Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

"Basic Human Anatomy" was written by Jim Rash and it showed. This might have been the first great episode of the fourth season, even better than "Herstory of Dance." It felt like a previous season episode, moreso first and second, than third. Seeing the Dean act as Jeff was great, but seeing Annie become more and more attracted to him was great. I was a little worried about the credits scene, but I loved how they made it into a "Troy and Abed" pretending to do outtakes (with the Dean joining in), versus actual outttakes.

Agreed, this episode was easily the best of the season and restored some of my faith in the show after several weeks of awkward outings. It was weird and outlandish, but with solid character work and a good emotional ending. I wouldn't say that it was one of the best episodes ever, but it was solidly in the "good" category.

Surprised they didn't do a callback to when Jeff played the Dean in the Greendale video. McHale did a great Rash impression in that one.

Finally, a GREAT episode (probably giving it high praise since I really haven't found anything particularly good this season).

Oddly, Abed I found to be the weakest link of the bunch in this one, but I enjoyed it and laughed through most of the episode, which is what counts. I was totally impressed by Rash's acting as Jeff, very well done.

Probably too little, too late, but at least there's been 1 gem in the season.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Definitely the most 'Old Community' episode of New Community.

I really hate the direction they took the Dean this season. Before he was this quirky incompetent administrator who happened to be homosexual. Now he's, well, Mr Garrison. And his obsessive lusting over Jeff is annoying. His stalker-homosexuality is the only thing about his character now.

Well, that was it. And it sucked.

I can't recall a single other episode of Community that wasn't real, i.e. didn't happen in a dream sequence (and that includes the Claymation and Puppet episodes). I feel cheated that that's the direction they took for the finale.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

It's definitely not how I would have handled a possible-finale. I don't think the evil timeline shouldn't be confirmed as being real or not, so when the evil characters showed up it was too out there for my tastes. Then it was revealed to be a dream, for which I was both thankful and disappointed by, because dream episodes are lame. If this was the end then it would have been a poor way to go.

But it looks like it's not going to be the end, insiders are saying that the show is about to be picked up for a a fifth season of 13 episodes.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

My series finale will always be the season 3 finale.

Season 4 of Community is like Season 9 of Stargate. How Moebius is the real ending, and then extra stuff happened after.

You know how in Goedel Escher Bach, they proposed that a novel have a real ending at a random point in the book, then the rest of the book be filled with a bunch of random events?

That's season 4 of Community.

And what the hell happened to John Oliver?

Well, it seems that last nights episode was NOT the series finale. NBC has just announced that they are renewing COMMUNITY for next season!

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Still, it was a poor episode for a 4th year of a four year community college finale. Only two graduated? The episode had a fun idea, take paint ball to the next level, but like the puppet episode it just didn't do it right.

Side note, what is Troy's major, or any of the characters? I can't remember.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Troy got guilted/duped into Air Conditioning School a while back. He mentioned it in the finale.

Annie is doing criminology, or some parody of criminology offered by Greendale.

Britta is a psychology major.

I'm not sure but since Shirley has always been talking about running small business, then a small business degree is probably what she was on top of.

So, it's been renewed.

I just wish they could get Dan Harmon back.

I remember him being a god of AC fixing and the murder of the dean of the school, but I thought the whole thing was dropped. I wish that was more of a storyline for the 4th season.
