Thanks so much for sharing this, Martin! It was a sweet scene with an adorable touch from both couples. A nice homage to SW indeed. Love has conquered all in tbbt :icon_biggrin:

There seems to be potential for a big shift in TBBT but I wonder if it will be noticeable next year. How often will ther inlaws show up?

The in-laws are great.

All of them.

Totally agree. Back to back shows of Sheldon is too much for me.

Watch the NHL and NBA playoffs.  Sawx-Yanks.

Just as you think they can’t screw it up anymore, they top themselves.

No thank you, There are plenty of better things to watch other than those two boring sports and a show where the writers are trying to rewrite TBBT history.

Thank you so much for sharing!!

I can actually hear Hawking himself saying those words. I sooo wish this scene had made the final cut. But it's still canon, so it's fine. 

Glad to see Sheldon got an upgrade to his pocket watch.

For sure, not only did we miss out of a sweet and tender moment with Stephan Hawking, but missed out on a nice Lenny hug as well. Never get enough of them these days.

Probably his other pocket watch will go into the dresser drawer.

It was a sweet scene and I loved the hug but it was in character and said nothing new about any of the relationships.  Hopefully they find another opportunity to honor Hawking.  They could even do essentially the same scene in season 12, finding a place for presents / or someone suggests he take off his watch.it also had nothing to do with anything else and the characters didn’t need screen time.

They could use this at the beginning of the first episode of season 12 then time jump forward...

Well first off i thought the episode on a whole was nice , i'm going to say i'm happy for all the Shamy fans on this forum you got to see them get married and you'll get atleast a season of them being married on the show.


 Now onto my opinion of this season, as a Lenny fan i didn't think this season was any better or worse the the last three, i was left disappointed though.  This was made more so by the last three episodes two of which Lenny had no scenes and the last one they did but  didn't have and dialogue with each other . I  can't think of a single season where they didn't talk  for three episodes in a row  whilst in a relationship or at all for that matter . I know some of my fellow Lennies feel this season is better due to the fact that Leonard and Penny haven't had any arguments on the scale they had last season. And how the snarky mean comments between them especially from Penny have been vastly reduced, and we didn't  get any stupid jokes about how he wore her down or begged her . These are great and i was glad that we didn't get any of the arguments we've seen them have before same with the mean comments or stupid jokes about their relationship . However these positives for me are outweighed by my overall disappointment with things that where missing like the lack of anything i would consider a  Lenny main story plot or and plots we did get where little sub plots .  The fact we didn't get to see any beds scenes between them , yet the writers where able to write quite a few for the Shamy yet not even one for Lenny. But that was nothing compared to what to me was a reduction in affection and intimacy between them , compared to even last year it's been quite scarce. But my biggest issues are the fact that Leonard and Penny never hugged , the last season that they never shared a hug i think  was season 4 which say a lot, . However even this isn't  as bad as my shock at the fact that this was the first season of the show ever EVER! without Leonard and Penny sharing a kiss , it felt just wrong with that not happening. i have no idea why  this season they chose not have them share a kiss. Of course all of this is just my personal opinion of how i felt about this season , and i know alot of you will disagree and that's fine after all where all entitled to our views of  what we thought of  this season. 

 

Oh I don't know if this has been mentioned before , so if it has I apologise , Leonard & Penny met in the first episode of the show and got married in the first in the first episode of season nine. Sheldon & Amy met in the last episode of season three and got married in the last episode of season  eleven, so both couples  from meeting  to getting married took eight years . 

Very well said and I whole heartedly agree with every word. Now a days, I would so much rather read your wonderful stories than than watch the Sheldon Cooper Show. I keep watching thinking something nice for Lenny will appear and am disappointed every time. Well, there's always season 12, but that will probably be a disappointment as well. Here's to Season 12 being the end of The Sheldon Cooper Show.

I’m surprised they showed this.  Since they couldn’t fit it in last night, I would have shown the gift in 12.01, saying it got lost in the mail till then, and still had a Hawking tribute in the show.  I think the writers are getting lazy.

That was a lovely tribute to Stephen Hawking! Btw they couldn't have included this in 12.1 because by then it would be too late for a tribute. It was already a bit late-ish since he died two months ago.

I do think season 11 was much better than 8-10 due to the reasons you mentioned. There had also been some A plots, although very few. That said, I definitely see your point(s). Lenny seem to be more like a side note these days... There's SHELDON! There's SHAMY! Oh and also Lenny, Leonard and Penny... They mostly serve the writers to deliver punches here and there and to play with just a little bit every once in a (long) while...

I don’t watch either and all this talk of Sheldon narrating means I never will, sick to the back teeth of his voice in one show already.

I'm loving a hour of tbbt/ys. And there have been many weeks where I enjoyed the YS episode more.

From deadline.com:

‘Big Bang Theory’ Ratings Buck TV Trend; Beat 2017 Finale With ‘Star Wars’ Wedding

Quote

We all knew the wedding between Jim Parson’s Sheldon and Mayim Bialik’s Amy was going to happen but there were a few surprises last night on the Season 11 finale of The Big Bang Theory (2.8/14) with Star Wars’ Mark Hamill as himself plus the star power of Laurie Metcalf, magician Teller, Kathy Bates and Jerry O’Connell in the room too.

In a season that has seen some series lows for the still staggering popular science geek sitcom, last night’s “The Bow Tie Asymmetry” episode was unsurprisingly 22% from the fast affiliates of last week among adults 18-49 to hit a three-month high. The top-rated show of the night by far as usual, the nuptials themed BBT snagged 15 million sets of eyeballs to give a finale heavy CBS an overall primetime win of 1.6/6 in the key demo and 9.2 million viewers in total over the night.

Sure they could. It's a TV show. I'm sure that the writers would/could have come up with a way.

That would have been a great tag! A great tribute and it had such an adorable Lenny moment, with Penny running to support her husband instead of mocking him as Molaro's Penny might have done...
