Flight of the Conchords holds up
Scrubs is actually good
Louie is very good but the man is a cunt but I’m rating it on the show itself
Parks and Rec is rubbish, as is Community

scrubs is equally as funny as parks and rec/30 rock.

ie: ‘often quite funny. Sometimes terrible’

I am pinching your face!

okay that’s fine

I think Scrubs suffers from a mid-2000s (need to fact check my dates) tendency towards “wacky” characterisation. Unfortunately, that’s all I remember, so I’ve forgotten if the jokes were decent.

“30 Rock = quite shit” is my hot take for the thread

Don’t think that’s a hot take m9

Gave it a 2 for Jason Segal and Alison Hanigan in spite of the writer’s efforts to get it a 1 with Barney’s character.
