I did a search for this, and still couldn't find a thread on [b:03799db4a3]The Big Bang Theory[/b:03799db4a3]. If there actually is a thread for this, please merge them.

It's a new comedy airing on CBS which premiered last night.

Did anyone get a chance to see it? Did you like it?

I really hope it doesn't get picked up by one of our networks. It didn't make me laugh, which I'm pretty sure is what it's supposed to do.

I've just noticed that it rated better than How I Met Your Mother over in the US and I hope that they don't continue to gather that large of an audience because it would dissapoint me.

What could you expect from this show? Well it's not exceptionally bad because for a mainstream American sitcom to be bad is not exceptionally anything, it's the normal thing. But you get the point, it's bad, I wouldn't recommend it to anybody who considers themselves big on television and especially sitcoms. Oh and by the way, the woman in the show is AWFUL, sorry.

Thumbs down, don't watch it.

Channel 9 actually picked this one up, in a sheepish attempt to try to get younger viewers back to the network, as that's what the advertisers want.

But I wouldn't worry about a thing! It won't rate to Nine's ''standards'', and they'll replace it with repeats of CSI and put it on at 3pm everyday in summer 2009.

So for you, it works out perfectly.


For me it doesn't!! :P

So I'm going to continue downloading it. I know you said you didn't like it, disagree, didn't make you laugh, disagree, dislike the lead woman (Kaley Cuoco), total disagree :P, but I'll keep downloading.



Oh and just for general information it'll premiere on Nine in February from what I heard.

I really enjoyed it and laughed quite a bit actually.

It was a big surprise as i went into it with very low expectations.

I *really* liked this show... when I thought that I wouldnt! :D

IMO it has great potential as a 'little' comedy program... definately better suited to say, 7 or 10 than 9... but at least someone picked it up.

:thinking:

Well I guess I'm the only one a bit sick of sitcoms, or specifically sitcoms of this style. I even tried to get into Back To You, average at best I thought.

I'm suprised people liked it... Can I ask what you liked most about it?

Yeah, I'll stick to Curb, I think.

Which, by the way, is on FIRE this season. :D

I liked the way some of the jokes seemed almost cringe worthy, yet i strangely felt myself laughing at them.

It seemed to feel different from other sitcoms.
