In “Basic Sandwich,” Community doesn't devolve into learning how to toast black forest ham subs as part of Subway University’s (Eat Fresh!) curricula. So ‘sandwich’ is probably a metaphor for the study group’s feelings. The Players: Director: Rob Schrab Writer: Ryan Ridley Cast: Joel McHale,...

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 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...

Troy Barnes floor-strides into the sunset, in one of Community’s most heartfelt concept episodes. “Geothermal Escapism” may be a game of “The Floor Is Lava” taken to its hilarious, dystopian apex, but it’s also a fitting farewell to one of the show’s strongest characters.
