Community - Basic Email Security

Taking questionable action in the name of an equally questionable cause the Save Greendale Committee refuses to bow to pressure to remove a controversial comic from performing at the school under the threat that their email will be released to the entire student body if they fail to comply. The thin plot allows for the show’s remaining core group to learn just how their friends truly see them as the inevitable flare up explodes.

“I guess I’ll see you in class tomorrow guy who tried to murder me.”

Community - Laws of Robotics and Party Rights

When a local prison offers $300,000 to allow convicts to attend classes via telerobots Jeff (Joel McHale) champions the idea at least until one of his new students attempts to use his iPad on a stick robot to murder the teacher while charming the rest of the class and even Dean Pelton (Jim Rash). “Laws of Robotics and Party Rights” follows the basic formula of several classic Community episodes with Jeff learning a lesson and admitting an appreciation for his friends and the school that leads to him getting his way (after a ridiculous fight between the telerobots with the rest of the school cheering on). The telerobots also allow for a humorous final scene involving Abed (Danny Pudi) taking control of them for his own purposes.

Community - Queer Studies and Advanced Waxing

The Sixth Season of Community hits the trifecta with an episode featuring three storylines you could only expect to find at Greendale Community College. After the school board’s plan of cancelling the gay pride parade backfires, Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) is offered a seat on the board as long as he promotes his homosexuality. Remarking that categorization only characterizes a fraction of his personality, Belton accepts the position leading to fun mock-up news and magazine articles complete with humorous soundtrack about the school’s Gay Dean which is as inappropriate as it is entertaining.

“Did we give a degree to a dog?”

Community - Basic Crisis Room Decorum

The latest crisis hits Greendale Community College when Annie (Alison Brie) calls an emergency 3am meeting of the Save Greendale Committee after learning that City College has created an attack against their school. The ad attacks Greendale for allowing a dog to get a four-year degree at the college, a proposition several members of the group believe may actually be possible and no one is able to immediately dismiss.

Community - Lawnmower Maintenance and Postnatal Care

The second episode of the show’s Sixth Season continues to work Frankie (Paget Brewster) into the mix as she attempts to help Jeff (Joel McHale) force Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) to give up on ridiculous old school virtual reality technology Greendale can’t afford and steps in as the calming influence to help Britta (Gillian Jacobs) with her latest wig out caused when she learns her friends have been accepting help from the parents (Martin Mull, Lesley Ann Warren) she refuses to have anything to do with.

Community - Ladders

The first episode of the show’s Sixth Season introduces Paget Brewster as Francesca “Frankie” Dart, a consultant brought in to join the Save Greendale Committee following the latest Greendale fiasco when the cafeteria roof collapses under the weight of one too many Frisbees. Starting out its first online season without half the original cast leaves the show feeling early on like a shadow of its former self but a ludicruous underground speakeasy later and its clear that the show is in good hands with Dan Harmon back behind the helm.

Community - Basic Sandwich

Concluding the show’s Fifth Season, “Basic Sandwich” finds the Save Greendale Committee searching the campus for the hidden computer lab of the college’s founder (Chris Elliott) who disappeared in the 1970s (along with an entire wing of the school) while doing research on computer intelligence capable of emotion. Realizing that the circuitry of this creation was made almost entirely out of gold, the group searches frantically for treasure which they could use to stop Subway from buying the campus.

Community - Basic Story

The first-half of Community‘s season finale offers the former Study Group, now the Save Greendale Committee, a problem unlike any they have faced before. After an insurance inspector takes a look over the campus and discovers all the work that’s been done in recent months has actually turned Greendale Community College from a liability nightmare into a potentially profitable real estate, the land is quickly sold out from under the college to Subway.

“G.I. JOE is the codename for America’s daring awesomely trained awesome mission force. Its purpose: To fight Cobra, because they’re terrorists!”

Community - G.I. JEFF

That was awesome! Unapologetically pulling the nostalgic strings of everyone who grew up watching G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero, and guaranteeing I will buy this season on DVD, the only question anyone needs to ask about G.I. Jeff is: Is it a great episode of Community or the greatest episode of Community?
