  1. I remember a time when you'd write long hateful rants so that's good to see.

    But yeah, overall I'm also rather happy. It's more that I'm annoyed with the season itself rather than the finale. For everything else there's always fix-it-fanfic. lol

    Wasn’t aimed at you in particular April, just the timing of my post. This year I’ve definitely had a few rants, not sure I’d classify them as hateful, definitely critical of the writers, but I also wrote some long rants about getting over it too. And over a much longer period of the 7 years I’ve been here I’ve been one of the more positive long ranters

    But yeah, with the finale, I’m just in the mood to rejoice. I get others aren’t as happy. Alls fair in the world of internet opinion.

  2. Why The Big Bang Theory Finale Could Be A Disappointment
    screenrant.com
    "The Big Bang Theory finale is days away, but is it possible the ending will satisfy the show's massive fanbase? Going into the final two episodes, the show has little set up for any of the primary characters outside of Sheldon and Amy..."


    Yeah I reckon it’s called screenrant for a reason. They seem to go the less positive slant lately, which is understandable since that’s the vibe from many hardcore fans here. ( caveat- I haven’t read article - not interested in negative stuff. I want to finish the journey feeling happy and positive. That’s generally been my stance the last 6 years on this forum)

    I don’t think there’s nothing set up for the other characters. It’s more that they’ve over set up the Nobel story. Really didn’t need an entire season on it with so many episodes on just the battle between them and the other two experimental physicists. That was major overkill along with other aspects.

    Lenny have not had the same saturation coverage as Shamy but we still have career possibilities for both of them explored beforehand that can be resolved plus of course that OTHER issue. Even the underlying multi season arc of will they go outside their comfort zone is a chance to be explored without having to pull it out of nowhere. I personally also am interested in whether they can finally surgically remove themselves from their conjoined twins across the hall and gain some independence. It’s not Nobel prize stuff but it’s the story of Lenny that has simmered from the beginning. Will it happen?

    Howardette are less obvious. Bernie has her new drug thing with Penny. Does that go anywhere? Howard doesn’t seem to have much going on ATM unless the military comes back out of nowhere or NASA.
    As a couple, how does finally losing Stuart change their life? I don’t expect the Howard Dad thing to pop up out of nowhere.

    Raj has post Anu to address? Is she still around in the finale? Does he find happiness in himself? Does that change him and make him loveable? Career wise they’ve pushed the alien thing a bit? Does that lead to anything? Is the Planetarium gig his real dream or is he looking for more?

    I’m gonna just wait and see what happens. We’re in the End game now.

  3. Yes, the Central Perk set is at Stage 48, which is the final destination of the WB lot tour. I've been there 3 times during my trips to Burbank for tapings of TBBT. I can't wait to see what they set-up for The Big Bang Theory!!!


    The Friends Set is used for visitor interaction. They choose people to play the role of the main characters and insert you into a scene on the couches in the Cafe. I played Joey when I went. Hope they do the same with BBT. Fans would love it.

    Other than obvious Nobel link, maybe Beverly diagnoses Lenny with Stockholm syndrome as they suffer symptoms of post traumatic stress from being held captive on the island by Shamy and they finally escape their kindly captors!

  4. Maybe my memory's going, but isn't the shot from season 4 part of the saddest scene in the whole series - "Goodbye, Leonard"?


    No for me, it was a moment of realisation that Leonard couldn’t let go and Penny recognised what she was missing. Took them too long to act on it. Loved that bit. Emotional yes but not sad.

  5. I wonder what will become of the props from the show. Perhaps Jim Parsons will inherit the couch from apartment 4A.


    Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think like the Central Perk Cafe set from Friends, 4A will be one part of the interactive WB MUSEUM at the end of the tour. I got to play Joey in a scene from Friends while there in 2017. I can imagine turning up in a few years and sitting in Sheldons spot re-enacting Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock on the couch or standing behind the island with a big coffee mug in my hand.

  6. Can somebody please, before the series ends, tell me what's wrong with hanging around in the kitchen ? Millions of people have the kitchen as the hub of their home. Just because Lenny don't have theirs walled off and the only other place to sit and talk is across a space of sitting room with the middle of it left as a corridor to the bathroom and bedrooms, it doesn't to me invite ridicule. Nobody complains about the Howardette kitchen. 

