Okay, I admit that sometimes I don't take the good advice that friends are trying to give me. Sometimes it's because I'm stubborn. Other times, it's because I just don't feel like I've got enough time to act on that advice. So I take the easy way out and go with my gut instinct instead. Then I look back and realize that I should have listened when someone was genuinely trying to give me a good word.
Throughout the past year, the Charlottan has been trying to convince me to watch the show Community. Over and over he told me how much I'd love it, how funny I'd think it was. I nodded my friend and pretended to listen to him. I may have even told him I'd give it a look. But then I never did. And for that, my friend, I am sorry. Because now, thanks to the magic that is Hulu, I've been catching up on the entire first season of Community. And I'm here to tell you that it's quickly become my favorite new sitcom. It's dry, it's witty, it's just... well... fun to watch.
The show centers around Jeff (Joel McHale, who you may know from E!'s The Soup), a disbarred (is that the correct word?) attorney who is forced to go back to school and begins taking classes at Greendale Community College. Part of his class load is a beginning Spanish course taught by Señor Chang (Ken Jeong, of The Hangover). To get by in this class (and to meet the hot blond girl, Jeff forms a study group, including an old guy named Pierce, played by Chevy Chase.
So today, I give you a clip from that very program. Two of the characters, Abed and Troy, often have something to do during the end credits. In this particular episode, they make up a rap using a number of Spanish words and phrases. To my international readers, I apologize, but you can't see the video. At least I don't think you can. I don't think Hulu can be seen outside the US. You guys might just have to take my word for it. Everyone else, enjoy.
