The best new sitcom this year,
This review is from: Community: Season 1 [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Community is brilliant, airing on viva over here in the UK, it just doesn't get the attention that it deserves. It's like a grown up version of saved by the bell, with clever writing and story lines that seem fresh, new. It doesn't feel forced and thankfully there's no annoying laugh track. It may take you a few episodes to fully appreciate the wacky humour and oddball characters, but then you'll never look back. The cast is extremely likeable, and you'll want to watch the episodes again. It isn't predictable, you may think people (from the study group) are gonna get together but the writers pull a swerve. Look out for the episode with Jack Black. Season one has many highlights, the Christmas episode, the paint-ball competition and the chicken fingers Mafia style show (for a start.) This DVD set is superb, extended episodes, out-takes, and commentaries on every episode! The packaging is really nice too. I paid less than twenty pound for the set, there's twenty-five episodes and that's great value.
