    Does anyone watch this show. I personally love the show as (being a bit of a geek myself) I get most of the jokes that would fly over other peoples heads.



    My favourite line from the series would have to be this one.



    So, anyone that has an opinion of the show, post in here and tell us what you think.

    When it started I hated it, it felt like they were trying to make a joke out of people like my friends. But watching some later ones they're really funny, I don't know if it's that it's changed to laughing with them rather than at them, or maybe I just didn't give it enough of a chance in the beginning but I've enjoyed the current series [​IMG]

    I quite like it. Its funny, there tends to be a varied series of events, and the episodes are sprinkled with jokes and references only a nerd could get.

    Oof. I tried. First, i HATE canned laughter. I really don't like any shows with audience laughter, canned or otherwise.

    Also, it feels like they're trying too hard. It's like NCIS with Abby (the goth chick). They purposefully make her wayyyyy too "different."

    I don't like PEOPLE that try to hard, so i really don't want it in my TV shows :TheMoreYouKnow: [​IMG]

    I like the show for nothing more than the comedy and most of the nerd-world references.

    I mostly love it because of the many references I see. I tend to watch it when I get a chance.

    love the show too, thought theres a lot of references that i don't get (due to not being a star trek, stargate, physics, math fan and not being american)
    i still watch it every week and always have a great time [​IMG]

    This show annoys me to no end. My mother is crazy about it though. It's just cockamamie banter on and off. And these so called geeks are ridiculous. They're dorks, not geeks.

    The IT Crowd is a gazillion times better, as far as geek comedy is concerned.

    The best bits of all worlds, in moderation [​IMG] Not quite as bad as they exaggerate in the series, but it still hit a little too close to home for my liking at first.

    No, you're wrong.
    IT crowd was something good. You didn't need to know about Star Trek and all that jazz to enjoy it.
    Best thing that hit Channel 4 imo.
    Katherine Parkinson is one bad ass actress.

    Before going off-topic.
    I watch The Big Bang Theory sometimes.
    Mostly for the intro theme song and Kaley Cuoco because I loved her in 8 Simple Rules.

    I remember one episode where Sheldon was playing Mario 64 on a "poorly coded N64 emulator"(as quoted by him) while hearing actual sounds from the game, major points for that !
