In honor of "Community"- a review of every episode. (S1;E11- "The Politics of Human Sexuality")
4 June 2016 | by MaximumMadnessSee all my reviews

(This is the eleventh part in an ongoing series, in which I am writing brief reviews of each and every episode of Dan Harmon's beloved cult- comedy "Community." Originally conceived as a response to NBC's cancellation of the series before it was revived for its final season on Yahoo.)

Now this is just a good, fun episode all around, and is probably one of the zanier entries in the wonderful first season of "Community."

While Annie (Alison Brie) helps Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) throw an STD awareness fair at Greendale, Jeff (Joel McHale) double-dates with Pierce (Chevy Chase). All the while, Troy (Donald Glover) challenges Abed (Danny Pudi) to a series of physical challenges.

It's always welcome when a character besides Jeff is able to take center stage, and here Annie is really given some time to shine. Not only through some great comedy beats thanks to Hillary Winston's quirky writing, but also a fun few scenes that allow her to use this humor to show and grow as a character a bit. (It's funny how an anatomically correct male mannequin is able to lead to serious character growth. Only on "Community"...)

There's also a really good guest-role played by Sharon Lawrence who has a minor sub-plot that does help lead to some nice development for Jeff. And the Troy/Abed sub-plot, while a bit silly and unnecessary (it feels like filler designed to give them something to do), is good fun.

It may not be among the best of the series... or frankly even the season. But regardless, this is one of the more silly and entertaining episodes from the show's humble beginnings, and I think most fans would love it.

I give it a very strong 9 out of 10.
