My first, and probably last post in this thread, but I just wanted to say that I really liked the finale. I watched the show from the pilot and liked it up until maybe 3-4 years ago where I thought the show hit a wall..... I still blame Penny's hair cut.

Anyway, I still watched every show even though I have been over it for a long time, but I was rewarded with a simply great series finale..... even with that great ending, I still couldn't get it off of my DVR's series to-do-list quick enough.

Did anyone watch Young Sheldon's S2 finale with its ending related to TBBT's series finale? Here's the clip:

I was happy with this finale. I wish there was more but I’m glad it ended on a happy note for everyone involved and not centered around some tragedy or having someone experience a big hardship.

I haven’t been a regular viewer but would catch an episode every once in a while.

It took about 5 or 6 episodes to get going in the beginning, but it's been hitting on all cylinders since then. Its finale did a great job of tying into Big Bang in its final scene as well. As for other sit comes, I haven't found any quality ones. I still watch Last Man Standing, but it lost a lot of its mojo the year it was off the air.

Dave - I agree with everything you said above.

I've watched and enjoyed BBT from the beginning. I agree that it was time for the show to end, and I agree that it ended well (with the tag on Young Sheldon being frosting on the cake).

Of course none of these actors need ever work again, but of course they will. Hard to say which, if any (besides Parsons), will have successful careers beyond sitcoms or summer comedy movies, but I'm sure they will all try. It's hard to stay out of the limelight. (Bialik, of course, already has a successful off-screen career).

I do hope to see Kevin Sussman (Stuart) do well. I thought he sort of got short shrift during the finale, the special, and the Colbert interview.

I'm thinking that I might keep my CBS AA Amazon Channel sub running long enough to re-watch a couple of the early seasons in their un-cut form.

My prediction is that Cuoco will have another TV show at some point and Parsons will do a lot of live stage work on Broadway. I'm not sure of the rest of the cast. Like you said, none of them need to work again in their lives if they don't want to.

Well I'm glad the "Sheldon Show" is over. I watched the final season because I watched the show when it first came on when it was geek humor. After a while it became the tv show "Friends". I would keep an eye out for good guest stars and watch then. Most of this last season I watched, but didn't laugh at all, with the exception of Stuart. His scenes in the final was the only thing I laughed at. The episode where they all went over to Wil Wheaton's house to play D&D was funny as well.

JMHO

Looks like they are showing Episode 1 on Thursday, might tune in to see how things changed in 12 years.

The pilot is a bit jarring. You can pick up on some changes that were made between episodes 1 and 2. It’s a different vibe for sure.

We finally watched this episode. I thought it was a nice ending. Not stupid, but not overly sappy. I took small issue with Sheldon and Amy going from writing one paper to getting a Nobel in a few weeks time. I'd always heard it took years and years of accomplishments to get a Nobel.

I really thought it'd end with people moving away, but I'm okay with this. It's almost as if life moves on, and will keep doing so.

In the sciences fields, Nobels are awarded for a discovery, not many of them. It has to be proven or validated (by others) and that may be done quickly or may take a long time. After that though, a person (or persons) is eligible. Remember, that was a big part of the story on TBBT - the other two guys that "proved" Sheldon and Amy's theory.
