  1. 8 It really depends on personal experience. For example their age difference is exactly the age difference between me and my dad so anyone of 20+ years older is parents age territory. But if she grew up with a dad who's 50 years older then obviously she feels different about that. lol yeah, "out of wedlock" is not a drama anymore. Also to add: I'm not particularly worried here cause Johnny seems to be a decent person. I'm sure he'll be a good dad and everything.
  2. Part of the issue is that she's still so young. In your examples the women were way into their 30s when those relationships started. Alaina is in her early 20s. Not saying that the relationship is doomed or whatever but the idea of dating someone as old as your parents, especially at that age, is a bit *yikes* for many people.
  3. The list is pretty mixed from what I can tell. Some ratings hits, some classics, some small genre shows. When The Leftovers was on I used to joke that this was the best show nobody watched. lol
  4. Six Feet Under is correctly at #1 - best finale ever! Also liked the inclusion of The Leftovers. And of course TBBT somewhere down the list.
  5. Well, it's hard to show any caving afterwards when the show ends on Sheldon's speech. Don't get me wrong, I'm also in the camp of thinking that this was different or, well, a bigger step forward than usual. I just also can't exactly blame anyone thinking Sheldon will be back to his old form afterwards cause in the years and years of the show it happened so often (and the last two years under the new showrunner let him regress even more if it served the story). So after all those baby steps of progress seeing Sheldon flounder this hard again was a bit tough. To be fair to the writers though, while it would have been nice to see more of that "Sheldon has changed" payoff (i.e. have him react more mature during the finale demonstrating how far he's come) they probably needed something to generate conflict for the story or else this would have been a boring love fest with not much actually happening. And that speech wouldn't have come out the way it did.
  6. Bruce Banner - he has more PHDs There's a bit of lip service paid to how people are done with enabling him and even Amy doesn't cushion her reactions any more that makes it feel a bit more serious this time around but ugh yeah, I can't deny that this is a bit "been there, done that". But I guess in the end it's also part of the fanservice laundry list - dig out some of the greatest hits to say good bye.
  7. Yes, that. Substitute Harry Potter with something Avengers and you get the picture:
  8. I think it would feel odd with the Lenny scene since they already know she's pregnant and I would expect Lenny to talk about it when they found out. But they had Amy directly ask her about it and we didn't really get an answer. "It was an accident" and all that only answers how it happened but not why she's okay with it. Heck, they could have blamed it on the hormones at least!
  9. @veejay Can we get a few GIFs with Amy's new look(s)??
  10. I know that's what was said in the scene but it didn't feel true to her character. Like she never saw herself on a picture or what? Come on! She knows her style and didn't care what people said - that was always great about her. I said before: I'm not totally against the makeover and I'm fine with the result but the reason how it came about felt not quite right.
  11. What's especially baffling is that they could have easily used the donation plot to let Penny change her mind. All it would have took were a few small changes (like the prospect of Leonard fathering someone else's child made her realise that if he has kids they should be from her) and whole thing would fit just fine. As much as I like the show the biggest moments of frustration have always come from little things like this. lol
  12. Even if that were the case they had all the time in the world to correct the course and craft a more coherent story instead of doubling down on the no kids thing.
