I noticed "2 Broke Girls" is unwatchable... really, how has that show been on TV so long? I don't expect Shakespearean level acting or anything from a sitcom but holy crap, the acting in that show is freaking awful.

THANK YOU! Was starting to think I was the only one who thought TBBT was a shit-stain on TV. Can't stand it anymore, primarily because of Sheldon. As for 2 Broke Bitches, I occasionally watch it to hate it. And to see Kat Denning Bewbs! Unfortunately, I have to admit to having seen a lot of it, as a gril I was seeing for a while was obsessed wit it.

Big Bang Theory was decent in the beginning, but once the gimmick wore off it became a bit tedious. But that is an American flaw, not knowing when a series is finished. Same happened with Friends. That show went quickly from a comedy to a drama about relationships. There are only 2 shows that managed to remain a certain quality after running for several seasons; South Park and Seinfeld. The first because it decided to address recent events, and the latter because it wasn't really about anything to begin with...

This. Granted, the key to it being great is not watching it as a comedy.

Biggest complaints I see are:

1) It has a laugh track (or, argue some, it is filmed in front of an audience, but it doesn't matter either way).

Is this a problem? I don't think so. I grew up watching shows that had laugh tracks/were filmed in front of an audience and barely notice it. Does it influence what I laugh at? Probably, to some extent, though I do find myself laughing at things the laugh track/audience doesn't. I don't mind this.

2) It makes fun of geeks.

No doubt it does, but I don't think it is as pervasive as people suggest it is. I think the bigger issue is that we do ridiculous, embarrassing shit just like the guys on the show and don't like being shown what we look like.

3) Some of this shit is getting old.

Certainly, but I'd say this is more annoying that show-destroying. They need to find something for Raj to do that doesn't involve  an endless stream of gay jokes. The same goes for Stewart, who has gone from a halfway decent character who appeared every so often to a sad-sack who shows up all the time to depress everyone. One could complain about the ups and downs of Penny and Leonard's relationship, but there has been development for the past two seasons. Same for Shamey's relationship.

4) The women ruined it.

No, they didn't. Integrating Bernadette and Amy has, if anything, improved the show.

I don't know, I just find it tiresome and un-funny. Every joke seems to be:

Penny says something normal/stupid
Geek takes offense and sayssomethingreallytechnicalreallyquickly.
Penny goes 'Buh?'

But I haven't watched it for a long time. They also seemed to get too carried away with Sheldon and just leave the other characters to the side making one-dimensional, tokenistic appearances every now and then, last I watched it.

I think it's just not my style of humour or something.

I have noticed that Minecraft appears to a really pointless game but I can't seem to stop playing it.

This could have been all avoided if Syrion had created a rule for a certain number of posts allowing thread creation. Would stop these damn bugs.

No need as few if any bugs made it through in the past. Or were you referring to newbies instead of spam bots?

I really like how loud my keyboard is, it's a mechanical one, though I'm sure it annoys everyone else in the house.
