    Default I Suppose Today Really Isn't The Day To Buy Big Bang Theory... Right?

    Having firmly established once again that Big Bang Theory wants to sell nerds and nerd culture down the river for some pointing and staring by the great... erm... washed, I suppose it's the wrong time to tell you that series one to five of the show are going really cheap on Blu-ray right now.

    ?7.05 a series, in fact. Which is something like three episodes for a pound.

    That's the UK version, which is coded for Regions A, B and C - so it will work on any Blu-ray player but needs importing, either by you or by Amazon on your behalf.

    Anyway, they hate us. So as you were.

    Heh, I know that the click through that link records that they've come from BC. I'd love them to be looking at their stats in 6 months time and realise that they have sold a shit load via this site, in spite of all the negative articles and hand wringing.

    Good stuff, though I don't have a Blu-Ray. Mind, the constant episodes on E4 mean it's not necessary to buy.

    I really do think Bleeding Cool takes the show far too seriously.

    Ditto. And reinforces some of the clichés about nerds being uptight wimps in the process.

    I wouldn't mind if it was actually all that funny.

    Yeah, that's pretty much my major beef with it too. I couldn't care less about how it portrays comic book readers or anyone else for that matter. I just don't care for pretty much anything that Chuck Lorre has created. Not my style of comedy at all.

    (Although Wikipedia does say that he wrote French Kissin' In The USA for Debbie Harry, which I do have a massive soft spot for)

    I nowadays really really hate sitcoms with laughtrack, so I skip the CBS ones by default. I'm also afraid to rewatch Friends.

    If you feel a STICOM is out to "hate you"....you're fucking doing it wrong.

    Wow, the amount of ire directed a damned comedy show that works off stereotypes (like every other sitcom) is HILARIOUS.

    Continue to make their points for them BC...keep it up.

    I'm playing catch-up, so... yesterday I saw an episode with Darlene from Roseanne in it, and she went on a date with Leonard. Who was David from Roseanne! Like a crossover!

    Eh, I like it.

    Who cares how it treats nerds?
