Community, Season 4, Episode 3: “Conventions of Space and Time”

Written by Maggie BandurAlison

Directed by Michael Patrick Jann

Airs Thursdays at 8pm Et on NBC

Over the last few weeks, the new Community has been garnering a lot of comparisons to CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, and until tonight they had seemed hyperbolic. It’s very easy to imagine the script of “Conventions of Space and Time” repurposed as an episode of The Big Bang Theory. That’s something that could never be said, even at its most inconsistent, of Dan Harmon’s show. The episode is written and directed by newcomers which is telling, but the most bothersome aspect is the lengths to which it goes in an attempt to appease Harmon’s fans

We’re three episodes into season four and we’ve yet to see a single scene of the group sitting around the table in the study room. »
