Debate of the Day: Should Netflix Save Community?

community2

Well, I’m eating my words and it finally happened, NBC cancelled Community. I previously predicted this would not come to pass, given NBC’s recent desire to retain any show with a fanbase now matter how low its ratings.

It appears there was a limit, and Community breached it. Unlike Parks and Rec, it will get no fixed final season to say goodbye, and we have to be content with Abed’s canonical asteroid strike that wiped out all life on Earth in the Greendale universe.

Now there are expected cries to other networks to save Community, directed toward Netflix in particular who has the clout, resources and past history that would indicate Community might be able to slide over there.

The question is, should it?

After five seasons and damn near a hundred episodes, has Community really been “killed too soon?” Perhaps, but not by much.

I think NBC should have at least let them come back for a shortened season to say goodbye. Just six or eight episodes even, where they could at least fashion some sort of organized finish. That would technically be a sixth season, and set a hard end date for the show they could plan around. I do not think Community should be the type of show to go for eight, nine, ten seasons, and run itself into the ground, but I think it deserved better than swift cancellation after five seasons as well.

I guess now places like Netflix are the only hope for more episodes of Community, whether it’s a farewell tour or a real season. What do you think should be the fate of the show? Fade away or try and return to go out with a bang?
