30 Rock

Like Community, 30 Rock was definitely one of the most popular shows of the late 2000s. Additionally, what people liked about Community were the millennial pop culture references and ensemble cast.

Where to watch: Hulu.

Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet

This show about a group of game developers trying to keep their massive multiplayer online game ahead of the competition is all sorts of weird and funny. It has the most bizarre characters you’ll meet in a sitcom. Also, you’ll find a familiar face in Danny Puri, who plays a very different but fun role in this series.

Where to watch: Apple T.V.

Schitt’s Creek

Imagine a modern-day version of Arrested Development, and that’s basically the plot of this show. The Rose family move to a small town they own after losing all their wealth and start their lives fresh while getting accustomed to living in a motel.

The Office

It wouldn’t make sense to make a list of comedy shows and not include the g.o.a.t of comedy. This mockumentary about the lives of the employees of Dunder Mifflin, a paper company, turns mundane life into comedy. This series was also first aired in the 2000s and has that epic and borderline-offensive humor that would not fly in today’s comedy genre.

Where to watch: Netflix.

Barry

The premise of this show is so strange and unique that I dived into it without even watching the trailer, and boy was I glad I did! The show follows Barry, a serious hitman. He discovers the joy of acting while pursuing a target and falls so in love with it he decides to leave his old life behind. Unfortunately, his exit from the life of crime is not as smooth and seamless as he thought it would be. This is a character-driven series that will have you falling off your chair laughing!

Where to watch: Hulu.
