“Oh, my third wife was bi-racial!” – Pierce (doesn’t know to make jokes)
This great original TV show appeared on Netflix a couple of weeks ago and is more interesting than you think. I didn’t want to write a review of this production, but last night I watched two of the best episodes from a sitcom for a long time (Contemporary American Poultry and Modern Warfare). To be more clear, episodes 21 and 23. I loved them. I was amazed at how they made something so great in only 22 minutes!
The only sitcoms I watched are Friends (1994-2004) and How I Met Your Mother (2005-2014), but none of them is like Community. You can’t compare these shows, they are the best in some categories. And Community won the originality for sure. There are a lot of subtle jokes, which made me laugh so hard.
The story follows Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), a suspended lawyer who has to enroll at Greendale College to earn a legitimate degree. He meets Britta, an attractive social activist. Jeff creates a study group to spend more time with her. That’s all you should not about it! You’ll love this group!
There are a lot of pop culture references, from Friends to Star Wars and Godfather. I can’t wait to watch more. At this moment I watched only the first season. I hope you’ll give it a chance if you are a sitcom fan. But don’t compare to other sitcoms because this one is very original.
Stay safe and enjoy it!
