  • to be fair to friends, they didn’t use a laugh track and also i think that the live studio audience was kind of an off screen character in the show. a lot of jokes were only funny because of the audience’s reaction like when rachel tells ross that she’s pregnant

  • parks and rec, the office, friends, the IT crowd, the big bang theory, how i met your mother, brooklyn 99 and 2 broke girls are all the comedy sitcoms I watched in 2020 and I loved them all. Out of these Parc and recs was the best FOR MY TASTE. These shows literally made my lockdown good and memorable

  • Can you talk about teen dramas such as Riverdale and why it sucks at trying to be relatable, as well as how Euphoria gets it right. I also would love to see a video of you taking about your favourite disney channel sitcoms like Hannah Montana, That's So Raven etc. as well as some newer dramas such as Andi Mack.

  • Shits Creek is just as much, in fact quite a bit more, a character driven drama with character growth and long term emotional investment than it is a comedy. There's a reason it swept all the Emmys this year.

  • Watch the first few seasons of "It's always sunny..." for me at least, the first 6 or so seasons have some of the funniest episodes. There are a few really funny episodes in the last seasons, but the first ones are the best.

  • i honestly like both....i grew up on watching comedies with laugh track; hannah montana, waverly place, zack & cody and the nickelodeon side with icarly, drake & josh, victorious etc. to the point that i found it weird when a comedy show didn't have a laugh track. in the most recent years i've come to appreciate shows without laugh tracks more but they're just constructed differently. depends on what you have, the writing is different and the punch lines are used in different ways. in shows without laugh tracks the silence after a joke is sometimes part of the joke and makes it funnier. and shows who do laugh tracks build their jokes differently. i don't know if that makes sense but it's something i've noticed and then there's also the difference between a comedy show and a sitcom and adds to how the jokes (and characters) are built but i guess that's another topic lol

  • My problem with Parks and Rec is they try their best to give stories to ALL the minor characters. They sometimes just give them the most nonsensical of stories (one time that black girl just watches that clumsy guy to get his credit card in a hole).

  • Try watching, Married With Children or All in the Family or The Jefferson's. Older shows supposedly filmed in front of a live studio audience. The race humor from both sides is brilliant. Nobody is spared from Archie, George and Al's barbs. And just so you know, snowflakes will be triggered. Baby's!

  • I love when shows or movies that aren’t comedies can make you laugh, sometimes I feel like the jokes in dramas and other genres are even funnier because you aren’t expecting to laugh. My favorite recent example is the mandalorian. There are many moments throughout that show that were hilarious and actually made me laugh out loud but it never took away from the action. It’s not supposed to be funny, so when a certain scene makes you spit out your drink, it’s just that much funnier. The opposite can be said for heartwarming stuff in comedies. A good example is the office. It’s a very goofy show but it’s full of heartwarming moments and real life relationship stuff that’s actually relatable. You don’t expect a comedy to make you feel so much, but it does. No one who watched through that show can honestly tell me they didn’t sob their eyes out at the finale, and that shows that they got it right. They made it funny but they gave enough substance to the characters to make you care about them and that’s what makes the show so good. That’s why I hate Big Bang theory so much, not only do I not care about the characters, I actually dislike them so much that I want bad things to happen to them

  • I think where the comparison breaks down between multi-cam comedies and (especially modern) single-cam comedies is that while multi-cams are almost exclusively episodic shows -- where each episode stands on its own story and there's very little throughline from one episode to the next -- you'll typically see a modern single-cam comedy stray much farther into serialized territory, where characters meaningfully grow from one episode to the next and a storyline will carry from one episode to the next, sometimes even over an entire season. Serialized or semi-serialized shows typically have to spend additional time each episode on narrative, which I'd imagine hampers the "jokes per minute" angle. I'd be interested to see a comparison adding shows like It's Always Sunny or Workaholics -- shows that are single-cam and exclusively episodic -- because I'd guess that you'll see even higher jokes per minute than with something like Parks and Rec or Schitt's Creek. I think that puts the shows on "equal" footing when it comes to format, and would highlight even more how a laugh track slows down joke pacing.
