    Hey, guys! I wanted to share some (of the roughly 50!) photos from my trip to the exhibit on August 8. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

    As Nograv put it, it depends on when and what you got involved with. I started right at the beginning, identified with Leonard and Penny (because of me and my wife) and at that time, the focal point was Sheldon and Penny, pulling Leonard in different directions (and as an example, The Nerdvana Annihilation was an example showing Penny winning). That stayed right on through season three. In season's four through six, it was no longer the focal point, but the focal points were much more evenly spread out. Starting in season seven, and lasting until the end, it was Sheldon and Shamy that were the focal points. So, if you came in after season five or six, yeah, them not being the focal point was pretty obvious. As far as the writers, I hate to say lazy, but, when they found it more interesting and easier to write one thing, mainly or peripherally, and pretty much limit writing everything else to a minimum, because its not as interesting and harder to write, it pretty much boils down to not wanting to work at it, so yeah, lazy might fit here.

    A little sad over here. Things are slowing down to a drip, drip, drip of posts. On top of that, at the beginning of May I stopped receiving email notices of most posts on the Forum, leading me to visit once or twice a day instead of the "oh yay! a post by @bfm" or "maybe its a gif from @veejay". "Ahhh! @luminous is giving us something from Instagram!" when the notifications hit my inbox with extreme regularity. I miss you all. I hope I find things are well with you. I still see an episode of TBBT most days. They and you are always on my mind!

    I feel Penny and Leonard were both pretty sucky to each other in order to coddle Sheldon. The show spent a long time persuading me that they really needed and wanted each other - hence the angst and drama of the season 4, the Priya digression, the Penny/Raj debacle, and then Penny and Leonard 2.0 - followed by what... seven season of enabling Sheldon while disparaging one another. They never or rarely had any fun that we saw, they just existed as props for gags about Sheldon. Penny fawned over Sheldon and rarely stood with Leonard against him. I kept hoping for better and hung around because of that hope. And what did I get for staying... the frakkin’ “boat kiss” cliffhanger. Then they served up the almost unnatural cohabitation with Sheldon, which was just ludicrous pandering, to both the character Sheldon and to the Sheldon fanciers. It didn’t seem to hurt the ratings though. People swallowed it all. Makes me realise how tiny and lacking influence the L/P cohort must have been. Sheldon was a juggernaut, and not in the Marvel comic sense.

    Now, when all has been said and all has been done, I’m looking at Penny and parenthood as a journey of development. Like other things, becoming a mother was something far in the future for her. After some scares in her youth, she settled into a “yeah, someday” mentality, which suited her. Until. Until she started thinking. About marrying Leonard. About changing careers. When she thought about how they may no longer be “young and fun” I think her considerations went into overdrive. A way to stay young may be not becoming a parent. A change in her view has occurred again now that she is expecting. We did not get to see the process, but I for one imagine a lovely and loving long conversation between Penny and Leonard, where all is laid out. All is said between them and what their future holds. They always do seem to arrive there at the point of non return. Of revealing things to themselves, together, that had been hidden. That had been unsaid. The true beauty of their relationship and the totality of their love of each other was on display late in season 12. Penny’s complete support of Leonard v Beverly in episode 22 (this followed her worry, tempered support and joy and happiness for him in his professional decision and the results in episode 20) and finally their extremely evident love and devotion in episodes 23 & 24. So, to Penny, Leonard is a “veritable Mack daddy” and together, they will have “smart and beautiful babies”....

