From The Washingon Post, “NBC Sticks to the Script for Six New Prime-Time Series“:
The other comedy, “Community,” is about a study group that perfectly reflects the student body at a community college — community colleges, NBC notes, being a gathering ground for losers, newly divorced housewives and old people trying to keep their minds active as they circle the drain of eternity. The old-person role has gone to Chevy Chase, while Joel McHale of “The Soup” is our hero/loser — a lawyer stripped of his law degree because he lied about graduating from college.
This series could represent the kind of popular endorsement of a setting and an idea that energizes the culture, bringing more and more skills-seeking students into community colleges. You know, like Barney Miller did for the police.
Oh, wait. It stars Chevy Chase. Never mind.
