This is so much more for my own pleasure than it is for anyone else’s benefit.
I don’t think I’m blowing anyone’s mind by saying that Community is my favourite show. Of the limited amount of blog posts on here, a lot of them are dedicated to the series – certainly the ones that are most read.
I got into a debate on social media with other fans about the quality of certain episodes, and one thing lead to another and now I feel as though I might as well have this list on hand for anyone who wishes to know where I stand on the episodes (which, admittedly, will not be very many people indeed).
Here’s how this list will be broken down:
The episodes, for the sake of clarifying the jumps in quality between each ranking, are divided into 9 distinct sections, identified below from most negative to most positive:
The Godawful – the real terrible one.
The Painfuls – the ones that are not good’uns.
The Sad Trombones – the ones that basically are almost fine, but come off as a wet fart.
The Solid Grounds – you know. They’re solid. Good, solid, stuff.
The Charmings – these are the high-quality week-ins, week-outs. The stuff that captures the soul of the series and links the highest caliber of episode together.
The Damn Fines – they’re damn fine, indeed.
The Hell Yeahs – these are getting pretty self-explanatory.
The Top Dogs – the masterpieces.
The Royalty – the masterpieces for which I can’t decide the proper placement, and are most likely to be in a constant state of flux with regards to their final placements.
For each episode, I’ll write a few thoughts relevant to it, so as to justify even creating this list. Some will be more detailed than others, and absolutely none of them will be worth your while, but I’ve embedded a bunch of photos and YouTube videos that’ll hopefully be an enticing enough trip down memory lane in order to make you read this anyway.
