For new shows it was Raising Hope which had a Halloween winner. Of course Cloris Leachman is beyond funny in the show and especially this episodes where she thinks she is an eight year old girl. But unlike other show, the characters had costumes which looked like they were made by real people not professional Hollywood costumers. Modern Family had a wonderful family haunted house following a great caper where Mitchell went to work as Spiderman and had to climb out the window. Cougar Town, one of my favorite shows, had three of the characters dress up as other character. The Office had another great Halloween episode with some great costumes and a wonderful group insanity over the $15K coupon book. I'm getting to enjoy Outsourced more and more and their Holloween episode played on the culture clash the show seems to be based around.
But by far the funniest episode was Community. This was not only a great Halloween episode it might have been the best episode they have had. Besides the hilarious zombie story, there was so much to love: Shirley's costume, Sr. Chang's costume, Troy and Abed's matching costume, the dean's costume. Also the Abba soundtrack was delightfully quirky behind the scariness of a zombie attack. It was just a perfect episode.
But wait, the Simpsons Halloween isn't until next week still. I hate Baseball.
