clearly just trying to copy The Office at that time


Probably not a massive surprise given that:

Quote:
Ben Silverman...asked Greg Daniels to create a spin-off of The Office. Daniels co-created Parks and Recreation with Michael Schur, who had been a writer on The Office. The two spent months considering ideas for the new series and debating whether to make it a stand-alone rather than a spin-off.

Yeah, I’m not sure why you’re singling me out when a number of people have said that they’ve switched off after the first couple because of them being unfunny, but if you feel you need to make a point somehow, :shrug:.

I'm not attempting to single you out or trying to make a point, I'm merely replying to the post you made.

Starting to think Mimi watched a different show to the rest of us.


If you’re in a group of people where’s there a divide of opinion or peer difference, a bully or someone playing for power or dominance will often single out a single person with an opposing opinion to make a point of that one person having a different opinion from the rest of the group. Person X has a different opinion ion from the rest of ‘us’. They’ll often phrase it so that that one person seems to be different from the entire rest of the group, whether that’s true or not. Often they’ll do this to one of the people they see as weakest in a group. By singling one person out as an ‘US versus that one person’ in the phrasing it often stops those others who also have the opposing view from saying so as humans naturally want to have the ‘right’ view. It happens loads in playgrounds whether it’s brand of trainers, characters on backpacks, anything. Even more in offices and meetings. Relationships, friendships, whatever. So, whether you think you are or not, you are making a point and singling me out. Whether you see it as bullying or simply bolstering the validity of your opinion by making it out to be the popular opinion against what you paint as the weaker, lone voice, it has the same effect.


SHUT UP JERRY

(Not being mean to you Meems - it's just that what you have described perfectly fits the group's behaviour towards Jerry in Parks and Rec)

Also I think every single classic ensemble comedy gets a lot better over the first few hours, as the cast and writers knit together.


My rule of thumb is most US shows peak in their third and fourth seasons.

Man, Firefly is doing to be great!

We need a new 20-min episode comedy show now we've finished S4 of B99. Any suggestions? Preferably on Netflix or Prime Video.

Detectorists. Funny enough but more than anything a relaxing and lovely place to spend 20 minutes. Like Witcher without the war. In Essex.

I've had Derry Girls recommended to me recently but haven't started watching it myself yet. The helicopter pitch is apparently Father Ted meets The Inbetweeners.

Also, and this is going back a bit, but if you haven't watched Raised By Wolves then you need to fix that ASAP as it's fucking incredible.

I haven't really watched the show except for that one episode where Eric Andre was The Joker and I only watched that because I'd been saying for quite some time that he should play The Joker.

Having seen lots of comments along the lines of "Travellers is surprisingly good", I gave it a shot. 5 episodes in and, well, Travellers is surprisingly good.

Don’t sign him up to the GazChap comedy podcast without content warning, first. Humour differences aside the segments of you and that Hungarian man with all those goats at the waterwheel are just disturbing :/
