TV Shows Worth Watching - Top 5 - Comedy

First of all, thank you so much for the huge response that I received to my last article. I’ve read every single one of your comments (more than once) and I’m very grateful for them, especially since I’ve found myself eager to watch at least several of the recommended shows. So really BIG THANKS! Now, I have to admit that until not so long ago, I haven’t even watched too many comedies, so here I’m even more interested to read about your favorites, but first, there goes my list, in alphabetical order. Enjoy reading!

1. Community (2009-)
What’s it all about? Seven unusual people, including a suspended lawyer without degree, former anarchist, a pop-culture-obsessed film student, a single mother, compulsive over-achiever, former high school star quarterback and a millionaire with a tendency to bigotry, all studying at Greendale Community College, finds themselves joining a fictional study group, which unexpectedly becomes very real. Despite their many differences and flaws they form a close friendship and get together in all sorts of crazy and hillarious situations, often involving their unique(!) and very supportive Dean, and incompetent, unhinged Spanish teacher "Señor" Chang.
Why is it worth watching? It has to be THE most creative comedy on TV! With it’s brillant cast and creator Dan Harmon, things like meta-humor, parodies, animated episodes, Paintball Wars and Pillows&Blankets battles and so much more, fun is pretty much guaranteed!
Who’s playing? Fantastic ensemble: Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash and Chevy Chase.
Memorable quotes:
“Six seasons and a movie!”
“Just so you know Jeff, you're now creating six different timelines.”
“You've just stopped being a study group. You have become something unstoppable. I hereby pronounce you a Community”

2. Friends (1994-2004)
What’s it all about? Story about six friends, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross living in New York. It’s the show about their friendship, their love life, past, present, plans for the future, mistakes, successes, competitions, changes, weddings, divorces and hundreds of funny situations that they get into every single episode.
Why is it worth watching? Honestly, it’s the classic and it’s hard to imagine you’ve never seen it. But if you haven’t, then you’re in for a treat! Definitely my favorite TV comedy of all time! That says it all!
Who’s playing? Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schiwimmer and very impressive list of guest stars, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon, Christina Applegate, Julia Roberts, etc.
Memorable quotes:
“We were on a break”
“How you doin’?”
“I'm not so good with the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?”

3. Go On (2012-)
What’s it all about? It’s starting as a story of Ryan King, sportscaster, who’s trying to move on from the loss of his wife and joins (reluctantly) a grief support group. Even though it’s members (and leader with limited training) seem to be the strangest people he’s ever met, they soon turn out to be just the ones he needs. Balancing between happiness and pain, moving on and remembering, they’re slowly finding a way to go on with their lives, together.
Why is it worth watching? It’s my favorite new comedy of this fall! It does a great job with happy-sad aura, connecting funny bits with lovely, sweet moments usually at the end of each episode and has excellent cast, with Matthew Perry as it’s star!
Who’s playing? Matthew Perry, Laura Benanti, Julie White, Suzy Nakamura, Tyler James Williams, Brett Gelman, John Cho and more
Memorable quotes:
“She’s the only girl that I ever loved”
“It’s 1:23 am and there’s no one to call”
“They showed up in my house and told me they were coming here. I just want to say, from the bottom of my heart, that I took a prescription sleeping pill and I have no idea what’s happening here.”

4. How I Met Your Mother (2005-)
What’s it all about? In year 2030, Ted Mosby tells his kids the story about the events that led to his meeting with their mother. Set in New York (often in bar called MacLaren’s ), it’s the story about Ted, Marshall Eriksen, Lily Aldrin, Robin Scherbatsky and Barney Stinson, their friendship, love matters and all the crazy, stupid, romantic and fantastic stuff that come in between.
Why is it worth watching? The characters are what will make you fall in love with this show. The strangest connections, the funniest situations and great love stories will make you stay with it. It’s truly brilliant and you just can’t miss the show’s legen… wait for it… dary breakout character Barney.
Who’s playing? Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris.
Memorable quotes:
“Suit up!”
“It's gonna be legen... wait for it... dary!“
“Haaaaave you met Ted?”
“Challenge accepted!”

5. Parks and Recreation (2009-)
What’s it all about? It’s the story of Leslie Knope, a perky, waffles-loving, mid-level bureaucrat in the parks department of Pawnee, a fictional town in Indiana. She’s very ambitious and committed to the belief that government should provide a service for its people, and regularly goes above and beyond for the benefits of Pawnee's residents. The story follows Leslie and her friends and colleagues at their jobs and shows many, many funny aspects of their lives.
Why is it worth watching? Have to admit I haven’t seen the beginning of the series, I’ve started watching it late in S2, but it’s growing on me with each season. And the current one is just fantastic, my favorite without a doubt. The show’s not only brilliantly balanced, but it has some of the best characters and comedy performances on TV right now! Just watch and see!
Who’s playing? Remarkable Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Paul Schneider, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O'Heir and Retta
Memorable quotes:
“We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter. But work is third.”
“The less I know about other people’s affairs, the happier I am. I’m not interested in caring about people. I once worked with a guy for three years and never learned his name. Best friend I ever had. We still never talk sometimes.”
“I'm not afraid of cops. I have no reason to be I never break any laws, ever, because I'm deathly afraid of cops.”

Honorable Mentions: New Girl, Modern Family and Happy Endings

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
