      Previous Kirthana Ramisetti Bitch Media The kind of show that luckily exists during an era of DVRs and Hulu so we can savor every funny aside and in-joke. Jan 9, 2021 Full Review Emily Nussbaum New Yorker I want Harmon to get to keep making his show, but I'll be grateful whether he does or not. Because if I can get three seasons on DVD of a show that never spoiled, or went sour-panicky, or phony-warm, I'll be entirely satisfied. Jan 11, 2019 Full Review Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly This truly is a cult-audience show on a broadcast network, one that self-selects its audience with great rigor and imagination. Jan 11, 2019 Full Review Alex Diedrick Uproxx Between paintball wars, zombie outbreaks, and the increasingly ridiculous presence of Senor Chang (Ken Jeong), Community is never, ever boring. Quit living in the darkest timeline and get to watching. Nov 11, 2021 Full Review Jeremy Jahns You have one of the most solid cast that just works... This is the funniest comedy on television. Jan 12, 2019 Full Review Robert Canning IGN Movies Season 3 was full of great stories, enjoyable character growth and some incredibly strong, memorable episodes. 9/10 Jan 12, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews Next
