    I agree that they could use this next season to sharpen it up like it needs to be.I was floored when it got renewed for season five.There is a rumor that Dan Harmon may return for season five.

    I don't think it's rumor any more. Dan is back or it is some huge and cruel joke.

    I'm even more shocked (and very happy) about Dan Harmon returning than I was shocked about the show's return.

    That being said, I have to wonder what Sony was thinking because they're going to have the same exact problems with Harmon that they did before.

    Yeah, I kind of wonder if McHale just flat out threatened to leave the show or something. I mean he does have two jobs already anyway.

    It's definitely an odd move, but Sony really has nothing to lose. The ratings didn't show an improvement with Harman gone and people were unhappy, so why not? I don't see it as conciliatory act though, just business.

    They were in a situation before where there was too much bad blood between Harmon and Chase. Since Chase has left the series, that's one less issue they have to deal with. Apparently the other baggage that comes with Harmon was seen as surmountable.

    I'm jazzed. This could be an epic blowout season.

    Ugh. Glover is gone after 5 episodes. This show is cursed.

    I'm guessing his 5 episodes will be spread out. I get that Donald Glover wants to get his movie career going (which, given his talent, could actually be quite large) but it sucks that he's abandoning the show to do it.

    I'm just glad that they've got Banks for so many episodes. Michael K. Williams and John Goodman were great casting choices but their characters didn't really mean much since they both ended up being in so few episodes (I think Williams was only in 2 or 3 and then was gone).

    Hey, Cameron! Had to undergo a fair bit of medical issues this past spring, which kept me off the boards (and away from work), but very glad to be back and posting once again with everyone here. :)

    When they announced Harmon's return a few months back (as well as Chris McKenna's), it was some very, very positive news for me. This news sure makes it sound like the show's back on the right track once again.

    (My only issue: How the hell are they going to explain away Greendale suddenly being located in Belize??)

    Yeah, was thrilled to see that, too -- it's almost as if they're working Banks in as a quasi-Pierce-replacement or something.

    Which, incidentally, I don't mind one little bit.


    EDIT: Also, between this, Parks & Rec, and Axe Cop, Banks is certainly landing lots of comedy-work right now, which is great to see. His Breaking Bad role has really paid some strong late-career dividends for him lately.

    EDIT #2: ...Aaaaaaand it would appear that I'm not the only one making "Belize"-jokes either right now, judging by that IGN article's user-comments section.

    Does Jim Rash do the voiceover for the family at the kitchen table in the Volkswagen ad? I'm almost 100% certain it has to be.

    Glad to hear you're feeling better. Maybe it's no coincidence you weren't feeling well during the fourth season. ;)

    Yeah, I thought both of their guest appearances were completely and totally wasted. I enjoyed them, but Goodman's character especially was just odd and felt like it was building to something, then ended with no payoff. Williams' character was just there, mostly unremarkable except during the Law & Order parody.
