      Previous Emily Nussbaum New Yorker When it is firing on all cylinders, it feels like the perfect blend of the surprising and the familiar: something old, something new, something borrowed, and definitely something blue. Jan 12, 2019 Full Review Josh Gondelman New York Magazine/Vulture This season seems content to let the characters' lives drive the action... Fewer goofy capers and mysteries. More community college problems. 3/5 Jan 12, 2019 Full Review Willa Paskin Slate Harmon is vindicated and triumphant, but also still pretty torn up about everything. Community is no longer a zombie, but the new episodes feel plenty funereal. Jan 12, 2019 Full Review Randy Dankievitch Processed Media Where Community does a terrific job is finding meaning in this re-purposing of characters and situations. Feb 12, 2020 Full Review Joseph McCabe Nerdist Even the most ardent Greendale supporter could be forgiven for doubting we'd see something as epic as season 1 and 2's paintball episodes again. The fifth season, however, gave us episodes of that caliber on more than one occasion. Jan 14, 2019 Full Review Dave Trumbore Collider For those of you, like myself, who were fans of Community from the outset, season five is off to a promising start.

      Previous Jasper S Just wrapped up the latest season, and it's a wild ride! 🌟 Now, switching gears - any fellow Rottentomatoes fans using Alight Motion for video editing? Share your thoughts on both the season and your editing experiences below. Let's keep the cinematic vibes alive! 🎬 #AlightMotion #CinematicEditing #TVSeasonTalks Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/24 Full Review Max W Starting from Season 5, some of the regular characters gradually depart, and to maintain a balance in character interactions and narrative density, new characters are introduced accordingly. While audiences might not be entirely welcoming of this change, what Community excels at is ensuring that each character has their own path, and they may one day return to the Greendale family. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/15/23 Full Review Pablo Y La vuelta de Dan Harmon se hace notar con el retorno a la esencia humorística del elemento sorpresa resultado de mezclar el absurdo caótico con la comedia inteligente. No obstante, esta temporada da síntomas evidentes de agotamiento, en gran parte debido a la ausencia de Chevy Chase y Donald Glover -cuya marcha de este último hace que el personaje de Abed pierda fuelle-. A ello hay que sumarle el hecho de la reducción drástica del número de episodios (igual que a la primera le sobran, a esta le faltan), aunque si bien es cierto que el ratio de buenos episodios se resiente en esta penúltima temporada. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/02/23 Full Review Benjamin S Community returns to it's absolute amazingness after the bad season 4. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/23/23 Full Review Regal R 80/100 - good addition to the cast but doesnt have the same oomph the first 3 seasons had. still a good show, entertaining to watch Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/23 Full Review Ruhaan A some were ok but the show was gone at this point Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/23/22 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
