MASH had a single episode following a season of Baseball that lasted a year.

We saw the seasons change during the story.

^ I remember that. To me I just pretend that MASH episode fits into several seasons of the show, and is kid of a "look back".

If you ever come across it again message me, I'd love to see that. If the show is good who cares what they do. I would be fine if they even said the war lasted 12 seasons in the MASH universe.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I really hate the way they retooled Brita this season.

Obsessively political Brita was good-annoying.
Obsessive incompetent therapist Brita is bad-annoying.

All the characters are really starting to feel like toned down versions of themselves.

Britta was an incompetent therapist last season, too.

Yeah, I think we are grasping at straws to complain about the new leadership.

She's the AT&T of people.

She's the opposite of Batman.

'The show isn't funny' is a very valid reason not to like a comedy show.

Yeah Britta is a tool, but she used to be a recognizable, entertaining tool.

That's not what you said a few hours ago, that's something completely different.

You said Brita was annoying, it's Brita. She is actually the one that feels more like past seasons.

The show isn't as funny, it feels the same minus the funny. But Brita is still annoying, she has always been.

But the new season does feel like they Brita-ed up a lot of the fun.

But Brita isn't the SAME annoying Brita. This one babels. She never babbled. It's weird.

And I wonder how many of the episodes create some reason for minimal contact between Pierce and the rest of the cast?

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I definitely liked this episode more than last week's. I thought Britta was pretty much the same as last season too. And she did play the incompetent therapist in a few of the episodes last season. One of my favorite parts of the show in the past have been the verbal sparring between Jeff and Britta. We got a little of that last night and I thought it wasn't bad, but was still not up to some of their best dust ups in the past. In any case, Britta is looking mighty fine this season.

They definitely appear to be isolating Peirce from the rest of the characters.

Troy is a virgin? I didn't know that.

I kinda wish I wasn't even aware of the change in the showrunner. It is little like being spoiled. I wonder if Dan Harmon has seen the first two eisodes? I would LOVE to hear his reviews.
