Community - Season 2Ross Sayers
"I'm hoping we can move away from the soap-y relationship-y stuff and into bigger, fast-paced, self-contained escapades."
Abed Nadir, 'Anthropology 101', Season 2, Episode 1
So here I am, once again trying to convince you, good find-dvd.co.uk readers, to watch my beloved Community. The second season is finally being released on Region 2 and I think it would be a wise decision to pick up a copy.
Going into its second season, there was a lot of expectation on Community. Going from strength to strength in season one, culminating near the end of the season with one of the year's most talked about episodes, 'Modern Warfare', fans and critics alike were eager to see what the next step for the show would be. The result was more than anyone could have expected. Community Season 2 ranks as one of the most creative and ambitious season of television ever produced (at least in this humble reviewer's opinion).
After laying the groundwork of the characters and their relationships in season one, the writers were free to explore their creativity in expanding the unique Greendale world. From space missions to zombies, claymation to documentaries, surreal storylines to genuine emotional moments; season two of Community has a wealth of riches spread over 24 episodes. In 'Mixology Certification', Troy's 21st birthday leads to a gang taking a trip to a local bar to celebrate. This episode, though full of funny moments, is a more sombre affair, with the group finding themselves reflecting on their flaws and insecurities, which enables Troy to come to a significant realisation in his life. This episode is a brilliant depiction of growing up and Troy's storyline will resonate with young and old.
'Cooperative Calligraphy' sees a missing pen resulting the group turning on one another in the search for its whereabouts. For my money, this is the best Community episode ever. The script is flawless, the performances are terrific and the episode seems to convey and include everything that is great about the show within itself. Playing with a television convention (in this case, a bottle episode) in order to facilitate character growth? Check. Characters acting hilarious though maintaining believability? Check. The group going through an ordeal only to come out stronger at the end? Check-a-roony. In there's an episode to cement Community's place amongst the great TV shows of our time, it's this one.
Community's creator, Dan Harmon, was eager to push the boundaries of what a 22 minute network comedy could do and this season is littered with episodes that would not have been attempted by any other show. Case in point, 'Critical Film Studies', widely advertised as 'Community does Pulp Fiction!', turned out to be about something very different, and very un-promotable. Harmon was recently fired after completion of the show's third season and he claims that the decision was made early in the season. It therefore makes sense that it was his running of the show in this second season that prompted this decision. How many other showrunners would be willing to risk their job, and indeed lose it, in striving to retain their unique vision for the show? This is what makes Dan Harmon and his Community a shining light amongst a bland television landscape.
The bonus features are, once again, a great addition to the set. These include:
- Commentary on every episode. Some feature more laughs than others, some with more interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits. All worth a listen.
- Outtakes on all four discs. Combined, these run longer than the length of an episode and are just as funny. Highlight: Alison Brie rapping/Donald Glover impersonating Alison Brie rapping.
- Featurettes on The Paintball finale and the stop-motion Christmas episode. Both feature fascinating insight into production and the speed and complexity of the shooting process.
- Cast evaluations. Dan Harmon chatting straight-faced to the cast. Very awkwardly funny.
When I wrote my season one review, Community had just been placed on hiatus in the middle of its third season. Gladly, it came back and finished season three with a great run of episodes and was renewed for a 13 episode fourth season. While Dan Harmon being gone is a sucker punch, many previous writers are returning and the new showrunners have insisted they do not intend to, or want to, chang(e) anything about the show. It is my hope that season four will continue, and possibly finish, the Community I know and love. Hopefully when I write my season three DVD review I can finish with a paragraph about how the show recently finished its final season and was just as great as ever. I hope.
