Did anyone watch this?

It was on VIVA every Tuesday from late September to late December. It's about Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), a disbarred lawyer going to school for the first time after his bachelor's degree is revealed as a fake, or as he says "better than real". The series focuses on the experiences of Jeff and the study group he accidentally forms while pursuing Britta Perry (Gillian Jacobs), a student trying to get her life back on track. The other members of Jeff's study group include Pierce Hawthorne (Chevy Chase), a millionaire on a late in life voyage of self discovery; Annie Edison (Alison Brie), a young straight-laced student; Troy Barnes (Donald Glover), a former high school star quarterback; Shirley Bennett (Yvette Nicole Brown), a single mother going to school to jumpstart her brownie business; and Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi), a pop-culture obsessed film student. Former Spanish teacher, now student Ben "Señor" Chang (Ken Jeong) attempts to join the study group in the second season.

I watched it religiously when it was on and started downloading season 2 along with the US schedule and in March I was delighted to here it had been renewed for a third season to air in September.

The guy who plays the Dean is hilarious. It also stars John Oliver as Professor Ian Duncan who is also a Liverpool fan.

This is one of the best comedies on TV along with The US Office and 30 Rock. Great line up on NBC.

Any other Greendale Human Beings fans out there?

Chevy Chase is brilliant. I love Donald Glover and Danny Pudi's "Troy and Abed" friendship, and Alison Brie, who plays Trudy in Mad Men, is brilliantly funny and gorgeous.

Bump



Got it yesterday and I've already watched 5 epiosdes. Love it. NBC have largely poor shows (except the Office,30 Rock and Chuck) but this is pretty good.

Currently it's on mid season break on season 3 and the last episode aired could be the last ever. It'll be very sad if they do cancel it when terrible shows like Big Bang Theory and 2 Broke Girls seem to be thriving on CBS.

I suppose it's just the luck of what network you're on.

Check out this scene from possible last episode, they were making fun of Glee https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6F48Z-z2s4&list=FLa9d0Urh-iFh8alTHObiR_w&index=1&feature=plpp_video

UNBELIEVABLE show, only watched Season 1 but it just kept getting better and better until the end. Have not laughed so much at anything since the very peak of Arrested Development.

Depending on how old it is and if it's first hand you might be able to take it back under it not being fit for purpose, moan about the purpose of a DVD being to be watched 100s of times. Not seen much of community but I've liked the episodes I've seen, will start watching it when I get back to university and get past the exams.

They said they will take it back just have to get some packaging for it and send it away to them .Will be a bit of a pain in the ass but they have no problem paying for the packagin and a replacement so it's alright.

If you like Donald Glover, check out his alter ego Childish Gambino.

My friend recommended this show and I ignored it being ignorant. Haha but now I have seen up season 4 and my goodness its excellent. The characters are really well developed that you can actually relate to them unlike other comedies and the jokes are really good love the references. I also love that the show is willing to take risks for example the paint ball episodes.

Best comedy I've seen in awhile and I can now honestly say it trumps the show that claims to be a "geek" comedy that is the big bang theory. Community is undoubtedly much better. Who could resist the early morning show that is Tory and Abed in the morning?  Laugh  Laugh

Recently got this on LoveFilm so starting from the beginning, moving toward the middle of season 1 at the moment. It's a good show and definitely seems to be finding it's feet pretty early in season 1, gradually getting funnier as the characters evolve.

*bump*

Working my way through season 3 and really enjoying it. All the characters are well written (although shirley can be a pain in the ass at times) and the simplest running gags, for me, are the funniest. Like chang just using his name in place of words:

'I know these air vents like the back of my chang'.

Glad to hear it's been picked up by Yahoo, more chance to watch Alison Brie Cool

One of my favourite sitcoms of all time. Had a awkward patch when Harmon left, but got back closer to form last season. Think we'll have one more season before the movie.

Dan Harmon has said in an interview regarding season 6 that at the top of his wishlist is to get Donald Glover back for it. He should come back, i appreciate his music career is his priority but he's a vital part of the show and hopefully he sees that and agrees to a return.
