miramanee Posted April 27 Posted April 27 Hi guys! I signed up here on the forum today because I want to find out why the series was discontinued. Somewhere I read that Jim Parsons didn't want to continue. Which irritates me, because he is not necessary for the series. In fact, since season 7 he only disturbs. Because his character doesn't really develop, he is always the same nerd, who believes to know a lot means you are intelligent. And of course his conviction that the earth would turn only because of him and the sun would shine only for him. Overconfidence squared. First of all, it might be important to know that I bought the series online in German a few weeks ago. The English track is available for free, but I don't know English that well. Especially not when it comes to sarcasm and hidden insinuations. In other words, I only heard about this series not too long ago and decided to watch it. My family has never had television, we go to the movies or buy DVDs. Every now and then we book a movie or series online for entertainment. (Note: we don't have TV reception, but we do have TV devices that run mainly as monitors; so we redirect entertainment booked online with notebooks to them). So far I have avoided watching the last season. It would have been nice if 'Sheldon' would have been slowly removed in the 12th season and Barry Kripke would have been built up instead - a really brilliant supporting role. Sheldon would not be missed, because contrary to what Sheldon believes about himself, he is as dumb as bread. A walking, pompous data storage device, nothing more. Kripke has such a cool way of unsettling everyone and also driving them a little crazy. A good man, in whom the role of Mayim Bialik could have fallen in love, after Shelden would have gone missing in the Arctic like Lex Luthor once did in Smallville. As a final scene, he could have been shown in Hawking's wheelchair on an iceberg. Frozen with icicles on his nose. The series could have run for another 10 years without Jim Parson, with him there was probably no choice but to end it. LG, Janisha.
