Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

This show is a mess, for every decent / good episode there are 2-3 horrible ones.

Tonight's wasn't funny at all!


Kelly Jacobs was on The Late Late Show and Craig is like "The wonderful Community that NBC treats like fucking shit".

That's funnier than the show.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I really disagree, I thought this episode was pretty damn good, at least compared to the rest of the season so far. Both plots actually worked; the Jeff's Dad stuff came together well at the end (Jeff's half-brother was a bit eh but provided a couple funny bits with Britta) and I found the 'Shawshank' plot playing on how crazy 'meta' (thanks Pierce!) Community can get hilarious. Oh Abed!

The daily show last night that were talking about pope stuff, and one of the reporters couldn't get his lingo straight...

"That thing with the wine and crackers?"

"Communion?"

"No, that thing with the wine and crackers!"

"Communion!"

"No not the Joel McHale show, that thing with the wine and crackers!"

It's Always Sunny... did a Die Hard episode. I won't be that upset if Community doesn't, especially because in the current state of the show I'll probably be disappointed.

^ If they do and it does, there's always Chuck's Die Hard ep to fall back on as well.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I don't know how. This basically took the worst aspects of Community and combined them with the worst clichés of sitcoms to produce the one episode this season I actually hated, it was that bad. Even the Hunger Deans I just found boring.

Plus, I'm pretty sure this is the ep that lead to Chevy saying the N-Word on set. The shit he was given to do was fucking awful.

And fucking Chang! Seriously.

I agree. I'm never on Chevy side, but this episode was insane. It just felt like a retread of all kinds of bad.

Just get rid of Chang! He isnt needed, save the money.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Strange that up to this point, I was wondering if I was even going to keep watching the show, the season had been so unfunny.

But I laughed the most with this one. It felt the least forced to me, opposed to the other episodes which seemed to try way too hard to be different in that great way Community often excelled at.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

It's wierd how interest in Community has dropped so much this season. I wouldn't call the show BAD, but somehow it's no longer GREAT. Just can't nail specific reasons down though - all the individual elements feel like Community and should be hilarious, but somehow it's just not adding up IMO. I'll finish off the season for sure.

In related news, here's an almost two-hour podcast of "Improv Nerd with Jimmy Carrane", featuring Dan Harmon. The show is generally about improv theatre stuff, but naturally with Dan Harmon on the show (he has a large improv history, which I didn't know) it's mostly about Community. He goes on at great length on the show, starting with his removal from it. A long, but good listen for insight into the show. Especially if you're into improv like me.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I thought "Herstory of Dance" was pretty good. On par with some of the lesser episodes from previous seasons. What struck me though, is with this one and last one, they are making Pierce likable. Last week, Jeff actually felt bad for how he treated Pierce and this week, Pierce came to the rescue.

I'm debating that. Last week's episode is still sitting on the DVR. I just... meh. It feels like a hollow version, everyone is going through the motions.

Eh. I think I'll stop. It's not like it's coming back.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I have no interest in watching the episodes, they no longer have heart or meaning, they are just flat.
