The Big Bang Theory
« on: October 02, 2008, 11:14:11 AM »
APPARENTLY there isn't even a thread for this little gem of a show, so I'll go ahead and start one.

I'm very glad that the show is back for season 2. When the strike happened, I was afraid that it would be one of the new shows affected, and not get renewed.

What are your thoughts on how things went between the end of season 1 and the start of season 2? I was a little disappointed that things pretty much just went back to normal again with no real change. Doesn't make me love the show any less, I was just hoping they would keep taking it in that different direction.

I like the show, too, although I haven't seen any of the new season yet. I don't have access to a tv during the week so APGIL has to tivo everything for me. There was a lot to watch this past weekend so I didn't get to BBT, but I'll get to it eventually.

I really liked this show last season, in spite of the fact that APGIL doubled over in pain while I was watching it because he thought it was so god-awful. I thought it was cute and I actually laughed out loud several times. In my estimation, that's what makes a successful show. If I'm not actually laughing (and not just a "heh"), then I don't bother with it again.

I saw a bit of it playing in a Suncoast store. It looks like "nerds are amusing because they are so socially inadquate and lame-silly and nerdy, and big stupid guys are big and stupid, and the smart sensitive  loser guy must get the pretty girl in the end " comedy. It has no appeal for me.

Thought I'd add my support in here.  I find BBT pretty funny, even though the stereotypes are a little obvious.  The cast are good, and despite the fact that the "hot girl" seems almost peripheral to the plot most weeks, it works well enough to be enjoyable for its 20 minutes a week.  It seems harder and harder to get a multi-camera sit-com right these days - just look at the awfulness of the recently cancelled Do Not Disturb - and so to see one that gets it right is refreshing.

I really enjoyed this week's episode. Seeing the visual impact of Penny's spiral into video game addiction was hilarious. Especially since I have known some people who made up for failures in their own life by pouring themselves into online games.

My favourite line of the episode:

"I'm not getting the research time, am I?" ;)

I love Sheldon. Or should I say Sheldor the Conqueror? ;)

He's not alone.

I just don't see what the appeal of the irksome bimbo is.

Nice tits, and the enjoyment of seeing her infuriation at interacting with Sheldon, which feels SO MUCH like what it feels like to try to talk to a super nerd. It's a very well-captured dynamic. IMO. :)

No, I mean I don't see why any of the other characters would be interested in interacting with her. :)
