Have you ever wondered what the most popular sitcoms in recent TV history would look like if you removed all the jokes and left nothing but plot? Probably not. But someone else did, and that enterprising madman (genius?) went and found the answer himself. And then shared the bizarrely mesmerizing results. Oh, Internet. Your curiosity knows no bounds.
Predictably, Seinfeld remains a cut above the rest. Even with all the punchlines taken away, ‘The Junior Mint’ remains a perfectly structured episode of television.
Seinfeld – ‘The Junior Mint’
Friends – ‘The One With The Apothecary Table’
The Big Bang Theory – ‘The Cruciferous Vegetable Amplification’
Your variation of “The Big Bang Theory never had any jokes to begin with” is fully anticipated and wholly welcome in the comments.
