Yeah, it got really strange, just this side of sci-fi.

But I love butt-kicking women. That's the reason I watched Buffy for a while.

Soooooo painful. Also, what other show has arguably its best episode ever the first time out? There are some rivals, but it's quite hard to top that Kate Winslet one for me.

I'd even argue that it surpasses it from a pure comedy standpoint, yet it rarely drifts into caricature. It's a more true ensemble than the American Office as well. The only dead weight is Anne, but her interactions with Rob Lowe's character have redeemed her to some extent.

Parks & Rec and Community are firing at all cylinders, as noted above. I haven't seen much of this past season of Always Sunny, though I've heard it was a bit spotty. Bored to Death is amusing. In a welcome surprise, the last gasp of Michael Scott on The Office has given the show some purpose and direction again.

I'd love to get into Party Down soon, though I'm not sure if that's in the OP's wheelhouse, particularly if Disney Channel shows populate the viewing list. No offense.
