DittyDotDot September 10, 2014 Share September 10, 2014 (edited) It was brought up in the DVD thread that we might need a thread to discuss this show compared to other shows. ::cough:: The X-Files ::cough:: Here's what kicked it off. But as I said above, I agree, the show STORY is what they put on air. That's the canon. But I do think Carver & company are playing around with using an engagement style that is different than other shows. I don't know of any show that metas as much as this show metas in the history of meta. Community does quite a bit of meta in their show too. In-fact, I was commenting to somebody the other day that Community, in many ways, is the comedy companion to old-school Supernatual (without the B-grade horror aspects, of course). They also tend to take a genre and/or concept and frame an episode around it. The major difference (other than being comedy instead of horror) is that Community isn't particularly serialized storytelling so the reset at the end of each episode isn't an issue.
