Sitcom a History in 24 Episodes from I Love Lucy to Community

This is a pretty good book by writer Saul Austerlitz.  Each chapter is about an episode of a sitcom and also that sitcom itself.  I have not finished the book yet but I am enjoying it. I will probably finish it soon.

I liked the chapter on Community.  It was one of the first chapters I read. The chapter covers the episode Modern Warfare.

I liked the chapter on Seinfield more than I expected to like it.  Which is interesting because I cannot remember watching an episode of Seinfeld in the last two years.

How I Met Your Mother did not get a chapter, which seems odd,  It was a bigger hit than Community. Also it updates Friends to an extent.
