    Despite a great performance by Paget Brewster, COMMUNITY’s 6th (and final?) season was the weakest. The only great (and actually memorable) episode was BASIC RV REPAIR AND PALMISTRY.

    I’ll watch GREASE LIVE and maybe VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN. I won’t watch MACBETH until I see a previous version. The ones that interest me the most are Orson Welles’ and Roman Polanski’s.

    • Karl Lanthanimos

      kurzel’s version is brilliant too, dude. the cinematography was outstanding.

    • Harrison Barr

      Seriously? Basic RV Repair? That’s gotta be the weakest season 6 ep, and I too thought it was a relatively weak season, but compared to 4? Ugh.

      But it’s your opinion, and I respect that.
