Each season of the community has been ranked from worst to best (including the gas leak year)
Numerous factors spoke against “Community” in the sixth season. Oh, and NBC canceled “Community” and instead streamed it on the blink-and-you-missed-it streaming service Yahoo! Screen. Thankfully, season 6 is pretty decent after all! Even the lackluster “Community” tops most other shows, and Season 6 delivers enough highlights to land it squarely in the middle of this ranking.
Brown was missed, but Paget Brewster’s new character, Frankie Dart, added a welcome dynamic to the Save Greendale Committee’s campaign. Keith David’s Elroy Patashnik is particularly successful, filling the role of “stubborn older man” left open by the departures of Season 5’s Chevy Chase and Jonathan Banks as Buzz Hickey. Even Ken Jeong’s Chang – far from the biggest character – softens and proves entertaining in a handful of episodes dedicated to Chang’s burgeoning acting career.
Series finales are hard to pull off, but the final episode of Community – Emotional Consequences of Broadcast Television – wraps it all up beautifully. In typical timeline-splintering “community” fashion, Abed envisions a future for all should “the show” be renewed. Always a character who struggled to accept change, he often turned to pop culture as a means of coping. Many “Community” viewers could relate to this, and it’s heart-touching to see Abed coming to terms with life’s uncertainties. Bring on the movie now!
