The Synopsis: Community is a smart, exuberant comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work.
Season two kicked off with a guest appearance by the legendary Betty White. The six-time Emmy Award winner and cultural icon played Professor June Bauer, an esteemed, but slightly unhinged anthropology professor. This season has also featured guest appearances by Drew Carey as Jeff Winger’s former boss at the law firm, Rob Corddry as Jeff’s former colleague, Hilary Duff as a “mean girl,” The Daily Show’s John Oliver, reprising his role as Professor Duncan and Kevin Corrigan as the mysterious Professor Professorson. This year, the study group has taken an unexpected trip in a space simulator; become Halloween zombies; and morphed into stop-motion animation. We have also learned more about the characters’ lives this year – seeing them in their home environments from time to time. And finally, Señor Chang, who enrolled as a full time student at Greendale, is on a continuing quest to join the study group.
