The ultimate patheticness of the laugh track
I turned the TV on tonight, and "That 70's Show" was on. I wasn't really paying attention to the TV at first, then I started noticing the wayyy overuse of the laugh track. Man, they insert laughter after some of the dumbest things that aren't even funny...at all. Next time you happen to watch one of these sitcoms, try to tune out the laugh tracks. You'll see how downright unamusing many of the jokes are.
I'm glad to see more sitcoms lately that omit the laugh track and are still hilarious without it (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development). The laugh track is EVIL and needs to die!
