Can't that be applied to any sitcom? from Fiends to Seinfeld? actually, most comedies these days rely on referential humor. BBT simply does these for a part of the audience that 5 years ago always saw their representatives doomed to support cast to appear once every season.

If you actually expected anything more, than you really got the wrong show, buddy.

lol blind fanboyism.

the ones you mentioned use pop culture in their references, most sitcoms do actually.

also its the worst show ever

why is there a laugh track after he says he's playing a game on a poorly coded emulator. where's the humor in that

is that common to you play games on a staircase?

sure. that ain't the funniest joke, but you can see why some people would find if funny. specially people who don't make the habit of playing games wherever they go.

"normal people" find it stupid. and stupid is funny.


they don't use references anywhere as much as bbt does

yes. but they use quite frequently.
"Nerd Humor" is mostly based on referential humor. check XKCD for instance. of that "Pi/I" joke.

Seinfeld actually got the whole "superman appears on (almost) every episode)" and they actually did a whole episode on the "Bizarro concept".

that is nerd for you. because how most of the world view us, we actually enjoy when our stuff get used on mainstream.

without those jokes, BBT wouldn't be any different from any other show there is.


granted, Friends were a bad example. the closest thing that come to my mind is the crossover with mad about you (which crossovered with Seinfeld, mind you).

BBT is a show is centered around nerds. and, for the first time, they actually tried to create believable ones.
I mean, even sheldon, who is the "uber geek" ain't shown like someone who speaks leet all the time.
(I think they dropped the ball on having him like Ubuntu, but that was probably product placement).

the fact that comic book moves and games made "nerd culture" cool helped a show like that to be viable.

you, "normal people", can finally see a show that shows the world from our point of view for a change.

before that, the best thing we had were "the revenge of the nerds"... a great movie btw (gotta see ti again some of these days).

Yeah, but Superman always appeared in the background, and the Bizarro episode wasn't a cheap joke at nerds' expense, it was just a goofy look at, well, a Bizarro version of our characters.

really, BBT ain't cheap jokes on nerds expenses. the screen writers actually did their homework.

that Mariah Carey video that she did to try to ride the "nerd love" wave is.

you see.. that's the deal...

let me give an example (actually, one that I've mentioned already)




do you find these funny?


well, Nerds do. for 2 reasons:

1) The Joke itself

2) And inside joke that says : "Math jokes: You don't know what is worse: to find it funny, or that you understand why its is funny"


So, when they decided to do a show around "nerds", that kind of stuff is "not impossible, its inevitable"*.

and, and i say this as a nerd myself, they are doing a good job "dumbing things down" without disregarding who the characters are supposed to be.  (the ubuntu thing for instance).

So yeah, even tough you guys might love the little relationship troubles between Leonard and Penny, or Sheldon Quirkies, or Wolowitz trying to hump every female on the show ,the 75% nerd jokes are what separate the show from the rest, and is actually what made it viable on the first place.




*can you guess the reference here, Mr. Anderson?

yeah i'm glad seinfeld referenced superman, he's so obscure and nobody has ever heard of him. finally some mainstreamery for clark kent

I laughed at Kyptonian skin cells...

I mean nothing's wrong with anyway the punchline is delivered and what they use. Some people like the use of references in jokes, some don't. Some would except the humor of Beavis and Butt-Head, though it has pop-culture references, but not like BBT.

and what If he said "I'm checking my e-mails"? do you think it would be funnier?
the "poorly coded emulator" was simply to state exactly what he was doing. the sentence don't have "funny" outside the fact that he was on a staircase.

ugh
Thank you for proving my point.

Because Jerry ain't doing a nerd show. however, he still did some jokes, didn't he?

Not superman. Bizarro. a concept created inside superman comics that, even these days, only Comic book fans are aware of it.

if he wanted, he could used references to the mirror world from the original star trek. almost every comedy show uses it at some point.

references to Superman, Batman or Spiderman entered mainstream realm decades ago.

And what have I been saying all along: nerd humor depensds a lot on referential humor.
to dismiss it as garbage is simply because you don't get the joke.

I know the feeling. Its the reason I stopped watching Brazilian television.


BTW, Since we mentioned it, I always considered you to be "Bizarro Tony 3rd".
and every post of yours confirms it.

Oh, Sheldon's theory is wrong.

Flight ain't a feat of strength. is actually derived from a  kind of Kryptonian telekinetic personal force field.
otherwise, he wouldn't be able to float.

Thor's flight, on the other hand, is a "feat of strength".

if your premise of humor relies heavily on referencing things that you hope your audience might get then you're not really funny

seinfeld does not rely on referencing anywhere as much as bbt does, which is something i said several posts ago

difference being that the bizarro deal was basically explained in seinfeld while in bbt it would be a bizarro namedrop followed by a laughtrack

that's because they're mainstream due to media outside comics. referencing them is not exactly obscure

i get the jokes and i don't find them funny. i know about roms and emulators and super mario 64. does that mean i have to find that shit funny? no
