    • It’s pointless for them to promote their programs in other places than the US since all the viewers abroad aren’t counted for ratings anyway.

  • Yes! He needed to be a teacher otherwise it would be weird.

  • Kind of wanted the “welcome back, kotter” theme song to play doing the commercial. Would have been an awesome throw back.

  • Booo. I wanted him to be a successful lawyer who also reps Greendale. Jeff with money and success is just more compelling.

  • I’m still hung up on the fact that Jeff went to Greendale to get a bachelor’s degree, and he graduated with only an AA degree. Seems like a mistake there – was it intentional?

  • Pottery sure the best party of that promo was Troy and Abed hiding in the furniture… was cracking up already. Looking forward to this season but so sad to see Donald Glover go.

  • I’m glad Harmon changed his mind and made Jeff a teacher. The heart of the show is Greendale, and I never liked hearing about how Harmon wanted to drift away from that. I think season 5 will be this show’s last season (based on ratings) and I think ending the show with everyone’s graduation is the best way to handle its conclusion.

    Plus making Jeff a teacher adds an entirely new dynamic to the show. I just wish they would have made this a full season instead of 13 episodes. Happy to have Harmon back even though the new showrunners did a great job during season 4 :)

    • NBC will never allow that. They’re the stingiest when it comes to letting clips be viewed in other countries.

      • It’s now on YouTube. Search: “COMMUNITY TRAILER SEASON 5 – OFFICIAL”, and you should be able to find it. (Consider yourself prodded. ;-) )
