I never watched it much since I don't like sitcoms, but am a bit of a geek (not "geek"). I dislike the show mainly because the moment I start talking about artificial intelligence, chemistry, biology, evolution, computer science, transhumanism, or space exploration/colonizati on I get insipid things like "LOL, you sound like [Amy/Sheldon/Leonard]!"
Yeah, no. I'm trying to talk about something infinitely interesting and incredibly awesome. I am not a two-dimensional character who wants to get a monkey addicted to drugs. The reason I made such a long list of topics is to show just how many conversational landmines I risk stepping on that trigger an annoying TBBT reference rather than a substantive response.
The show is overall monotonous and uninteresting, leaning heavily on stereotypes and broad caricatures... just like any other sitcom.
