Geekiest Sitcom on TelevisionOne of the problems with TV today is the fact that there are nearly no 30-minute sitcoms on the aire any more! The Airwaves seem poluted with reality television, Hour long Dramadies, or Serials! It’s been several seasons since a REAL good thirty minute comedy has been on. That’s why when I first heard about the Television show “The Big Bang Theory” being aired on CBS, I was beside myself with exitement. The premise sounded good, and the thought of being able to just sit down and spend a mindless half hour giggling to myself in front of the television really made my week.

So, then then the first episode came on. I actually did enjoy it, I enjoyed the second one even better. Did I love it? No, but it’s a sitcom. Watch one episode, forget to watch it next week and you won’t find yourself lost on some intertwining plotline..It’s mindless fun! However, the majority of the characters are for lack of a better word “Geeks” or “Nerds” and a lot of their dialog uses large geeky words, which tends to go over the head of their ditzy blonde neighbor, and a large percentage of the average sitcom watching population. Could this hurt it? Quite possibly. However if they tone the geek-speak down a knotch I think CBS might have a winner on their hands with this original take on “Neighbor-Style” sitcoms.
