Five Alive

There seemed to be no other way, so I bought the DVD of the fifth season of Community.

Community lasted six seasons (no movie yet).  For the first three it's at full strength, with the original seven students--and supporting cast--all there, and run by creator Dan Harmon.  These episodes were rerun many times.

Season four was also rerun, but Dan Harmon was kicked off the show, so the season doesn't quite work, though it has its moments.

Seasons five and six would have been different in any case, since the show was about a study group in college--they're going to graduate in four years and the plot has to go in another direction.  But season five is still a return to form, somewhat, since Dan Harmon came back.  Admittedly, Chevy Chase was gone, and Donald Glover appeared only in the first five of thirteen episodes, but the season was still pretty good.  However, it was never part of the rerun package.

Season six, done for Yahoo!, was missing too much--Chase and Glover were both gone and Yvette Nicole Brown had to miss a lot of episodes--so it was season five I wanted most to see again.

And now I will.  I haven't watched it yet, though, so I have nothing to say about it.  Instead, let's watch some Community credits done in the style of other shows.

So you don't have Hulu either?

My God, man, loosen up. You get what you pay for.

I already have premium cable and Netflix. How much am I supposed to pay?

Give up the premium cable and add Prime, Hulu and Acorn. You'll come out ahead.

Of course they'll then try to sell you all the premium cable channels . . .
