    Funny episode tonight. A-plot was the Shamy Nobel laureate situation. No resolution tonight on that front. They're still competing with Dr. Pemberton (Sean Astin) and Dr. Campbell (Kal Penn) for the nomination. They (Pemberton & Campbell) have been doing a publicity tour for support. They even went on Ellen to sing a viral song about physics that they'd posted on YouTube lol. Siebert planned a reception for Sheldon & Amy to drum up some support from other Nobel laureates, but none of them wanted to come because Sheldon has insulted all of them at one point or another. Leonard and Penny eventually convinced them all to come to the reception. B-plot was Howard and Bernie. Basically she wanted to make a nighttime story book for the kids about how Howard overcame his fears in space, called The Frightened Little Astronaut. And she wanted Stuart to illustrate it. Howard wasn't feeling it, but eventually he agreed to it, though he kept trying to change details to make himself look better. Lots of VIPs there tonight. Mayim's Mom as well as Jim's Mom were in the front row. The hype guy jokingly teased Jim's Mom about something (he didn't recognize her at first), then spent the rest of the night apologizing to her lol. Iain Armitage (Young Sheldon) was there too. He was hanging with Jim in Sheldon's spot after the show. You can tell the cast is savoring these last few eps. Lots of joking around and laughing, lots of hugs after the curtain call. When they came to speak to the audience, it seemed like Kaley was on the verge of tears. I'll do a more detailed taping report tomorrow.

    Much deserved? The for a show that has spent it's entire run being proud of accurate science, the so-called super-asymmetry is not science. The only screw up that could affect their eligibility for the Nobel, would be if their results are invalid (something like the Chinese team that verified his previous super heavy isotope idea, by faking results). The down side for that, would be it would leave super-asymmetry without any experimental proof, and thus not eligible for a Nobel.

    Yeah, it would. I hadn’t thought about it like that, but you’re right. Whether or not they do use it that way, we’ll have to wait and see. Cool. I’m glad we can agree on some things. Oh, I know. But I’m usually adamant about supplying evidence or reasoning for a claim, and since I made a claim, that there is no actual science that supports super-asymmetry, I felt I better provide the support I demand of others. I have gotten a PM about it, so there was “some” interest. Although, I’ll concede that anyone here isn’t an “average” viewer.

    They should be proud of their achievement. They have excelled in their field. Well done them (even though I didn’t get my druthers.) Pleased for you that you got to see it and well done you for reporting.

    @Trinabeana78 Thank you! I really appreciate it. 🙂

    No, can't blame Shamy for this, claiming science that is incorrect isn't the character's fault.

    Thank you so much the spoilers! @Trinabeana78 you are amazing!! They should get a Nobel for friendship. That they help others is one of my favorite traits about them.

    Thanks a ton, @Trinabeana78!! ❤️ Eww, nah. That stuff is awful. I didn't mean you specifically. Keeping me busy during the day and up at night. lol He's at an age when the sleeping schedule changes again so that's causing a bit of trouble for him to adjust. But otherwise he's doing fine. He's a cutie pie!

    Thank you so much Trinabeana, it is very much appreciated. I have to use redbull. Oh, I agree with you. I lump him with the writers as he writes the scientific stuff. So there.😜 hows the little one doing?

    Oh, I do. The entire raison d'être for having super-asymmetry is that there were no papers against it. Of course there were none for it either, and there is a very good reason for that, having to do with conservation laws. Kaons may be the way forward (as there may, note I said may), be a reason for their decay rates to be different, and their decay paths to be different. Although according to the CKM Matrix, those asymmetries are predicted so no asymmetry is needed. It's also worth noting that asymmetry in Kaon decay has already been awarded Nobel prizes in 1964 and 1980. If you wish to know more, check out the following links for eigenstates, eigenvalues, or eigenvectors or linear algebra and tensors.

    I hope not...that is a Lenny decision to make. Not Beverly or Wyatt.

