The Pajiba 10 — For Your Consideration: The "Community" Season 3 All Stars

By Rob Payne | Miscellaneous | June 22, 2012 | Comments ()


If the sitcom "Community" is remembered at all in the coming years after it finishes airing new episodes, it will most likely be thought of and written about in much the same way as the critically beloved "M*A*S*H." That is, there will be the Dan Harmon and the Post-Dan Harmon seasons, much like critics view the aforementioned sitcom before and after co-creator Larry Gelbart quit the show, or maybe even the Larry David vs. non-Larry David episodes of "Seinfeld." At this point, though, what will happen with "Community" is mostly unknown, besides premiering after every single other NBC show this Fall, of course.

However, regardless of what happens in season four (and possibly beyond),the most valuable players of season three -- and, thus, the last installment of the Dan Harmon influence -- were Troy Barnes and Britta Perry. Both characters have changed a lot since "Community" premiered in 2009, and this year they finally seemed on the cusp of requiting their potential love before the season came to a more-or-less satisfyingly open conclusion. Still, despite the coining of "Britta" as a mutually destructive verb, this was most definitely the year of Britta Perry, as well as the destiny-free awakening of Troy "Constable Reggie" Barnes. The fact that this was also the year of Troy-and-Britta-ship, or Broy (maybe?), is icing on the cake.

So, because Joel McHale and Alison Brie are more than old hat at this point, for your Pajiba 10 consideration: Donald Glover and Gillian Jacobs. Enjoy!

    I would loove to be the ham in that pumpernickel-rye sandwich.

  • PerpetualIntern

    Donald Glover. Yum.

  • Caspar

    I've changed my name by deed poll to Donald Lover. If you don't see him on my list, I've suffered an aneurysm.

  • Arran

    Jesus, Glover is so cut it's almost cartoonish. Nerdy guys with superhero physiques are SO UNFAIR.

  • E-Money

    I won't stop until they say James Franco is the white Donald Glover. Gambino is a mastermind. In other words DONALD GLOVER FOR PRESIDENT (of my pants)

  • Vakilika

    I love Gillian Jacobs so much more after her nerdist interview, and I liked her before.

  • John G.

    Donald Glover is one sexy dracula.

  • Damn straight. Glover is absolutely on this year's list.

  • sjfromsj

    When I'm married and have a family and a house and a real life, if Donald Glover comes to my door and asks me to run away with him, I wouldn't even pack. I'd just leave with him that second. So that's how I feel about this suggestion. He IS my Pajiba 10. And my Guilt-Free Three.

  • Poptart

    You have to pack a bag ahead of time. So Ewan and I can get away quickly....

  • Tinkerville

    I'm straight as an arrow but man I want to jump into bed with Gillian.. Also, Gillian Jacobs > Alison Brie in my book.

  • JenVegas

    Yeaaah I hate that movie he made about the boy investigators but maaaaan Donald Glover is supersexyfunny.

  • Kip Hackman

    Mystery Team is awesome and you are like the AT&T of people. You are the exact opposite of Batman.

  • POINGjam

    I'm going with Tritta.

  • Nimue

    I get to see Childish Gambino tomorrow!!!

  • You will love it; his shows are a blast!

  • Clementine Bojangles

    I like how pale she is. Is that weird? It makes me feel better about my pasty, pasty skin.

  • Threenineteen

    I'm still an Abed girl, but I see the appeal.

  • TheReinaG

    Ugh, can we please take down the unmuteable auto-play ads already? Man, they're awful.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Gillian and I could probably make one hell of an inverted Oreo with Childish Gambino.
