Yea, that totally ended as if Harmon knows this won't be renewed. Fully expecting it to be cancelled now.

Really? It just felt like they were ramping up for the season finale to me. Maybe it could work as a series finale, but then again there are still 4 more episodes before we get a realistic feeling as to Harmon's intent.

Re: Community -- "Course Listing Unavailable" -- 5/03/12

I'd expect this will be renewed, if only because usually when a show gets about this far into its run it makes sense for the production company to have more episodes for marketing the show down the road and often therefore will do crazy stuff like give the network a bit of the action to make it happen or slash the licensing.

If Chevy goes, they could get either Dan Ackroyd or Jon Lovitz to take his place. They seem to be the go-to guys to take over for other former SNL actors.

Bill Murray would be the far cooler option for taking over (though obviously he's far busier at this stage than the likes of Jon or Dan).

Community is still funny, but the show has taken way too many creative risks this season that simply haven't paid off. The network should have tried reining in some of the wilder concepts. It's why NBC is in dead last place.

I recommend you stop watching now and pretend it WAS the finale.

Do you know something we don't know about the last 3 episodes?

Chill out, take some Midol, and stop attacking anyone that says anything you interpret as bad about the show. I don't think it's going to be cancelled because it's a bad show (I LIKE the show) but because of the ratings and the ending of that last episode felt like a "goodbye, I don't think we'll be back" from Harmon.

I don't think Harmon would have made his "goodbye, I don't think we'll be back" episode be #18 out of 22. My guess is if he really feels that way, he'll do it in #22.

Three episodes left? Hope they actually do something with Troy and the AC Repair school.

Didn't someone say NBC is airing episodes out of order? Maybe 18 was actually supposed to be 22. Again I hope it's not cancelled, but that felt like a goodbye episode.

Yes, see my post at Post #3

Harmon said in his Tweet that episode 21 is the actual season finale. He said they are out of order based on just production code. So I guess that's a relief.

That was cool stuff, all the callbacks and then they were at the table again, flipping to see who goes, and the pizza guy "wait... there are other timelines?" as the door closed.

Funny stuff, not a bad episode.

Here we are at the end and I thought that was supposed to be a big plot this season.

Well, I really hope that 30 Rock and Community gets renewed. Thursday night NBC has the only sitcoms that I really care about. 30 Rock is the only show that I'm always really looking forward to watching Friday mornings.

Look if one of us is acting like a woman, it's you. I gave you solid advice. If you think that this episode would be a good series finale then if you stop watching the show now, you'll have more time to watch other shows. I can't imagine what I would do with all the extra time I'd have if I had acted like the last episode of Season 8 of the X-Files was the series finale, the last episode of season 7 of Happy Days was the series finale, or the last episode of season 10 of the Simpsons?

I worded that poorly, I know he was Omar from the wire but wasn't sure he was the Biology teacher.

I think he was underused and that's a shame he could have been a great addition to the show.

Yeah him and John Goodman, wish they had more to do. And John Oliver too, come to think of it.

two pages of comments, and no one mentions...
Spoiler:
"Come on, I'm Dean
And my hands are so clean
At this moment...
I am stapling."


that may have been one of the best random Dean moments in the entire series.

Good one! Are you in bed with Harmon or something? I've noticed you in multiple threads now jumping on anyone that says anything negative about the show. If you really are a guy (you should look into changing that username, everyone thinks you're a chick. Your whiny attacks and overly sensitive nature don't help either) then grow a pair and learn to respect other's opinions. Now stop typing your angry response, take a deep breath, and don't respond. Just move along. Thank you
