The Big Bang Theory is a nerd minstrel show.

I don't expect this to be controversial here.

Joss Whedon writes annoying dialogue

That may be more controversial

    Joss Whedon writes annoying dialogue

He is not a good show runner. He is not a good writer. What he does well, maybe better than anyone, is develop a fan base and pander to that dedicated base until they turn off their brains and just nod along. Also Firefly was OK, not grand, not amazing, just OK.

The Big Bang Theory killed nerd culture and flooded everything I enjoy with normies who radically altered and overwhelmed each sub culture they invaded.

I had a girlfriend in college who loved Buffy so I had to watch at least some. I complained about the dialogue and was told it's Whedonspeak. So I guess forced, unnatural dialogue is excusable if you're Joss Whedon

And like women's' feet - he has a thing for feet - ever noticed that in his work?
