To provide full-time care to her ailing father...and to be on another show?

Its decline was just a red herring.

Honestly, with the phantom season bringing the Jeff-Dad issues to an anticlimactic thud, I'm surprised it took them this long to mine this storyline.

Gillian Jacobs directed the Queen of Code, a documentary on Grace Hopper, and you can watch it here

So no opinions on this season in exile yet?

Those who found S5 to be woeful probably won't change their minds, but as someone who found the season charming enough if totally complacent (especially given all the backstage turmoil), I can say it's not the failure it could have been. This season hasn't found them changing that – there's been no real standout classic episode yet – but I do feel it's began to own up to it. Instead of fighting against the budget cuts, or the cast changeover or the credibility-stretching 6-year community college premise, I feel the show's at least going with the tide. Gone are the elaborate concept episodes, sure, but in it's place is a much more casual hang-out vibe built off the cast's natural charm more than anything else. If the show seems less concerned with huge arcs and mini-mythos and attempts at huge stakes, it's also given up the trend towards treacle (note the absence of Jeff-speeches) and shipping fan-service, which may have felt arch in early seasons but became overbearing near the end.

It's not amazing television yet, but I feel it's found a more modest groove which it could ride to a second wind if S7 were to occur. Given the downgrade, it's conceivable there saving the big concept episodes for the end, so we'll see how they play out

How do you watch this show now? Is it on the internet or something? My DVR hasn't picked up any new episodes.

And surprisingly free, as I thought until recently that Screen was Yahoo's entry into the Netflix/Hulu game, when it's really more their Youtube.

There's no budget downgrade, in fact they have a slightly larger budget than the last season on NBC

Which I've since learned... Perhaps the cast has gotten a bigger payoff or they're planning for something (they are doing another paintball... which is questionable), because it certainly doesn't feel that way.

Of course, after my laurels above, the show took a multi-episode dive into akward "gas leak" territory. With that said, I thought the last episode was perhaps the strongest of the season, and once again it's strength was just having the cast casually bounce off eachother.

Yahoo previously teased that it may be renewing “Community” for a seventh season, or even take part in a movie deal with the Greendale Community College gang. That may appear less likely with Tuesday’s disclosure, but insiders tell Variety that a “Community” movie is still in play — with or without Yahoo.
Still pressing that joke I see. This has become like the Simpsons where I keep forgetting it's still being produced.

Complete series is coming to Blu-ray in September from Mill Creek!

I love that Jim Rash is top billed. Maybe the Dean was the real protagonist all along

Best news I have read all day. The Happy Endings announcement had renewed my longing for Community on Blu. Over the moon for this!
