    It's definitely one of those shows where you have to suffer through a couple of episodes before you click with it. I remember the first few times watching and I was like "What the fuck is this shit? It's like a 30 minute Dennis Miller astrophysics joke." When it started coming on TBS, I forced myself to watch it one night out of boredom. I made it through two episodes without cracking a smile, but then there was an episode where Sheldon modifies Penny's behavior using chocolate candies as positive re-enforcement. I gave in and let go of my smug sense of superiority, and the following weekend downloaded episodes 1-current.

    I'm finally getting around to watching The Wire. I've only seen the first episode of the first season so far and while it's clearly very well written and acted, I'm not really sure if police drama is my genre. Going to watch a few more episodes though because everyone says it's so amazing.

    Here's the joke, by the way:


    A farmer noticed that his chickens were sick, and called in a biologist, a chemist, and a physicist to help diagnose the problem. The biologist observed the chickens, concluding, "I can tell you there's something wrong with your chickens, but I don't know what's causing it." The chemist took fluid samples from the chickens back to his lab, and returned saying, "I can tell you what's infecting your chickens, but I don't know how they got it." Meanwhile, the physicist had been sitting on the floor, scribbling maddly on several notebooks worth of paper. Suddenly, he jumped up, exclaiming, "I have the answer, but it only works for spherical chickens in a vaccuum."

    A farmer noticed that his chickens were sick, and called in a biologist, a chemist, and a physicist to help diagnose the problem. The biologist observed the chickens, concluding, "I can tell you there's something wrong with your chickens, but I don't know what's causing it." The chemist took fluid samples from the chickens back to his lab, and returned saying, "I can tell you what's infecting your chickens, but I don't know how they got it." Meanwhile, the physicist had been sitting on the floor, scribbling maddly on several notebooks worth of paper. Suddenly, he jumped up, exclaiming, "I have the answer, but it only works for spherical chickens in a vaccuum."

    illuminaughty: The first episode I watched, I was put off a little by it. After seeing a couple more, I started liking it more. Like anything else, it's not for everybody.

    the only tv i have is what bleeds through (cable internet, tv gets some channels)...so no more tivo = the only thing i see is AMC on sunday night at 9 :)

    other than that, i never know when where anything is, so to actually watch it is a bit difficult

    By most accounts, they weren't especially bullied - indeed, the consensus seems to be that they bullied at least as much as they were bullied. Y'know, kinda like in most high-schools, or high-school-like environments like bN, the people who go psycho and blame it on being bullied typically are amongst the biggest bulliers.

    Good for you, then. The show is taped live, so it's not exactly a laugh track, but whatever. I have no idea why you feel the need to do this anon. I don't really care what you like or don't. I just found it stupid that you bothered to use up anonymous comments to hate on a television show.

    I hate the lame-ass ads too, especially the poorly done local ones. That's one reason why I only watch 2 shows on regular TV, otherwise it's PBS. Well, that, and most of the shows I have tried to watch are apparently written by/for morons.

    I didn't own a TV until about 10 years ago, and then I was FORCED to buy one because my then-GF of sorts constantly nagged me about it. (In a NYC accent): "Why don't you own a TV? What's WRONG with you." etc. etc. Fine, I went and bought a fucking TV, a giant monstrosity. Of course, that meant I had to get a VCR and DVD player.

    Turned out to be A Good Deal: she could watch Judge Judy or whatever, and get off my back while I was doing something else, (like playing Unreal Tournament or making GIS coverages) until sextime came around.

    I still have that TV, but now people are nagging me: "Why do you have that old thing? The new flatscreens are eco-friendly! They pick up more channels" etc. etc. More channels of shit? I'll pass.
