As we all know, Dan Harmon, the creator and showrunner of the totally excellent Community, has been fired. He’s off to pastures new, leaving NBC to appoint some ex-Happy Endings producers as showrunners in his place. The resulting worry is, of course, that season four of Community, the premiere of which was delayed from mid-October for no good reason, isn’t going to be anywhere near as good as a result.
Well, here’s some footage from the premiere and I’m going to say… it’s not. It looks like it’s been written by someone who’s seen Community, but doesn’t get Community. Hopefully, I’m wrong.
