It’s a bit hard to believe that Community, NBC’s little comedy that could, is about to debut its fifth season. Because it started out so strong, and so different, from a lot of network comedies, we were almost positive it wouldn’t last this long.
We were particularly concerned when creator and showrunner Dan Harmon was kicked off the show. But still, it kept on going and miraculously, NBC realized they had made a mistake in letting Harmon go and brought him back for season five.
That brings us to now with the January return of Community just around the corner and we couldn’t be happier about it. Naturally, we’ve got a preview for you.
Check it out after the break. Look for Community to return on Thursday, January 2 at 8 on NBC.
It should be obvious by now that in addition to movies and other geekery, we really love TV. We especialy love shows like Community and Parks and Recreation.
Fortunately, we’re going to get brand new episodes of both those shows tonight, as well as a new episode of The Office. To get you up to speed and ready for tonight, we’ve got some previews for the episodes, as well as a new video about another show we’re into: Hannibal.
Check out all the previews after the break. The fun starts tonight at 8/7C with Community.
Obviously, we’re very curious to see new epiosdes of Community now that Dan Harmon is off the show from the beginning of the season and Chevy Chase left part way through. Putting it bluntly, we’re not optimistic about the show’s chances.
We felt that way, that is, until we saw this new mash-up featuring the cast. Seeing it almost gives us hope for the new season. Almost. You should judge for yourself.
And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got a treat for Grimm fans: part one of a Grimmm web series. That’s right, check it out after the break and enjoy while you wait for the show to return on March 8th.
Oh, in case you didn’t know, Community returns on February 7th. Check out all the vids, well, you know the drill.
Presented without much in the way of comment is this fan photo, directly from the fine folks at Fan Art Exhibit, of Alison Brie as the First Avenger (aka Captain America). As fan-created photoshop works go, this one is pretty damn good.
The fact that it features one of our favorite actresses is just a bonus. Would this ever happen in real movie world? It’s unlikely. In fact, it’s pretty much impossible.
Would we pay money to see this on the big screen? Heck yes.

Two of our favorite actresses working today are Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie. So, to have them both in one movie is quite the accomplishment and makes us very interested in said movie.
The movie in question is the indie romantic comedy Save the Date. In case you’re not familiar, the movie is based on the graphic novels written by Jeffrey Brown and reportedly was very well received at the Sundance Film Festival last year.
You can check the movie out online today via IFC Films Video on Demand, SundanceNow, iTunes, Amazon Streaming, Google Play, Xbox Zune and PS3 PlayStation Unlimited. It will also hit theaters on December 14th.
Check out the trailer after the break. We love it. Let us know what you think.
We are not happy that Dan Harmon left Community. That unhappiness is made even deeper by the fact that NBC has pushed back the premiere of the show. We don’t get it (obviously the network doesn’t either).
Perhaps we should all watch this video where the cast explains what the heck is going on. Let’s hope it helps.
Yeah, we know, you don’t care that much about Whitney coming back to NBC for the Fall. However, you do care about Community. We know you do. . . and so do we.
So, it was with sadness that we must report that the return of both of these shows for the Fall has been delayed by NBC. The shows were originally scheduled to come back on October 19th and take up residence on Friday night.
However, according to the network, they won’t be. Here’s what NBC said about it:
“Given the success we’ve had for the past four weeks — including winning the first week of the season in adults 18-49 — we’ve decided to continue to concentrate our promotional strength on our new NBC shows that are scheduled Monday through Wednesday and have therefore decided to hold Community and Whitney from their previously announced premieres of Oct. 19.”
“Without having to launch these comedies on Friday at this time, we can keep our promotion focused on earlier in the week; plus, we will have both comedies in our back pocket if we need to make any schedule changes on those nights. When we have a better idea of viewing patterns in the next few weeks, we will announce new season premieres of Whitney and Community.”
Yeah, that doesn’t really bode well for one of our favorite show’s timely return, does it? Come on NBC, get your act together and bring back Community. . . soon.
