    Close, but no cigar. It could have been a toss up between Raj/Howard or Raj/Stuart.  😊

    I felt they could have given Raj some sort of closure at the end by possibly having him keep in touch with Anu  and since she was in London maybe she could have gone to Sweden to meet Raj for the Nobel ceremony. Even then you still could anticipate whether they stay together or not. Think this would have been alot better than the ridiculous scenes with Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    He shouldn't have stayed with Priya. Penny was and continued to be the love of his life. Even with the satisfying sex, Priya kept trying to change him. Change him by different clothes, wearing contacts and not being understanding of his love of playing video games. Don't get me started on his love of Science Fiction or Super heroes and comic books. Penny never tried to change him. She helped him buy suits for formal activities like university functions and dates. Penny loved his glasses and liked him the way he was. As Stuart once said, "Lenny together, makes one awesome person". Leonard and Penny belong together. Leonard and Priya, not so much. Plus, the first chance she got, she cheated on Leonard with her ex while in India. 

    Sorry, that boat has sailed already. Leonard wouldn't take her back even if he was lonely and desperate. Priya cheated on Leonard with her ex the first chance got back in India and she considered it no big deal. Now Leonard did kiss Alice and that is a small cheat. He did call and told Priya of the kiss and apologized for the kiss. By that time Priya already had sex with her ex and had no thoughts of telling her boyfriend. So, Leonard wouldn't take her back.

    Additionally, Leonard deep down still loved Penny even when he was dating Priya.  I think Penny had a kindness, a caring that Leonard felt in his heart that Priya did not have. The only time I felt a little sorry for Priya was when Sheldon blackmailed her and Leonard into the revised RA, but even then she did not want to tell her parents about Leonard so I think the handwriting was kind of on the wall.

    But hasn’t he been “read the riot act” before? I have no doubt that after 12.24 Sheldon went back to the “same old, same old” setting of demeaning, belittling and intellectually demeaning those closest to him. 

    Since I have no data to refute that I must agree with you!

    I thought Sheldon was an example of a form of autism. Hopefully his character has given an appreciation for those with the disorder, has educated the general population, and raised the status of those with it. 

    Well, it was never expressed what his condition is....so for arguments sake he is OCD, obnoxious, insulting, and condescending to anyone he comes in contact with. It amazed how he kept any friends at all as he considered them his minions to take care of his every whim and chauffeur him wherever he needed to go. But I guess his friends enabled him just like his family did and so to him he expects this kind of attention.  And to think it took 12 years in the finale episode for someone  (Amy) to read him the riot act that his friends only tolerated him because he "never means to" insult them. Maybe if they had not let him get his way so much he might have realized it a little sooner.

    I thought I would drop this in here.  Most of you know I'm writing a fan fic about Penny's pregnancy.   One thing that a lot of people don't know or realize, is that Penny, in the show, would have been due, either last week, or sometime this week.     

    While the show ended in May, episode 23, The Change Constant,  depicts the 9th of October and one or possibly two days after that.  Nobel prizes are announced on 9 October.   Episode 24, The Stockholm Syndrome,  depicts the week before and up to, the 10th of December (The prizes last year were handed out on the 10th).   With Penny claiming the sex with Leonard, after she got drunk with Sheldon, as the occurrence that caused the pregnancy, conception would be sometime the second week of October, which gives her the due date during the weeks mentioned.  

    So, for all the Lenny lovers out there, by next week, their child will have been born.   


    Thanks  for the update.  However, another beautiful moment which we Lenny fans got jilted out of watching

    Yes, it's good to see Schmooshy again. It seems she's taken a small hiatus from the public eye. Simon as well.

    Just want to wish a Happy 2 year anniversary to Kaley and Karl....and may your best years be yet to come

    She has always loved her family.

