    TBBT. Friends is not funny.
    You two need help.

    Friends man, friends is hilarious! It's such a classic. Too tired to describe it but it's great okay.

    I did enjoy TBBT in it's first couple of seasons, but now I find TBBT's laugh-track weird af. Sheldon raises an arm --> *laughter ensues*. Da***.

    I agree, TBBT is just full of references, it's as if they use a thesaurus to write the show and that's the entire 'joke'. The characters could just say 'green lantern,' 'star trek' or 'nintendo 64' and then a laugh track will ensue. What is funny about that?

    When my brother is watching it I ask him what's funny about it. He say's it's the way Sheldon is, I just don't see how that's funny at all. 'har har har he said some words I don't understand!'

    This is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mQD_Wd6Ajo

    Someone please explain the first two 'jokes' in that clip.

    TBBT is horribly repetitive, not nearly as enjoyable, just the same running gags throughout the series and knee jerk humour.
