Welcome to the second season of this ingenious and clever yet warm-hearted sitcom about sitcoms. On the surface, Community follows the misadventures of a study group at a mediocre community college, but it's really a loopy satire of TV comedy, taking every opportunity to deconstruct the absurd rules and accepted structures that shape almost every sitcom ever made--while, without missing a beat, making brilliant use of those rules and structures to create wonderfully likable characters and tell delightfully funny stories. It's hard to imagine how something this sneaky and multilayered got through the soul-sucking committees of network television. In season two, the members of the adorable misfit study group struggle to fight off their former Spanish teacher, Señor Chang (Ken Jeong), who desperately wants to be part of the group even though they're now studying anthropology. But a greater danger lies within: Pierce (Chevy Chase), the socially obtuse moist-towelette magnate whose mix of paranoia and jealousy turns him against his friends, transforming him into the outright villain of the season. Meanwhile, the gang grapple with the sexual politics of charity, outer-space flight simulation, religious-epic filmmaking, mean girls, booze, Dungeons and Dragons, zombies, Balkan genocide, stop-motion Christmas specials, and a sequel to the first season's paintball episode that is almost as brilliant as the original. The entire cast (Chase, Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Danny Pudi, and Yvette Nicole Brown) is in top form, the guest appearances (ranging from Betty White to Josh Holloway from Lost) are smartly used, and the abundant DVD extras are all excellent. Community: The Complete Second Season is a pleasure from start to finish. --Bret Fetzer

Community is a decidedly niche comedy about a disbarred lawyer returning to community college to get a real degree but instead gains quirky friends and gets into various hijinks. It currently runs on NBC's Thursday line-up.
The second season features more challenging and hilarious story arcs and different partnerships between the main characters. The comedy is not forced in anyway and the situations almost seem logical in this quirky reality. The overall character arcs are tighter, everyone has their time to shine their distinctive personalities. Joel McHale leads the returning cast of characters. Guest stars include Betty White, Rob Corddry, a really skinny Drew Carey...
Danny Pudi (Abed Nadir) plays one of the most unique and funniest characters on television. Paired with Troy Barnes (Derrick Comedy's Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino), these two, these two... there's no words. Do a best-of search on youtube for Troy and Abed and you will get the idea. Favorites are "Troy Barnes crying is hilarious", "Troy Barnes Joke" (crab dip), "Troy and Abed in the Morning", "Abed Don Draper Mad Men"
High points - There is a claymation christmas episode which is pretty touching and hilarious in equal amounts. This year's paintball finale is pretty fun also.
The best thing about main characters on this show is that they are multi-layered and although they can be funny, at times they provide depth and social commentary (although this is decidedly light and humourous). All of them have their faults, but they have their redeemable qualities too, some more than others.Read more ›
The show itself is brilliant and hilarious.
Highly recommend. Don't just download it, the set and the show is worth the purchase.
