Community Watch: Season 3, Episode 5 - Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps image
Another great Community Halloween episode, yet I can't help but think that last week's "Remedial Chaos Theory" somehow stole "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps" thunder, even if just a little. I'm not implying that last week was a better episode (I'll just flat out say it was) but a part of me senses that had the two intricately, and similarly, structured shows not come out back to back this week would have seemed even more special. Yes, it was still special.

Community Watch: Season 3, Episode 4 - Remedial Chaos Theory image
In the preview to "Remedial Chaos Theory," I discussed how Community hasn't seemed to click yet this season. Sure, this year at Greendale has had its moments and it's still early but last week strayed a little too far from the winning formula - which with this show, is mostly a lack of formula mixed with the amazing cast that makes up the study group. Finally, this week proved that I haven't been constantly recommending this comedy as one of the smartest, funniest and most consistent on television for nothing. And how to they return to form?

Community Watch: Season 3 - Competitive Ecology image
Community opened it's third season with two pretty strong episodes. They did a great job wrapping up loose-ends, setting this year's tone and even creating (or hinting at) a few new roles and relationships for some of our characters. Oh, plus we've already had some great guest work from Michael K. Williams, John Goodman and especially Martin Starr in last week's episode. This weeks episode, "Competitive Geology," is heavy on the Chang but Michael K Williams is back as Professor Kane, so there's always that...

Community Watch : Season 3 Premiere - Biology 101 image
So, the third season of the smartest, most reference-filled, Emmy snubbed, comedy opens with a bunch of lies in song. Yes, a full on musical number that, in retrospect, takes place all inside's Jeff's mind. His perfect vision of Greendale without Pierce. It's quite perfect really, The wishes of Jeff Winger, not to mention the lies - something he may be a little familiar and too comfortable with - for what he hopes will be a normal, happy, sex-with-Annie filled year. Obviously, expect the opposite.

Joel McHale Trains Melissa McCarthy For Her Emmy Noms Announcement Gig image
You know what is even less exciting than awards ceremonies? Announcing the nominees for said awards ceremonies. It usually happens around the crack of dawn, with celebrities who look far too good for that ungodly hour patting all their peers on their expensively attired backs. At least the last few years they've been bringing in some good talent. This year, it's Melissa McCarthy's job and she goes looking for a few tips (from the wrong guy).

Interview: Joel McHale On The Independent Spirit Awards, Community, Spy Kids And More image
On his show The Soup, one of Joel McHale’s favorite targets is Ryan Seacrest, known to many as the modern day version of “The Hardest Working Man In Show Business.” Possibly without meaning to, however, McHale has become a candidate for that same title. In addition to working on The Soup, he has a lead role on NBC’s ridiculously hilarious show Community, has roles in upcoming films by David Frankel and Robert Rodriguez and, tomorrow, will serve as host of the Independent Spirit Awards.

Community Watch: Mixology Certification image
This episode was dreary, but also quite thoughtful and heartfelt. And it conveyed a message that may not be appreciated but will definitely resonate with the show’s (assumed) young demographic

TVMA Rant: Joel McHale Is A Cocksucker image
There are two types of people in this world, the cocksuckers and the straights. This, of course, has absolutely nothing to do with sexual orientation, more like a mindset kind of thing. The straights think positively about society. They generally see the best in others and hope we’ll all one day play hopscotch through a world-wide utopia free from mockery, scorn and ridicule
