I recently heard TV critic Alan Sepinwall state in a podcast that fans of Modern Family don't like Community and vise versa, which is sad because he thinks they're both great. I fell right into the former group and felt some validation for not liking Community. Early reviews and the inclusion of Ken Jeong gave me high expectations, but I couldn't get past Joel McHale's Jeff Winger. To me it was an attempt at a typical Vince Vaughn character without VV's charisma to pull it off. That set the tone for me and probably because of it I found almost nothing to laugh at in this show. Because some people I respect (including a few here) like the show I've kept the most recent episode on my DVR and have given the show plenty of chances. Last week's "Contemporary American Poultry" has finally made me a fan. I'm a sucker for well executed pop culture references and the Goddfellas parody from Abed as Henry Hill to the "Layla" piano played very well for me. Then I realized there wasn't as much Joel McHale as in previous episodes I've seen and his character was helpful and sympathetic in this ep. Hopefully I'll let this episode be my baseline and watch each episode believing it will be entertaining instead of hoping it might be. Anyone else like/ dislike this show?
