Comedy has never been this funny.
This video suggests that fans of certain critically acclaimed comedies are always comedy bullies who hate on you for not liking their shows. I shall unfortunately be a target of most of them, because most of these so-called comedies are not even funny, at least not in my opinion.

Community is the rare exception. Being written by self-confessed tropers, it's the wet dream of the rest of us. The laughs come a mile a minute, something I can't really say about most other sitcoms (with the exception of Modern Family). The characters are so much fun to watch while they interact in their crazy ways.

In short, I am highly ashamed that this great show has unfortunately been associated with Fan Myopia bullies. I am living proof that this show can be liked by anyone who isn't into niche and/or snob comedy (and I'm surprised this show could be considered either) like Louie or Parks And Recreation. And that Community fans are not by definition comedy bullies. I am also of the more realistic school that isn't continuously clamoring #sixseasonsandamovie, because while that would be awesome, I would hope that the show doesn't suffer in quality as a result. That said, quality remains strong going into season four, even without Dan Harmon at the helm. Best of luck to this one!
So...um...all fans of Louie and P&R are snobs and assholes, is what you're saying here.

I'm not saying all of those fans are assholes. But there are definitely assholes among them. I know because I've found myself the target of funny looks and questioning of my sanity for not being into Louie, P&R, Arrested Development, etc.

Call it Accentuating The Negative.

...but there are no asshole Community fans.

His whole review is trying to defend the show despite the fact it has some asshole fans (at least that's how I read it). I assumed that sentence was meant to read 'can be liked even by those' instead of 'anyone who isn't'. It's a bit of an ambiguous sentence ( you could read it as Community is this, like Louie or Parks and Recreation)

Two things:

1. I love Parks and Rec. I'm pretty sure I'm not a snob, so I'm hoping that I just fall into the niche. Though I'm not going to dispute your point about bullying fans, because I've experienced it.

2. I loved Community even before I was a troper, which underlines that I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment of the show's appeal to a wide audience. Now that I am a troper, I like it that much more.

As far as I'm concerned, Community is in a league of its own. It's a brilliant show.
