    Just that, did you watch it? did you like it? Did you have an opinion about it? Did it end as you expected it to?

    Watched it, laughed throughout it, and will miss it.

    Also loved that at the end of the season finale of Young Sheldon they tied into Big Bang.

    A very well done and logical conclusion. I was happy to see more than a few broken things got repaired.

    Nicely put, Mike. It was a satisfying end to a great series. The end bit on Young Sheldon was a nice touch and I enjoyed the "behind the scenes" half-hour show, too.

    I liked it...and their appearance afterward on S.Colbert, with The Bare Naked Ladies playing the theme song.
    Destined to live forever in reruns.

    Not sure where the actors go from here, hope they are not typecast by the industry and their fans.
    The history of post sit com series for the actors on Friends and Seinfeld doesn't exactly bode well, not sure many of those actors were in a show that came even close, or one that succeeded for very long.

    Well, there were some flops, but from Friends Monica had Cougar Town and Joey now stars in Man with a Plan, and from Seinfeld Elaine had Veep. A few other actors have been fortunate to be in two smash hits, e.g.: Murray from Mary Tyler Moore became captain of the Love Boat, Frasier from Cheers had a longer run than the original series, Maude was later one of the Golden Girls, and Al Bundy from Married with Children is now on Modern Family.

    I don't watch Young Sheldon, what happened?

    It was a nice wrap up. It took 12 seasons, but they finally made Sheldon realize that the thing he wanted and needed most wasn't a Nobel Prize.

    I really liked it.

    Haven't watched Young Sheldon but once, perhaps. Trying to use On-Demand to get it to record but the DVR is having a problem doing so right now.

    As for the other actors, some of them had notable success before BBT. Like Kaley Cuoco, "8 Simple Rules" (which would have likely lasted longer if her "TV Dad", actor John Ritter had not died).

    Johnny Galecki was on Roseanne for years, even showed up on the recent reboot.

    Jim Parsons has been doing other gigs during off-time from the show. He was even in the movie "Hidden Figures".

    And oh yeah, Mayim Bialik has had a longer career than anyone on the show.
    Remember that show from the 1980's: "Young Amy"?
    [​IMG](Blossom) And in-between those gigs, among other things, she got a doctorate in neuroscience (for real)

    The "previously on" scenes at the beginning of the episode included Howard's exploding Saturn V model rocket (ouch).

    And, there were model rockets on the bench next to the radio in the Young Sheldon episode.

    They referenced young Sheldon getting the Nobel, in the future, when he got older.

    Still, I think this was the funniest bit on Young Sheldon….check the name on the notebook at 0:31.
