Topic: Anyone with some info?

When is the BBT back again? How long until season 2?

Re: Anyone with some info?

I would guess the same as most other American shows - September(ish)

Re: Anyone with some info?

i hope so... coz its really funny

Re: Anyone with some info?

No dates have been announced yet but reruns are scheduled until 9/15, so I guess it's sometimes after that.

Re: Anyone with some info?

not a lot of good new shows this season, but i agree that bbt is one of the keepers though

Re: Anyone with some info?

I'm usually not a fan of this type of comedy shows, but somebody pointed me to BBT and I must say it's a new favourite!

Re: Anyone with some info?

The Big Bang Theory is one of the funniest shows around. The humor is a bit 'upscale', so I guess it
won't last long. It requires some thinking to get the jokes at times, that's why I love it !
What would make it even funnier would be to get rid of the 'laugh track'. I don't need it to tell me when
to laugh.  And Penny, the next door neighbor is a REAL BABE, another reason to watch.

Re: Anyone with some info?

It's my new favourite show. Chuck Lorre is behind also another one of my favourite shows...Two and a half men. And also Dharma and Greg... He's a genius...

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Re: Anyone with some info?

I do hate the laugh track.. it's the only annoying thing in lots of good shows...! Why do they need to use that?

Re: Anyone with some info?

You have to remember that the laugh track is for all the americans that don't know when to laugh.

It's a known consensus that all 'light-entertainment' shows are aimed at the lowest common denominator in terms of audience intelligence (Certainly in the UK and US).  That being said and without pandering to any stereotypes, the american sitcoms are aimed lower than most - which is hard with BBT as some of the jokes are quite high level.

In short, live with it.!  smile

(I'm sure I'll be flamed for this - but it's true)

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Re: Anyone with some info?

To me, the laugh track isn't a cue to laugh, but a cue when to stop laughing. Without it I'll occasionally laugh through a follow up joke or two. When the laugh track stops, it's time to listen again. I rather enjoy it too, since I watch a lot of shows alone...it feels like someone else is getting the jokes too. lol.

Re: Anyone with some info?

I have no problem laughing by my self.. just laughed my ass of to the latest House episode...

Re: Anyone with some info?

Yeah, there's nothing wrong with laughing alone...but it's not like the laugh track detracts from the show at all.
I find a lot of Brit-coms feel sort of hollow without the laugh track actually...there are exceptions, but it's like when I'm with friends and one of them unintentionally says something totally hilarious, and I'm the only one that gets it. Standing there with a bunch of people that carry on as though nothing happened...kind of like in the clinic parts of the last House ep. They say something so outrageously dumb that it feels weird to be the only one getting it. It worked without a laugh track on House because the joke was all about being the only one to get the humor. In the BBT, it's usually everyone getting the joke except for Sheldon.

Yes, I remember when I was younger, I could not stand background laughter.. but now I'm use to it, so it doesn't really bother me.... but it's still not a good thing.

Re: Anyone with some info?

yeah it kinda suck ther really must think where stupid or something

Re: Anyone with some info?

They probably do.

I can't stop thinking about this quote from Sg-1 episode 200. Mitchell says: -Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment.

wow thet might be the best thing from sg-1 wink

Re: Anyone with some info?

I'm pretty sure I remember reading a study showing that audiences perceive shows as funnier when the canned laughter is included. Its an old study, who knows if the protocols were robust, but I'm sure that's why they persist in including it.

It is probably one of my favorite episodes... the 200th episode that is smile

This one is also pretty good, from the 100th episode:

Raymond 'Ray' Gunne: I'm Christian Bocher. I'm portraying the character of Raymond Gunne, who portrays the character of Dr. Levant which is based on the character, uh, Daniel Jackson, portrayed by the actor Michael Shanks, originally portrayed by the actor James Spader in the feature film.

Re: Anyone with some info?

Oh yes... there are way to many awesome quotes from that episode...

Dr. Daniel Jackson: Who makes a movie out of a series that only lasted three episodes?
Teal'c: It allegedly performed well on DVD.

I so wish there will be more Firefly movies!

Re: Anyone with some info?

hehehe Mxyzptlk good quote man... and yeah i laugh by my self as well no problems with that i believe when ya laugh by your self that shit is really funny big_smile

Re: Anyone with some info?

True.. if you watch a movie or something with friends, you might laugh because they laugh... sometimes you even laugh at them tongue
If you laugh by your self, you know that shit is funny!
