mekkab: DeaH: The brother character has transformed into Scapin.

they gave him a pointy beard and a rhinoplasty-gone-wrong?


/[insert guffaws here!]


Yes!

/for you, not because they gave Alan a pointy beard or a bad nose job
//didn't guffaw, but I did snort

machodonkeywrestler: DeaH: carrion_luggage: When you need Charlie Sheen you don't want to admit you need Charlie Sheen. When you don't want to admit you need Charlie Sheen you go to weird stunt casting. When you go to weird stunt casting you hire Kathy Bates to play Charlie Sheen's ghost.

Don't hire Kathy Bates to play Charlie Sheen's ghost. Just cancel the show.

I know you're really reaching for a joke here, but why would they cancel a show that lots of people watch? I will freely admit that I enjoyed the first few seasons. I will also admit that the last few Charlie Sheen seasons were painful to sit through, but the man of our house liked it. I like him, so I would just do other stuff during the half hour he watched. But, this season, I am watching it again.

Yes, it's low humor. There are lots of jokes about body parts, bodily functions, and low human passions. Yes, there is a live audience, but I like live theater, so this does not bother me. The humor in this show is in the tradition of low humor that can be traced back as far as there are plays. I also think a live audience can really energize performer, and people who cannot stand live audiences are on a par with people who cannot stand to watch black and white movies or subtitled movies. In other words, they are entitled to their individual quirks and short-comings, but they are fools if they brag about it as a superior trait.

The little kid has grown into a teenager, so now he is part of a Beavis and Butt-Head clown duo - as the smarter one. The brother character has transformed into Scapin. And the millionaire inventor is not a Charlie Sheen character at all. He is a genuinely good guy, and, oddly a sort of an innocent. The whole thing is very similar to a commedia dell'arte skit, and I enjoy it.

Ate you dense, or have you not seen the commercial he is referring to?


Of course I got the AT&T commercial reference. That was a joke of form to deliver a sentiment echoed by the commercial. Since I started my post with "I know you're really reaching for a joke here," I have to wonder if you're a bit thick in the skull area.

/Totally got your "ate" was an auto-correct error, too. Happens to everyone - no reflection on you.

Having Charlie Harper come back as an unattractive fat old lady before canceling the show altogether is the best revenge Lorne could possibly have.

Of course, he's too greedy to cancel it after this season, but I can dream.

I used to watch TAAHM in its early seasons when there wasn't anything else on, and because I could tolerate it and my wife wouldn't veto the choice.

I watch BBT because I (generally) like it. The first season and an episode here or there have been somewhat offensive to me, but generally I like it. They just need to tone down Sheldon and get a new schtick for Raj.

Always found Ms. Bates fascinating. Now WTF is she/they thinking?

Haven't watched a new episode since they got rid of Charlie Sheen.
Say what you want about the show, the jokes, the plot, the only reason why I watched is because Charlie Sheen is hilarious.

/WINNING!

Lsherm: Spartapuss: Can we agree that both shows are written better than The Walking Dead at least?

I am only continuing to watch that show because one day, ONE DAY, they are going to kill that little kid Carl, and I will be able to die happy.

Also, even though I hated the Sophia subplot, Rick shooting her in the head was a definite high point of the season for me. It's rare that I'll get so pissed at a character who isn't even on the goddamn screen, but that's how bad the writing sucked this season. I openly wished for a little girl to die.

Now that Shane is gone, all they have to do is get rid of Lori and Carl and all is well.


Please someone kill Lori already. I cannot stand that actress.
 
2012-03-20 03:35:19 PM  
I love Maggie, Glenn, Daryl, Andrea and Rick. I really don't care much about what happens to the others. I do ESPECIALLY dislike Lori, the "deer in the headlights" Academy of Acting wants their degree back.
 
2012-03-20 03:43:33 PM  
Kathy Bates would be an awesome Charlie.

Psych is my new guilty pleasure.

I really feel bad for T Dog. That guy has like 3 lines a week. All he did this week was carry the nice white lady's luggage into the big house. The Help w/ zombies.
 
2012-03-20 04:31:59 PM  
BBT sucks because of Sheldon, I want to kick his autistic ass, biggest douche character I've seen on TV in a while. The jokes are also incredibly corny, not very clever or witty for a show about nerds.

Farker#1: Huh, [show title] is still on the air? I had no idea because I don't bother keeping up with widely popular entertainment, even though I read and comment daily on Fark's Entertainment tab where [show title] is discussed at least once every 72 hours.

Farker#2: I used to watch [show title] until [that one character left/ joined] and then it [sucked donkey balls/Lindsay Lohan smelly vagina joke/became worse than Hitler].

[fonzie.jpg]


Farker#3: I checked out [show title] after [imaginary friends] told me I would like it but my tastes are far too refined for the [humor/writing/acting] and so I just watch repeats of [nobody cares].

Farker#4: B-b-but, subjective tastes!

Farker#5: BOOBS. I WOULD WRECK THAT SO HARD. HURR. BOOBIES.

Farker#6: Snarky comment about repetitive threads being repetitive, and if you've read one, you've read them all. Like this thread and this comment.

I think TBBT haters are mostly people who resemble those characters. I went to high school with all those characters, or people who are some amalgamation of those characters. The show is hysterical, and it really takes me back.

You can't make everyone happy all the time, so the haters just need to deal. Why come into a thread like this to complain about a show you don't like? I mean, seriously, it becomes apparent that the reason you hate the show is definitely due to your similarities to the characters on the show, trolling on something you would never bother with if you were like anyone else.

/I would think Wil Wheaton's presence as a guest star would be enough to turn any Farker in favor.

Dude quit being such a baby, if we think a show sucks we should be able to say it. You sound like the kind of person that likes shiatty music artists in that you wish to label anyone who criticizes their legitimately shiatty music a "hater". I also am not a nerd, at least not like those guys, I just like history a lot. I would probably like the show more if I was a real nerd. Just face it, not everyone likes mediocre network sitcoms with predictable and corny jokes and writing.

Because we don't revel in the mediocrity you accept as entertainment? Think about it this way: you accept TBBT as a good show, thus lowering the bar for the rest of us. Better shows get crowded out so hoopleheads like you can chuckle at something that is just barely a step above 2.5 Men. You probably watch professional wrestling, too.

It's actually a good thing that people that people get so defensive about the show because it makes it easy to find farkers who suffer from a lack of mental acuity. Just keep sitting on the couch munching those Cheetos, next year I hear they're putting out a show where a hot chick is married to a fat guy. You'll be set.

Conchetta Ferrell has always been Kathy Bates long lost twin sister to me so it'll be nice to see them in an episode together (even if they're not in the same scene)

I think Camryn Manheim is a closer match.

Of course, Manheim is 20 years younger.

TAAHM is a ghost of its former self. And the ratings are reflecting it. The two most recent episodes each set record low ratings for the series's entire run.
 
2012-03-22 01:06:00 AM  
Charlie Sheen may be crazy as all hell, but even he could see where this show was heading.
