Still better than a lot of TV series

Not as good as previous seasons

community season 6 episode 9 grifting 101 leonard middle finger richard erdman

Is Community on Yahoo! still fresh or is it a middle finger to fans?

Greendale is still in danger and the Save Greendale Committee is working hard to protect it. Despite losing another member and the arrival of a new corporate cog in the form of Frankie Dart (Paget Brewster), the group is going to need to rally more than ever if Greendale will continue to be completely sub-adequate in the world of education.  With graduation threatening to destroy their lives, Greendale might not be the home they always dreamed it would be.

Community—Season 6 was released on Yahoo! Screen from March 17, 2015 to June 2, 2015 after being cancelled by NBC. The series was saved after a big push from fans of the series.

Ham, girl! This show still has laughs!

Community was the best and worst of television. It was the best in that it was smartly written and a perfectly timed comedy.  It was the worst in that it was too smart for network television.  After years of floundering for an audience, it found a home where it should be…online.  Unfortunately for Community, it was already too late.

Community is past its prime in this season. That being said, Community is still better than most of the comedies on television (or the internet now I guess).  The series still has some episodes like “Into Recycled Cinema” which combines some of the best aspects of the series into another fun episode…or a return to the paintball episodes in “Modern Espionage”.  Unfortunately it has some so-so episodes as well.

community season 6 episode 8 into recycled cinema

Just remember…Glip Glop is a spy!!!

The season has some good episodes, but the hemorrhaging of the cast has hurt the series. I never felt Chevy Chase was great, but I don’t think the Elroy character adds much to the season (though I do like the jokes surrounding the idea that he’s there are replacements for the other “lost” characters).  The cast still works well together but I also feel that Dean Pelton’s expanded roll over the seasons is a bit much.  I feel that the season also needed more of a villain like Chang and Chase played in the past.

The series still looks like it has a budget. The fear of switching from a big network to something like Netflix (or Yahoo…which barely has series) is that it could look cheaper. Community—Season 1 episodes could be put next to Community—Season 6 and they both look the same.  That is more than I expected or asked for.

Lots of hugs for the remaining cast…now can we get #AndAMovie?

Community always pitched “Six Seasons and a Movie”…the six seasons have happened and now if a movie could happen it would be prophetic. Before the rise of Netflix and Amazon, I would have said that it wasn’t possible, but now, I could see a special Community movie or two popping up on Amazon…maybe with even more of the original cast returning for cameos or full roles.  With smart writing, and even reflection on the idea of these reunion movies, Community: The Movie could happen… #andamovie
