Created by comedy writer Dan Harmon, Community follows a small band of community college students as they attempt to navigate their second chance at eduction. Originally brought together as a study group, they find themselves becoming friends, lovers and comrades-in-arms against the surreality of their new school.

Jeff (Joe McHale) is a smooth-talking lawyer who gets sent back to the classroom when it's discovered he falsified his degree. He tries to make the most of his situation by courting Britta (Gillian Jacobs), a 20-something dropout looking to make something of herself, but things get complicated when he also discovers feelings for Annie (Alison Brie), a perky straight A student trying to kick a prescription drug habit.

Annie herself has a crush on Troy (Donald Glover), a former high school athlete who lost his scholarship, but Troy doesn't notice much of girls at all, instead building an unlikely friendship with Abed (Danny Pudi), a film student and pop culture nerd. Rounding out the gang are Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) and Pierce (Chevy Chase), two middle-aged students who are learning business and combating loneliness, respectively.

With such a crazy cast, it's easy to get lost in the chaos of Greendale Community College, but much of the bedlam is intentional. Showrunner Dan Harmon is famous for his clever comedy and his characters benefit from the same. Their jokes are quick-witted and self-aware; the actors are encouraged to improvise. The show has also gained a reputation for engaging its own audience, creating webisodes during mid-season breaks and stunt casting fan favorites when encouraged on social media sites.

Its meta comedy and pop culture homages have also made it a hit among fans. Despite relatively low ratings, it's topped several viewer polls and critics' lists, even snagging a People's Choice Award in 2009. It currently airs in twelve countries and will also enter syndication in 2013.

Community has run for three seasons and will be coming back for a fourth in fall 2012. No one knows when the cast will actually graduate, but one thing's for sure: The party will be spectacular.
