    Hahaha!  I must be getting old.  The only things I noticed in the photograph was how blue everything was and why is Chuck;'s hair so dark when he is 4-5 years older than me???!!!  ("only his hairdresser knows for sure"---1960's-1970's hair coloring commercial slogan!!!)

    Funny I thought Chuck was looking old. I didn’t notice her boobs till it was mentioned. Granted my avatar makes them more obvious.

    I tend to agree with you. I don't think a Beverly/Leonard deep story will happen. Maybe a skype session like she had in a previous episode where she told Leonard that she was proud of him for marrying Penny. As far as Lenny moving out of 4A it is about a 50-50 chance. I just keep thinking about what Holland said in an interview that there will be a big decision for them..........is it a big job offer for either of them Penny or Leonard, is it buying a house, or as all Lenny fans seem to want is Penny pregnant.  I guess anyone of these will be a happy ending for Lenny   Time will tell....the clock is ticking down

    Saw an interesting article on screen rant. Kind of discussion what Lenny have on here. They thought the pregnancy talk was left open ended.

  3. I just don’t think the Lenny story is going to end with a Leonard/Beverly story. I also don’t think Lenny is going to move out of 4a either. There is no reason. I don’t buy Leonard is going to get a job somewhere else after they made a big production to show Penny’s sales success. Status quo for Lenny IMO doesn’t make a good show ending. Not just for Lenny fans but viewers in general. People want a memorable finale but a few laughs too.

    By doing what ? Once married, people can't get more married than they are, can they ? What is progress as a married couple ?  Lenny don't have an old house to renovate together, neither of them being of a DIY inclination. They are not keen gardeners. There's no visible evidence of anything like that they can point to to show the progress of something they've started together, are getting on with, and will be useful or beautiful when finished. If they lived in Europe they might take classes in a foreign language together and enjoy using it as they build expertise and take trips abroad.  As it is, what could they do that makes them looks as though they progress ? They are both working and interact with colleagues separately but have friends in common. They have things to talk about and go to places together.

    Where have they gone together. It seems Howdette and Shamy have storylines.

    Love, success and happiness is not a big win?? Lol.

    Why is it not the same for Shamy?

    His big win is Amy and Nobel. Nothing wrong with that. Different characters can have different endings. It does not have to be the same ending for everyone.

    So are suggesting there is no point of Kaley and Johnny to show up for the final tapings?

    Leonard's big win is Penny. Penny's big win is Leonard. Kids are "The Prophecy"s big win.

    Then Sheldon's big win is Amy? And Amy's big win Sheldon?

    So Leonard and Penny are married  and that should just be enough for them(no prizes or babies whatsoever). Sheldon and Amy are also married but thats not enough, they should also have a Nobel prize and some babies.

    And if they don't win the prize it's been a giant waste of time

  7. It seems to me the story about Howard’s father should be left as is. If the father as a big of jerk as it may appear to be it would be a downer for the show as it comes to an end. If the father has a reason for how he acted it could question if Howard’s mother told Howard the entire truth. Whatever happened happened and if the truth came out does it makes things any better for Howard. Of course the other 6 know about the letter and if he wants to know something he could ask

  8. Haven’t been on in awhile. Have a few comments:

    1. Am I the only who could careless about the multi-cam record?I agree with 3kull about the quality of the show. Would have put more concern about the writing than patting themselves on the back.

    2.  I will go with April assessment of Saltzburg but I would question  why they couldn’t go find, or afford, another consultant with a neuroscience background. Again Prady and Co. too busy patting themselves on the back.

    3.As most others have pointed out this assymetry storyline has to end. I personally had little interest to begin with. It’s now moved to no interest. It’s taking up time for a show that’s about to end. Sad if you think about it.

    It always annoys me when writers unnecessarily ignore how things are really done. When real life possibility costs nothing and wouldn't harm the script I find mistakes and inaccuracies very distracting. It interferes with my suspension of disbelief.  Certainly if something ridiculous is funny and enhances a comedy, I can accept that. The same nurse being on duty wherever they go,for instance, I can take as a running gag because I know they're doing it on purpose for laughs. If it's put in as a result of laziness, sloppiness and not checking facts, that's another matter. Bernadette's year-long pregnancy is an example. Had they mentioned the length of it in the script so that it was something to laugh at, that would have been OK by me. Announcing it on February 14th and giving birth on December 17th with no reference to the baby's arrival being three months overdue resulted in my begrudging the writers their fee. 

    There was no excuse since December 17th wasn't the first episode of the season.

    Gotcha :) and I agree with you.

    I don't look for much realism in the show either as it is just for entertainment, I have enough reality in my own life. I miss Gabelhouser. Would have been nice to see him. Perhaps we will see him again before show end.

    In terms of the show Gablehauser and Siebert really play the same role.

