Sitcoms are a pure, simple entertainment. Snappy jokes, attractive people, easily-resolved plot lines, and an audience that laughs along with us. What if instead of laughter, sitcoms were filled with the sounds of horrified, blood-curdling screams? Sheldon's antics read a little creepier, I can tell you that.
Now that we've made silly things scary, why not do the reverse? Game Of Thrones is one of the only TV shows I can think of where a scream track makes sense. So naturally, we made it a laugh-track-happy sitcom. Next episode: The One With The Red Wedding.