    I hear what your saying, but to me that wouldn't be in character for Beverly at all. We know Sheldon and Leonard have each other's ideal mother. I like that part of the storyline. To me it is funny that Sheldon should have had Beverly as a mom and Leonard should have had Mary. I don't mind a very basic conversation between Leonard and his mom about kids but without any pressure as Leonard asked of Wyatt. 🥂

    I'd like her to have a discussion with Penny and maybe get an idea why Penny changed her mind about wanting to have children but I don't think that will happen since Penny will be with Bernie at the conference. Or even better and even more unlikely, have a compassionate conversation with her son on the subject. Maybe say something helpful and not demeaning to her son for once.

    Perhaps it's Shamy she'll be talking to, or perhaps Amy who's worried about getting Sheldon interested in real babies and not just homo novi.

    I'm hoping Beverly leaves it to Leonard and Penny to decide and stays out of it. But, I sincerely doubt her being able to do that!

    Maybe not. Hopefully it's all just a Cooper dream! You just gotta love Fruit Loops!

    Thanks for the report. So close to the end you wouldn’t think they would have another filler episode.
  23. 3 points
    That would be a perfect was to get out of it. I agree with this. The average viewer is not going to do this, or even care.

    thanks, great report! looking forward for more!! how many regular ticket holders showed up? also any idea how many standbys got in?

    The Conference Valuation Airs Thursday, March 7 at 8/7c on CBS When Penny and Bernadette go to San Diego for a pharmaceutical sales convention, Wolowitz is in charge of the kids. Also, Sheldon finds a book on experimenting on kids, and the guys plus Amy make a day of it. Christine Baranski returns as Dr. Beverly Hofstadter.

    Oh god I hope not! The second one wasn't needed. They could have written around her pregnancy.

    To be honest, Johnny rarely smiles in group pictures and Jim looks like he needs to use the men's room...lol

    I am tremendously disappointed that Raj/Anu have not gotten a plot in forever, if there was a Season 13/14 maybe they'd actually give Raj's climax some more weight How many random Howardette plots is this now that doesn't change anything about their life? Just such obvious favoritism

    Of course we can. I like you and like a lot of your posts. Yes, thank you. It is much appreciated. You did very, very well. If it's a funny episode, that's a good thing.

    Howardette are possibly like Lenny once they got married - their story is over. Longest married, got two kids. As a couple what else can the writers do with them as a couple to advance their story? Any Howardette story is going to be filler now, I would think. Bernie is getting career stories with Penny and Howard is probably just do boy stuff with the boys. I think they’re done. But they still have to appear in the show so fill away.

    Thanks @Trinabeana78 for the info, sounds like a great episode.

    Well, if it's a Nobel episode, that would NOT be a filler. It would be advancing the Shamy arc.

    IIRC they asked Dr. Saltzberg (spelling?) to come up with something do you gotta blame him.

    What's the betting Sheldon will be having a dream with all those Nobel-winning scientists in it ? For what other reason do they gather in one place ?

    Nope! To me, it seems as though they've given up on Raj's attempts of being in a relationship!

    I haven't even finished my morning coffee so no, I'm not interested. I was just pointing out where the idea came from in the first place cause ever since this plot came up I've seen people accuse the writers to make it all up without their physics consultant even though he's the one who came up with that in the first place. So there.

    Penny becoming a successful actress would be a bullsquirt plot on the same level as having Sheldon and Amy win a Nobel for bullsquirt science.

    She's a well played character who has been on regularly, but not all the time. Them bringing her back before the end does not surprise me. I don't care how she treated Leonard. She's a good character and leads to some funny scenes.

    I’m a Lenny fan but I have to disagree with you. He was a villain in this episode but he didn’t break up Lenny. Leonard and Penny broke up Lenny. Penny for not saying I love you and Leonard for expecting her to. JMO but if they had stayed together I don’t think the show would of lasted so long. I know some say, including myself, that the show could of ended a couple of years ago but JMO it could of been sooner than that.

    Chapter 18, Riley POV. As opposed to the heavy chapter 17, this one's a light one. As I said before, most chapters are stand-alon-ish. This is one of those that are easier than others to read as a stand-alone, without having read previous ones.
