Same here! I wonder whether it was a reference. Wouldn't be surprised if it was.

The Big Bang Theory

Postby BookBabe » Wed Mar 03, 2010 6:38 pm UTC

I find this show to be the perfect medium between intelligence and stupidity. There are jokes that please both the physicist and jokes that please the immature high school student. It puts them together in such a way that the average person such as myself and the beautiful mind genius person, my boyfriend, can enjoy the same humor.

I am aware that there are some mistakes in the show's science. (At least one because my boyfriend pointed it out). But from what I can tell the science is legit and very informative. I DO know that the producer checks his science when he uses it.

If you have anything to add, or find something wrong with my view: please, tell me. I'm not putting this here because I have nowhere else to put it. If anyone else likes/dislikes the show, tell me about it!

It airs on CBS on Mondays at 9:30/8:30c

What I love about this show is that I get jokes that other people don't (flatland is one of the best examples). In the regular jokes, I don't understand half the "celebrity jokes" (it was so awful not knowing who Marisa Tomei was on Seinfeld)...
Still, I'm not a huge fan of the show, I just like to watch it some times.

I'm beginning to feel the same way too. The plots and stories seem to be too focused on Sheldon's quirkiness too much - I enjoyed it at first, but the novelty is beginning to wear off (ducks and hides). It's because I think I've seen too much of him until I could almost predict his actions, which makes things less funny.

I would love to see more plots with Leonard, Raj and Howard - who, despite their weaknesses, are very likeable people. Of course, I love to see more Penny, but that goes without saying 8)

As most of the humor in this show revolves around the complete lack of social skills in physicists, and I'm surrounded with physicists with various degrees of social skill-impairment most of the time, it fails to amuse me.

Me too. I had a non-physicist friend who is a BBT fan, and when he found out I study physics, he asked me all sorts of questions about life of physicists. I think I disappointed him.

It took me a LONNNNG time to get into this series.
My girlfriend loves it so naturally she would always tune in and watch it if i was over and it happened to be on.
I've never been a huge science or math nerd so i must admit the bulk of some of the more theory/equation driven jokes go over my head, but it's slowly but surely worked its way into my ever evolving list of best shows of all time :D

Seeing as it was started shortly after the series started... three years ago... no, it's not a ludicrous title. And there's been no reason to change it so far.

Did anyone else watch the "Plimpton Stimulation" and notice that in Sheldon's emergency supplies he has a crossbow. I refuse to believe that that is a coincidence with http://xkcd.com/564/.

I've seen 10 minutes of it roughly, and would rather sit and stare at the wall than watch it again.

Mind you, that is mostly because a really intense hatred for all false laugh tracks in sitcoms - and the one used in BBT is worse than usual.

(Yes I admit, I read this thread mostly because I was curious what the show was really about, other than a false laugh track that temps me to throw the heaviest object within reach after the tv)

Nope, that's actually a real live audience sitting there. The DVD for the second season has a blooper reel and the audience is just as active then. If it were a laugh track, it wouldn't be present on the blooper reel. And you can also pick out weird individual laughs and voices occasionally, which you can't do on a laugh track (at least not the laugh tracks I've heard).

I find that hard to believe. The laugh track was incredibly annoying. I watched two episodes with a girl I was quasi-dating. It reminded me why I don't watch much broadcast TV. The jokes were lame, and the laugh track after each one was grating. There wasn't anything funny about it. Oh, this guy does something dumb. This other guys makes fun of him for it. Guy #3 acts like a child. It was like the writers just printed a couple pages from TVtropes, and added a laugh track.

I think this show is pretty awesome. The funny (and a bit scary) thing is that I seriously know people exactly like Sheldon (and most of the rest of the cast).

They pretty obviously get a real audience in and tell them when to laugh, if that's spontaneous laughter then that's just depressing.

And what is an "accurate portrayal of nerds" anyway? Like there's only one kind or something! I think it is an fine and comedic portrayal of an amalgamation of nerd, and as a group of individuals, a perfectly fine portrayal of those specific nerds. And they are way cooler than the stereotypical nerds of TV past. I've met me some Sheldon's and I've known me some Leonard's and all of the characters at some point or other say and do things that I totally recognize from my experiences with MIT students and graduates of MIT, my friends here on the XKCD forums, Lincoln Labs and Harmonics employees and the Gamers at X-Strike Studios I was friends with in college.

I just find the show to be a bit of a stereotypical sit-com. Still, perfectly acceptable comedy that I enjoy, and love the take on the acceptance of geeky nerdery in the modern era, but sometimes too annoying and dumb. It varies.

I was sitting in a Regina's Pizzeria with three friends the other day, one ZeroSum from the fora. We were talking about football, but in a very technical and geeky way, the other girl there was getting annoyed with it, and started saying "oh my god, usually I'm the geek among my friends, but with you guys I am Penny, I am Penny, I am Penny."

I guess perhaps there's a certain relativity (no pun) to an individuals over all feeling about the show. Maybe MIT geeks are so close to being like the characters that they can further separate the specific details of how they aren't, and as you get further away, the circle around people you feel are like the guys on BBT becomes larger.

Agreed. I've gotten into the series recently. I really love the one liners and some of the back-and-forth, not to mention any time the cast needs to interact outside of their circle (which is every episode, but still).

Take for example, the scene where Sheldon gets his drivers license:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ElOWplNp1I

I really like the exchange between him and the DMV lady, but holy hell. That's a 146 second clip, and there were 21 instances of laughter. As 2 average seconds of laughter per, 30% of the entire clip is laughter.
The time and seasons go on, but all the rhymes and reasons are wrong

People laugh when they've already been laughing.

Sitcoms have a warm up comedian or two who get the audience laughing.

Alright, know how something can be funny, then not funny, then fucking over-the-top hilarious? The stuff that makes it to air is the fifth or sixth take.

That might have been on purpose. Sheldon or Leonard saying it would have been an error, but Amy is not the same level of geek as them. Her making that type of mistake seems reasonable.

Wow, I had trouble locating this thread.

Anyway, I just saw S06E15 and I'm rather conflicted about a little detail: at the start, Leonard is wearing a T-shirt I own and rather like :|
Ok, I did find it on Dawkins' online shop, but come on...

Fashion advice, geeks: is this a great T-shirt or what?

The show does alright with geeky t-shirts. (y'know, besides the unrealistic variety in wardrobe, and layering them under multiple jackets in southern California)
That is, I don't think it costs you any geek cred to dress like Leonard.

My brother has had 4 or 5 goodwill finds that we later saw on the show.

I don't know. I've heard tale that people in Southern California put on sweaters when it dips below 68F.

And here in Northern England, it's not unheard of to see people out and about in T-shirt and jeans while snow swirls gently from the sky - in most habitable climates, it's more a matter of how the current temperature compares to the temperatures you're used to than the absolute temperature...
