Admittedly, 's brand of humor was problematic, especially during its earlier years. Much has been said about how it relied on sexism and racism to evoke laughter from its audience. Even Simon Helberg admitted that he didn't like how sleazy Howard was at first, while Cuoco opened up about feeling objectified at the beginning of its run.

Getting the cast in the confines of a car was always a sure way to elicit laughter. Having to share such a small space gave the cast the chance to really show their personalities.
