I’m always looking for a good comedy to add to my regular viewing rotation. I’ve heard some very positive things about the NBC sitcom Community, which just kicked off its second season last week. It stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Chevy Chase, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Donald Glover, and Alison Brie as a group of misfit students at a community college. The students are all at various stages in their lives and are such a mismatch for each other that it sure seems there would be a lot of comedic potential for the show.
My plate was so full last year that I didn’t have a chance to catch any eps, but now that the Community Season 1 DVDs are on sale at Buy.com for just $30.99 with free shipping, I think I might just roll the dice and order the set. After all, I attended community college for a year, so I’m well aware of the different issues that those students face (as opposed to students at four-year schools). The exploits on Community just might remind me of my days on campus all those years ago!
Anyway, I’ll start recording the season 2 episodes in case I end up liking Season 1 enough to want to continue. It shouldn’t take me too long to catch up!
