Love the AbedTV sitcom stuff. Which is basically an "F U" to Big Bang Theory and their audience. Making fun of worthless, terrible comedy....

Overall, good episode. Fred Willard as Pierce, lol. Did anyone notice that Chevy Chase seemed to be marginalized in this episode. Did nothing. No one even spoke to him. Think real life is creeping into show a bit.

The actor who plays Leonard will be 88 in June. Makes Chevy Chase look like a youngster.

Well, Chevy did end up leaving the show before they finished the filming the final episode of the season, so it makes sense that he was mentally leaving before that.

Just watched last night's episode. Very weak.

Not a bad idea, turning Pierce's mansion into a haunted house, parody of House in the Woods, but humor was almost nonexistent. Where were the writers?

Probably one of the worst Community episodes ever.

These characters are becoming annoying as f***, it's like Saved By The Bell crossed with Reddit humor, a bit too knowing yet cheesy. Makes me wonder whether Chang was the glue holding it all together.

Chang was great as the spanish teacher aka Senor Chang but I felt he dropped off a bit after, still was good though.

I think Pierce is the most entertaining character in the show. I think they need to start focusing the show on being in a community school instead of random off topic skits.

Well this 3rd episode at the Inspector Spacetime convention was bad....really bad. Two episodes in a row away from Greendale, and both were lame. Wow....I think the show has lost it. Maybe Harmon's exit is more important than it would appear........

I think they're overdoing the Troy and Abed connection. Yeah they beat friends and are into oddball antics, but why not try to flesh out Troy and Britta's relationship more? At least get back to Greendale or something.

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.

Somewhat related news: NBC falls to fifth most watched network.


But it's okay! Keep canceling your shows that at least have a dedicated audience. Who needs 30 Rock, Community (with Harmon), and not giving any of your shows a chance to grow.


Also props for most likely killing Revolution like you did the Event.
