Mid morning will be right haseen it has been a popular, quirky comedy.
And now, it's almost time to say goodbye to sheldon, penny, leonard & the rest of the gang on the big bang theory.
After 12 incredible seasons and 279 episodes, how will the longest- running multi- cam comedy series be remembered?
During their final days on set, the cast shared their thoughts on the show's legacy& pre fonted have a great show everyone.
- i think i would like our show to be rembered as a really strong four camera sitcom.
That films in front of a live audience in an era when not a lot of people want to do that.
Not a lot of people can do that.
And not a lot of people can do it as well as chuck lorre does it.
- i think it's going to live on in everyone's hearts.
Good characters last forever and these characters are winners.
They started out in a way as losers and they are winners at the end of the day.
It doesn't have to be so life- changing sometimes.
It can also just be a show that was well written and people loved the characters and it made people laugh and it brought people together.
Grandparents and kids could watch it together.
I would like the show to be remembered as one that&no one saw coming.
We didn't get a lot of critical love to begin with.
And then it just kind of kept climbing.
And i'm really proud of that.
- "erase tha take!"
If people remember their experience with these characters.
Which is "oh watched this with my mother."
This wouldn't exist without people that invested their time and, and connected.
"that's mar hamill!"
Think the way i'd like the show to be rembered in that it just made people happy.
That just warms my heart.
It's different for everybody i guess what they get from it.
If it brought joy i think that's good.
We all have shows that we watch over & over that probably were on so many years ago that we love, that brings us comfort.
And i believe that the big bang theory brings people comfort.
You can catch the 1-hour season finale on thursday may 16 from at 7pm right here on wcbi-tv.

Eddie adams// lead cellist :26 - :33 gerald fowkes// adams' high school music teacher 1:17 - 1:21 june huang// director of string instruments, george mason university 1:45 - 1:50 script: what is happening to you when you play?
I mean mostly it's me trying to ignore the fact that there's hundreds of people in front of me... for 20 year old eddie adams, the cello has been an instrument for much more than music& 13;16;19;16 //- i would stay after school and practice and just you know- um- for however long.
And then would take like the after school bus home just to at least spend as much time as i can being, i guess away from reality.
13;16;41;12 ://the cello takes you away from reality?
He struggled with a difficult home life, and at times, lived with his family in a shelter... i just rember it was kind of weird especially having to take the school bus from the homeless shelter.
In junior high school, he discovered the cello by chance... 13;13;42;29 they like had us go around and try different instruments percussion and they said i had no rhythm .
So um then i ended up not playing percussion and they were like, "oh we nee people in the orchestra."
An then that was like the first time i a saw cello and i was like, " don't want to do this."
But he persevered&with the help of cello youtube videos and encouragement from people like his high school music teacher gerald fowkes .
At the time his escape was music.
He became so good so fast that george mason university offered him a full tuition scholarship even though he had never had a private lesson... he has talent.
The director of stringed instruments at george mason june huang , says adams audition was special... i rember that moment because it's unique when you hear music come from the core of somebody, the silent peaceful middle of someone and i felt honored to witness that.
When he didn't have one of his own, huang lent adams her cello&.
14;01;30;03 jh: // i believe we are mandated as human beings to lift each other and to bring each other's gifts forward.
And that's really all i'm doing.
And he made beautiful music on my terrible cello& for adams, simple deeds like those have been life changing... whatoes what does the cello mean to you?
Everything because it's kind of gotten me everything that i have now.
And it got me into school and i never saw myself in college.
