Community season 4|
I mainly like Community because I saw most of the first & second seasons whilst high as tits. As a result, I thought it was brilliant, inventive and funny, with incredible writing and a superb cast.
When season 3 rolled around, I started having doubts.
I was sober for season 4, and didn't laugh once. This seemed strange, so I went back to season 1. Suddenly, my favourite characters were obnoxious, the clever writing fell flat, etc.
It was obvious to me that, while there is a noticeable drop in quality after season 2, Community was never that good in the first place.
The series I loved never existed.
My favourite aspect of the show during this season has been Chevy Chase. I suppose it's a case of rooting for the underdog (supposedly everyone hates him in real life too, so the delineation between reality and fiction is blurred, as far as his character is concerned). There's more to it than that, however - one episode in particular makes him seem like a decent guy (the one in which he tells Jeff to go easy on Britta). I've always found him oddly likeable - more than other viewers give him credit for, and moreso now that I dislike everyone else.
Anyway, I found S4 to be watchable (except for Felt Surrogacy, which was horrible) and not without a certain charm. I also found it interesting to see how they worked around Chevy Chase's departure. Overall,
