TV&Satellite Week are reporting that US Sitcom 'Community' is coming to UK screens via Viva from 6th October...

No, I'd never heard of Viva either...turns out its run by MTV and is available via Freeview, Vigin (Ch 313) and Sky (Ch 358).  Looking at their website it appears to specialise in various reality and z-list celeb shows and to be aimed at the teen market. 

Considering that Community has picked up some pretty decent reviews in the US it seems a shame that it should end up in such a television backwater here in the UK...

NOOOOOO It needs to be Channel 4 HD, what a masterful show, screw Viva.

So, you were never subjected to this during every ad break last year?- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHr9O30Q0nY  Lucky you.... (shudders)

One of my favourite new shows.
The paintball episode is one of the best things I've seen and rivals the Spaced gunfight.
Abed and Senor Chang are the best characters, with Alison Brie (Trudy from Mad Men) providing the eye candy.
It takes a while to get going but stick with it as it's well worth watching.

Not much of a Senor Chang fan, but Troy and Abed, those guys rule.

It will still be one year behind US speed, Im currently watching season 1 now in time for season 2 which I believe is starting September 23rd.
Viva is one of the worst channels and it's definately a shame that such a great show is being shown there, I was hoping that eventually E4 might pick this up.

It's an average show. Hardly funny - though it has a charm that makes it watchable.

Surprised it has been picked up so late in the UK.

This has been showing on 3e in Ireland for a few weeks now, it's really good although i find the main female lead Britta really annoying and she's not that hot either but the supporting cast is very good, Chevy Chase in particular he has a quotable line in almost every episode he's a ledge defo recommend it

Just been channel hopping and the pilot episode is being shown now. Caught a few minutes and I wouldn't have minded seeing the whole thing.

Only really heard about this because Donald Glover wanted to try out for Peter Parker in the new Spider-Man film, but will check it out.

So, did any newbies catch it last night?

I tried to help spread the word around, didn't really work, but I enjoyed watching the first 2 eps again, for the 7th time...
Besides the ad break lengths, Viva did a good job, the bump for the ad breaks is nice.

Im gonna try and get my dad and brother to watch the repeat tonight, although I have warned them to stick with it even if they dont like the pilot as it gets funnier as it goes along.

Looking forward to starting season 2 myself

As you should, the second episode was a brilliant piece of crazy, the first was funny, but a little too much.

The funniest show that I'm watching at the moment. Just hope it stays on Viva and doesn't get snapped up by a Sky channel.

It's a shame they aired episode 6 fourth but it's not a big deal, it really is brilliant.
