An Epic Sendoff
23 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This episode has everything that made me love Community in the first place, the perfect formula silly and funny premise, yet still has heartfelt moments. Geothermal Escapism is like A Fistfull of Paintballs in the sense that it has the essence of en epic adventure.

Even though, I still can't believe that Troy is leaving his last words with his friends, nearly brought tears to my eyes, especially when he said goodbye to Abed.

I am so glad that Dan Harmon is back for Season 5, without him the send off would be a hit and miss. So far this season, I have not been disappointed, yet this is the best episode of Season 5 so far.
