I Can't Watch Shows That Have a Laugh Track Anymore

  1. I noticed this when I tried to join the whole How I Met Your Mother thing.
    So many people were posting about it on Tumblr and I decided to give it a try. I couldn't even finish the first episode. Because of the laugh track! And then the series finale was horrible so I dodged a bullet there.
  2. I started thinking about why it bothered me so much.
    After all, I grew up with laugh tracks.
  3. But for the past 15 years or so, my favorite shows have not had laugh tracks.
  4. Like, The Office.
  5. Parks and Recreation.
  6. Scrubs.
  7. Malcolm in the Middle.
  8. The Simpsons.
  9. Glee.
  10. Modern Family.
  11. Community.
  12. Bob's Burgers.
  13. Brooklyn 99.
  14. 30 Rock.
  15. Laugh tracks don't bother me when I am watching classic shows, though.
    I guess now it's part of the charm?😊👍🏻
