Dan Harmon‘s return to Community has made a big difference. While he was away, the show’s attempts to tickle the that little flap of skin at the base of our skulls that triggers warm, fuzzy nostalgia feelings were more of a punch than a tickle. Now that he’s back, they’re doing an episode entirely animated in the style of G.I. Joe and it doesn’t feel like a punch to the back of the head at all. Thanks goodness he and his tickly brain fingers are back.
It seems that NBC now knows that there is no Community without Dan Harmon. And knowing is important.
I Britta’d that one.
