It's shit. I may bend on the originality but that just makes it original shit.

What sort of stuff would you like Phil - what would you say was original and really funny? Obviously humour is subjective.

Celebrity Juice!

To be honest there aren't that many great sitcoms any more. Usually panel shows are where the real humour is to be found on TV now. Big Bang Theory still gets an uproarious laugh out of me from time to time though !

Seriously though, you just compared that to spaced. You like TBBT and you think Spaced isn't funny and possible just marginally original.

Honestly, have you even watched it? I find it completely insane.

Well my daughter loves TBBT, so I gave it a go when she was here and she was in stitches every thirty seconds. Meanwhile I, a regular old twat who loves a good comedy, was wondering how the fuck people manage to get employed writing for the show when monkeys with typewriters would be just as fucking funny and how the fuck is it globally popular? What the fuck are people doing watching this fucking thing when they could be bleaching their fucking eyeballs which would give exactly the same amount of pleasure?! Why hasn't everyone involved in commisioning, writing, producing, starring in, editing, directing, casting, set design, costume design, and anything fucking else that goes into getting this piece of shit on telly been taken outside and TORTURED by EXPERTS on TORTURE for at least a MONTH, which is what watching it for 24 minutes felt like to me?! Why? WHY?

Here's some 'popular quotes' from The Big Bang Theory, taken at random by madly scrolling my mousewheel and stuff. Although the next bits would've been just as funny if I'd smashed the keyboard with my cock rather than copy/pasting from some shitty fucking fansite.

Amy: Jewelry?! Sheldon, you are the most shallow, self-centered person I have ever met! Do you really think another transparently manipulative- ohh, it's a tiara! <----this must be written by the same people who wrote that fucking Disney thing with the girl who is a secret popstar I'm not looking for it fuck you you know what I mean. It's meant for kids aged about 7 or 8. They don't find it funny, particularly, but there's a laugh track there which gives handy tips on when to laugh and when to stay quiet.

Howard: Why should I do something nice for you?
Sheldon: To go to Jewish heaven.
Howard: Jews don't have heaven
Sheldon: To avoid Jewish Hell?
Howard: Have you met my mother? I live in Jewish Hell


WHAT?! FUCK YOU!

Howard's mom (HM): Howard it's the phone!
Howard: I know it's the phone ma' I HEAR THE PHONE!
HM: Who is calling at this ungodly hour?
Howard: I don't know!
HM: Well ask them why are they calling at this ungodly houer!
Howard: HOW CAN I ASK THEM WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU!?. *on the phone* Hello?


Fuck me this is the scene from Pulp Fiction where Eric Stoltz who plays Lance the heroin dealer has the exact same argument with Rosanna Arquette who plays Jody (?) his wife except that scene was fantastic and made sense and in this scene it's FUCKING RETARDED! FUCK YOU!


[Leonard and Amy are sitting alone at their table at a wedding reception]
Amy: Would you like to dance?
Leonard: [depressed] No, thank you. I'm not really much of a dancer.
[long pause]
Amy: Not exactly winning any trophies as a conversationalist either.
Leonard: I'm sorry. The bride and groom seem happy.
Amy: Why shouldn't they be? They have a feverish night of socially approved copulation ahead of them. In some cultures, we'd stand outside of their bedroom cheering as they achieved orgasm.
Leonard: That sounds like a late night, and I have work in the morning.
Amy: [fed up] Leonard, you may not have noticed, but I am being a delight here. And you're not holding up your end of the evening.
Leonard: I'm sorry. This wedding just reminds me of my kinda-sorta-girlfriend 9,000 miles away.
Amy: I have a kinda-sorta-boyfriend who's playing with a model train right now, you don't hear me bitching about it.


What the fuck does any of this mean? Which cultures have a fucking party outside the bridal suite while the bride and groom fuck themselves silly? I mean, they don't do that any more, they get pissed and fall asleep because they've had sex hundreds of times already and they're fucking tired a wedding is a long fucking day. Sex is the last fucking thing you want. But forget that for a minute. Which fucking cultures cheer and applaud people having sex? NOBODY DOES THIS. Oh my boyfriend likes model trains and any man who likes model trains is obviously sad as fuck BOO FUCKING HOO.

I mean, maybe you need to see these in context to get the effect but honestly it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference and you'd only feel sad afterwards. Don't put yourself through it. I mean, you shouldn't (and probably didn't) read any of this post and that's no bad thing.


TL;DR: FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


edit: and having read that last quote again, you just fucking KNOW where the laugh track kicks in without even seeing the fucking scene. Predictable, unintelligent, American SHITE. Fuck.


FUCK!

Strangely, I like TBBT quite a bit, but found Miranda to be pants. Each to their own. Oh, and never watched Spaced so will now gracefully withdraw from the fight.

Don't bother if you've a similar sense of humour to me (which I think you have) you won't even crack a smile at it.

Yeh Miranda is shit.

Yeh Wu I've watched it. I only watched one episode till you and Sticky started saying how good it was and since then I've watched another three episodes or so. I wouldn't say I can't STAND it, but it doesn't make me laugh or even smile. I ended up just playing it on my PC whilst having a bash on SimCity.

It doesn't always make me laugh.. yet it's funny as fuck. In fact, some of the gags in it are so hilarious that they get a full nostril exhalation at best.

I've never been one for laughter, if I'm honest. Mostly just anger.

Bitter... twisted... anger.

Oh I thought it was meant to be funny but if it's just about rage. Oh-kay...

Still don't know how you can say it was unoriginal. Tekken arguments? Fake gun fights? Paintball vietnam? Resident evil speed binges? Ecstacy nights out, sci fi references, comic book shops and so many culture references...if you don't find it funny that cool but to say it's unoriginal is just fucking weird. I genuinely can't think of anything so original in comedy...ever. I've tried too. The only thing I can compare it to is the league of gentlemen.

League of Gentlemen was awesome, but not to everyone's taste. The live shows were even better imho.

I really didn't get League of Gentlemen, but so many people have told me how ace it is I might have to give it another look. I hated the few episodes I saw, but I didn't see the opening episodes so maybe that swayed me the wrong way.
