1. The Problem With The Big Bang Theory…


    I’ve been meaning to post something about The Big Bang Theory for a while now but it’s taken me ‘till now to really understand what it is about the show that makes me uncomfortable. I’m not exactly a believer in the whole “only write about the things you like, don’t trash the things you don’t” trend which seems to be plaguing comments sections in negative articles lately, but I wanted to be able to really examine why I don’t like TBBT rather than just slagging it off. My main questions being - Why don’t I like this anymore? Why do I feel uncomfortable watching it? And why do I get so annoyed when I see people sing its praises online? The thing which really sparked this post was seeing a raft of comments on Facebook, below the last round of voting in Television Without Pity’s Tubey Awards, claiming The Big Bang Theory to be “the best comedy on TV”. This made me angry so instead of posting an impulsive comment calling out their bad taste which I’d probably regret later, I decided to really analyse why seeing comments like that made me so mad when previously, although I didn’t really love the show, I’d never considered myself as disliking The Big Bang Theory.

  5. I feel like I don’t get Community. Every week people are like “zomg this is the most amazing show ever made ashdhfhgjg” and I’m just like “oh Donald Glover said something quirky and Abed has a personality disorder. Is that Pete Campbell’s wife?? Meh”. The only thing I’ve laughed at is when Troy said he cried during About A Boy the soundtrack, and even then only because that’s my favourite movie soundtrack. 

    I’ve only been watching since it came back from hiatus but I’m really not impressed so far.


  6. So I don’t know what Community was like before the hiatus (I didn’t watch it), but so far I don’t find it very funny.





  8. I’m going to be watching Community for the first time in 18 minutes. This better be worth the hype, Tumblr.

    POP POP! It’s a find from across the pond! Luke Youngblood recently took a paintball bomb for the team on NBC’s Community as the enigmatic Magnitude, but back in 2001 and 2002, he attended Hogwarts as Lee Jordan in the first two Harry Potter movies.
