What is a "LSA sitcom"?

"Live studio audience", which I know drives a lot of people off shows and I'm not a fan myself but I don't tend to mind as long as the jokes are actually funny.

Ohhh right. I usually just refer to them as "Laugh Track" sitcoms. I'm not a fan of them either, much prefer sitcoms with convincing scenarios and characters, as if I'm watching real people in real situations, without the canned laughter and mechanical feel

There's a couple I like though, such as Alan Partridge stuff.

Both the characters and the story. In Breaking Bad, I found the protagonists' incessant blunders (some of which it's hard to believe a high-level scientist would make) to be quite irritating, especially because they're mostly used as a cheap way of introducing new predicament to keep the story going. In fact, the storyline follows the same "all is well >problem arises > problem solved, all is well" pattern throughout the series. At some point, you just get bored of seeing the main characters fuck it all up again for no apparent reason whatsoever other than keeping the series going.

Better Call Saul, on the other hand, feels a lot less repetitive and the characters are a lot more developed, interesting and complex (or at least, less manichaean).

Young Sheldon? Come on… It's funny to hear the stories, but I can't imagine a series actually showing his youthful escapades to be that good. :|

I'm sure it'll be loaded with lots of cringeworthy "bazingas," given how it's pretty much been made his catchphrase.

I doubt it will last more than one season. Just by watching the first look video made me cringe a few times.

Just watched a couple of episodes of Home Improvement on TV, man how I really enjoy the show. Even watched some Rosanne and Last Man Standing. :o

Say, does anyone in the UK watch that gaming TV show that's on Dave at the moment called Go 8-Bit? That and Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners have been my main watches in the past month or so.

I didn't like Breaking Bad either, though I suppose I didn't actually finish it. I didn't think Walter's character was actually that good, he just seemed like an erratic prick.
Also I still haven't got around to watching GoT...

I enjoyed the GOT S7 premire, however, Ed Sheeran stuck out like a sore thumb and felt like a pointless addition
