Last year Community didn’t make my best of list, I didn’t hate S4 as much as others did but it just felt like a different show. S5 corrected a lot of the problems but the series still feels like it has lost the brilliance it had in earlier seasons.
I really liked the introduction of Hickey (Jonathan Banks) as the grumpy old man of the group and the re-introduction of Duncan (John Oliver) but losing Troy (Donald Glover) was hard and I’m not sure if the show is ever going to feel the same again.
At least Troy got a great goodbye episode and I really did enjoy a lot of S5 but I wonder if after being saved from cancellation yet again the show should just wrap it up next season (after of course a final movie). It is hard to say goodbye but it would be better than the show getting cancelled (again) and never having a proper conclusion. The characters and the audience deserve that. Greendale Community College will last forever in our hearts but maybe it is time to move on.
