Community has never prided itself on romance - or on being one genre for more than one episode at a time - but the constant wasted opportunities and neglect for Jeff Winger and Annie Edison have tested those shippers’ last nerve. Given that Community would much rather keep teasing and reviving the much less popular Jeff/Britta pairing - complete with a half-hearted wedding proposal leading up to the possible series finale - it is quite alienating and baffling to a rather vocal part of an already small audience.

Community is a show that could have benefited quite a lot from a Jeff/Annie relationship, both creatively and commercially. Yet Dan Harmon’s missteps and downright cowardice on this front are the direct opposite of what Michael Schur and his writers keep accomplishing a half-hour later. It’s no wonder that Parks and Recreation is up to seven seasons and may get to craft a real ending in advance, while Community crosses its fingers again for its long, satirically promised sixth season - a.k.a. another chance to disappoint all its shippers.

Hmm yeah I read this article and there is one glaring problem: Parks and Rec has actually gotten pretty boring and the ‘gigantic milestone’ that is Leslie’s pregnancy was eyeroll inducing.

In general the show suffers from giving its protagonist everything she wants. Parks and Rec is that kind of happy go lucky, positive energy kind of show, so it’s ok that everything is happy & stable but boring - but Community is a completely different, still completely lovable show.

Also, just because one portion of a fandom is “more vocal” than the rest does not mean they deserve to dictate the direction of the show, or that the show owes them plot development above the other fans.
