Trivia

Chevy Chase and the show parted ways after shooting the 11th episode, which was the finale, shot out of order. However, Chase agreed to record dialogue for this episode, which was the last episode to be produced, in which the cast mostly appears in puppet form. So because of this, although his puppet is part of the cast, Pierce is not seen in human form. See more »

Quotes

Dean Pelton: Oh, look! It is my favourite study group. They all really typify the diversity we have here at Greendale. A ruggedly handsome leading man. A mom, an activist, a perfect student, a lifelong learner, a sidekick, and... Abed.

Really?!
16 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

What on earth has happened to Community? Have they so completely forgotten who they were as a show? Are they so empty of ideas that they now have to rely purely on gimmicks and barely-thought plots?

While I've always loved Community's lean towards the surreal, it was not part of the norm. We'd get season finales with paintball wars and fun Halloween specials with zombies and that was it. It was those episodes which were remembered because they shone out - they took well loved, believable, awesome characters and put them into great, movie- referencing situations. Now that EVERY episode is like that (and not nearly as clever as before), it's all become boring. To be honest, it feels like all of these 'specials' are just fillers because they've got so little plot or comedy to sustain the season. I haven't laughed once since this season began. Jim Rash used to be funny, now he's just annoying, and this is JIM RASH! Look what they've done to him! They've lost touch with what made Community great.

Perhaps it's not their fault, I feel as if Community has run its course. All the characters have grown immensely and there's very little left for them to do, so they're stuck blurting out clichés: Jeff has to mention he's awesome and is there a SINGLE line where Shirley doesn't mention Jesus? Really?

The study group is not stuck in a rut, the show is. Why couldn't they just bite the bullet and end with season 4? They could have started wrapping things up, we wouldn't end up with a whole season coming out without Pierce (who has been woefully underused) and they could have tried to finish with some dignity.

The worst part is, I'll still watch it, because I remember what the show used to be, because I am now emotionally invested in these characters. But I am counting down the days until it ends. Urgh, what a pity.
