Re: Community Season 4
Executives and people involved in a show fail to understand why creative times are so rigid and specific in their requests. Its because creative things need labor and resilience to make sure that the final product is as perfect as possible.
NBC and the people working on Community were saying that Harmon was being too demanding and wanting things specifically the way he says... Well now we see why that is. Its because he works to have a show that is fluid in its storytelling and has authentic situations and characters. He knew that there needs to be more than zany pop culture references, stylized settings, and off the cuff remarks and jokes. Season 4 is proving that you need a showrunner who understands all the facets of entertainment and that you cant succeed with style if its not solidified by sufficient substance. Its like a bad parody of a parody.
