Community Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts
Community returns with the same insane energy that we all love and weren't even sure would ever see again!
Community Regional Holiday Music
For 2011, Community treats us to another odd parody of a Christmas special, though this time the target of their mockery is non other than a certain popular musical based show on Fox.
Community Community Put on Hiatus for Midseason
NBC announced their midseason schedule today, and notably absent was critically and viewer acclaimed Community. As many know, shows not returning for their mid-season runs are nearly a sure sign of cancellation, especially when the show constantly does poorly in the ratings.
Like many shows before it, Community might finally succumb to the fact that it's just too smart of a show for normal television. The humor too too well written and too funny for the general audience, whom seeks a much lower and simpler form of humor.
The internet though, still steaming after 2010's Late Night Wars debacle, has already taken to the web to voice their disapproval. #OccupyNBC has already started to crop up. The best way though would be to write a sternly written note to NBC via their contact forms and be sure to voice it out to their Twitter.
Community features another hilarious episode and Jeff's hospital lie to get out of helping is brilliant in execution. Why didn't Annie remember that Troy and Abed only live in single bedroom apartment? Unfortunately, I was out of town so I didn't get to experience #AnniesMove on Twitter in realtime, which they seem to have really blown up on. Curiously, though, it seems like they built out a lot of the actual apartment to justify a lot of steady cam work. And for the young ones, the Dreamatorium is completely decorated exactly like the Star Trek holodecks, while candy cigarettes were an old and hilariously bad product that was banned a long long time ago.
It's been a busy few weeks with a few cancelations and a few more premieres. Tonight, we see the return of The Walking Dead with its second season, and earlier this week saw the return of Psych for season 6.
With two weeks in the can for television (minus Sunday of course), we can finally take a look at the post premiere numbers and see how our TV cancelation betting pool is going.
Another Thursday night, and we're are starting to fall back into the usual routine. We did have one new premiere though, in How To Be a Gentleman
How to Be a Gentleman
Overall, this present tense narrative show is one of CBS's weaker attempts this season. While it does have a bit of humor, none of that cast is very compelling and the writing in general is subpar. Despite the fact it follows The Big Bang Theory, I don't think it's long for this world.
Community Biology 101
The wonderful underdog Community returns in full fashion for its third season launching with a hilarious musical number akin to the randomness that is Glee. Now while the musical number suggest that this might be a less insane year, the show quickly shows that it will defiantly be anything but less insane. Of course the whole idea of a normal year, with musical, is merely a fantasy Jeff has as they get ready for the next semester.
As 2010 comes to a close, many writers take the time to write about the best shows of 2010. They often write about the popular and well received shows, categorizing them into the "best" field, but more often than not, it's the shows that are NOT being watched that deserve words of praise and encouragement.
So in light of this fact, I bring you my list of the top 5 shows that you didn't watch in 2010 in the hopes that you will make them part of your 2011 watching resolutions. The following shows are "on the bubble" are all severely underrated and could use a little bit of love.
Community The Psychology of Letting Go
In tonight's Community, Jeff faces his immortality while Annie and Britta expose a deep seeded jealous rivalry.
There's not much to say about the episode. There was plenty of great dialog in the form of the insane teachings of Reformed Neo-Bhuddisim as Jeff tries to break down Pierce's deeply disturbing religious beliefs. It was quite humorous to see Britta and Annie mockingly reverse personalities as their jealously erupts, culminating in a fan fueled fight between Annie and Britta covered in oil.
- "Even a Ferrari needs a tune up." - Jeff on his body
- "You in the boobs."
- "Everyone likes pelicans. They bring babies." - Annie
- "Bodies, lIke the real temple of doom, it represents the inconvenient fact that all good things, be it people or movie franchises, eventually collapse into sagging sloppy piles of hard to follow nonsense."
- "Wow, you guys are real downers. I can't believe I made out with both of you." - Jeff
- Britta: "And you know the real reason we raised more money in 5 minutes of oil wrestling. Than in two days of fundraising?"
Annie: "Because men are even grosser?"
- Someone was having a BABY in the back of a truck during the oil fight scene. Later on you can see the happy couple just standing around looking at the child. I had to watch it again as I caught a glimpse of it the first time and was confused.
- Headline for the newspaper: A dis "ass" ter of global "proportions" hit the quad wednesday when two do- "good-looking" -ers wrestled with an unknown issue involving oil. Looks eco-"friendly" to us, ladies!
- Betty White talks Inception with some natives.
