Andy Greenwald on the return of NBC's 'Community' - Grantland

Not exactly an encouraging read.

Weird article. The first half he comes off as someone who watched the show despite hating it and its idiosyncrasies, and then the second half he is lamenting that the best show ever has become normal.

I'll reserve all judgement till I've watched the episodes myself. Still really excited.

*Shrugs* Taking the "wait and see" approach. I would imagine all the drama of the last year or so surrounding the show would likely have some impact on how some of the episodes play out and come off-if there are moments of lifelessness or whatever, that's probably a big part of why. And I think everyone's pretty well aware that the show will not resemble the one that existed under Harmon's rule-if someone hasn't accepted that yet, then they might want to do so pretty quickly.

But given that the show's likely not going to last much longer as it is, and given the talent of the cast and the crew who have been sticking around through all the craziness, I don't see these changes as something to fret all that much over. If it's good, then yay. If it's not, then eh, that's a shame, but it's something many shows aren't immune to.

All I know is, I look forward to tomorrow evening.

The writers had an AMA on Reddit earlier today. Lot of interesting stuff in there, though I still don't really know how to use Reddit properly. Megan Ganz admits the finale was incredibly rushed, whilst someone else reckons there's a big chance of season five.

We are the writing staff of NBC's COMMUNITY, AMA : community

Wow, what a crazy age we live in. We know now, before even one episode of the season has aired, that the writer of the season finale thinks that the season finale is going to kinda suck.

An unthinkable thing in the past. We know now that Larry and Jerry were somewhat disappointed with the direction they took in the Seinfeld finale, and that they realized they didn't make it enough like a "typical" Seinfeld episode...but what if we fucking had reddit back then and knew about that going into the episode? Crazy.

Reading Ganz's views on that episode is totally going to color the way I watch it now.

This hyper-information age is not always a good thing. Oh, well. What can you do? I guess it's partially my own fault for being on the internet so god damn much.

Or you could just not give a shit, watch it and make up your own mind, like I will.

Pretty sure Ganz is going to have high expectations on herself.

Thanks for the Reddit link, cobl. So NBC wasn't sure about the "Dungeons & Dragons" episode? Why does that not surprise me? Also, I'm really intrigued about the Christmas episode now. Bottle episode and borrowed from Hitchcock? Hmmm.

As for tonight's episode: hectic. Lot of stuff crammed in, some of it worked better than other parts. Liked the idea of the "Abed's World" show thing, but it was probably my least favorite part of the show in how it played out overall (though there were some good moments and Fred Willard worked surprisingly well amongst the cast).

But I think the show got better as it went on, and all the stuff between Jeff and Dean Pelton was so much fun (I love the apartment thing at the end. Oh, dear). Not perfect, but I didn't expect it to be such, and overall, I'm still interested in seeing what else these guys can come up with for the remainder of the season.

I didn't like this episode. But it was the same sort of forgettable as a lot of season 3, not necessarily some post-Harmon implosion.

If more jokes landed for me, I probably wouldn't notice this, but the DP and Directors for the last season+ have felt really weak. Everything is high key and well lit to the point of feeling like a cheap set, and the scene blocking feels clumsy as well. Complaints for a comedy!

My thoughts exactly. Not thrilled. Not even necessarily happy to have it back after that.

I missed it. DVR didn't work. It's not on demand. Lame.

It is so strange to have a show written in this way by people who know how it should be written who still can't get it done. Has there ever been a showrunner with such a vision like Dan Harmon? No one can do it like him, even his most trusted allies, like Ganz. It's depressing, isn't it?
