    LOL. I thought you were talking about the Asian guy.

    I think Caroline is more funny than Max. She's just so quirky and I think Beth Behrs does a great job with the physical comedy. And I like Caroline's butt more than Max's boobs.

    I do agree with the comment about footbinding.

    I did a search for Kat and found a few topless pics that may or may not be her. WOWZER!

    Wow. Reality check. Almost everyone has a cell phone. Not every apartment in NYC (especially non-Manhatten) is extremely expensive.

    There are literally millions of people in NYC who have minimum wage or lower jobs. And they live in NYC. They aren't exactly living in a deluxe apartment in the sky.

    BTW, Kat is also a nanny in Manhatten. Not as poor as you think.

    I'm liking the uniforms. But they need to take in Caroline's. Baggy isn't ever becoming and she's the type that needs to be.

    Me too! She looks great in her shorts and that white outfit she had on the first two episodes.

    And the show on earlier is called How I Met Your Mother.

    There was an article in yesterday's Sac Bee that said this show is currently the highest-viewership new show of the season.

    That's only somewhat surprising. It's a pretty good show, and they're lucky that the second episode didn't kill it.

    There's been 4 episodes so far:
    1. Pilot episode: Great! Loved it!
    2. Had the second episode been the pilot, the season pass would have been gone so fast I might have broken my remote in my haste to delete it. Horrendous. The only thing that made me give it one more chance after this bag of total suck was the promise of the excellent pilot.
    3. Third episode was good enough for me to give it one more chance again.
    4. Fourth episode was back on solid ground.

    The one factor that might wear on me and become tedious is the horrifically bad and obvious cheap and fake laugh track. They'd do well to lose it.

    Yippee, I love the show!
    I feel so bad for you and all the other folks who are so annoyed by laugh tracks. I do not even notice them. It's not just this show, but not in any show where they are used. If I did notice them, I would probably be annoyed too, but I don't and I'm thankful I don't! No idea why I don't notice them.:confused:

    I know what you mean. I almost never notice them. Last night I watched Whitney. They said "This show is filmed before a live studio audience." After the first joke, the audience laughed and it annoyed me. After that, I never noticed the laughter anymore.

    I'm OK with shows taped before a live audience. "The Big Bang Theory" falls into this category, as did one of the more successful sitcoms of the last couple of decades, "Everybody Loves Raymond." While they fiddle with and edit the audience's laughing on these shows (for instance, the laugh we hear at a joke on a show might actually been the audience reacting to a blown line on an unused take), it's actual real laughter from a real audience that was present at the episode's taping.

    Modern "laugh tracks" are little more than a digital loop of deliberately muffled people laughing that's literally potted up, and then down on a mixing board at the end of every joke. It's the artificiality, low audio quality, and disconnectedness from the action of the show that I find so annoying about that approach.

    Year's ago, all laugh tracks on US TV shows, and I mean all of them, were done by a man named Charles Douglass using a proprietary device that he invented called a "laff box". The "laff box" was literally "played" like a musical instrument, and in fact, worked on the same principle as a Mellotron. The keys on its keyboard activated laughs of different character, from different groups of people, with different ages, different demographics, reacting to different situations, different kinds of humor, etc. Douglass could "play" the laff box in such a way that it was very hard to tell it wasn't a real audience. Generating reactions believable for each joke. Nervous, tentative laughs for politically incorrect jokes, groans for crude of gross humor, loud guffaws for slapstick, etc.

    Those "classic" laugh tracks don't bother me. It's these modern ones that are literally one, repetitive loop of laughs being potted up-and-down-and-up-and-down-and-up-and-down between lines of dialog that's so incredibly irritating!

    Did someone say 'Last Man Standing'? That laugh track is exactly as you described.

    I am glad 2BG is sticking around. I am enjoying the show and it lets me turn off my brain for awhile (not in a bad way, I just don't have to try and following details like while watching 'Lost'-type shows).

    That's interesting, thanks.

    I never thought I'd see a Mellotron mentioned in a 2 Broke Girls thread. :D

    Big boobs and fat boobs are not the same for me. Hence, no interest there.
