Storyline

Dean Pelton decides that Greendale Community College must have its own flight simulator and cannot be bested by the competition, "City College," which is planning its own flight simulator. He enlists the study group to clean and refurbish the Greendale Community College simulator. As Jeff, Pierce, Britta, Annie, Shirley and Troy wash the tattered simulator down, they end up accidentally launching it - sending everyone on an unexpected journey into "outer space." Abed is left behind to try and navigate a safe "return" for everyone. Written by NBC Publicity

Community at it's best!
2 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Basic Rocket Science, the fourth episode of Season 2, proves why Community IS the best comedy on television right now.

Not only is it cinematic in it's approach and look, but it's ambition is sky high. This episode especially was quite magnificent, and probably amazing the show's best. I still have the rest of season two to watch and the last few episodes of Season One, but already I feel like this is at the top, even higher than what I considered an unstoppable comedy- Modern Family. I cannot wait for this season to come out on DVD, and hopefully the rest of this season is this imaginative and this funny and entertaining.
