New TV Season!!! Start Your Tivos!

Started well with a great Office episode and then a new fun comedy--Community. It is based a community college, where a typical bunch of very different folks form a study group. Any show based in an educational environment is going to get my interest, and this one was actually pretty funny. Very deliberate references to Breakfast Club didn't hurt, plus the romantic interest of the lead was told several times she looks like Elisabeth Shue, and the truth of that also does not hurt.

So, the general goal each year is for us not to get addicted to any new shows, and NBC is doing its best to make that happen by blowing five hours of primetime on Jay Leno. But Community looks to be a keeper.
