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.
As others have said one season is one year.

More so because we had a Halloween episode this year and Shirley will give birth this season.

I'm fine with a show getting four seasons, I'm just happy we are getting a 3rd. Maybe they will get 100 episodes and end it.

Christ. Since when do TV shows last precisely as long as the premise logically allows?

It's an NBC show. It'll go 'til it gets cancelled and then it'll stop, and that will be decided by the network based on ratings not when they "graduate" or when they're out of stories or whatever.

Also, if you NEEEED to justify it, it'd community college. People can go to community college as long as they please, whether they're getting a degree or not. Doesn't matter. That's the point.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Yeah it's nothing to get worked up about, the question was simply brought up. I think the season finale will be truly something special to watch and that will also touch on lingering plot lines. For me I hope there is some kind of definitive resolution for Jeff and Annie, although I suspect this will continue to linger into season three. I know Jeff doesn't do committed relationships but I think the three of the them: Annie, Jeff, and Britta need some kind of separate relationship arcs.

Looking forward to tonight's episode, it's the "Pulp Fiction" homage episode and Abed's birthday.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Absolutely awesome episode!!! The question though I have is...was Jeff just narrating to us normally? Or was he narrating to someone?

The narration is part of the My Dinner with Andre thing: The movie begins with Wally Shawn's voice over as he goes to the restaurant and waits for Andre, and it ends with voice over in the now-empty restaurant.

Well, that was certainly different to what I was expecting, but still pretty great. I was expecting a laugh out loud piss take kinda ep like the Apollo 13 one, but instead it was a surprisingly touching homage to a film i've never even heard of :P

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

So.. I don't watch Cougar Town, but would we actually see Danny Pudi in the background of an episode this season? It sounds like something like they would try to do, and something that Bill Lawrence would allow even if Community is on a different network.

Only if he falls down in the background. Although that story was all a lie on Abeds part I think

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

OKay thanks for the explanation. I've heard of "Dinner with Andre" but have never seen it. This wasn't what I was expecting either but was still fantastic. A subdued Chang again this week which is always a good thing. Britta getting fired was interesting...I'm seriously looking forward to the finale! Woot. BEST SHOW EVAH!!

THey've done a few episodes this season that went easy on the laughs (Troy's birthday, the Chistmas episode, and now Abed's birthday), and I've loved all of them. This show can make me laugh better than just about any other show I'm watching, but I love how good it can be even when they set that aside.

Like I've said before, the best episodes of the show are when the show deals with the group.
