I think it’s safe to say that we are all pretty horrified about the new Peeple app, which is basically a Yelp for individuals. The app will allow users to give ratings to people that they know using a star system, which may sound pretty familiar to some fans of the show Community. The cult comedy featured an episode last year all about an app that allowed users to give rankings to other people, and the dystopian repercussions that followed.
Community fans hoping for a seventh season of the show are not going to like what Joel McHale had to say about that prospect. In an interview with MetroWeekly unearthed by Vulture, McHale said that new deals for the cast would be cost prohibitive. “[A]ll of our contracts were up after six years,” he said.
It has been less than a week since the well-received Community season (series?) finale aired, which seems like more than enough time to start asking if there will be more Community in some form. Which is exactly what EW Radio host Jessica Shaw did in her interview with series creator Dan Harmon (and his Ricky and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland) at the ATX Festival in Austin today.
Time to lock and load: Another extremely colorful installment of Community is headed your way.
Gentlemen, assume the party once again: Koogler is back.
The hard-partying, good-time guy that Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz played in a season 5 episode of Community will make his return to Yahoo’s community college-set comedy, EW has learned.
Five episodes in and it feels like Yahoo’s techno-zombie Community has already gotten into the swing of things. The latest episode wasn’t a season premiere, or a bottle episode, or a meta state-of-the-student-union on the show’s evolution, or really a Very Special anything. The status quo was maintained and instead it was two solidly funny plots filled with plenty of typical but still very amusing japery, something that will definitely be needed in the middle stretch of the sixth season.
Chang and the Dean, the Dean and Chang. Both characters have been around since the show’s start, hanging around the edges of the group, always good for a bit of drive-by absurdity, and occasionally hitching their trailer to whatever adventure the main cast is engaged in. They can both be hilarious but only in moderation, lest they be the ingredient that overpowers the rest of the comedy stew. “Queer Studies and Advanced Waxing,” however, gives them more front-and-center attention than they’ve gotten in seasons.
If Community had a motto it’d probably be something like “More with less.” That is, if it isn’t “Six seasons and a movie” or a quote from Bloodsport or “Weird, Passionate, and Gross” translated into Latin. Actually, there are probably about as many possible mantras for the show as there are classes in Ruffles the Dog’s course load—including Greendale’s own “You’ve already been accepted”—but suffice it to say a certain narrative thriftiness has always been one of the big guns in Harmon & Co.’s arsenal.
When The Office debuted ten years ago, it was not a very good sitcom.
