25 Episodes 2009 - 2010
Forced to attend classes at Greendale Community College, Jeffrey Winger (Joel McHale), a freshly disbarred lawyer, is hoping to use his ties to former client Dr. Ian Duncan (John Oliver) to get test answers. Of course, things don't go as smoothly as planned, and the study group he formed to get close to Britta (Gillian Jacobs), a fellow student, attracts a group of people that would come to serve as a loyal, albeit wacky family. Among them include Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), a religious housewife, Abed (Danny Pudi), a business student living with Asperger's Syndrome, ex-football star Troy (Donald Glover, Annie (Alison Brie), ex-drug addict and resident overachiever, and former moist-towelette guru Pierce (Chevy Chase). Together, the unlikely crew try to contend with assignments from their moody Spanish teacher (Ken Jeong), as well as contend with the many intricacies of life inside and out of school.
