How has this show not won an Emmy?.. :facepalm:

By far the funniest and most well written show on TV.

Used to be a lot funnier. The last few seasons fell off, although the current one has potential.

First few seasons were truly hilarious.

After being lame for a couple of seasons, this season has been excellent.

Seen a couple of episodes. It's funny though filled with really despicable scummy characters especially Dennis and Dee.

I watched the first few episodes on Netflix last night. Found it a tad crude and over the top.

Not sure now whether to invest my precious evenings to making it to the latter seasons. Is there a particular season I should start watching it from? Will I lose much in way of references to previous seasons or back story?

A regrettable side effect was it making me homesick (if one can be homesick for one's adopted home) for Pennsylvania, where I spent seven glorious years before being forced to move to miserable Midwestern Minnesota :(

Feel your pain. I was in Buffalo,NY for two years, couldn't wait to get out.

This I can agree with. It often goes over the top. However, there are some laughs.

Right now Buffalo doesn't seem too bad, to me that is. Buffalo wouldn't be too far from the Catskills or the Adirondacks. The Midwest on the other hand is uniformly, disgustingly flat. There's a gaping hole on the horizon where the Ridge and Valley Appalachians used to be, back in Central Pennsylvania :(

My parents live in Long Island, NY. Upstate NY would be a far better proposition for me compared to MN.

Of course, your mileage may vary, as the Yanks are wont to say ;)

I had fun in Buffalo. Despite the weather and all, the cultural scene is pretty good. Lots of good restaurants and parks. I guess knowing that I'm there for only two years helped too.

Whenever I think of Minnesota, that movie Fargo comes to mind. But I hear it's beautiful in the summer, with lots of lakes and natural beauty.

Fargo! I watched it for the first time just the other day. The thick accent in the film is probably more prevalent north of Minneapolis-St.Paul, but there are certain pronunciations one can't help notice.

For instance, they say "baig" (as in Obaidullah Baig) instead of bag. At the Target, right after I had moved here, the lady asked me "Do you want a baig for it?" She was asking if I wanted a bag of course, but what I heard was "Do you want to beg for it?" I almost blurted out that I don't beg and I can pay, thankyouverymuch.

They say "sucker" instead of "lollipop." After my kids' visit to the hairdresser, the lady said "do you want a sucker?" I looked around and almost said "Suck who?"

There's the soda/pop/coke divide too. The Midwest is pop country. I ask for sodas and they look at each other and know immediately that I'm a recent arrival.

And these Scandinavians are abnormally tall. I'm 6', and I feel dwarfed. I've never really encountered women taller than me, until I moved here.

All things considered, the Twin Cities are very nice: clean, low cost of living, educated populace, excellent art and music scene, great schools. It's just wrong for me, because of the distance from the folks.

By the way, where do you live these days?

"Baig" haha... That's funny!

I'm in Nashville, TN. It's a neat little city. Has a friendly vibe to it. Rest of the country probably just think of it as Country Music Mecca but it's got a lot to offer, plus it's growing.

A friend of mine works at Siemens at Nashville. He loves it. And I've been forced to watch enough HGTV to know that the cost of living is astonishingly low for what is supposed to be a great, up-and-coming city.

My criteria of how good a city is esp. in terms of arts, culture, food and nightlife has become the number of gays living there. Somehow they always end up living in the most hippest and coolest cities. So before moving to Nashville, a few times when I was there and visited a mall or grocery store, it was comforting to see their presence around in good numbers.

Actually if you have Netflix, I would highly recommend Portlandia. Fred Armisen from SNL and Carrie Brownstein make up the cast. Short clips or vignettes commenting on the absurdity of modern day über cool hippie lifestyle, though based in Portland can be related to any big cosmopolitan city. The neurosis and high self regard of the dwellers of these habitats is presented with masterful quirkiness and delivery.

It pretty much stays the same tbh, try and stick with it into the second season if you can. None of the characters are meant to be sympathetic and you're not meant to relate to them in any way. They're all pieces of crap (Except Charlie, he's just mental) so you don't feel guilty about laughing at all the bad stuff that happens to them. If that isn't your cup of tea then whatever, there's always Parks and Recreation and Ron Swanson's glorious moustache

I've watched all of Parks and Recreation. I find Leslie Knope irresistible.

I might have a thing for April, doesn't take crap from anyone :11: Councilman Jamm suddenly turned into an awesome character by the end of season 5 as well, nobody could have seen that coming.
