It's weird that New Girl is now probably the best comedy on US network television.

New Girl was probably the best show last season too, but the lack of any more obvious competition has helped it this year. I really find myself missing 30 Rock after that stellar final season.

I agree that Community s3 was heading that way, but it still managed to pack in a lot of good stuff into that first half. Working in a vacuum really seems to harm a show like this as the show really peaked while it was airing and filming at the same time and they could respond to people's reactions.

That's a very good point, I'm sure if the new producers could have seen the responses the early episodes had gotten, the second half would have been very different, and perhaps better.

This is why I'd be interested in a Season 5.

And yeah, 30 Rock's final season was amazing. I also really liked Happy Endings Season 3, I hope it finds a home on cable like Cougar Town and can continue.

I didn't like Happy Endings 3 as much as 2, because I think the characters might be getting too many tics and quirks for my taste but it's still been very very funny. The Office has produced some interesting stuff as it winds down, but HIMYM has been getting very very poor. I have always been a big Ted\Robin fan but this year has been ecch.

I don't watch HIMYM or The Office anymore, they are too depressing to me now.

Try watching this week's Office, it's the last one before the finale and had some really nice stuff.

I enjoyed the episode but hadn't realized it was the season finale.

I didn't get a chance to watch this episode yet.

But I know it involves Darkest Timeline stuff. And I hate to say it, but upon reviewing I do not like Remedial Chaos Theory very much.

I feel like it wasn't very funny on repeated viewings, even tedious as the gimmick doesn't offer much variation.

People talk about how this show is inaccessible, and I think that episode or the video game episode are the most inaccessible episodes of the show period, and both episodes rely soley on their gimmicks to sell them and not much more.

Punchy is right that the show started going off the rails in season 3, while I like the season a lot on the whole, to me it's obvious that the show had the best balance in season 2, by a wide margin. They used gimmicky episodes to cater to their audience, but actually stuffed those episodes with some really solid stuff. Like the aforementioned claymation episode, big gimmick, but stuffed with fantastic character stuff that makes it worth rewatching every Christmas.

Parks and Rec's fifth season was majorly uneven. It's second half was much better than the first. I really hope that Leslie loses this recall next season so we don't have to see her obnoxious councilwoman storyline anymore.

I wrote a TV review? News to me. But being easily amused by mediocrity is something you and Punchy do definitely share, now that you mention it. Although the sexual tension between the two of you could only be split by a master of karate.
