Quick Look: "Community"

I originally watched the trailer for this show when it aired in September 2009.  At the time I was a little overwhelmed with other shows I was following and since it didn't grab me hook line and sinker in the first two episodes, I set it aside.  Now that I've actually committed to the 3rd episode (and beyond) I'll admit that may have been a rash judgement.  The beauty of Community is that it builds on a lot of the things we love about shows like Modern Family and 30 Rock in that there is a core group of characters who sometimes do silly things.  Ultimately though, like all shows of this genre, it becomes funnier as you get to know and care about the characters.  Give it a try and stick around because I promise you, by the end of the 3rd episode an impromptu attempt at krumping will have you hooked.

Gold stars to Ken Jeong (The Hangover, Knocked Up) as the crazy Spanish teacher and to Danny Pudi, playing Abed, who frequently rocks the best lines of each episode.
