Community Season 5 Finale “Basic Sandwich” Review

After a few re-watches, I’m still now sure how I feel about the season finale of Community. I will say, however, that I appreciate the very different direction the show took in closing out season 5 then it did in season 4. In season 4, the showrunners opted to write a finale that could have served as a series finale in which we saw Jeff and Pierce graduate from Greendale. This season, the show decided to embrace the elephant in the room – it’s uncertain future – and use that to create a two-part finale full of meta and fan service. Although it wasn’t my favorite episode, the approach felt much truer to theCommunity we’ve come to know and love over five seasons.
