    So I'd thought I'd create a thread for the best comedy currently on TV.

    So if you aren't watching it, go watch it.

    The first season is the weakest, but it's still pretty good.

    Last nights episode was, like the entire third season so far, great.

    Its good, I laugh sometimes whilst watching it.

    Swanson is the best character.

    Well, I just watched the first episode. Not as good as Community. ;)
    (Not that they are comparable)

    I will say this in its favour: it gets exponentially better after the first season

    the first series it struggled to find its own unique vision and is pretty much an office /bite/. throughout season 2 it begun to mature and got better and better

    it's definitely worth sticking with, syrok

    I love it, think it's way better than The Office, Tom is just funny as fuck, one of the best US comedies for sure.

    I don't know why but I nearly cried laughing when Tom played the word "is" in Scrabble

    but yes, awesome show and agree it needs it's own thread.

    Ah, thanks for bumping this thread.

    I've just finished 'It's Always Sunny', 'The Office' and 'Eastbound' - I'd totally forgotten about this great show.

    Just started watching this a week or two ago.

    It is to The Office what American Dad is to Family Guy.

    Shameless cash-in on a winning formula but funny all the same.

    It's really hit its stride. Ben really adds to it, as does Chris. He is literally. The best character. I have ever heard.

    I though this was actually going to be about outside. Should've known better really.

    it gets less like the office after series 1, which was mediocre

    I'm thinking I prefer this to the office, more funny characters.

    I wasn't as fond of the second of Thursday's episodes as the first (getting everyone drunk was a masterstroke), but Rob Lowe air-banjoing in the back of the car was fantastic. As was Ron's demonstration of how taxes work.

    Anne Perkins!

    Yeah he's brilliant, him and Tom and Ron, pure gold.

    I loved it when Leslie told him that she was putting Ann forward for the job and he just exclaimed "Ann Perkins!" and looked delighted.

    So just watched the finale of the office and this back to back.

    I'm fully now a parks fanbot.

    I'm still not sure why they aired the last four episodes in pairs, but those were two more great episodes to end on, even if I don't fully buy into the Leslie/Ben relationship.

    As usual, I wrote a review on my blog for anyone interested.

    Now I'm going to have to finish watching the second season. It's interesting how far the program has come, since season one isn't particularly good.

    Oh I'm well into the Leslie Ben thing, some really mice subtle comedy going on.

    I just think the characters are so well formed, love it!

    The look on Ben's face after the meeting with Leslie's mother was hilarious.

    Bye Bye Li'l Sebastian ;(
