As TBBT is over and likely never to return, does it really matter what the thread title is anymore? At this point I'm happy with whatever brings people back to the forum. As Chucky said, "I just go with the flow."

But in the spirit of cooperation, I'll offer this on topic comment: Season 12 was a monumental disappointment. Wasted on the Shamy Nobel story line which was, in itself, bogged down with that nonsensical story involving those two idiots that were trying to steal credit for the idea. In a season of mediocrity that was the biggest waste of time. Closely pursued by the Penny not wanting children drama.

Don't get me wrong. There were episodes I enjoyed and there weren't any I will not watch in reruns, but they could, and should, have done so much better.

I whole-heartedly agree with your entire post. Especially the bold sections. They wasted so much time on the silly Nobel angle. The other scientist involved was never needed and the Penny not wanting kids was rediculous. As was how they handled Raj and Anu. Would it have been so bad for Raj to find happiness in his life?

Absolutely agree with you.  By my count 13 episodes were devoted to the Shamy quest for the Nobel, 7 for P&L: episodes 3, 6 (this was the Halloween episode but I counted it for P&L as they were featured)  12  , 15, 17, & 22.   Two episodes devoted to ensemble D&D, Paintball. The final two episodes you can also count for Shamy as they were dedicated to the Nobel prize ceremony. I will always feel a little cheated that we did not get to see more of the Penny and Leonard story and also for Raj. I didn't think much of his character but at least they could have given him some kind of closure.

Agreed!

That could work. It's not really science unless you count political science.

I think anything virus related could tie into science. But I don't really care either way. I was just responding to ajond.

If I had Netflix, I think I would certainly tune into Jim Parson in Ryan Murphy's new show, Hollywood, if that's more on topic. I've heard a lot about it and I've seen a lot of pictures of him in the 40's suits with the wide lapels and the pocket squares.  It was mentioned in last week's Parade magazine and there's an article here:

So very true. When you hit your 60's, you'll look back lovingly at your 30's.

 If you can remember your thirties...

The thirties I remember, the twenties, not so much.  My wife reminds me of what took place when I was in my thirties. But then, they may be her memories.   😊

It is interesting but i'm not sure it's all that unusual. I've seen a lot of actors interviewed that say they do not watch their own performances. That apart from production playback of individual scenes they never watch their work. A similar interview with the rest of the cast could result in a similar response.

Agreed! Actors not watching themselves is probably more common  than we know.

It's very common.  I hate watching recordings of plays I've been in.  My daughter hates it too.    When you're watching yourself, you start thinking about why you made that acting choice and not another acting choice, or something you thought looked great, while you were doing it, actually really looks bad.  Some, like Kaley, in addition to how they appear, hate how her voice sounds.  For that reason, she doesn't watch herself

However, she's having to get over not hearing and not watching herself.  As the executive producer, on The Flight Attendant,  she's in the editing bay, when they are editing the show.  So she has to watch and listen to herself.  Other actors that have made the transition to producers have also had to learn to get over it.

Have you heard anything about when they will finish filming the last three episodes of The Flight Attendant

Nope.  I heard this morning that another movie, will start shooting in June, in the UK.  The two actors (Chris Pratt is one of them) will fly to the UK, and then be put into a two week quarantine, and will have to pass a Covid test before they start.   But, there is no word on when they will start shooting in the US.  SAG is going to determine when they feel it's safe for the actors.  EQUITY is doing the same thing for stage actors.

We should do a big bang theory watch party on this forum one day lol. I kinda miss the show and its community. 

Yeah, as do I. We do have the daily reruns, but, they're definitely not the same as having new episodes.
