The smart-ass laddishness of all of Jeff’s jokes mean that he steals almost every scene he’s in (unless Abed, Pierce or Chang come up with a zinger) and his particular brand of philosophising condescension and “guy humour” would be right at home in “It’s Always Sunny”.
Yeah right! There’s no way Britta’s anyone’s favourite character, she sucks! But I bet her self-righteous, head-in-the-clouds bullshit would down a treat in the US parks department. If the activism thing doesn’t work out for you Britta, you know where to go.
Pierce’s boorish, controversial and occasionally senile interjections are reminiscent of Jack Donaghy, the character played with suave aplomb by Alec Baldwin in ’30 Rock’ as he micro-manages all aspects of the network. If you’ve got a thing for older men, ’30 Rock’ is the series for you (or possibly ‘Diagnosis Murder’).
Annie’s generally conservative bookishness is the perfect counterpart to Jonathan Ames’ literary liberalism, while both are often prone to random acts of impetuous idiocy. Forget about Suzanne, Jonathan! Annie’s the one for you.
If it’s geeky, surreal and slightly autistic humour that floats your boat, check out Abed Nadir’s British equivalent in Richard Ayoade – who also guest stars in the far zanier but less nerdy show ‘The Mighty Boosh’.
Shirley’s devotion to her kids is matched by Louis C.K.’s, who clearly loves his two little girls so much that he misses no opportunity to ridicule them in his stand-up shows at every turn. If you haven’t already checked out Louis’ comedy material, drop everything immediately and watch it right now.
Another British cult classic, the characters in ‘Spaced’ share a similar preoccupation with crappy B-movies, video games and general pop culture references as Troy and Abed are frequently found riffing on.
The Dean of Greendale Community College was surely a Reno cop in a former life. What with his propensity to dressing up in ever more garish costumes, throwing hissy fits and acting like a “pansexual imp”, Pelton could most definitely protect and serve.
One of the finest minor characters in any sitcom or film, Chang’s world-weary, anti-social and sometimes wildly irrational behaviour makes him a tiny, hyperactive, American-Asian version of Bernard Black and Manny Bianco combined.
