    Your post wasn't clear on that. And even then, it wouldn't have changed anything. Holland himself said they approached S12 as if it were the last. They had only written the first handful of episodes when the announcement was made. Not to mention that by their own admission they don't plan out anything long it advance anyway. So no matter how you cut it by now they had enough time to come up with better storylines BUT DIDN'T. The only thing that remotely feels like something is building up towards the finale is the Shamy story line with their fairytale Nobel and even that storyline started in S11. Everybody else is just treading water. Having an additional summer for that wouldn't have changed anything. Heck, they had years to find something interesting for Lenny and didn't come up with anything worthwhile so what makes you think one summer could magically change that???

    I still love Lenny and I still love the show. ❤️

    Leonard decides not to donate in 12×15. That seems to be the end of the donation plot. If we're very "lucky" Penny may end up saying she may change her decision about kids some day. I don't allow myself to even bring up something more than that. If they surprise me, great, but they sure might upset me yet again, even with incredibly low expectations.

    Hmm IDK, it might end up being the worse season for me. Not only does it really upset me in terms of what they did with my favorite characters, but it is also generally boring IMO and barely has any saving grace. The only episodes I can say I really enjoyed are the Halloween one and the paintball one. As much as season 10 upset me there was more that I enjoyed there and it was actually only the second half that upset me. Season 8 upset me in the end, before that it was mostly kinda boring but not as much as season 12 IMO. So 12 is a strong contender for worse TBBT season for me. This is of course all JMO, I'm sure there are others who will disagree.

    I totally agree. I am disappointed that up until now they haven't used the last season to show that kind of growth for Lenny, and especially Penny. Penny was always masking her feelings, taking distance when things get scary for her, putting on this cool girl front, acting angry when she's vulnerable. Instead of making strides like Sheldon does they actually have her regressing. They still have the chance to write a long awaited deep conversation between Leonard and Penny, one similar to the one in "The Tangible Affection Proof" or the one after the first wedding fiasco, but goes further. I think it would be so great if they do that, but I sure don't expect that.

    "I feel like we are either in for a long slog before finally getting to the finale, or this was maybe one of the last “filler” episodes of the series before they really get into the final run of episodes where they finish strong. Clearly, the show is not going to have one of those amazing final seasons where they rekindle the old magic and keep it going for the whole season, but if they manage to finish the final 10 strong that would still be something great, though I am not holding my breath. I just don’t know if the writers have it in them anymore. Even in the final season they can’t seem to find anything to do with Leonard and Penny, sophomoric story-lines like “Leonard is jealous about the attention the other characters are getting” just doesn’t cut it in the final season. Give his character some depth and growth, after 12 seasons, he deserves that, same with Penny. Ah well. See you back here next week for what will hopefully be a better episode." From TV Review: ‘The Big Bang Theory: The Meteorite Manifestation’ (Season 12 Episode 14) sciencefiction.com From my point of view I would like to add nothing, really nothing any more to this. (Penny, don’t smirk at me.)

    I wholeheartedly agree with what you say. IMO the show has turned to utter shit, and Jim has become my new hero for pulling the plug. I would have hoped that they would have ended the show on S8, because the last time I remember it being good was halfway through S7. Had that been the case they could have ramped up for the finale and wrapped up everything beautifully in 1 1/2 seasons but they chose to go from bad to worse. Ahhhh the allure of money...

    I can well imagine a two-part split of this episode. Girls sprouts vs nerd guys, without depth and growth or intimidated hiccups. Probably I’m not just a geek but also a dreamer. 😉

    And episode 16, for all its guest stars, seems like another "filler" in terms of plot. It seems like the writees write mosly what they enjoy, their idols as guest starts, Sheldon achieving all his dreams, and Leonard getting his heart broken and getting stepped on once and again (while Penny is either sidelined or regresses to teen behavior). Maybe they'd forgotten they're not fanfic writers.

    I really envy Penny (Kaley) for her flat belly and those abs. Maybe I should read the book "Two Weeks To Rock Hard Abs" or try some yoga.

