There comes a point in the life of any TV show (and especially any TV sitcom)—usually around the fourth season, shockingly enough—where it becomes less important to create groundbreaking TV and more important to manage the brand.
The last season of Community was not a letdown, but I could tell that it was made for their fans. No one new to the series could start watching this season and really enjoy it.
Todd VanDerWerff’s review of “Heroic Origins” explains this and talks about how “there’s nothing wrong with still loving Community, but it’s become almost entirely a show about getting you to love Community…”

Alcohol makes people sad. It’s like the Lifetime movies of beverages.
"Which one am I?"
you have the right to do whatever you want. Nothing you say or do can be used against you by anyone but we’d really like it if you came with us. Please and thank you.
If you love the Law and Orders, watch Community’s ‘Basic Lupine Urology’.
"All TV shows have relationships with their fans that operate almost like long-term romantic relationships. There’s the initial ardor, the period when you realize that it seems like there’s nothing this person can’t do to make you happy, then the long period where you slowly realize you know all of this person’s tricks. I’d say a lot of us (including myself) are currently in that third period right now. But there’s always hope: What usually follows the “I know everything this person can do” period is the point where you realize how lucky you’ve been to have them all along and how silly it was to expect them to continue to surprise you as much as the first day you met. “Lupine Urology” isn’t my favorite episode of the series, but it reminds me just how much I like having this show around and how sad I’d be if it left."
I do have relationships with my television shows. It’s pathetic.
