The New Must See TV
Since its comedy heydays in the mid to late 90s, I haven’t been that impressed with too many NBC shows. Sure there was always The Office, which I love, but most of their new shows lacked that certain spark to keep me coming back for more. All that has changed since Community and Parks and Recreation premiered.
Taking a page from the comedy stylings of The Office, Parks and Recreation really adds to NBC’s Thursday night funfest. Amy Poehler is hilarious as Leslie – Pawnee, Indiana’s Deputy Director of the Parks and Recreation Department. Although her character does remind me of Michael Scott, the awkwardness is toned down enough to make this show a little less nerve racking to watch.
When I heard Joel McHale, of The Soup fame, was going to be starring in a new sitcom I couldn’t wait to see it. He is adorably hilarious on E! and I hoped that his charisma would carry over into his new role on Community. He did not disappoint! Of course, it didn’t hurt that NBC surrounded him with a great supporting cast, an innovative writing crew and a unique theme. (There is very little about this show that I can find fault in!)
If you haven’t had the chance to take in this comedy about a Spanish study group at Greendale Community College, I highly recommend you take the time to catch up. It is one of my favorite new shows of the past few years. (To be fair, I may have a soft spot for comedy in general – I’m also loving ABC’s new Wednesday night lineup. Here’s hoping Modern Family and The Middle are here to stay!)
Yvette Nicole Brown, Joel McHale & Alison Brie from Community are pictured attending a recent NBC Universal cocktail party. I wonder if the three of them coordinated their outfit choices for the evening! Either way, the actors offer three very different versions of the basic black dress shoe. Yvette is sporting a pair of black booties. A similar option might be the Report Kline Boot, currently on sale for $80.99. Joel chose a simple, black, men’s dress shoe. The Steve Madden Badd is very similar, and at $64.95 it’s available for a very ‘Goodd’ price. Last, but not least, you can score a more modernized version of Alison’s look with the Moda Spana Q-Up Pump.
