"I'm more of a fast blinking, stoic, removed, uncomfortably self aware type." Name is Sheila, 23 years old, birthday in October. Community is everything, I'm starting to sound like Abed. I watch old movies (1895 to 1980), I practically never watch recent movies (1990 to present day). I like some tv THEWIRE.
Here’s an idea: Community is a postmodern masterpiece.
Though the TV show Community has never achieved huge ratings, it has a passionate cult following, including us here at Idea Channel. The show plays with genre and narrative in such a creative way that it brings to mind the cultural and artistic theory of Postmodernism. Previous TV series have been self-referential and culturally reflective, but none so successfully as Community. The show flips traditional expectations so consistently that it questions their importance in the first place. And it has brought the word “meta” into the cultural vernacular, to boot.
