Normally I can't stand laugh tracks. After a while, I sometimes manage to block it out. I never understood the point. Is the purpose telling when I'm supposed to find something funny? Is the material not funny enough to speak for itself?
I saw this following clip on the internets a week or so ago. Imagine, Star Wars...with a laugh track.
I have to say that it actually works. Seeing this scene with a laugh track did make me laugh. Does this defeat all my years of being anti-laugh track?
