Dan Harmon Slams Community Season 4 as "Weird"

at . Comments

Dan Harmon is officially back on Community - and wasting no time in stirring up more controversy.

The showrunner, who was removed from his post last year and then shocking brought back this month, said of Community Season 4 in his latest podcast:

"It was weird. I think I feel pretty comfortable in expressing that [Season 4] is not my cup of tea."

The 13 episodes produced by David Guarascio and Moses Port were not met with a strong response from loyal Community viewers, with Harmon going on about how he viewed them:

"It's very much like an impression. And an unflattering one... They replaced us with us with two guys who didn't know what they were getting into. They went to Comic-Con, and saw what was going on... and they went, 'F---,' and then I think they tried their best."

Following a bit of backlash, Harmon took to Twitter yesterday and semi-apologized for his remarks:

"I feel bad if I made anyone feel bad with my comments in harmontown. It's a dirty, personal comedy podcast, not charismatic for quoting... I like making stuff that pleases people, I like being honest about my feelings but I hate hurting other people, especially Community fans."

Community averaged around 3 million viewers last season and NBC picked it up for 13 more episodes. The sitcom does not have a place on the network schedule at the moment, however. What did you think of Community Season 4?
