In relation to this, my Step-mum and her parents were talking during dinner last night and it would appear they all think it's called Gang Bang style :lol:

Funnier than the show. But then again, a hernia would be funnier than The Big Bang Theory.

I can understand why people wouldn't like The Big Bang Theory. I can't understand how anyone would find those funny though

I find the characters and plot lines to be extremely irritating. I didn't get those little shitty comic things either.

The Big Bang Theory really is predictable, stereotypical and terribly unfunny. Yet I've found myself enjoying it.

Big Bang Theory without the laughter track completely falls flat.

Note: it's not a laugh track, it's filmed in front of a live audience, which is also why the programme with the laughter cut seems so slow paced, because they have to wait for the audience to calm down before carrying on the scene.

Eugh, one of my housemates loves it. Worst of all he's not even one of these trendy pseudo-nerds but a proper sadact. Nails on a chalk board every time he chuckles to one of the shitty jokes.

The Big Bang Theory = simple TV wrapped up with big words made with the intention of getting people to laugh at jokes they don't really get in order to make them feel more intelligent than they actually are.

A bit like Inception but with a laughter track.

I liked Inception.

More so for the cinematography than the pretentious and weighty plot though.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Best way I've heard it described: "Smart humour for dumb people."

(And Community have been described as "Dumb humour for smart people." It's awesome. Go watch it everyone.)
