They are kinda alike except Community doesn't have Zach Braff and for that it is automatically the better show.

and Scrubs lacks Alison Brie :whistling:

but still in terms of the meta-ness & humour it's pretty reminiscent to me. And you can almost line up the characters: Troy & Abed is JD & Turk, unfunny blonde girl is unfunny blonde girl, Chevy Chase is the grumpy old doc whose name I forget, Chang is the much inferior version of the Janitor.

yes Chang is shit, which is why I said 'much inferior'. but he basically acts as the Janitor in how he exists outside the main group & adds weirdness.

And I didn't mean Dr Cox but the other guy..(imdbs it...) Dr. Kelso.

Oh, that guy. He's lame too. Meh. I always saw JD/Turk in Abed/Troy, but I don't really think the others match up that well. Comedies should never go for more than a few seasons though, the characters always become caricatures and everything starts to get annoying and repetitive.

Kind of like how Modern Family went after Season 1.


30 Rock went that way for two seasons until they decided to end it properly... then it got really good again.

You just trashed the only two characters I can even stand on Scrubs (well, those two and Bob Kelso). I guess Turk is fine, too.

Nevermind, read that wrong.

Chang rules though

I only kept watching for the Janitor, I didn't really like anyone else :P

The Janitor's dislike for JD always made me smile.

My favourite bit was when JD was confronting him about seeing his penis. I still watch it regularly and die laughing every time.
