Last night’s “Heroic Origins” episode of Community was heroic indeed, as it was the first episode of this underwhelming fourth season that has been able to keep my attention. In the latest episode, the study group is trying to study for the history class final, while Abed (Danny Pudi) embarks on yet another parody.
Last night’s Community episode, Intro to Knots, returned to normal, which sadly in season four terms means that it's a show that I can barely sit through. What’s especially depressing is that being able to watch an entire episode of Community these days isn’t just normal, but also a compliment.
As soon as Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) said, “Sock hop” in this week’s Herstory of Dance, I couldn’t help but smirk. All I could think about was how my friends from high school would rush into Physics class to write their rendition of that phrase onto the white board.
It has become harder to watch Community these days. The show, once at the top of the comedic television world, has become almost unrecognizable. After recapping every episode of Season 4 so far, there isn’t much to write anymore; the characters have slightly different personalities, the jokes aren’t funny, and there is the constant need to make every episode a parody, which in turn has caused the latest season of Community to feel like a parody of itself.
“I remember when this show was about community college,” Abed (Danny Pudi) says in "Paranormal Parentage." Those words were in the back of my mind last night as I watched "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations.
After the first two episodes of this season, I thought that Community might turn into another Indiana Jones debacle where I only buy the first three seasons (movies) because, you know, “the fourth one blows.
“You’re like the dark cloud that unites us, or the anti-Winger. You’re the heart of this group. I don’t have a real handle on all this mushy stuff. If I did, then we wouldn’t need you,” Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) told Britta (Gillian Jacobs) when she became recognized as the buzzkill of the group.
