A Better Gym Selfie

I have so many conflicting feelings about gym selfies. I usually just sort of frown at them, shake my head, and move on. They’re the kind of thing that other people do, and while I totally respect their right to do it, I just don’t understand why. This came to a head this morning when,…

Jennifer Lawrence & Alison Brie Almost Starred In An Awesomely Horrible TV Show Together

Let’s all pour one out for missed opportunities.

Before “Mad Men” and “Community,” Alison Brie was just another starving actress looking to break into the biz. And before Jennifer Lawrence won over our hearts as Katniss Everdeen from “The Hunger Games,” she too, was hoping for a big break. It’s safe to say…

Donald Glover Cryptically Explains Why He Left “Community” — On Hotel Stationery? [Updated]

Donald Glover is leaving “Community” five episodes into the current season, but no one, including Glover, has given any explanation as to why. The once super active Twitter user has been pretty quiet on social media lately and some suspected he was choosing to focus on his rap career (as Childish Gambino). But in the…

Frisky Q&A: “Community”‘s Gillian Jacobs Loves “Dominick The Donkey” And That, My Friends, Is Absurdly Awesome

Gillian Jacobs is a truly awesome human being. When she’s not therapizing her cohorts as Britta on “Community” or killin’ it on the local comedy scene in Los Angeles, she’s taking time to answer a few of our random questions about everything from celebrity crushes to personal theme songs and more. I’ve always thought Gillia…

Yay! “Community” Is Almost Back!

How do I love “Community”? Let me count the ways. There’s Abed and Troy’s Inspector Spacetime hijinks, Jeff Winger’s sassy bon mots, and Annie’s pervasive neuroses. Britta’s awful “therapizing” and Chang’s scheming. “Community” is one of the best-written, funniest shows that nobody watches, and after a terribly long hiatus, it’s back, Thursday February 7. and…

I Really Want To Hang Out With The Cast Of “Community”

I’ve always been a fan of the show “Community,” starring dreamy Joel Mchale and a cast of other talented comedians. But after watching their series of season four bloopers, I definitely want to hang out with them. Their set looks like so much fun! (Though it might actually not be, given the feud between “Community”…

Donald Glover Will Play Tracy Morgan Playing Tracy Jordan on “30 Rock”

Call it an enigma wrapped in a mystery stuffed in a donut. “Community”‘s Donald Glover has signed up to play Young Tracy Jordan on an upcoming episode of “30 Rock.” Actually, it’s going to be during “30 Rock”‘s second-ever live episode, so that should be pretty exciting. Apparently, this isn’t Glover’s first go-around as Tracy.

Style Stealer: Gillian Jacobs’ Casual Cool

Gillian Jacobs plays uber-feminist Britta on one of my favorite TV shows “Community,” which means that her character never dresses in a skirt (too feminine, for sure). That’s why it’s so nice to see Gillian all dolled up in this casual chic ensemble at the Los Angeles reception of the Tribeca Film Festival. We’re especially…

Who do you think knows more about pop culture — Chevy Chase or Joel McHale? Find out by watching this special pop culture quiz, in which two teams made up of the cast of “Community” attempt to answer rather difficult pop culture questions. (By the way, anybody remember the name of Arsenio Hall’s fat rapper…

“Community” Tries to Save Itself With Greendale Community College Ad

Maybe you’ve heard about how one of TV’s funniest shows, NBC’s “Community,” has been shelved for the remainder of the fall season, put on hiatus indefinitely because of poor ratings. Cast members and fans of the show are worried that the mid-season yank may mean the show is never coming back, and are rallying like…

A New Season Of “Community” Is the Best Birthday Present Ever

Guys, my birthday is September 21 (yes, write that down in your iCals and your Palm Pilots and the margins of your math textbooks), and just in time for my b-day (well, actually the day after), the best show ever, “Community,” is going to return!

Senor Chang Will Frighten and Amaze

If you’re not watching “Community” yet, I’m going to give you an assignment: Start watching it already. It’s one of the funniest shows on TV, and that’s in large part to the work of one Senor Chang, played by funny dude Ken Jeong. Jeong, who proves that you can switch up your life path at…

The Girls Of “Community” Bust Out The Retro Lingerie

Community” is hands down one of my favorite shows on television, and Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs are so, so brilliant in their roles as uptight Annie and posh girl Britta, respectively. So it makes me a touch sad that one of the few ways they can get space in a magazine is to put…

Betty White Blesses “Africa” On “Community”

It seems there’s nothing that Betty White can’t do. She’s a first-rate comedienne who is equally talented at playing your sweet grandma and swearing up a storm. And on last night’s episode of “Community,” White once again showed her range while rapping with Donald Glover and Danny Pudi during the closing credits of the show.
