  1. This should be a poll choice. The three offered are pretty limiting. So, I vote OTHER.
  2. It's actually not ridiculous but quite scientific. Positing that something may happen in theory ("the creators of a TV show may do something even if they said they wouldn't do it"), then citing a FACT that something exactly like that DID happen ("the creators of a TV show did something they previousy said they would never do") is evidence. No... It's not scientific or logical thought. Its comparing two FICTIONAL television shows. I'll buy you a copy of any 1,000 comic books you want the next time TBBT creative team is sitting in a room and someone says "On Buffy they did ______, let's do that too!!!" The two are purely fictional entities and 100% unrelated.
  3. I previous worked on the PGA Tour (golf) and attended somewhere in the neighborhood of 75 Tournaments over two years, in nearly every major city in the USA. My favorite cities include New York, Chicago, Orlando in that order. Niagara Falls is also magnificent Cooperstown, NY makes the list as well. On my list of placed I want to go... Liverpool, Dublin, and Rome.
  4. The show is full of logic, science, and factual statements. If THIS, then THAT. Citing another fictional sitcom's choice to film _________ when it was at one point unpopular or unexpected, and using it as EVIDENCE that __________ could happen in another show is ridiculous. Imagine Penny telling Sheldon that her Aunt Betty tried a new restaurant once and liked it, and citing that "fact" (which is mere personal preference) as evidence that he should never eat at any of his favorite restaurants ever again. Sheldon would destroy her, mainly due to the weakness of the argument.
  5. Those encouraging Penny and Sheldon to get together baffle me only slightly less than the females obsessed with Jim Parson's looks and display a deep attraction to the actor, ignoring the elephant in the room.
  6. I voted yes. It's time...
  7. Sheldon: I would ask you to find some way to suppress your libido. Penny: I could think about you ... Sheldon: Whatever works. That is Penny straight up saying she does not find Sheldon sexually attractive. There is a more appropriate scientific analogy I'm sure, but I'll go with what I know. Game over, Slam Dunk, done deal. I'm with Syd on this one.
  8. Hmmm... The wedding reception is not in California? They go to meet Howard at NASA upon his return? Both lead to Sheldon and Amy in a hotel room. Ugh...
  9. huh??? She most definitely wasn't anything other than friendly - to ALL of them.
  10. Raj would watch the hell out of it. Pretty girls, nerdy guys, two of them date hot chicks - one guy even got married to one. He'd identify with everybody and secretly want to be Leonard or Howard at bedtime.
  11. And Penny made it clear that if they weren't friend she'd be on Raj like e=mc2. If she's ever made a similar claim or quantified ANY attraction at ALL to Sheldon, then you'd have a point. She hasn't....
  12. Forrest cared more for others from age 6 to 6 1/2 than Sheldon Cooper has in 29 years. A cute blonde gave Forrest something special, perhaps in part out of pity or giving...which later turned into a relationship. No way Penny Panties are coming off for Sheldon.
  13. Random rewatching, with the DVR set to have 6 episodes on it all times.
  14. Penny and Sheldon have already had a relationship on screen It was called Forrest Gump and Jenny.
  15. With the way Howard and Bernadette were yelling in her direction, I expected her to be MUCH farther away.
  16. How would he know? Reading about it.... Moisture and fluids, etc. Simple.
  17. Bernadette helps him get over his mutism now that she's in Howard's life and Raj will still want to spend lots of time with his friend?
  18. Tecmo Super Bowl, Baseball Stars, any of the early FIFA Soccer games for Sega. The current PS3 version is great as well as MLB 12.