    But I still think they didn't base everything on that being their endgame from the start the way a certain group of fans saw it, as a promise to come. And that doesn't mean they'll alter their plans now. The outcry has been virulent since the no baby storyline, but I think things were possibly set for the end of the season by then. I'm still not optimistic about it at all. Which is okay for me because I am a big no baby fan and always have been. I didn't want for romances or family drama. I tolerate Howardette's kids because we don't have to see them, but that's never been why I watched. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but as I said before I'm just not feeling it right now.

     

    If Penny didn't know ahead of time that he was going to jeopardize his job to make a point, yeah, I think she'd be upset. Even if she told him not to take her feelings into account, for that I kind of think husbands need to. Is this another thing that they should have discussed as a couple? I'm not understanding all of this. I need to see it. 

    On a slightly different topic many were okay on her decision not to have children without Leonard’s input. I remember the episode where she had her own investment advisor when talking with Howdette. They were married then . Nobody said nothing.

    Yes, Penny did quit TCF and she does make big bucks, however, it would be a shock to any committed relationship to learn that your spouse is looking to quit their job without having a conversation first.  At least that's my opinion... :)

    See above. You were their at the episode. I’m guessing it pertained to how Leonard always backs down and acts wimpy. It sounds like he is encouraged not to. He doesn’t.  People always comment he doesn’t have a spine. This episode he appears not to and some complain. I remember Penny saying she liked take charge Leonard. Apparently not.

    As you have pointed out before, not everyone watches Young Sheldon that watch TBBT...

     

    You don’t have to watch YS to be aware of what’s happening on the show. JMO but knowing Shamy will have kids isn’t as newsworthy as the first time coitus

    Ok so everyone seems to be interested in the leonard story, here's the 30,000 foot view. I wont give a play by play spoiler but it should be enough :)

    So, episode opens with The gang on the couch, similar to "olden times" :).  They were discussing what movie to go to and where/when to eat dinner. Everyone had an opinion and Leonard did not want to eat late at night. Sheldon argued with him, Leo caved and the entire group told him he as "satisifier", as somone who does whatever anyone else wants to take the least path of resistance.  Afterwards, Penny continued to push Leo to see that the group is correct and to start doing what makes him happy, and to not take penny's feelings into account for things he wants to do.

    So, Penny tells Leo to pick an activitiy, and he struggles with that. He also shows Sheldon the "new strong" Leo and takes a new way to work (or home, or somewhere, I don't remember) which frightens Sheldon.

    What the real Pivot point of the episode in my opinion was that Leonard feels his job is inadequate, and he is unhappy. He writes a proposal to President Sibert (spelling) about leading up a plasma physics team, and he was not willing to take no for answer even if that meant leaving the university.  Penny found out and was rather upset, as any wife would when her husbands job might be in jeopardy and he argues with her about it.

    In the end, President siebert said no and Leonard walked out.

     

    The show ended with Penny discussing what happened with Leonard and it was revealed that after Leonard walked out, Siebert said they didn't want to loose him so gave him a Co-lead position on a different "study" (don't remember what is was about).  Leonard was happy with that and that he stood up for himself.

    My take on this:  I feel they could have filmed an alternate ending, where Leonard was NOT offered a different position and come to find out that Leonard is going to leave to go to a different university.   IT would be a befitting ending to the show's dynamic, as he would be the first of the 4 to leave the university which could the the "end event".

    Let me know if what I posted does not make sense.

     

    Thanks for the info. Two points though. Didn't Penny quit TCF? Doesn't Penny make the big bucks?

    The following was reported by insomniak, in the "Information to Attend a Taping" thread.  It was moved here as that is not a spoiler thread.  

    **MILD SPOILER ALERT**
    So, as for the episode, I will not give out a full Play by Play on what we watched, but will give an overview..

    Previous taping.  - Story continues in regard to Sheldon and Amy's Nobel prize, No finalization there. There was a personality switch between 2 main characters which was foreseeable within the subtext of the episode but was needed.  There was also a rather "back to the shows roots" story involving Howard, Raj, and Bernadette which I found funny and reminiscent. No real shockers or reveals with Leonard or Penny.

    The taping we saw:  Show took again a "back to its roots" Format, which I really enjoyed. Felt more like a season 3-5 episode than the current season's wind down. Leonard and Raj are the 2 main story points in this episode. The group confronts Leonard about an issue that should have been addressed seasons ago so we could have seen more organic growth but it is relevant to cleanly breaking the series.  It's a good character development move for Leonard which could be the basis of the series finale IF they decided to develop it more.  In WHAT WE SAW BEING TAPED (yes, I capped that for a reason), it seemed the development/story did the typical Birth, Growth, Death cycle you see in a 30 minute sitcom BUT I wouldn't be surprised if there was an alternate story line taped as I really feel this could be a great story progression to end the show.

    Raj's story did have Anu Present but it had nothing to do with their relationship. It focused around Raj's work and his reputation within the scientific community. Was a great side story to the primary plot.

    You would think the Leonard story could relate to Penny and or his mother? I'm not sure how interested I am in Raj's work but I guess we will find out.
