Finally saw the season finale. Pretty much a meh for me. It felt like it was out of order of the other stuff. The Chang stuff felt much more climatic.

In the pilot Jeff made a speech about how truth was what ever he wanted it to be if he could talk long enough.

Book ends.

I watched them out or order.

The last one I watched was the video game ep. I felt so sorry for P's brother. - He sat on me once in church so that he could see better.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I got a chance to catch up and see the finale and thought it was decent. It would seem that Sci was right on the money regarding the Dreamatorium. I'm starting to pull for Britta and Troy now. I've given up on any chance of Annie and Jeff. It could be as someone mentioned prior that they're just teasing the tropes of relationships and not really planning on realizing them.

Dan Harmon teased at those tropes. But I suspect the new showrunners and writing staff will fall back on the typical relationship stuff that comedies always get into, and that suddenly our characters will start hooking up in season four. It is a standard writers crutch after all.

Great. If this show starts actually using the TV tropes that the past three seasons have merely joked about, then it for sure is going down the tubes.

For example, the reason the bottle show was funny was because it was very obvious about being a bottle show.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Some of the writers, including Megan Ganz (who is credited with writing the bottle episode) and Andy Bobrow are returning, so some of the old Community spirit will carry over into season 4. Hopefully it will be enough to prevent the show from becoming a generic sitcom, and it may just return to the relative normalcy of season 1.

I'm not sure you can put that toothpaste back in the tube. It would be nice though. As much as I still enjoy the show, it lost the spark of greatness (to me) somewhere around the Zombie episode and has only occasionally found it since. It has been practically(and sometimes literally) a cartoon more often than not since then.

Of course, it could get even worse, but as far as I'm concerned, the damage is done, no harm in trying.
Don't you mean "no Harmon trying"?

I would love to see Karen on Community!
I have this image of her showing up as an even more Asperger-y love interest for Abed. (Perhaps she's the real world manifestation of his girlfriend from the video game.)

I don't actually remember writing the above, but you should be gaoled for what happened below.

It wasn't me, it's a quote from M'rk, son of Mogh, still you should be gaoled.

Community characters as superheroes!

They're all pretty great, but I think my favorite one has Pierce as Ted Kord Blue Beetle, Abed as Martian Manhunter, Jeff as Booster Gold, and Troy as Green Lantern. I agree with one of the commenters - I could actually hear that dialogue in my head in the actors' voices.

The second one - with Britta as Batgirl and Annie as Batwoman - seems like the roles should be reversed, at least based on the characters' respective ages.

I also like the recurring joke that Troy wanted to be, or should've shown up as, Spider-Man. Although I am looking forward to seeing Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, I still kind of wish Donald Glover had been cast as Spider-Man...
