I laugh and chuckle at various parts of the show but I wouldn't consider to be the greatest show ever. I think it is because I come from a different background and simply a different era of "comedy". What do you guys think?
Oh, sure I hear you. The Big Bang Theory may not be the greatest comedy of all time. Nor does the show appeal to the masses. Still, if you tune in and get a laugh or two, the show serves its purpose.
You do make a valid observation, as I totally agree with about how comedy has evolved in the world of television. I think, sometimes the writers push the characters and content too far in some off color jokes and get a little degrading with generalizations. Still, if I am looking for a diversion, I tune in and get a a good laugh.
