    I noticed the other night that Sheldon refereed to a fear of heights as 'vertigo', whereas vertigo is only the condition some people with a fear of heights (acrophobia) experience when they are high up. You can have vertigo sitting on the floor.

    Wow that post was so old, I of course know all that now. My wife has become addicted to the BBT.
    My four year old daughter knows all their full names.

    Love it here. Not sure if it's more for the programme or the fact that there are so many of my teenage TV favourites in it!

    i admit i like it. its not exactly in the same league as arrested development or seinfeld but its definitely better than stuff like two and a half men and everybody loves raymond.

    what would make it a great comedy is if they got rid of the women and just had it about four bitter, lonely nerds. comedies are always better when the protagonists lead pathetic lives

    Do you reckon they ruined Howard's character by giving him a girlfriend? His whole schtick was his ability to creep out women and his hugely inflated self image in spite of this. Now that's all gone and he seems to have no reason to be there any more.

    I'm serious. I don't get Seinfeld. I've never laughed at it. I don't see what's good about it. A moany guy you can't like moans, and his unlike-able but dull friends moan too. So what?

    BBT, despite being fixated on cliches ranging from Jewish dietary requirements (any conversation with Howard not mention them?) to geekdom, at least makes me laugh.

    definitely. they're determined to get all four of them into happy relationships which is a shame but it was inevitable i suppose

    not all of it is great obviously but its far more good than bad and when its very good theres not much better. george costanza could be the best sitcom character ever

    I'm sorry, I just think it's over-rated tripe. Self-absorbed middle class whining. Which might be OK if it was funny, but it isn't. It's pointless. In my opinion.

    Just because I don't like it doesn't mean I'm "trolling". I just happen not to like something some other people like. I could just as easily say that people only like it because the Guardian told them to, and that I'm bravely denouncing the Emperor's New Clothes.

    It's really hard to beat Seinfeld, the last three seasons particularly. It's my joint favourate comedy alongside the Office. The BBT is probably the best 'not great' comedy there is currently.

    I'm more than a bit creeped out by his girlfriend's resemblance to his mother.

    I'm not sure if I should say this, but I think the Office was vastly over-rated. It was just OK at best. I couldn't re-watch an episode of it. And I thought series two was significantly worse than series one. And Extras was dire.

    I'm with you. Everybody raves about it (people whose raves I usually respect) but I always just thought it was shit.

    I've never seen his mother. Do we get to see her?

    I hope not. Maybe she means the shouting voice.

    :D I usually disagree with you on TV programmes, but I think we need to stick together on this one!

    theres a lot to hate about it - jerry seinfeld's standup at the beginning of almost every episode, the bass between scenes, the fact jerry seinfeld cant act, kramer being no where near as funny as a lot of people say he is (although sometimes michael richards could be excellent like when he was putting concrete into the washing machine)

    Yes, the shouty voice is exactly the same. It's also creepy how quickly she's started behaving like his mother.
