'Community' stars Gillian Jacobs and Yvette Nicole Brown talk about the show post-Dan Harmon and where newbies should start watching.
As if free health care, all-you-can-eat poutine and a Tim Hortons on every corner weren’t reason enough to want to drop everything and visit the Great White North, Netflix Canada recently announced that COMMUNITY seasons one thru three are now available for streaming in their entirety. How do we know this you ask, well aside from being a longtime Netflix Canada subscriber (DAMAGES FTW!), we recently had the pleasure of chatting one-on-two with series stars Gillian Jacobs and Yvette Nicole Brown, who were only too happy to dish about their favorite episodes, behind-the-scenes antics and what life is like at Greendale in a post Dan Harmon world.
With COMMUNITY now available on Netflix Canada, is there a specific episodes, or a favorite one that you’d recommend newbies start with?
Yvette Nicole Brown: Since Netflix Canada is streaming all three seasons, I would suggest that you start at season one, wouldn’t you say Gillian?
Gillian Jacobs: I think our first stand out episode would be Halloween season one.
YNB: Yes! I also think the paintball episode would be a good choice. If you’re trying to introduce someone new to the show I would show them the paintball one or Halloween, but if you’re trying to experience the show for yourself, I would go for the pilot and take a ride.
What about in terms of your character’s specifically?
YNB: I really loved the Halloween episode, because it’s the one where I worked with Gillian for the first time.
GJ: I think Jeff and Shirley season one.
YNB: Really, you think? Alright, we’ll go with Jeff and Shirley, the gossip episode.
