Well if anything, he was being anti-racist by being racist.

S3 of Community had some awful awful episodes (and I guess it's possible that I only landed on the bad ones with Happy Endings, but I really didn't get that vibe), but it seemed to be hitting a much much higher peak, IMO-- for my money, that's the important thing.
I found some episodes to be better than others, if you have a lot of time to kill give the series a shot from epi1, you'd burn through them rather quick anyway.

USE. PROPER. TERMS.

Temporary interruption is journalism gossip code for "people looked at him funny and then furiously tweeted stuff". They didn't 'shut down production' ffs. Read the article next time.

Nope, but the set of Community is rife with losers in every angle. Chevy's original complaints turned out to be right and I think when the dust has settled he'll be vindicated. The show could be really funny if it got its head out of its ass.

I guess I'm the only one who feels like Chevy said nothing offensive?

Hard to work up the motivation to zip through something that even supporters like you only seem to like to a limited degree.

Is it something that needs to be seen from the beginning? If not, any convincing standout episodes?

Chevy is in the right on this one, in my opinion. Community's characters never learn or change really, so turning Pierce even more racist is just in bad taste. What purpose does it serve? He's already pretty insensitive and racist.

insidetv.ew.com:

The timeline just brightened: NBC has finally announced the premiere date for the fourth season of Community, and it isÖ Feb. 7 at 8 p.m.

While itís a bit of a wait, the good news for fans is that the community college-set comedy will be airing on its traditional home of Thursdays (in the slot occupied by the departing 30 Rock) instead of Fridays, where it had been slotted for this season. Less than two weeks before season 4′s planned Oct. 19 debut, though, NBC announced that it was postponing Community, along with fellow Friday comedy Whitney, as it was focusing on promoting the other nights of its schedule. (Season 2 of Whitney will now debut Wednesday, Nov. 14 in place of the now-cancelled Animal Practice.)

I think I will die of old age before season 4 ever premieres. Which is sad, because I'm 18 months old.

:FDSJ:SLDFJLSDHCJLHIWUECNWE F All the sitcoms on TV are meh. I watch them anyways but Community was the only one that got me excited. Well I still get quite excited for The Office but even that's over this year.

I discovered that show 3 days ago and I watched all the episodes in one go. Sheer brilliance. Can't wait for February.

Damn, Pierce was funny, but he got worse as was mentioned. Still don't like him being cut.

Never cared for Chase nor his character. Should have cast Kurtwood Smith for the elder role instead
