Why Chuck Lorre seems to be a nice guy



Chuck Lorre is a writer/producer of some pretty nice TV comedies, the best one being "The Big Bang Theory". (Buy the complete first, second and third seasons on DVD.) He also created and wrote "Grace Under Fire", "Cybill", "Dharma & Greg" and "Two and a Half Men".

At the very end of each episode of most of his series, he publishes a so-called "Vanity Card", most of which are either funny, thoughtful, wise or all the above at the same time. And most of them seem to be deeply personal at some level. Adding such vanity cards shows that his writings definitely are more than a few notches up from the usual boring sitcoms we are served.

Here's a funny vanity card ("The Sitcom Writers' Prayer"), and for the whole series, check out the main site.

And oh, if you like the writer and director Paul Feigyou will probably like Lorre's work. Feig did the TV series "Freaks and Geeks" and the two films "I Am David", "Unaccompanied Minors". And both Lorre and Feig both seem to have that tender nerve that not so many TV writers possess. Feel free to read this short text I wrote about Feig and his work.
