The Problem With The Big Bang Theory…


I’ve been meaning to post something about The Big Bang Theory for a while now but it’s taken me ‘till now to really understand what it is about the show that makes me uncomfortable. I’m not exactly a believer in the whole “only write about the things you like, don’t trash the things you don’t” trend which seems to be plaguing comments sections in negative articles lately, but I wanted to be able to really examine why I don’t like TBBT rather than just slagging it off. My main questions being - Why don’t I like this anymore? Why do I feel uncomfortable watching it? And why do I get so annoyed when I see people sing its praises online? The thing which really sparked this post was seeing a raft of comments on Facebook, below the last round of voting in Television Without Pity’s Tubey Awards, claiming The Big Bang Theory to be “the best comedy on TV”. This made me angry so instead of posting an impulsive comment calling out their bad taste which I’d probably regret later, I decided to really analyse why seeing comments like that made me so mad when previously, although I didn’t really love the show, I’d never considered myself as disliking The Big Bang Theory.

Hell, I even have season one on dvd, it’s sitting right between Battlestar Galactica and Bored To Death in my alphabetised collection.

And here, I think, is where my problem with The Big Bang Theory lies…

Did you know: Chris Evans gets panic attacks. Yes, he does. This is one reason why he’s very private and didn’t really do any meet-and-greets on the Avengers’ sets.

It amazes and inspired me that a man who does what he does can do it, even with an anxiety disorder. You go, Chris.

This is why I get so upset when I hear negative comments about Chris and how he doesn’t seem as out-going as the rest of the Avengers cast. I remember hearing people complain about how he’s ‘rude’ and the like and it’s sad, because I highly doubt he intends to come off that way, he’s just more reserved than the others.

I remember hearing once that he actually went to seek psychiatric help before accepting the role of Captain America because of how anxious he felt regarding it. As well as the fact that he already played another Marvel superhero and he was concerned how comic fans would react to his playing another hero in that universe.

Just because someone’s in the entertainment industry doesn’t mean they’re going to be incredibly outgoing off camera just as much as they appear to be on camera. Some people just really enjoy acting; they’re not the characters they portray nor are they like their costars nor are they going to be incredibly outgoing because of their choice of career.

Now I’m really starting to root for this guy. Because, well. I kind of get the point more accurately than I wish I did.

I am legitimately crying. I look up to him so goddamned much. He’s my hero. I’ve always said that I love Iron Man because he has an anxiety disorder, but Captain America, my baby, has anxiety. I don’t have words to describe how I feel, other than saying that I don’t feel so lonely anymore.

In case anyone wonders why I love him so.  It’s not (just) a physical appearance thing or even an acting thing.  It’s THIS, right here.

Chris Evans is a goddamn inspiration and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise. Every time he opens up about his anxiety and I see that he’s dealing with it and fucking succeeding,  I feel a little better and I think that if he can be okay, well then, maybe I can too.

I cried the first time I saw this interview. I cry EVERY TIME I see this interview. The “shhhhh” part…I get it. HE gets it.

One day I’ll get to thank him for it.

Went with the family to see How To Train Your Dragon 2. Someone brought fricken onions to the theater.

For the second time ever, I just could not outlast my dreadlocks.

After a second attempt, and after 1 year and a few months, my drealocks had to go. They were rad, but I just couldn’t deal with all the stimulus. Then, summer came and made things even more uncomfortable. Finally, after the headaches started, it was time for them to go.

I think that after another year  my hair would have become more “neat” and less wild. I would have liked to see them fully mature, but it is what it is.  I haven’t given up fully, though. 

I think next time I’ll look into synthetics for a more light-weight, convenient, and temporary experience.
