NBC's Community

Who else has been watching this excellent comedy programme?

Better, funnier, more positive representation for geek culture and just social issues in general, with great referential humour and attention to detail. Now in its fifth season, after a disappointing fourth.

Soo... anyone? :D

I know it as being on NBC, but I watch it in the UK, so it might not be.

Hang on..

Nope, definitely NBC.

It was a play on how poorly the NBC network does in the ratings in the US.

Ah. Yes, that did seem to plague Community as well. But I thought Parks and Rec got some good numbers, on the other hand..? :-?

I enjoy this show. Missed some of it last season. Conflicted w/ Big Bang Theory which I love more. Now that I have a DVR again, I record Community. However I wonder if it's on its way out. SPOILERS: First they killed off Pierce and now Troy has apparently left the show.

We know that was going to happen, though. It was mentioned repeatedly towards the end of season 4, and confirmed pretty quickly.


As for the comparison with Big Bang Theory, I can't stand it. It was vaguely amusing when it first came out, but took a bad turn almost immediately and has been perpetrating negative stereotypes about geek culture (as well as fairly sexist and racist lines, thrown casually in every now and then) ever since. Community seems to be laughing with geeks rather than at geeks.

And that's a welcome change. :D

I never got that impression about Big Bang Theory. Not at all. But I like Community more. I didn't even mind the fourth season. Don't like how the show went from about 20 episodes per season to a 13-show order, though.
What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

Your opinion's different from mine and that's not allowed. Everyone, grab your pitchforks. Get him!!!!

Seriously, I never saw Big Bang Theory as insulting nerds. In fact, I saw it embracing nerddom, which is getting more common nowadays I think, but it's still nice to see a show whose characters aren't "cool."

But I still like Community more. Not sure why, but I think its humour is a little more out there, more "sub-real."
