"Follow your bliss" - Dan Harmon
I’ve watched television my entire life. I’ve enjoyed shows over the years like Entourage, Arrested Development, Curb your Enthusiasm, etc. All funny shows to be sure. But I’ve never connected with anything like I have until Community. Something clicked inside me one day when I was watching the trampoline episode and I saw the look on Donald Glover’s face like “this is perfect…this is right.” It was like when Abed first watched Inspector Spacetime. My immediate reaction was “this is the greatest show of all time.” And it is. I’ve never been able to relate to anything on so many levels like I have this brilliant show. To take away Community would not just be to lose a TV show, it would be taking away something (in some cases the only thing) that brings joy to the otherwise mundane lives of thousands of fans. Community brightens my day, it never disappoints me and it’s there for me whenever I need it. I can’t thank Dan Harmon and the cast enough for making this amazing, unique and touching show. I wish I could be out there in New York with all of you trying to get NBC to come to their senses.
I can’t think of a more important cause than making people smile. That’s what this show does for us.
