What's so great about this show? I've watched a few episodes and it was pretty dull...


First three seasons are good

This season... Ummm Not so much

Watch the first three seasons.


Not sure which season I was watching, but one of the episodes was about the UN. I couldn't watch anymore after that one.

I was just watching it on TV so I wouldn't be able to find out which season I was watching.

This season has been rather underwhelming. It's had its moments, but no standout episode yet.

The UN one would be season 3. If you really want to get into Community, try these episodes:

"Debate 109"
"Contemporary American Poultry"
"Modern Warfare"
"Advanced Dungeons & Dragons"
"Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design"
"Remedial Chaos Theory"
"Pillows and Blankets"
"Digital Estate Planning"

My favourite's gotta be Remedial Chaos Theory. Alternate timelines, chaos, character studies and other fun stuff.

Are those episodes similar to the UN one? If not then I'll check them out, specifically the one you mentioned.

I honestly don't remember much about the UN one except Annie throwing that cringe-worthy temper tantrum and the weird floating heads. The only funny thing I remember from that episode was Asian Annie, so I'm not surprised you didn't like it.

The Brightest Timeline: Dan Harmon Returning to Community
By Aisha Harris | Posted Monday, June 3, 2013, at 12:33 PM


Over the past year, Community has provided numerous off-screen surprises. First, its showrunner and creative center Dan Harmon was ousted from the show after internal conflict with NBC back in May of 2012. Then, the date Oct. 19 became a running joke for Community fans after the show’s Season 4 premiere was pushed back to February. Chevy Chase, a frequent source of tension on the set, left the show midway through filming. And after a less-than-stellar (and shortened) Harmon-less season with generally unimproved ratings, NBC raised eyebrows when it decided to renew the show for a fifth go-round.

As if all those twists and turns weren’t enough, this weekend brought the most unexpected development in the series’ rollercoaster history so far: Community will be Harmon-less no more, with the series’ creator returning as showrunner, along with former writer and executive producer Chris McKenna. Harmon himself confirmed the news on Twitter over the weekend, crediting one of the show’s stars, Joel McHale, as the reason for his return.

This is the biggest curveball yet for fans of the show—and likely the most joyous news they could hope for. Harmon’s apparent enthusiasm now is a far cry from his acrimonious departure—and while he may have had to swallow some of his pride to return to those who ousted him in the first place, it seems notable that NBC recognized how far off track the show became without him involved.

Now more questions arise. Will Chase return as well? Probably not: Harmon also tweeted a list of “deal breakers” for his deal with Sony Pictures Television, and named all of the main cast members except for Chase, with whom he has had a very contentious relationship. Will Community be able to reclaim its former glory? Even with Harmon back, will fans be willing to stick around for a fifth season?

The answers to those questions are, obviously, less certain. But whatever the results, we have a reason to look forward to more Community again. And even if we don’t get six seasons and a movie, at least there’s restored hope that the study group can go out on top.

Bumping this. Not sure how many people here still watch the show. I still like it. Just caught up on season 5. I enjoyed the season. Thought it was better than season 4. Favorite episode was probably Cooperative Polygraphy.

 

Hopefully it gets renewed for a sixth season. Not too sure though, read some stuff earlier that it might be done.

Can't believe some people..  This is why I always  hold eye contact while making a circle with my fingers on one hand, then sticking a single finger from the other hand in and out through the circle. I generally top this off by rapidly raising my eyebrows.

It had better not be done. Give it at least one more year.

 

I really liked the last season. A couple of episodes here that are among the best in the entire show.

 

Was planning to bump this thread earlier in the year, but I was too lazy to search it up, lol.

 

Give it a full 20 something episode treatment, and a full season with this cast and writers will do wonders. Losing Troy was hard, but the way they managed without him was far better than I expected.

 

Hope an asteroid doesn't destroy the earth before they start their next school year.

A full season would be awesome. These 13 episode seasons are too rushed. It's like the school year starts and then it's right away over.

This season flew by. I remember liking it a whole lot more then season 4, but hardly remember any of it. I feel the opposite about Troy leaving. Although he was good, him leaving also leaves Abed in an interesting spot. Most opportunity for character growth with him. To me, I honestly felt the loss of Chevy Chase was huge. I know he's a d*nk in real life, but his character fit in perfectly with the rest of the group. Having a villain in the show who is also part of the group, especially someone like Chase, was incredibly needed. Like the show just fine, but I think it may be time for it to come to an end. Besides, I get my Joel McHale fix through The Soup.

He wanted to focus on Childish Gambino?

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

i checked around the interwebs and this is what i found:

"In 2013, Glover signed on to create a music-themed show for FX titled Atlanta in which he will star, write, and executive produce. Consequently, Glover decided to reduce his work for NBC, and appeared in only five of Community's 13 episode fifth season. Although many TV stations were interested in picking up his half-hour comedy, he ultimately picked FX due to their willingness to work around his touring schedule."

I am a huge Bino fan, going to his concert on Sunday in Vancouver.

I enjoyed season 5, my favourite character of the season was Dean Pelton. The dean was hilarious from that episode when he was rapping to the last episode, and also Chang had a bunch of funny moments too.

Abed though was really annoying without Troy, it just doesn't feel the same without him. Britta wasn't that bad, but she had her Britta moments.

Not surprising, and probably for the best. Some shows have a shelf life and it is best that they don't overstay their welcome. Community would have been fantastic had they wrapped it up after 3 seasons. Another show that should have stopped at 2-3 seasons was Scrubs. Firm believer in the BBC model. Have some integrity.

Can't say I'm too surprised, but I was really hoping they could stick for one more season. Five seasons and a movie...?

I'm not surprised at all. I really like the first 3 seasons but after that it was trash. I only made it halfway through season 4 until I couldn't watch anymore.

I will remember this show fondly. I loved it for a good while one of the few comedies I could enjoy but the plot was not designed for a long series. It really was unimpressive of late so I don't mind it being cancelled so much. I shall enjoy the memories.

When they did an episode on the Ass Crack Bandit you just knew it was going to get canned.
