Default The Big Bang Theory series finale was true to itself

...: "It didnít try to do too much or too little"

https://www.indiewire.com/2019/05/bi...rs-1202142241/

"The series finale of The Big Bang Theory was everything the show did well, and a bit of what it did poorly, wrapped into one hourlong package," says Ben Travers. "It didnít try to do too much or too little. It didnít buck expectations, shift formats, or try to set a new standard for series finales. It really wasnít surprising or all that ambitious, but then again, neither was The Big Bang Theory. If anything, Chuck Lorre and Bill Pradyís goodbye to normcore geek culture went out of its way to avoid changing much of anything, despite spending its first half learning to accept the inevitability of change as a universal constant...What The Big Bang Theory did best was make time for its characters to just be ó to sit and talk and eat and speculate about impossible pop culture pairings or concoct ludicrous big-brained ideas. While not as sharp in its dialogue or performances as the mecca of friendship sitcoms, Friends, Big Bang treated its ending like one precious, yet not too precious, final hour to spend with the gang. And as other endgames go horrifically off-the-rails, this one felt refreshingly true to itself."

It was really good. I just felt bad that Raj ended up alone.

It was about as good as they were going to do. I hate those forced finales where multiple characters suddenly move away, get married, have a baby, etc. all in one episode. This was really a 3 episode ending to me since they focused on Leonard in the previous week.

Some of them said they were prepared to do season 13 had Parsons not just felt the time was right to move on. Given how boring and dragged out Season 12 was to reach the last 3 episodes, I think Parsons was absolutely right. Short of a major (and successful) re-vamp this show was done. The finale was 2 episodes, but screen time fell way short of 60 minutes, which is why I think it was really 3 episodes that began a week before.

I thought it was a great final episode. The edited version of the pilot episode (which is the one run in syndication) is the best pilot episode I ever saw, so the series bookended nicely. Did anyone else pick up on the fact that the entire final episode could have been a dream sequence. Sheldon falls asleep while waiting for the Nobel call, so it is possible to reboot at a point in the future where none of the things that took place in that episode actually happened.

It was a great finale. When it was over, I wanted to watch season 1 again so I did. Usually, when a show has a bad (Seinfeld) or mediocre (Friends) finale, I have to take a break from it for a while.
