Review - Community Season 1 Episode 21 Contemporary American Poultry

The two freshman comedy standouts have, without a doubt, been Modern Family and Community. Modern Family takes the usual sitcom family and spins it in a fresh and funny way. Community, however, takes the sitcom and turns it upside down and all around. "Contemporary American Poultry" was a play on Goodfellas, the entire episode voiced by the "gangster," Abed. The episode was streets ahead if you get my drift.

Basically, the plot revolved around chicken finger gangsters with Abed as the fry cook. He uses his power to gain influence and friends, alienating the egotistical Jeff in the process. The episode kind of dragged near the end, but the chicken finger mafia implodes on itself with everyone becoming unhappy.

Score: 9.2/10
