HippoJuice News Archives from November 2009:
I figured the only way to settle this fairly and officially is to do a comparison analysis chart of the three. Take a look and you decide for yourself.
Obviously The Office is the big dog in this pond, but after 6 seasons I think the quality is waning. I'm not really interested in the plot now that Jim and Pam are married and Jim got his promotion.
Community has a great comedic cast, but I feel like sometimes the jokes are dead on and other times I don't find myself laughing. It's a great start though, and I hope NBC gives it time to come into it's own.
I have to say the winner has to go to Modern Family. It has Lloyd as a creator (he was Doc Brown...), it definitely has the hottest female, and the two gay guys ALWAYS make me laugh. It has the same filming style as The Office, but since it's still in it's first season, it's still fresh and full of promise. Also, even though dysfunctional families have been done over and over again, this is an original concept of putting all sorts of people into one family. Also, the show has Ed O'Neill, who was the king of the dysfunctional family as Al Bundy in Married With Children.
As the winner, let me play for you my favorite clip from the show, and what made me fall in love with it.
