  • I like this video but I will be honest.....literally all of these shows consist of like.....only white time let's add some shows with people of color as main characters. A show you could have done is "my wife and kids" I used to love this show.

  • for me, tbbt was a show filled with stereotypes, sexism and sometimes racism but it was a time to shine for sheldon. all the other characters became less important near the end and they focused on sheldon's character development which i think they did good because i cried so hard in the last episode it was insane ^^

  • I think a great example of a compelling but also funny show is Stranger Things. It's about evil labs, monsters, and other dimensions but the characters and their actors are just so funny and likable it adds a whole new layer to the show.

  • I think Shitts Creek is a show you need to invest in, and start to know your characters more and more for it to be funny. Me and my family watch it while we eat dinner, and we crack up many times a episode

  • If I can get one person to watch Modern Family after reading this comment, it will be worth it. Not one bad episode in over 200 episodes. The characters are so wellwritten im amazed. It's so easy to watch, the characters are so loveable and im guaranteed to laugh every episode. Please give Modern Family a chance.

  • You should have added classic shows taped in front of an audience with sincere laughs. Like "All in the family" or "Taxi" which I think may have had less jokes but they hit harder .

  • I love when shows or movies that aren’t comedies can make you laugh, sometimes I feel like the jokes in dramas and other genres are even funnier because you aren’t expecting to laugh. My favorite recent example is the mandalorian. There are many moments throughout that show that were hilarious and actually made me laugh out loud but it never took away from the action. It’s not supposed to be funny, so when a certain scene makes you spit out your drink, it’s just that much funnier. The opposite can be said for heartwarming stuff in comedies. A good example is the office. It’s a very goofy show but it’s full of heartwarming moments and real life relationship stuff that’s actually relatable. You don’t expect a comedy to make you feel so much, but it does. No one who watched through that show can honestly tell me they didn’t sob their eyes out at the finale, and that shows that they got it right. They made it funny but they gave enough substance to the characters to make you care about them and that’s what makes the show so good. That’s why I hate Big Bang theory so much, not only do I not care about the characters, I actually dislike them so much that I want bad things to happen to them

    •blisse vul••blisse vul•Pred 11 dnevi
  • I think where the comparison breaks down between multi-cam comedies and (especially modern) single-cam comedies is that while multi-cams are almost exclusively episodic shows -- where each episode stands on its own story and there's very little throughline from one episode to the next -- you'll typically see a modern single-cam comedy stray much farther into serialized territory, where characters meaningfully grow from one episode to the next and a storyline will carry from one episode to the next, sometimes even over an entire season. Serialized or semi-serialized shows typically have to spend additional time each episode on narrative, which I'd imagine hampers the "jokes per minute" angle. I'd be interested to see a comparison adding shows like It's Always Sunny or Workaholics -- shows that are single-cam and exclusively episodic -- because I'd guess that you'll see even higher jokes per minute than with something like Parks and Rec or Schitt's Creek. I think that puts the shows on "equal" footing when it comes to format, and would highlight even more how a laugh track slows down joke pacing.

  • Schitt's Creek is more like a dramedy than any of the other sample shows. You can't really just watch random episodes and be into it, you need to be with the story. And the entire show is four huge redemption arcs for the main characters so you won't like them at first.

  • I completely agree with you. Even if i learned to accept the laughs in TV shows, I was never really fond of it, because it breaks the rythm of the story and removes the "reality" Of it. Even for Friends, who is still one of my favourite humor shows (probably because of the memories I made watching it when I was younger), I admit it can become annoying. Nowadays, the humor-centered shows that I love the most are mostly Arrested Development and Malcom because they talk about family, and you learn to become really fond of the characters even if sometimes they annoy the hell out of you -- just like real family. Maybe it's because I grew up in France, and it wasn't really a thing, but I was never really fond of the "nerd guys" cliché. This was my rant lol sorry 😌

  • I get why laugh tracks suck, but I laugh so much more at shows with them than ones without them. I guess I do laugh when I hear someone else laughing even if I can’t hear what they’re laughing at, so maybe it’s just social instinct or something. But sometimes I want to physically laugh more than I want to stare at a show and objectively think it was good comedy. Not that I don’t laugh at all at shows without laugh tracks or vice versa, but idk. I like laugh tracks. I’m 100% willing to toss this into the bad-opinion-bin but yeah that’s my hot take.

  • I like your point on it depends on how you feel for what you watch vs the point of the evolution of television comedies. Maybe people these days have no lives and need to be invested in others problems because theyre bored with thiers vs back when laugh tracks were popular, people had lives and others problems werent as interesting to them so the shallow laugh track comedies were best. Is it social media that's making people so nosy and needing emotional attachment to even be entertained anymore?
