  1. I have as low an opinion of them as he does, if not lower.
  2. I'll give my opinion of that strategy. It was lame-ass stupid. This is one of the things I TOTALLY agree with you on. I also TOTALLY agree with this. I thought they were going downhill from season eight. And the last two seasons especially so. I don't know why they even did them, aside from the money, as they were that bad.
  3. YES! Exactly! Although I was not waiting for a Nobel personally. I really thought they were going to get nominated but not win, and that was what was going to make Sheldon appreciate his friends finally. (Because they would still support him even if he didn't have a Nobel.) I'm glad he finally appreciated his friends, but I still would have liked my way better. It would have made more sense to me. And that is okay. Sometimes we have agreed, and sometimes we have not, but I've always enjoyed your posts. THAT is what really matters. No one here ever said anyone had to like every single thing about the show to be a fan. That's what irritated me on a few other boards. If you were at all critical of anything they did, anything at all, some of the people on there were always like, "Well, why do you watch the show then? Why don't you go away?" I didn't stop watching because there was always more to like than I disliked and I still wanted to see what happened next.
  4. I acknowledged that some posters did. I know you would have liked to have seen that. But I would have been just as happy with none at all, and that includes Howard and Bernie. But I'm not playing tit for tat just because they gave Howard kids. Maybe it's because 90% of the time I just didn't like Penny. I don't know. But I don't think any of the pregnancies did much for the show and I still think to toss one in at the end was just throwing a bone to the fan base that waited so long for it.
  5. I didn't want to see any more pregnancies, so in that sense the season was okay up until the end for me personally. I know others feel differently and that's okay.
  6. The Tony for Best Revival of a Play went to The Boys In The Band. I'm sure Jim Parsons is quite pleased about that.
  7. I'd love to do the studio tour again. I haven't gone in a long time.
  8. When I was at Anne Hathaway's cottage when I was doing a Shakespeare tour of England and Wales, I was talking to a reenactor who said 15 generations of the family had lived there. I told them we thought we were doing well because five generations of the family lived at the historical farm where I work. When he laughed I pointed out that to him 200 years was nothing but to me, 200 miles was nothing. My friend who had the degree in folklore wanted to work in a library but didn't want to get a Master's in library science, which kind of stymied that desire.
  9. My mind immediately went to the Three Stooges. (My husband is a huge stooge fan.) Moe Howard was supposedly an expert at that.
  10. One of my daughter's friends stayed a college student until he was 33. We called him a professional student. Anyone of any age can be a student. Another friend of one of my kids graduated with a major in something that was impossible to get a job in and went back and started another major. I personally had a friend who majored in Mythology and Folklore (why I'll never know) and had to go back to school when they couldn't get a job.
  11. Lucy definitely could have evolved. She was broken, but so was Raj at that point. They had to make him so pushy and desperate...but then they did that over and over again. Perhaps he was the one who needed the most character growth. I agree with everyone who's said he didn't get it. THIS^^^ If they had done that earlier, it could have been very funny. There's so much they could have done with a geeky girl. Did they realize too late that geeky girls exist? Denise was probably one of the best done side characters they had in the history of the show.
  12. Yes, that's possible but if anyone would have a shot at understanding socially awkward guys who are fixated on their animals, I thought a female vet would.
  13. Yeah, because it wasn't really a good story. They just made a laundry list of stuff they thought the fans would like and checked everything off one by one. And not going into Lenny's reaction to the pregnancy kind of spoiled it as i see it. But this has been discussed to death in the season 12 episode thread and I suggest you check it out.
