In a nutshell: You betcha!
Community‘s a quirky little comedy that fits right in amongst NBC’s other Thursday night quirkfests: The Office and 30 Rock. (Sorry, I can’t muster up much enthusiasm for Parks and Recreation – at least not based on last season’s lackluster laughs.)
It’s a little bit snarky, sure – but personally, I’m a big fan of the snark.
Joel McHale excels as a slimy lawyer who needs a college degree and fast – don’t ask, it’s a long story – so he enrolls at Greendale Community College. A supporting cast of oddballs – including Bedford’s Chevy Chase in his first regular TV gig since SNL – rounds out the show nicely, too.
Check out my full review of the first episode here – and check out the show yourself at 9:30 p.m. tonight!
