    This any good now? I watched a few eps of the first season a couple of years ago and hated it. Wasn't funny at all.

    The first season is mediocre, but it just keeps getting better after that. Ron is the best character on TV.

    Is it better than that godawful "let's say every sentence in a gooooofy manner, because that's what comedy is entirely about" Happy Endings?

    So without any kind of fanfare at all... Parks and Recreation finally is being shown in the UK, Wednesday nights on BBC 4. It started last week but you can get the first two episodes on iPlayer.

    massively underwhelmed by this. felt like the same joke as the office, but with a neurotic blonde rather than David Brent.

    It improves a lot, I'd say. I love it (and Ron and Tom are excellent). It settles down when Rob Lowe and Adam Scott turn up in the second series.

    Season one is awful. Season two onwards is brilliant.

    Watched the first four episodes of this on iPlayer and it's, well, crap. At least that seems the common opinion. I was worrying I was missing something, since it seems right up my street.

    Yeah, season 1 was not good. Season two though is fantastic. Was not a fan of Leslie at all during season 1, she doesn't change all that much but for some reason I found her a lot less annoying, probably because everyone else just ramps up their likeability to compensate.

    Love Andy and Ron. Glad to see less of Mark in season two though

    Not around here it isn't :)

    I love Parks and Rec, it's easily one of the best things on TV for me.

    I re-watched a few of the first season on BBC4 and the whole tone of it seems like a different show. Still loving the new episodes though.

    It's because Greg Whatshisname came over from The US Office to take over running the show, and the increase in quality is massively noticeable.

    That was my opinion after just 10 minutes of episode 1, after which we forgot about it for a couple of years. Then we heard more and more good things about it so forced ourselves to watch the first season, which is pretty short. Loved it. Bit patchy, but had something special. It's got better and better.

    Community, on the other hand, I find just hateful. Have tried to get through the first season at least three times now, we always give up. It's just not funny. And it has Chevy Chase in it, who is a cunt.

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!

    He's gone completely in season 3, he's a douche and nobody misses him ;)

    @TarickStonefire Community is amazing. Especially the first two seasons, and the third was still amazing. It started of as a TV show that wanted to try new things and be all nerdy and not be a generic sitcom. Unfortunately for parts of the third and so far in the fourth season it's stopped doing that and started trying to be "Community" which makes it a bit insufferable. I personally love it though, flaws and all.

    Glad Mark left, really stood out as the obvious weak character. Mid way through season 3 and it's nice to see Leslie changing from "Complete nut-job with terrible ideas" to "Neurotic but good at her job". Was really worried that she was just female Brent at first.

    Why don't more people love this show?

    Oh and for those who care, Season One and Two came out on DVD over here on Monday. No news on if/when BBC 4 will start showing Season Three sadly.

    Because people are more comfotable with identi-kit, smash-you-in-the-face-with-the-joke shite like the Big Bang Theory, How I Met Yer Ma and Two and a Half Men.

    Idiots (most of the population) need a laughtrack in their comedy to let them know when something is funny.

    I'm not sure about the others but Two and a Half Men isn't a laughter track, it's filmed in front of an audience.

    Any ideas how I can get hold of season 3?

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    I can't watch this. I've tried so many times to get through season 1 but it's so terribvle, unfunny and cringey. I don't get it! I should love this show, it's definitely my type of show, but it's just shit. I'm so tempted to ditch s1 and just start from season 2 as I usually do when I watch Star Trek TNG :)

    Season 1's only 6 episodes of less than half an hour each. Given how many hours of broken anime you've watched, surely you should be able to get through 2.5 hours of attempted comedy.

    Personally I quite like season 1. In some ways it's more of a pilot for series 2 and some of the characters aren't fully developed, but the characters that are there work really well IMO, and it sets up the pit/park concept which the whole show hangs off really.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!
