is without a doubt one of the best shows in the history of television. Bold humor, interesting characters, pinstripes for added flair and a spoiler to decrease wind resistance, very few shows can compare to the worst
Community episode. Season 2 is ending, and Season 3 has been confirmed by Dan Harmon, the show's creator. The show revolves around a study group at a local Community College in Greendale, Colorado. It airs Thursday nights on NBC at 8pm eastern/west, 7pm central. This show isn't just head of the class,
it's Streets ahead television
When a new Community isn't on TV, we all feel this way:
and watching the show is like being hit in the face with happiness:
WARNING: If you do not like the Barenaked Ladies, go watch Two and a Half Men instead. And racism does not compute:
Let's see the relationships at large in this grand experiment of a show:
Jeff Winger and himself
Jeff is a former lawyer who needs get his bachelor's degree in order to get back to practicing law. To do so, he went to Greendale, and has since found a family. An agnostic hipster with a dumb gay dad who left him as a child, his love for attention is surpassed only by handcrafted Italian faucets and Scandinavian facial scrubs. He also tried out for and failed to get on Real World Seattle.
Shirley Bennett (aka Shirley the Cloying) and Pierce Hawthorne (aka Pierce the Insensitive aka Pierce the Dickish aka Grandpa the Flatulent)
Shirley is going to college to get a business degree to sell brownies online. A mother of two with a third child on the way, she has recently reconciled with her estranged husband Theo Huxtable and must also check the door before she goes through it. Pierce is the best character on the show whose family created the Hawthorne Wipes Moist Towelette company, and having run the business for so long, has decided to reinvent himself at Greendale. Deeply, deeply
flawed and harboring lingering resentment to his Colonel Sanders father, he knows Jeff's secret, he knows about the chair. He is also a recovering pill popper who coined the phrase Streets Ahead, coined and minted, zip zop zooey.
Britta Perry and Annie Edison
The true odd couple. One's a late 20's sexy hippy hipster with poor money skills desperate to be seen as a rebel to a society that isn't arguing with her and quick to pass judgment on others who seem to conform to "The Man." The other is a cute conservative uptight overachiever who lives above a sex store and wants to be seen as a more mature woman. One is the heart of the group, the other is the conscience, yet both crave Winger's wanger. They pass the time having tickle fights and making out, exploring their sexuality.
Troy "Buttsoup" Barnes and Abed Nadir
True soulmates. A former highschool jock and a twenty something pop culture film fanatic, there is a strong chance that if one dies the other will be buried with the other, claiming suicide in order to get Firefly back on the air. Abed can see things via stopmotion animation, Troy would probably like the stopmotion puppets to do something to his butt.
Ben Chang, "El Tigre Chino"
Chang is a severely disturbed individual, who has even more mental problems than Pierce and Abed combined. Add to the point that he faked a Spanish Degree and taught at Greendale for nearly 4 years before being caught, he is more than likely the father to Shirley's third child.