    That is probably a good reason why she is so grounded and down to earth as a special person

    Nope.  I heard this morning that another movie, will start shooting in June, in the UK.  The two actors (Chris Pratt is one of them) will fly to the UK, and then be put into a two week quarantine, and will have to pass a Covid test before they start.   But, there is no word on when they will start shooting in the US.  SAG is going to determine when they feel it's safe for the actors.  EQUITY is doing the same thing for stage actors.  

    Boy,  stop the world I want to get off!

    It's very common.  I hate watching recordings of plays I've been in.  My daughter hates it too.    When you're watching yourself, you start thinking about why you made that acting choice and not another acting choice, or something you thought looked great, while you were doing it, actually really looks bad.  Some, like Kaley, in addition to how they appear, hate how her voice sounds.  For that reason, she doesn't watch herself

    However, she's having to get over not hearing and not watching herself.  As the executive producer, on The Flight Attendant,  she's in the editing bay, when they are editing the show.  So she has to watch and listen to herself.  Other actors that have made the transition to producers have also had to learn to get over it.

    Have you heard anything about when they will finish filming the last three episodes of The Flight Attendant

    Nope. Topless and naked a two different things.

    I did clarify it by saying "in one form or another" and not totally naked

    I disagree. No long explanation, I just disagree. I believe anyone who tries that will either get a letter or a visit from the IRS. I don't believe they're legitimate deductions.

    Have  an observation:  watching a rerun of S7 E1  "Hofstadter Insufficiency"  where Penny tells Sheldon about her topless scene in Serial Apeist and he reveals to her that he had seen it along with Howard. So, this means to me that all four of the guys have seen Penny naked in one form or another. Leonard, of course as her husband, Sheldon when he took her to the hospital and peeked, and the naked night with Raj, and now it is revealed that creepy Howard has seen her in the buff as well

    Many people, including celebrities are going “dark” . Some just for today, others from now to June 7 (I believe). Others are leaving social media for other indeterminate periods of time. Not sure about Kaley  and Karl.

    Yes, I have seen that today. Even my daughter and granddaughter have gone "dark".  I know Kaley is passionate about her causes but she also is addicted to social media and how people perceive her and what they say about her. So, I kind of feel this may not be a long term thing. However, I do support her and all others in this cause and after 250 years times do need to change.....like the title of the last  BBT episode  "CHANGE IS CONSTANT"

    Just saw a post from Kaley that she is going off social media for the Black Lives Matter movement.  Is this a permanent thing or just a  temporary protest?

    Here's a possible answer to Penny's last name, or at least her stage name. You can find images of the movie posters from Serial Apeist, and Serial Apeist 2-Monkey See Monkey Kill. We need a computer geek. You can see that the Serial Apeist 2 poster states 'starring Wil Wheaton', even though he and Penny were fired. I can not make out if Penny is also credited on either poster. It is blurry. 

    Yeah I tried looking at that for some clue of her last name...even with a magnifying glass  but to no avail

    Does she really need the money because she has not been working or is she just totally bored after 2 1/2 months of quarantine?

    I personally have no problem with either Sheldon, the character or Jim Parsons, the actor.  Jim portrayed Sheldon perfectly, in my opinion. My problem is The Powers That Be transformed TBBT into The Sheldon Cooper Show. The once ensemble show became a one main character show with a cast of supporting actors. As good as an actor Jim is or as interesting a character as Sheldon is, a didn't care for 15 minuets an episode of them. The show was better in the earlier years when it was an ensemble show. The cast blended better and complimented each other better in the earlier seasons. That's my opinion, others may see things or feel differently and that's alright too. story lines 

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. As you say Jim Parsons played this character perfectly  The only problem for me was that he dominated almost every episode. I have mentioned previously on this forum that Sheldon/Shamy stories took up  about 75% of the  episodes the last three years . I also must say that watching all the reruns Sheldon became such an annoying character  for me that you just wanted someone to tell him to STFU  I also agree the writers took away  some storylines from the other characters to write the Sheldon/Shamy characters
