I can't see that this time. I do wish we had even a tiny taping report to tell us what pans out. I can imagine there'll have been various scenes tried out for this one that we won't get to see. Amy's going to need somewhere to go to cool down and process whatever it is that Sheldon's done to interfere with her project and career. They haven't even got a spare room. How far is it to Big Bear where the cabins are ?

He’ll probably just move back into his own room across the hall.

I just watched The Tam Turbulence online. Is this a comedy? Maybe someone should tell the writers, because I can honestly say that I didn't laugh once. I can assure you that I did watch the episode with an open mind, because given the current state of affairs I didn't have any kind of expectations. What seems amazing to me is that even that being the case, I was still disappointed.

I could be wrong but I believe that the episodes that have aired so far were written before they decided to end the show.  

20 more to go and we need to see where they take it.

Hoping it lives up to the hype

I had a few giggles with Penny, Bernadette and Anu.

Bad writing is bad writing no matter when the show  was ending.

Even if Holland told journalists that the writers were planning this season as it were the last, I guess he and the writing team had the strong suspicion it could not be the case, hence they penned the beginning of the season the way they did (which was rather unimpressive to me). But the point is they knew it was the last season only one week after they started filming, so I hope they don't shoot all 7/8 episodes they had already written (they were at Episode 5 before SDCC, so I imagine they at least sketched another couple of them in August) as they were thought over the summer. They should think more to evolve the main stories and less to write filler episodes and have different guest stars. I don't need each and every YS character on TBBT. TBH, this has making me hate YS! Also, I get the fact the writers might want their most beloved guest star to come back for a last performance, but this shouldn't be done at the expense of the main characters...

They certainly were the best part of this episode.

Eww. They'll never allow it. Amy will phone the cabin park and book an empty one for the weekend and get some fresh air.

Yes  I believe Holland said they had written 6 or 7 episodes before the announcement.  So that would mean that the Lenny baby issue was written already and they probably would have dropped it without any resolution as they do with so many other plotlines. But now with this the final season they are forced to come up with a reasonable conclusion.

Reasonable to them!

It's still a no win for them come Season 12...

If Sheldon is a jerk, he's always been a jerk and hasn't learned anything.

If Sheldon isn't a jerk, they have changed him to much.

Jim was smart to call it quits and end this.

Sheldon has been a jerk since the pilot. So irregardless of character growth. This has never changed.

Penny's hair is a mess. It's time she did something about it. Were I a doctor I would not buy medicine from this untidy-looking woman. Whatever happened to the neat haircut and smart business clothes of two or three years ago ?

You mean the short hair cut Penny? I am just thrilled her hair is long again. This to me is the true Penny. Messy, independent, and free spirited.

So they already had 7-8 written, but it's clear they made small edits to a few of them to contextualize a final season feel (those weird Tam inclusions into famous moments from show's history) and that still fell flat.

The point is, when we get to episode 9, don't expect it to magically feel epic.

It will be business as usual, except now maybe the execution of Anu will suddenly be changed if she was meant to be another Raj disaster before Raj would have found the one in either Season 13/Season 14/Season 67.

I agree. He is my hero for having done that. IMO these last few seasons have been crap (with a few exceptions), and I'm happy the show's ending. If I really think about it, the only reason I'm watching (online) is because of my misplaced loyalty to a show that was great for its first 6 1/2 seasons.
