Bloggaday 79 – Chuck Lorre Recycles… Jokes
It’s kind of funny. After watching Two and a Half Men and big Bang Theory for so long and seeing so many reruns of them, you start seeing a lot of jokes being recycled, not only on the same show in different situations, but across both shows. This is of course because they are both Chuck Lorre shows.
I don’t know if the shows share the exact same writing team, but there is obviously some overlap. There seems to be more and more overlapping situations in the two shows as time goes on.
I have also noticed there has been some blurring between the two shows though. Two and a Half Men has always had a lot of sex-based humor. That’s the nature of the show. Big Bang Theory seems to have incorporated more of it since its first season. I don’t recall it being used quite as extensively as it is now.
While there is definitely cross-show humor, the joke recycling is more common on each show respectively. Two and a Half Men seems to do this more, but I imagine that’s just because it’s been on for almost a decade while Big Bang Theory is on what, their 3rd or 4th season? I suppose I could look it up since I’m on my computer, but if you are reading this, you are not only on your computer, but you are actually online, which makes you much closer to the answer than me.
That would have been much funnier (or funny at all) had I said that in a recent Bloggaday, making it a recycled joke, but alas, I did not. As I write this, I’m thinking about posting this in a couple of days and write another one for today to plant that seed. Unfortunately, I’m too lazy to look up how long Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory have been on the air, so that plan doesn’t look too good to me. I mean I would have to write another couple of hundred of words. I can’t be bothered to do all of that wor
