The Big Bang Theory is, by and far, the worst show on television that’s somehow managed to pull in enough viewers every week to also make it the most watched comedy currently airing. I could sit here and give you an in-depth analysis on why the show is so bad, on why the jokes are neither jokes nor funny and how having a laugh track is a one-way ticket to having people assume your audience is too stupid to know when to laugh on their own, but that would be a lot more work than I’m used to doing. Instead, here’s a prime example:
I’m sure we can all agree: that was awful.
But there’s hope in sight, as the possibility that The Big Bang Theory could be nearing its final season is approaching fast. Speaking at the MCM London Comic Con, Kunal Nayyar, the actor who plays Raj on the sitcom, said that season 10 could potentially be their last season:
“Look – next season, as it stands on our contract, could be the last season of Big Bang Theory…
“To be completely honest, I know people are gonna want to know what happens after season 10.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen.”(via)
Unfortunately for us, many television shows aim to have a movie once the series ends as a final way to milk on what was once a popular money making machine. Fortunately, Nayyar doesn’t think this is feasible with Big Bang:
“I mean it’s a very difficult format to do for a movie, because you know we shoot in front of a live audience, a live studio audience, with four cameras,” he said.
“So unless the movie was a two-and-a-half hour sitcom version of The Big Bang Theory, I don’t think we could ever actually do a movie.”(via)
Agreed – if they did a movie it would just be a blatant grab for cash. Plus we don’t need a Big Bang movie, because it’s not like we needed the show in the first place. There are enough comedies on television and in theaters right now that are complete crap; we don’t need to be actively adding to that list.
