Community Season Finale Recap: 5 Seasons and a Treasure Hunt

Community’s fifth season finale was all the things fans of the show love it for.

  • S.05
  • Ep.10
  • 'Advanced Advanced Dungeons and Dragons'

It’s hard not to have a nagging voice in your head saying “fan service” in the style of one of Abed’s turncoat hobgoblins. 

  • S.05
  • Ep.09
  • 'VCR Maintenance and Educational Publishing'

This week's episode is a textbook example of how witty and laugh-out-loud funny this show can be. 

  • S.04
  • Ep.09
  • 'Intro to Felt Surrogacy'

Who knew it would take a bunch of puppets to help Community deliver its strongest episode of the season? 

  • S.04
  • Ep.08
  • 'Herstory of Dance'

This week's episode succeeds by pummeling us with the familiar and then presenting us with pleasant and unexpected twists. 

  • S.04
  • Ep.05
  • 'Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations'

Last night's episode seems to have been made for the Pierce Hawthornes of the world, not the Abeds. 

  • S.03
  • Ep.16
  • 'Virtual Systems Analysis'

When Dan Harmon and the cast of Community spoke at a PaleyFest event in March, right before the show returned from its hiatus, they spoke about their anxieties for “Virtual Systems Analysis.” They didn’t know what the episode was until [...] 

  • S.03
  • Ep.15
  • 'Origins of Vampire Mythology'

How you feel about last night’s episode, “Origins of Vampire Mythology,” likely depends on how much you agree with Chevy Chase. As you’ve probably heard by now, Mr. Chase: not a big fan of Community. His biggest cranky coot complaint, outside [...] 

  • S.02
  • Ep.22
  • 'Applied Anthropology and Culinary Arts'

Betty Grable, Backseat Birthers, and 'Indecent Proposal' references.  

  • S.02
  • Ep.
  • 'Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking'

Like Troy saying "COOL!" when he meant "cool," Dan Harmon did the opposite of what anyone could have reasonably expected last night. 

  • S.02
  • Ep.15
  • 'Early 21st Century Romanticism'

What made “Early 21st Century Romanticism” a great, gimmick-free episode of Community? Jokes. 

  • S.02
  • Ep.09
  • 'Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design'

It had a campuswide blanket fort and yet it had a Latvian Independence Day parade. It was, in a word, fantastic. 

  • S.02
  • Ep.05
  • 'Messianic Myths and Ancient Peoples'

In a pinch, Jeff will come through as your emergency contact. 

  • S.02
  • Ep.02
  • 'Accounting for Lawyers'

It’s been well-established that 'Community' works best when it’s able to balance the meta and the meaningful.  

  • S.01
  • Ep.18
  • 'Physical Education'

Rip off your tightie-whities, billiards fans, this was one of the strongest half-hours this season. 

  • S.01
  • Ep.16
  • 'Communication Studies'

In which the show frustratingly toys with the central Jeff-Britta relationship. 

  • S.01
  • Ep.11
  • 'Politics of Human Sexuality'

Some may call it filth. We call it progress! 

  • S.01
  • Ep.10
  • 'Environmental Science'

The funniest Green Week-inspired sitcom since 30 Rock had David Schwimmer in a bodysuit. 

Thursdays, 8 p.m.

‘It Took Me Years to Believe in My Talents Again": […]

It’s not easy to confront a powerful man who once belittled, sexually harassed, or assaulted you in the workplace – especially if the experience made you question your talents or affected your sense of self-worth and/or career path for years to [...]

‘Community’s Ghosts of Christmas

A Christian, Jew, pseudo-Scientologist, agnostic, atheist, Jehovah’s Witness, and a Muslim all enroll at a dysfunctional community college. How do they celebrate the holidays? No, this isn’t the setup to a particularly long-winded joke about [...]
