    Fantastic news, I am so glad. Now ABC, please renew Happy Endings!

  • Paul

    YES! The biggest problem with the fourth season wasn’t quality of writing, it was rushed story arcs. Heck, the first episode of the season felt like they tried to fit four different episodes into one because of the shortened season. I’ve love if this was a full season order, because in the later part of the season “Community” was starting to get its groove back.

    Great! :) Hopefully it’s for 16 episodes so that it hits that magical 100.

    I don’t know enough about NBC’s pilots. I wonder if they plan to pair this with Parks and Rec, or would one of their new comedy’s go with P&R?

    This show attracts 2 kinds of viewers. The first are critic types, amateur and professional reviewers who take it in turn to pick at the show and look for reasons to hate it. The second are people who like the fact that a bright, not always perfect, and overwhelmingly friendly show that celebrates brightness, the world’s imperfections, and friendship will be around to put a smile on their face and make a pop culture reference. I hail from the second camp, and this news just made my day,
