I don't watch much TV hardly at all but I started watching this per recommendation of a friend. It's a show on NBC, and I'm still catching up by watching season 1 (the show is on season 2 at the moment).
The general plot is a bunch of wash-ups and has-beens are attending college. Not just any college though - community college. Hilarity ensues. I actually LAUGH and I never really laugh much more than a smirk when it comes to TV comedy.
Here's the wiki on it:
[quote]Community centers on Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), a suspended lawyer who was forced back into school after his college degree is deemed invalid by the state bar association because his degree is from Colombia, not Columbia University. The series focuses on Jeff's experiences while attending the Greendale Community College in Greendale, Colorado, and the people he meets there. He has an obvious crush on Britta Perry (Gillian Jacobs), a female student trying to get her life back on track, and receives perplexing life lessons from Pierce Hawthorne (Chevy Chase), an aged moist-towelette tycoon who has been married seven times.[/quote]
I mean, holy shit bro. Chevy chase FTW!
The acting is fantastic, the script writing is witty and funny, the events that happen are sometimes so hilariously close to some events that happen at really community college it's scary, and the characters are relatable. Not to mention that the show never feels stale or re-hashed between episodes, though the show is young considering they just started season 2 this sepetember.
Anyone else seen it?
I watch it sometimes while waiting for The Office to start.
It's not bad at all, but for some reason, I don't make an effort to watch it regularly.
The show is one of the most funny series I have ever seen.
This show is pretty good. The episodes tend to be very original and the gang always has an odd predicament. I hope this one stays around for a while. Señor Chang has gotten kind of weird though.
Ah so this is what the show is called. I saw the paintball episode once before, it was pretty funny.
This show rules
Donald Glover is the man
I love Ahbed.

Is he related to Danny Glover?
This is one of the only shows I go out of my way to watch regularly. Abed and Troy are probably the greatest duo in sitcom history.

Nope, apparently not.
this show reminds me of arrested development, i'll check it out

I love Community. There are so many movie references in that show it's ridiculous.
One ofmy favorite shows. Modern Warfare was awesome, Think we'll seethe return of kick puncher?
Ack midterm school work and work work have kept me behind on the show for a few days, need to start watching episodes again :(
Also appears like the entire first season is on youtube, at least several shows worth are starting from episode 1.
This show rules. Season 2 has been pretty awesome thus far.
Drew carey is in the show? (I'm still half-way through season 1, haven't seen him yet)

the ending to this week's episode is awesome
The zombie episode was great this week.
Abed - "Make me proud and be the first black man to make it to the end."
Abed and Troy Cargoloader vs. Alien fight was one of the best things I've ever seen on TV.
best part of this show is how it has the black guy from derrick comedy
Tonights episode was great, I wish I would have started watching this show before last week
I love this show so goddamned much, it's so funny and good.

Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, annnnnd bitch.
