Can you imagine where they would have been by season 4 if they had acknowledged their feelings from day 1?

I'd have a love hate relationship with them doing a proposal gag like Leonard and Penny did - I could see myself finding it hilarious or annoying and it'd probably depend on the day (though I did love it with Leonard and Penny, so my annoyance would just be seeing it a second time, even though it's a different show).

Since they are both CBS shows, it would feel a lot like copycat.

Agreed, different genres but there was enough overlap at least in casual viewership.

Especially since they were both about socially awkward geniuses.

I miss these two. Like specifically, I miss loving them as much as I did. The way the show ended didn't change that, but the fandom for Scorpion evaporated so much faster and dramatically than I'd seen on a show before, and with few people to talk to about them, few people reading fic, etc, it's hard to love a ship long term in your head. I see photos and stuff and still get all the feels, but it's not the same. (Also, my probably odd attachment to Florence and Sylvester probably drew a little of the passion I had for Waige away from them.)

Much the same for me. Most of the fandoms I've been invested in have lasted well past the end of the show, but the Scorpion fandom seems to have evaporated almost immediately after the finale aired. It seems there were a few corrective fics over the summer, but then it all died down. I do wonder how much the finale influenced that.

I think it did leave a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths. (Not really that for me though, since I know they didn't intend for that to be how it ended.)

I only have when they've shown up on TV, but I also watch almost 0 TV at all nowadays.

I recorded all of them on my DVR from PopTV, so I can watch any that I want anytime I want,

And now that I have my new Roku, I can watch them on my Paramount subscription.
