The Problem With The Big Bang Theory…

Yeah, I like how this writer explains how TBBT’s humor relies on a sense of superiority to the main characters. It’s mean. I particularly enjoyed how he later contrasts Sheldon with Abed from Community and how Abed’s neuroses are celebrated rather than ridiculed.

“But this specifically is not my main problem, lazy humour is one thing but cruel humour is quite another. If you watch, really watch an episode of The Big Bang Theory and pay attention to when the audience laughs it soon becomes clear that what they’re laughing at. What Chuck Lorre wants us to find funny is not the jokes which the characters are making, it’s the characters themselves.”
