Yeah no Big Bang Theory is for idiots
The sooner you realize that The Big Bang Theory doesn’t even understand the so-called “geek humor” that it’s trying to portray, the sooner you stop being a worthless piece of shit for liking The Big Bang Theory.
I watched one episode from start to finish. Almost every single “geek humor” joke was either just referencing “nerdy things” that most people also have an interest in, anyway (see: Star Wars, particularly the main characters; a Spock reference), or completely making things up that sounded like they were talking about something “nerdy.”
Here’s the thing: there is no comedy show on television that requires any level of intelligence to follow and enjoy. If there was, it sure as fuck wouldn’t be on any of the major broadcast networks, because they’re not going to waste production money or primetime slots on something only 5% of their retarded audience will understand, anyway. That’s just poor business. An actual “The Big Bang Theory-style” show would exclude a huge amount of people and include a lot of in-jokes that most viewers wouldn’t understand. It would be a niche show with a niche audience, and it wouldn’t make a lot of money.
It’s the same reason that Wreck-It Ralph wasn’t a full-fledged love letter to gamers young and old. It still had to be a cheesy, typical Disney family film, because they didn’t want to totally exclude the little sister or older brother that doesn’t play games, but got stuck going to the movie, anyway.
I’m not saying a show/film/whatever couldn’t exist and be seen by millions of people, I’m just saying that a large production company won’t be what makes it happen.
I put way too much thought into a stupid Facebook screenshot post.
