So okay, I liked the new episode. It's a good episode and a lot of fun.



But... why make it Hickey's real son? Why not Jeff? Remember that Hickey's really the character who doesn't want to be in the "Save Greendale Committee" and Jeff shouldn't be over his father issues all so easily as S4 wanted us to believe. It seems like Harmon's just focusing on bringing in characters we're not meant to see ever again (the Vince Gilligan VHS actor, for example) instead of the group itself. What about Troy? Pierce?


I dunno, maybe it's time to end the show. It's obviously still entertaining (and VERY funny), but it's like it's at the cost of the continuity of the central characters' previous struggles, like we've just decided to shut up about it and therefore they're resolved. What do you guys think?


EDIT: Or hey, at the very least, when they're split off into two different rooms, cause some damn friction between the characters. They obviously ended up totally opposed to each other but the result of this conflict was a montage that just brought them out of the conflict without telling us why/how/what they did etc.


So again, really funny episode, fun to watch, probably wasn't easy to write if the studio went "make us another D&D episode!" and he just wanted to justify the D&D, but not Community at its best. I want to be optimistic but I think those days are well behind us now.

So I just finished the 3rd season, i've heard the 4th season is terrible so should I skip it and go on to the 5th or was their any chang-es that would mess up the continuity for me or should I watch it ?

I skipped Season 4 completely and I've had no problem picking up on Season 5.

The 4th season was really good and you should definitely ignore all the people that don't like thing and watch it.

I get that it didn't feel the same, and the characters seem more shallow and cartoonish... Apart from that it's just a lot of bandwagonary though; The writers that took over from Dan Harmon were capable, but also had the odds stacked way against them. They came up with good episodes and good jokes, and it's still enjoyable television in my opinion. It just didn't have the same rewatchability or characterdevelopment I grew to love from the show.

Rewatching Season 1, and there is quite a few jokes I missed . Like in episode 3 where Jeff tricks Abed's dad and Brita into coming to talk things out. Ah. Such a good show.

Holy shit, what a good episode. I think that goes down as one of the best in the entire series.

Definitely one of the funniest. Just some amazing jokes.

This season is the best season, without a doubt.

Holy SHIT what a good episode. Like, it freaking directly addressed everything I talked about in my past post about the series being between ending and feeling the need to endlessly continue, and about it not being able to contain much more central conflict. What a goddamn beautiful way of addressing that. I can't wait for the pay-off of all this next episode. Harmon is kind of a genius for this.

So basically, you're saying that 1) the show wasn't the same and 2) the characters that drive the show were just shallow imitations of their past selves BUT 3) the criticism of season 4 was just people piling on hate for the sake of piling it on?


Season 4 had 3 good episodes by Community standards right at the end. I genuinely dislike that the show had to take this detour instead of staying on the track it would've been on had Harmon not been fired from his own show.

I just started watching season 4. WHY DID THEY CHANGE THE SHOWRUNNER????


I suppose I'll just have to suffer through it so season 5 will make sense.

I skipped season 4, 5 still made sense.
