Community: Journey to the Center of Hawkthorne

NBC's clumsy handling of Community's third season came to a head during last night's three-episode dump, including the season finale.

By itself, the first of the three ("Digital Estate Management") would have made for a fine standalone episode, and easily one of the best of the season. This is probably why NBC stuck an episode of 30 Rock between it and the two final episodes.

Yeah, probably.
