Trivia

In a 2018 New Yorker profile of Donald Glover, journalist Tad Friend wrote that while working together on "Community," Chevy Chase racially attacked Donald Glover on- and off-camera. "Chase...often tried to disrupt [Glover's] scenes and made racial cracks between takes. ('People think you're funnier because you're black.') Harmon said, 'Chevy was the first to realize how immensely gifted Donald was, and the way he expressed his jealousy was to try to throw Donald off. I remember apologizing to Donald after a particularly rough night of Chevy's non-P.C. verbiage, and Donald said, "I don't even worry about it."' Glover told me, 'I just saw Chevy as fighting time-a true artist has to be O.K. with his reign being over. I can't help him if he's thrashing in the water. But I know there's a human in there somewhere-he's almost too human.' (Chase said, 'I am saddened to hear that Donald perceived me in that light.')" See more »

Finally!
1 November 2009 | by ovanklotSee all my reviews

Finally, after a long dry-spell, I have found a live-action TV show that actually makes me laugh again.

Watching this show made me burst out laughing so many times. The script is wonderfully written and the actors have excellent comedic timing to match it. Sure, there are a few less-than-funny parts about it, but then again, it's not sketch comedy, so it can't be funny all the time.

McHale leads nicely, but both he and Gillian Jacobs do a weird 180 degree turn in character after a couple of episodes. It was supposed to be a step meant to make them seem more human and vulnerable, rather than absurd, comedic characters, but ends up making you a bit uneasy. A special kudos goes to Ken Jeong, for portraying one of the funnier characters portrayed on screen as of late.
