People were decrying Community after the season opener. Saying it’s a shadow of it’s former self.
Well after watching community religously for the past 4 years I’ve no doubt that community tends to finish strong but open very weakly except on one season where they opened strong had an okay middle and a somewhat weaker but still strong close.
I still feel a little out of sorts which I imagine as somewhat like to people who used to date each other but after a short but meaningful break decided to get back together. Even if we’re jiving before the feeling out stage begins anew.
Hope Episode 3 (Although I also enjoyed season 3 episode 2 it just felt like it was shot just in time for Halloween and was unfortunately delayed by the general delay in all things community for season 3)
Six Seasons And A Movie!!!!!
Read the whole thing here , I didn’t want to post the whole review.
Nice Movie Review from /film
But what I appreciated most was the way that the film captured the modern American male condition with thought and humor. On the whole, when men get married, study after study has demonstrated that they are more likely to depend more on their spouses for emotional support than they do on others, as opposed to females, who are typically able to maintain a more extensive social network. As a result, widowed men experience higher rates of depression and shorter periods until remarriage. When you couple this with conclusions such as those found in sociologists Robert Putnam’s book, Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of the American Community, you end up with a profound cynicism about the emotional life of the modern American male that’s become fairly pervasive in our culture (see: Fight Club). Putnam paints a pretty bleak picture of American social life, claiming that the ties that have bound us in our communities (e.g. bowling leagues) have withered dramatically to the detriment of civic engagement. In other words, these days, it’s difficult for men to keep quality male friends, and even harder for them to make new ones.
