Community (Season 4) (2013)

Following the public falling out between “Community” creator Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase, which resulted in Harmon’s departure from this season, it’s not surprising that there are some growing pains here and there in this season, given the abrupt nature of the creative changes. Most of them are negligible but it’s undeniable that there’s a bit of an adjustment period, although luckily the show eventually acquits itself well to its new Harmon-less creative process. The characters remain consistent yet surprising, while the comedic acting is never anything less than perfectly delivered, which adds a reliable beat-for-beat flow from each episode. For a season that was so compromised behind-the-scenes, it’s impressive that it’s as good as it is really, so ultimately you don’t really mind its stumbles along the way.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
