  1. So they already had 7-8 written, but it's clear they made small edits to a few of them to contextualize a final season feel (those weird Tam inclusions into famous moments from show's history) and that still fell flat. The point is, when we get to episode 9, don't expect it to magically feel epic. It will be business as usual, except now maybe the execution of Anu will suddenly be changed if she was meant to be another Raj disaster before Raj would have found the one in either Season 13/Season 14/Season 67.
  2. Leonard's line at the end of the first episode was very creepy Glad it wasn't a premonition and they are doing what's truer to the characters! No reason to live back in 2007, society is so much different now
  3. Littering the final season with references from a show I don't watch is not going to get me to watch Young Sheldon, CBS They are one of the worst networks ever at cross promotion
  4. Of course they are proud about not planning arcs No doubt in my mind that Raj would continue to have filler plots in S12, probably based around being jealous of Stuart/Denise if Jim Parsons said he was staying What happens for Raj in 12.02 was whipped up exactly one night before at best
  5. How would Raj be written on Two and a Half Men, I wonder
  6. The arranged marriage part means Raj has a chance to be married in this Fall half of the season... if they go that way they better make it a convincing ship. Stuart/Denise is how Raj's thing should have been handled, but racist show gotta racist.
  7. I'm legitimately surprised people think Sheldon can be written out. What would they do for 20 minutes without Sheldon?
  8. If we got to a Season 14, the overall story would suffer even more. They'd either add more and more invisible babies or stall on it altogether. They would start copying the scripts of reruns word for word. No full time actress added for Raj either. Jim Parsons probably saw how many wheels on the train would spin. The end of last season wrapped up his character evolution. All that's left is the shiny science award. Every character has an easy wrap-up if it's just written already. The finale will likely be a one hour flash forward fest too, like most sitcom finales do.
  9. YES YES YES, FINAL SEASON BABY!!!!!! I'm really happy the season has a chance to use its time right, because that s12 premiere sounded like a ball of nothing in terms of setting up new storylines.

    1124 'The Bow Tie Asymmetry' (May 10)

    -8 years, 1 week of Shamy. But maybe more interesting is how episode 255 is the end of a 100 EPISODE LONG ARC. That's right, in episode 156 "The Anything Can Happen Recurrence", the idea of Sheldon needing to commit to Amy in order to have success in his career is predicted by a psychic. It shows a level of planning I can applaud. Fundamentally, I only have one problem with this circumstance. Super Asymmetry doesn't sound like real science at all, it just sounds like a snappy name they forcibly try to make into a metaphor for Sheldon's life. Weirdly, a little too perfect in how that presents itself. -They used the S10 Lenny wedding as a sex punchline with the parents, so I can see Season 12 opening with Raj and Missy in bed together. -Wil Wheaton getting that hit in his pride was Sheldon's best wedding present, even if he didn't witness the full extent of it. -I do like that one miracle begot another @ Stuart just needing the one date to lock down Denise' admiration. -Damn, Amy's mom was such a relentlessly bitter villain. The religious hijacking attempt was still the worse mother move, though. -Like Mark, I was to surprised by how all out the vows went with sweetness. One of the most intimate and serious few minutes in show's run. ;( -Imperfection, quirks, etc. will always catch my heartfelt attention in a person. I like what this sitcom espouses sometimes, Imperfection takes on a different meaning for TV though. Wrap things up in a little neat bowtie next year before the bow falls on the ground instead of just being crooked.

    I really don't see the cast signing for a 13th. They already have swimming pools full of money. There's no reason for them to bore themselves to 300 tapings. So the scripting better work on a finale-ish feeling season even if the decision is made at mid-season.

    1123 'The Sibling Realignment' (May 3)

    -Why does the cake have to be so plain? At least make it flag shaped. -Bernadette/Penny sure like family tension. They deserve that kind of wedding gift bag. -I guess we find out next episode that Amy's great aunt would've been available. -Raj has the best pets. We get it with the reproduction jokes though, the show makes it seem like Raj has more siblings than the Duggars. -I'll get it out of the way here, I don't care about Georgie or any of his tiresome (yes Sheldon that is great, don't listen to Leonard) talk about his profession. The biggest failing of Young Sheldon for me is that it completely ruins the context of Sheldon's childhood. Instead of actually having gone through a tough period in his life, now it's rewritten as everybody protecting him so that they can get away with making a bunch of closed-minded Texans seem like good people. Throwing out all realism. I also would have minded this less if it was a plot earlier in the season, but to have it be the penultimate chapter kind of hurts the flow. They could've made the wedding a two parter instead and gave more time to every family member, not just Georgie. -Walking Dead theme. Still less ugly than that dress. -I used to play with those beads in waiting rooms. *high fives Penny for having a naturally sanitary defense against bacteria like me despite what I touch* -Fruity Gratooty. -Now for the next rant, spoilers for finale. THAT'S how they end Raj for Season 11? We don't see an answer, we don't see him with anyone at the wedding, and oh yeah....WHAT HAPPENED TO USING THE PLANETARIUM? Why was that line even said? The end of 1117 makes it sound like that was the new plan to avoid Kripke's terms. Did the writers chicken out of a new milestone for Raj that would've happened there? I'll talk more about Stuart in my next post, but damn, Raj might take longer than Stuart to get married.

    I predict the CBS upfront today will inform that the upcoming season is the last season, and the marketing for that will begin Two and a Half Men announced in May 2014 itself

    1122 'The Monetary Insufficiency' (April 26)

    -What is this? Sheldon's first time playing Grand Theft Auto? I can't tell if that's believable or not. -The taste of the pie was cherrific. -Foreshadowing of Penny vs. Amy's mother. 8 years before a marriage is actually practical by the way. Counter that divorce rate. -Even 20 million sounds like too much for a University to deliver. But whatever, I'm all for a black hole being made if the cast all get sucked into it in the series finale. 😛 -"I can see why you'd think that, but no". -A dress showing no skin. The flag design is worth it. -Cookie Monster tattoo is the least of her mistakes. -If comic shops are anything like videogame stores, Sheldon might get 10 bucks for that entire box. -Being boldly honest is what makes you a girl, Bernadude. -65 grand in less than a week. If Sheldon set realistic goals he'd be ahead of realism right now. -Come on Penny, the guys outdress you on certain occasions. -I'm not much of a gambler, but Sheldon's method of play should be doable. -A pile of swans > Pelicans

    1121 'The Comet Polarization' (April 19)

    -Amy would make a good bodyguard. -Raj has a very small telescope, if you know what I mean. -So Stuart's status quo is bursting in an upward trend instead of combusting this time. Unless the writers are lying. -I used to get a new pack of Pokemon Cards every Sunday as a kid. I also got a pack just as I was receiving bad news. Sheldon's funeral home venue could work. I was also in my comic shop for free comic day and know how discombobulating a crowd can be while selecting. -While this comet catastrophe is more important for Raj's field, I have to side with furious feminist Penny and hope he gets hit by one. -Well Denise being on the comic staff hopefully makes her less disposable than Ruchi. Both fresh exciting people that should be added to regular cast to make five couples. -"Think of her as a friend you haven't berated, lectured, or condescended to yet." The first time is always the most fun. -One day and she's already better for the business than Stuart. And better for Sheldon to be betrothed to. Why did Amy assume there was no passion behind her expertise? -Is Raj still at Bert's or is this a new homestead? More interesting of a question than the resolution of trained liar Raj just needing to make an excuse for a form change. -You should've tried studying before Denise entered the picture, Ames. Sheldon's too exhausted for transparency.
