    For those, like me, who heard all about it and didn't actually hear it.

    That was when Beth had a sense of humor.

    That was when Howard still had a sense of humor, concerning Beth.

    He subsequently married her, now "It's not fun, it's not funny."

    I felt bad for the Simpson's dude that worked on that thing. It was Harr-ible.

    I do, too. But in a different way. How many re-writes did Howard demand of him, prior to approving the script? The original may well have been much funnier, but, in Howchie's opinion, was "too edgy," so Sam had to water the fucking thing down to where it ended up.

    I loved how much they complimented Sam Simon for that shit script. I never seen someone spend so much time on one script for an utter turd.

    The best were the kiss ass callers who licked his ass for this. "Howard, I'm crowded around my radio. it's like the old days when there was no TV. This is soooo funny!"

    It was so awful that I barely made it through it the first time, fuck if I would ever torture myself like that again.

    Its a sad state of affairs when I can't tell anymore if I don't think something is funny because of what the show has become or if it wasn't funny in the first place. Does that make sense to anyone?

    Yes, but I listened when it first came out, before I loathed the show and trust me ...it sucked then too.
