    Some weird planetary alignment allowed me to watch 5 Thursday night sit-coms in a row. I enjoyed it.

    Did you watch all five?

    I ranked them thusly:


    The League -- funny stuff
    Always Sunny in Philadelphia -- the game was a riot
    Parks and Rec
    The Office
    Community


    Community is getting a bit tired to me. I did like the reveal at the end though. Parks and Rec is one of my favorites but I was getting so sick of Entertainment 720. Hope that's dead.

    April and Andy cracked me up. Turning Mr. Potato Head's smile upside down was great.

    This thread is dead to me.

    Big Bang Theory...

    Tune to CBS at 8:00 on Thurdays!

    ...or catch up on TBS and Peachtree TV.

    I love Parks & Rec, but I laughed much harder at Community last night. Haven't watched the rest of the shows due to baseball and stuff though.

    I watched BBT, Community and Whitney. Liked all three.

    But Community is on a ROLL. Some of the best writing & acting in a sitcom these days. Every week is like "what will they come up with now?". There is no normal episode. :up:

    BBT is ok. They need to jump-start the show, it's getting formulaic. It's got a lot of goodwill built up, and I still enjoy it. But let's try something adventurous writers. (And yeah, hawt girl walks in comic book shop and picks up Leonard within 10 seconds--happens all the time.)

    Whitney is funny, I really like her (the actress/comedian). Her expressions and mannerisms are hilarious. The show is ok. BTW, I'd never heard of her until this show.

    I disliked Community enough that I already don't remember what it was about. Something about the same, tired theme about the same period of time but different versions. Something like that.

    Community got a little unlucky in that the last episode, Remedial Chaos Theory, was originally planned to be Ep 3.03, but it was taking so long in editing that they decided to swap it with Competitive Ecology, which was supposed to be Ep 3.04, but which was already in the can, as it required less post-production. And yes, there are broadly similar structures in Ep. 3.05 (Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps) and in the rejiggered Ep 3.04 (Remedical Chaos Theory). But honestly, I found it hysterical, and I had been underwhelmed by the first 3 eps of this season.

    Whitney and It's Always Sunny In Philidelphia were watched on Friday along with Supernatural and Bill Maher.
    Fringe was out due to baseball.

    I really only watch BBT, Community, and The Office. Side I don't ordinarily watch them through the DVR, but the broadcast direct, I have a few slots to find something to watch. In place of Parks And Rec (which I long tired of), i watched part of a prison program on NatGeo.

    Thursdays we just catch Community, Office, and BBT.

    That's it for our comedy shows on that night.

    I can't tell if you're joking...

    Anyways, Community I think is finally getting back to being good after a beginning slump. It's Always Sunny was probably a very close second, The League was pretty good too but I found Parks and Rec was lacking in funny, besides Ron (like always) Tom was a little too insufferable this episode.

    The Office, ugh.

    Best Halloween episode this year I have to give to a Wednesday comedy, Happy Endings, which is just killing this year.

    Wait. You want them to try something adventurous then right after in your parenthetical, you dismiss the adventurous...
