    I thought Remedial Chaos Theory really brought home how much of a community they really have. With any of them missing, the results were disastrous.

    Modern Warfare and Remedial Chaos Theory are easily two of the best episodes of television I've seen in a really long time.

    I'd care a lot more if they promised to never give Chang another millisecond of air time.

    Is this the only TV show you have ever watched then?

    Cause I'm sure there are a lot more great TV moments that far surpass this ep.

    (Note that we are regular watchers of Community)


    :D

    Watchers, maybe. But certainly not appreciaters (and maybe not even understanders).

    That's not terribly fair. I think all on this forum have the intelligence to understand this sitcom. :)

    I really, really liked some of season 1 and 2. Modern Warfare, the one with the space simulator, the dungeons and dragons one...

    Maybe I watch too many shows and movies, or read too much sci fi. The Chaos Theory theme was tired to me. Done and done and done again. Butterfly flaps its wings in Brazil and... Heck, even The Simpsons did one where Homer went back in time and stepped on a bug and then it was raining donuts. Now that was funny.

    I think he was being sarcastic, but your point in the context of the thread still stands.

    I was a huge fan of Community in season 1. Season 2 was mostly hit but occasionally miss (the hits were AMAZING). Season 3 is just WAY too much miss. Enough that it isn't worth it to me to keep watching week after week. But suddenly I'm just not smart enough to understand it? Come on, that is just ridiculously pretentious.

    I was responding to a specific post (hence my use of the quote function), so I was not calling out everyone in general who doesn't like Community. The show isn't for everyone, to be sure. (Only the sexy people)

    That said, I find it hard to fathom that anyone that is a fan of the show hasn't liked the last 3-4 eps at all. I will give you that the first 3 eps of the season weren't all that strong (they left me feeling all sorts of meh). But each of the last 4 have been very good to great, and both Chaos Theory and the Halloween ep were hysterical and on par with anything the show has done in the past.

    I respectfully disagree as I thought the last two were a bit weak actually, and I had thought the season started off with a bang. The two episodes where they did the different scenarios for each character were really good, top ten episodes for this series. But the last two fell kind of flat for me. Advanced Gay and Studies in Modern Movement were probably near the bottom of my list as far as Community episodes go (I haven't seen the 17 November episode yet).

    And we all know if Alfer says the sky is blue, ten people here will jump on him about it :)

    As was said, the show is really hit or miss, and when it hits, it's the funniest show on TV, but when it misses, it can REALLY turn someone off from watching, and unfortunately, if there's 2 or 3 misses in a row, you are going to lose viewers.

    No fear..I appreciate what they do..and that's to be quirky and offbeat and they succeed at that and that's why the show is still an amusing way to spend 30 minutes of TV time vs. much of the other droll offerings on TV today.

    I just watched one of the older episodes where Chang is a security guard and arrests the blond girl. Yeah, it does not have the laughs of Modern Family for example but I still like it.

    This week's episode, which spoofed Hearts of Darkness, was absolutely brilliant, so I'm sure most people hated it.

    I've fallen asleep two nights in a row trying to watch it. But haven't formed an opinion just yet.

    Did they spoof the Tim Roth/John Malkovich movie, or the original Joseph Conrad story, or the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now?
