    Sorry if there's a thread, I looked and couldn't see anything.

    So I just started getting into this show. I never watched Joel McHale before until the Ubisoft E3 conference, but I thought he was funny as hell. And he's funny in this show too. Who else likes it/dislikes it?

    Personally, I love the fact that Chevy Chase is on the show. That man knows how to be funny, and Abed is one of the best TV characters I've seen in years.

    One of the few shows on the air I make a habit of watching weekly, and probably my favorite one airing right now, with Psych and Warehouse 13 being between seasons.

    Basically, my tv schedule is split between Saturday mornings with The Legend of Korra and Thursday nights with Community. You've made a pretty awesome choice in shows.

    Always good to see another temper get streets ahead.

    Why would I harass somebody who turns me on?

    Also, I love the season finale for season 2 with Pierce.

    Heh, I recently started watching it (in order) too. It's definitely my favourite sitcom on television. I'm currently in the middle of Season 2.

    Best sitcom on TV. Abed is one of the most ridiculously complex comedy characters ever, and they've somehow made that complexity into comedy. As for plain laughs, I have to give it all to Joel McHale, between this and The Soup, I rarely stop laughing when he's on screen.

    Community is my favourite sitcom right now. If you have a chance to pick up the DVDs you should. They did commentary for every episode, which is awesome.

    I love Community!
    Because of that show, I often roll a dice to figure out what video game system I should play that day.

    Just so you know, you are now creating six different timelines.

    I recently started watching last month, and I'm hooked.

    Definitely one of the better sitcoms I've seen.

    I'd watch just to witness John McHale's sarcasm

    Joel McHale is really funny on the show. For some reason, I swear some of the lines he says is improvised. I also think Chevy Chase's lines are improvised sometimes too, he has so many last lines for a scene it's awesome.

    I still think the funniest episode is either Fistful of Paintballs, or Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. I never get bored of those two episodes. And that beat box Abed and Troy do at the end of the second episode is amazing.

    The Dungeons and Dragons episode was great. Oh Pierce.

    And everything Troy and Abed does at the end is awesome.

    This sounds interesting. I might go grab the pilot in a few. :D

    It's definitely worth watching, though I'll warn you: the pilot and the show itself are a bit different. You might want to go through the first few episodes to better figure out if you'll like it or not.

    Agreed, the pilot and first few episodes are alright but the show doesn't really hook you until later in the season. I remember watching the first few episodes of Community (at your house actually) and enjoying them but not having interest really in watching more. Eventually I was coerced into watching the entire show by another friend and I was hooked since then. Watched season two immediately afterwards and I've been following season three almost regularly (I usually watch the episodes on Friday or Saturday instead of premiere night).

    Weird, I'm different than both of you. It was the first couple episodes that I actually fell in love with. Seeing Chevy Chase (because I'm a huge fan of his) be a grumpy old dick is what got me hooked. That and the sarcasm from Joel.
