I was watching it so much on one of our local channels, I got worn out onthem. But I do watch the new ones. I just wonder how much longer it'll be on. It seems they've done almost everything, except for Bernadette and Howard having a baby.

Love it! though when they started getting relationships involved it kind of lost its charm and began to focus a bit to much on that...its like a nerdy version of friends now, nothing like its original form.

I never thought about it but you're right. Still, they had to expand somehow, without added more characters.

I watch it every week. I've watched seasons 1-5 at least 4 times over in the last year.

Can't get enough of it.

I absolutely love this show. Unfortunately I've only watched the first episode of the most recent season, but one day I'll actually sit down and catch up.

That's how I feel with so many shows.

Bleh, I couldn't disagree more. They could fire her tomorrow and it would only improve things. Adding Mayim Bialik (and to a lesser extent, Melissa Rauch) really showed how worthless Cuoco is.

Here's a drinking game-- take a shot every time Cuoco purses her lips/makes a stupid duck face after saying one of her lines. You may not make it through an entire episode without passing out dead.

I think that just comes with the character and not put on by Kaley herself.

Yeah that's a part of her character. She makes that face whenever she doesn't know what the nerds are talking about physics or what amy says that has to do with neurobiology. I love her on this show.

Not too Funny

The Big Bang Theory is a really overrated show. Like many sitcoms, if you take the laugh track out, it's not as funny. There is a part of our brain that makes things more funny when other people laugh (it's a form of adapting to our environment by forming relationships with others). Here is a link to a guy who takes out the laugh track on Youtube. If you really think a sitcom is funny, try watching it without the track, The Office style.

I never found this show funny anyway (I always thought it was painfully unfunny, honestly), but that video definitely was cringe worthy.


If you like it, enjoy yourself, I just don't find anything in it funny what so ever.

The fact that you sit and take the time to dissect the TV show defeats the purpose of any comedy. I could sit here and pick apart any TV show and make you believe it isn't funny. Nothing special here.

Everyone has the right to their opinions, but I still watched that youtube clip without the laughing and I still thought it was funny because I have seen the show so many times and I find it funny that Sheldon can't understand sarcasm yet he is a genius.

Now, the movie isn't so serious. It has become a comedy. Does it make it any less of a Batman film?

I used to think is was very funny. Haven't seen an epidose in a year, but after a while I just thought of it as a feel good series.
