Hello! Hello! Hello!
Well, last night I was pretty amped up after G.O.T. killed off Justin Bieber, or a reasonable facsimile thereof. So I stayed up a bit, just like last week when they didn't kill off Justin Bieber, and laughed really hard at this new show.
I may be a little odd -- most of the time it is more than a little -- but I think a comedy about the greatest compression algorithm every written is pretty darn funny. "Be an asshole!" LOLs around!
And I sure bet there are some geeks who know more inside stuff than me. But I still laugh!
How about you? Have you seen it? What do you think?
Have a great day!
Mr. Geek 2U!

Remind me in a year or so when it's on Netflix (probably disc-only).
A "comedy about the greatest compression algorithm every written" - sounds pretty good to me.
Even though a part of me wants to hate the stereotypes put in the open for the mocking by the masses...I still enjoy the Big Bang Theory. And from my point of view, I've personally witnessed plenty of such hijinks up close and personal. (Hell, I'm probably guilty of some such nonsense. :/)

I watched it. Some of it was funny, some was just awkward. The 2nd show wasn't as funny, imho. Maybe I'm too jaded.
Will non-geeks find this stuff funny enough for the show to make it? I'm not so sure. Will I watch it every week, yes.

Snaggy you're such a Debbie Downer! I thought the second show stripper scene was sexist, but who am I to call them sexist, what with my TTBs and all.
