It’s here! October 19th is here! And you know what that means, fellow Greendale peers, Community is back! Whether it will be better than ever is yet to be determined. This show really is the “little engine that could” of network television. It has faced management changes, behind the scenes drama, and scheduling snafus, but still it prevails, raising that Greendale anus flag high on Thursday nights once more.
I think it is safe to say that Community is the weirdest little gem on television. What other shows have episodes in 8 bit and stop motion? Or alternative timelines and dreamatoriums (besides Fringe)? But all of that weirdness, self-referential humor, and Joel McHale’s face are what make me love this show so much.
Although, Troy and Abed are perhaps my MOST favorite thing of this show and definitely my favorite friendship on TV. Individually, their characters are hilarious and deliver my favorite lines, but they deliver pure gold. Having seen Danny Pudi and Donald Glover together at Comic Con, I think that this is aided by the fact that are actually friends who are great at riffing off each other.
To elaborate my point, I have included one of my favorite scenes from the show below, but before you click that, are you excited for the return of Community? Worried about the lack of Dan Harmon? Let us know in the comments!
