The sitcom, set in a small college, is right up my alley with pop culture references galore and laugh-out-loud geeky moments. How did I ever miss it before? Except for Chevy Chase, who plays the millionaire Pierce Hawthorne, I was mostly unfamiliar with the rest of the actors in the cast, but they're all so amazingly funny -- Joel McHale as the former lawyer Jeff Winger, Alison Brie as the lovely but quirky Annie Edison, Danny Pudi as film student Abed Nadir, Yvette Nicole Brown as single mom Shirley Bennett, Ken Yeong as teacher Ben "Senor" Chang, and Jim Rash as Dean Craig Pelton. My favorite character is the wacky one-time anarchist Britta Perry, played wonderfully by Gillian Jacobs, and my wife's favorite is the adorable nerd Troy Barnes, brought to life by the talented Donald Glover.
A bunch of my friends recommended Community to me in the past, but I never got around to tuning in until my wife convinced me to give it a try. It lasted three years, will it last more?
