  Amongst the Smartest and Funniest Comedies Ever Made

| | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468)

Set in Greendale Community college Community centres around a group of seven misfits who at first have nothing in common other than the fact that they all in Senor Chang's Spanish 101 class yet, despite their contrasting personalities, they soon form a tight knit group.

For me Community, with its mix of oddball characters and self-awareness, can be most closely compared to another excellent sitcom in Arrested Development. As with Arrested Development this first season does take a few episodes to really get going but, once viewers become familiar with the characters, it is rare that an episode fails to deliver plenty of laughs and any film/TV nerds like me will just love episodes like 'Modern Warfare'.

With such attention to detail every episode can be enjoyed over and over again as each time you will spot or pick up on something you missed the first time around. I hope Community stays around for as long as possible.

  The best comedy show since Arrested Development

| | See all RandomSalad's reviews (33)

If you haven't seen Community (which is very likely due it being aried over here on Viva at 1am) then now is your chance to see one of the funniest shows ever to cross the atlantic.

Community is a very unique comedy with is use of pop culture and it's parodies that make it really stand out. The first few epsiodes of the show start off fairly slow, but after once it gets going you'll get some of the best episodes of any sitcom you'll ever see. The paintball episode is an absolute master piece and is probably the one to check out on Itunes if you're curious about the series. Physical Eduction is also a stellar episode.

  Best comedy in years

| | See all Neurotic's reviews (1)

The first episode falls a tiny bit flat, but from episode 2 onwards its a stone cold killer comedy.

No canned laugh track this is funny because its funny, not just because your being told where to laugh. Very intelegent, mixing many genres and topics, its amazing this hasn't gone main stream like the Big Bang Theory(which if your a fan of you will love this).

Watch this and you will be quoting lines for weeks to come. Holds up to repeat veiwing with some great guest stars(Jack Black, Owen Wilson and the later seasons have John Goodman and George Takai).

Stand out Episodes are the Halloween, Christmas and Season ending Paintball specials.

it really surprises me that Community season 1 as not been released on dvd in the UK yet as it as been around seens 2009 and been aired on the UK tv channel viva saying that im really surprised it as not been snapped up by E4 and after you watch the 1st few episodes you will be thinking the same, awesome cast featuring Ken Jeong (Hangover 1 & 2, Knocked Up, Role Models) and Chevy Chase who as the best one liners to keep you laughing for days, all in all i kind of see this tv show as a new school saved by the bell but much much better.
