Holy shit watching Parks and Rec and saw this. One of their writers has to be a /mu/tant right?

lol no

no

Either you're joking or you are unaware that NMH were a band before 4chan was even a thing.

Other things exist out of your own condensed little world you know.

haha oh wow

every other student at my uni listens to NMH and they've sold out most every show on their massive world reunion tour

they're not that obscure

anyway it's not only like /mu/ knows about them they had fucking fans before /mu/ existed.

This. Look at the Amazon reviews for ITAOTS before 2005, they obviously had a cult following before Pitchfork.

Yes, it does mean that.

That's like saying that someone who likes Radiohead shares /mu/'s taste.

3 seasons overkill.

End that shit already.

As soon as Knope won the election, & nothing more. Now all the characters need to be dragged to a corn field, & shot execution style.

Enough.

Fuck out of here. The series finale literally couldn't have been more perfect.
>>
>>55397117
I'd believe that if we were talking about The Office, but no way for Parks & Rec. Writing got progressively better and better and was fucking perfect in season 6 and 7
You couldn't have asked for a better ending than the one we got at the end of season 7
>>
>>55397190
I couldn't tell you. Haven't watched it. Lost interest.

What a horrible character. Everything dropped off the last couple seasons and a lot of the people became caricatures of themselves. Season 2-4 were fucking great tho.
>>
>>55397312
I was clearly using future tense. I said will there ever be. Not was there ever in the past.

But you are wrong, The office was better for about 2 seasons, but overall much worse, Community had one elite season and was otherwise just ok. 30 Rock was probably the closest of that time frame, but not quite
>>
>>55397312
30 rock sucked as.
Tiny Fey is shit..
Community was barely tolerable.
>>
>>55397312
>Office
I'll give you that. Around season 6 it started to get a little whacky and goofy to the point where it was unrealistic, but Michael stayed consistent and became the show's one anchor. The second he left it all went down hill. Characters became weird shadows of themselves
>Community
Close
>30 Rock
For me not even close
>>
>>55397369
Craig wasn't even in many scenes
>>
>>55396750
Dance Gavin Dance or Zach Hill

odd dubs confirm DGD
even dubs for Zach
>>
>>55397312
>Office
It was, until Micheal left.
The show turned to absolute shit when Micheal left.
>Community
Fuck you, anon. I really want to agree with you there, but Community took a massive nosedive after Harmon left. It's just barely getting back on its feet.
I loved Community, once.
>30 Rock
Eh. Too hit or miss for me.
>>
>>55397369
>season 2-4
are you fucking kidding me? For one craig wasn't in THAT many scenes, and season 2 had fucking mark brandanowitz, worst character of any tv show ever. Once he finally left the writing started to pick up and I'm so glad he was never mentioned at all after that. Shit character and a shit actor
>>
>>55396750
Godspeed

>>55397414
>>55396750
I'd go with DGD since they just dropped a new album
>>
>>55397435
mark was fine
the real shit character was anne
>>
I think we can all agree that Arrested Development S1-S3 is the indisputable GOAT
>>
>>55397435
I heard Mark was there just to be the Frank "Grimey" Grimes of the show.
The level-headed "is this really happening right now?" guy.

Thankfully he fell off the face of the earth of his own volition.
>>
>>55397405
He still sabotaged every scene he was in. And all of the characters were pushed to extreme versions of themselves. The show had a big dropoff towards the end
>>
>>55396779
Yes. But it was also syndicated on TBS.
>>
>>55397454
>Ann's only character development was that she became Leslie's friend
At least the writers make fun of her blandness, like when she realizes she just absorbs the personality of whoever she's dating.
>>
>>55397466
I think the 3rd to last season was the low point, it ended really high, sure not like season 2-4, but still higher than any other long running network show. I think by a huge margin. 30 Rock is really the only other one that didn't go to complete mediocrity by the end

Both were shit characters but you can't sit there with a straight face and tell me Mark "Oh, Leslie um......yeah no don't do that" BrandanoQuitz was "fine"
He was a piece of shit to Leslie, a boring as shit person, and I don't even care that andy was trying to win anne back but he was a dick to andy too
>>55397463
Yeah he was the show's "straight man"

The show turned to shit when it was remade in America.

I am pretty sure many people have my opinion, actually. And if you don't, then you have objectively shit taste in comedy. You prefer cheesy, in-your-face, cheap humor to clever, subtle, and creative humor.

>>55397655
literally no one thinks the english version was better, especially not critics

Just because it's less popular doesn't mean nobody likes it. And I'm sorry, I just don't understand how anybody could find Michael Scott funnier than David Brent.
>>
>>55397671
Just give up. Brits think they have a monopoly on comedy even though the last genuinely funny thing to come from that dingy little island was Monty Python.

When was the last time engalnd made a top tier comedy show? Almost very single one of the best comedies in the last 10 years is american
>>
>>55397815
Well, then, as fedoric as it sounds, I think most people just don't get the show. It's a different type of comedy than the US version in that has multiple layers of subtlety. It's much less obvious in its delivery, as it doesn't give you the cue to when you should be a laughing or when a joke is being made. It's much more realistic and, unfortunately, I think a lot people aren't used to that and just write off the entire show.

>>55397190
writing towards the end was pretty bad. the jokes were okay, but the conflict between leslie and ron felt completely fucking forced, and the grizzle arc as a whole was tactless and generally unfunny.

The IT Crowd was pretty great

>>55397851
I've seen a lot of US Office episodes and Michael's character just doesn't seem nearly as funny to me. He's just too obnoxious sometimes, just like every other character in every other sitcom.
>>
>>55397984
The US version is just shitty "le awkward cringe" humor.
>>
>>55398133
Exactly. It's Reddit-tier humor.
>>
>>55398181
>Exactly. It's Reddit-tier humor.
It's a trend that caught on in the mid-late 2000s, and I think it's still languishing around somehow.

I prefer witty humor to this "act like Kristen Wiig and milk the joke way too long" sort of stuff.
>>
>>55397949
Peep Show

There's a ton of high tier shows as well but they are just too short to really leave a lasting impression. Early 2000s was a great time for British comedy, more recent stuff has been less inspired.

literally too deep for you.

That was 15 years ago, 9 if you start counting from the very end, which would mean it BARELY qualifies.

>but I'm just baffled as to how people don't like 30 rock
Tina Fey is unfunny, at least she tries, but she's like poison to comedy with her forced "le so quirky" writing.

>>55398515
Must be tough having such a poor sense of humour.

Uh... maybe.

Kek. Intellectualism is fine but if you have to analyze comedy and decide it's funny then it's not fucking funny. People that think that everything has to be deep to be enjoyable are usually autistic dweebs, and not as smart as they think they are.
