5.0 out of 5 stars Cool. Cool cool cool., 18 Sep 2013

This review is from: Community - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Community gets better and better. If you're not watching it by now, then you really should be.
If you're already watching it, you know what to expect. Season 3 delivers, and delivers well.

Particular highlights are the guest appearances from John Goodman, Troy's destiny, Annie moving in with Troy and Abed, Bat-Abed, Jeff and Dean's duet, the rise and fall of the Chang Dynasty, a whole episode played out as an 8-bit computer game, and my favourite episode so far - creating multiple timelines from the roll of a dice, leading to the birth of Evil Abed.

Cool. Cool cool cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still great, 25 April 2013
This review is from: Community - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
I don't think Season 3 was quite as great as Season 2, but it was pretty close. The more I watch Community, the more I think it's the best comedy to come out of the US in a good long while, and this season kept the show fresh by taking the characters in some new directions. Now we just need the DVD release - it's incredibly annoying that we all have to wait for some minor satellite channel to get round to airing all the episodes before we can buy the box set. Bring it out already!

4.0 out of 5 stars Why don't more people know about this?, 15 Sep 2013

This review is from: Community - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this box-set in three sittings. It began and ended slower than the two previous seasons, but it does provide some meatier story-telling than Season's 1 and 2. It's also that bit less episodic than the preceding two seasons. And it has a refreshing darkness to it. While it doesn't (spoiler alert) have the epic paintball finale that we've come to expect, it does have an American Civil-War docu-drama style, two parter, describing a pillow fight, or more accurately, a pillow war. There's also an interesting and sometimes tense, examination of Abed's place within the group and within wider society.

If you've seen Season's 1 and 2, then this is a necessity. If you're dipping your toe, then you could do a great deal worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Six Seasons And A Movie, 9 Sep 2013

This review is from: Community - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Community season 3 follows on from the last two. It doesn't have paintball episodes but does have a Law and Order parody, a computer game show, school aged security forces marshaled by Chang, more ridiculous outfits from the Dean, guests slots from John Goodman, Moby and a few others as well as quite a bit of surreal humour.

It has also become self referential, even getting the characters to reference the six seasons and a movie call of their fans. Somehow it all works because its Community and is wacky, fun and also just a tiny bit meaningful. Jeff Winger is now not the focus, happily. Abed seems to be quite central and his childlike fantasies are given an almost Star Trek holoroom treatment. Troy has an ongoing storyline and Shirley and Pearce have a journey of their own. The story arc at the end of the season brings a lot of laughs, some parodies (oceans 11 and more) as well as some story development. This really moves the whole series away from the college and further into the 'Greendale Seven's' lives.

Its an intelligent, warm and wacky season which if you have watched up until now you will enjoy. It makes you believe that american sit-coms can be funny again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever comedy, 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe not the most consistent season but the highs are still high. It never cheats, so no matter how self-aware or meta it gets it always explores the boundaries of its own format without needlessly discarding them and as a result always feels satisfying even when it's not entirely successful. Good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 keeps up the high quality., 28 May 2013

This review is from: Community - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
It's amazing on how far behind the UK is with this show. In america is's finished season 4 and has been renewed for a 5th season.

That being said, I look forward to the 30th of Sept to get my hands on this DVD. The writers noticed that this season their stories were a lot darker than the first two, and they jumped at this chance to experiment with very surprising and crazy episodes.

Constant jokes throughout with countless references and easter eggs of pretty much anything and everything is always joy to watch for the keen eye tv watcher. It keeps you on your toes and makes the viewing pleasure a lot more enjoying.

A pleasure to watch multiple times.
5/5

and on a different note please recommend to your friends! because this show is so unjustly small in the UK. Hardly anyone have heard of it. It's only shown on Sony Television channel (which is an unheard of channel) at 11pm on Friday nights. If this show was put on e4 or comedy central the fan base would grow astronomically. There have been many lesser comedies which have enjoyed some fame on these channels and have now been axed because theyve been pretty poor. Shows such as the new normal, whitney and happy endings all no where near as good as community yet got a chance on a big channel in the UK.

anyway rant over. Community is the smartest comedy around. And deserves the recognition it deserves.
six seasons and a movie!!

Great season, but not as good as 1 and 2. It includes one of my favourite episodes 'Remedial Chaos Theory' and the two part 'Pillows and Blankets'. Commentaries are excellent and it's worth buying just for them alone.

This review is from: Community - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
For anyone that enjoys Community, this season is a must. It contains two of my favourite episodes of all time and the rest of the season is very strong. I know some people think that the show had a few misses in this season but, while it did get quite dark and experimental at times, I would say that the show only became stronger because of it.

Incredible show; fantastic season; get it bought.
