  • I'm a massive dork and it doesn't do anything for me, so I'd go with the fact that BBT tries to portray geeks to common people. I still don't understand how it became a ratings juggernaut and the biggest comedy on TV overnight though.

      It's a combination of things.

      1. It's on CBS
      2. Old people love them some CBS
      3. Old people usually have terrible taste

      Now, that's not to say BBT is terrible. Personally, I don't find it funny or entertaining. But my parents ******* love it and never miss an episode. Old people have nothing better to do at night than watch tv.

        You can do that for any show discussed on this forum lol

          True, but the changes you made wouldn't explain why a show is successful. In fact, a lot of shows liked on here often are short lived.

          My point was, old people love CBS and don't really care what's on it, they have nothing better to do but watch.

          • I would've died if Community didn't get renewed. I am very undecided on how I feel about the season finale but I know I would've been greatly upset if the show just ended like that.

            • Brodeur, have you finished BSG yet?


              By the way, where were all you BSG fans back in 2004-2007? I remember posting a BSG-thread after the fantastic season-2 finale and it got like 10 posts and died. I think Comahan was with me, but you are all poseurs apparently.

              • Someone is a poser if they get to the show after it originally airs? I didn't know that.

                    Peefs and myself have slowly been forcing BSG upon people over the past few years. We're the reason that DG, Fenikz, Vidae, Sarf, etc has a new favorite show ever~

                    But yea, its a slow process. Just getting people to look past the name takes a loooooooong time of convincing

                    • It's still not better than The Wire (amongst a few other things).

                          • Firefly's a damn good show, but it's not at an all time great level. I don't see how The Wire is overrated in the least, as it has no real down point and no obvious flaws.

                              Do not compare The Wire to Firefly. Firefly was very good for one season but it never came close to having the same effect on me as The Wire. Even with Fillion and Tudyck The Wire still has better characters and is full of better acting. The Wire is iconic in its brilliance and will go down as one of the greatest television shows ever. Firefly was a flash in the pan that would have ended up being a solid show if it had continued but it never came close to matching the ******* epicness of The Wire.

                              • The Wire was the catalyst for my hate of cop drama. The Wire is soo good people would say, but I watched a season and it pretty much didnt interest me at all. After that no more lame ass cop shows.
