In honor of the release of Community: Season 1 coming to DVD, Popdose and the folks at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are hosting an online giveaway.  One lucky Popdose reader will win themselves every episode from the NBC hit series in a luxurious box set.

In case you don’t know, Community is about smooth talking ex-lawyer Jeff Winger. He’s come to Greendale Community College to avoid every bit of it.  Unfortunately for Jeff, he’s not the only misfit to enroll here, and people in need have an odd way of finding each other. First, his fake study group becomes a real study group. Then, over the course of a strange year – from Mexican Halloween to the final ‘Tranny Dance’ – including bad trips, great debates, drunk dials, food fights, epic paintball battles and sinister chicken finger conspiracies – the group becomes a family, something Jeff never wanted, but clearly needs.

Joel McHale (The Soup) stars as Winger. His exceptional cast mates include the lovely Gillian Jacobs as the neurotic Britta; scene stealing Danny Pudi and the movie quoting Abed; Alison Brie (Mad Men) as the seemingly naive Annie; Derrick Comedy’s brilliant Donald Glover as former high school quarterback, Troy; the hilarious Yvette Nicole Brown as Shirley; and Chevy Chase (regaining his legendary form) as Pierce. Ken Jeong (The Hangover) also appears as Senor Chang, the group’s Spanish teacher.

Special features on the DVD include :

– Cast & Crew Commentary on Every Episode!
– Outtakes!
– Creative Compromises
– Community Season One Cast Evaluations
– “Advanced Criminal Law” Alternate
– Season One Highlight Reel
– Mini Episodes
– Communication Studies Extended Producer’s Cut
– The Art of Discourse Commentary with Dan Harmon, Danny Pudi, Donald Glover, Adam Davidson and Chris McKenna

Pretty f’n sweet, huh? Community was one of my favorite shows from last year; the episode “Modern Warfare” became an instant television classic.

What do you have to do? Well, it’s easy, my friend. Email me with an answer to the following question. What is the coveted prize to the winner of the paintball war in “Modern Warfare?” Don’t post the answer below. Email me.  Did you hear me? Email me! By Thursday at 8:00 PM, ET. I will randomly choose the winner on Friday.

That’s eat. Easy peasy.  Good luck.

And to get you in the mood for Community, here is a remix of the enitre season by DJ Steve Porter.
