I don't think that the writing was so much 'bad' as it was Harmon being upset with NBC/Sony and deciding to test them by making the show as 'weird' as possible (seriously, 'Dreamatorium' episodes, an 8-bit episode...not that they weren't funny, but he pushed the button when they said 'Don't push the button'); I love Community more than most TV shows, but 'weird' shows alienate people (hence the ****** numbers), and big corporations like NBC and Sony are not in the business of alienating viewers, they're in the business of making money.

I'm watching season one right now on DVD, and that was just some magical **** right there. I wish him success, but I know why he was canned; he did not want to play ball, and NBC is not HBO or AMC; you have to play ball if you want a job there.
