Now, come on you guys, we don't "Hate Watch", we look for the good in every show or movie.

EyeballKid: Mid_mo_mad_man: Let me guess you like community or some other to smart for the rest of us comdey?

I know the internet and texting have made proper spelling irrelevant, but with any intellect-based criticism, I'd suggest a spell check before posting.


LOL.  You sound like Sheldon.

Maestro1701: If you don't like TBBT, that's fine. Blaming the laugh tack for your dislike is just lazy.


A laugh track defender calling somebody out for being lazy. It's downright hilarious, if only I had some sort of audio cue that would allow me to better recognize when a situation is funny and I'm supposd to react accordingly...

Mid_mo_mad_man: How did I know before clicking the link you provided it would be praise for community? That show is boring and painfully not funny. Heap praise on it all you want but TBBT won. Get over it.


Meh; close enough.

"Nerd blackface"
"laugh track"
"Sheldon's autism"
"Melissa Rauch's bewbs"
"You killed 'Community'"

Welfare Peanut Butter: Ah, The Big Bang Theory. Or, as I like to call it, "The Nerd Blackface Show".

My local NPR affiliate did a story about hate-watching and "2nd screen watching" (aka watching TV while simultaneously talking about it online.....sounds familiar) a couple weeks ago. As I was listening, the hate-watch thing sounded so absurd, but then I realized that I'm a hate watcher of "Project Runway". The show pisses me off so much, yet I watch beacuse I love to hate it, and I hate myself for loving to hate it. It's a complete shame spiral.

rugman11: LDM90: I watched 2 seasons of The Walking Dead before I thought, "I'm not even sure I like this show."

What does it mean???

I'm this way with Girls.  It's supposed to be one of the best comedies on television, but it's not really funny and the whole thing is just so damn unimportant that I've not piled up the last four episodes because it's the absolute last thing on my list of things I want to watch.  I think it's just one of those things that the cultural milieu says is supposed to be revelatory but that is just impenetrable to the masses.


Is it shallow and pedantic? Does it insist upon itself?

Digitalstrange: Eh, fark off Bittermitter. TBBT is a cute, harmless show that makes being a nerd a little less stigmatizing even as it caricaturizes it shamelessly.


No.  It's a stupid show, with stupid jokes, for stupid people.

NMTurtlelady: Huh. So that's what it's called. I'm doing that with Elementary. Hate it, but damned if my ass isn't on the couch while I watch and yell at my TV.


I do that too. I was watching, and was thinking "This is farking terrible" the whole time, but damned if I didn't sit there and watch it. Then, the next week, what did I find myself watching? Elementary. I think CBS sends out signals to your brain.

I admit that I started watching after I heard about Sheldon spanking his girlfriend, watched the clip associated with the story, and promptly jerked it to the expression on Amy's face.
