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!

  1. I really need to give this series (especially now that NBC cancelled it) a shot. Heard so many great things.

  2. Loved the “Pillows & Blankets” and the “Modern Warfare” episodes. So many great ones to choose from though. The “Remedial Chaos Theory” episode (S.3, E.4) would be on my top 10 list.

    • I was going to put “Remedial Chaos Theory” in, but it just didn’t make the cut! It’d probably be the first honourable mention, for me:). But yes, terrific show with tons of solid episodes, it will be missed😦.

  3. I completely agree with your number one choice. That episode is a masterpiece! I also like the Law and Order inspired one

  4. Oh i love the D&D episode so much! When Pierce says that he’s gunna make a spell to make Niell’s character fat, I laugh so bloody hard!

  5. Nice work. I’m still angry at NBC for canceling the show. Hopefully Community will find a second life somewhere.

    Remedial Chaos Theory is my favorite episode, so I’d include it on the list, though I like all the episodes you mentioned with the exception of Herstory in Dance. That was probably one of the better parts of season 4 but I didn’t enjoy it too much.

  6. Super funny and sad that it didn’t last. I didn’t see every single episode, but the ones I saw I loved.

  7. Gone too soon, indeed!😦

  8. Excellent post. And great series😀

    Gotta catch up on this show. A close friend of mine is always telling me it’s the best show I’m not watching. Thanks and good work!
