[Spoilers] Season 12 Discussion Thread

Last year people knew the end might be coming and expected them to start wrapping more things up but they haven't done that as much as they should have.

Because they spent the whole season focusing on shamy's wedding and wedding planning. Good grief, what a waste of a season!

A better discussion might be as tensor pointed out viewership haven’t been this low since season 2. 39% compared to last season. Why?

Viewership of broadcast TV is down across the board.  It's not just TBBT.

Hear hear! (Not for the "in", for being tired of these "couple competitions")

But TBBT is further down percentage wise and thus total viewers.

Not only that it been advertised now as the final season.

Barely advertised as that. Tv adverts, couple of chat show appearances and a couple of interviews with a showrunner that get recycled elsewhere.

This show for a long time does a bare minimum of promotion when they could do so much more.

A multitude of reasons as usual, certainly not one sole reason why the drop.

JMO but there was no incentive to watch this season. Nothing for the average fan.

Perfect @bfm !  To quote e.e. cummings (who has a birthday on October 14, a good reason to read some of his poetry!)  "here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life...."  Leonard carries it.  He carries her heart in his heart.

 Awww!❤️

Because I've loved you since the moment we met.......gif

The thing is everyone in this forum is extremely biased. Except for a couple people who are here for the show, the rest at either shamy shippers who hate lenny, Lenny shippers who hate Shamy, or somewhere were they prefer one couple over the other. I personally love both, but I like Lenny a lot more and i know  my opinion would be biased too, each shipper protects its couple, it’s normal. To solve this argument there would have to be an impartial person, because if not shippers will always believe their ship is better (and both parts have reasons to believe it is)

I don't hate anyone anyone on the show.

I wasn’t referring to anyone in particular, just stating that from the messages I’ve read, there’s clearly two opposite ends colliding

Reading tons of posts about babies or not. No comment on my part. Also according to the TR. Leonard and Penny have decided that they don’t want any children.
If anybody is interested, they can drop Sheldon off ASAP.

The scene literally ends with him dragging Amy to their honeymoon suite on a whim. Not sure what more spontaneous he needs to be???

Also, yes, plenty of relationship/sex health advisors actually think scheduling sex is not a bad thing for a relationship. I kid you not.

When I was young, children used to speculate that parents had either given it up completely, being past it, or that they must 'do it' when we were at Sunday school on Sunday afternoons, or if dads didn't have to work on Saturday mornings 'it' happened then while children were at Saturday morning pictures. Decades later when old people were interviewed about family life in the 1950s and 60s, this turned out to be very much the case. Broken marriages were virtually unheard of.

Gee, another Shamy centric story.  Guess Leonard is happy, Amy has become his target of insults and demeaning value!

Hmm kind of what I guessed the issue with Amy as a scientist and Sheldon's wife would be. The Howard-Raj plot sounds kind of rehashed, Howard "the strong personality", yeah, got that... Doesn't sound too interesting.

It's called compromising.

IMO I don’t think Lenny’s going to have a accidental pregnancy.

lenny has been having sex for years and yet do not get pregnant. Why would it be any different now 

 

She's had a few scares. she only saved the first pregnancy test from Leonard. She didn't save them all.

The clips go from stupid Penny to serious Penny. Though the writing still stays consistently stupid.