    He already signed a contract that he'd do S12. What you're suggesting is a serious breach of said contract. And no, you don't wanna end a show like this with bad blood just because you bailed in the middle of a 2-year production deal. Secondly, Jim has said for a long time that he won't do this show forever and joking that nobody wants to see old Sheldon anyway so it was inevitable that at one point he wouldn't sign on for another season. I also think a much bigger factor than Hawkings's passing was that he's steadily build up his own production company and was seeking out his own projects. The summer play he did was probably the final nail in the coffin.

    Well, honestly, we don't know any deeper details about this episode (apart from the promo pictures, LOL). But I share your fear that we won't see a convincing result of Lenny's development until the end of the series. I just hope I'm not gonna screaming like this.

    We very rarely argue but snark like crazy. Whatever works, simply works. Cheers to all of us that have been in it for the long haul!

    She made him tea, offered to go get him medicine and offered to sleep on the couch. What else should she have done for her fully grown, extremely intelligent husband with the sniffles?

    And her arm was across Jim's lap. And Raj's arm was across JIm's shoulder. I'm willing to bet none of it meant a thing. They're just all jammed together on a couch.

    What surprises me the most is that tptb haven't had sheldon making snide remarks to Leonard about the smart and beautiful babies Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk Your entitled to your opinion but I've been married a few times and we always took care of each other when one of us sick Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    They are amazing together on the show and the fact that they are such good friends makes it a hundred times better because you know they truly care for each other.

    I'd laugh myself silly, and go into work early just to talk about it with some of the fans there.

    Ditto! And I, for one, am glad to see your positive posts here, and in the Lenny thread, daily.

    If you are referring to the bus to Las Vegas episode after Sheldon was sick, I don't think he was serious. He thought it was a game as he usually does in his childish way for an end game to get on the bus. Personally, I think it would have been a better episode if they left him there instead of caving in to his whim

    I TOTALLY agree with you especially about Emily. It was definitely a whole year of filler, and the first wedding and boat kiss were a completely unsatisfying waste of time.

    Do you mean the whole series should have ended with the Shamy wedding? That would have been a grotesque insult not only to the long-term fans but to the actors who created the show from the first, apart from JP - I mean KC and JG in particular. And the Shamy wedding wasn't necessarily a high for JP - maybe he got fed up with the lines he was being given for lovey-dovey Shamy.

    I agree with that assessment. As I've said many times, where's the going out with a bang we were promised?

    Wait so if this sperm donor plot doesn't get resolved in the upcoming episode , they are going to brush it aside AGAIN for something that sounds like a guest starred filler episode. This is getting out of hand now, as much as I loathe the sperm donor plot it needs to dealt with sooner rather than later, but I have a nasty feeling it'll be right near then end of the season before we see the final outcome of it. Heck they might be dumb enough to use this unwanted story arc as Lenny's last plot of the season and have it only be resolved in the penultimate episode or the finale .

    All of the couples snark at each other sometimes. The scene needed a laugh. I'm married 35 years this year, given and received too many snarks to count...lol

    That is harsh, what happened to the “in sickness and health” that it is still in most wedding vows? Husbands and wives take care of each other a lot, especially when they get older, I don’t think anyone is thinking they are acting like a mother.

    They play off each other SO well. I think it helps that they are actually friends in real life.

    I got a few boring hours to kill before my flight, then I remembered this post: I copied my list here to check: 1. One episode and one mention, so...still hoping for another one, haha. 2. Oh...long shot...What was I thinking back then?...LOL. 3. ummmm, no, not with the SA project in sight, I think. 4. Nah. 5. Aha, this is an easy one. LMAO. 6. One down, one to go. I'm confident that TPTB will have Mary back before the end. Yep. 7. Oh, I'm counting on it. 8. This is a fun one, maybe, I think. The additional one I wrote: 9. ummmm, maybe? 10. Still maybe. 11. Aha. LOL. 12. Maybe. 13. The ship has sailed, but they can still get Giuseppe home, haha. OK, back to the waiting. This is fun.

    I wonder if he would consider a spin-off with Johnny and Kaley in conjunction with WB/CBS and possibly their production companies
