Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 3_47_19 PMCommunity Season Six: “Emotional Consequences of Broadcast Television”

Lets talk about Community’s propensity for series finales. While it’s true that the continually reincarnated Futurama might actually have more finales if you factor in episodes designed to serve as finales in the event of… [more]

6x12_Main_photoCommunity Season Six: “Wedding Videography”

This season of Community has been utilizing very minor characters a lot more than ever before. The show has always had a cast of glorified extras that would pop into scenes when a random student… [more]

Todd!Community Season Six: “Modern Espionage”

Last season Community decided to return to one of its better concept episodes – Dungeons and Dragons. The results were mixed, feeling like a slightly fruitless attempt at recapturing the glory days. When I heard… [more]

community-season-6-ken-jeong-changCommunity Season Six: “Basic RV Repair and Palmistry”

Well what do you know! It may have taken ten episodes but “Basic RV Repair and Palmistry” might just be the best episode of Community in a long time. Or at least in ten episodes.… [more]

Toast_of_London_s_Matt_Berry_to_play__professor_of_grifting__in_CommunityCommunity Season Six: Grifting 101

So episode nine of Community is a bit…muddled. In my humble opinion. When the film started I was pretty instantly thrilled by an animated old west inspired opening shot. It immediately proved to be set… [more]

9813fd18d79f1fc3ab2b75df9a7eba81f400711cCommunity Season Six: “Intro to Recycled Cinema”

The sixth season of Community seems to be shying away from some of the high concept event episodes of seasons past. The latest episode, “Intro to Recycled Cinema” probably comes closest. The episode blends scenes… [more]

community-1024Community Season Six: “Advanced Safety Features”

I want to say something right away about the latest episode of Community. Yahoo did not work as advertised for the first time. Maybe it wasn’t their fault, maybe it was Chrome, maybe it was… [more]

NUP_158120_0612.JPGCommunity Season Six: “Basic Email Security”

Community episode 6, “Basic Email Security,” self-identifies as the third entry in a trilogy consisting of “Cooperative Calligraphy” and “Cooperative Polygraphy.” Apparently they couldn’t match the “cooperative” moniker to this episode, which is pretty funny.… [more]

dan_harmonCommunity Season Six: “Queer Studies and Advanced Waxing”

So by this point in a season Community has normally had at least one great episode. Not this season though. It hasn’t had a bad episode either, just average episodes. Episode four, “Queer Studies and… [more]

Screen-Shot-2014-08-15-at-9.57.40-AM-620x360Community Season Six: “Basic Crisis Room Decorum”

The third episode of the Yahoo hosted sixth season of Dan Harmon’s quirky cult show Community continues a trend seemingly put forward by the first two. “Basic Crisis Room Decorum” sees the show at both… [more]

CommunityCommunity Season Six: “Ladders” and “Lawnmower Maintenance and Post-Natal Care”

Community was a little bit of a nerve-wracking affair this season. The show was running the risk of this particular reincarnation being more like the Leech Child than the behemoth of brilliance it was before.… [more]

Onlygod2014-11-07-23h14m24s73Where True Detective Meets Community: Character Based Meta Examinations

True Detective was an amazing show. Brilliantly thematically driven, fabulously shot, and incredibly acted. It was filled with top-of-the-line craft across the board. There’s so much to learn from that show, but one of the… [more]

CommunityAdvanced Creative Storytelling and the Art of Metanarrative: Community’s Journey to #sixseasonsandamovie

As the spring television season began its descent into summer, Community fans shared a collective thought:  this truly is the darkest timeline.  For five seasons, the battlecry of #sixseasonsandamovie had proven to work as Community… [more]

hannibalCancellations and Renewals: What’s Happening to my Favourite Shows Next Year

I’ve mainly talked about two TV shows on this site, and that’s not by accident. I reviewed the whole fifth season of Community and wrote about why you should watch Hannibal. Some of you went… [more]

Community - Season 5Review of Community Season 5, Episodes 12 and 13

“What does this look like, an hour long episode of The Office?” The Dean says that, somewhere near the beginning of Basic Sandwich, the second half of Community’s two-parter season finale. The reason this episode’s… [more]

imageReview of Community Season 5, Episode 11

This season of Community has, admittedly, been a little up and down. The show has been good, and is still better than the majority of network TV out there, but there have been a few… [more]

Community -- 5X10_main_photoReview of Community Season 5, Episode 10

Season Two’s Advanced Dungeons and Dragons was one of the best Community episodes ever. It was a perfect melding of form and theme. The episode’s gimmick was telling the entire story through a Dungeons and… [more]

community vcr-maintenance-and-educational-publishingReview of Community Season 5, Episode 9

VCR Maintenance and Educational Publishing might be my favourite episode yet of Community’s fifth season. It’s not necessarily the best one – the b-plot was a bit weak – but it made me laugh in… [more]

Community 57b316aa380b45ecc5b5b4cfcbe5842fReview of Community Season 5, Episode 8

Community’s fans have always extolled the virtues of the show’s concept episodes. School-wide paintball games, science projects, Chang, and more have all served as excuses for pitch-perfect genre parodies that remained firmly grounded in character-based… [more]

community bondage-and-beta-male-sexualityReview of Community Season 5, Episode 7

Community‘s seventh episode of the season, Bondage and Beta Male Sexuality, wisely continues to strip back the high-concept tom-foolery and focus on character development. This season’s changes were obviously deserving of a serious story beat… [more]

community nathan fillionReview of Community Season 5, Episode 6

Community is back. Or at least it feels that way. The first episodes of this season may have felt like a return, at least in contrast to season four, but this is the first episode… [more]

community_title#SixSeasonsAndAMovie: Why Community, and the Meta-Geeks Who Love It, are Having a Moment

With an epic narrative to rival the trials of Odysseus and his men, any fan of Dan Harmon’s “Community” can recount its constant struggle to remain on the air. In fact, the current hashtag on… [more]

donald gloverReview of Community Season 5, Episode 5

I was really looking forward to this episode of Community. It’s quite possibly the last episode of the show to feature Troy (played by Donald Glover). It’s also a new high-concept episode, something the show… [more]

Chevy ChaseReview of Community Season 5, Episode 4

Troy and Abed are in mourning. Pierce Hawthorne has died. It’s no secret that the actor that played him, Chevy Chase, didn’t particularly enjoy working on the show. He didn’t find it funny, and he… [more]

Community Mad Men SpoofReview of Community Season 5, Episode 3

The first parody of Community‘s fifth season has landed. “Basic Intergluteal Numismatics”, the season’s third episode, feels a little like a redux of “Basic Lupine Urology”, Community’s pitch perfect Law and Order spoof. Both see… [more]
