Overview

ABOUT THE BOOK

While the second season produced some of the best Community episodes to date, including the Emmy-winning Christmas episode, it also felt the most uneven season to date (which could explain the steep decline in ratings from first season).

Whereas most shows put their best “foot” forward with the first few episodes of the season, Community repeated its mistake of having the best storytelling after the half point of the season - by which time the show had lost significant viewership.

As a viewer, I wanted to fall in love deeper with every following episode and there were times when I had to remind myself that Community as a show is a living, breathing thing. Other times, the show’s brilliance and epic, quotable moments, smacked me in the face and upside my head, making me feel guilty for ever having doubted the writers and show’s creator.

Did Community iron out the major problem it had with the first season? It really didn’t. We learned new things about the characters but the information trickled out like water from a broken faucet. Was it a genuine situational comedy? Not really. Every episode revolved around something absurd happening, arguments that seemingly escalated over nothing, and yet the viewers could theoretically find themselves in similar circumstances without trying hard.

One thing’s for sure: Community is too clever even for the most devoted viewer. Just when you think they have lost track of the bigger picture, their social commentary is right on point. Which is really the reason why the show is more popular when it is in reruns - TV watchers have the option to analyze every joke and explore all the meta references.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Evelyn hails from a very tiny country of Estonia, so it's ironic that she chose to be a writer when English isn't her first language! After a few years of working for newspapers and local TV news, she chose to forego any idea of a schedule and started a freelance writing and marketing business. Because it isn't the most stable of jobs, Evelyn would often supplement her income with random gigs, including being a singing telegram and an airline interpreter. She has an unnaturally close relationship with food and for a number of years worked as a chef. However, after crying too many times in the kitchen, Evelyn had to give up her professional culinary pursuits. Instead, you'll find her traveling, reading, participating in your general "debauchery", and making new friends. She has several degrees and some accolades but she'd much rather tell you about the time she smuggled a kitten on an airplane out of Russia.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

The second season took a lot more risks stylistically and tackled more iconic film tropes, including the ever-popular zombie takeover, Pulp Fiction and flashback sequences.

When the group returns for their second year at Greendale, everyone is excited to build on the friendships they developed during their freshman year. Problem is there is some awkwardness between Jeff and Annie, and Jeff and Britta after last season’s love triangle fiasco. Eventually, the group decides that it is better for the health of everyone if all members remain strictly platonic towards each other.

During an unfortunate medical scare that causes delirium, Shirley and Chang have sex at the school’s Halloween dance. Neither of them remember it until Shirley finds out she’s pregnant. Chang looses out on his chance to join the study group since Shirley despises him. The worst of it is she doesn’t know if the baby is Chang’s or her estranged husband’s, Andre’s. After some struggling, Shirley decides to try to work it out with Andre, who has promised to raise the baby, regardless of who is the biological father. Shirley goes into labor at Greendale and it is revealed that Chang is not the father on the account of the baby being born without a tale.
