I'm reading the Community writers AMA.

There are spoilers to be gleaned from it, but here's what one of the writers had to say about the possibility of coming back for season 5.

Quote:
NBC has generally struggled at creating new comedies, so we think we have a pretty good shot at coming back. It all comes down to what their new shows look like and how much confidence they have in them. Around April or May, NBC will look at the 10 or 15 comedy pilots they've produced and they'll decide, "well, should we try to shove five of these pieces of ******* down our viewers throats, or should we just shove four of them and then give the nerds their Community?"

It's October 19th.

Of course. I'm sorry I failed you all.

Joel McHale is doing stand up at my school. I didn't go when Donald Glover came about a year or so ago, but if I can get a ticket I want to try to see this one.

My roommate has the Community seasons on dvd. I just watched some episodes with him. Pretty good.

The paintball is the best.

I miss Malcom in the middle. The fact it is not on DVD is a travesty.

Yeah and it is the only one available. The rest if the seasons may not see the light of day due to the use of certain songs in many episodes.

only 364 shopping days until Stamkos' next birthday!


http://www.hulu.com/watch/454464

the episode...unsettles me. I get that it's an attempt to introduce the series to new people, and therefore comes off as unsatisfying and weird like the season premier of Parks & Rec a while back where they spent a few episodes in the wild (metaphorically), but since P&R is still on, and has come back to where they were before, I guess it's just something that NBC thinks works.

Well since Dan Harmon was out I was a bit nervous. The laugh track at the start had me very uncomfortable until I realized it was just part of Abed's subconscious and then it was brilliant.

I thought it was a good start honestly.

I think the laugh track was a brilliant move. It addresses the meta issue of concerns over the show changing as there's a perception that NBC wants it to be their Big Bang Theory.

However, the episode had a **** load of callbacks and while it may be helpful to familarize new people to the basic concepts of these things, it came off feeling artificial to me. I mean the episode is called 'History 101', you get basically the rundown on everything.

Too much time was spent with Abed's meta joke and that changed the feeling of the episode as well. Take away several of the bits after the opening that didn't really go anywhere in the scheme of things and filling that time focusing on the show proper would have helped tremendously.

Look at great episodes like Journey to Hawkthorne or Remedial Chaos Theory. Those episodes are non-standard, but they went all in on their concepts. This one tried to do everything and didn't really work for me. Chang's role was the only thing not explained and it was a highlight because the episode didn't go out of it's way to explain that disaster of a person.

I agree, the Laugh-track shtick was kinda funny the first time, and even started to rub me the wrong way halfway through that bit. Would've preferred that to just have been an opening gag and then did away with it...

Still, there were things to like about the episode, so I'm optimistic about the show...

I am gonna' double post because I am a legend and I reserve that right. What games are everyone playing right now?

I burned myself out on SWTOR awhile ago, attempted to play Guild Wars 2 with my pack of peeps and it just didn't stick due to lack of end game content. Everyone I know is spread around playing different crap. I am playing a lot of Tribes Ascend right now, but looking for something new to play on PC. Someone inform me of your current vices.

I used to play Minecraft quite a bit last semester. I haven't touched it since though.

What do you guys think of my NHL 13 HUT team? I'm debating the lines. I like speed, so I'll just list the speeds. I let the computer switch my lines up when there's a game going. I never do it manually, so I'm wondering... Do you think I should switch my 3rd and second lines? The way I'm thinking is, if that third line is against the other team's 3rd pairing, they'll blow right by them. But, does the computer automatically give them crappy minutes? Will they see much ice time? Does that outweigh the perceived advantage?

These are the players speeds by rating.
87 - 91 - 87
84 - 84 - 88
87 - 89 - 85
84 - 80 - 84

I have the 88 RW on the second line, just for the perceived balance I guess

This year there really isn't a downside as players don't expire after a set number of games.


Community Writer Andy Bobrow explains what he felt was wrong with the season premier.
Quote:
What sticks out to you to as being too ambitious as far as moments in the opener go?

In the episode, we're doing an Abed fantasy sequence, a movie parody, animation, recasting Pierce, the multi-cam trick, Abed descending into a psychotic break, a movie parody, Dean in a dress, establishing Troy and Britta's relationship – which we didn't do very well. It just ends up being sort of a free-standing scene – trying to do a C-story with Shirley and Annie. When I look at that whole mess, I guess I can say, on the positive side, it's amazing that we worked it all together because there's so much going on. Then, I [feel] we shouldn't have done that much stuff. When I look at it, the critiques that I'm anticipating are "This is a sign of new showrunners trying desperately to assure die-hard fans that we're still gonna be the same." Especially, that we threw in animation. We tried to do an Abed's descent into madness [story] that admittedly doesn't work half as well as Abed's Christmas madness story. Maybe the review that I'm anticipating is there's a hint of desperation in the season opener. There's too many tricks and because of that, we're robbing from actual storytelling.

If we did it over again, I wouldn't have done a Troy/Britta story or a Shirley/Annie story. I would have lumped everyone into The Hunger Games, and just done those two stories. Some version of people competing to get into a class, paired with Abed seeing the world differently in multi-camera. It would have just made it two stories instead of five.

I loved the Muppet Babies reference. I used to get up on Saturday mornings as a kid when the channel was nothing but...

...just waiting for Muppet Babies to come on.

k guyz, i got an amazing idea.

pda that works underwater


You know what I sort of miss? When people had PDAs and they'd refer to having an 'assistant' in a very roundabout way where they'd try to make it seem like they were a big enough deal to actually have a human assistant, but it was clear they were talking about their PDA.

Memo: if you're going to do a Harlem Shake video from this point forward, congratulations, I don't want to see it.

Who here is man enough to admit they love the Pokemon?

I played White2 a few months ago and I am now getting through Soul Silver. I am probably going to pick up Diamond since I skipped that gen to hold me over until X/Y in October-ish. So who else loves their Pokemans?

I haven't played any Pokemon games since the first generaton, but I'll admit I like Pokemon.

The question was if I love them.

No, I love you baby.
