    Leave it to you @Itwasdestined to put something into words so perfectly. Twelve years is a long time to feel for and to live with characters of a sitcom inhabiting your mind and imagination. Yet twelve years can in some ways be not enough. I’m dreading the vacuum that comes after 12.24. We’ll always have the collected episodes, but the new will have ended. I also am not looking forward to what happens here. I’m sure many of us will stay for a while past the fade to black but, invariably we will all begin to drift away. Because of TBBT, I have forged friendships with folks both my age and quite a bit younger than I (especially through Twitter here at the Forum and in fanfiction) that I treasure and hope that will last long after May 23. Thanks so much for your post @Itwasdestined . So well said.

    I like early season Sheldon as well. I enjoyed his interactions with Penny. Those were classic. I enjoyed the one where Penny slipped and fell and he had to drive her to the ER. Such great chemistry. Also, the one where she becomes obsessed with video games...

    Times have changed. Something has brought out all sorts of behaviour that we hardly even knew about pre-internet. It's good deeds now that draw headlines. People around him put up with Sheldon because they are intelligent and educated enough to perceive that Sheldon has problems as well as being one. Even they have their limits though. Others of his peers, such as Mrs Davies and the laureates we met in 12x18, think he should jolly well control his behaviour a bit more and they don't put up with it more than they have to. Perhaps in the academic world Sheldons are more common than in the rest of society so that 'normal' people in that environment learn to accept them.

    I'm an ardent Lenny shipper, but that doesn't mean I can't like other couples as well. I like Shamy too. I admire Mayim's portrayal of Amy.

    Actually, it doesn't work that way. They were there to gather data for the entire period, they just couldn't "go home". They did gather all the data. They had two sets of data. One with the can opener, and another without it. It was Sheldon who sent out a email, boasting of success, without doing due diligence of running it past a peer review, prior to announcing. This is on all of them. How exactly did they ruin his project? They had all the data with them. Ruining the project would have been gathering ONLY the data with the can opener on. That didn't happen

    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

    That was a good one!. Penny knew exactly how to make him annoyed. Penny calling his mom at the end always made me laugh. It worked though. He got them back, folded them and everything. Well played Penny. Well played!

    This isn't pointed at anyone here but I've had to deal with a few people in my life who thought they were smarter and better than anyone else. My wife and I raised are daughters not to be like that Luckily for me in the last 20 years I get to decide who I work for and I definitely have a long talk with a person before I agree to do anything. Life is to short to put up with that kind of thing and yet I find a show I really liked from the beginning and tptb decide an a**hole should be the hero. Maybe I'm just getting old and times have changed but I don't understand why anyone would put up with that kind of behavior Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    I like Lenny fine. Penny is very charming and I love watching her do scenes with the other girls on the show. Leonard is a great friend to others. I like Shamy as well. I like thier chemistry together, I like that two misfits found eachother. I like that Sheldon, who was never really expected to find love did.

    One of the main precepts of the show is the friendship between the characters. You can skew it anyway you want. But it is canon. They are all friends and will be for life.

    From Deadline Hollywood ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Team Hints Series Won’t End With “Atomic Bomb” – The Contenders Emmys The Big Bang Theory is a few of episodes away from its series finale, but don’t expect a big explosion to bring finality to the beloved characters on the CBS comedy. Director Mark Cedrowski teased what fans of the long-running hit CBS sitcom can expect during a panel Sunday at Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys. “I honestly don’t know that much,” Cedrowski told Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, who moderated the panel at the Paramount Theatre that also featured co-stars Kunal Nayaar and Melissa Rauch. “The final episode has not been written completely yet; it’s been outlined. I will say the one thing about how they’ve approached the whole season: When we learned that this was to be the last season … writers have approached it, not so much as the show is wrapping up and we’ll never see them again and the finality of it all. “It’s going to be the last episode and it’s going to end, but people’s lives still go on,” he added. “The characters will be giving the idea that their lives continue on. It’s not going to be an atomic bomb where things blow up and you never see anybody again.” <full article in the link>

    I hate to say it, but none of the guys have changed, other than being older. They still play video games, go to the comic book store , as well as everything else they did 12 years ago, The only major change is their living arrangements. In Howard's case, he changed from having his mother take care of him, to his wife doing it. Leonard's the best of the lot as he truly is friends with the other guys, even though most of the time they don't deserve it. I know there are different opinions out there.

    That is funny-- I think that's what happens to long playing shows--the characters have to grow changing the dynamics of the show and why it was popular and good in the first place. It's either going to get old from the same behaviors over and over again or it's gotta change but not always for the best

    I will continue to defend Sheldon whenever I want to. I see him very differently then you do. Frankly, your last sentance is not likely to make me feel any different. I like Lenny fine...

