"The Countdown Reflection" was a fine mixture of laughs and tears for "The Big Bang Theory", 25 November 2012
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

In last season's finale of "The Big Bang Theory": Howard is in a rocket with his two astronaut-mates shooting the breeze awaiting takeoff. During that, Howard thinks back a few days ago to what happened then: After giving Bernadette a star necklace he then takes back so she'd then wear a "star that actually went to space", Bern then tells Howie she wants the wedding before he leaves. So they all go to City Hall but they're too late so then Raj suggests the Sunday before the launch since some satellite camera would be flying above them during it. And Penny then suggests anyone could be ordained online so that's settled...This was both a funny and touching ep of "The Big Bang Theory" and overall, a fine way to end this season of it. Now, it's on to the first of the following one I'll go to next...
