Funny episode tonight.  A-plot was the Shamy Nobel laureate situation. No resolution tonight on that front. They're still competing with Dr. Pemberton (Sean Astin) and Dr. Campbell (Kal Penn) for the nomination. They (Pemberton & Campbell) have been doing a publicity tour for support. They even went on Ellen to sing a viral song about physics that they'd posted on YouTube lol. Siebert planned a reception for Sheldon & Amy to drum up some support from other Nobel laureates, but none of them wanted to come because Sheldon has insulted all of them at one point or another. Leonard and Penny eventually convinced them all to come to the reception. 

B-plot was Howard and Bernie. Basically she wanted to make a nighttime story book for the kids about how Howard overcame his fears in space, called The Frightened Little Astronaut. And she wanted Stuart to illustrate it. Howard wasn't feeling it, but eventually he agreed to it, though he kept trying to change details to make himself look better.

Lots of VIPs there tonight. Mayim's Mom as well as Jim's Mom were in the front row. The hype guy jokingly teased Jim's Mom about something (he didn't recognize her at first), then spent the rest of the night apologizing to her lol. Iain Armitage (Young Sheldon) was there too. He was hanging with Jim in Sheldon's spot after the show. You can tell the cast is savoring these last few eps. Lots of joking around and laughing, lots of hugs after the curtain call. When they came to speak to the audience, it seemed like Kaley was on the verge of tears.

I'll do a more detailed taping report tomorrow.

Thank you so much Trinabeana, it is very much appreciated.

I haven't even finished my morning coffee so no, I'm not interested.

I have to use redbull.

I was just pointing out where the idea came from in the first place cause ever since this plot came up I've seen people accuse the writers to make it all up without their physics consultant even though he's the one who came up with that in the first place. So there.

Oh, I agree with you. I lump him with the writers as he writes the scientific stuff.  So there.😜

hows the little one doing?

I didn't mean you specifically.

Keeping me busy during the day and up at night. lol He's at an age when the sleeping schedule changes again so that's causing a bit of trouble for him to adjust.

But otherwise he's doing fine. He's a cutie pie!

They should be proud of their achievement. They have excelled in their field. Well done them (even though I didn’t get my druthers.)

Pleased for you that you got to see it and well done you for reporting.

The only screw up that could affect their eligibility for the Nobel, would be if  their results are invalid (something like the Chinese team that verified his previous super heavy isotope idea, by faking results).  The down side for that, would be it would leave super-asymmetry without any experimental proof, and thus not eligible for a Nobel.

That would be a perfect was to get out of it.

No, can't blame Shamy for this, claiming science that is incorrect  isn't the character's fault.

I agree with this.

Finally, Shamy will get their much deserved nomination.

Guess we know what the main plot of the finale (or pre-finale) episode will be about.
My guess is that the other two scientist (played by Kal and Sean) screw up somewhere, and will be kicked off the nomination.

Maybe not. Hopefully it's all just a Cooper dream!

Yeah, it would.  I hadn’t thought about it like that, but you’re right.  Whether or not they do use it that way, we’ll have to wait and see.

I agree with this.

Cool. I’m glad we can agree on some things.

Oh, I know. But I’m usually adamant about supplying evidence or reasoning for a claim, and since I made a claim, that there is no actual science that supports super-asymmetry, I felt I better provide the support I demand of others.  I have gotten a PM about it, so there was “some” interest.  Although, I’ll concede that anyone here isn’t an “average” viewer.

Well, if it's a Nobel episode, that would NOT be a filler. It would be advancing the Shamy arc.

But what I read in the taping report there is no advancement in that storyline. And the Howard storyline is not adding anything. Seems weird though to have two kid related episodes in a row.

Howardette are possibly like Lenny once they got married - their story is over. Longest married, got two kids. As a couple what else can the writers do with them as a couple to advance their story? Any Howardette story is going to be filler now, I would think. Bernie is getting career stories with Penny and Howard is probably just do boy stuff with the boys. I think they’re done. But they still have to appear in the show so fill away.

Yes, thank you. It is  much appreciated. You did very, very well. If it's a funny episode, that's a good thing.

I am tremendously disappointed that Raj/Anu have not gotten a plot in forever, if there was a Season 13/14 maybe they'd actually give Raj's climax some more weight 

How many random Howardette plots is this now that doesn't change anything about their life? Just such obvious favoritism

Nope! To me, it seems as though they've given up on Raj's attempts of being in a relationship!

Hehehehehe, everyone is smiling, except for Jim and Johnny.  

To be honest, Johnny rarely smiles in group pictures and Jim looks like he needs to use the men's room...lol
