Created by Dan Harmon, Community is considered as one of the best sitcoms of this century, often lauded for its innovative storytelling techniques and meta humour. Community is responsible for giving prominence to talents like The Russo Bros, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Danny Glover et al.

The show is set around a community college called Greendale, filled with misfits, where a group of six eccentric people become study partners and later close friends. McHale's Jeff Winger is the leader of this pack, known for his witty remarks, and motivating monologues, but is the most insecure of the lot. The show that lasts six seasons shows his internal growth into being a better human and a better friend, all the while, throwing some excellent zingers.
