Community (Season 1) (2009)

Incredibly well-written and acted from the very first episode, Dan Harmon’s unique and challenging sitcom was unlike anything that’s ever come before – even in the era of peak television. Joel McHale leads a first-rate cast that challenges convention wisdom through its diversity and fully fleshed characters, wearing their flaws on their sleeves and extending a bridge to the audience in the process. In retrospect it’s unusual to see Jim Rash’s Dean used so sparingly in this first season, but even in his brief scenes here he manages to steal every moment, which is a tall order given how terrific everyone and everything is.
