Dude, "Oriental" is not the preferred nomenclature. "Chinaman", please.

The list would be a helluva lot longer if that were the only criteria. There's almost nothing decent on TV anymore.

Hey who wants to bet China will allow '24' when it comes back? The Chinese gov't must love that show!

Yes, I think Subby got his shows mixed up in the headline.

My hatred for TBBT was mitigated by the spanking of Mayim Bialik, and her subsequent dressing up as a "Catholic Schoolgirl."

You are free to relocate to free-thinking China anytime. You could also go to Russia, I hear they the type of leader the GOP wants instead of Fartbongo.

The popular U.S sitcom, which features a group of super intelligent, highly nuanced and super high maintenance geeks - and Penny - living out their professional and personal lives in Pasadena, California.Super intelligent? I haven't sat through more than a few minutes of this show but I thought the premise was these guys couldn't figure out haircuts but attractive young women still want to fark them because it's tv.

Fine! Maybe free-thinkers like me will be more welcome there by 2030:

I haven't sat through many episodes either but my first thought would be that I doubt they go through the trouble of hiring actual physicists to punch up the dialog and make the characters sound smart. Correct me if I'm wrong, like I said I've hardly watched any of it.

All I know is that initially I thought that the kid who is almost but not quite Frasier's brother is highly punchable. But then I found out he's gay irl and that would be a hate crime so now he's awesome.

No, you see the great thing about America is that you can have terrible taste in things and not only will you be allowed to indulge in that taste, you will be loudly applauded for it. In fact you'll find Americans generally a little suspicious of those things that attempt to rise too far above the lowest common denominator.

They have staff science writers. One can aso notice that during the course of every season the various equations and charts around sets evolve to show a progression from working on very large physics problems.

They do have a physicist who contributes to the show. For example if you see grease board it's his work.

She's a freak in many other ways, and none of  them good.  She is a prime example that education does not equate to intelligence.

They do. They have a staff physicist and they call people in if they need something for Howard, Bernadette, or Amy.

On Fark we have a large number of people who hate any form of popular entertainment. They pride themselves in being better then the rest of us. They are to cool or hip to watch common tv.

They have a guy on staff with a PhD in physics writing all the stuff on the white boards.  Apparently,  it is some scientifically controversial stuff at times, and other times it is very subtle nerd humor.  He wrote one line for the script, but only one.  He also checks science references in the script.  Read an interview with him.  Sounds like he loves his job.

/History major here, trusting the science people on this stuff.

Well sorry but common TV sucks right now. That opinion doesn't make me cool or hip.

I was a big fan of Breaking Bad when it was on, that was definitely popular. I watch Game of Thrones, that's huge. I sort of watch The Walking Dead. I watched Psych when it was on. shiat, I watch Castle and NCIS (mostly for Becket and Abby respectively). You can't get any more bland and mainstream than those two.

The most popular shiat on TV right now are talent/game shows and reality TV. You can't call someone a hipster for hating that garbage. Everything else is cop/doctor/lawyer shows and it's boring. And the sitcoms are shiat. It's not trying to be cool to hate that crap, it's just having more than 2 brain cells to rub together.

Hannibal is awesome though. It has one more season, tops before it gets the axe. That show does not belong on NBC.

A leader with some balls? Who doesnt want that? Barry is simply outmatched. I hate that he look likes like Putin's biatch and that he looks weak. But you guys wanted somebody like that because you were so sad about the rest of the world not liking the US. Well they still don't like us and they probably dont fear us as much either so I guess you sorta got what ya wanted.

Obviously he means popular TV. Shows that get high ratings. Programs that people watch a lot. Here's an interpretive dance to explain it further. Shiat, you can't see it. Well you'll have to reason it out from the clues given to you.