     

    One of the complaints over the years is that Lenny have not been given enough opportunities for stories outside of the home, that their story has become boring because the only place we tend to see them is in their apartment and usually at the island. Part of it is that those Lenny stories, as Shamy have taken over, are just them hanging at the kitchen waiting for one or both of Shamy to come in to talk to them or standing there observing Sheldon dominating the scene - a classic case in point was the Spock documentary when they spent the entire episode at the island as an audience watching and commenting on Spock’s interview. Even last week, when Shamy went to the sensory deprivation tanks, Lenny only left the island to go observe Shamy there like they have no other point other than to be around in Shamy stories.

     

    Classic Lenny would often be seen in their iconic bedroom talks. Now they just talk at the island. Season 5-6 Lenny were seen going out. Now we just see them at the island talking about what they did.

     

    Nothing wrong with kitchen island itself as Lenny would often be there OR Penny’s kitchen island in earlier years. And it’s been exaggerated at times. But it’s become the symbol of diminished Lenny as Sheldon and Shamy have become more and more dominant.

     

    (It’s a Lenny thread so Howardette kitchen is of little interest. And they actually have appeared in the living room, the bedroom, the nursery, the back yard and deck interchangeablely quite a lot in comparison to Lenny and the island - and more often solo)

  7. I remember everyone at my elementary school had to learn it in fifth grade then we would have an assembly. I think half the kids faked it. 

    As a music teacher in the early 90s I taught Gr 3/4 children to play the recorder. I was not popular with the teachers next door!

  8. Wise choice with media. I’ve managed to get tickets to see it again over the weekend.  First time MUST be unspoiled. I remember when I was this enthusiastic about the latest TBBT episodes, now, not so much.

    Yep, last time I was that excited for BBT was when I went to the taping in 2017. I like spoilers for BBT but went for media blackout before End game last night. Tomorrow I’m just going to spot what I missed.

    Now for a connection to Season 12, the writers just got the timing wrong for the last episode, doing the table read just before End Game comes out. Missed opportunity to put it into the final episode. Surely the boys would be hanging out to see it, Nobel or not. Would love to have revisited those wacky visits to the movies from earlier seasons one more time.

    Seeing it AGAIN tomorrow! Perfect ending. Nuff said. Here’s hoping we get an as close to perfect as these BBT writers can achieve ending for BBT.

  10. It's been a sucky season. I know many people who have given up but will probably be back for the finale.

    I’m from a family of “closers” so have to finish everything I start. Some episodes have been bland and disappointing but I’ve watched them all. Wished the baby thing never happened but still want to know if they move Lenny “off the island” by the end so I’ll be there.

  11. I'm just kidding but I thought you wanted to steal the kitchen island from lenny

    Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk


    No, Lenny’s island is probably the main reason for the apartment match ups.

    Other than when Raj gatecrashed girls night and that one time Penny was practising her bar tending with the boys way back, the kitchen bench in Penny’s apartment only ever had 2 or 3 around it because it’s smaller. (Other than the Halloween party, group scenes were in the main apartment. They even moved the Penny blossom manufacturing to the big one. )

    Considering the main purpose of Lenny is to be waiting at the island for Shamy to barge in looking for help or to stand there overlooking everyone else, Lenny could not survive in the show in any other environment that the main apartment with the big kitchen island ( insert sarcasm sign here )

  12. I call BS on the “Amy is representing the whole community of women scientists being recognised by winning Nobel prize” thing.
    I know it’s in a different field, but they literally had Frances Arnold on last week’s episode as a female Chemistry Nobel winner.
    And a woman ( Donna Strickland) won the Physics prize last year as well. And 6 Nobels for women in Medicine/Physiology in the last 15 years. 8 role models in science for female students to aspire to in the last 15 years is not quite the crisis being built into this plot. Feel it’s another forced add on to magnify this domination of Season 12 for yet another week of Shamy front and centre. Just not necessary IMHO.

  13. It will end up like their engagement announcement- 5 seconds of happiness overshadowed by Raj announcing he had sex.
    Or their wedding live stream interrupted by Shamy fighting and everyone missing it.

    Or their decision to finally move in together as married couple hijacked by Sheldon meltdown and Penny caving to keep the big baby happy.

    You just know that whatever happens for Lenny it will be pushed to the background so that they have time to support Shamy.
