    Crowds remind me that stupid people breed.

    But, seriously, those laugh tracks kill whatever comedy there is. It just reminds me that somewhere out there some schloemoe wants me to laugh at his mediocre actors, stilted plot, and desperate writing at exactly the right moment. "To hell with comedic timing, I have a laugh track!"

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Who needs an opinion of your own when you can borrow someone else's?

    Conversations about laugh tracks always remind me of M*A*S*H*.

    They had a standards and practice rule that wouldn't allow them to use the laugh track in the O.R.

    Funnily enough it was because the show was being forced to use a laugh track.

    there are entire episodes where the only jokes that are taking place are said In the O.R. and the dramatic portion of the show was outside the O.R.

    That's right, Entire episodes without laugh tracks. some of their better episodes as well.

    I agree with the comedic timing comment above. there are shows today that don't use laugh tracks that really on script and delivery that are pretty damn good in my opinion. but shows that tend to use laugh tracks use them less like a crutch and more like a wheelchair.
