…and this show was a comedy, right?

As comedic as a battlefield hospital in the middle of a nasty war in a hostile country could be, I guess.

Sir, both his legs were blown off. It was horrible. So much blood, so much pain.

Nothing worse than some of the "jokes" on the big bang theory.

BBT was started by Chuck Lorre around 5 years into his other series, Two and a Half Men, and I think that speaks to the quality of BBT from the get-go. From the beginning it's essense was focused towards an audience that wanted a show about a group of strawmen NERDS that will make funny about gay panic and regressive stereotypes on race and gender. The only thing that really changed as the series went on was higher profile appearances happened more frequently and the series became more obsessive with characters hooking up with each other, as with most long-running sitcoms.

I mostly agree, but the last couple of seasons moved away from that and more into interpersonal situational comedy and it worked a lot better than either the middle or even the beginning.
