Diddn't they kinda do that in The Table Polirisation was it? Or was it The Friendship Turbelance? Stuart showed up end of the episode, and no none showed up lol. But yeah i can see time jumps. And being pre shot, they can make the characters look older with makeup etc. 

They don't have to time jump big.  They could go 5 or so years into the future.  Kids, families, careers awards, etc.  They could cover it all without aging them too much, but answering many questions.

They don't have to make them look that much older. It depends on how far they jump, of course, but I'm not seeing a twenty year jump or anything like that.

Five to eight years and Sheldon is sporting a dog collar, having seen the light. He's vicar of a parish and chaplain to a small home for twelve orphaned children with whom his own three mix for daily experiments. Everybody else is married to their current partner and Ramona has married Big Dave. Kripke is the only one still alone. Serve him right for sneaking up with a practical proof of super asymmetry and stealing the Nobel.

No one in the Midwest that I know of calls them Vicars. I thought that was a British thing. If I'm wrong I'm wrong.

Vicar's an Anglican term mainly. It's used all over the world, not just in Britain. 'Rector' historically AFAIK  is rural British only.  They could be in any country I suppose. He likes rules and a career structure so I thought he'd choose that Church rather than Baptist.

That is an idea I have always liked Leonard wakes up and the whole show was a dream, since Leonards "Our Babies well be smart and beautiful". I am not saying I Want that to happen. But if the show want to go for shock value.....

I read in an interview at some point they would not do that ending because it has been done before...besides if Lenny do not have kids why harken back to that line? I honestly don't think that line was a telling of the future but out of lust for the hot girl he literally met two minutes earlier.

Probably already aware of this. But Kaley says the series final we’ll be pre taped. So they then can do a audience taping. Because it well be emotional. I think Friends did that too. 

I am figuring the plots for the series final, that well be roughly 33 mins. I am betting Sheldon wins the Nobel Prize, regardless of how flimsy the writing has been, or the accuracy with the science has been. As for Lenny I am betting Penny well either give birth, or a job offer and they move.

I am not sure about Raj or Howard and Bernadette. Raj is the one character who has not been developed that well. I am hoping they fix the elevator in the finalie. I always wanted them to go into it when they are leaving the Apt for the final time, and it breaks down LOL. Then their are a few flash forwards. 

somehow sad. OK, for VIPs it doesn't matter, they arrive 10 min before taping, have a nice viewing of the episode and that's it, but just imagine someone with standby ticket, camping there presumably for the whole night, getting in just to see the pre-taped scenes. and I wouldn't be surprised if they leave out the real "big thing" (I still expect Chuck to kinda drop a piano on someone) and show it only as a TV surprise when it finally gets aired!

I don't think they'd want to risk potential worldwide sales and US syndication. Future audiences of classic TV wouldn't be interested in following a story they knew would turn out not to have really happened.

To be fair though, it's a fictional TV show so by definition the story didn't really happen. But they said they won't do it because it has been done before and I agree with that reasoning  (look at that, there's something I agree with the writers about!)

I don't think anyone will a standby ticket will get in at all from here on out. I may be wrong, but that's my gut feeling from what I'm hearing. I wouldn't even count on it if I had a regular ticket from now on.

Which I think is kind of disappointing, without the fans they wouldn't have gone on as long as they did.  If I was Chuck I would want to make sure as many fans who made the effort to travel all that way in some cases got a chance to see a taping before it ends.

But money is money and there are also perks in contracts.

This is what the google dictionary says:

Quote
vic·ar
/ˈvikər/
noun
noun: vicar; plural noun: vicars
  1. (in the Roman Catholic Church) a representative or deputy of a bishop.

    • (in the Episcopal Church) a member of the clergy in charge of a chapel.

    • (in the Church of England) an incumbent of a parish where tithes formerly passed to a chapter or religious house or layman.

    • (in other Anglican Churches) a member of the clergy deputizing for another.

That one is a rector LOL

Don't know if the other definitions are right. They may fit American churches. I only know some American priests on Church of England websites I've talked to have been vicars but they were on the East coast. Perhaps it varies further west. The Wesleys (priests  who set up the Methodist churches in the US)  had been vicars of British parishes.

Well to be fair they did it in Roseanne. As far as future syndication. I agree, like I Said I doubt they would do that. But its the case of, they either want to have a memorable finalie (regardless of what your defintion of memorable is) or a safe finalie. Considering unlike say Friends, most of the long running storylines have been finalized. Lenny's Love Story, Sheldon Nobel Prize. Read an interesting article, on how they kinda spoiled the finalie in Season 7 with that Psychic. IN regards to Sheldon winning the Nobel Prize. Point is their well probably be little surprise. It is like in Breaking Bad, when they revealed Heisenberg before the finalie.
