  1. We don't know at what point they would have decided to end it if Jim hadn't done it at the beginning. And Johnnys relationship was serious and they were obviously thinking of starting a family or I think Johnny would have avoided doing so. I still say Kaley and Johnny are friends but he would not have based another decision on her. She doesn't run his business life and the show was all but done anyway. He hadn't had good storylines to work with for a couple of years.
  2. I totally disagree. They are friends but they do not run each other's business lives. Johnny is in a new relationship with a new baby. If there is any time to take some time to yourself it's when you are going to have a new baby on your hands. If the big three manage it well they have enough money to live on for the rest of their lives, and live quite well. None of them has to work at all if they don't want to. But it had been made clear to everyone that if ANY of the big three left the show was done. So Johnny leaving would have done the exact same thing Jim leaving did, except Johnny would have taken the flak for it, not Jim. And resigning didn't do a heck of a lot for Lenny storylines last time. He probably wouldn't think, based on that experience, that it was going to improve much if he signed again. I know some people think they owed something to the rest of the cast and the crew, but everyone in this business knows how it works. Nothing lasts forever and they were lucky to have the years together that they did.
  3. I've always believed in my heart that if Jim hadn't ended it Johnny would have. I totally agree. This can't have a long run as I see it. Are they really going to continue it with Sheldon at college, going through the same things he went through in high school but with taller kids? I don't see it working long term.
  4. I'll be surprised if they spin off, but I am going to watch and see how Young Sheldon goes. If it tanks, I think they will not think about it for awhile. if it chugs along, I think they might consider it. That's not based on what I want. It's based on how I think the showrunners think.
  5. Has anyone heard anything about the sitcom The Inn Crowd, the show Jim Parsons was supposed to start working on for NBC? I heard he was supposed to be doing another sitcom and then heard nothing more. I've been swamped with work and remodeling my house, though. I could have missed something. I know he's supposed to get as much as $20 million a year in syndication money for as long as TBBT reruns are on the air.
  6. I am hoping hard everyone from here escapes the worst of it. I have a friend who JUST moved to Florida, like literally two weeks ago and she is puzzled about how to behave. At present she is preparing as if it were a blizzard in her former Midwestern home. She is closer to Orlando, though.
  7. Oh, Illya for sure. I loved David McCallum dearly and I have to admit, he's aged well and is still fun to watch. I would do almost anything for a DVD of "Mother Love", the British mini series he did with Diana Rigg but I can't find one anywhere. I think I still have some of the U.N.C.L.E. paperback stories in my basement somewhere.
  8. I like six best, but the strongest part of season seven was the development you describe.
  9. Roger Moore. I love Roger Moore. Giving it more thought I also really mourned the end of The Man from UNCLE. Ah, faces come back to me now from Death Valley Days...Ronald Reagan, Rory Calhoun, Stother Martin, Robert Taylor, and don't forget 20 Mule Team Borax!
  10. I was watching Barney Miller last night. The one where the cop priest came to talk to Barney about his separation from Liz. I loved that show. I also watch The Saint and That 70's Show reruns regularly.
  11. The first one for me was Dark Shadows. I was just lost after that one. My friends and I all ran home from school to catch it and talked about it constantly. There were no video players then. I was mad for months when Soap ended because the cast had been so great and the ending was so stupid. When my kids were small all of my friends watched Scarecrow and Mrs. King and we talked and talked and talked about it. never watched Friends but I do understand about Two and a Half Men.
  12. Very easily. But I can't get into my DVDs either right now. Not even season six, which I adore. But this has happened to me with other shows at least six times, so I'm coping because I know the feeling will pass and someday I will be able to look at them again.
  13. You never know. In April of this year, the women's equal rights amendment saw action for the first time in 36 years. A resolution was sponsored in Congress to restart the process needed to add it to the constitution. It needed 38 states to pass and stalled at 35 in 1977. Interesting. I had not heard that. I know a lot of people who are freaked out because of Brexit because they work in one country and live in another and that's supposed to change. I have a friend who takes the Eurostar from England to Paris every day for work.
  14. The 14th amendment guaranteed it. I know it's a long shot but it would not the the first time an amendment was changed or discarded. They repealed prohibition, after all.
