Community: Season 3
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Community demands that viewers pay attention and think about American culture at large to catch all the comedy, which is not what most people expect from a sitcom. But this scope and ambition is exactly what makes Community so rare and rewarding--and so funny, for anyone willing to engage. The writing is consistently smart and inventive, the cast (McHale, Glover, Jeong, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Chevy Chase, and Jim Rash as the "pansexual imp" Dean Pelton) is charming and wholly committed to their roles, and the multiple directors maintain a consistency of tone even when adopting radically different visual styles. Community, like the great Arrested Development, pursues its distinctive humor to the fullest. Watch it from the beginning. --Bret Fetzer

The writers are taking the excellence of this show very seriously, and it has already paid off in spades for fans. This season, they've truly gone all in, and its easy to see why: This is re-writing all the rules about what a TV comedy can accomplish within 22 minutes. It's smart, hilarious, edgy (and even a little weird - but in a good way). I hope that by the end of this season it'll no longer be the most underrated comedy on TV today, and will begin to gain the popularity that it's deserved for the past three seasons.
It takes numerous views to get most of the jokes and after watching the first two seasons at least 4-5 times I still catch things I've missed. It's hilarious, the acting is superb, the attention to detail is astounding, and the writing is at another level. Preorder this and I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
Here's hoping for 6 seasons and a movie.
Season 3 is the dark season. Its how Harmon characterizes the growth of a relation and its the part that will test the friendship endured so far. It will either tear them apart, or drive them closer together. Once I understood this, each episode made much more sense. I was also concerned that there might not be much else to do outside of the study room. With 3 paintball episodes, and far too many dances, I was worried about where we would go to keep the show popping. My worry was in vein.
Season 3 contains the study group tackling a new Biology professor who has a special appreciation for life gleaned from years spent in prison. It dares to explore the group as they encounter separate timelines. We become privy to Brita's declared major and how she will work within the group with her new skills. We see Jeff play Foosball, the study group sings, Shirley makes sandwiches, we get a law and order spoof, someone dies, and we are presented with a fantastic 8 bit episode. In short... We don't need no stinking paintball.
The show continues to delve deep in multi-layered plot twists chocked full of cleverly written pop references and dynamically acted out by a superb cast.Read more ›
DVD wise, I couldn't have been happier about the special features: every disc has a blopper reel! EVERY DISC! Every episode has commentary! There are featurettes, which I can't get enough of, especially the Regional Holiday Musical episode!

This season simply proves that this show can go anywhere, do anything, and still be the funniest thing about my week. The sheer talent that the writers, cast, and crew put forth is seen infallibly, though every single episode. But, in this third season, there are definitely some standout stories.
These episodes, Pillows & Blankets, Remidial Chaos Theory, The First Chang Dynasty, and more prove how seamlessly our study group can be thrown into any situation/genre, and come out as the same brilliant, hilarious bunch.
The third season is truly as excellent as the first two. I sure hope the fourth season, even without Dan Harmon, can deliver the same quality. In the meantime, we'll all keep pulling for #sixseasonsandamovie.
