Easter weekend guilty pleasure. Spent most of it watching the American T.V. series 'Community' written by Dan Harmon. We have had a free month of Stan T.V. and we are making the most of it. Our kids think all their Christmas' have come at once. This show is absolute gold. I went to TAFE which is probably the equivalent to community college in America. I have laughed and laughed. I swear some of the people with the greatest insight to humanity goes through TAFE...to produce something like this and nail the personalities and the world around us... TAFE in Australia has had the fees hiked right up over the last year so for all of us 'who might not fit in elsewhere' this sucks. The TAFE I went to at Red Hill has been half taken over (to be utilised by the Bronco's league club of all things. Here is a newspaper link of the take over with a quote from Tony Abbott "What we are doing is trying to help people, who are helping themselves" ). Re-open this form of education for minority groups that they might possibly afford and it will probably help save the government in a lot of other areas in the long run. We did not realise how good we had it at Red Hill until it was gone. This show sums up the benefits. I may be the last person on the planet to have watched this series, but I don't think too much has been lost on me. I am up to season three.