    Ratings are tanking across the board so far this year, a quick calculation shows the average premiere is down 30-40 percent. On Monday, none of CBS' shows cracked a 1.0. The Neighborhood was high at 0.9. On NBC, The Voice was at 1.7, 911 was at 1.5. On ABC, The Good Doctor and Fox's Prodigal Son were at 1.0. On Tuesday, on NBC, This is Us had a 3.0 last year and a 1.8 this year, down 40%. The Voice was at 1.5 (down 40%). On ABC, The Conners, with the highest comedy rating of 1.3, was off by 1.1 points (45%) from last year (2.4). The rest of ABC's lineup was either 0.8 or 0.9. On Fox, the new Show the resident was at 0.9 and Empire, was down 0.9 points at 1.0, from a 1.9, down 49%. Neither of Fox's shows hit four million. CBS had a fairly good night, with NCIS flat at 1.3, but it's been the only show over 10 million viewers, at 12.24. On Wednesday, ABC struggled with The Goldbergs and Modern Family at 1.0 (but both were under 5 million viewers, Modern Family barely making it at 4.04 million. Their other two new comedies Schooled and Single Parents came in at 0.8 and 0.7, but Schooled was under four million (3.48) and Single Parents was under three million (2.87). Their new show at 10 PM, Stumptown only had a 0.7, but at 4.53 million was the highest viewed show on the network, beating The Goldberg's by 80 thousand viewers. On CBS, both Survivor and Big Brother ran 90 minutes, and were both around 1.2-1.3 demo. Survivor had around 6 million viewers and Big Brother had around 4.5 million. NBC ran Chicago First Responders (Med, Fire, PD) and all were somewhere around 1.2 with Med and Fire around 7.5 million with PD at 6.5 million. The big winner on Wednesday was Fox, with The Masked Singer pulling in around a 2.5 demo, with around 8 million viewers. Thursday for CBS wasn't bad, with YS at 1.0 and Mom at 0.8, and their new shows, The Unicorn (0.8) and Carol's Second Act at 0.7). YS was over 8 million viewers and the other three at 6 million. At 10 PM the new show Evil brought in a0.7 with 4.5 million. ABC had a good night with Grey's Anatomy at 1.6 and the new Show A Million Little Pieces at 1.0, with Grey's around 6.5 million and Pieces at 5 million. How to Get Away with Murder was at 0.6 but only 2.5 million viewers. Fox had Football, and on NBC Thursday was a complete disaster. Leading off the night was Superstore, with a 0.8 and only 2.86 million viewers. This was followed by the new show Perfect Harmony (0.5, 2.63 million), The Good Place, (0.7, 2.42 million) and the new show Sunnyside at 0.4, and only 1.77 million people. It picked up at 10 PM with the 21 season premiere of Law and Order SVU (something that no prime time drama has ever done) with a 0.7 and 3.84 million viewers. Friday, on CBS, the trio of Hawaii Five-0, Magnum PI, and Blue Bloods, were around 0.6-0.7 with 6 million for the first two, and 7.5 million for Blue Bloods On ABC American Housewife at 0.7 and 3.39 million viewers and Fresh Off the Boat (0.5, 2.44 million) were followed by two episodes of 20/20 (average 0.55 and 3.25 million) NBC ran a repeat of Bluff City Law (0.4, 2.70 million) then two episodes of Dateline (average 0.6 and 3.60 million viewers). Fox heavily promoted WWE smackdown and got a 0.4 demo, with only 1.39 million viewers. At 9 PM FOX ran a repeat of Prodigal Son to a 0.3 with 1.27 million viewers. It has not been pretty. Only one series broke a 2.0 (The Masked Singer), only one series broke 10 Million viewers (NCIS), and only one new series was above a 1.0 (Prodigal Son). I would not want to be a broadcast network executive this year, or in the years ahead.

    All we did was have lunch, a beer, and talk for about two hours. Thoroughly enjoyable. You mean like "What's a Hickey?" Or his failure to understand "Blow by blow?" Anyone who compares oral sex to a chicken pecking for corn, and then mimes the action would know what a hickey was, and would understand "Give it to me", or "Blow by blow." Things he claimed not to know about. The comment simply pointed out that the character of Sheldon wasn't so rare and unique on television. I used the crazy in a generic sense, so you not understanding my point on the is my fault. By crazy, I meant these characters were the odd one (which I also used). I simply saw Sheldon as the odd one, and there isn't anything unique about that. While his love, and knowledge, of trains could be indicative of being on the spectrum, the football information I don't think is, it's more due to his eidetic memory. I'm sorry to hear this Die, my condolences. But, here we run into the conflict the writers have with their not declaring him on the spectrum. Which is made worse by the claim of an eidetic memory. He's been told quite a few times that his behavior is not acceptable. If he's not on the spectrum, then his continued ill-mannered behavior, after being told the behavior is wrong, means he's doing it on purpose or just to be mean (see "Itchy Brain"). But, even if he is on the spectrum, he still has the eidetic memory, so he knows the behavior is wrong, yet he does it anyway. It's a sticky wicket in that corner the writers painted themselves into.

    I just watched the last episonde of The Big Bang Theory and it's amazing! I cried so hard it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen! The Big Bang may be the the number 1 comedy but it's far more than that! It's the most pure, beautiful and heartwarming love story anyone has ever known, it's about the most simple and true way anyone can love and it's about how the smallest things can have such a huge impact on peoples lives and make them turn out amazing it's not just a tv show it's a life lesson and the best story I have ever known. Thank you so much, because that, is the explanation for how the universe works. It did start with The Big Bang...

    A question that has been debated at length. Originally, Sheldon was roommate to Leonard and most of what Leonard did for him was stipulated in the Roommate Agreement. Howard and Raj got sucked in because they were friends with Leonard. As to why they would continue to interact/socialize with him there are any number of reasons. They all shared multiple common interests. He possessed abilities that they found useful at times, e.g., he served as the group's institutional memory. At various times they delighted in exploiting his character traits and tormented him. They delighted in seeing others suffering his idiosyncrasies. The Sheldon spotlight could be entertaining to those not caught in its focus. These characters were complicated people. No doubt about that. Why would they remain friends with, and tolerate, Sheldon? Tough question, but it can be asked about most of them. Howard (1.0) was creepy and frequently disturbing. Raj was, at times, much worse in many ways than Sheldon. Amy could be as creepy as Howard and as needy as Leonard. Bernadette could be frighteningly mean. Penny was often morally ambiguous, a bully, and a manipulative moocher. Leonard certainly had issues but was mostly the stable nucleus of an unstable group. None of them was perfect, but together they created some magical moments. For us as viewers and in their make believe world.

