Even from its very first episode, Community has been a show that does many things very well. Beyond the acting, it manages to weave in some of the best pop culture references of any sitcom I've ever seen (with a close second being Scrubs).
In this particular episode alone, 'Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking', Community managed to fit in one of the most awesome references ever, and then turn it into an awesome plot point. Troy is a big fan of actor Levar Burton (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Reading Rainbow, Roots), but is the type of fan that can only handle his adoration from afar. So when Levar actually shows up to meet Troy (through Pierce's machinations), Troy's panicked reaction is absolutely perfect. Explaining it isn't much fun, though - so watch the clip! Or if you're even more intrigued, head over to Hulu and watch the whole episode for free.
A few other fun references from this episode:
-It was shot entirely in mockumentary style, a la The Office -Made a dig at the Bruce Willis movie 'Surrogates' -Referenced the unfair cancellation of Joss Whedon's sci-fi series 'Firefly'.
I just recently got into it. My friends kept telling me what a good show it was and I loved it! It's hilarious! I loved the Dungeons and Dragons episode.Unfortunately I've only watched the latest 4 episodes. As soon as I can I'll watch the first season.

One of my favorite Pop Culture References in Community is an episode that has Malcolm-Jamal Walker (Theodore Huxtable from The Cosby Show) in it. I think it is the episode when we find out that Chang and Shirley had sex at the Halloween party. Anyway, Malcolm-Jamal's character is wearing one of the infamous "Bill Cosby" sweaters. When Jeff comments to him "hey man nice sweater" or something a long those lines, Malcolm replies "Thanks, My Dad gave it to me"... When I first saw that, I could not stop laughing. Half of the people I was watching it with (which would have been 1 person) did not even get the reference. Anyway, I think that was one of the best moments in the show's history. Well and the paintball episode!
