So I went thorugh this period where I finally sat down and watched Community because I was curious abotu Dan Harmen's early work. Completely fell in love by Season 2 it's one of the few works that has managed to make metafiction appealing to me. I completely fell in love withthe show and especially Abed around Season 1 Episode 3 and his conflict in Season 3 episode 1 was hoenslty one of the most relatable thigns i ever saw on TV up there iwth some later season MLP episodes. I had been meaning to watch Cougar Town for a while before this because when I was in high school my best friend used to talk about Scrubs all the time so I started watching it (He and I have a long standing tradition of getting eachother in to thi ngs or getting in to things together he later got me in to My Little Pony then I got him in to Ace Attorney, Zero Escape, and Danganronpa then he got me in to the new DUckTales series wh ich we've be en wathcing together and then I got him i n to Persona. I"v ebeen trying to get him in to Trails/Kiseki wh ich is arguably my favorite JRPG series of all time but this is way off topic anyway COmmunity is great and if you watch Cougar Town between Seasons 2 and 3 of Community it's even better for reasons I won't specify.

I've been watching Community for a little bit. I watched most of the first 3 seasons back in the day. I missed the last few of season 3 (the video game one was the last episode I actually watched at the time when the show was still out). I heard that Season 4 sucked and the other two were okay. Season 4 really wasn't that bad except that they kinda dropped Pierce like halfway through the season and he was missing all the time. Other than that, don't get what all the fuss was about. Currently I'm halfway through season 5.

If there's one thing I can say that I really don't like about this show it's that they drop characters. Imo the best shows are ones where most of the characters can stay onboard for a bunch of seasons. Troy got some buildup but I've heard is like barely mentioned and even joked about that he was captured by pirates. Pierce they just dropped and were like "oh well..." and I gotta feeling they'll do the same to Shirley. I feel like the characters, while fleshed out, are a little too expendable.

So I used to have a problem with them breaking reality but I've kinda embraced it as part of the show. Right now I'm on the MeowMewoBeenz episode and it's well written and I was shocked by how much it's like Nosedive from Black Mirror (and even came out before) and a little bit of 15 Million Merits.

Also I've noticed that you frequently reference Red Dwarf on your signature. Is it one of your favorite shows?

It's something my girlfriend got me to watch years ago but I fell off and don't think much about it these days. Didn't really care for the MeowMewoBeenz episode just felt really boring.

Ah I see. I was just wondering because I hardly see people talk about it much and I'm really into that show even though I last watched it maybe 5 years ago. I watched from the first season until the 10th or so.

I enjoyed the first 2 seasons of the community. Really liked all the community college jokes/ story lines. Lost interest right after that dont really care for metafiction.

The paintball episodes are always a treat though.

OH yes I remember when Season 2's paintball episode came up and I realized what was oging on after a few minutes and was like "NO WAY!" Metaficiton can be h it or miss for me but Community pulls it off IMO.

For me I always think about the episode where one of the girls wanted to make sure her college credit transferred. As a former community college student/ Student Services Professional working in Admissions that episode really hit home for me. Especially when you toss in non-accredited institutions, out of state schools, the changing of credits etc etc.

Seems needlessly complicated.