    Just watched the last 5 mins of Tbbt again. I’m crying! Lol. But gotta say hell of a finalie. They had a last good one. For a show that has been ridiculed mercilessly for years. The irony of course a show like GOT that was critically praised for years. Well be remembered for that bad last finalie. I guess last impressions mean everything. And Tbbt left a last good impression. This speech from Sheldon. Was Jim Parsons at his best. The most beautiful thing. Was by the end Spock became human. The way he finally acknowledged that not for his friends he would of not be where he is. To see Leonard finnalky get recognised was great. And the last final scene. With the slowed down Acoustic Version of Barenaked Ladies. Was beautiful. Left the show on an somber, but uplifting note.

    Oh, I have no doubt that there are issues. But Die was of the opinion that the issues didn't go away. But, all we have to go on, is her behavior in the final episode, and I don't see any regret or unhappiness by Penny, so obviously, those issues went away, for Penny. Was she unhappy when she first found out, the came to be happy with it? Did she change her mind, again, and decide she wanted kids? Did she change her mind after that last episode? We don't know any of what happened, only that she doesn't exhibit any regret or problems with her being pregnant, in fact, she seems happy with it. If someone doesn't believe the issues went away, there has to be a reason for that, and since we only had her actions in the final, and Penny doesn't seem to have any of those issues. That's why I asked. Now, there could be unhappiness with not exploring either the changes or what happened after they found out. But, none of that can be known. All we have is her actions in the final. Yeah, imagine how constipated some of them have to be, to not take a crap for 12 years.

    Leonard never hooked up with Mandy. AFAIK hooking up means, having a one-night stand, i.e. having sex. What Leonard did, was drunkenly kissing Mandy. Bad enough, but still it wasn't a hook up. True, but Leonard couldn't tell Penny about the kiss, because the writers only invented this incident at the end of season 8 and then retroactively placed it between season 6 and 7. Really badly thought-out retconning, just for the sake of creating drama in a season finale.

    I don't think the pilot is really a good indication of where the characters were starting in episode 2, not to mention and even worse indication to where the characters were after returning from the writers strike. Penny was more of a ditz and no where near the alcoholic, slut they made her out to be in later years. Whereas I loved them, because their path mimics my wife and I's path. Along with my wife and I being very close to being clones of Leonard and Penny. With Itchy brain Leonard was being really stubborn. He could have called that off at any point. He just refused to. He played right into Sheldon's hands. Actually, that reply should have been to me, those are my words, not chucky's. Stubborn? So it was bad that he was trying to live up to the promise he made to Sheldon to wear the sweater until the situation could be resolved? Sheldon was just malicious, willfully giving Leonard more ideas to resolve it, knowing it had already been resolved. This actually had nothing to do with being on the spectrum or his eidetic memory. Sheldon was simply being a selfish asshole about the whole thing, and by using the phrase playing into Sheldon's hands, you know he was being intentionally mean. Either he is on the spectrum or he isn't. The writers and creators specifically state he isn't, along with specifically stating he has an eidetic memory.

    See, Leonard and Penny I relate to, simply because of the similarity of the progression of their relationship, to my wife and I's own. As for Sheldon, I saw him as the crazy or odd one, which has a history on Television. Mork on Mork and Mindy, Latka (who also had his own oddball relationship) and Reverend Jim from Taxi are better examples, as is Kramer on Seinfeld, along with a few others not quite as extreme, so I never did see what was so different about him on television. I really didn't have a problem with Sheldon, until after The 43 Peculiarity, when he used a chicken pecking for corn as a metaphor for, and mimed the head motion of, a blowjob. His life as an unknowing and unaware innocent, which they continued to push, became unbelievable

    I'm not sure Lennys were tiny and lacking influence. I think many of us kept watching because we still wanted to see them, and we also kept clinging to hopes that things will get better. Also, I know some Lennys didn't think it was that bad (or thought it wasn't bad at all) and truly enjoyed the later seasons.

    I think I'm doing ok with TBBT ending, and then I read an article like this, and I'm all teary again. I'm not that ok. A piece of Leonard and Penny will always stay with me: the passion, the friendship, the laughter, the tears, the endurance, the commitment and the general all-around cuteness of the two of them together. And I'll always try to remember the lesson we learned from Leonard. Don't give up on love.❤️❤️

    You're so right! Considering that, I like to dedicate my weirdest bobble head to you. 😉 We could also finally pursue some completely crazy ideas. There should be enough time for some creativity now. (One of my absolute favorite sayings of Penny!) 😀 (on a side note: hottest day since "anno somewhere along the way" here in Germania (41°C!). Maybe that's why my mind is running away from me. Or do I really have sunstroke? Who knows.)

    Tripper and I have been discussing that. We don't feel the pressure to get the "After the Show" sections up (since there won't be a new season), and Tripper's been working on some other things. We're also discussing changing the Young Sheldon part to be more similar to the current TBBT structure. (separate years, etc).
