“Community” season 5, episode 5: “Geothermal Escapism” airs Thursday on NBC.
In this episode, as Troy prepares to leave Greendale, Abed organizes an epic going-away activity befitting his best friend’s departure. What starts out as a fun little game grows into a heated, high-stakes competition destined to make history at Greendale.
NBC describes the show as follows:
“A smart comedy series about higher education — and lower expectations. The student body at Greendale Community College is made up of high-school losers, newly divorced housewives, and old people who want to keep their minds active. Within these not-so-hallowed halls, “Community” focuses on a band of misfits, at the center of which is a fast-talkin’ lawyer whose degree has been revoked (Joel McHale), who form a study group and end up learning a lot more about themselves than they do about their course work.”
“Community” season 5, episode 5 airs Jan. 23 at 9 p.m. EST, 8 p.m. CST on NBC.