  15. They key words are the ones about air travel. That would NOT have been allowed. For international flights, the cutoff point often is earlier, sometimes as early as 28 weeks, depending on the airline. Obstetric conditions that may be exacerbated by flight or that could require emergency care scare the daylights out of airlines. Yes. Not everyone is like the states, where if you're born here, you're automatically a citizen, and for good reason. I wish frankly that we'd stop doing that.
  16. I don't see a lot of that anymore. I still think the finale was nothing but a lot of mopping up.
  17. RARE is right. That is not normal wolf behavior at all. I live near an animal research facility with wolves, foxes, coyotes and bison where they give tours and talk about the relationship between predators and prey and it's worth a visit if you're ever in the area. http://wolfpark.org/
  18. Because we didn't see any of her reasoning as to why she didn't want kids, never saw them discuss her issues with kids, didn't get to see her discovering she was pregnant, didn't get to see her telling Leonard and didn't see why she did a u-turn with her feelings when confronted with an unplanned pregnancy. Don't you think it would have been better if Penny and Leonard had discussed ANY of this on screen where we could see it? And obviously I am not alone in feeling those issues should have been brought out on the show. Did you really expect them to actually show Howardette having sex? Wasn't their physical attraction to each other enough? Do you really think Howard dropping Raj's phone in a urinal is as important a development as Penny's pregnancy? I agree with you that some things are a given but this was too important to leave everything connected with it off screen. Considering how many people wanted it so badly I can't understand why so many fans are happy with the crumbs they got tossed regarding this storyline. The donation crap with Zak got more screen time than anything to do with Lenny in the last season. I don't even like Lenny much and it bothers me. And it amazes me that I am the one defending what should have been. Again, we could go through two episodes about sperm donation but not discuss a pregnancy between two main characters?
  19. They never resolved Penny's issues about pregnancy. They just had her go out drinking with Sheldon and wind up pregnant. Those issues did not disappear as far as I'm concerned. I don't think they are perfect. But they both got what they wanted and had discussed what they wanted and where they wanted to go with their lives and both pretty much agreed on it. And they have a lot in common, especially personality wise.
  20. Aren't you the one that used to complain about how badly she treated Leonard? That she shouldn't have gone out to get pizza for her husband and then eaten it with Sheldon just for one example? And weren't there a dozen or more "Penny settled" jokes over the years? Some fans can't forget things like that just because the writers pulled an unexplained, unexplored pregnancy out of their asses in the finale and say that now everything is perfect for Penny and Leonard.
  21. There were many times Sheldon referred to them as friends. Agreed. She did not always treat Leonard well. She often worried more about Sheldon than she did Leonard.
  22. That happens a lot. They saw him as a friend and said so. He occasionally said they were as well. (Like when Sheldon told Penny not to hurt his friend.) We all have to decide if we have to go by what was said, or how we interpret what we saw. This issue came up a lot. One time it came up again when Penny told Amy she was her best friend.
  23. Not getting where the innocent idea is coming from In the first ep, Leonard calls him a pro at masturbating and says the sperm bank was his idea. Sheldon tells Leonard at one point that Penny is not going to have sex with him, implying he knows something about sexual attraction. Sheldon made a joke about coitus interruptus and told Leonard he thinks with his penis in that ep, both of which do not imply innocence to me. From the start he was not innocent. He knew a lot and sometimes presented that knowledge and sometimes preferred to hide it or deflect away from it as I see it. I'm not sure why. I could never get it and still can't. I like Leonard but could only tolerate Penny occasionally. For the most part I really couldn't stand her. With Itchy brain Leonard was being really stubborn. He could have called that off at any point. He just refused to. He played right into Sheldon's hands. Even though the writers never declared Sheldon on the spectrum, though, Jim said he played him that way, although I can't find that statement now and it's not for lack of trying. However, even without it, so many people who have an autistic family member saw Sheldon that way that I feel there had to have been something that the writers either didn't want to acknowledge or that Jim was putting into it with their permission. They had inappropriate social interaction, compulsive behavior, repetitive movements, total unawareness or disregard of other's feelings, and persistent repetition of words or actions just to name a few symptoms. Asperger syndrome has been removed as a formal diagnosis and those with the symptoms of what was formerly referred to as Asperger syndrome are now grouped in the category of spectrum disorder but when the show started tons of people were speculating Asperger's for Sheldon. The eidetic memory and and went so often I couldn't take it seriously. She should have taken him to the specialist.
