Customer Review

on 15 January 2012
This NBC show was recently reviewed in Empire Magazine, and sounded pretty intriguing, so I thought I'd give it a go. After watching the first series over a period of a week I have to admit that my wife and I are hooked!
Joel McHale, a stand-up comedian rather than an actor, is pretty natural as struck-off lawyer cum community college student, falling into a Spanish study group whilst attempting to catch the eye of Elisabeth Shue lookalike Britta. Along with Eighties comic icon Chevy Chase as ageing lothario and gullible fool Pierce, Donald Glover (no relation) as ex-High School star quarterback Troy Barnes, Alison Brie as the neurotic Annie, and the brilliant Danny Pudi as off-the-wall pop culture obsessive Abed, McHale struggles with dodgy tutors, a wildly inappropriate college dean, a manipulative head of psychology and the many idiosyncrasies of his fellow group members.
The premise of the show is to see the group interact in their various dysfunctional ways, whilst littering the script with popular culture references - mainly movies and music. The bizarre humour and oddball characters are what make this show special - occasionally the ideas fall a bit flat, hence four stars rather than five, but for the most part this is a heady mix of great interplay and inspired lunacy.
