Yaaaaaaayyyyy!! I LOVE that show!
Slapstick is kinda boring, I like the inside jokes on TBB that most folks don't really get
They were talking about the possibility that some funding could go to the Arts instead of the Sciences at the University, Sheldon's response was "Oh, the Humanities!!" LOVED it!
"Inside jokes", the exact reason why TBBT is so popular.
"LOL NERDY joke! OMG THAT JOKE IS SO FUNNY I SOOO GET THAT!! THAT MUST MEAN I AM A HUGE NERD XD I AM SO SPECIAL!!"
The "humor" from TBBT derives from the characters being "nerdy", and the audience either believes that they themselves are nerdy as well and laugh because they think they can relate, or the audience laughs because they enjoy laughing at "nerds".
Then you have the laugh track which is used in a Pavlovesque way to make the audience think that the things being said are hilarious, when in fact they clearly aren't.
Also the show is just facking stupid. The writers clearly don't even know what they're talking about when they try make "smart" or "nerdy" jokes (poorly coded emulator XDDD). Real physicists and engineers don't sit around playing video games. Real "nerds" don't play Call of Duty or Halo (or even act in any way similar to the characters on the show).
The show is awful. It is made for the absolute lowest common denominator of society. Any show that still uses a freaking laugh track is clearly awful and should be avoided.
If you enjoy this show you are the mindless and tasteless cancer that is killing the entertainment industry.
Edit: If you think you're "intelligent" because you watch TBBT or get the "jokes" on TBBT you should probably kill yourself now, because you are the scum of society.edit on 26-6-2012 by Nosred because: (no reason given)
You need to have a little chat with your Election Campaign Manager - If I didn't know any better (and judging by this comment of yours I don't) I would say you have a personal issue with:
2. The Big Bang Theory
3. Anyone who likes the BBT
For goodness sake - its a TV show. You don't like it but can outline episode plots in one single post - right down to the actual video games they "apparently" play.
Take a look at the title of your OP then take a look at your comments to purplechiten.
Come on - tell us what is really bothering you?
