Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I am displeased that this is the way it's going to be done. I was hoping that he would be in and out so that it wasn't that he was just gone. I understand that Donald Glover wants to focus on his Childish Gambino stuff, but I really wish it was more of the 5 episodes full time, then cameos or one scene an ep for the rest of the season.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Having a cameo is just too much. He only wants to do 5 and be done, and cameos filmed ahead of time wouldn't work out.

If they wanted to he was under contract. He was going to have another show but I don't think it got picked up, and the other show he could only have done if Community was canceled. This really should be the last season, just make him stay and end the show.

I have been checking out Glover's stuff. It's bloody weird seeing him perform such serious downbeat stuff.

Quite like some of it though.

Jonathan Banks (Mike from Breaking Bad) is joining the cast for 11 of the 13 episodes. He'll be playing a criminology professor.

Great! I thought you were going to say he was taking Chevy's spot in the study group, which would not have sucked. But regardlss of the part, I imagine Banks' dry delivery will be a very good fit.

John Oliver will be back as Professor Duncan according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Daily Show correspondent John Oliver will return to Greendale Community College for a multi-episode arc, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

If Jonathan Banks' performance on Community is anything like his performance as Sr Wyatt on Parks & Rec it'll be amazing.

Great to see John Oliver back.

I don't see any chemistry between Jeff and Abed, but all the other regular cast have chemistry with each other.
I think they could make an effort to have more scenes with Jeff and Abed, as there have been a lack of them. They certainly could have more chemistry if the opportunity arises.
The tricky thing about Jeff/Abed interactions is that Abed requires a bit more patience than most of the characters. And Jeff is so often defined by his complete lack of patience for other people. That's why it's been rare for there to be many Jeff/Abed episodes, or even Jeff/Abed scenes. (I'm thinking of the end of "Contemporary American Poultry," the end of "Critical Film Studies," "Introduction to Film," and the Jeff/Abed-in-Troy's-body stuff in "Basic Human Anatomy.")

Jim Rash was a great character until season 4 came along and they decided to make him an exaggerated predatorial gay steroetype. Hopefully Dan Harmon brings him back to the needy insecure litigiphobic bearaucrat who was also homosexual he was in the first three seasons.
I suspect "homosexual" is a gross oversimplification of Dean Pelton's orientation.

So he'll be in 5 out of 13 episodes. He couldn't work another 8 weeks (2 months) to finish off the season?
Yeah. It's kinda like Red Dwarf Series VII where Chris Barrie only did half the season. He only ended up being gone for 4 episodes, so what was the point of leaving?

A friend just asked me if there was any worthwhile episodes from season 4. They were a fan of the first 3 seasons, but didn't watch it this past season.

In my opinion, I'd say that "Conventions of Space and Time" (she's a Doctor Who fan), ""Herstory of Dance," and "Basic Human Anatomy" were pretty decent (not great, but decent).

I'm on the fence about "Heroic Origins" and "Advanced Introduction to Finality." On one hand, I'm a sucker for interconnected origins (yes, I loved Lost, in part for seeing how everyone was connected) and it was nice to see a continuation of the darkest timeline story. On the other hand, "Heroic Origins" seemed forced and "Advanced Introduction to Finality" killed the darkest timeline in a way that possibly ruins "Remedial Chaos Theory."
I really liked "Heroic Origins" & "Advanced Introduction to Finality." I don't think it kills the darkest timeline at all. I think it's just a sweet example of how Jeff has changed over the years. Old Jeff would never have gone quite so deeply into an elaborate fantasy like that. And the whole thing was just for Jeff's own mental benefit anyway.

I thought that Season 4 was mostly worth it. It was a little rocky for the 1st half. "Conventions of Space & Time" was really the only episode from the 1st half that's up to the quality of the 1st 3 seasons. "Alternative History of the German Invasion" was also OK. But I think the show found its groove again once it got to "Herstory of Dance." (Personal trivia: I'd never heard of Sophie B. Hawkins before this. Now, I made sure to buy one of her albums.) And "Basic Human Anatomy" is not only a funny episode but also has a great deal of heart to it.

I generally say good riddance to Pierce. He didn't really have anything to contribute to the show after Season 2. But, occasionally, I'd see brief glimpses of the Pierce I actually kinda liked from Season 1. I liked how he helped Britta in "Herstory of Dance." (Of course, just generally, I've been very annoyed with how they started turning Britta into the Meg of the show starting in Season 3.) I also liked that brief Pierce bit at the beginning of "Basic Human Anatomy."

PIERCE: "I've been told I look like a Kennedy."
JEFF: "That's a statement, not an idea."
[Later.]
PIERCE: "I've been told I look like a Kennedy."
JEFF: "Nope. Still just a random statement and still completely useless."

Have we ever seen any evidence in the show of him being attracted to women as well as men?

I agree there. They started to focus a lot more on the hypocritical elements of Britta's personality and forgot that in addition to those hypocritical elements she passionately believes what she's saying. She started out as a Lisa Simpson type and turned into a Fox News liberal stereotype.

I think the operative word was "oversimplification". He's not merely homosexual, he's something else entirely.

He likes manly men, however he might like manly women, but that is over simplifying it too.

The part I loved the most when the Dean thought he was Jeff was how Annie suddenly felt attracted to him (and then disgusted/horrified afterwards).
