Like a lot of ambitious TV, it has been a magnet for a small, oddball cadre of viewers, the ones who analyze comic beats in the manner of Talmudic scholars, wear T-shirts with slogans that only the elect will understand, and criticize tiny flaws in a thread that goes a thousand comments deep. The show succeeded. It found us. There just weren’t a lot of us. (via Culture Desk: “Community” Had Low Ratings. So What? : The New Yorker)

I didn’t read a lot of comics, but Scud and La Cosa Nostroid were kinda my jams. That they were co-written by Dan Harmon, who went on to create Community, is 1) fuhgeddabout it, and 2) not talked about enough. Next thing, you’re gonna tell me Sam Kieth is, like, Vince Gilligan’s childhood best friend or something.
