I'm guessing that we'll get an episode about Shamy's Nobel prize nomination.

Excuse me while I vomit.

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 for the report. hope you had a good time. 

Once again Lenny saves the day

They should get a Nobel for friendship. That they help others is one of my favorite traits about them.

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.

Maybe there will be a third Howardette kid in the finale?

Oh god I hope not! The second one wasn't needed. They could have written around her pregnancy.

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.

Yep I Think Franchise Fatigue has hit TBBT hard. It is like in Friends when they broke up Ross and Rachel. They had too, because how else well the characters grow? I think same can be said with Lenny. Once they got married, where else do you go? That is why I Would of preferred they got married in the final episode. But it is what it is.

Mayim did suggest they might end the series with all three women pregnant. She didn't say which three, but suppose Howie's vasectomy failed ?

I don't think a story is over when a couple gets married. There's lots of comedy still to tap. What about I love Lucy, Terry and June, The Larkins, The Good Life, Till Death Us Do Part/All in the Family, As Time Goes By, Frasier,Goodnight Sweetheart, Marriage Lines, George and Mildred, Mad About You and Roseanne ? Not to mention Young Sheldon. Personally, I find Shamy funnier than ever. I didn't find some aspects of their relationship pre Sheldon's 9.07 spockiphany at all amusing.

I don’t think the story SHOULD be over after marriage either - but many would say the writers do!

Howard did have a vasectomy and I don't want them to go into a failed vasectomy plot at this point. I just don't. I never wanted any kids and I certainly don't want a third one from him.

I do believe those can be reversed. But I was told it is a painful procedure, which eliminates Howard!

The only plot for them now is whether or not Penny gets pregnant or Leonard gets a promotion in work.........what else could they create?

I'm sure intelligent writers could come up with something interesting for Lenny if they wanted to write them. They were too lazy and too focused on the Shamy to really care about writing anything interesting for Lenny!

There are other possible plots. We'll never see them as the writers are wasting episodes on Shamy's possible Nobel!

I think more of the actual problem is the other storylines. It’s been told to the viewers that we won’t see the kids which is okay but discussions about them IMO is equally as bad. An occasional mention is fine but the last two weeks there have been storylines about them

I wasn't thinking about baby story lines per se. Your statement about the couple of  weeks having baby story lines is spot on accurate. But I feel they can come up with better babyless story lines!

They have no trouble writing for H/B.

Job transfer, promotion, Leonard was secretly working on his book and submitted it to be published, purchasing a loft in the city...

I think what might happen with the Nobel Prize plot, is that Leonard may work with Shamey an the three of them get the prize. In earlier episode it was said only three could get it and the other two are experimental physicists like Leonard.

Lenny could go to Oslo, Norway and get the Nobel peace prize. :icon_cheesygrin:
