    I maintain their best move would be to recast him with someone like Bill Murray and only have Abed notice the difference.

    They want to focus on promoting other shows? That's one of the stupidest things I've heard, made worse by the fact I've already seen a promo for Community and Whitney premiering on Oct. 19!

    Replacing Chevy Chase with another actor with only Abed noticing sounds hilarious and awesome.

    "I'm a long time viewer, sometime co-host."

    Sigh. Screw you NBC. Screw you.

    Joel's comment about it on The Soup was kind of funny.

    Yep.

    That may be what Chase is trying to do: get himself fired.

    OTOH, has anyone considered that the man is 70 years old and maybe some of this behavior is early onset Alzheimer's?

    I'd prefer to assume that he's just a fucking asshole.

    I know that. I was speculating more on the idea that senility might be making things worse/harder to hide.

    I really like Bloopers/Gag Reels of shows because they are mostly very funny and they show the actors how they really are as persons.. no acting, just their personality.

    Naturally i've seen the Community Gag Reels (search for them on Youtube, they're really funny) and what struck me is how awkward Chevy seemed sometimes with the rest of the cast. Especially the later ones from season 3 you could sense that the others are not always comfortable with him as they are with each other.. it doesn't seem they are as close with him as they are with each other.

    Maybe it's the generation gap but maybe it's also his attitude on set that sets him apart and making him less integrated than the rest.

    I always wondered how the cast really feels about him but kudos to them they remained above it all and didn't start badmouthing him (maybe that starts once the show officially ends and they don't have to work with him anymore).

    However, if i were the showrunner, i'd start looking into ways of either letting him go or replacing him. Nobody watches the show for Chevy Chase and he's become increasingly more difficult to work with for less benefit.. storywise i wouldn't miss his character at all.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    I watched season one yesterday. I was amazed by how bad the cinematography was in the beginning. The camera crew had no idea how to get their shots for the first 5 episodes. I know there was a learning curve, but it's just daunting to accept that Community wasn't absolutely perfect from it's first steps. Then I had to wonder, did it get "better" or had I acclimatized?

    A nice way to spend a Sunday never the less.
