I know it is fiction, but the finale shows how much Sheldon and his friends have changed over the 12 years of the show. Do you think you can change like that? Or more specifically, would you change to have friends and a partner like Sheldon?

People do change, yes.

I don't feel these characters changed all that much, though.

I feel like the characters getting married were each "jumping the shark" moments. You knew the series was doomed then.

It had a very long run, indeed. And is already profiting greatly in reruns.

Ssaw half of it. Wished I had watched it to the end. Just to say goodbye.

I have changed. That's how I have friends, a job, a wife, and a family.

Saw about 3/4 of it then switched it off. Series finales are usually a big disappointment, and that's how I felt about this one, too.

Yeah. It may have been a disappointment.

I got as far as the scene in which Sheldon got upset that Amy got a make-over. Then got distracted by the computer or something. Never got back to it.

I haven’t watched it. I lost interest in the show over the past couple of seasons.

I should watch it at some point, though. Does Raj end up with anybody?

I don't think I watched more than half an episode.

No, Raj is still looking for "the one." But, he can now talk to women and does something Aspies wish they could do in the final show.

Oh man!

I was hoping he’d find somebody. Of course, that probably would be pushing the happy ending a little too far...
