Second, I love how the show flirts with the stereotypes, such as the dumb blond, but doesn't quite go there. Through the entire hour I laughed as many times as you've spoken while reading this review,zero. I love this show, but the plot can be a little bad sometimes. The two geeks have two friends that are even geekier. The scripts are filled with scientific references some people might not understand but they are very witty. Humors are not 'so' funny, and they are overloaded with scientific babbles. The identity of each character is not defined yet, but this is obvious as the series is in its infancy.
With a bunch of new and very lame shows debuting, it's good to see something worth watching! All the references made in this show are not only bland, shallow and forced, but also painfully unfunny as well. The foursome spend their time working on their individual work projects, playing video games, watching science-fiction movies, or reading comic books. Maybe it's just me, but I don't get this show. One person commented saying in 5 minutes of Arrested Development they get more laughs than they get in a season of Big Bang. Having worked in Information Technology for over 25 years, I can see a lot of myself and my friends in Sheldon and Leonard.
Wolowitz and Leonard are the gems in the cast,in my opinion. I am a geeky physics student myself, yet, I have nothing in common with any of the characters or the things they say. I do agree though that they should lose the laugh track - annoying, but not enough to make me stop watching. This is one of my favorite shows, just next to House. Good show and I hope it lasts as there are very few comedies on Television now that can actually make me laugh. I hope they will continue the show though. Many of the jokes, and I use the term 'joke' loosely, may be smart but completely lacking in humour.
I like the acting and the characters, but the plot is not that well made. The four male leads establish their personalities in the pilot with such ease that it's clear we are watching a very well written and well acted show. When my boyfriend tuned into the premiere I thought the show was going to be stupid. Give it a try if you haven't already,I believe the show will grow over time. Granted she isn't a nerd genius like the rest of the characters, but she is just your average person.
Kudos to the whole cast and the writers. The plot evolves around four incredibly intelligent but geeky physicists who spend most of their free time playing WoW or watching SciFi-series,of course. At least Sheldon is,who to begin with show very little interest in things outside his area of expertise. I just love this show! Is his rude and ignorant behaviour supposed to be funny? Last year my friend just couldn't stop talking about how hilarious and funny this was. Is this the big joke I am missing? Wolowitz is not really the neurotic type and he is also more outgoing than the rest of the bunch,but has somewhat overestimated his capabilities with the opposite sex.
The whole series are based on socially awkward nerds who meet a normal girl and they try uselessly to fit in with society. It's now just another average sitcom which has been dumbed down for the masses quite considerably. Two geeks have a beautiful girl Penny move to the apartment next door. At this rate, the show will probably end with Penny having Sheldon's child to fulfill the most commonly seen teenage fan-fiction. I hope this funny, smart show stays around.
Keep it goin you Guys! Now, I watch it when it becomes available on a streaming service, and, on rare occasion you get a great episode, but it's not worth devoting a weekly schedule and sitting through all the fan-fiction episodes and story lines to get to the good stuff. I hadn't laughed like that in a long time. There are so many aspects of the show I like. I hope The Big Bang Theory is around for several years. Than in Arrested Development you can watch episodes over and over again and still find new bits of comedy that you hadn't seen before. And it's not just that the comedy is written so well - - the timing is dead on! It has a solid future. We need a comedy with wit and heart, and for a change - lovable geeky brains too.
The exaggerated stereotypes are sometimes a bit overdone,but I suppose it's nearly inevitable in a sitcom. How can an entire 5 seasons be focused on that? The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny's social skills and common sense. The laugh track needs to go though. This premise isn't exactly new but the execution is nothing short of brilliant. The Big Bang Theory Season 5 Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper are both brilliant physicists working at Cal Tech in Pasadena, California.
If you can't, it isn't. Some things in the supposedly geeky look puzzles me,for instance would probably their taste in clothes be considered more hip than geeky in real life. This show is a great love letter to nerds, and as such any nerd should give this a try. I found nothing in anything they say that is even even slightly funny. When Leonard came out of his room in his underwear armed with a light-saber, I thought I was going to hurt myself I was laughing so hard. I disagree, I think in 5 minutes of Arrested Development I get more laughs than I get in the entire series.
