Did You Know?


In the Season 1 finale, "Pascal's Triangle Revisited". When the Dean is listing off the prom queen contestents, one of the names he says is "Danielle Harmon", this is a reference to Dan Harmon, the show's creator. See more »


Throughout the series, it is established that Shirley is a "Baptist" (general, but enough info); however, in various episodes she does the Catholic "Sign of the Cross" (signum crucis). If she were a baptist (any variation) this would not be a ritual of her faith. However, there isn't any prohibition about making the Sign, either, if she happened to feel like doing it. See more »

So much brilliance
26 August 2020 | by elgsdyrSee all my reviews

Community is really a mixed bag. The best parts of the show is up there with the best of the best, while other parts (or whole seasons) felt like a different show written by other (less talented) writers. Which is exactly what happened...

The beginning of the first season felt quite generic to me and it actually took me three attempts before I got engaged properly with viewing. About 2/3 into the season it seemed slowly find it's proper feet to stand on and I started getting hooked. The last 1/3 as well the whole season 2 and 3 is an impressive display of some of the most brilliant, intelligent, and creative humour I have ever seen on a show like this. It doesn't get better than this. Unfortunately, they then sacked Dan Harmon and season 4 ended up barely watchable for me. Only the characters and the promise of Harmon's return in s5 kept me going. S5 was much better and had occasional glimpses of the brilliance seen in s2 & s3 but on the whole didn't reach the same heights. Final season took another step downwards, sadly. It wasn't bad but too many of the main characters were gone and the premise of the show had changed too much from what worked so amazingly well in the early seasons.

My seasonal ratings: Season 1: 8 (starts at 6, ends at 10) Season 2: 10 Season 3: 10 Season 4: 5 Season 5: 7 Season 6: 6
