It's probably the same people behind it, since no one ever seems to learn a lesson in Hollywood.

Inspired casting of Sheldon's mom, though.

On Big Bang, she's been played by Laurie Metcalf.

On Sheldon, she'll be played by Laurie's real-life daughter, Zoe Perry.

I tried.. I really really really tried hard to sit and figure out why Big Bang Theory gets all the ratings it does.. And.. Again.. I tried.. I gave it more effort than I ever should have..  I even tried it on Saturday afternoon when absolutely nothing is on TV..

And... I just... I can't.. It's farking terrible television.. It's on par with Two Broke Girls.. Again.. Another show I can not for the life of me figure out why it gets actual ratings.. Let alone good ones..

I haven't watched the show in ages so maybe I'm wrong. But I don't see any of those characters as being interesting or compelling enough to really warrant in-depth exploration of a backstory. They were nerd caricatures back in 2011 or 12 (or whenever it was I stopped watching). I guess they're going to milk the desiccated corpse of the Sheldon Show until it's nothing but dust.

My 86-year-old mom loves both those shows. And "Mom" and the new Tim Allen thing.

The complete lack of self-awareness about how old that particular stupid buzzword is and the idiotic idea that it was somehow invented for his show is... actually pretty much how I expected most of the actors on that show to be in real life.  I mean, they've portrayed academics for a decade without managing to learn a single damned thing about them, so... the refusal to read a farking book etc is strong with that bunch.

Let's not say things we can't take back.

At least the Big Bang Theory has somewhat of a plot in between the gags and sex jokes. I've tried watching Two Broke Girls a few times and I just can't anymore.

I bet they'll be dumb enough to put it on a night other than BBT, too.

Seriously, has there ever been a prequel tv show that didn't suck? Enterprise was mediocre for the most part, can't say it was ever exactly good. That's the only one I can think of that was even that okay.

Five years from now they'll start airing a show starring Howard's daughter, who will now be in High School, balancing her nerdiness with desire to be a cheerleader.

I will admit I did watch the show, once in a while, but then in 2014 I recycled every single tv I had, and went without regular viewing of things for a few months, after jtv decided to go away and just stick with twitch.
I recently got a used one and really tried to give it a go, but..... yeah . It seems I just am not into sitcoms anymore. Oh well. Well, I will still watch an old britcom or corner gas or trailer park boys, but not bbt.

Gawd I can't stand Big Bang Theory. Had several people tell me years ago that I gotta watch this "hilarious show". I've watched it 3x...not one funny moment. It's like older sitcom humor...the writing is terrible.

I have WATCHED every episode of Two Broke Girls, but I have yet to turn the volume up to listen to a single episode.

All things considered, I've accepted the last seasons finale as the final episode.
Everything came together enough and I've spent 20 years waiting for a conclusion.
In my head,  Dany and her fleet get wiped out by a storm, and she has a more shaggy dog story than Shaggydog.

I never watched the show until about four months ago when I started watching it in reruns on TBS. The show is frickin' hilarious. What's with all the hate about it?

It's apparently the Amos and Andy of nerd shows. Basically, guys who love guffawing at the stereotypes of Trailer Park Boys get really whiny when the stereotypes are aimed at their general direction.

That said, the prequel doesn't sound very good. There are already a lot of shows about spazzy kids.

The older shots are of Jason Alexander, because that character is a young George Costanza.

For some reason, my 4-1/2 year old son LOVES BBT.  He insists we watch an episode every night before bed, and loves yelling out the BANG at the end of the theme song. It makes him happy, and while it is largely banal, they have some very funny episodes and seem to be getting batter every season

I saw Jim Parsons on Broadway a few years ago.  He actually can act.
 
2017-03-14 08:52:54 AM  
We already had Malcolm in the Middle and it eventually gave us Breaking Bad. That is a pretty high bar for this show to reach.
