Favorite Moments from Community: Season 2

About a month ago, I wrote a blog about my favorite moments from Community. (The best show on television that no one watches.)  In my first post I focused exclusively on episodes from season 1. Now it is time to move on and focus on season 2. Let us begin

Anthropology 101
This episode is episode one of season 2 and it picks up right where season 1 left off. The group is back from summer vacation and is in a new class together, Anthropology. (Which is taught by the eternally funny Betty White.) The fallout of the Jeff/Annie kiss is explored, and Troy begins posting Pierce sayings as tweets. Truly wonderful. Here's a fun clip of Annie finding out about Jeff and Britta hooking up.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons
Not only is Community laugh out loud funny, but it has heart and a moral message. This episode is a perfect example. Jeff is worried that "Fat" Neil is depressed, so he and the group invite him to a very special game of Dungeons & Dragons. Pierce, furious to be left out of the game, crashes it and becomes the villian we all know he can be. This is television at its finest. There's humor, sorrow, and the experience of seeing things from another person's perspective. Plus there's this:

Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas
This episode is almost entirely in claymation. CLAYMATION PEOPLE!!!! That alone is worth watching. But the fact that they bring back the old school Holiday episode just warms my nostalgic heart. This will be an episode I watch around Christmas time.

Critical Film Studies
It's an episode about a Pulp Fiction party that is encased in another movie, which I do not wish to spoil. Just keeping everything straight is a miracle. So many great character moments between Jeff and Abed. Like this one:

A Fistfull of Paintballs/ For a Few More Paintballs
Much like Modern Warfare from season 1, I cannot write a description that will do these two episodes justice. Just sit back and watch this.

P.S. They make an Ice Cream cone EVIL!!! How crazy is that?!?!?!?!?!?
