Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Harmon himself has described Season 4 as "Watching people repeatedly rape your loved ones" (a bit of a paraphrase there) so I'm not surprised he's setting out to undo everything that happened in Season 4,

it's a fucking TV show.
Exactly. It's like I was kicking babies or something. Fuck. Is it some sort of fan purity test?
Indy basically just said he was surprised that people were surprised, because it had been mentioned before, and this is typically a very detail oriented show. He didn't say you were lesser fans or anything like that. The negativity was directed at him for expressing his surprise, not the other way around. You're blowing this way out of proportion and carrying it on far longer than is warranted.

Brooklyn Nine Nine is set in New York??? No way, I thought it was somewhere in the Midwest. Heh, you learn something every day.

I certainly could have expressed myself better, and more politely. I apologize for that, and for dragging the thread off topic.

I just finished 'Intro to Political Science" and I have to say Pierce mocking Vickie Jenkins during the debate was hilarious, in fact I had to pause the DVD cause I was literally laughing my ass off.

No, sorry. I don't buy that. I wrote one sentence to him in regards to searching out other material. And then he and Fandago jumped down my throat. If anything, I am not the only one blowing this out of proportion.

And if you feel I was busting your balls, I too apologize. That wasn't my intent.

Just like Lost, the show takes place in hell.

They all died just before the pilot started filming.

Could be interesting if Jeff Winger and Richard Castle have the same dad...

I've always thought it all takes place within Abed's mind, which in turn all takes place inside Tommy Westphall's now adult mind, in addition to his entire fictional universe. Abed is his avatar in the dream, and the rest of the study group represent different aspects of his inner personality which he is unable to share with others.

So I like seeking out Harmon's thoughts on Season 4 and I came across an interesting piece of information, seems Dan Harmon is going to ignore the fact that James Brolin was brought in as Jeff's dad and bring in someone else entirely. I'm thinking he's trying to undo everything that they did in Season 4.
I recall Harmon saying his dream-casting for Jeff's father would be Bill Murray. (Jeff being modeled just a little on Bill's Stripes character, John Winger.)

Fingers crossed.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Community is already inside Tommy's mind.

(The fictional) Lets Potato chips connects Community to Orange is the New Black and Arrested Development which had Munch in it from Homicide Life on the Street which connects to St Elsewhere.

How do you like them apples?

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I thought the ep with Jeff's dad was one of the better S4 episodes, but the way he made that speech about how he's not well adjusted was contrived and forced. The S4 writers seemed to seize on what Jeff confided to Abed in My Dinner With Andre and base his whole character on that sort of thing.
