Community Recap: Series Premiere

at . Comments

With apologies to The Office, 30 Rock, The Simpsons and Family Guy, Community might be the funniest show to ever air.

Okay, that might be strong, premature praise. But it's difficult to think of a sitcom that got off to a more hilarious start than this NBC series last night.

Led by Joel McHale and Chevy Chase, the cast is perfect and the dialogue is sharp, quick and witty. A few of the subtle jokes and references even reminded us of Arrested Development, as big of a compliment as we can give a program.

Enjoy a rundown of the pilot episode and its characters now, as well as a list of a few great quotes below.
