Ghostbusters is not a children's film.

Yes, Howard has a Beatle haircut and a long nose. Ringo's also old enough to play a character who could have got away with spinning two families. He'd have been around forty when Howard was born.  He's on the short side although not a diddy as Howard.

Ghostbusters is a hilarious comedy that is wonderful for all ages to see. You don't need to be a kid to enjoy it. At 48 I still enjoy watching it. It is a comedy classic.

Do you think we will meet Howard's dad? 

Aha, funny you should mention this. 

I've been hoping to meet Howard's Dad for years, especially after that wonderful letter in closet episode in S.6, but I knew this would be a loooooong shot. 

BUT, I remembered reading this in some interviews here:

From TV Line

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Veronica Mars, Big Bang, Supernatural, Gotham, Psych, To All the Boys, TWD and More

Question: Big Bang Theory is ending soon and we still haven’t met Howard’s father. Any word on him possibly showing up? —Dina
Ausiello: Well, we did ask show boss Chuck Lorre if viewers would meet any unseen relatives before the hitcom fades to black, and he hedged, “Not that I can talk about.”Hmm…. Elsewhere on the Big Bang front, I hear Sheldon and Amy will soon be spending some time in a sensory deprivation lab, and I’m already predicting this will be one of my favorite episodes of the season. 

This got me thinking. I don't know about others, but I really can feel TPTB are LOVING Howardette this season, some people claimed that "Howardette's story is over", but clearly, TPTB don't think so. They wrote a lot of filler  - "interesting yet don't change their life one bit" -  plots for them, when they should've spent the time on Raj and Anu, or someone else.

So, now, with this love that TPTB have been giving to Howardette, I kinda expect to see his Dad in the finale.  LOL.

I have always wondered about him and why he took off. What happened to his half brother? I would like to know about this. I liked his brother when we did meet him, he seemed a lot like Howard.

Agree with every word.

That was my strategy, Stephen Issac for the boy, for the girl Lizzie (Elizabeth) Mary - Elizabeth is after nobel laureate Elizabeth Blackburn, a biologist, with the backstory being that Amy agreed to Stephen Issac and to the middle name Mary so she got to choose their daughter's first name.

What about Georgie after his dad?

I came up with the names about 2-3 years ago (I came up with the story long before I started writing and published about 6 months after I started writing). At the time all we knew was Sheldon did not appreciate his dad at all, there was no mention of him missing his dad or his dad being a good father. It was only after YS that we got these sort of things. So, at the time Sheldon naming his son after his dad didn't even occur to me.

I love your stories...

I was thinking Georgie for a son he has a later in life. I agree I would have never considered it a few years back. Georgia for a baby girl.

Thanks, didn't know you read them :)

I saw a fic I think some months ago where the son's name was Stephen/Issac George. I don't remember which one...

Ringo...because of the Beatles haircut Howard has? Rick Moranis was in Ghostbusters. He was the short nerdy accountant. 

My kids loved Rick Moranis in Honey I Shrunk The Kids and Spaceballs.

Sheldon's father on YS has another five years to live. Sheldon has time yet to see a bad side of George and not want to name anything but the noisy neighbourhood cat after him.

But on TBBT he has softened his stance on how he remembers his dad. So he would zigzag on this, I guess.

Of the three, only Honey I Shrunk the Kids would be considered a kid's movie, I think. But I don't think would be interested in playing Howard's dad. I would be surprised to see him. But I'm really disappointed that they never did more with the brother.

Did anyone get the TV Guide It's actually better than I thought It included the whole cast in the interview and pictures of the whole cast as well. Very bittersweet It sounds like they're ready to move on but the same time very sad it's ending and they won't be working with each other anymore.

Parsons actually said he was terrified when he worked with Metcalfe. I forget his actual words but he was worried he'd be considered a (acting) fraud working beside her.

Hello Shamy fellows!

I have just watched 12x17 and I had to share here some thoughts about it. I know many might disagree about the Sheldon experiences with Holowitz children  but I thought they fitted with Sheldon character and at same time they seemed realistic for a potencial Sheldon father role in upcoming episodes. 

By the way I have read it may not be possible Amy being pregnant at moment because if it was true, she would tell it to Sheldon by the end of the episode...

However that mix of  mischivious and melted look from Amy to her husband... I m not sure at all she wasnt, hehe. Maybe I am wrong but I loved the feeling of my Shamy could become parents sooner than I thought they could...couldnt help my Shamy heart! :icon_cheesygrin: :wub:

Amy doesn't want Sheldon to be one of those men (if they still exist ) who take no interest in their children until they are walking around saying, 'Daddy' and showing an interest in trains. She won't want to be landed with all the work.  Practising on someone else's children first is very much typical of both of them. Sneaky but Shamy. 'Me likey'.

I agree, it was very them.  Very in character.

I'd always thought that Sheldon would love to schedule the baby's day and write detailed bowel movement charts though. LOL

Wasn't Sheldon tracking her cycle in S10? I doubt she could hide a pregnancy from him unless the writers forgot about it (which is possible, let's be real).

@April...agreed! And I can see a Cooper Baby actually demanding a shedule. It's in the DNA. :D

Or the Nobel price thing might make Sheldon so foccused on it that he could distract himself a bit. We are close to the show end, imo everything is possible, even the maddest theories! :wink:

Yeah, Shamy are so wrapped up in the Nobel drama that they could easily overlook that Amy missed a period.

I'm sure he would, but if Amy was the one he intended to follow the schedule she'd soon put her foot down. I can see her going off with the others for a day, leaving him with the schedule to see how he gets on with it.
