Unoriginal Episode
22 February 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Bobby and Tracy want to raise a family with a child but they need a better place to live. When they find a house in an apparently safe and perfect community, the administrator Candace helps them to get the necessary loan and they move to the location. Soon Tracy befriends Arlene but Bobby is uncomfortable with the interference of the neighbors in his life with Tracy. He also finds strange the behavior of people in the community and asks his friend and lawyer Scott to investigate the destiny of the formers dwellers and he finds the truth about the community.

"Community" is an unoriginal episode of "Fear Itself" with the well known story of a family that moves to a perfect place that is not so perfect. This is the type of totally predictable episode where the viewer knows what will happen. My vote is five.
