Season 12 Chit Chat Thread

It's normal. Shows often go from September/October to May because during Summer, more people are not watching TV ^^

I know that's how it works, it just seems so inflexible in the US. Superstore is airing 2 episodes a week for two weeks (they had a super long winter hiatus, IIRC December to March), that's just weird, why not just go on to the end of May, or, God forbid, first week of June? I guess that's also a cultural thing, Israelis are much more lax (in both a positive and a negative way).

A little trivia: The Big Bang Theory has been on the air during three presidencies. Not many sitcoms can say that (Two and Half Men which also lasted 12 seasons was on the air during two presidencies.) , Bush was still in office when the show premiered. in 2007. 

However, Queen Elizabeth II  still reigns as she has since  I Love Lucy was on the air.

Thanks for the info!  :sungum:

And Westworld S3 in 2020. 

Not sure what sitcoms are pending that will engage me positively or otherwise for 12 seasons. This one might be the unicorn. And Lordy, in another 12 years would I even have the capability to track what happened 12 years prior.

I can say that this one, even though at times being broadly ordinary, did manage to be particularly special.  Not that I’ve bought a copy since s6. 

Question: does the finale make season 12 purchase-worthy? I’ve not yet seen it.

Well not to me. I have not purchased a DVD in years and never a tv series. I don't need the clutter.

Well, you get to see Leonard and Penny talk about Penny being pregnant.  That's almost enough right there.   Although, truth be told, you can find all of the scenes, about the pregnancy,  on you tube already.   If you get the whole season, you have to contend with 12-03 and Penny not wanting kids, and the bizarre donation plot.

I would have bought it no matter what just to have the whole set.

I'm just waiting for the Good Doctor to come back. That's the only show I regularly watched last year besides TBBT.

Hmm. It’s funny, knowing. The experience is not the same, is it. And for everything like this, that maybe you discover after the event, like say The Bridge (Bron/Broen) or DCI Banks, or whatever, has the history out there, the spoiler, the analysis, the reveal. It’s easy to find out what happens. I’m not sure that’s wise.

But, and Rick we have both written about The Roommate Transmogrification, and that sometimes the experience of the shock unheralded is rewarding, even though it disconcerts. I still think that was some of their best, where they went big, unexpectedly. I’m not sure how I would have received news in advance of Raj and Penny waking up together. I still remember when I saw it thinking “wow, how are they going to untangle that”. And, given that they did resolve that pickle, and considering the genre, I was pretty sure they’d aim for a comforting resolution to the L/P quandary, despite the ridiculous donation digression I have heard about. I believe I am on record saying Penny not wanting kids was likely a feint, though I complained. They could have even finished with her pregnant and not telling Leonard, but we’d have known. And that may have been enough.

Anyway, I think I’ll look for the Blu-Ray, on discount. I know I’ll probably lose the DVR copy eventually, whenever they broadcast it. Seasons 7-11 though, I’m not planning on collecting. It’ll loop for years on TV. But maybe I should experience S12 on a binge. Shouting at the TV is something I’m getting better practiced at. I will know the outcome anyway. And I did watch The Holgraphic Excitation an unnecessary number of times.

The Tony for Best Revival of a Play went to The Boys In The Band. I'm sure Jim Parsons is quite pleased about that.

They're filming it this summer in LA and NYC with the Broadway cast, for Netflix.

I would have been surprised if they hadn't won anything--the play was astounding

I'll take your word for it as I haven't seen it nor had an interest to do so.
