I'd take whatever he made per episode to work on that show for a full year.

Celebrities, athletes and politicians are vastly overpaid for what they do. I respect what they do (well, some of them) but I think that for the amount of work they put in versus what the average Joe does for a living, they should be paid somewhere closer to the level of a middle school teacher.

Hell, I think politicians should be called to do their duty for FREE. Let public service be SERVICE, not the road to riches.

And athletes are overpaid no matter how you slice it. They do work hard, but so do the guys at the steel mill or lumber yard, with just as much (or more) risk. If a man can be paid millions to catch a ball, then why does the soldier who catches bullets get a pittance?

Our priorities are all screwed up. We heap too much worship and riches on the least useful members of our society.

A sitcom that made you both a ridiculous amount of wealth is a "hive of oppression." Got it.

"Hive Of Oppression" would make a killer band name. And you could call it "HOO" for short.

Nothin'... I have an unlimited supply.

Blowmonkey: The My Little Pony Killer: AbiNormal: I see where you are confused, they're supposed to be geeks, not hipsters.

Define 'hipster.'

Nobody can, any satsifactory definition would cause the universe to collapse in a singularity.



I beg to differ, not that I can define it well, but it does boil down to a simple thing.


Just because "hipster" hasn't been entered into a dictionary that matters yet, that does not equate it to being undefinable or without definition, therefore any meaning whatsoever.

Hipsters get pompous over the lifestyle.

Geeks will try to outgeek eachother as a laugh, or are competitive assholes similar to hipsters, but their likes/dislikes are still rooted in their actual interest.

Hipsters do not have that barrier. Anything old, supposedly makes them cool, anything obscure, trashy, etc.

That's what makes a hipster. Sure, geeks can be hipsters as well, many are. But liking something obscure because the object or theme or story is cool, that's not hipster. Liking something only because it's not mainstream, is hipsterish.

That's not to say a dislike of mainstream is necessarily a hipster quality either. Sometimes you hear/see too much of a good thing and just get burnt out on it, simple overexposure. it's why pop stars fade out so fast.

Bloody William: Diogenes: Bloody William: ranak: MrVeach: Diogenes: Dr.Zom: Old Chuck sure has a way with words. Dude should write a book.

Penning!

/oops, wrong Lorre show.

The Big Bang Theory is a horrible piece of shiat of a show goddammit I hate it so much AUGH!

Sorry, reflex whenever it's mentioned. It's a farking nerd minstrel show.

Being gay, I often felt the same way about Will & Grace.

I can understand. At least Will & Grace had a "normal" character in Eric McCormack (who, interestingly enough, was going to be John Barrowman until they thought he seemed too straight... which is hilariously awesome), despite the fairly constant depictions of easy stereotypes and the presence of the gay equivalent of Mickey Rooney's Mr. Yunioshi.

The Big Bang Theory pisses me off because it can't get anything about nerds right. It's too easy and too simple, with references to things like Star Trek, Halo, Guitar Hero... you know, the "geek" things that became farking pop culture staples among regular people years ago. If they occasionally made jokes about Warhammer 40,000 or Shin Megami Tensei, they would seem so much more real as nerds and not "safe" Hollywood nerds. You know, nerds who are only awkward for the joke and who make references everyone recognizes.

It wasn't the worst I've seen in gay-themed comedy. But I didn't go out of my way to watch it. That new piece of dreck on CBS, "Partners", is absoFARKINGlutely horrendous. I wonder if that's a Lorre production, too.

Comedy that targets groups is tricky. Mel Brooks did it beautifully in Blazing Saddles. Reiner did it brilliantly with All In The Family. It's a balancing act between mocking the group itself and mocking the stereotypes. While I get a laugh out Big Bang (mostly because of the actors themselves who have made me like the characters despite the shallow nerd portrayal), it certainly does nothing like the aforementioned.
