[Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I think Teller would be funny as the officient, especially if everyone's getting sick and he can't talk during the ceremony. Lol However, it seems like everyone has Mark Hamill pegged as the officient and Teller as Amy's dad. I guess we'll know soon enough.

They dated before season 3 if my memory serves right. Technically as you said they started in s3 but the romantic feelings were there before. Which was my point as the crush Leonard had on Penny was one of the show topics in s1 and 2.

They had 1 or 2 disasters of dates. A crush by Leonard does not make them a couple, So no Lenny. They were not a couple, they were just friends. Not even friends with benefits.

I think that's going to be Mark Hamill.  I think Teller and Kathy Bates are Amy's parents.

I don't know who any of these people are. I'm a bit disappointed after the head-blowing tweet.

Don't forget Judging Amy. Jim made several guest appearance on that show 

Jim also worked with Mark Hamill on the Elf Christmas special he made.

Okay, that's easier for Stuart. He only has to babysit little Michael/Neil. :icon_wink:

Oh, and Mark Hamill, who you may know as Luke Skywalker.

There are some notable absences, like June Squibb as Sheldon's Meemaw and Annie O'Donnell as Amy's mother. Maybe that part has been recast and Kathy Bates is Amy's mom and Mark Hamill is Amy's dad? Wouldn't that be weird! My real prediction is that he'll marry Sheldon and Amy.

...Did I read that right?

I actually thought that was Jessica Radloff from Glamour who wanted to marry Sheldon and Amy.

She is old. Not well enough perhaps.

Thank you. I followed the links. I didn't recognise any of them.

These casting announcements were made today, but there were probably weeks worth of scheduling and contract negotiations.

Young Sheldon has wrapped for the season, but I really hope they were able to get a picture with the young and older versions of the Cooper siblings together.

Luke Skywalker (played by Mark Hamill) was the main protagonist of the original Star Wars trilogy. The story was a hero's journey and Luke is the farm boy who gets launched into the big adventure.  There are many  Star Wars references on TBBT including references to Luke so you have heard his name even if you don't remember:

Quote

from 1.01

Sheldon: Do you think this possibility will be helped or hindered when she discovers your Luke Skywalker no-more-tears shampoo?

Leonard: It’s Darth Vader shampoo. (There is a knock on the door.) Luke Skywalker’s the conditioner.

Quote

from 2.05

Sheldon: Statistically, red cars are stopped by police far more often than any other colour. I don’t want any hassles with the fuzz.

Howard: Fine, what colour do you want?

Sheldon: You know the pale blue of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber, before it was digitally remastered?

 

Quote

from 2.23

Sheldon: Gentlemen, use your imagination. Innovate. Did Han Solo let Luke Skywalker freeze to death on the ice planet of Hoth? No. He cut open a tauntaun and used its internal body heat to warm him up.

There are others:

Quote

from 7.22

Penny: Sweetie, are you sure you don’t want to come with us to the funeral?

Sheldon: Oh, I appreciate the offer, but Arthur is gone and there’s nothing I can do about it. When Darth Vader struck down Obi-Wan, did Luke cry like a baby and go to his funeral?

Penny: No, he blew up the Death Star. Why do I know this?

Even if you can't remember Luke Skywalker you have likely heard of Darth Vader if you have been watching all the episodes of TBBT. We had the voice of Darth Vader in 7.14. Both of the Star Wars characters in that episode are closely realated to Luke Skywalker.

 

So now in season 11 we finally get to see Mark Hamill who played Luke in the original trilogy when he was young and in the recent Star Wars movies 40 years later when he is old. I was only 16 when I first saw the original movie and I'm 57 now. Star Wars have a big world wide following. So, head blown and I have not see the episode yet.

-----edit---
I have to add this because it is the best one (which I missed):

Quote

Sheldon: Why are you here?

Arthur: I don’t know. I was, I was hoping I was going to haunt my ex-wife.

Sheldon: I know why. You’ve come to me because you’re my Obi-Wan.

Arthur: I’m, I’m not, I’m not familiar with that. Is, is, is that an, an Internet?

Sheldon: Wow. Uh, you’re dead, so I’m going to let that slide. Obi-Wan Kenobi is a character from Star Wars. After his physical demise, he comes to Luke Skywalker as his mentor in spirit form.

So excited about all the casting news.  As others have mentioned, I am surprised that Meewma and Beverly do to appear appear on the list of characters returning.  How about Leslie Winkle, (She was at his birthday)  Alex, and Ramona (she was the reason Sheldon realized he wanted to get married)?  How about Tam? I am also hoping they find a way to bring Authur Jefferies and Sheldon's dad into the shamy wedding (perhaps, he sees them as Jedi ghosts at the ceremony).   I am thinking that writers may still have a few surprises with casting and the wedding itself.

You know it would be fitting to have Luke come to Sheldon as a force ghost rather than PP. It would not have been fitting before The Last Jedi. That would be extra special! (then the series can end -- unless of course they can get Daisy Ridley after ep 9).

The episode is only 20 minutes. How many more guest stars can there be?

Maybe Obi-Wan will show up with PP.

Obi-Wan appears as Alec Guinness and he is not available. Luke is now the mentor (and perhaps Yoda who could be done).

Wait a minute, MOH Amy kept telling people that Bernadette's wedding day was her special day. So that makes Amy's wedding day Penny's special day.:icon_cheesygrin:

It may be like others have said, and Amy will be at the reception saying, there's my aunt, cousin, and so on.
