I watched much of the show's first season, and immediately decided that it was some kind of independant group that had come up with their own plots, and would stay away from the mainstream. However, they score huge credibility with great guest stars (Jeanine Garofalo, Paul Rudd I believe?), that play off of the absurdist comedy with some strange touch of realism. I can't recommend this show enough.
I couldn't wait for the DVD so I bought the show from iTunes so that I can watch it on my Video iPod.
People who hate this show are probably the same people who have made Larry the Cable Guy a ratings sensation on Comedy Central. Get 'er done! Gaaharf, gaaharf! It's a shame that there's no room for a smart show like Stella when Redneck Comedy Hour is on like five times a day.
Somebody call Marcus!
Michael Ian Black is now my favorite comedian of all time. Mike Showalter and David Wain are okay (or, actually, I cannot stand either of them), but Michael Ian Black really steals the show. Also, read Michael Ian Black's new book: You're Not Doing It Right!
The humor used in this show is unlike any I've ever seen before, and it is something you'll laugh at every time. I can't really describe what they do or how it's funny, but I used to look forward to this show more than any comedy on the air, even Chapelle (Though it's apples and oranges there). Stella manages to have a humor that is amazingly intelligent and witty while simultaneously being ludicrously stupid at the same time. The one liners, the strange events, the bizarre plotlines, the hot neighbors, it's comic gold.
The cast is superb (all veterans of MTV's "The State" and the force behind "Wet Hot American Summer" as other reviews have mentioned). If you like either of those shows or the folks in charge of Reno 911, you'll probably dig on some Stella. I'll cut this review short because this show is something that has to be seen to be understood.

Stella I believe is the ultimate beacon of comedy we ever will reach and its cancellation proved we just weren't ready for something so good and pure. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Alyssa A

Great comedy that may have been ahead of its time. Great for watching over and over.
This is in full screen which was kind of disappointing.
