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 we will definitely be watching — especially if it involves ridiculously outlandish popcorn pranks like this.
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” creator Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase. Harmon was fired as a result.) So I’m hereby publicly offering myself as an additional member of the gang. I can’t rap like Alison Brie, but I’m hoping they can find a spot for me on their team. [YouTube]
This morning Joel McHale visited with Kathie Lee and Hoda in order to promote a brand new episode of “Community” (on tonight at 8 p.m. EST!). He managed to force Hoda to drink a special Guinness and orange juice cocktail. Delicioso!
In three minutes, David Cross — taking over for Joel McHale on “Talk Soup” — manages to completely decimate the entirety of cat videos on the web, covering both adorable kittens, and cute fat cats. He also gets the sad desperation one feels when one wants to completely eat all the cats in the world. [YouTube]
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 alter ego?) It’s team Karate Dog vs. The Hilarious Hive on Jive Featuring Eldrige Cleaver (hey, their name not ours) in an all-out battle. [NYMag.com]
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 never before to throw their support behind Joel McHale, Chevy Chase and the rest of the crew attending Greendale Community College. Some of the more vocal fans — the guys over at College Humor — went so far as to team up with the cast to make this funny commercial for the faux school. [College Humor]
Ladies, I implore you, please watch this video of Joel McHale acknowledging being on People’s Sexiest Men list to the very end. The pay off is very, very, very worth it. [People]
