So, Community's finale?

I feel I should comment.

I don't think I've ever been part of a fandom before with such a polarizing finale. I have fans of all stripes on my f-list and Twitter list, but it mostly divided like this:

1) Britta lovers: FAILFAILFAIL
2) Jeff/Annie shippers: OMGSQUEEEEEE!
3) Multi-shippers/non-shippers: What? But didn't Troy rock? Troy/Giant Cookie OTP!

So yeah, I'm in camp #3, and I'm still unsure what to think. (Other than that I may be developing a major celeb crush on Donald Glover lately.)

I WANT to be the one of the people who says: "Dan Harmon is messing with us, and he did all of that just to have a cliched season finale with multiple romantic cliffhangers." He did say he was pleased with the reaction (which was very angry as much as squeeful from the vocal fans)... But YET, I can't be completely confident that it's all on purpose. I love Britta, and I totally get all the wave of upset from camp #1.

MY PLEA TO ALL OF YOU: NO SHIPPER WARS, PLEASE. WE ARE BETTER THAN THAT.

I'm just glad community_tv is starting SUMMER SCHOOL next week. I have hope that the activities will take everyone's mind off of the way things ended and help us look forward to the season to come.