    Ruining someone else's project is never ok. Even if you think it is going nowhere. Crappy thing to do. If Sheldon did that to A Leonard expirement would you feel the same or another crappy thing you thought Sheldon did?

    But it was a very dishonest approach that wasted money and time spending it in the arctic. If it wasn't going to work they could've just gone home early

    Thanks. Some of us are only in the forum for the spoilers and others don't want to see any. Spoilers go only in the (Spoilers) Season 12 Discussion Thread. We're already speculating there what might happen in The Plagiarism Schism, or at least I am. We saw the title on a cast member's instagram photo of the script. Please don't feel put under any pressure ! We're all grateful for any information we can get, such as whether anybody is pregnant or got a better job. However, the main thing, if audience members have no time or no inclination, is that they had a wonderful time. It's a big thing in anybody's life. We don't want to spoil (no pun intended ) the experience for you.

    Shell's right. In this case the actors aged by more than a decade and so the characters had to age - or in some ways grow up - with them. Leonard changed the least, it seemed to me. They were all child-like in many ways to begin with and over the years, since it wasn't an animated show, they needed to be moved on. I've liked them better as time has gone on. Every now and again, among the muddles and anachronisms and inconsistencies, a writer troubles to give us some worthwhile insight into character and that's good because we get something to talk about. We were slowly given the information that Sheldon's combination of nature and nurture, for instance, wasn't always favourable for him. Even without YS it was clear he'd not had much opportunity to find a peer group in his formative years. Most of any intellectual equals he had were not in his own age group. That puts a boy on the defensive. The fighting Texan instinct is still in him, nevertheless, at least from what he says. Sheldon's only weapon then was disdain and it persisted into adulthood. He found a handy coping tool in squashing emotions. Mix all that with a personality that's probably somewhere on the autistic spectrum and you find it's going to take him a long time to identify old habits for what they are - such as when a shock to his system got him to listen to Leonard about reality v fiction in the Spockumentary episode - and learn to discard them. But he can do it, at least as far as he wants to. He couldn't otherwise have got a wife so he made the effort. The reason for Leonard's insecurities and desire for approval is obvious when we see the mother they wrote for him, but he doesn't let it become an excuse for being a pain in the neck.

    It is more than tolerate him. Multiple times over the seasons they helped Sheldon even in those times they could just sit down and laugh of his misery. To me it is about friendship, no matter what are their flaws to each other. After all it could be seen as the meaning of this show. Edited for saying to @vonmar that I only read her post after I posted mine. I know the words are similar...

    In my opinion Amy and Leonard were both mentally abused by their mothers so would this be why they both put up with their partners big faults Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

    Isn’t up to Sheldon since it was his project to verify all the data? Also in theory if a Nobel Prize nomination was forthcoming wouldn’t it only been him to receive it?

    I've seen Leonard destroy one of Sheldon's expirements and almost ruin his reputation when they went to the artic. So I am not sure about Leonard's work ethic He would intentionally ruin a project that Sheldon was working on without a care or a feeling of guilt.

    IMO the way they wrote those other physicists, as kind of dull opportunist villains, fits with the overall childishness of the story. Oohh look at those villains! They so not deserve this! They are the bad guys! Hate them audience, and root for Shamy! Again, it all feels like a Nickelodeon/Disney show.

    Wish I could given this post 100 likes, Batman75!!! You articulated what I was feeling as I watched the episode. The thought I was left with was they didn't have much of a story, but THEY are THEIR story for me.I watched it again tonight for their little moments, each one a gem.

    You mean like how Sheldon pathologicaly insists on devauling Leonards Career and Intelligence? Yeah. Yeah I don't see how Shamy are any less frauds them selfs. They kinda stumbled into discovering the Theory, that has been disprooven. Anyway i just watched the episode. Decent. I liked the Opening scene, with Ellen. That was cool. Felt more realistic I have seen as far as characters sitting around watching TV. Cool they got Ellen to shoot that segment. I Thought that was the funniest scene of the episode. I personally thought Johnny and Kaley stole the episode. IT was really one of those episodes that showed how compatible Leonard and Penny are. Their ability with people has always been their biggest strength. Hence why Leonard is arguably more likeable with his Friends and Collegues, then Sheldon is. I thought Penny was funny. Reading The Gravitational Pull Theory off her phone. "Oh you worked on Inception!". I diddn't mind the actors who are playing scientists. They are not over or underplaying their part. Cool they had a female nobel prize winner for Chemistry. I find the plot overall boring though. I prefered The Guidance System Plot to this. Although the Howard Astronaut Book Plot was cool.

    I stopped watching half way thru the episode. That has never happened before! Super boring is too nice of a description!
