Oh god help us. Hopefully we've seen the end of YS cast in TBBT.

Why does it matter ? 

Actually we have not seen any of that YS cast on TBBT. Almost had Annie Potts voice but it was cut. I thought we might get a crossover with flashbacks but that has not happened.

I think TBBT has helped give YS a good start. I enjoy seeing the two back to back. Perhaps YS can keep TBBT from getting too old for a while yet. 

Give it a lift....

Vizzini: Faster!
Fezzik: I thought I was going faster.
Vizzini: You were supposed to be this colossus! You were this great, legendary thing! And yet he gains!
Fezzik: Well, I'm carrying three people. And he's got only himself.
Vizzini: I do not accept excuses! I'm just going to have to find myself a new giant, that's all.
Fezzik: Don't say that, Vizzini. Please?

We tell our life's story through our own lens.

Leonard told his life story and it was confirmed by the addition of Beverly and Alfred.

Sheldon told his life story and it has begun to unravel by the appearance of George

I agree that we do tell our life's story through our own lens , but while TBBT canon seems to support Leonard's recollections, YS is, to a certain extent, disproving what adult Sheldon has said in TBBT about his childhood.

I don't know about Pretty in Pink, Never watched it and never intend to watch it. Star Wars, I went to the movies in San Francisco when it came out. Really enjoyed it as well as the next two. Didn't care too much for Episode 1, The Phantom Menace, 2 and 3 were enjoyable. So I enjoyed watching 5 out of the first 6 Star Wars movies. The new ones, I haven't seen and don't intend to see them.

In regards to Star Wars, I hated 1,2, and 3, liked the original trilogy (episodes 4,5, and 6) and so far I've liked episodes 7 and 8. Btw , I absolutely adored Rogue One , which should have been one of the prequels since it gives and explanation for a very important event: the somewhat "easy" destruction of the Death Star in the original trilogy.

We have known for a long time Sheldon views people differently and more critically than others.

from 5.10

Quote

Leonard: All right, but just for the record, I checked in with you to see how you’d feel about it.

Sheldon: Fine. The record shall so reflect. Now, getting back to the problem at hand, what to do with a washed-up experimental physicist.

Leonard: I am not washed-up.

Sheldon: Oh, Leonard. Lots of people love you and want to help you, but they can’t until you admit the problem.

Thats an example from TBBT. I am not sure it is apt, when talking about how they portray Sheldon as a boy. Yes Sheldon views ppl differently. But watching some of YS. I feel alot of the Critical experiences Sheldon apparently went through in his childhood. Now in the way it has been presented in YS. It makes alot of these traumas like his Parents getting divorced seem diminshed some what. So I think YS cannon does seem to disprove alot of what Sheldon said about his childhood.

Sheldon has shown that he's not real honest when it comes to him not getting what he wants

My point was you don't need to look to YS to see that Sheldon sees people differently than most everyone else. We already knew that.

If you maybe have a hit comedy on our hands do you go with the mean drunk character or the rather run of the mill character. Jmo but it's easy to pick.

Sure is. They go with the one acceptable to viewers. When the children grow into stroppy adolescents it will be time to call a halt to the production is my guess. That's if it's still running. When dark days are ahead I daresay they won't be wanting a comedy to morph into a gloomy drama. Time will tell.

Granted, I don't think we would have had the differrences between George Jr. and Sheldon's view of him if it weren't for YS. What are they gonna do in YS with George Sr's supposed cheating? Have the woman be a doctor checking him? Have his pants fall accidentally? And here was Sheldon accusing him of cheating and resenting him all this time...hilarious...

I just know I'm not really waiting for much of anything. Well have been hoping for some more nice Star Wars references since 2015.

Didn't we wait 8-9 years for that special moment? 

Actually I was doubtful it would actually happen.

It's early here in Germany and I found an interesting article to my first morning coffee. 🍵

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!
How I became an extra on The Big Bang Theory and my experience on set

The background report of an extra (background actor) as part of a BBT taping (The Monetary Insufficiency).

Take your time to read. :)

Thanks for the article @veejay, really interesting to read this report from the background actor.

Yeah, I had to laugh, even though it was rather sad.

"When it aired
After eagerly waiting to see the episode for weeks, I found out when the episode aired on April 26th, 2018 that they had decided to cut my part out! Now I know how Penny felt when her big break on NCIS was ruined. I was super bummed that night. But after a couple days of recovery, I remained grateful for having experienced this opportunity of a lifetime and having memories from it that I will forever cherish."

I wonder why they changed the scene from having all the men in it to having just Sheldon ? After all that trouble and expense too !  What a waste of time and money.

There are things in life that are more important than a damn movie,

JMO. but is there anyone else that is a Lenny fan feel slighted a little by Holland saying that the Shamy wedding is what we all have  waited for 8 yrs and it was a special moment and day for them.  Wasn't it supposed to be special for Lenny as well?  Didn't we wait 8-9 years for that special moment?  And what did we get  Just some wonderful vows and Sheldon distracting everyone from watching because of his selfish, self-centered attitude.  And also we had to endure a cliffhanger because of that ridiculous plotline of the infamous ship kiss. But they didn't dare create a cliffhanger in the Shamy wedding episode so not to take away from their story.  I know they had a redo wedding and it was a beautiful scene, but this was only because many fans were upset at the first one.

Well said. For the record, I for one haven't been waiting for 8-9 years for a shamy wedding.

The dichotomy between what Sheldon has said over the last 11 years and what we have been shown on YS to have  been the actual circumstances of his youth points to only one conclusion one many of us reached years ago despite his supposed inability to do it, Sheldon lies.

Any and all stories, memories or other facts he presents are slanted to his advantage and designed purely to excuse his actions and engender sympathy for him. Thus excusing to some extent his actions and using the sympathy card as a means to mitigate his actions and avoid being held to the behavioral standard society expects of the average person. It's a genius plan which has proven to work for him

So for over 10 years, we have believed what Sheldon has told us about his past to be true. Now because some different writers from a different shows tells a different story, you want to believe that! Sorry, but since I don't watch that "show" that you seem to take as gospel. I'm going to ignore that bull from "YS" and stay with what "My" favorite show has been telling me for over 10 years.
