"Community" Christmas Episode Review

NBC's "Community," a comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College.

At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, "The Soup"), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group that eventually learns more about themselves than their course work.

Also among the series stars are: comedy legend Chevy Chase ("Chuck") as Pierce, a man whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom; Gillian Jacobs ("The Book of Daniel") as Britta, the 20-something dropout with something to prove; Yvette Nicole Brown ("Rules of Engagement") as Shirley, a sassy middle-aged divorcée; Danny Pudi ("Greek") as Abed, a pop culture junkie; Alison Brie ("Mad Men") as Annie, a high-strung perfectionist; Donald Glover ("30 Rock") as Troy, a former high school football star trying to find his way, and Ken Jeong ("The Hangover") as Señor Chang.

The "Community" Christmas episode, "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" is one everyone will be talking about! In this special stop motion animation episode, the meaning of Christmas is lost and Abed's intense fixation on Christmas concerns the group.

I have to admit that I have not previously watched an episode of "Community." The hit cast is what drew me to this project of reviewing the Christmas Episode. Fans of "Community", these actors and stop motion animation will love this episode. Having never watched an episode of "Community" I felt a little lost, however there were several scenes that were comical. "Community" airs on NBC Thursday evenings at 8/7c.
