If you turn on any episode of Community, you are likely to end up holding your belly and shaking with laughter.
But if you are one of the millions who have been watching Community from the pilot episode to the present, you are likely to be rolling around on the floor with tears of joy streaming from your eyes.
In this golden age of ensemble comedy, the Community characters stand out with their addictive personalities and a new level of quirkiness. Led by the charismatic (and douchy) ex-lawyer Jeff (Joel McHale) who accidentally forms a study group to get into anarchist Britta’s (Gillian Jacobs) pants, our Spanish study group includes characters ranging from the millionaire Pierce Hawthorne (Chevy Chase) to the ex football star Troy (Donald Glover) to (my personal favorite) aspiring filmmaker Abed (Danny Pudi). And let’s not forget Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) the sassy divorcee, Annie (Alison Brie) the geeky sexpot, and illustrious Spanish teacher Señor Chang (Ken Jeong).
Thanks to Dan Harmon’s superb writing, Community is unafraid of smart storytelling and nails cultural specificity and off-the-wall inside humor in every episode. What other shows in television history can you name that can successfully go from an episode where characters become zombies, to an episode where they scheme to take over the chicken tenders industry? Not many.
It’s my great pleasure to announce that starting today, Community is coming to Hulu and Hulu Plus. Hulu Plus will be the exclusive place where fans can watch every episode from every season. Fans can now watch every episode (current and back seasons) of Community on the Hulu Plus subscription service. Hulu Plus subscribers will have next-day access to current season episodes of Community as well as the entire back library of seasons 1 and 2, in HD, on Internet-connected TVs, gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, set top boxes, and mobile phones and tablets. Users of the free Hulu service can continue to watch five episodes of the current season the day after air.
Check out the latest episode of season 3.
We know there is a large contingency of die-hard Community fans out there—after all, Community has been one of the top 20 shows of all time on Hulu, and was the top-performing comedy in Hulu’s “Best in Show” competition two years running. Just this week, viewers voted it as their favorite show in a TV Guide poll. Hulu is all about finding a specific show that we know will resonate with a specific audience segment on Hulu. We want to create a place where Community fans can watch the show and share your favorite hilarious moments with your friends using Hulu’s social features like Facebook Connect and the Hulu app on Facebook. Tell us what your favorite Community moment is! Here’s one of ours (was this the birthplace of Childish Gambino?). Happy watching!