  14. In talking about what was left to our imagination, and about all the wasted time this season, which most people have commented on, can we hit one more time on what they SHOULD have touched on that they dropped? I have a long list. Here are just a few things. 1. What happened with the tenure? 2. What happened with Howard's dad and brother? 3. Why was Sheldon so fond of Bill Nye when he has a degree in mechanical engineering and not science? I thought for sure at some point Howard would needle Sheldon about that. I kept waiting for it since it was just so obvious to me that he'd know. 4. Why did we never see Leonard's siblings or Penny's sister, even once? 5. After portraying them so badly in early eps why did they do the turnaround and make Amy's Mom and Sheldon's Dad so much more palatable? 6. What happened to reconcile Penny to her job? Was it the money or the fact that she turned out to be good at it? 7. Why didn't they follow up on Yvette the vet for Raj? No one in the fandom seemed to be polarized by her. Anyone want to carry on? I know you all have things you wish had not been mentioned and tossed out that still matter to you even though the show is done..
  15. I wonder sometimes, though, if after watching reruns and giving it more thought, if anyone would come up with different perspectives, or see something they missed the first time. And there is certainly the possibility that people connected with the show will make comments on things that happened or were discussed that we don't yet know about and we can go into what we think of those things. JK Rowling lit up a lot of Harry Potter boards with things she said about the characters after the series was done. Of course in her case there was a lot of "If she wanted me to think that it should have been in the books" and "is it or is it not canon if she says it" debate, I hated the ones where the grammar and spelling were so bad that I wanted to take a virtual red pen and start correcting them. Oh, I loved those, too. We used to pass around photocopied ones at school before the Internet came along. And Man from UNCLE! Then they did Return of the Man from UNCLE and pissed off most of the fan base.
  16. How many times have we seen Cinnamon, though, the last couple of seasons. Not much. I still wish they hadn't blown their chance to expand the role of Yvette the vet.
  17. I gave two suggestions in my original post. I also like veejay's suggestions. And we still have the science in the news and chit chat pages. Fanfic is fine if it stands alone, like the fanfic forum here, where it can easily be avoided if one wishes. That does not seem be the case if a season 13 section was added if I'm reading it right. To be honest, I just have, over the years, come to hate fanfic. (And this is coming from someone who used to write it for other shows, granted, a long time ago, but I did.) It costs nothing, it's worth nothing and like fan art, people get all bent out of shape if you make the smallest criticism of it. Some of my worst arguments I've had with other fans have been about fanfic. It's not like the way we used to criticize the writers of the show here. If you aren't happy with the way a fanfic is going you are hurting the feelings of a friend. And it eventually stops. Most of the Buffy and Harry Potter boards I was on, for example, have disappeared or all but. Even some of the classic Doctor Who ones have gone down. If you guys want to do a fanfic type season 13 forum, I wish you the best of luck, but it just doesn't interest me personally. I prefer the fanfic forum stands the way it was originally put up. To me twelve is the last season and should remain so, page wise. I never said you couldn't keep the fan fiction forum. But I didn't think that was what was being proposed now. As I said above, a season 13 forum was mentioned here, just for fanfic. I just didn't think you needed a special area for it. This summed it up for me well:
  18. I will say until my dying day that they wasted a HUGE opportunity with Yvette the vet.
  19. Since I'm one of the people who thought the show should have ended a couple of years ago, I myself would not be interested. You'd be turning the page into a fanfic page, which is not what it was designed to be as I see it. Now if people want to follow the further careers of the actors or reminisce, I would be in for that. But whatever you decide to do I wish you all luck. We have a great group of people here.
  20. My late father in law's favorite thing...we actually used to buy him huge jars of it as gifts.
  21. There are fans on this very page who have said some version of, "we got our pregnancy, so I'm satisfied." So even screenrant seems to think fans were happy just getting thrown a bone with the shirt? Oh, come on.
  22. Seriously? Penny put with A LOT of crap from Sheldon. Her saying he should stay is why they didn't have him move out immediately when Lenny got married. She let a lot of insults in general slide from everyone, and it's not like Leonard stepped up and defended her when she was being called a slut, etc. If Penny HAD stuck up for herself more I'd have liked her a lot better and if Leonard had stuck up for her more I would've liked him better.
