Default [TV Show] Community


Just watched season 1 (yeah, it took me years to finally do it) and I gotta say it's a relief seeing an amusing sitcom when most of the current ones are awfully formulaic (and overrated). Too bad Community certainly will be axed at the end of season 3, considering NBC axed Scrubs w/o reason before.

Discuss.

As a rule of thumb, the best shows get canceled. I have very little faith in people who watch television. I'm moderately surprised Community has lasted 3 seasons.

Yeah, most of them don't get past the first season. Just watched season 2 premiere and I gotta say it's the best episode so far. The best of all is that @oldwhitemansays actually exists on Twitter (to think they just made it to mock another sitcom is great).

When you do, make sure to watch the third episode a second time and pay attention to the background (particularly when Abed is absent). The hidden story is interesting as well.

Absolutely loved the show, started watching rather recently myself.
Too bad it's on hiatus right now.

I just recently started watching the show and consumed all 3 season very fast. One of the best sitcoms for me, but I suppose it's not half as funny if you don't get all the movie-/tv-references. I guess that's why it doesn't have the attention it deserves.

pretty much this

just recently watched it, even though I didn't get all the references, it's still a great show

that Advanced D&D episode is quite hillarious imo

It's back and it was awesome. Troy and Abed being normal was the best thing I've seen this week.

They acting normal was a bit disturbing. Jeff and Britta drunken rage on the rehersal was awesome too.

[edit]Just found this video while surfing on the interwebs.



If you don't remember what it is about, check the season 2 episode "Paradigms of the Human Memory". The reference to this video WAS intended, including the usage of the same song and the slo-mo. Can't beat the Abed/Pierce ship moment after it though.

And yeah, Community IS that awesome.[/edit]

Lol good episode.
The return of evil Abed was just awesome
and Britta + Jeff are great as always. Definitely my favorite character pairing.
Am I the only one thinks the father of the kid who had the Bar Mitzah looks like a skinny Gabe Newell?

I just found out that you can actually see Annie's Boobs (the monkey) stealing Annie's pen in the beginning of the episode 8 of season 2 (Cooperative Calligraphy).



It's between 0:01 and 0:02 on the corner of the table. But it's just one easter egg between several. Those guys are detail freaks.

Changlourious Basterds. Like Inglourious Basterds, but with Chang instead of In. I don't get it either.

Did anyone think tonight's episode felt incomplete? At the end they start talking about lessons they've learned, only there doesn't seem to be any connection to what happened in the episode. It's like they filmed Dan Harmon's first draft.

Last night's episode was a pretty good riff on the Shutter Island idea. Pretty excited to hear about the return.

Alison Brie is kinda hot in this one (although her character too childish at times)

Sony Pictures will have a lot to answer for if season 4 fails

The end of season 3 was awesome, but it looks pretty hopeless for next season. Move the show to Friday, cut the order from 22 to 13 and fire the creator. They totally aren't trying to kill Community.

I always find it sad when a format is taken away from its creator that was a part of making it successful.

True. The chance of this going bad is quite significant.

While the next season's not up, let's post Community-related stuff



Chevy Chase is awesome.

Newsflash: Chevy Chase is out of Community. Apparently he didn't stop his arguments with the writers of the show and had to consider leaving for good. Again, he fucked up his own career.

Chevy Chase is actually fucked in the head. The show is probably done after this season, and he wouldn't finish the last handful of episodes? It's the funniest thing he's done since the 80s, and he'd rather stand in the unemployment line.

He didn't recognise the comedic value of the series. And he failed to see he was in the right place when he didn't notice that most critics were praising the show development.
Too bad he took so long to be booted. If it was earlier, maybe Dan Harmon would be still in. Not saying the show can't succeed without him, but past all his issues with authority, self-hatred and interpersonal skills, he had the true objective of the show right in his mind all along.

Very relevant to the discussion http://www.uproxx.com/tv/2012/08/dan...ns-reddit-ama/

Particularly interesting is the answer to the question "Could you give us the speech you give new writers you hire?" on page 3.
