Big Bang Theory
by Rufus Sufur
This show is still around and apparently doing better than ever! I caught the first season of it and I liked it, despite its very formulaic and often times marginally funny jokes. However, for some reason I liked it. I guess its probably because despite the show’s shortcomings, I find that I like the characters. Maybe it has something to do with “geek chic”, but I suspect that trend will run its course in due time (if not relatively imminently).
I’ve caught a few episodes on and off over the years, but I would have watched it more regularly if I could stream it consistently in Japan. In any case, I’m surprised and glad to read that the show is becoming more popular than ever. I hope sometime I’ll be able to start streaming it regularly someday (other than on CBS’ website, which I will never remember to go to on a weekly basis) and catch up on everything I’ve missed.
