Happy Endings? Seriously? You mean the one with the token gay character who never gets any onscreen action? Sorry, but no.
The best sitcom on TV is The Big Bang Theory.
Just cut the crap and give us a break – that kind of build, at his age or any other, only comes from steroids. Not that there is anything wrong with it.
are you kidding??? Big Bang Theory…lord almighty. Happy Ending is fantastic…I’m still curious to understand what types of millions of people tune into big bang theory. I think their token gay character is one of the best representations of a gay man on tv! He’s not so typical and doesn’t quite fit into the gay stereotypes as I feel sometimes that is kind of shoved in our faces both on tv and in society.
Bill Gates finally decided doing somehing useful? You lowly scum. He has been doing way more in a day than your whole life might amount to.
It must be because I’m a Brit, witty and clever, and have an actual career and education in IT and being a “geek” for all 27 of my years. I find Big Bang Theory possibly the worst “intellectual” show ever devised. It’s horribly trite, badly written, every character is completely mono-dimensional and they don’t carry any charisma and the show has no kitsch or charm value in redemption for its failures whatsoever.
But then, I have an issue with the lack of characters and writing quality in just about all American shows so I’m not the best measuring stick I suppose. The only American shows I enjoy are Simpsons [not so much now, admittedly], Futurama and House [seasons 1-4].
To be fair Simpsons is the best TV show ever, and it isn’t even close, it’s so far ahead of anything, ever that it isn’t even a fair table having it involved.
@bobst: Also this, Lester isn’t even a journalist and he calls Bill Gates, while posting from his iPad made with child labour like a c*nt.
Bill Gates will be remembered long after every single love affair of this sites writers are dead and buried.
@2eo, Big Bang is a one-joke show, just like Keeping Up Appearances over on your side.
I agree with Big Bang. Say what you will about it, but there’s something new to learn every week. Plus, how can you not love Shamy?
Gotta tell ya, I’m lovin’ Becks’ butt.
And I don’t care what anyone says, I find his voice charming too
@viveutvivas: Hey, that isn’t fair. Keeping up Appearances didn’t even have one joke. We’ve made tons of these horribly unfunny one note shows.

I can’t even remember them all, but there are loads of them. Oh look they’re old and they’re riding a bathtub down a hill, again. Joyous.
Big Bang Theory is for people who hate technology, like Dan Brown books are for people who hate reading and need the plot spoon-fed constantly. It’s painful and embarrassing when it’s on and I can’t help but feel a modicum of contempt when people tell me how great it is, because it really isn’t.
@2eo: “Big Bang Theory is for people who hate technology…”
So what? Is there anything wrong with hating technology? It wouldn’t be possible to make a comedy about *liking* technology because humor doesn’t work that way.
But I’d never even heard of Happy Endings before this article, so I’ll check it out.
If this is going to be an American Vs British Comedy Argument, I’ll just pull out Brass Eye and end this conversation early.
@boring: The 2001 “special” is still the funniest satirical news item ever produced.
There isn’t a contest. We have Flying Circus and Q-Spike. They have Friends and Wings.
@2eo: Well you probably hate Seinfeld too! (not that there’s anything wrong with that)
I will in defense of the US point out you piss all over my nations attempts at political satire, Colbert, Stewart and Maddow are genius.
We have Russell Howard and his completely flat stick of “oh look, I’ll repeat the headline in a funny voice then repeat a joke from Family Guy with names of politicians instead”, what a twat.
Except Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister of course.
@viveutvivas: “Big Bang is a one-joke show, just like Keeping Up Appearances over on your side.”
How fucking dare? ‘Keeping Up Appearances’ was my jam. That + ‘Are You Being Served?’
I find those high speed video loops incredibly annoying, whether or not they have hot guys in them
@sfbeast: high speed video clips are ESPECIALLY incredibly annoying when they have hot guys in them!
What network is producing new episodes of Happy Endings? I know TBS took over Cougartown last year. I think that that show is doing well. Happy Endings should do well too.
I love the banter between the gay and straight male characters.