  19. I haven't noticed Sheldon being too different.... And the physical changes to Jim Parsons don't bother me at all. "Robot" Sheldon is over with... The last scene of the finale shows it IMO. "Boldy Go Howard Wolowitz" was FULL of emotion and admiration in a way not yet seen from Sheldon, ever. The old Sheldon was mostly entertaining, I understand for some he was the #1 reason to watch the show. But I'd be quite pleased if Sheldon continued to change, continued to inch closer to normal daily human emotional interaction. To NOT do so severely cheapens the finale - so... Bye bye Robot! Raj was thinking about HOWARD - not Bermadette during the launch scene. She reached out to HIM. Why? Because she knows he cares for his friend a great deal, she knows he spends a lot of time alone and she knows the marriage will get in the way of their friendship, or at least change it significantly/reduce the amount of time the spend together. She held his hand perhaps in part to let him know she understands all this, and perhaps Raj will still get to be a part of Howard's life in a big way, not just because Bernadette will ALLOW it, but because she WANTS it. And that she was thrilled to be sitting next to him during the launch. There was ZERO sexual tension there. Those who are inserting it COMPLETELY missed out on the intention of the scene imo. On a side note, Bernadette was "surface of the sun" hot in her gown. Wow.
  20. The writer wanted the moment to be a big one for Sheldon - which is why Jim delivered the line the way he did and HE reached out to Amy, not the other way around. Sheldon also went LAST. If the moment was supposed to be about Howard/Bernadette, then Raj and her would have went LAST, or perhaps been the only ones holding hands or connecting in a way unique from the others in the room. The writers HAVE to explore this side of Sheldon now. It was too big a moment and it came in a Season Finale. He won't become an emotional softie or anything over the top, but I expect a new side of Sheldon to be on display more so than ever before. To NOT explore this new side of Sheldon will be EXACTLY what I don't like about the character. Legit emotional investment at times, or expressions of legit care for others, but then he treats some of them like complete crap when it's "funny" ("treasured acquaintance" should never be used again for example). Find more of a middle ground. He's no robot as evidenced during the launch. I also expect Raj to remain alone or continue to have his solitude a big part of the show, now that his relationship/friendship with Howard is diminished by marriage. It would be nice if Bernadette reached out to him and alowed him to be a bug part of her world, perhaps realizing it will be tough for him with less Howard in his life I also expect Penny's reaching out to hold Leonard's hand an indication of ENORMOUS repair in their relationship. L/P fans should be happy. (I am) GREAT SCENE! Here is the card, written by Chuck Lorre, that accompanied the episode and was on screen for about a 1/2 second at its conclusion.... CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #389 This may sound silly, but I had to stifle tears when we wrote the last scene of tonight's episode. The same thing happened when we rehearsed it. And then again when it was performed in front of a studio audience. And yet again when we watched the final version in an editing bay. I don't know what it is, but there's something primal, something deeply human being expressed when these characters unconsciously hold hands while watching their friend embark on a monumental journey. Speaking of which, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for watching The Big Bang Theory, for being part of our journey. I hope you've laughed a lot and stifled a little. I hope you're holding someone's hand. See you next year.
  21. The uniforms in Indianapolis are nothing like what you see on the show.
  22. Full disclosure here... I'm often amused by Sheldon, but I'm not a huge fan. His idiosyncrasies provide plenty of comedic material, but I find his insensitivity and selective emotional investment (ie when it suits him it's fine and no problem being an azz when it doesn't) a but of a stretch at times, as well as something the writers take advantage of too often. That said, his utterance of "Boldly Go Howard Wolowitz" before holding Amy's hand was a top ten TBBT moment of all time, and my favorite Sheldon line ever - BY FAR. Full of emotion, investment in his friend, admiration, excitement, and genuine pleasure and recognition of Howard's accomplishment as well as Sheldon realizing and enjoying the chance to share the moment with other friends. What a GREAT final scene. Extremely well written (even if there were not many lines at all) and WONDERFULLY portrayed! If you have not read Chuck Lorre's episode ending "card" (briefly on screen after each episode, written by Lorre himself each time) you need to look it up as it deals with this topic, and one of the most powerful TBBT scenes of all time for the writers as well as me. I'm iPhoning this, so posting the "card" is a little tougher. Perhaps someone can assist? Or, your thoughts on the line?
  23. Sheldon's Mom, certainly. The other three are annoying, uninteresting, and clearly have damaged their sons. Not appealing at all, and only mildly amusing... on occasion.
