The only character that was funny in season 1 and 2 and now he's gone. Community going downhill very quickly.

Chevy Chase is a selfish *******. It was only a matter of time before this ****ing ****** left the show.

That's pushing it. In season 2 his screen time was cut down drastically.

Imo Jeff and Abed carry the show. Troy is also funny but not enough to carry a show, he works best with Abed.

With the way things have been going recently, I'm not even looking forward to the next season of Community, and beyond. Was my favorite show... Agreed with a previous poster that I don't believe Chevy is in the wrong.

Community's officially done now. Too bad Harmon just **** the bed before he left.

Yeah I agree, I don't think Community can hold on anymore.

Even though it's pretty popular, ratings-wise it's done poorly compared to other big-time sitcoms.

Add to that the changing timeslots, tension among cast and directors, Harmon getting fired and now Chase leaving, this show is doomed.

I watched the first half of season 1 over again and I can truly say that the show was great at first... since about season 2 and all of 3 it's been awful after it turned into "Abed & Troy's esoteric comedy show"

I don't see the show surviving this. Chevy Chase was still the biggest name in the cast, and for a show barely hanging on, there's no reason to keep it around.

They overdid the Troy/Abed stuff at times, and the back end of the third season went completely off the wall, but I was okay with it. They thought they were getting cancelled for sure and just went, "**** it". I wouldn't want it to become the norm , though.

What I didn't like was Troy and Britta making googly eyes at one another all damn season. I felt like this show should have been above that sort of teenagey crap.

I would agree that the show bowing out after these 13 episodes is probably for the best. While all shows that go beyond their shelf-life are painful to watch, I really think one that often delves into the eccentric like Community would be an excruciating train wreck if it hung around too long. Now that a principle cast member is walking out, it seems the time is right to go out on a high (well, hopefully on a high).

Besides, they've been doing this one season taking place over one year thing, so what are they going to do? Have them attending community college for 6-7 years? Coming back as teachers? Ugh, gross.

Pierce was the only character that could always make me laugh.

This show has been going downhill so quickly...

That awkward moment when people found Pierce remotely useful/enjoyable.

Really, guys? Chase has been dead weight from the beginning.

I don't think Chevy Chase is going to make or break the show, but it's not like it was going to be any good with or without him, IMO.

I usually liked his character on the show it sure does seem as if in real life he goes out of his way to pi** everybody off: http://gawker.com/5899097

He's been the group's antagonist since season two. How exactly is that no role? He constantly brings the rest of the group together.

When people say stuff like he's the funniest one in the cast, I cringe like crazy, but in the show's peak/special episodes, Pierce is suddenly a great character, and one of the better ones-- so he's deinitely not useless. He's awful the rest of the time though.

I liked Community more before the characters were forced into certain roles (Pierce = villain, Britta = dumb and annoying, and so on).

There's this, as well as Chang being a better villain. They could find any other actor to come on and be the villain. Don't need Chase to be that guy at all.

Agreed on everything here.

Pierce certainly has his moments of greatness, but he's the most inconsistent character on the show.



I had no hopes for Season 5 to begin with, so this doesn't really change that. His departure may bring the cost down enough for it to be a consideration, though...NBC is going to have a lot of shows to replace next year so sticking with it (at an even further reduced budget) may be in the cards just out of convenience...but I'm not holding my breath.

Chevy was great. I'll miss him, and so will the show.





Pierce and Troy are the best.

Um what are you people talking about... season two was by far the best and maybe one of the best seasons of comedy ever.

Season 3 was wildly inconsistent but still funny.
