Big massive cry in the corner.
i was still prepared to watch it
you're to blame.
if this is true I think my girlfriend might kill herself and would like to prepare.
one more season of each, 13 eps
could be worse. at least this way they all get to wrap up!
that link is quite a blow, 3 of the best gone.
wondered what would happen if community went past 4 seasons given that college doesnt last that long, sure they would have come up with some interesting premise to extend it
there's a reason why HBO/AMC/Showtime/FX tend to stick to shorter seasons
30 Rock's time to end organically has came and gone. Community seemed like it was reaching it's natural end point. The only one that looked like it still had legs was Parks & Rec.
No mention of the office? Very few shows have needed to end as much as that does now, despite being streets ahead of the other NBC shows for years.
I can only assume the slots need to be freed up for coverage of the Smiths reunion gigs.
The thread is worth it so see the usual suspects trot out their usual "lolz those shows are rubbish anyway".
BUT PARKS :'((((((((((((((
but my god can they get rid of april and andy. i like their characters a lot but together they're intolerable, especially april. the old april was much better.
since they became a couple there is less reason for them to be there, even more so since the campaign trail story line, but they're still very funny and you know, Ann's been pointless since season 1
She's the straight character. You need that.
and ever since theyve been trying to find stuff for her to do, teaming her up with different people and its never really worked.
Ann's only funny by extension of other characters; generally whenever Leslie or anyone else implies they might be in a relationship, or as a hate figure or April, or as someone Ron refuses to acknowledge. It's as if they're aware she's completely pointless ever since the focus shifted away from the pit
then April, but yeah
However I can see it getting tiresome in the not so distant future. It may be best to try and rap the story and characters up, maybe finish season 3 then do an arrested development style comeback.
Parks and Rec has been slowly slipping, however I still think the show has possibilities, if it wasn't so one dimensional in its plot and character structure.
I really hope Community and Parks carry on for a little bit longer. But not too much.
30 rock is ridiculously overrated and tiresome.
It's become absolutely awful. Like Family Guy awful. I'll always treasure the two golden seasons but I think they should have killed it before this current season which is far too hilarious segway to bizarroworld to be genuinely enjoyable.
I watched the first 2 seasons and then got bored.
6 has been almost uniformly bilge.
(30 Rock and Community *have* been renewed)
Community's last 3 episodes of this season are all shown in one night next week, way to show you care NBC
the next season of 30 Rock would be the last - Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin have hinted as much in the past.
Gutted about Parks and Rec though. I think that had a couple more seasons in it.
from what I have read on the AV club and other places that only 30 Rock is definitely facing its final season. The other two are getting 13 episode seasons (which will most likely run mid-season, the way P & R's 3rd Season did)that could well be increased (There is apparently some precedent for this as it happened to Chuck) if none of NBC's new comedies are that successful. And then there is every chance that they could be renewed again.
was basically them setting up the final season, from I've seen about it, so yeah seems they've known this for some time
THERE IS NO CONFIRMATION ABOUT PARKS YET THOUGH, CHILL!
plus it was only a matter of time before Alison Brie or Donald Glover left anyway because of other work.
Also Chevvy Chase and the creator absolutely hate each other apparently, so there might be a much smaller, much sadder version of Charlie Sheen vs Chuck Lorre round the corner
Neither is community, 30 rock is finishing
I've watched all of season 4 and the first third of season 5 since Saturday. I was going to try to pace myself and make it last until September when it comes back on TV but it's too good.
I even bought this today: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pawnee-Leslie-Knope/dp/1401310648
