They tried to get Charlie Sheen back on the show for the final episode,but Charlie refused.


I loved Two Men until the kid got
too big. The first 6 seasons were
genius, I bet I've seen them all
10 times at least. Still funny.

It is starting to look like TBBT will be on forever. I do not know how they generate enough cash to pay those salaries for Modern family. Jim Parsons is getting paid to produce and do the voice overs for Young Sheldon as well, cementing his position as the top paid TV star.

At the very least, the Sarah Hyland character will probably get a spin off series.

Nobody on the show is good enough
for a spin off except Ty Burrell. I can't
imagine what he would do, though.
He's perfect as the goofus American
husband, even better than Bryan
Cranston was in Malcolm..

It's winding down. Some jokes on current episodes that would have been hilarious earlier on feel tired today. Example:

Penny: I can't believe my best friend would side with Sheldon.
Leonard: I can't believe my best friend is Sheldon!
Donald Trump is a fucking liar

Ty Burrel was in the second Marvel cinematic Universe movie a decade ago as Doc Samson. They have never recast the character so I'm sure they are holding the part for him.

Sitcoms traditionally wind down. Roseanne lost half over half her audience dropping from #1 to #35 before she was cancelled in 1997. Although a lot of jokes on TBBT are getting stale, it is still ranked on top after all these years.

Johnny Galecki appeared on 92 episodes of Roseanne.

This is pretty funny with Ty Burrell as a Nazi.

I don't think I have enough to say on this for a whole thread at WoV so I'll bring it up here.

In the last episode of TBBT, Sheldon went to Las Vegas, hoping to parlay $65,000 into a much larger amount to fund a science project. He is seen observing a roulette wheel when an employee in a suit approaches him. Then the following dialogue occurred, and I'm paraphrasing.

Suit: Can I help you?
Sheldon: No thanks. I have been studying this roulette wheel for several hours and I'm finally ready to bet. I did a chi-squared analysis and have noticed that the wheel strongly favors the numbers 5, 17, and 32. So, if you'll excuse me, I want to bet the next spin...
Suit: Pelican.
Sheldon: Why did you say "pelican"?

Two security guards then drag Sheldon from the table with rolled up wads of cash in his hand.

Dealer: 17
Sheldon: Auuuughhh!

Okay, where should I start? In the lengthy thread on the Organic Roulette Interblock experiment I lamented that for as many tests for randomness that there are, there are none that I'm aware of that are appropriate for testing for a biased roulette wheel well. The chi-squared test, which Sheldon did, is a good start, and is what I do, but it doesn't consider the order of the numbers. I might add that 32, 17, and 5 are consecutive on the wheel, so kudos to the writers for sharp writing.

I'm not sure what my point is here and I have no particular question. The whole scene could be attacked on so many levels that I hate to get started on that. I at least appreciate the mention of the chi-squared test and the three numbers mentioned were consecutive. I can't think of any other show where I would trust them to get such details right.

So, yeah, this is a rare time I don't have much to say, but I couldn't not bring up the topic.

So how many viewers think it's
possible and will try and do what
Sheldon did.
