Decent episode this week. I agree too much Chang, and I'm really not interested in Shirley's storyline either. Really, I'd be happy if the whole series was just about Troy and Abed. Best bromance on tv.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

When it comes right down to it the show is basically about Troy and Abed's antics and what's going on between Jeff, Britta, and Annie. Pearce is comic fodder and Shirley seems to have her own separate thing. The show is best when all of these aspects come together.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Anyone else think the 3rd series is gonna be the last? I mean, I think they only "need" to be in Community College for 3 years, and I can't think of a feasible reason for them to hang around.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I think that it's a likely possibility. I can't imagine them milking the show past a fourth season, and of course it will probably depend if the ratings plummet. I really wish "Community" was promoted better on NBC.

Jeff mentioned that he was taking a four year degree and that he screwed up his strict four-year-plan by taking that second class with the study group.

Full-time community college degrees usually take two years with an associate's degree given at the end. It's only more recently that some community colleges have started giving out full-time four-year bachelor's degrees.

Edit: Also, I think season 2 only corresponds with the second semester rather than the second year. That pattern would leave the show as finishing in 8 or 9 seasons.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

^ This is why I think they could push it to a fourth season. If they wanted to...they could do a one year after Community college type season where we follow where everyone has gone. That could be interesting.

I added an edit in which I mentioned that each season appears to correspond with a semester rather than a school year. That would mean 4 school years would equal 8 seasons. Though, it sounds like Jeff might need an extra semester or two to graduate. I could see the registration system forcing everybody to stay in school for 9 or 10 semesters (meaning 9 or 10 seasons).

Nope. Show's taking place in real time, such as it is.

That's how everyone ended up in Anthropology in Season 2, because they'd already done two semesters of Spanish and completed their language requirement in Season 1.

And they've been pretty explicit about holidays, we've seen 2 Halloween episodes already.

Okay, that would mean four or five seasons would be needed for Jeff to graduate. Their registration system seems pretty terrible, so I could see it going for five seasons.

Edit: Though, they always have the option of slowing down to one season per semester should they really want to continue for a bit longer.
