision she'd made, but just in case, leave things to the hands of fate : do nothing medical or surgical to reinforce her child-free position. If conception was 'meant' and in her stars, then she'd be reconciled to it. Complain, protest, blame your husband, curse your stars at first, and then announce that you were more pleased than you thought you'd be, despite what you'd previously chosen. Jump that fence this time. BTW not telling people as early as two months is quite normal, at least here in UK. When I started work the fourth month or even later was usual. Official confirmation by a doctor didn't happen until after three missed periods and even then it wasn't always right. Now that there's a scan at about nine weeks to check it's really a baby growing there, it's earlier, true. I can see why Lenny would want to wait for the questions until they got home from Sweden, however. As it happens, it doesn't matter that their friends and much of the world's public already know : anecdotally it appears that discomfort and lots of sickness at this stage bodes for a successful outcome.

    I don't think they deserve a round of applause just for showing a childless couple for the sake of showing a childless couple and doing so in an IMO incredibly lousy way. It would've been a whole other story if they had Penny have this opinion or doubt wanting children around season 7 and have Leonard gradually come to terms with that, over a long enough time, and decide to marry her, convincing viewers that the couple won't carry this burden forever. At the very least they could've done the out of the blue change of mind better than "Oh I've had some thoughts over a few weeks and now I've changed my mind over a major life decision I haven't shown doubts about before."

    I think the series lost completely its originality in the first place and became an ordinary sitcom. The characters have changed too much. They now feel dumbed down for a broader appeal. It was my absolute favorite and also the only show because of how different the characters were and how clever the writing was. This quality has clearly declined. What made the show stand out to me from other sitcoms is gone. At this point I'm just going to keep watching because I'm here in this forum and I'll be here until it ends (that seems to be the best consolation to me now).

    Sorry for the late reply. Well, it is actually Bernie who encourages Howard to do his magic again “professionally” (!). It is sweet but she soon regrets it 😉. I am hesitant to give away the jokes. I am not good with spoilers myself and most of the time I regret having read them...

    My work ID! I found this wonky, imperfect little snowflake and taped to the underside of my work ID which I always have with me. I've been carrying it for so long, the snowflake started out silver and is now oxidized. My feelings about Lenny: perfectly imperfect!

    Feeling bittersweet about the end of this show. Admitally it has not been the same show, and their was a drop off point around the sixth season. And I know we've had all our shipping wars over the years lol. But all these characters even Sheldon, have contributed to the success of this show. The show was a well oiled machine, take one character away it does not work. Sheldon does not work without Leonard or Penny, and vice versa. This forum, and really the community has been a big part of my life since 2013. I am hoping this site can continue. Shows end, but the characters can keep a show alive. Through its audience.

    What I will miss the most with the show ending is all the discussion with members from all over the world on this forum. Sure we don't always agree on various things but we all have the same love to the show.

    The writers have been known to leave story lines unaddressed for an episode or two, so who knows what will be next. But I don’t think that plotline is necessarily finished.

    I know people have strong feelings about this episode (and they're all justified) but for me, this was such a great Amy episode. She asserted how important her field was to her, we got to see her be excited about it and called out sheldon for being selfish, a known flaw in his character, but for me, one of her own flaws was addressed. Now this is just me, but Amy is not the best at being vulnerable. Getting angry, that she's great at but expressing fears and insecurities is not her strong suit. She'll either joke or be matter-of-fact about talking about her lonely past, both clear methods of detaching the emotion from it. Here, not only did she call sheldon out on his crap but she expressed her fear of losing herself. The best part IMO, she wouldn't have done that if sheldon had let her go back to sleep. By stressing how important it was for their marriage to talk about it, it opened the door for her to be honest both with him and herself. Sheldon's "Thank you for explaining" tells me this is the first time she's ever told him that. A tired plot? Absolutely. but it explored Amy as a character and I loved it. Also, them passing math notes in the beginning like giggly teenagers was the best.

    A sitcom needs an antagonist in the mix. That is Sheldon's role. If TBBT had been about Penny, Leonard and Leonard's extremely polite and considerate genius room mate where would the show have gone....no where. So even as they have evolved Sheldon, they continue to use him as the antagonist to create humor.

