Critic Reviews for The Big Bang Theory Season 12

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (9)

All in all, a sweet, gentle, kind, sentimental and congenial wrap. Exactly what fans would expect.

Top Critic

I'm not sure if they got the physics exactly right, but The Big Bang Theory somehow ended not with a breakup but an "I love you."

Top Critic

The series finale of "The Big Bang Theory" was everything the show did well, and a bit of what it did poorly, wrapped into one hourlong package.

Top Critic

The critical disdain and indifference the show has experienced is its longest, most obsessive running joke, on itself, but also on its detractors. After 12 years, "The Big Bang Theory" gets the final "Bazinga!"

A drama-filled episode...

I'm going to remember those writing credits, and that little hat tip to the fact that indeed, nobody, not even insanely powerful television showrunners, accomplishes anything alone.

May 21, 2019 | Full Review…

[The finale] doesn't create needless drama or focus on characters we don't care about. It zeroes in on the core four (with Howard, Bernadette and Raj as back-up) and gives them the episodic equivalent of a long, warm hug.

The Big Bang Theory says goodbye with an emotional ending to leave fans with a good taste. [Full Review in Spanish]

May 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's the end of an era and I am grateful as a fan to have a finale that provided that emotional value as we bid these characters a final farewell.

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There is no BAZINGA. The moment is sweet, sincere, and lovely. I appreciated the low-key ending of a show that started with a big bang.

    I cant stand the Show, its that bad. with bad lousy character writing. horrendous jokes, poor script and very bad actors, except for howard, sheldon and amy. the rest of the crew is unbearably bad. the jokes are forced and are probably a paragraph long. lol. show is an atrocity, Dont Watch it

    The final episode was very good. comparing the sitcom's ending with other TV shows, such as Friends, How I Met Your Mother, I can say with confidence that Big Bang Theory had the best ending among all the above shows. Of course it is difficult to say goodbye to the characters I have been following for 12 years. Season 12 - the best season of the big bang theory for the last four years

    Excelente temporada,cierre muy emotivo
  • Jun 01, 2019
    Untill season 6 it was a great show, after that it becomes a Moneygrabber show.
  • May 17, 2019
    After watching the finale I have so many emotions. This is how you end a show. Sheldon's transformation was a big subject this season. That also lead to tears as he made his acceptance speech whici was by far the most heartfelt moment in twelve seasons. The Big Bang Theory ends with a bang.
