Listen, I had to edit my review now that Season 4 is almost over. I did take one point away simply because season 4 really hasn't been spectacular as WHOLE, but there have been some amazing episodes, such as Paranormal Parentage, Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations, Herstory of Dance, Intro to Felt Surrogacy, Intro to Knots, Heroic Origins. It took the new showrunners a little bit to get on track, but it's still the same show. Us TV nerds just have a hard time looking past the publicized Behind the scenes shakeups. The show is still really good. Hope NBC renews it for another go-around. I'm not ready to depart the Study Group just yet.
The 4th Season is shorter, and different in tone. It's not as great as the previous seasons but it is still enjoyable, it's not like every episode is horrible and without merit now. I'm still looking for Season 5, and that's all that matters right
My favorite of Abed. He makes the show.