    Ok, thank you 👌, you are are wonderful for explaining this to me. It is appreciated. I get that that not everyone thinks that Sheldon and Amy would be good parents. Not perfect. But who is? I guess you want my reasoning or data on why I think they would be good parents? They are in a loving, stable, relationship. They have good communication with one another. Meaning they both know they are on the same page about wanting kids and how they will be raised. Sheldon says 15 kids, but Amy will make him realize that 3 kids will fit his devisable by three desire. Sheldon will be king of diaper changes, bathing and feeding, playtime and assisting with homework. Babies need a schedule. Who better than Sheldon for a timely schedule. Money is not an issue, so the baby will be well fed, nice home and plenty of toys. Sheldon is not as good at emotional stuff but has come a long way. He is very loving and considerate towards Amy although he doesn't always know what to do in certain situations. Amy has really helped guide Sheldon in this area and I am sure she will continue to do so. She will guide Sheldon through what he doesn't do as well. If Amy has been patient enough and loving enough to help Sheldon as she has, I see no reason why she wouldn't show the same love and patience to a child. Say what you will about Amy. But you can't deny her kindness and empathy. Some say if the child is not a genius he won't be interested. I disagree. Sheldon will always think his children are better than others because he made them. He is in love with everything he creates or does. He sees no flaws in his work , or anything he touches. I don't see that changing over a child. For better or worse it is his progeny. I remember how thrilled he was to see his and Amy's expirament in the lab and how he enjoyed talking about it. They have a wonderful group of friends who will no doubt be great honorary aunts and uncles who will be part of their life. Just as they are for Howard's kids. They will have a loving Mary and MeMaw. They have aunts and uncles who will influence them. In the end they will make mistakes but be overall great parents.

    Anyone can give examples of every character being a good and bad friend. It only takes 5 minutes of thinking either way, depending on who you like or dislike. They’re friends whose bad behaviour is amplified coz that’s what a lot of sitcoms do. Don’t get the need to rehash this whataboutism stuff over and over but then........online forums - what else is there to do?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'd also like to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year 🎅 I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for Shamy during the second half of this final season. They are, for me, the best couple on the show, no contest!!!! They're the reason I became such a huge fan of the show and why I'm still watching after 12 years. I really hope we get to see the happy ending this awesome couple deserve 😊

    I have not said anything about this, as my opinon is quite different from the majority I believe. I am with you in that I like the decision. However, I do not find it selfish. The laser will benefit the university in that it may lead to new discoveries and have far reaching uses. That Leonard's work will benefit is also good for CalTech. Who knows what projects he may be able to obtain for them. I see Leonard as just being fed up with all the attention and selfishness being thrown at him. Howard was particularly boorish in that regard. Others were looking to spend the funds on very personal items (a koi pond for their office? Please!) Anyway. I am fine with how Leonard awarded the funding. It will in the end benefit the university well into the future. (my unsolicited, non-expert opinion)

    That "shut up" didn't bother me much because I took it as "I'm wrong, don't rub it in" and I think for Leonard it was mostly just amusing. What I didn't like is that before that Penny had an air of being trerribly bored and not wanting anything to do with Leonard and wanting him to not bother her. If the tone of her snarky comment on his joke was somewhat different and her body language as a whole was different I think the "shut up" would've been better recieved as well. The writers keep telling us that they're happy but they don't seem to be. Not that they look miserable, and they do have cute moments, but to me they mostly feel bored, disillusioned, unfulfilled. I'd say that if the writers want to portray a happy childless (by choice) couple they are doing a very lousy job. Childless (by choice) couples should not be happy with this representation, IMO. Then again, I have no idea what these writers are trying to do and I'm so tired of trying to understand it.

    From TV Line Big Bang Theory's Melissa Rauch Joins Showtime Comedy Black Monday he Big Bang Theory‘s series finale is still months away, but Melissa Rauch has already lined up her next TV gig: Showtime’s Wall Street comedy Black Monday. Rauch, Oscar nominee Bruce Dern and Saturday Night Live vet Horatio Sanz all have signed on to the satire, which stars Don Cheadle (House of Lies), Andrew Rannells (Girls) and Regina Hall (Girls Trip). Initially handed a 10-episode order in June, Black Monday will take viewers back to Oct. 19, 1987, the day of the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. Per the official description, the series will tell the story of how “a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling.” Rauch will play Shira, the loving wife of Paul Scheer’s trader, Keith; Dern will appear as legendary trader Rod; and Sanz will play Wayne, a Wall Street wild man who works for Cheadle’s Mo. Black Monday, which hails from David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (My Best Friend’s Girl), is slated for a January 2019 debut.

    I am generally content with it being the last season. I think the writers don't really have many more good stories to write and the show is declining in quality and getting really stagnant (especially Lenny). Also I am glad they know it now and not in the middle of the season, this way they may put more effort to each episode, thinking they don't have many more, and move things along, instead of keeping things stagnant and rushing in the end. That being said, it does make me sad to read that. It will all end in a few months. The show, the forum, most fanfics I suppose (although there are still fics for shows that ended). I'm gonna miss it.

    I like to remind you of my favourite episode for Lenny from Season 8: The Graduation Transmission. No need for that! 😀 Leonard and Penny in wonderful sync.
