We’re glad to see Community is back and we’re liking it so far now that Dan Harmon is back at the helm. Tonight is an all-new episode, featuring awesome guest star Walton Goggins, so we’ve got previews for it for you.
In addition, there’s a new episode of Parks and Recreation tonight too and yes, we’ve got previews for that one too. Both shows are really funny and hopefully both will survive the often fickle TV audience who loves a show at first and then vilifies it later on for no real reason other than, we suspect, boredom. These shows deserve better.
Anyway, check out the previews after the break. Look for things to kick off first with Community tonight at 8/7C on NBC.
Ah, Community. The little show about a ragtag study group at a community college called Greendale. We’re very happy you’re still around.
To be honest, we loved the show from the beginning, but were never quite sure it was gonna last too long. It’s quirky and quirky doesn’t always sell. Fortunately, in this case, it did and the show is about to launch its fifth season this week.
To get you primed for the return, we’ve got a bunch of previews. Check them out after the break.
Look for Community to return to NBC on Thursday, Januray 2 at 8/7C.
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.
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.
We love Community. You love Community. It all makes sense. So, this gag reel from the last season of the show should be as entertaining to you as it was to us.
Sure, things won’t be exactly the same without creator Dan Harmon working his magic on the show next season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t relive some great moments of the past season — especially if they’re in the form of a very funny gag reel.
Who doesn’t love a good gag reel? See, actors are only human too. They mess up just like you and me. They’re just better looking when doing it.
Check out the vid after the break. Community returns, full cast intact but minus Mr. Harmon, this Fall on NBC.
Good news fans of quirky and eccentric sitcoms, both Community and 30 Rock will be back next season. NBC announced late yesterday that both shows will be coming back with 30 Rock getting a final seventy season of 13 episodes and Community going to a fourth season of 13 episodes as well.
It’s nice to see NBC allowing 30 Rock to wrap things up and it’s also nice that the network is giving Community a chance to stay on the air, even if the ratings don’t necessarily support it. Although, when the comedy returned from an extended hiatus the ratings had improved quite a bit making it one of NBC’s highest rated comedies.
With a renewal now secure, the next question, about Community at least, is if both creator/showrunner Dan Harmon and co-star Chevy Chase are going to return. In case you haven’t been following the story, they’ve reportedly had quite a feud going on with Chase apparently storming off the set and Harmon berating the actor at the show’s wrap party.
According to reports, both Chase and Harmon have reputations for being “difficult,” which in Hollywood-speak pretty much means they are dicks. However, its difficult to imagine Community without Harmon or Chase as each make a significant contribution to the show. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
It’s been no secret for quite some time now how much of a thorn veteran comedian Chevy Chase has been in the side of just about everyone working on NBC’s Community. From rumors of a drunken Chase showing up late to shoots, to his overall difficulty to work with from the rest of the cast, there seems to have been tension for quite some time.
Now, it looks like things have escalated even further as creator Dan Harmon and Chevy had it out at the season wrap party last weekend, which resulted in an angry (and relatively inebriated) message left on Harmon’s voicemail. Here’s a bit of backstory from Deadline.
The chronology of the events, corroborated to me by multiple sources, involves Chase walking off the set of the show on the last day of shooting last month without filming one of his scenes, which reportedly was to close out the season finale.
Then at the wrap party, Harmon got up and gave a “Fuck you, Chevy” speech in front of Chase and his wife and daughter, and encouraged the crew to join him in saying “fuck you” to the actor. Chase left immediately and later left Harmon a profane-laden voice message, a portion of which found its way to the Web after Harmon played it in front of other people.
We’ve got the audio below which you can check out. Who’s to blame for all of this? Nobody can really tell, but we certainly know that it’s going to effect next season on Community as to whether or not we’ll even see the return of Chevy’s Pierce Hawthorne.
Our bet? Bill Murray steps in to replace him and nobody mentions the incident again.
