And it's not just My Little Pony. This year will mark the end of many other Movies and/or TV Shows. For fans of How to Train your Dragon, this week will see the release of How to Train your Dragon: The Hidden World. The series has started since early this decade with the first movie. In addition to having a second movie, it also got its own Animated Series that aired on Cartoon Network and Netflix, with a total of eight seasons and 118 episodes. In the end, it's tough to say goodbye to a successful franchise(And this coming from someone who saw the first two films) Another show that's ending this year is the Big Bang Theory. The first Season aired in 2007, and they are already in the middle of airing its final season. Though the spin-off series Young Sheldon will continue, the Big Bang Theory will end its 12 year run sometime before September. And the funny thing is that my parents are a fan of the series. Of course, there's another that must be brought up: The Avengers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was in 2008 that Iron Man hit movie theaters and became a surprise hit, kickstarting the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though the MCU will continue on after Avengers: Endgame releases in theaters, one thing is clear. The era that brought us Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye will come to a close with the final battle against Thanos. And of course, Star Wars. Mainly the Skywalker saga, which started with A New Hope. Star Wars: Episode 9, for better or worse, will air this December. Once that has arrived in theaters, that's it. And that's not the only piece of Star Wars Media that will end as well. This year, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will come back for one more season, tying up any loose ends that were left behind when Season 6 aired on Netflix back in 2014. Which of these shows will you miss after this year is over? Did I miss any?
You know what really grinds my gears? The Big Bang Theory It used to be my all time favorite sitcom. Well, live-action anyway. But it's remarkable how fast it's crashed and burned. What they've done to Sheldon's character is horrible. I never wanted him to have a romantic relationship, and I definitely never wanted him to advance it and have sex and all that. What they're doing with him betrays everything about his character. The problem at it's core is that we're yet again being beaten over the heads with the overdone trope that no person could possibly be happy without romance, and if someone seems to be happy without romance, there obviously must be something wrong with them. Plenty of people are happy without it, and the direction they've gone with Sheldon just sends the message that this is impossible. And this opinion is coming from someone who's so lonely, and desperately wants to find true love so badly that he's considered suicide more than once in his life, so that oughtta tell you something. Sheldon didn't need to be the same as everyone else. This sitcom didn't need to follow the same road as every other one. It was fresh because it wasn't a husband and wife sitcom, nor a relationship sitcom. Now it's both, and it's roots are so far gone that....um...I don't know....insert some clever analogy having to do with impossible-to-find roots. And with some of their recent gags, like Princess Bride fencing, they've proven that the show isn't stale, and it isn't out of ideas. It could still be great for a good while, but the direction they've gone has left the show a rotting corpse of what it once was. Hence, I'm done. I will never watch another BBT, ever, period. I will cherish my memories of what it used to be, back in season 2. Thanks for joining me in another episode of What Really Grinds My Gears!
