Community is about higher education – and lower expectations. The student body at Greendale Community College is made up of high-school losers, newly divorced housewives, and old people who want to keep their minds active. Within these not-so-hallowed halls is a band of misfits, at the centre of which is fast-talking lawyer Jeff Winger, whose degree has been revoked. The group forms a study group and, in true The Breakfast Club fashion, they end up learning a lot more about themselves then they do about their course work.
