Shows how how ambitious Community is...
20 July 2011 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas is another stand-out episode from Community. It seems like every other episode this season has been that. I just want to say that this is the reason why Community is the best comedy right now. This episode is a perfect example- it is really ambitious and never ceases to surprise me. The stop motion is pretty fantastic, and the entire story was completely enjoyable. The writing is impeccable and it's really great how the whole cast is always on board with everything the writers come up with. You can tell they had a great time doing the voices. All in all, this is definitely a must see episode from TV's finest comedy.
