After his friend went on for WAY too long about how the BIG BANG THEORY was ruining his life...

  1. And since 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' clearly speaks for all black people, there is no poverty.

    1. Well if you've only seen one episode, maybe. Poverty is dealt with frequently in the series, in a heavy handed very special episode manner.

    1. Well, except for those of us who ARE the beautiful girlfriend. But I suppose that's irrelevant...

    2. You can be pretty and the girlfriend of someone, but then if you are a geek that follows TBBT, you can still not have a good job and a pretty girlfriend…

  3. "I hate how it misrepresents us as having great jobs and pretty girlfriends"

    As opposed to having a borderline-autistic lack of social skills, especially with the opposite sex; an embarassingly immature relationship with parents, especially mothers; a pathetic obsession with kids' toys and books; a set of bizarre behavioural tics and triggers, almost flanderised into pavlovian dog tricks; and no right not to be unfairly dumped on by anyone bigger, better looking, and/or 'right-thinking' (often at those 'great jobs')?

    Wonder which set of 'haves' gets trotted out on that show more often. Or even matters more.

    Hmm.

    1. No kidding. It's a comedy. Comedies about doctors feature dysfunctional doctors. Comedies about attorneys feature dysfunctional attorneys. Why on earth wouldn't a comedy about physicists feature dysfunctional physicists?

    2. And if the show were about real-life physicists and their everyday lives and jobs, as Penny would say, "It's so boring, how do you not like kill yourself like every day?"

    3. I wonder about all these people who get so bent out of shape over bbt. I would bet that they laugh at other comedies with exaggerated characters, because they think they are realistic stereotypes, but take offense at bbt characters who have just enough recognizable traits to hit home for them.

      And, if they were realistic characters, it wouldn't be a comedy. Comedy is based on exaggerated characters.

      I like today's speaker. He has a more sensible idea about what a comedy is, and how his friend needs to get a grip.
