Not Everyone is Thrilled About COMMUNITY’s Renewal

Opinions. Everybody’s got ’em. To us, they seem a lot like Sam Goldwyn’s opinion of verbal contracts: “They’re not worth the paper they’re printed on.”

Wonder what Dan Harmon thinks. Anyway:

Community is renewed, so why am I not flipping-out happy?
by Keith McDuffee

This past season of ‘Community’ was not a shining example of what I’d come to love for three seasons. Will the show’s renewal bring with it the Dan Harmon-like fun it used to have?

The answer to that last question is: probably not.

I know there are a lot of die-hard Community fans out there who believe their beloved show can do no wrong. We have a few at CliqueClack HQ, in fact; I’ve seen the sub-Reddit dedicated to the show too. The fact of the matter is, this season sucked — at least in comparison to previous seasons — and unless it decides to make a significant shift in its writing style, I’m out next season.

What happened to stand-out episodes like the first Halloween episodes? The first paintball episode? Advanced Dungeons and Dragons? The blanket/pillow fort war? What do these all have in common? They didn’t happen in season four. Can you name any that even come close to these gems from season four? I didn’t think so.
