Do you like sit-coms like Full House, New Girl, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I Love Lucy, Modern Family, The Crosby Show, Family Matters, Friends, ect? I do. But some people argue that they portray life as to be easy, unrealistic and are completely un-relatable. What do you think? Personally, I think that they teach good lessons, and aren't made to be relatable. THEY'RE MADE TO MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH ABOUT THEY'RE PROBLEMS! What's your opinion on them. Do you hate them because of the slight happy-go-lucky lives or do you love them (like me) just for this sole reason? artical against Full House

Some sit-coms are good. Most are terrible.

I think it's that the good ones are less formulaic or at least are able to distract you from the formulaity.

Full House was pretty bad.

Laugh tracks are usually am indicator that something is bad, not always but usually.

It's strange to me when super simple set up punchline combos are actually made less terrible by having an included LAUGH LAUGH LAUGH guide track.

Odd how that works.

Basically, I've never been able to handle it, or find the humor. My roommates are really into Big Bang Theory. I started watching with them and you can ALWAYS guess the punch line roughly half way through the knock knock set up. But then you have to wait another 6-10 seconds for the line to come out, then the cast freezes until the track is done laughing.

It's f*ckin alien to me.

I think the closest thing I enjoy is Silicon Valley.

I mean, it's basically the closest HBO and Mike Judge can get to a sitcom, outside of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

In Seinfeld, they had to tell the audience to calm down a bit, because the laughters and cheering were killing the beat of the show.

Big Bang Theory uses a live studio audience.

In fact, I read somewhere that the only sitcom that uses a laugh track in the traditional sense is How I Met Your Mother, because of the numerous cutaways and flashbacks and stuff.

Having an audience laugh when a large sign tells them to is similar to saying "It's better because the chicken was free range, as in had one square foot to spin around in".

Not to mention they still can large chunks in anyway. A worthwhile evening was spent listening to the core laugh track library back in college. Always fun to find Waldo. He's everywhere in this case.

I liked most of the sitcoms from the eighties. Now must sitcoms are stupid
Or trashy.

The only current sitcom I watch is TBBT.

Best sitcoms, imo: I Love Lucy, Seinfeld, and The Golden Girls

Never seen an American sitcom I liked. They're all 'relationships are haaaard' or 'co-workers, amirite?' and that's a big snooze for me.

I lean towards odd stuff like Black Books, Father Ted or The IT Crowd.

The first time I did a sitcom, the live audience was so distracting. I did mostly stage before, and it took a real effort not to react to the live audience.
