He's right about Rick & Morty. I like Community, but I LOVE Rick & Morty. His energy is better spent on that, than trying to bring back a show that already had its second and third chances.

Absolutely brilliant response from Harmon. Yes, if you have not checked out Rick and Morty, I highly recommend.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Was that meant to be making fun of fans who tweet about every bad episode? I assumed it was some specific trend for some episode people vocally hated, because I don't follow Twitter.

He's speaking about the episode you hated. Not the general "you" of the whole audience, but the specific "you", ie, you. He's talking directly to you, and apologizing for that one episode you didn't like.

It's like when someone says "Hey, how about that local sports team?"

I think he was referring to just about any episode that any of the fans disliked, not exclusive to the Twitter-verse or any specific episode. The guy is really funny.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Heh, I assumed it was some kind of Twitterverse reference.

Well, at least he apologized for the Troy's grandmother episode. Britta letting an old woman spank her to prove how culturally tolerant she is sounds like a cool idea in principle, but on screen it just doesn't work. Also notice Abed's father never appeared again after the episode.

^That episode features one of my favorite moments in the entire series: "I don't understand you, Britta! I don't understand you at all!"

I have rarely laughed at any sitcom as hard as I laughed at that.

Joel on the soup tonight... "Hello everyone and welcome to a new episode of Community... No, wait that's not right?"

10 minutes later... "And they're exaggerating, there isn't such a horrible stigma attached to the E! network, why I'm on a great show on another network and E! hasn't dragged down my credibility... Oh, that's right."

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Personally, I can't get too worked up over this cancellation. While the show continues to surprise and pleasure me in various ways, I knew from the outset that this day would come. And, honestly, it came 2 years later than I expected and 4 years later than any of us had any right to hope.

What can I say? After the agony of Wonderfalls' cancellation, I feel like any show is insanely blessed to last more than 4 episodes.

If it weren't for that scene, I might never have watched the show at all. My first introduction to the show was a random Youtube video of a bunch of different scenes of Troy crying. The image of this blonde woman being whipped in the ass by an elderly black woman while the guy from Mystery Team can't stop crying, totally divorced from any context, immediately stood out in my mind. I knew right then and there that I had to watch this show if only to find out what the hell was going on in that scene!

Yeah. Joss Whedon did a similar thing in the liner notes of one of the Buffy DVDs. Something like, "We hope you enjoy these 21 great episodes. And that 1 crappy one. Sorry. I don't know what we where thinking. I guess we were tired."

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I might as well toss my two cents in...I'm not shocked by the cancellation as this has seemed inevitable for at least the past two seasons. I still remember being drawn to the series in the first place by the season one finale...and was just pulled into the show with the Annie/Jeff/Britta triangle tease. Then I soon realized just what a brilliant show this was and what Harmon and his writers were doing with it.

I have fallen behind in my viewing...will catch up in the summer...it kind of started off as a summer catch up show for me in the first place.

Have enjoyed the discussion over the years with you guys...even the Britta'ing parts...even though I've not always participated on a regular basis. This was unique and special show to me. Apologies for the sappy post but I felt like posting something.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I first saw the pilot when it aired but then I didn't come back to it again until the start of the second run. During the episode I actually thought they were adding the Jack Black character to the cast and rolling my eyes, then when it turned out it was really a parody of shows that add 'The new wacky character' to the formula the show won me over forever.

And then the paintball episode came along and all bets were off.

Paintball, Blanket Fort, and L&O episodes were some of the best comedy of all time.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

The episode that got me interested was the Halloween Zombie episode. I had not even sampled the show before that mainly because I so despised Chevy Chase. I had wonered why this rather obscure sitcom had a thread that popped up on the first page here so regularly. Then I knew, this was something really differnt.

Troy's 21st birthday episode with Annie creating a personality to match the girl on her fake I.D. drew me in further and the paintball episode cemented it. The Ken Burnsian blanket/pillow war dosumentary, the Law and Order episode...pure genius.

Not only was it a true valentine to the nerd community, it was the was the most unique sitcom since Seinfeld.
