Trivia

In the pilot, Michael, Michael and David's neighbors were Jennifer, Stacy and Karen; Karen was played by Rashida Jones. But after then, Karen disappeared and was replaced by Amy, played by Samantha Buck; nothing else was changed. The pilot was filmed on location in a New York apartment, which explains the differences in lighting and the appearance of the hallway scenes in the subsequent episodes. See more »

Groundbreaking comedy
29 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the post-Friends era where the "sitcom is dead," the new Comedy Central series Stella proves that great comedy is about innovation, not repetition. It's a difficult task to describe what makes the Stella trio of Michael Ian Black, David Wain, and Michael Showalter so side-splittingly funny. Perhaps it's that one never knows what they will do next. The three ne'er-do-wells find themselves propelled from one exceedingly far-fetched situation to the next (being caught "in tableau", enjoying various dipping sauces for food they've found in the dumpster). This series will appeal to drama geeks, fans of 80s pop culture, dark humorists, and anyone sick of the rote, by-the-numbers that constitutes typical sitcom material. It finds a welcome home at Comedy Central, and will soon stand alongside other eccentric hits such as South Park, Chapelle Show, and Reno 911.
