    These comics are an SNL bit that was amusing once but they pushed it to be an entire franchise anyway.

      Yeah, the comics have run their course and gotten old at this point. However, they made a TV show on AppleTV and it’s actually really well done. It has Danny Pudi, Abed in Community, as one of the main voice actors.

      Edit: fixed Netflix to AppleTV

        I haven’t given the show a chance because the comics were kind of getting old and I worried they wouldn’t translate to a TV show.

        Isn’t it on AppleTV?

          Yeah, my bad, it is AppleTV. I updated my comment.

          I do really think the TV show is worth a watch though. The play on language is really only a background element of the world buikding they do. It sets up a fun unique city with some lightweight interweaving of stories.
