‘Basic Intergluteal Numismatics’

In this week’s episode of Community, Shirley’s (Yvette Nicole Brown) long awaited launch of her sandwich business is overshadowed by the return of the ass-crack bandit – a mystery person posting coins down the cracks of Greendale students. Seriously, who thinks up these things?

Community - Season 5

Although entirely unbothered in the beginning, the study group springs into action after Troy (Donald Glover) falls victim to the bandit and they set out to investigate the crimes and unveil the culprit in true Mystery Inc fashion.

Just as the sexual tension between Annie (Alison Brie) and Jeff (Joel McHale) reaches breaking point, it seems as though the writers got bored and gave up on the episode – with the case mysteriously going cold without any real resolution. What had seemed like such a promising episode, ended in disappointment once more. Such a shame.

It’s still early days but we find ourselves asking the fateful question, is this what the rest of season 5 is going to be like?
