Weíve all known Community has been on its last legs for awhile. Between Dan Harmonís firing, Dan Harmonís re-hiring and less than stellar ratings, even the most hardcore fans have been willing to admit the expiration date isnít too far away. Alas, however, the battle cry of six season and a movie lived on for most! If only it could get there, everyone would be happy.
Anytime Annie has cause to yell "Booyah," it's a good day, right? And that's her response when Abed finds that thing they're looking for in the new clip from the season finale of Community, which airs tomorrow night. And we get to see how Professor Hickey reacts when someone asks if anyone has any rope.
Community will wrap up its fifth season this week as the fate of Greendale hangs in the balance. As the above teaser indicates, adventure awaits in what could be our last
Yo, Joe! Or Yo, Jeff as it were. Community has never been entirely bound to a live-action reality, as demonstrated by "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas." And next Thursday, the NBC comedy will go animated again, this time in the vein of the 1980s classic cartoon G.I. Joe.
Last night on E!ís The Soup, Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash did what they do best: skewer and satirize a movement in the cultural zeitgeist. In this case, the HBO series True Detective, which literally no one on planet earth can stop talking about and/or obsessing over. And we have to admit: their purposefully confounding clip is pretty funny.
We have a lot to look forward to from this week's episode of Community, which features guest appearances from Nathan Fillion, Criminal Minds' Paget Brewster, Terminator 2's Robert Patrick, comedian Kumail Nanjiani and Switched at Birth's Katie Leclerc.
Dan Harmon has returned to his flagship production, NBCís kooky meta-comedy Community, but unfortunately the fans may not have followed suit. Oh god: are we living in the darkest timeline, after all? Last nightís season five premiere ó which found Harmon back in the creative driversí seat after being fired prior to season four ó featured two back-to-back episodes and averaged 3.4 million viewers. But there's hope to be had, still, people of Greendale!
Itís been more than seven months since we last got to see a new episode of Community, but that all ends tonight in a fairly big way. With Dan Harmon once again taking the helm after being announced as the returning showrunner this past summer, the NBC comedy will be kicking off its fifth season with an episode titled ďRe-PilotĒ that changes just about everything we know about Jeff Winger, Britta Perry, Abed Nadir, Troy Barnes, Annie Edison, and Shirley Bennett.
When hearing that Communityís latest promo was a spoof of Mad Men, the first two thoughts that came to mind was the slow silhouette of Jeff Winger falling from a building, or something involving Annie, as Alison Brie is a pretty notable common thread between the two series. But Community took it one step better, not by spoofing Mad Men so much as spoofing the relatively useless and overly teasy Mad Men episode promos,
This week NBC has pulled out all the stops to promote Season 5 of Community. This week the network put together a special animated trailer that features Jeff Winger suited up and ready for the holidays.
Itís a repilot! Thatís actually the title of Communityís Season 5 premiere (ďRepilotĒ) and as Abed puts it in the newest trailer for the beloved NBC comedy, repiloting can be intense. This is followed by a great meta response from Troy commenting on the audacity of Zach Braff to bail on Scrubs after everything the series did for him.
Community Season 5 spoilers ahead! The new trailer for the anticipated fifth season of Community plays like a movie trailer, complete with a sad look at Joel McHaleís Jeff Winger losing it all, as movie people tend to do, before he becomes the center of a Scrubs-like overhaul on the series ó this, according to Abedís description ó and returns to Greendale to educate. The student becomes the teacher.
Because itís not set to return until 2014, Communityís fifth season premiere seems like itís much further away than it actually is. In truth, January 2 is less than a month away, which puts us in the weeks-to-go part of the countdown to the return of Greendale. The above teaser tells us as much, as it indicates that NBCís ready to start reminding people that school is almost back in session!
Awesomely enough, Banks' presence on the show won't be the only connection to Breaking Bad that Community will have this season. Earlier this month it was reported that Vince Gillian himself would have a role in an upcoming episode and will be playing a ďa smooth-talking gold-digger.Ē
David Cross is guesting on Community next season? Try not to blue yourself over this news, but itís happening, and I think I speak for all of us when I say, huzzah! The Arrested Development star is Greendale Community-bound, and joins the continuously growing list of guest stars set to appear in the NBC comedy at some point in its upcoming fifth season.
