Critic Consensus: Snarky and fast-paced with a surprisingly tender undercurrent and an engaging cast, Community is one of the best new comedies of the season.

Critic Reviews for Community: Season 1

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (23)

Their psyches may be broken, but they still have hearts, and you will root for them, not mock them. Community even expresses in its title something glaringly missing from so many Americans' life. You'll find it here, Community promises.

Thursday night's premiere isn't quite there yet, but since a sitcom with engaging characters remains a lovely thing, "Community" is well worth a shot.

One of the pleasing things about "Community'' has to do with what it is not. The show doesn't fit into any of the more familiar half-hour comedy formats on network TV right now.

I've seen the pilot episode at least four times already and I laugh just as hard at the jokes now as I did the first time.

"Community" can be fresh, funny, smart and extremely aware of its own cleverness.

Top Critic

Community's handful of misfired jokes and one romantic plotline that never really went anywhere don't negate it from being one of the all-time great TV sitcoms.
