𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆: 𝗦𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝟰 (𝟮𝟬𝟭𝟯) ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I must confess, I had some trepidation going straight into the show’s fourth season, knowing the shifting gears in the overall feel of it and the fact that it’s not really as well regarded by fans. In amidst changing showrunners, with Dan Harmon temporarily departing and Chevy Chase being constantly frustrated with the material and the apparent fact that he was quite a pain to work with, contributed to something that was trying to replicate what made the first three seasons so great, but the results weren’t quite so. I still don’t think this is as bad as some people made it out to be, it’s just that some of the decisions felt ill advised. Take for example the whole Troy & Britta relationship that nobody really asked for, but it’s so poorly developed, that towards the end they really didn’t feel the need to address it. And there are instances like these, where there’s an overarching thing going on, up until the moment when the writers feel they wrote themselves into a corner and suddenly pull the plug on the whole thing. The Chang/Kevin subplot is another perfectly good example, with the whole Changnesia aspect to it, and the City College tease from the finale which doesn’t go anywhere. Also, having an episode where we’ve been given origin stories to our study group felt a bit tacked on, even if there were some laughs to be had in some of those moments. On the other hand, Troy and Abed switching bodies felt like something akin to the pair’s antics and was really nicely done and there is a Halloween episode in there which does really stand out. So not a bad season overall, but far from the greater heights achieved with the first three seasons.
