    The tag was great.

    Man why can people on Facepunch never just enjoy TV shows?
    Seriously, all anyone does on here is talk about "the good old days" when everything was supposedly so much better.
    With shows like Dexter where the quality did drop significantly it's perfectly understandable, but let's face it, not much has changed with Community. Sure a bit more drama has seeped in, but the humour style is the same and it's still perfectly entertaining.
    This half of the season got off to a rocky start with two episodes that didn't really feel "right", but the few after that have been perfectly fine Community episodes.
    this recent episode is exactly why I've been critical of the show in the past
    I liked the latest one a lot, and it really shows that community can stand up to a higher standard
    it makes the previous few episodes look pretty shallow in comparison
    it's healthy to be able to recognize and criticize the show when its not so good, and praise it when it really delivers, like this latest one

    I've noticed something about the good episodes vs. the worse episodes.
    The good episodes generally actually have something to do with the community college theme. It was a good idea and it worked well in the early seasons but then they tried to get away from it which kinda defeats the point of the show. This is the first episode in a long, long time that actually really used that theme again.

    chevy is boring anyway, he's only there to please the children who watch it, with his fart jokes and penis jokes. he's sometimes funny but he's there for younger audiences.

    That was a really odd episode, I'm not quite sure what to make of it really.

    I think its quality will really depend on how the next few episodes go, it seems that the remaining ones might all tie in together.

    So I know I'm super late but I've been working my way through Season 2

    I thought the zombie episode was brilliant. Then I got to the trampolene episode. Then I got to the episode about Troy's bday, which was a nice feel-good-but-still-funny break from the previous two. And then I just finished watching the christmas episode.

    Which was probably THE most brilliant piece of television I've ever seen. Seriously, hilarious. And very clever in writing/plot on that episode.

    Also the thing about community is that you can pop it in and watch it like a sitcom, as each episode is self-contained in plot (at least so far, not sure about season 3 as I don't have cable). But it (unlike other sitcoms) is still a continuous story so you might not understand why (for example in season 2) pierce is in a wheelchair without seeing the episode where he broke his legs. Or why certain characters act or say things to others in reference to a past event, or who certain characters are. I find it's pretty easy to follow just jumping in, but you just miss out a lot of the background unless you watch it from the start.

    Edited:

    the score actually fell to around the same as the others
    not sure why though, this episode was great
    That website is really stupid actually, because it has the same rating mentality that user reviews on metacritic have

    If you look, 70% of season 2 is rated the same way, despite being head over heels fucking amazing (so far) compaired to season 1 (I just got done with the xmas episode). Moral of the story, when you get a mass of people giving an episode 1/10 because "CLAYMATION IS STUPID AND FOR KIDS!!" you realize half the userbase for this website is a retard and really isn't the type of "intelligent" audience that Community appeals to the most. Not that there's a high level of intelligence required to like this show, but I'd say it caters to the educated individual more than the uneducated one, writing and thematic wise. If you're the type of person who is too dense to get references, or too out of touch of the various topics the show frequently discusses, you're not going to "get" it as much.

    Well it's gotten renewed for a 4th season.
    But of 13 episodes. Sort of strange since it was like 4 episodes shy of syndication.
    Maybe they will see how the new NBC lineup goes and extend it. Hopefully they will do the same for Parks & Recreation

    The struggling Peacock network is taking a new direction with its primetime lineup, and that means cleaning house. Until this week, the once-dominant network had been suspiciously mum on its plans for next season. That all changed with a giant info dump from NBC execs which included the fates of veteran sitcoms “30 Rock,” “Community” and “Parks and Recreation.”

    All three critical darlings will be given abbreviated “send off” seasons followed by immediate termination.

    That article is from 3 days ago and Community got renewed yesterday and they didn't say anything about a final season.
    The only show so far that is going into it's final season is 30 rock.
    Community and Parks & Rec are too critically acclaimed to cancel I think, considering most other things on the channel do far worse in ratings and acclaim.

    I miss the Season 1 Community, where it was all jokes and they didn't try to push the show in a darker, more dramatic direction.

    Lots of really good shows die out by changing their formula.

    But yes, many good sitcoms shows turn bad when they forget they're supposed to be funny and try to be dramatic.

    Yeah NBC would have to be staffed by complete retards to not see how much money Community's making them, so it wouldn't be completely cancelled.

    Also the fans would riot. As they have before when it went into mid-season pause

    I don't know...I'm still watching for some reason but I think it's more because I used to really laugh while watching this show as opposed to liking the episodes that have premiered this season. I mean, it's changed. It's really changed. You can see it if you watch this latest one before or after watching one from season one or early season two.

    With that in mind, I would be completely fine with one more season to wrap things up. Given what it started with, it deserves that much. But that's just how I see it.

    And they completely missed the point of having it on Thursdays, especially with an in canon date for the group to graduate. Unless they do something like a parody of the Hangover trying to remember the previous day, Thursday May 23rd 2013 is going to be ruined.
