There's a few season 4 episodes I haven't seen yet. Are you jealous of me?

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

So I'm watching the pilot of Rick & Morty.

It's funny and all, it kind of reminds me of why Family Guy used to be funny a long time ago. But I'm not sure I can aesthetically get past the green vomit spittle perpetually on Rick's lower lip.

Rick gets toned down a bit in that respect after a couple of episodes. Keep watchin.

Yep. Season 4 was obviously not as good as the others, but it was far from terrible. Community at it's worst was still better than most other shows at their best.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Yeah, but most network sitcoms are borderline unwatchable at their best.

Community even when it gets silly is emotionally sincere, and season 4 didn't have that for the most part.

So I saw one episode, it was on some kind of space station with a holodeck or something like that (David Cross did a voice). I wonder if that wasn't really a good episode to start with, because it came across as disturbing. So then I went and looked up the original pilot or source, and it amped up the disturbing factor to +11. So, did I just get a bad impression of this show?

Stick with it.

As clever as is disgusting.

Season one is 11 episodes.

Effortless.

And it might not even get renewed.

I hate most network sitcoms so I'm with you that saying "[x] is better than 90% of what's on TV" is a poor defense of anything (see, e.g., the past ten years of Simpsons).

That being said, while I didn't love Season 4, I found it mostly enjoyable.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

The 1st half of Season 4 was kinda crappy (apart from "Conventions of Space & Time"). But I loved the 2nd half of it, from about "Herstory of Dance" onwards. In particular, "Basic Human Anatomy" would definately be on my list of all-time favorites.

"Routine light switch check."
"That is not a thing!"

I'm trying to think what my top 10 favorites would be. It's kinda hard to judge accurately sometimes because it's so hard to compare the extreme wackiness of Season 3, where practically every single episode was a pastiche of something, vs. Season 1, when it was largely just a more-pop-culture-savvy-than-usual single-camera sitcom. Probably:

1. "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons"
2. "Digital Estate Planning"
3. "Basic Lupine Urology"
4. "Pillows & Blankets"
5. "Basic Human Anatomy"
6. "Regional Holiday Music"
7. "Remedial Chaos Theory"
8. "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps"
9. "Modern Warfare"
10. "Introduction to Finality" (mostly for Troy's duel in the Sun Chamber.)

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

And even then, I feel really bad for leaving out some other great treasures, like "Accounting for Lawyers," "Basic Rocket Science," "Cooperative Caligraphy," "Conspiracy Theories & Interior Design," "Celbrity Pharmacology," "Paradigms of Human Memory," "Geography of Global Conflict," "Studies in Modern Movement," "Documentary Filmmaking: Redux" (so much funner if you've actually seen Hears of Darkness)... [Trails off because I realized I'm about to name nearly half of the entire series!]

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

^I've been trying to do the same thing, and keep running into the same problem. The show just has such a high percentage of good-to-great episodes, that whittling it down to a top ten is really hard. I know "Cooperative Calligraphy", "Contemporary American Poultry", "Paradigms Of Human Memory", "Remedial Chaos Theory" and "Basic Rocket Science" all rank very high on my list, but picking favorites is actually really difficult.

^ I have the back half of season four and most of this past season to still get through, so quite a number before I complete the show.

Hulu to the rescue?....

http://tvline.com/2014/05/28/community-season-6-hulu/

Honestly the cast probably wants to move on, it ended in a decent place and the guy from Breaking Bad is doing the prequel, and he was a highlight on the past season.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

It's just rumors now, but it's still a sign that there's some interest in the series continuing. I've made my peace with the show ending if it absolutely has to, but if there's some way to snatch it from the jaws of cancellation one more time, I'm all for it.
