It's an alright show. People who say it's the funniest show however, have obviously not seen Arrested Development or The Office.

Or always sunny in Philadelphia. Best comedy Show EVA

Man, now THAT is a show that is underrated.

I like it. Not the funniest but it does entertain me. Most of the negative criticism I have seen on this site, is that it laughs at the nerd/geek culture and not actually with it. I can laugh at myself, so the show doesn't bother me much. But I did get offended originally. Thing is, those dudes are successful and have hot girls on their arms, which is usually how us nerds wined up.

It's not that is makes fun of comics and video games. It's that it stereotypes them. Like when their apartment got broken into, instead of worrying about credit cards, money, and the electronics and such, Sheldon runs to go see if is comics were still there. I love comics, but if I was broken into I wouldn't care about them being stolen.

I have no sympathy at all for people who claim to hate this show while having enough knowledge about it to prove they've clearly seen every episode. If you don't like it turn the F**king channel

Not every episode, and ya gotta watch some episodes to actually judge a tv show. So yeah to review and judge a movie/comic/game/show/book you got to sit down and see it for yourself.

Yes but if you aren't a professional critic and you've already decided you don't like it then there is absolutely no logical reason to keep watching just to complain about it. For instance I don't like Annoying Orange, I watched 2 episodes, realized it was the dumbest thing on Earth and stopped watching. Simple as that.

So now is ok for people to hate good things... Seems legit...

@deathstroke02: I just don't see why a lot of these people saying they hate it can't seem to quit watching it.

@joshmightbe: When people see something good they instantly say that is overrated... Just like Breaking Bad...

There is a difference between Breaking Bad and Big Bang Theory though. Breaking Bad gets high rating with both TV critics and fans of the show. So it makes some sense to even bring up the question. Big Bang Theory though hasn't gotten that since maybe the first few seasons. In fact I see more negative feedback from Big Bang Theory than positive. Which is why I object to the question in the first place.

No I just think it's awful. Only few have said that BB is overrated.

@gor724: My point was simply to ask why people would watch a show they dont like. Even if you only have one tv and someone happens to be watching the show you still have options. Read a book or go online or hell just go outside for a half hour and find something to do.

I'v tried watching it about 10 times. A lot of my friends watch it, and they don't watch a lot of shows I watch. So I try watching it so I can know hat they are talking about so I don't feel left out when they are talking about it

@joshmightbe: I enjoy spending time with my parents. And usually, when it comes on, it's around 7-8 at night. I'm on my computer anyways most nights but it is still annoying background noise I can't just filter out.

It's always been perfectly acceptable for people to dislike something. Whether or not it's good or bad is subjective. Some people, like myself, just can't stand it. Others think it's hilarious.

@princearagorn1: It was a parody of something of which the creator didn't find funny. I agree with the animator. In my opinion, TBBT is not funny. How it has won awards is beyond me.

@joshmightbe: It seems rude to listen to music when I'm in the room with my parents. So no.

#73 Edited by joshmightbe (24885 posts) - - Show Bio

@_zombie_: If you aren't willing to do anything about it then you really have no right to complain, I'm sure your parents wouldn't mind missing 30 minutes a week of family time. And if you can't spend a solid half hour away from your parents then you might have a bigger problem than the quality of a TV show.

@joshmightbe: Why are you so adamant on defending this viewpoint? All I did was dare to suggest that you're not entirely right.

I'm 'not willing to do anything about it' because while it's a bad show, I don't mind putting up with it. That doesn't make the show magically above criticism.

Also, resorting to insinuating that I have a problem when I spend, on average, a few hours with my family is a bit pathetic.

This is getting wildly off-topic. Ending this here.

@joshmightbe: I'm not saying you have to watch every episode. I'm just saying you need to watch more then 10 minutes to judge it, you don't have to be a professional critic yes, but just as you did, you gave it a look at and stopped watching.

#77 Edited by joshmightbe (24885 posts) - - Show Bio

@_zombie_: You were claiming you had absolutely no alternative to watching it, I was merely pointing out that you were wrong, you have tons of options other than watching the show, not saying you shouldn't spend time with your parents just that maybe you could spend time with them when the show isn't on and then find something else to do for the roughly 30 minutes it is on. Your insistence that the show is some unavoidable thing that you have no choice but to watch is simply ridiculous.

I can't give a fair opinion since I never watched a full episode, but I once tried to sit down and watch it. After about 10 minutes in, I was ready to throw a brick trough the TV. I didn't laugh once and was wondering how this sh*t lasted more than one season. But again, i can't give a fair opinion since I haven't seen a full episode.
