All 3 are up for this shortened season thing.

Community is officially returning for 13 eps, at least.

As said, NBC wants to pick up a bunch of pilots.

New Community was pretty good. Was a bit dubious when I realised it was a clip-show, but then none of the clips were from past episodes, which was a bonus. Clare - be warned, Abed is Inspector Spacetime for the pre-opening credits portion of the episode :yes:
Interested to see where things go, and it seems next week we have a triple-bill season finale (including an episode called "The First Chang Dynasty")? Or someone's fucked up the Wiki page.

Also the season finale of The Office was pretty good. Glad to see things work out for Andy but didn't like how the episode ended - not that it was bad, it's just an annoying place to end a season :P

Aye, I thought it was fantastic. Series finale last week was brilliant.
I'd definitely recommend watching the entire series.

to be fair though, a lot of shows now do seem to consist of 10 - 13 episode long seasons, eg The Walking Dead, Dexter, Falling Skies, Rizzolli and Isles, and so on. i think its not only a money saving tactic but also to see where the water treads with some shows. people do seem to get bored of longer season shows about halfway through, so this is a better way of making sure people stick around.

but then, viewing figures dont seem to mean much these days. Alcatraz, which averaged about 4 million viewers by the end of its first season has just been cancelled, but Touch which has had even less viewers, has been renewed. but then they are both run by Fox, and everyone knows what morons they are.

Yeah, it reminded me of paradigm of human memory, which is one of my favourite eps.

Plus all the clips were fucking amazing.


AND KINDA SPOILERS

Yeah, it's 3 episodes on one night to finish off the series. The big throwing over chang and getting themselves gathered and everything. SO basically a solid 60 minutes of Community next friday morning. I am already erect.

Touch has been renewed? Dammit! No chance of a 24 movies with that hanging around...it's ok, but get rid of it!

Cougar Town Series 3 - episode 4 was excellent.

Latest Community was brilliant.

Latest episode of Bones was complete and utter tits.

Game of Thrones was very good this week.

POSSIBLE SPOILER:






























I don't think that body at the end was actually the cripple though. I haven't read the books so don't ruin it for me :lol:

I like Bones and have stuck with it over the years, but the one thing that pissed me off was they spent years developing the will they/wont they relationship and then the writers just seemed to think it was ok to go fuck it, skip over the whole romance thing and then just make her pregnant. was just a big slap in the face.
