Six Seasons and a Movie, Bitches


Community has been renewed. It is going to be six seasons and a movie, bitches.

I hate NBC a lot less today than I did a few days ago. This is the news I have been waiting for all week. I may not blog for a month now. Who knows?

In the week or so leading up to a very, very traumatic event for me, I shot through seasons one through three of Community and savored every minute of it. I think this is one of those sleeper hits that, once people get the stick out of their ass about, will enjoy. This show runs deep, and it has the kind of heart that sustains all of the greats. It will never get to the heights that Cheers got to, but this is a better cast, by a country mile.

The quality of Community this season has been very high. Don't listen to the carping of the haters--the show is well-written and acted by one of the great ensemble casts in the history of television. Yeah, it would be great if Dan Harmon could come back. The thing is, what he created was fantastic enough to survive him, and that should tell the business people to give him another shot.

Today is a good day.
