    I absolutely loved the finale and teared up during Sheldon's speech.
    I had hoped Amy would be pregnant rather than Penny, or at least that Sheldon and Amy had talked about it more than just that episode where they go to babysit Howard's children.
    I had also hoped Raj would get a better ending, maybe that he found someone or got married or maybe even something that has nothing to do with relationships but that gave him a better ending in the show.

    I had the feeling that the show would end with an empty 4A apartment after everyone had moved out to another place/city/country to live separate lives. I'm glad it didn't turn out that way.

    I remember the first episode airing in Italy. I was 9 years old. I couldn't really understand a lot about many things but it was fun. I'm in university now. I watched the last episode crying and it's a tv show I grew up with and it was important to me watching it with my parents. A clever tv show, really well acted and it taught me a lot.
    It's fine to be afraid of something but if you manage to do it, you'll be proud of it forever.
    Growing up it's hard and sometimes you can't make every dream come true but you can love your present for how it turned out to be.
    Women can do science, they are great at it.
    Also... I just want to say that marriage isn't only the love for each other but for something in common too. I get why in a certain way Sheldon felt like the asimmetry was the best part of the day (maybe for a different reason lol) the way they did it together it felt like love for something that link him to Amy.
    Happiness is not only to be found in love toward a lover but also toward a friend.
    A woman can have babies and a carrier and be great doing both.
    Relationships with parents can be hard but sometimes if you fight for your truth they can learn from you as much as you did from them.
    I know I said a lot of stuff but damn my children will watch this tv show.
    I'll rewatch it a lot for sure.

    Jim Parsons is the Yoko Onk of the Big Bang Theory, just as Yoko killed the Beatles, Yoko Parsons killed this show all on his own!

    • Steve Austin

      +Keith Benicek

      Don't you mean the John Lennon of the Big Bang Theory?

      1. Parsons is talented, Lennon was talented (Yoko, not so much, if it weren't for Lennon then nobody would know who Yoko is).

      2. Parsons walked away from Big Bang Theory, Lennon walked away from the Beatles, yes Yoko was partly to blame, but walking away was a choice that Lennon made himself.

      P.S. John Lennon walked away from the Beatles before they became stale/irrelevant, an I think that Parsons did the same, an the fact that Parsons was offered more money and still insisted on leaving, then all the more respect to him.

      P.P.S. The Beatles couldn't evolve further, Big Bang couldn't, end it while you can, otherwise you'll end up like The Simpsons (a show that should have ended 2 decades ago).

    What a pile of fluff. It was funny, but not worthy of all the praise--thanks to the dumbed-down generations we got now. CBS seems to have forgotten it is the network of such shows as All In The Family, Newhart (both eras), The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Carol Burnett, and MASH. This show will soon be forgotten, as it should be.

    No blame on the actors but this showed died about 6 years ago due to the writers totally running out of ideas and reduced to churning out the same old gags ad nauseum. Quantity over quality. This dead horse ain't walking no more however hard they continued to flog it.

    Just give it few years, when they strive to be relevant, when they become not-that-big in other endeavors, & their money starting to dry....
    They will come back together for BBT to strike the iron whatever “hot” is left.

    The Big Bang Theory is a story about beautiful women taking advantage of brilliant, socially awkward men sold as a delusional love story that completely denounces the hypergamous nature of some females in relationships. But the regressive media will sell it as a comedy.

    The only actor that I felt never fit the show was the actor who played Leonard. The character Leonard was perfect but I wish they got another actor. Nothing against Johnny Galecki's acting. I just felt that while the other cast members fit their roles perfectly he always looked like he was trying too hard to be geeky. I was thinking maybe Michael Cera or Justin Long. Coulda shoulda woulda; it's over now.

Anyways, I hope they all go on and do other great show's or movies!
