Don’t waste my time watching any of these shows..
A golfing buddy recommended 2-1/2 Men so Mrs. Theknow and I tried it....for about 10 minutes...I heard the same dialog in the locker room in Jr. High.
And the laugh track these days....Jeez is it overdone!
Just imagine if TV dramas had a GASP! track.
My lady and I became fans of 2 and a Half Men when local channels and TBS started airing older episodes. Something about Charlie Sheen made the show enjoyable.
Since they “killed him off” after the salary dispute and Sheen’s precipitous fall from grace, the show has become completely unwatchable. I watched last week’s episode and the overt discussions of masturbation and even showing a bong on the table in a smoky room was enough for me to sign off the show altogether.
Chuck Lorre makes great shows, and I’m thinking that he’s giving up on 2&HM to focus on The Big Bang Theory which is astronomically more entertaining (pun intended).
If you ain’t got talent go to the toilet.
Simple solution, change the channel.
All you have to do is turn it off. I don’t get TV - watch DVDs. I get to choose what I want to watch and when. The only reason for network TV is sports, IMHO.
I was hoping that 2 Broke Girls would be better, but I can’t get past the wooden delivery. You can literally see every joke being set up from a mile away. It even makes the blue humor sound like it coming from a high school level of comedy.
But the Asian diner owner is still very funny.
Happy to say I haven’t seen these or any other shows since Seinfeld.
And I now regret the time I spent watching that bunch of leftist aholes.
Back in 1999 I put the TV out on the curb (literally) and signed up here.
Raunchy, high schoolish humor is one of 712 reasons I don’t watch TV at all.
IMHO, TV has no redeeming qualities. Which is a shame because at one time it did.
When I see complaints about humor that is best suited to a hyper hormone producing adolescent I start to look at the rest of the culture because the stuff is selling. The media pants after a President that acts like a petulant 13 year old boy. Our schools are run by teachers who are developmentally arrested. We have every reason to believe that America thinks with their hormones more than anything else.
Guess I’ve been lucky. I’ve managed to miss all that “stuff.” I vote with my remote control and my pocket book.
Which is why I’ll never drink Sam Adams Beer or do anything “Disney” ever again!
You may recall that some years back the Sam Adams Brewing company sponsored a radio program which featured a simulated sex act inside a church. I remember the ad guy’s comment about the controversy, it was “pretty neat.” The couple involved were from Northern Virginia and ended up paying a big fine!
Then there was Michael Eisner when he was at Disney. He had nothing but ill to say about Southern Christians. Some very mean, hateful stuff. Disney sponsors gay nights and other events Im not interested in. So now, its no cruises, theme parks, radio or TV programs or Network TV. Ive lots of friends with whom I converse regularly, making my opinions known. No I wont put them out of business but its a good start!
The only time watch See BS is Sunday for the football.....
Most tv is pitched at under thirty types. When I was a kid many moons ago, most shows were pitched at over thirty types. That’s why movies and tv shows are so bad today. The only network show I used to watch, or watch on a semi-regular basis were the CSI series...apart from the Miami CSIs where it became extremely tedious to watch David Caruso put his sunglasses on and then take them off again ad nauseam.
We don’t watch any of those shows. The commercials for them are bad enough.
Not only do I not watch any of them, I resent the promos for them that are run during NFL broadcasts. It used to be possible to have 3 generations in a room watching an NFL game. Towards the end of my grandmother’s life, I hated the low class promos that spewed out of the TV during NFL games. I miss Rozelle. The NFL commissioners since him have allowed the NFL brand to be tarnished.
This is why I now have my APPLE TV. I love it! Choice, control, and satisfaction of telling our local cable service to ‘bleep’ off.
The only sitcom I watch is Big Bang Theory on Thursdays. And that is only because I have a fondness for geeks. :)
I guess I am aging out of the target demographic for most shows. I am 49.
Article’s author isone of the “professional offended” who watches dreck on tv, so they can act offended, and whine about how offended they are.
If tv offends you, put it by the curb on trash day. Quit watching the dreck.
