    Default justin's coming out of the closet, so i might as well come out and say it: i think community is better than the wire

    through season 1 and the first half of season 2. sprinted through it in three days. keep in mind i have serious maths tests coming up this week that pretty much determine my future, so yes, that was a retarded thing to do, but it's also testament to how damn brilliant the show is.
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    also guys stop saying 'x is better than y'. its annoying me. just say you like community more than wire rather than conflating your addiction to the show with critical acclaim.

    i'm nearly at the end of season 1 and I must say it's only just become good now. beginning and middle was a moderately ok tv show akin to friends or some garbage like that except with a bit more swagger. these last three episodes have been pretty dope however. i'm with god also that it's not better than the wire

    also britta is not the typecast hot female at all, i think the show is just about self-referential enough that it doesn't need a Rachel or an Elliot to make it good

    i didnt like either of those episodes very much. dungeons and dragons was probably my favorite. i didnt much care for most of the zany 'concept' episodes really, but d&d was made by pierce.

    i never liked weeds. too boring a show for too little a premise. eh, maybe i like shows to be bigger and movies to be simpler. idk

    what the fuck. i had a radical idea about four students doing shit degrees becoming marijuana dealers in the east end of london. turns out both sections of my idea have already been done, the former by a show I just found recently and the latter by this show called 'Weeds' you mentioned. fuck the ubiquity of popular culture.

    There's one thing about matching up PD personalities with The Wire because its scale is absolutely massive and it has different themes etc. I don't know if we could do the same with Community because it's really just eight or nine characters and a host of background characters with one or two recurring characteristics.

    BEFORE ANYONE GOES INTO MATCHING UP PD WITH COMMUNITY
