For many, Community is too alienating. It's supposed to be about the daily happenings of a group of university rejects in community college. Yet it's actually  a show about riffing on pop culture, where the school campus is a place to stage Pulp Fiction reenactments, epic Wild West-like paintball fights, and Dungeons and Dragons tournaments. We're not even sure if Community is about community college anymore. But we do admire its dedication to meta humor and its willingness to eschew traditional narrative to do things like, say, have a full episode made in claymation for the holidays. —TA
