Also, Community blows. No one in junior college is half as interesting as these characters are trying desperately to be. As a college-based ensemble comedy centered around a smug douche, it makes PCU look like Citizen Kane.

Have you never heard of a sitcom before? Are offices, taxi garages, dive bars, etc normally filled with fascinating people?
Didn't see last night, but of the first 4 episodes, two ended in complete surreal brilliance (the one with the film class, and the one with the spanish presentation.) The other 2 were OK, but had at least 2 or 3 jokes that made me laugh out loud, which is rare. It will either grow into a classic or burn out quick.
Also, I admire it for getting one or two extremely politically incorrect jokes into each episode. They are always very subtle...I think they are sliding them past the censors because they know the censors are too stupid to get them.
ah, so many quotables from this week's episode. this exchange in particular cracked me up.
Jeff: I'm saying you need to play football, it's in your heart.
Troy: That's racist.
Jeff: It's in your soul?
Troy: That's racist!
Jeff: Your eyes?
Troy: That's gay?
Jeff: That's homophobic.
Troy: That's black.
Jeff: That's racist.
Perhaps its because I actually work for a community college district that allows me to find this show funny. I mean, there are actually more interesting characters that are enrolled at my place of work than the show, but I can kind've relate to a few of the characters.
Though, I've been underwhelmed by the start of 30 Rock so far in the new season...hopefully it'll pick up.
