Holy shit watching Parks and Rec and saw this. One of their writers has to be a /mu/tant right?
>itt: people argue that /mu/tant means "comes to /mu" rather than someone shares taste like /mu/s
haha oh wow
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
>craig being his obnoxious self
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.
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
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
For me not even close
It was, until Micheal left.
The show turned to absolute shit when Micheal left.
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.
Eh. Too hit or miss for me.
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
I'd go with DGD since they just dropped a new album
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.
>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.
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
Yeah he was the show's "straight man"
the american version was objectively better, it eventually went to shit to but at its prime it was way the fuck better than the english one, and I am pretty sure no one actually has your opinion
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.
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.
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.
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.
>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.
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.
If you don't like stuff like Parks and Rec, Always Sunny, Silicon Valley, The League, Community, South Park, 30 Rock, Scrubs, Workaholics, Veep, Eastbound and Down etc?
What do you like?
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.
