    Except that it is the October 19th on February 7th, so yeah, Community is back on February 7th.

    NBC said for the longest of times that Community would return on October 19th, so the current explanation for the changed date is that there is a second October 19th, in February.


    I'm pretty stoked, I love this show. My free time this summer consisted of me watching Community, several times over actually. One of the few american major network comedies that makes me really laugh.
    But I am pretty ambivalent, it seems like NBC really wants to kill the show, but they are not really brave enough to do it with a show with this many fans. We'll see in the future though, but overall this is pretty good news:yesway:

    I love Community too. Pretty sure this season is kind of like what Chuck did. A last season with less episodes to get it into syndication or some such thing.

    And I never really got into Chuck, my younger sister really liked it, but I just couldn't get aboard with it.

    One solution for Community could be trying to get it over to another network...

    Le bumpage!

    I don't watch that much prime-time TV, so I never really knew about this show. I only found out about it a few weeks ago when I caught an episode. Loved the humor. Then, yesterday, the Comedy Network here in Canada ran an all-day marathon, which I watched while cleaning house. Now I'm hooked.

    Reading about the show, it does seem like it's been on the decline ratings-wise for the whole time it's been on the air, barring things like season premiers. It hardly has more viewers than Game of Thrones, and that's on HBO. It does bear mentioning, though, that they haven't yet moved the show to the "Friday Night Death Slot," so that's a mildly encouraging sign.

    Think I'll pick up Seasons 1-3 on DVD. :D

    I'm really hoping this season is just the last one so they can write it up to a proper ending. Besides, college only takes 4 years anyways so realistically the show only had a 4 year life span. Plus, Chevy Chase left before the final season was done filming so he won't even be in the last couple episodes

    Well, they've addressed that on an episode where Joel McHale straight out says that the average community college student attends school for six years:lol:


    As for Chevy Chase, he wasn't really that great of a character in season 3 IMO:2c:

    Wasn't the Fat Neil episode in season 3 or was that 2? Regardless, that was his character's greatest moment.

    He was a glorious villain, that's true... And I do believe it was in season 3.

    Aww, screw it, he wa a cool antagonist in season 3, but I do not think that I will miss him.

    NOPE! The D&D episode is season 2. Episode 14 I think, might be 15 though.

    Possible the greatest episode that has ever graced TV.

    I think my favorite episode, at least of the ones I saw yesterday, was the one with the gigantic pillowfort...

    "Latvian Independence parade. Don't look at me, they had the proper permits!"

    :lol:

    (Also quite enjoyed the D&D episode, the paintball apocalypse episode, the episode with all the different timelines, and the one where some of the group takes a boating class.)

    hopefully it returns to the 1st seasons style, the last season and a half were kind of killer and seemed more like typical big network episodes. if they run the same template and make it more and more cheesey and family oriented than i might not even care that gillian jacobs is sexy and quit watching
