    I've always enjoyed it, but it is getting a bit long in the tooth. 12 seasons is almost unheard of with any show these days. It's had a good run and it's probably time to put it to rest before they jump the shark.

    LOL, that would be a great series finale if they got Sheldon to water ski on a dare and had him jump the shark tank.

    So after this coming season huh? I kept reading all summer that they were in negotiations for 2 more seasons. I'll bet the show was going to be too expensive and they couldn't reach an agreement, so they just decided that's it.

    The big question is now if there will be a spin-off for anyone of them, kinda like Joey after Friends ended.

    My take:
    Leonard and Penny are married with kids (presumably, at the end of the show), so it will have to be just a normal family sitcom. NO

    Even though Howard is a "kookie" character, but he and Berny are married with kids. NO

    Sheldon and Amy may have potential sitcom show, but the whole Sheldon routine is getting old. MAYBE

    The only one I can see with a good show is Raj. It'll be a major move by a network to have an Asian Indian as the main cast. We can see his further adventures as he try to survive a new city and job. They need to throw in another hook, something like he's poor now. The only friend he has is maybe Stuart. MAYBE

    Let's talk about what might be the final scene.....

    My gut is telling me the elevator is finally fixed (or maybe Sheldon had fixed it a looooong time ago) and they go in and the door closes...or version 2 is it closes and they get stuck.

    You are forgetting, we already have a spinoff....Young Sheldon.

    As far as the others, I don't see it. There have been a couple of other shows with Indians or other Asians as main characters. I don't think, in this day and age, that would be a big deal. I just don't think the Raj character could carry a whole show. And I agree, the others would be too typical. Maybe Penny and Leanard move to Nebraska and they write a series about that situation? Intellectual scientist living among the "real" Americans? It's been done in various forms already, including Young Sheldon. I just think that they'll just move on from TBBT and YS will be the only spinoff.

    Yep, exactly what I'm thinking. Sheldon has fixed the elevator, didn't tell anyone because among his other foibles, he's claustrophobic too. But maybe that's too cliche?

    I have been binge watching. The show hit some dry episodes a few years ago but is back on stride. Guess it is better to go out on top.....

    My take on the last episode.. they find out Sheldon has bought the building because he doesn't want to move again.

    Oddly enough, Stewart getting the spinoff would probably work best. He gets random customers and celebs coming to his comic book store. It's an interesting hook. And he's an odd quirky personality that they could easily mold into something more elaborate.

    Go way subtler - have a shot where you can see some of the TV as one of the characters is playing Mass Effect; as they launch the MAKO off a ridge.

    Sheldon builds a time machine and goes 30 years into the future to meet himself, only to learn that he's been missing for 30 years.

    Unfortunately, Arrested Development already did that joke (with Henry Winkler, no less) so I doubt another show would want to copy that.

    Ehhh... I like the show, but it's probably good it's ending. It's pretty much run it's course. Not sure a spinoff would really work.

    Howard gets his doctorate, Rhaj meets the woman of his dreams, Leonard finally gets love from his mom, The elevator gets fixed, Howard's father returns, Rhaj moves to India to work for their space agency,We learn Penny's last name. Stewart and his employee become a couple. Penny visits her doctor and finds out she is pregnant while diving home her check engine light comes on and she ignores it. Her car stalls on a railroad track and the worst happens. Next scene is black screen with all of the gang shouting "Push, you can do it" slow focus to a delivery room. The gang are ohhing and awing over a baby girl... Amy and Sheldon's. They name her Penny. Sheldon declares "This is better than any Noble prize" The End.

    I got this from FB :)

    I like it, except for the Penny dies part. That's just TOO dark for this show which has never shown a dark side like that.

    BTW, shouldn't this thread be over in TV Talk (where we have two other threads speculating on the ending)?
