Laughter Anyone?


I don’t know about you, but some days I'm desperate for a good laugh. Sure, I love to write danger-ridden, suspense-filled books, but sometimes it’s nice to cast the danger aside, let loose, and enjoy a good, old-fashioned belly laugh.

I’m always looking for books, movies and TV shows that will spark a good laugh. Luckily I’ve recently discovered a show called THE BIG BANG THEORY (yes, I know I'm a little late in the game) about a group of scientists who are socially challenged. The situations are clever, the dialogue sharp and I find myself laughing so loud I scare the cats off the couch!

But besides the laughter benefit, this show (to me anyway) represents tolerance, understanding and the power of friendship. Yes, sometimes friendship is work, but isn’t it worth it?

What books, movies or TV shows make you laugh? I’d love to add them to my list!

This show kills me. I love it! My husband and I rarely agree on comedy but this is one that we totally sit on the couch and enjoy TOGETHER!

Hubby and I put everything on hold every Thursday night to watch Big Bang. I cannot count how many times I've laughed so hard 'til I cried!

We also get a big kick out of Mike & Molly and Rules of Engagement. Both are good for some laughs. :o)

I've never seen this one, but I've heard of it. It's on my list of some day.

Thanks for the suggestions, Christy! I've never seen Mike & Molly or Rules of Engagement. I'll give them a try.

My husband who got his PHD in physics loves this program. He wouldn't miss it. This and Dr. Who.

I love all of the shows mentioned here. I like shows that make me laugh a bit and cry a bit.

Margaret, I saw your post on "The Glades." I love that show, too.

Leann, I heard BIG BANG has a physicist on set to help them get it right. I imagine you'd need one of those!
