I thought it was be fun to try something different than that In Memorium Community thread which has basically turned into an Alison Brie masturbation thread.

But as you see in the poll, I'm keeping the reference in there.

So I can have masturbation material.

There needs to be an "All of the above" option . What I really love about the show is how creative it is, and that they're not afraid to take chances. "My Dinner with Abed" is a perfect example.

I watch because it is quite possibly my favourite show of all time. I hated the first few episodes and didn't watch again until late in the first season, probably around the paintball episode. I decided to give it a second go and fell in love with show. It also has a great rewatchability factor for me.

Here's some interesting comments from some old threads from the 1st season:

Then again I can't stand 99% of sit-coms on now anyway. Tried it because I love McHale on The Soup and it's on after The Office - the only network comedy I do watch.

Chase is OK. Watching McHale makes me sad because he's so much funnier than this show allows him to be. The rest - blah. And Abed - double blah. Just lame characters.

Why can't we be sexually attracted to Joel McHale? Or Chevy Case?

"It's got..." is horrible grammar.

What if we keep them SFW?

I wasn't a huge fan of the show at first, but it grew on me over time. I like the cast and I just enjoy rewatching episodes, because I find new things that I never noticed before. I love the clever little details in each show.

Voted it's funny, but if that wasn't an option, Troy and Abed would have done it.

I'm insulted that I'm sexually attracted to Chevy Chase is not an option.

There's no Pop Pop answer ... B.A. Do you realize you chose everything including that you don't like the show?

Re: I Watch Community because.....(Fill in the blank)

To the First Season comments defense, the show did start off as a fairly typical sitcom about a guy going to Community college to get his law degree back. It showed a little spark but was a little difficult to watch on a weekly basis. All it took was some drugs at a Halloween party to change that - so much so they could play the entire series from that point as occurring in Chase's head.

Also from my understanding Chevy wasn't so into it for Season 1 but kind of warmed up to everyone in Season 2.



And after seeing Emily Blunt and Alison Brie singing (karaoke) the f-bomb laced Total Eclipse of the Heart I just really want to see them go at it.

I've noticed the poll accepts multiple responses, so if you wanted to select "All of the above" you could just vote for all of the individual responses.
