Community creator Dan Harmon, who said a bunch of harsh stuff about season four of the show over the summer and instantly apologized, is saying a bunch of harsh stuff about that Harmon-less season again. While he previously compared watching the fourth season to watching his family get raped, he's making analogies between season four and serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer this time around.

In honor of Futurama ending its run on Comedy Central this month, executive producer David X. Cohen took to Reddit yesterday to answer questions from all comers. Here are some of the most interesting tidbits to come out of it.
On the ending of the series:

Comedian Eugene Mirman (Bob's Burgers, Flight of the Conchords) rose to the challenge and crafted the following crazy 300-word monologue, which you can go to Reddit and support before it's too late and Samuel L.

Given how difficult Reddit AMAs are to digest sometimes, we've gathered up all the best answers from C.K.'s session today and posted them below. Enjoy:

You may know comedian Eddie Pepitone from WTF with Marc Maron, Conan, Last Comic Standing, or the brand new documentary that he's the subject of, The Bitter Buddha. The movie's playing in select theaters now and available on iTunes, and to promote the film, Pepitone took to Reddit for a question-and-answer session. Easily the best part was a question from comedian James Adomian as Eddie Pepitone's angrier brother Freddie Pepitone, a character Adomian has performed onstage alongside Pepitone:
Adomian: EDDIE! It's your estranged brother FREDDIE PEPITONE! Thought you could hide from me? Too bad – I'm VERY active in the Reddit community! I saw that fuckin movie you [...]
