I don't really know how I feel about TBBT. I mean the 'by nerds, for nerds' thing is way far off. But at the same time how many sitcoms' casts are not generally dysfunctional (from the US anyway, dunno about the rest of the world)? I think it works okay when one of them (usually Leonard) plays the relatively well-adjusted one, or when Sheldon is being especially weird and the others look smooth in comparison.Vault101 said:if its actually trying to apeal to nerds (which it is in a way) then its a very pathetic effort...the secodn I heard about it I could see it for what it was..this was a "durr hurr nerds" show and to see it as anything else kind of baffles me, its no different to alot of mainstram shows and no amount of "science jokes" would change that
but yeah...don't want to derail this thread
....or mabye we do!
to be fair about the Amy charachter I think it was less "this is a nerd girl" and more "what about a female sheldon?" which I ashamidly amit.....is kind of funny
Really though, the sub-par (or maybe par as far as sitcoms go) writing and terrible nerd stereotyping don't annoy me nearly as much as the chosen attire of The Jewish OneTM.
