Indeed. It's still disappointing though.
I Agree, given how much of the TV landscape is a steaming pile of [Expletive] it really bugs me that one of the funniest comedies of the last 30 years probably won't make it to 5 years.

Yeah, it doesn't look good. My pie in the sky hope has been recently that the show will get picked up by a cable network and that they bring Dan Harmon back to run it.
NBC doesn't own the show, Sony does. If NBC chooses to can it, Sony will still be in charge of Dan Harmon being picked up/not picked up.

Hence why it's a pie in the sky hope.

Not necessarily. An L.A.Times article today stated that NBC was at this time undecided as to the futures of two of it's Thursday sit coms with young skewing, passionate followings; Parks and Recs and Community. The article acknowleges the 2 shows ratings challenges.

I had a feeling NBC wasn't completly sold on the show's demise. Why fire the showrunner on a show you know is getting only one final season? But to be honest, they might also have been worried about legal trouble from Chase if Harmon had returned.

To have Community come back at this point would be even more satisfying ("most" satisfying, would be Harmon's unlikly return) because Chevy would be gone. There is at least some hope.

It was brought back as a mid-season replacement, essentially. If other shows on NBC had done better, Community would've been burned off in the summer. They had contracts with the actors, who would've had to been paid regardless, so why not have these episodes ready to go? And if the new show runners could turn the ratings around....

Basically if Animal Practice had been a hit--lol--Community wouldn't be on right now.

I liked Bobby Lee in Animal Practice. But not much else.

Yes, however, the Times article indicated that it, along with Parks and Rec, are "bubble" shows. My point was that now that Community is back on the air, it does at least have a chance of being renewed. In other words, the show's fate has not yet been determined, at least according to the Times article yesterday.

So we shall see.

It might be interesting, that if they can't do the ott Harmon episodes to just go back to the more normal; attend classes, study, learn vague moral message style episodes of season one. I think without Harmon they will struggle if they try and top the paintball computer game ideas of previous series. Overall it's not been bad so far, but not the best either.

Matt Lucas was really good in this episode, I suppose he is pretty much unknown in the US, but I have been a longtime fan of his.
I watched the 1st season of Little Britain. I also recognized him as Tweedledee & Tweedledum in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and as Thenardier in the 25th anniversary concert of Les Miserables.

Since Cougar Town got moved from ABC to TBS, I've had some similar hopes for Community as well. I'm sure Abed & Annie would approve.

Last night's episode was probably best of the year.

I did actually enjoy this one more than the others we've seen so far, and I don't want to be nit-picky, but here's my problem with it: when they flashed back to previous examples of the study group being rude - and, in keeping with what's worked for the show before, they should have chosen examples from episodes we've never seen - they picked terrible examples.

Cooperative Calligraphy: When they were the only people left in the school while everyone else was at the Puppy Parade?

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: When the group went out of their comfort zone to stop Fat Neil from killing himself?

That is true, they should have done clips from never talked about episodes.

Starring Abeb from Community and others, 4 to 5 minute skits about surreal happenings that are parallel to the chosen book of the book Club each week.

Funny and short.

Almost no commitment and this could have held us over during the down time while waiting for new episodes of Community, but no one bothered to keep me in the loop.

(I'm not involved in the project, this is not soliciting.)
