Although "Advanced Introduction to Finality" was not the apocalyptic nightmare that Twitter might have led you to believe, it was still truly terrible.
"Heroic Origins" was another example of the show's current upswing, and while it leaned hard on a conceit that we've seen recently, there was enough variation to make the story enjoyable.
Some of these shows will be back, some of them won't. We take our guesses.
I struggle to form an opinion any time a show attempts to pull a powerful emotional moment out of a story that's failed to work, or that hasn't been given enough attention before said powerful moment.
"Intro to Knots" wasn't a complete mess by any means, but it squandered more potential than I would have liked.
In the end, a concept that seemed really problematic and worrisome ended up working quite well on every level.
It was nice to see Pierce stand up for Britta, but the highlight of this episode (which was fine, but nothing special) was a great, almost moving performance from Danny Pudi.
This episode gave the Dean his first real solid storyline of the season, and it was enjoyable to see the character at the center of an episode that allowed Jim Rash to play the Dean's combination of enthusiasm for Greendale…
When does Whitney come to an end? And what about the shows you actually like?
Community has reached middle-age, and the show is now more willing to open to that box on the shelf that’s marked “Things That Work.” But this episode still had its moments.
This episode wasn't perfect, but it got the important stuff right.
This week's episode returned to the show's roots as a college comedy, but did little to boost the disastrous fourth season.
Like Britta, I straight-up don't care about Inspector Spacetime, so this episode wasn't my favorite. But at least the end of it packed the kind of moderate emotional wallop that makes for a rock-solid Community story.
Plus: Zero Hour premieres to almost zero ratings, Kyle Chandler is headed to Showtime, and Felicity Huffman is an assassin!
"Paranormal Parentage" didn't light the world on fire, but it was a stabilizing, promising episode for this new season of Community.
Look, I didn't want to start our discussion of Community's return talking about Dan Harmon either, but what we have here is an unavoidable Dan Harmon-sized elephant that, uhhh, isn't in the room anymore.
Plus: TLC renewed Toddlers and Tiaras, Smash returned but no one watched it, and Chevy Chase tried to fistfight Joel McHale.
