Apparently Harmon was upset that he couldn't end the episode with "To Be Continued?" but I think it was fine as a closing episode if, as they cynics seem to think, this is it.

I still think NBC will stick to their promise to finish out the season, and that syndication will probably result in a fourth season being produced as well, unless NBC has a breakout comedy hit in the spring.
I think NBC will finish out the season, it might be much later in the spring, but, they will certainly show what they have filmed.

It took me a little while to warm up to this one, but I enjoyed it by the end. A sufficient conclusion if needed, but I do hope we get the rest of the season, and perhaps a fourth and final year (I know, I know...).

I believe this episode is the last one that has been filmed (so far), though, correct me if I'm wrong here. I'd be pleased if I knew more episodes had been finished, if only for the DVD (though I bet it will come back later in the spring, too).

I thought I read they had filmed more after this one, before the hiatus notification, but, I don't have a link. So, I could be wrong.

If anything, at the very least, I bet they would burn them off. BUT, I think it will be back. And I bet, there might be even a 4th season, which would be the last.

But that baby talk just stripped the sexy right out of the routine.

Eventually.
Which was the point, of course.
Yeah, I'll never hear the term "diminishing returns" in quite the same way ever again.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Yeah....I love this show but, the last few weeks have just been really dull, stupid, and nearly everyone has been acting out of character at some point.

Britta's phone gag in the Foozball ep was just pathetic. We've seen her use a regular modern-ish phone a million times before, and although this show does crazy stuff, it was always "grounded" in a reality. Yes, Paintball was grounded compared to Britta's shitty phone.

Noone seems to be growing anymore. They've spent most of the season acting out tropes from before, hitting catchphrases and such. The documentary ep was a rehash of the previous one, (It's even called "Documentary Film making: Redux"), Abed Batman was...Abed Batman, which as brilliant as it was the first time, the second time was just the same joke stretched out over half an episode. The glee club gag in "Paradigms of Human Memory" was funny as a cutaway. I found it damned near unbearable as an entire episode. I mean, the way they just came in at the end singing - seriously? That's Community? The characters have grown, sure. But would Jeff and Britta really come in blankly singing a Christmas hymn? It looked like everyone was stiff and wooden and just came in the room to hit they're marks. It was unnatural and felt incredibly forced. It would have been more in the tone of the group if Abed opened the door, Shirley started belting out a Christmas hymn and the rest just kinda grinned and came in with "Yay its Christmas!" half assed. The point of coming together because its Christmas was hackneyed and against the grain of the show. They should have come together because they like each other regardless of Christmas. This is what they've made a point of the last 2 years. That whole scene felt like a network note which they were forced to make at gun point.

And this whole weirdly meta thing about region-els (eh?) being code for "will we get canceled or not" was just...odd.

Blah. I love this show, I really do, but this yeah over all has just felt like a let down. Sure, we got Remedial Chaos Theory, which did everything a good episode should (progressed the story, the characters and the relationships while having a laugh a minute), "Were gonna finally be fine!", Air Conditioner repair school (Why is there an Astronaut in the corner making a paninis?) and authoritative Dean Pelton (I wish that lasted longer), but overall the ratio of good to bad seems off.

I wish I was sad at the prospect that this is the last ep, but considering how this series has progressed, I wouldn't be bothered that much by it being so. And that's probably what disappoints me the most.

I didn't really get that from the Regionals bit. That just felt like another Glee riff.

Re: Me so merry, me so merry!

My favorite thing about episodes like "Regional Holiday Music" is the way they'll parody something in a really obvious manner (Glee) and only as you watch do you realize that they are parodying a second, completely unrelated thing. (Body Snatchers.) The turning of the group one at a time, culminating in the awesome riff on the ending of Body Snatchers '78 really had me smirking the whole time. What can I say? I dig shows that appeal to the nerd in me and also have hot women being funny. Weird!

Probably one of the funniest episodes I've seen. I'm gonna miss this show.

Maybe Dan will thumb his nose, and accidentally hire back 90 percent of the cast for his next project?

Gods.

This is the Guy who made the Sarah Silverman Program.

Fuck me, he's mellowed.
