Community: Basic Story: Episode 12, Season 5 - TV Review

Published by

community basic story abed annie subway
Community’s fifth season was an improbable gift - one largely spent returning to the wells of what worked earlier in the series. So it makes sense that as we near its uncertain future, “Basic Story,” revisits the notion that Greendale is in peril of being closed down – this time from its own success … and Subway. The Players: Director: Jay...

Community: G.I. Jeff: Episode 11, Season 5 - TV Review

Community rarely deploys animation, but it annihilates emotion and tackles dark psychological issues with extreme parody. So how does the appropriately titled “G.I. Jeff” fare? Two words Joes: Mission accomplished. The Players: Director: Rob Schrab Writer: Dino Stamatopoulos Cast: Joel McHale, Gillian...

'Community' Just Might Get to Six Seasons and a Movie (Yes Really)

Community has always been on the bubble. The show does well in its demographic, but has never had high ratings. But after five seasons, the show will have amassed 98 episodes -- two shy of the most syndication-friendly number -- while much of NBC's schedule hasn't worked out so hot. So now it seems like it will get to six seasons. The new twist is that there could...

Greendale acquires the power to quantify and judge human interaction in “App Development And Condiments,” which quickly spirals out of control. Community knows how to build great concept episodes, and this one’s no exception. For goodness sakes, there are outlands you can be banished to. The Players Director: Rob...

Annie’s path to corruption (and a new bulletin board) begins with Nathan Fillion in “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking.” But lest Community seem too svelte, Chang’s midterm dance theme goes over like a bear at a child's birthday party. Because his theme's actually ‘wild bear at a child’s birthday party.’ The Players Director:...

Goodbye, Pierce Hawthorne, we knew ye far too well. “Cooperative Polygraphy” is Pierce at his finest, funniest and most disruptive. Only Community can execute that from beyond the grave.

Community: Basic Intergluteal Numismatics: Season 5 Episode 3 - TV Review

It’s unclear how the Ass-Crack Bandit of  “Basic Intergluteal Numismatics” is actually a bandit. He’s putting stuff into butts, not trying to steal from them. Even if that premise isn’t silly enough for you, Community jumps into the deep end of genre and reminds us why it's one of the most creative celebrations of pop culture. The...

It's almost here. It's one of those things that seemed impossible since Season one, but we're now actually about to start the fifth season of Community. And it looks like NBC is promoting it, trying to get people excited about what could be the final thirteen episodes of the series. Or perhaps it will get to a sixth season and a movie (of the week). Regardless, this...

Community – Jeff, Dean and Human Being
Community's season finale tried to recreate a time gone by. With Jeff on the verge of graduating, the writers decided to bring back the darkest timeline, but their hearts just weren't in it. Don't get us wrong, "Advanced Introduction To Finality" had its moments, but compared to previous finales, it doesn't make the cut.

Community – Troy and Annie
Last night's Community was devoted to a disease called Changnesia, which is exactly what it sounds like. As you may have gathered from previous episodes, Chang's returned to Greendale as an amnesiac. In "Advanced Documentary Filmmaking," Abed puts on his filmmaker hat and documents the different reactions the study group has to this sketchy illness.

Community: Jeff and Britta
Thanksgiving comes with a lot of strings attached. Sure there's tons of delicious food, but you have to put up crazy family members, innapropriate jokes and awkward reunions. That was the case on last night's Community. "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations" focused on the difficult task of drunk uncles and estranged fathers.

Community: Conventions of Space and Time: Episode 3 Season 4 – TV Review

Published by

Community – Troy and Abed
Once again, Community took place outside of Greendale. There was no Dean Pelton, and no Leonard. Instead, we got some guest appearances by Matt Lucas and Tricia Helfer, who played fans of Inspector Spacetime. In "Conventions of Space and Time," Lucas and Helfer meet members of the study group during a less-than-great sci-fi event.
