The Big Bang Theory isn't funny.

Many people seem to like this show. Reruns are constantly on, so I wanted to get into it. I really did.

I watched it for a while and didn’t think it was very funny.
But then multiple people were all “no dude, it’s HILARIOUS! You just don’t appreciate the humor!”  So I gave it another chance.
And another.
And another.
And y’all … that show is bullshit. It has the occasional laugh, but on the whole it is just NOT. FUNNY.
Here is how the standard episode of Big Bang Theory goes:

Leonard’s Heart is Wounded by Something Penny Does

Maybe she gets a new boyfriend, or explains to him that she only sees him as a friend. Or gets jealous that he has a new girlfriend and lets him know that she’s jealous, which makes him think he has a chance, but then it turns out he doesn’t have a chance.

Sheldon Fails to Understand Why Leonard’s Heart is Wounded

Howard Acts All Lecherous
The Indian Guy Gets Drunk and Talks To Women
Penny Tries to Understand Why Sheldon Is The Way He Is

That’s … pretty much it.
Also, have you ever noticed how LOUD the laugh track is?
Well, now you will.
You can never un-notice it once you’ve noticed it.
I do sort of wish it was a live studio audience, though. Then I could do this:

Meanwhile, I guess I'll just have to settle for a phone call and letter-writing campaign.


(and credit goes to my brother for pointing out the volume of the laugh track. I might have stood a chance of tolerating the show until he mentioned that. Now, all hope is lost.)


  1. HAHAHA! I can only hope the laugh track ruins it for more people...eventually I will ruin the show for everyone and they won't play it anymore. Well...that's the plan anyway.

    1. It's as good a plan as any, really. THE BIG BANG THEORY MUST BE STOPPED!

  2. I could not agree more! In fact, I might share this post on my Facebook if that's okay with you! So many of my friends love this show and I just DO NOT GET IT.

  3. I love this post. There is nothing close to funny about The Big Bang Theory. I wish it would burn.

    1. RIGHT?!?!?! We must spread the good word. Fight the power!
      Or something.
      Also, Chuck Lorre's stupid vanity cards at the end of the episodes are really douchey.
      That is all.
