One of my favorite comedies on television right now is Community on NBC. The writing and plotting are intelligent and witty, the cast is brilliant and beautiful, and the potential for watching episodes over and over is enormous.
Here’s an example that demonstrates the thought that goes in to every episode. I didn’t even notice Abed in the background until I saw this montage of clips from the episode.
Now it seems the show is at risk of being cancelled, perhaps destined to join the ranks of My So Called Life, Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development, and Friday Night Lights as under-appreciated gems. If you haven’t seen it, watch a few episodes and let me know what you think.
