After twelve seasons as one of the most-watched comedies on TV, “The Big Bang Theory” aired its series finale Thursday night. The show is still a hit, but it’s come to an end because star Jim Parsons, whose role as Sheldon Cooper has won him four Emmy awards, ultimately decided it was time to move on. As co-creator Chuck Lorre told the Hollywood Reporter, he didn’t consider continuing “The Big Bang Theory” without Parsons. So the cast, crew and writers knew the twelfth season would be the last.

"The Big Bang Theory" didn't end with a bang. That was never the point of the hit CBS comedy, which ended its 12-season run Thursday with a one-hour finale that featured big, but hardly shocking, news. After 279 episodes, "Bang" landed its core cast comfortably and appropriately, back in the same place they've always been geographically, but in a better position, by degrees, in terms of emotional maturity. Not that there wasn't some turbulence getting to the final resting spot, but we'll get to that. The finale, actually two episodes ("The Change Constant" and "The Stockholm Syndrome"), culminates the season-long story of Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and his wife, Amy (Mayim Bialik), potentially winning the Nobel Prize in Physics.
