Last week the third season of Community ended on a high and I thought I’d just let the Americans amongst you know that you are killing my favourite US comedy too soon.
NBC commissioned just THIRTEEN more episodes for the fourth series before announcing that that would be the end of the Greendale Seven on our screens (save for possible re-runs). I honestly don’t understand why the show didn’t get the viewership it clearly deserved because everyone I introduced to the show is just as enamoured as I am. I knew that it was probably a little too “out there” for some, but with shows like Scrubs and even The Big Bang Theory getting ratings, I thought the least America could do would be to recognise and celebrate creativity when it’s displayed in the form of such an awesome show.
But these things happen. I forgive you, America. You could always make it up to us in Britain by watching the final series zealously in a last-ditch attempt to get the show back, or at least a spinoff, on the air.
Just to let you know what we’re fighting for, these are a couple of videos that may spur you to action.
