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.
Even though things looked a bit dire last year when NBC put one of our favorite shows, the awesome Community, on extended hiatus, all now is well in the TV Universe again as the show is set to return tomorrow night. To commemorate this great occasion, we’ve got a ton of videos to share with you today.
Among them are vids where Gillian, Yvette, and Joel (who wants to make out with all of you) discuss the big return of the show. Plus, take an early look at Greendale with some sneak peeks and get your fix of the Dean and Jeff as Jim Rash joins Joel on the NBC lot. That’s Academy Award Winner Jim rash to you.
Check out all the videos (and a coupe extra pics) after the break. Look for Community tomorrow night (Thursday) at 8/7C on NBC.
Human Beings everywhere rejoiced yesterday, as NBC released its spring schedule for its Thursday night programming, which included the triumphant return of the little show that could, Community.
Looks like we may get our six seasons and a movie after all. Hearlded by many as the funniest show on television right now, Community is on its third season and stars the likes of Joel McHale, Donald Glover, and Chevy Chase.
While its premise may be simple- the show revolves around a group of friends making their way through community college- the show has had episodes about parallel universes, paintball wars, zombie attacks, and D&D games.
After airing its Christmas episode in early December, Community was put on an indefinite hiatus. While the cast and crew actively assured fans via Twitter that filming was continuing, no one could really be sure whether remaining episodes would ever air. News of casting continued to flow in this week, and now with NBC’s announcement fans are most definitely relieved to have Community return to their televisions.
While Parks and Rec goes on a bit of a break until April 19th, Community takes that time slot and 30 Rock is bumped up to 9:30 PM. When Up All Night wraps up in April, Parks and Rec returns.
NBC is under major scrutiny from fans as of late with their ballsy decision to pull fan-favorite Community from their Spring lineup. With that, fans have had a major outpour as to how pissed they are with NBC’s decision. Even TV Guide proved how important the show is to its dedicated community.
Now, the geniuses behind the show itself are working for your sympathy itself by putting together a campaign video to safe the show’s fictional setting, Greendale Community College.
Sure, there are a few character moments here, but also some sincerity as to where this show is going, and that it may never come back. Take a look at the heartwarming video after the jump and join the fight by signing the Save Community online petition.
Sometimes news comes through that will just ruin your day. For fans of the NBC comedy Community, that day may just be today. On Tuesday, NBC announced their midseason schedule, and while a few shows got an extension, one fan favorite may be facing the chopping block at the end of the season.
In order to make room for shows they believe in such as Up All Night and 30 Rock, the network has decided to not order any new episodes of Dan Harmon’s Community for the midseason, leaving them on hiatus until further notice. Whether or not this means the show is getting cancelled has yet to be decided, but it does mean that we may not get any more Community until as early as the Summer.
Also going through some changes at the network: Whitney will be moved to Wednesday nights into a block with Chelsea Handler’s new sitcom. Prime Suspect has also been put on the bench until further notice, and the legal drama Murphey’s Law got a full season order.
With the network rocking last place in the ratings, it only makes sense that they would make some drastic changes to stir up the status quo. Fans are already crying out to make sure their favorite show doesn’t get the axe, but it may take a lot in order to convince NBC otherwise.
Take a look at the new midseason schedule after the jump.
Summer is finally coming to a close, and for most that means heading back to school or waking up early to take their little ones to school, but the good news is that all news shows are returning to the primetime lineup!
Some people are excited for things like the brand new look of The Office or new comedies like Up All Night and Whitney to start, but we can tell you none of that compares to what we are looking forward to in the upcoming third season of NBC’s Community.
Last season, we had things like an Apollo 13 spoof, another paintball tournament, and some amazing cameo guest stars, but from what we can tell in this new extended trailer for the season, that’s only the tip of the iceburg in what the students and staff at Greendale Community College have to offer.
Check out the brand new teaser after the jump, featuring a peek at an incredibly austentacious-looking musical number, and some of the most intense dialogue performed by John Goodman since the final season of Roseanne after the jump and catch the season premiere of Community on September 22nd.
Just when you thought NBC’s breakout show Community couldn’t get any better after such guest stars as LeVar Burton, Betty White, Josh Holloway, and Malcolm-Jamal Warner, but it looks like the ante is about to get upped.
Word is now coming in that John Goodman will have a whopping 6-episode stint on the upcoming third season of the show. Here’s the scoop from TV Line.
Goodman will recur in at least six episodes of NBC’s quirky comedy as Vice Dean Laybourne, the head of Greendale’s air conditioning repair school, and he will become a major foe for both Dean Pelton (played by newly promoted series regular Jim Rash) and our favorite study group.
That’s right, the man who has The Flintsontes, Speed Racer and The Big Lebowski on his resume will be coming to one of the best written and funniest shows currently on TV this season, predictivaly making this another stellar season for creator Dan Harmon and his cast.
NBC’sCommunity is one of those show that just keeps getting better and more interesting with each new episode. Fortunately, its coming back next season for more fun with the gang at Greendale and we’ll get to experience more of the hijinks of Jeff, Britta, Troy, Abed, Shirley, Chang, Pierce and Annie.
But tonight, things are getting intense with the second part of the “paintball” season finale that’s sure to bring the awesome. Of course, we’ve got previews for tonight’s episode to share with you right here.
I case you’ve forgotten, here’s the scoop so far: The Greendale gang is in the midst of an intense paintball war and things are just getting exciting after the elimination of Josh Holloway’s gunslinger last week. This week, get an early taste of “Operation: Troy’s Awesome Plan”, see Alison Brie freestylin’ it and much more.
Also, tonight there’s a brand new Office and double the Parks and Rec fun with two episodes. All this, and more, starts with Community at 8/7C on NBC.
Check out all the Community goodness after the jump.
You may know her best as Trudy Campbell on Mad Men, or recently as the neurotic publicist in Scream 4, but for fans of NBC’s Community she will always been Annie Edison. Taking time out of her busy schedule shooting a movie, Alison was kind enough to sit down for a press interview to give us the scoop on what we can expect from the upcoming two-part Community season finale.
The episode centers around an end-of-the-year picnic where the dean announces plans for a “small, quick, safe, game of paintball.” What follows is an epic battle in which alliances are formed and broken, and friendships are put to the test.
The finale will include a very special cameo from Josh Holloway, most famous for his role as Sawyer on Lost, who arrives as a mysterious character in the game. TV spots and online clips have already begun to hint at a certain chemistry that will form between Holloway’s character and Annie.
Alison herself confirmed that there were sparks on set that the writers wanted to play up in the final episode. And yes, she also hinted that there were to be a few Sawyer-esq lines for the Lost fans.
