Community (Season 3) (2011)

The third season of Dan Harmon’s unique network sitcom is a bit weaker than the first two, but given great they were, that isn’t to suggest that it’s somehow subpar. Some of Harmon’s grasp of the show seems to have slipped, with extended diatribes about pillow forts and nostalgia-tinged video games, which, while amusing, tend to distract from the central dynamics at the show’s core. That being said, there really was nothing else like this or television before or since, and Harmon’s brilliant, strange creation gets a pass on its less successful asides thanks to everything else it does so, so well.
