Yeah, I guess the warning came too late and to the wrong recipient.  😫

Please no more baby storylines. For anyone. Boring. I wish to see more group episodes. I loved the Halloween episode and the Paintball episode. Thank God for Dungeons and Dragons and Wil and Shatner.

'Big Bang Theory' Boss Promises 'Emotional' Series Finale, Addresses Those Spinoff & Reboot Rumors (Exclusive)

...“We write everything in order and we’re writing episode 19 right now and [the finale] is episode 24. We’re shooting 17, writing 19, so it’ll still be a few more weeks away before we get to that.”

“But we know what the finale will be. We’ve known what the big pieces are for a while, but now we know what the smaller pieces are, as well, and what we’re driving towards,” he continued. “We have it worked out and we’re excited and nervous and, like everybody who’s watching, we love these characters so much and we want to give them a send off that they deserve.”...

more on etonline.com

“I hope they’re prepared to laugh, I hope they’re prepared to be sad and to be nostalgic and to have to, at some point, say goodbye,” he said. “We don’t want to just have a fan-service finale that’s only upbeat, but we love these characters and we all wish them the best and want the best for them.” 

I will be sad to see them go. But I am ready...

I think they hit the sad for most Lenny fans 9 episodes early

@Mario D. prediction was just spot on, really awesome.

Thanks   I hope the trend continues and we see several more Lenny plotlines.  Besides the baby plotline would love to see Leonard advance in his job: he gets tenure, or a professorship, or maybe even Physics chairmanship to end the show.

My guess is only in fan fiction.

Tuesday taping has Penny and Bernadette fighting at a convention. Could something be happening with Penny’s job?

The episode, which finds Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Penny butting heads at a pharmaceutical convention and Amy (Mayim Bialik) trying to manipulate Sheldon (Jim Parsons) into wanting kids, was spread across several sets on the vast soundstage.

I deleted what I wrote here not wanting to ruin it to other people.

I do not like where the show is going and I think it is time for me to stop watching and maybe leave the forum. This is not for me.

So we suffered 15 episodes to end up with this... wow, I had no idea these writers are so cruel

Why is this surprising anyone? They said on Young Sheldon that Sheldon has kids and they said on TBBT that Penny doesn't want kids. She could change her mind of course, and they could both be pregnant in the finale but I'm just not getting that vibe. Since they said these things point blank I'm just not feeling it.  No one can say they weren't warned about this. I'm glad because it probably means I won't have to watch any more boring pregnancy storylines.

I'm with you. Once again I thought I had the lowest expectations and they managed to upset me terribly again. I can't believe this. To me this feels just cruel. It almost feels intentional, against fans who wanted Lenny to have kids. I better stop writing now before it becomes ugly, I don't want to ruin it for those who enjoy the show, this is just how I feel. Maybe it's time for me to stop watching.

I actually take this as a positive. I undetstand this sound warped but let me explain. In theory this keeps the pregnancy discussion going on. I find it hard to believe Lenny is not going to be involved in this Shamy discussion. I also never bought that Penny job as Pharmacy rep is going to last till May. JMO I think that is the ultimate reason Penny doesn’t want kids. I’m not saying it’s the only factor but the biggest factor.

These preview pics of Penny seducing Leonard in blue underwear are charming, but let's remember that Penny's great sex appeal comes mainly from KC's acting, not just from flashing the flesh (altho there's nothing wrong with that).

I just noticed this. Personally I didn't like her dressing like that to sabotage him when they should have just talked it out. I know they were going for funny, but it wasn't funny to me. It was cringe worthy to me. As for her acting, as far as I'm concerned she's a perfectly adequate television sitcom actress, not Katharine Hepburn.

Well, Penny will be away from the discussion as she has her own plot with Bernadette so that doesn't really work out. I'd also hate it if somehow her job falls through and then she wants a baby cause... she has nothing else to do???

This is not surprising, just sad. They could’ve stopped with Lenny’s kids issue in 12x03, but no, they kept raising it in those weird plots and giving the fans hope (I actually thought Zack’s plot would change Penny’s mind or at least let her explain why she decided not to have kids).

And now, after all this, what do we get? Probably Lenny still standing behind their kitchen island, observing everyone else having families, Nobel Prizes, great career achievements, etc.

I might be the only one but I do not see the Nobel working out. I hope not anyway.

We know Shamy will have children, why do we need to see them getting there?

TBQH with YS already saying they'll have kids and the ongoing Nobel plot I kinda expected that they'd leave the Shamy babies for some vague time after the show. I'm not even mad at the prospect as such - the wording of the spoiler blip is bothering me more than anything. (Though that is probably just a flawed write up with a poor choice of words.)

I agree, she a decent TV Sitcom actress but she no Katharine Hepburn or Mary Tyler Moore!

I do agree with your whole post thought. that was probably my least favorite scene from last night.

I for one thought they'd have the decency not to rub it in. We know Shamy will have children, why do we need to see them getting there, while some of us who really wanted Lenny children are upset about what's going on with them?

Who says you are going to see them getting there? All we as viewers know is they have kids at some point in the future. To me this does not mean within the next weeks. I think that will not be seen. I hope it won't be seen.
