So far 75,062 Sina Weibo users have taken part in the discussion about the topic.

"I saw the Big Bang Theory when I was in college. How time flies! It has lasted for seven years. I cannot find my condition from back then even through opening QQ Space," said one Sina Weibo user named Xiaomingjiaodaming.

"I'm not a big fan of the Big Bang Theory and I started watching it in 2012 by accident. I watched six seasons during the summer holiday and have updated each episode each week. Sometimes I cannot wait for the Chinese version so I just watch the original one. I have learned a number of words and American slang. It is the only TV show I keep following so it is very uncomfroatble that I have missed the last episodes of seven season," said Phapsody, a Sina Weibo user.

"I agree with the policy of controlling micro films. Since it has appeared, the threshold of filmmakers is getting lower and lower. Many so-called original filmmakers make x-rated movies under the guise of a micro film," said a Weibo user Chaijunzhi.
