Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

it's been okay so far... troy and pierce have gotten better so far. i'd like to see more jeff goodman or have omar doing omar stuff... those two characters seem ripe for abed stories...

chang... really, i wish he'd just be written off. season 2 did a lot of damage to the character. making him a security guard doesnt really put him in an authoritative position (at least not the way they have portrayed the security guards there), and any authority is greatly undermined when they cut away to deal with his very sad, very pathetic personal life. Dump Chang and bring back Professor Duncan.

Yeah, Chang either needs to go back to being a professor or go altogether. I really never understood why the group didn't just take second year Spanish and keep him around that way...or have him turn out to be the anthropology professor also.

^ That would have actually made sense. I've never been a fan of the character and they seem to be doing their damnest to make us like him.

I thought he was very funny as the obnoxious and hateful Spanish teacher who bullied students. But not as the meek and sorrowful failure who begs to pal around with students.

Yeah. They've done a good job of making Chang a pathetic and unsympathetic character. Knowing the show though...maybe that's their point with him?

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I love community, I really really do. Having said that though, the first 3 episodes of this season have been really disappointing. Not completely devoid of humor mind you, they've had a few funny bits, but overall the episodes have not been solid like they have been in the past. The dynamic seems to have been fudged around with somewhat but I can't put my finger on what exactly has changed.

Also, no biology rap? The fuck?!!?!

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Britta and Jeff have changed because of their messing about last year. Pierce's hijinks disrupted the group. Shirley is a mom now. Troy and Abed are roomies! Troy and Britta were hinted at having some kind of antagonistic romantic tension between them. Annie kissed Abed spontaneously and we have Chang trying to insert himself into the group with annoying after annoying antics. Not to mention Jeff and Annie being unresolved. There group dynamic has evolved and changed, become more chaotic as things have progressed. Basically complications have crept up. They're not just simply "friends" in a study group any more.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

As a ELGO fan I loved the whole part with the Bio teacher talking about what happened to basic LEGOs.

However I have high standards for Community and so far it's not living up to it.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I've been watching this show over the last few weeks and I feel that there's something important I must point out: I am not laughing at Magnitude, I'm laughing with Magnitude. He is simultaneously the stupidest and best character on the show. Keep on pop-popping.

I don't have high standards for Community, it's a reasonably solid show with some great episodes thrown into the mix, and season 3 has so far been about what I expect from the show. I actually thought that the most recent episode was quite good, and I think that Todd was great.

But my opinions are apparently weird because I absolutely hated Chang when he was in a position of authority in season 1 and absolutely loved him as a pathetic nobody in season 2.

I for one liked Chang's 40s detective plot in the third episode. Once again we get to see how toxic and petty the group is at times. Felt sorry for Todd having to deal with those douche bags.

Rewatching season 1 at the moment and it seems a bit odd that Troy and Abed are doing Biology 101 when they were attending a biology class in their first semester, and Troy possibly for second semester depending on whether his attending biology was a lie as well with his fake valentine in "Communications Studies".

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

The thing that I find interesting about the characters is that they don't really act at times like friends do. They come through for each other during extreme situations sure, but they act more like a study group than a group of friends. Troy and Abed are probably the only example of true friends in their group. Not explaining myself well here but I guess what I'm trying to say is that they use the status of being a study group as a kind of safety blanket to "protect" themselves when things do spiral out of control. Friends is an entirely different connotation altogether.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Tonight was an interesting episode. We got some more Jeff and Annie teasing although given the nature of the episode it's just teasing. Also a Chang-less episode!
