Top 10 Episodes of Community
It might not have lasted for as long as its television comedy brethren like “The Office” or “How I Met Your Mother,” but “Community” built up a rather admirable cult following during its 5 season run. A devout fan base who’s loyalty and passion is equal to, possibly even greater than the more illustrious, long-running shows. That being said, having such a dense, furious following leaves a significant amount of room for disapprovers to flourish. I’m in the former, however, a majority of the people I surround myself with tend to dislike the show…intensely. There’s really no middle-ground here, one either loves or hates “The Greendale 7” and their weekly antics. Whether that may be rescuing their dean from the clutches of a deranged, former Spanish teacher, a bottle episode, or referencing their all-time favourite films, “Community” is gone too soon, even if it is only one season.
Much like the show itself, you’ll either enjoy this top 10, or it’ll completely baffle and/or infuriate you. Regardless, without further delay, let’s get into it!
