Probably completely inaccurate and a fabrication. But rumours swirling of a Season 13 return. I laughed out loud when I read this piece. What a hack job. But I don’t know. Turns out it’s an old quote from Cendrowski. About not closing the door to a return “That’s not to say that there may not be something down the line, but I don’t think anyone wanted to jump into the next season and spin someone off immediately." So ignore me. I doubt their we’ll be any kinda reboot or spin-off for a long time.

I totally agree. I'm thinking those rumors are just wishful thinking!

If it's Star Trek, of course they're watching it.

Something  still nags at me from the final episodes.

Amy is gainfully employed, married to a man who is in a similar or even higher position. She drives an ordinary middle-of-the-range car and lives with her husband in an apartment hardly bigger than a bedsit.  She never mentions having credit card debt like Penny. Shamy's  only visible extravagance is eating out or buying takeaways perhaps more than low-to-middle income earners would. Considering they don't have much of a kitchen to speak of and they work a lot at home in a small space, I don't blame them.  Amy doesn't think twice about going to Vegas so she obviously has enough spending money to call on at short notice.

Even without the Nobel Prize she clearly goes to the hairdresser routinely - note her hair doesn't get longer or have split ends and occasionally it is nicely curled - and despite liking a bargain she does buy new clothes. Frumpiness doesn't affect the price. She also changes her glasses. These are normal things most of us pay out for.  You've got to be poor not to be able to afford them.

I know California is an expensive place to live.  Academics aren't vastly rich either and in their early employed years might have their own study debts to pay off. However, high-flyers like Shamy are surely  better paid than a good many other people who get their hair done regularly and keep themselves decently clad.

So, why would Amy's first reaction to Raj's suggestion of changing her hairstyle and buying a new outfit be to wonder if she could afford it ?  It's not out of the ordinary for her. Come to that, why would Sheldon's response to his Nobel money be to consider buying new trousers ? Have they had some recent enormous expense ? Is Sheldon still trying to raise those millions to prove his theory?

What is the explanation ? In the absence of knowledge of what they're all doing now, it's bothering me, taking up room in the  not-yet-discarded TBBT  space in my brain.

I think the last thing they think about is money--they are so focused on science. This was brought up in the last YS. Georgie was interested in making money and Sheldon explained he just doesn't care about it. I feel they both don't give money much thought.

That's very true.  There was a time Sheldon didn't bother putting his salary cheques in the bank and was happy to lend money to Penny for as long as she needed it. Amy told Bernadette she cared more about her work than earning a high income from a commercial firm. However, everybody has to think about affordability. Even Sheldon once said he'd live alone if he could afford it, although that would have been when they were all at the beginning of their careers. He liked the idea of being Raj's financial manager when 'Richie Rich (I don't know who that is ) rich' Raj fell on hard times.

What struck me as odd was Amy's response of 'Sounds expensive' when she obviously normally spent money on her hair and clothes anyway,which are in the range of affordability for her income bracket.

I believe also that because of Sheldon's OCD and his strict rigid organized schedule he does not need or care to spend money lavishly and keeps his money as you have mentioned with his uncashed salary checks

Sheldon never cared about money when he bought something as long as his bills were paid first. I can think of the sword he and Leonard bought or the thousand dollars on the cheap Aquaman statue and couple hundred on the water gun in Episode 7/2. But that's not just Sheldon. Raj, Howard and Leonard were equally guilty in those endeavors as well.

I think that was just a segue from the writers for Raj to explain the award money and his hopes for her to buy him things too. (She's also not used to having lots of money, they don't seem to make a whole lot. One episode Amy told Penny she made more than her)

That I don't remember and but it's not a big thing. All I remember is Penny bragging that she made twice as much as Leonard and Bernadette saying she made way more than Howard.

The one when they went out after Bernie had a baby but the club they were going to had turned into a bookstore so they sat in the car in the parking lot and talked.

That sounds like a good explanation. Thank you.

If there's anything left after buying all those plane tickets and paying for luxury hotel suites, I expect they'll buy a house so they have room for a family. I hope grown-up Sheldon tells us when narrating Young Sheldon.

I'm thinking Howardette's neighbours might move again and Shamy could buy the house. Since Sheldon is familiar with the layout of the rooms and the stairs, it wouldn't be too big a change for him to cope with.

Okay. I  sort of remember the episode, but not the conversation. My memory kind of stinks right now.

Same here. I've tried The Conners but it's a bit too serious and sordid to get me hooked. The interesting thing is, we saw some of the adults when they were children and it's the same cast playing them, now grown up. The adults then are older but not greatly changed. The new cast members are children. Some of the cast members have been in TBBT - I recognise at least four.

Living Biblically looked as though it had potential as an idea, and contained some of the other two casts, but it didn't click and got what the US sites call 'canceled'. I found it hard to get into. The episodes were disjointed and to me it felt as though I was in a church hall watching very under-rehearsed amateur actors delivering their lines hoping for comic effect.

So,when it comes to sitting up into the early hours waiting for somebody to upload an American show, YS is the one I look forward to. I am getting fed up of watching repeats of TBBT on TV. At least at the end of YS we  sometimes get a hint of what's going on with our gang although we can't see them.

I haven't watched the Connors, the previews do not appeal to me though I do like the people. Maybe some day I'll give it a try. Plus I do not have cable and can't get any channels. I saw Living Biblically at someone's house and couldn't get into it--felt I wasn't missing anything.

I'm always happy watching YS-- they are so well done and I love the way the 2 shows are related so deeply even though there are no BBT actors starring in it.

I have to admit I have to watch at least one episode of BBT a day (I own them on DVD)

Personally, I don't watch The Conners or YS. All I've seen of those shows are the commercials. I don't watch YS because lt's different from what we've learned, from Sheldon himself, about his childhood. But, that's just me. I'm sure others will disagree and I'm good with that.

Thanks. I've never heard of Harvey comics. The comics of my childhood contained many stories and features in any one edition. There were none devoted to a single character, apart from the American ones we could occasionally get but with some difficulty - Superboy, Superman, Batman etc.

I guess we're spoiled here in the States as we can get comics of just about every single character. Not that I read comics anymore.
