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.
When it comes picking a cast for your indie comedy, you can’t do much better than the one director Maggie Carey has assembled for her film The To Do List. This one is a who’s who of upcoming and established comedy talent.
It features Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Alia Shawkat, Sarah Steele, Rachel Bilson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Donald Glover, Scott Porter, Andy Samberg, Connie Britton and Clark Gregg and tells the story of “close friends and a special summer project, loosely inspired by the real-life adventures of first-time writer/director Carey.”
The movie is set in 1993 as valedictorian Brandy Klark wants to shed her uptight image before college, so she assembles a to do list of all the “activities” she missed out on in high school. “Quickly realizing that she’s way out of her depth, Brandy solicits her best friends, older sister and burnt-out boss for their help and advice. If the group is going to complete the list by September they’ll need plenty of imagination and very open minds.”
The To Do List arrives in theaters on July 26th. Check out the trailer after the break.

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.
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.
