Quick Thoughts: COMMUNITY, "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations"

Maybe Community fans can calm down now that we've gotten at least one season four episode that vaguely resembled the Harmon era, which is to say that "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations" was good but not great.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the deeply personal stuff involving Jeff and his estranged father, and I thought the homage to prison breaks/Shawshank was amusing, but the actor playing Jeff's half-brother was beyond annoying and robbed those moments of any real subtly. Other than that, the episode was decent enough.

While I wasn't afraid of Community losing its way thanks to the new showrunners, I am hoping that they've righted the ship enough to keep fans happy so I don't have to keep reading how the show's ruined for eternity.
