  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.
  13. Or maybe I'm mixing something up, who knows. haha
  14. Just the other day I noticed the many interior pics of her place and thought she's probably gonna sell soon. lol
  15. The rants I'm thinking about were more last year, I think, when you were in a bad head space and we had a little clash. It's a bit tongue in cheek, nothing negative. I enjoy your positive attitude.
  16. I'm happy that at least one season-long storyline lead to something. LOL
  17. 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
  18. Yeah, totally. They throw random ideas onto a wall and see what sticks. For some inexplicable reason they ended up with "Penny doesn't want kids" this season without any intention to actually honour the decision in the end. Like I've said in our past discussions I thought they had enough wiggle room to actually sell this if they were committed to it and for a long while they seemed to be going by interviews and having multiple episodes that double down on Penny's decision. It still would have sucked for fans who wanted babies but you know, at least it would have been somewhat coherent. But actually admitting that they knew from early on that they wanted to go back to the S&B Babies line it just renders the whole thing complete BS. So much lip service was paid towards the idea of women not needing babies to be happy and now they're just "haha, jk, of course everyone gets a baby!!"
  19. Yeah, this whole season long subplot was so unnecessary and those interviews during the season where they were all "not every woman has to have a baby bla bla bla" are just so hollow now. ugh
  20. Same. I don't mind Amy getting a makeover as such but the reason just came out of nowhere. Why is she suddenly bothered by looking "frumpy"?!? They could have just made it a spur of the moment thing cause the Nobel business got to her head or whatever and then after Raj worked his magic she could have just ended up liking it. I mean, the hair is cute on her so why not? I would have dialled back the outfit a bit and kept it more Amy'ish but then again it's coming from Raj so that makes sense. So yeah, mixed bag here.
  21. Sarah Michelle Gellar is a married woman there's nothing to work out. lol
  22. There was a lot to love in this finale I just wish it was backed up by a better season. For all that people were complaining about the Nobel at least they got it in the end and that speech really stuck the landing. But wasting so much time on exploring Penny not wanting kids only to have her accidentally get pregnant like no big deal was just so... ughh.. They could have actually given Lenny meaningful plots instead of wasting them on something that doesn't matter in the end (and seemingly never mattered to begin with if the writers kinda always wanted to go back to the S&B Babies anyway). ugh I had the same issue with Raj last week - a season wasted on what could have been an interesting idea that just got dropped like a hot potato. And nothing much for the finale either. Howardette were the most consistently written couple as ever. No complaints here and it was nice to see the kids as a parting gift to those who were worried they were just imaginary. lol Overall a few things were hit and miss, but all in all, a warm and fuzzy conclusion to this show with a good measure of fan service thrown in.
