The renewal of “Community” means everything. And the renewal of “Community” means nothing.
Both statements are polar opposites of one another, yet utterly true at the same time. Instead of a cat inside Schrödinger’s box, Dan Harmon is under there, probably thinking, “Holy shit, I actually have to do this now, don’t I?”
Both are true, of course, depending on your personal perspective. As news swept through Twitter, there wasn’t an indifferent response to be found. Everything was either THIS IS THE BETTER EVER or HAHA OH INTERWEBS or WHY NOT TROPHY WIFE YOU BASTARDS. This makes sense, not just because Twitter is where subtlety goes to die one subtweet at a time, but also because “Community” has always been one of the more polarizing shows on television. Long before programs like “Girls” and “True Detective” hoped to make people issue blanket Big Think Pieces on a daily basis, “Community” challenged and divided viewers, especially in the online world.
