    Hiiiiiii

    So, since Friends was given ze chop, e4 have brought over a lot of different comedy shows to fill up the slots, and I wanted to see how people felt about them.

    ~ Don't trust the b*tch in apartment 24
    ~ The big bang theory
    ~ 2 broke girls
    ~ New girl
    ~ Revenge
    ~ Suburgutory
    ~ Perfect couples
    ~ How I met your mother
    ~ Rules of engagement
    etc

    Personally I loved the first three seasons of HIMYM, but it's gone so downhill
    Enjoying suburgutory so far!

    There's been more then three seasons. Check it out online. It's on like it 6 or 7th I think

    Also, you missed Big Bang Theory!

    Suburgutory is pretty good, suprisingly and I love Zooey Deschannel so I can't not love New Girl.

    Big bang theory is better than all, although possibly on par with how I met your mother. But yeah most of the American imports are over advertised and **** and its called don't trust the bull**** in apartment 23.

    I watch all of those mentioned in the list, except from the last three. They are all awesome shows and cannot wait for the new seasons.

    I love the Big bang theory, new girl and revenge - in my opinion, they're the best of E4's imports.

    I love The Big Bang Theory but the rest I just don't like, I'm not that into that many comedy shows I honestly find the drama shows with the puns here and there funnier tbh e.g. Being Human

    Yeah, I've seen all the seasons of HIMYM, but it's gone downhill, the first three are gold though.

    I wish they'd just cut to the chase and tell us who the mother is already. I hate Ted, even though the show is primarily about him, he ruins it.

    ~ Don't trust the b*tch in apartment 23* (not 24)
    This show was just horrible. it was boring, and humorless.
    ~ The big bang theory
    Overrated, use a lot of forced humour & very repetitive.
    ~ 2 broke girls
    Better than I originally thought it would be. A lot of sexual references which no other show dares use
    ~ New girl
    Very funny, although it can get quite boring watching the same episode more than once.
    ~ Revenge
    Was actually a great series. Interesting, can be hard to follow, more of a drama which is original to e4
    ~ Suburgutory
    Funnier than I thought it would be, looks like it could be a very successful show
    ~ Perfect couples
    This show was just.. wow. I only saw one episode then it suddenly stopped being aired so I can't state my opinion.
    ~ How I met your mother
    I love this show, its funny, although I dislike the main character there's a very sexually active character which can never be a bad thing.
    ~ Rules of engagement
    Great show. Recently started getting into it, its funny and has completely different plots to other shows.

    Exactly what I think. All he does is complain, its quite draining actually.

    If you find it extremely unfunny, then I'd say yeah.. it can be hilarious at time, and then it could be a mood killer aswell

    2 Broke girls is awesome, Kat Dennings is an amazing actress.
    Revenge is thought provoking and different

    These two really stand out for me, i'm not usually a fan of american tv, but i do like these :yep:

    I have tried to watch 'rules of engagement' but switched off after about 4 seconds of that irritating 'English' guy came on. Stereotype much?

    The only one I watch regularly is TBBT.

    New girl completely revolves around Zooey's character, and that puts me off it. She isn't particularly talented or good looking and it feels like she just has a massive ego because she has a TV show to herself.
    HIMYM has an intriguing plot, so I like to know what is going on, but it is not funny at all. It is probably the most unfunny comedy on E4 at the moment.

    Love HIMYM :love: as much as it goes downhill... I'll still watch it to the end.

    Also like New Girl, Suburgatory and TBBT not a fan of any of the others, though admittedly I've not even watched half of them... it might just be me, but for quite a few of the programmes, the adverts E4 showed just made them seem really bad/unfunny, so I never bothered to watch.
