    ...what are your thoughts? Did you actually learn anything from the series? Did it teach you anything about nerd culture or human behavior or did you relate to any character?

    I learned that many people still think laugh tracks are needed.

    I interpreted the character Sheldon as being the villain of the show, though a very lovable villain who makes slight character progress. On the times that I related to him, it reminded me that at times, I can be a whiny narcissist myself. The show I related to the most was when Sheldon was having terrible problems trying to decide between owning a XBox One and owning a PlayStation 4.

    I learned stardom, like life, no matter how successful, comes to an end.

    The show never hooked me. Reminded me of Seinfeld which I found equally lame.

    Eh, I'd personally say it was deeper than Seinfeld, but still not deep enough to have watched and followed for X seasons, overall.

    Only 2 shows I really ever watched.
    Two and a half men (with Sheen) and my favorite was SOA(Sons of Anarchy). I didnt really watch much TV.

    I remember the one where I think Debra chewed Raymond completely out, then he turned to face his mom for comfort, and his mom slapped him too.

    That show made me develop an EXTREMELY acute sense of second-hand embarrassment, good Lord I can't even watch some of the episodes now because of it

    I don't know if I would call it a "laugh track" when performed in front of a studio audience. Unless they had a cue for the audience telling then when to laugh. I wonder how retakes worked.

    You mean to say it doesn't have a laugh track?
    That's odd....the laughing all sounded so perfunctory
    & on cue, even for the lamest jokes. It sounded like
    Gilligan's Island.

    Nothing clever to say about the show. I really enjoyed it and kinda sad that it's over.

    The power of an audience. In fact audiences are usually warmed up ahead of time so that when the comedy starts they are already in a laughing mode.

    An audience is often the best way to judge comedy and to know how long to pause in one's delivery. The Marx Brothers knew this ages ago. They would practice their bits for movies in front of live audiences to know the timing for the film itself. So even though there is no laugh track there are natural pauses for the laughter that the film caused.

    I didn't know it was still going, frankly. I enjoyed it, thought it received a lot of unfair criticism, but honestly I kind of just lost interest in it.

    True, that show was actually funny (which as far as I know, is a requirement in the genre of comedy)
