"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I was never able to get passed the laugh track. I think it had something to do with my 5.1 sound system. The laugh track was crazy loud on surround and just made most scenes awkward and annoying. I never noticed it on other sitcoms though. Just Big Bang.
I have a different set up now (sound bar) so maybe I should see if it bothers me as much. Most people I talk with go on and on about how funny it is. It was always hard for me to find it funny with the awkward pauses and abnormally loud laughter.
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
The interesting thing about software is it can not reproduce, until it can.
Couldn't agree more. As with many American sitcoms it's become stale and resorting to self indulgence for its laughs, which are few ad far between since the 'fell on her ladyparts' line a series or two ago.
I also like the show. And after 7 years you can't expect the same level of humor as the first season. But they still have really funny episodes after every 2-3 not-so-funny episodes. I think they now have too many characters and half of them are not as well written as Sheldon's character.
Same thing is happening with 'How I met your mother'. IMO any TV show that runs past 5 seasons will go downhill.
