You all know that I love the television show Community.
I’ll never get over how talented the entire cast truly is. Jim Rash (Oscar winner!) is sublime as Dean Pelton. The reference humor is great. And there is no laugh track, which I think is genius.
If you’re not already watching Community and want to give it a try, I highly recommend starting from the very beginning. It’s not really a show you can just jump into.
So, Greendale Human Beings, what is your favorite episode, moment, or line from Community?
