I sooo hate the theme song

We love the show but we race for the remote mute button when the song comes on. Bare Naked Ladies are an awful band and the sound is so very commercial it almost defeats the smart writing on the show. And turn down the laugh track guys. Is that really necessary? I wish the producers would treat the audience intelligently.

I got tired of it to after while, so what I did one night I used Movie Maker to capture the whole intro.I slowed it down 3 or 4 times, muted the music and then added my own music to it,something that was relative to the video. It gives you a whole new perspective of the intro and you would be amazed how many different photos were used to make it.

You do realise that they don't use a laugh track, yeah??

The lyrics to the theme song are VERY relevant to the show. Just gotta lose yourself in the sound, man :) yeah, right on, daddy-o lolz

It's filmed in front of a live studio audience so the laughing you hear is the audience. However, the more times the actors mess up their lines and scenes, it becomes less funny to the audience so they add more laughter during editing of the episode.

They record the audience laughter during taping.

But then in the editing process they use that recorded laughter to build a laugh track. It's called sweetening...basically manipulation. They turn it up, down, or insert it where they wish.

As for the lyrics...a poorly written time line embedded in a musically annoying song does not suffice. The package is dumbed down for the typical television viewer....daddy-o!

the theme song doesn't bother me. if I'm watching some episodes back to back, then yeah, I'll skip through it.

but what's with all the laugh track comments?

they have a studio audience, but of course during editing, they'll use a laugh track/filler.

but why is this something that people keep bringing up? what am I missing? it's never bothered me or stuck out to me...

one of the dvd seasons, the whole song is performed by the Barenaked Ladies. maybe the whole song is 3 minutes long. but in the beginning of the show, it's like 10 seconds. lol. it's funny too, because I'll watch the dvds, and by the time I start to mute the song, it's over!
