Joel McHale talks ‘Community' season 5, Pittsburgh

by: Rob Johnston Updated:


Heading into its fifth season, "Community" is a smart, exuberant comedy that is consistently ranked as one of the most inventive and original half-hours on television.

This ensemble comedy centers on a tight-knit group of friends who all met at what is possibly the world's worst educational institution - Greendale Community College.

Joel McHale stars as Jeff Winger, a fast-talking lawyer who was caught with a phony college degree. Disbarred until he could earn a legitimate degree, Winger chose Greendale, thinking he could breeze through the mediocre school without a hitch. However, he soon found himself the reluctant leader of a disparate group of misfits, all stuck at Greendale for different reasons.

I talked to McHale about his recent trip to Pittsburgh, the new season and what fans of the show can expect to see!
