Dan Harmon Slams Community Season 4

Never one to mince words, Community creator Dan Harmon has spoken out for the first time after screening the cult comedy’s polarizing Season 4 — which, for the uninitiated, moved ahead without his specific brand of “genius.”

The returning showrunner revealed during his latest Harmontown podcast that he’d finally gotten around to watching his creation’s latest run. And…? “I guess I already knew this, but apparently I’m a genius,” he shared. “I think I feel pretty comfortable in expressing that [Season 4] wasn’t my cup of tea.

“It’s not somebody doing what they do,” he explained, referring to his one-off replacements Moses Port and David Guarascio. “It’s very much like an impression — an unflattering one. It’s 13 episodes of people doing, ‘Derpy, derpy, der, I’m Dan Harmon, der.’”

Conceding that his fill-ins simply “didn’t know what they were getting themselves into,” Harmon mused: “They went to Comic-Con, saw what was going on… and went, ‘F–k.’” Still, he noted, “They tried their best.”

Harmon recently spoke to E! Online about his impending plans to binge-watch Season 4, saying that whatever the outcome, he wouldn’t “be a jerk about it.

“I know there were some great writers working on that show who bled with me for Seasons 1, 2 and 3,” he added. “The worst thing I can do is fart in their direction at all.”

Do you agree with Harmon’s take on Season 4? Are you eager to see what he return to the helm does for Greendale?
