It seems almost to be an unintentional parody of a sitcom: People on the laugh track laughing at stuff that is staggeringly unfunny.
That might be the best way I could ever define it. I've tried to watch it. I'm about 20 reruns in over the last year plus. Many of my friends love it and obviously alot of people on this board. I've never so much as cracked a smile at this crap. The unreal obvious laugh track I think has something to do with it, it takes away from what might be good jokes, but I think that show, its characters and its writing is horrible. Barney's "Legend...wait for it.....dary" wow, what a hilarious catch phrase. I know, because the audience that sounds exactly the same from the 50s Flintstones cartoons laughed at it. So its gotta be funny
