True to Lifeish

A strong recommendation for the new NBC sitcom Community, pairing contemporary professional snark Joel McHale with vintage professional snark Chevy Chase. The second episode use of Aimee Mann is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time.

The setting is a community college, and, boy, is it funny. Please do yourself a favor and ignore the Dave Factor on this one and start watching. You can catch the first three episodes on Hulu, but for those of you who might know a Nielsen family, I'd suggest crashing their entertainment center Thursdays at 8, to help drive up ratings.

KARL: You have been put on notice. Trust me.

Already watching it.

The second episode was better then the first. If it continues this trend it will be a very watchable show indeed.

It's okay. Surprising how well Chevy Chase works in it. And anything with John Michael Higgins can't suck too badly.

It's definitely the inheritor to 'Arrested Development,' for me. And I'm also surprised by how funny Chase is. It made me remember how much I really used to like him.
