    Am I the only person on Earth who doesn't like this show?
    ^ The above should be taken with two grains of salt and a fistful of "chill the F* out".

    Meh, I don't like it either, but I'm glad it's gonna be on the show.

    I honestly can't stand it. I don't find it funny. But this is kinda ironic; a bad game featured in a bad show ^^

    Please post constructively. There was no reason for bashing the game or show.

    I understand it. It's just not funny to me. I get a couple of chuckles here and there, but to me it just seems like geek black-face. I'll still probably watch since the WoW episode was worth a few good laughs.

    Also BRING BACK ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT!

    after watching from mmoc some linked videos of tbbt without the recorded laughs i though "well, it had a good run, bye"
    now i am thinking "damn the never ending ad"

    probably the coolest thing this game has going for it

    Penny getting into AOC or whatever it was and completely degrading into a mess of a person hitting the apex of shame when going to hang out with Howard of Wallowitz was the best. I am sure they will do something good with this also.

    If Sheldor is your posterboy of cool then the end is near! He will probably have a more SW style name then his other gaming names though.

    The only thing I don't like about BBT is it sometimes hits close to home, then I become completely embarrassed and wallow in misery while eating a pint of ice cream. I'm definitely a Leonard type - a big nerd but embarrassed to fly my flag in public.

    Otherwise its freaking hilarious, and I will thoroughly enjoy the TOR episode.

    I'll be honest, my joy faded after I read the full description. It's just another potshot at the MMO community and how they "give up real life to play video games and need rehab to stop."
    Sometimes I think I should have rolled a Priest....

    Well if TOR wasnt gunna hit 2 million very soon, it sure will now. Wonder how much (if anything) Bioware paid for that little advertisement.
