I wonder if I mentioned this before. Since Friends, the old US comedy drama, is no longer aired, I have started watching another new US comedy drama called The Big Bang Theory. Even though E4 is now airing the latest series of The Big Bang Theory, I still find the old series episodes are funnier and better constructed. One of the episodes aired today was about Christmas. While Leonard and Penny are decorating a Christmas tree with christmas lights brown wire and baubles, Sheldon suggests that they should have Sir Isaac Newton figurine as the Christmas tree topper. That’s when they continue to talk about loads of scientific reasonings and terms. While I do understand The Big Bang Theory is about science, I don’t think that majority of the audience could actually understand what they are on about. Sometimes, I think they just try too hard.
Friends, on the other hand, I can watch it over and over again. It’s just a combination of simple English and body language by the casts and I do believe that many people still regards Friends as one of the best comedy dramas.
Well, one of my other favourite US comedy dramas is Two and a Half Men. However, I lost my interest in it after Charlie Sheen left the show. Men, men, men, men, manly men, men, men ….
