fusillade762: Boston Legal is still cool, though, right?


Dr. Daniel Jackson, TJ Hooker, Constable Odo, Murphy Brown, and Dan Fielding all working in the same office?

How could it not be cool?

/And the Practice gets points for its final season basically being Boston Legal season 0.

Mugato: Ctrl-Alt-Del: Neither the Honeymooners nor I Love Lucy used a laugh track.

Of course I Love Lucy did. In fact you could clearly hear Desi in part of the laughing.


Live audience laughter is not a laugh track.

The live studio audiences laughter in response to the jokes isn't a "Laugh Track", even if it is recorded

Flappyhead: Ctrl-Alt-Del: Flappyhead: EyeballKid: You know M*A*S*H* got rid of its laugh track because it sounded so stupid, right?

Yes I do know that.  It doesn't change the fact that it was there, same with The Honeymooners, I Love Lucy, Happy Days, all the classic sitcoms.  What makes BBT so special?

Neither the Honeymooners nor I Love Lucy used a laugh track.

Sounds canned to me.  That's all I need to prove it's a laugh track right?

Yes I'm being a dick about all this.  I've just grown tired of this argument popping up.


You can be as much of a dick as you like, but that doesn't change the fact that the Honeymooners didn't have a laugh track - not only was it shot in front of a live audience, it was broadcast live, so no laugh track. I can't speak to the authenticity of any particular youTube clip

And using I love Lucy is an even worse example, since that show used a live audience specifically because Lucille Ball felt she needed to perform in front of a live audience to be at her best

ManateeGag: thanksagainandagain: Also, the Leonard/Penny thing is beyond spent.

oh, and with this, I think they blew their load way too early i the series.  When an entire plot point is based on "will they/won't they" and they do in what, season 3?  then where do you go?  They obviously shifted some of that to the Sheldon/Amy relationship, but even that is getting old.


Need more Margo Harshman.

Mid_mo_mad_man: I don't mind the nose. I would still bang it like a drum


Really? I think she's one of those grown up child stars who were "grandfathered in" because she was a cute kid. If she started out now with that mug I don't think she'd get far. See also the Olsen Twins.

/don't give me any Studman shiat, just talking about Hollywood casting

monoski: Arkanaut: Ha! Even Atheist Communist China doesn't believe in Big Bang Theory anymore. Checkmate, libs.

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.



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.

vudukungfu: Mugato: vudukungfu: Mugato: 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,

Mayim Bialik is no ditz. not a physicist, but a neuroscientist.

Is she one of the writers?

Worse. She's an antivaxxer


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.

should I stop liking things you don't like?



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.
