It started in 2009, first airing on NBC; under the care of writer Dan Harmon (most of the time), Community was able to cultivate a particularly loyal fanbase, all of whom recognise the show as something special.
There is something much more going on beneath the surface with this show. A lot of people would point to the absurdist humour of Community to explain why they love it – and don’t get me wrong, that’s part of why I love it too. Episodes like Contemporary American Poultry or Modern Warfare are genuinely quite fantastic – but I fell in love with Community far earlier than that.
Another recent Yahoo article, this time about the moment I feel in love with Community. It’s probably not the moment you’d expect!
