Goofs

Throughout the series, it is established that Shirley is a "Baptist" (general, but enough info); however, in various episodes she does the Catholic "Sign of the Cross" (signum crucis). If she were a baptist (any variation) this would not be a ritual of her faith. However, there isn't any prohibition about making the Sign, either, if she happened to feel like doing it. See more »

Great ensemble work with fresh ideas about relationships
29 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The promos for this series really turned me off. Another dreary, predictable story about the uncaring horny guy pursuing the lovely stand-offish female? Wow was I wrong! These characters are refreshingly complex and give us lots of surprises in an all too short half-hour. The concept of a bunch of mismatched community college students bumbling through life is rich with possibilities and, speaking as a former community college student, has the ring of truth all the way through. All the actors are wonderful -- especially Gillian Jacobs and Alison Brie. The cherry on top is the amazing Chevy Chase, so oft-criticized for being the self-indulgent ham, who delivers as nuanced and compelling ensemble-sensitive performance as you are ever going to see. My sense is that this show has got some serious legs!
