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.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.
