Britta'd it.

Dan Harmon‘s return to Community has made a big difference. While he was away, the show’s attempts to tickle the that little flap of skin at the base of our skulls that triggers warm, fuzzy nostalgia feelings were more of a punch than a tickle. Now that he’s back, they’re doing an episode entirely animated in the style of G.I. Joe and it doesn’t feel like a punch to the back of the head at all. Thanks goodness he and his tickly brain fingers are back.

It seems that NBC now knows that there is no Community without Dan Harmon. And knowing is important.

I Britta’d that one.

Tonight, NBC airs a holiday themed episode of Community that also acts as a Glee parody. So what? Sounds about par for the course, right? WRONG! What’s different about tonight’s episode is the fact that it’s the last installment before the show goes on hiatus! No, it hasn’t been officially canceled, and the network could bring it back later this season, but we here at Screen Junkies like to prepare for the worst. That’s why we’ve stocked an entire bunker full of canned foods and K-Y Jelly. It’s also why we’re preparing ourselves for the fact that Community may not be coming back.

With that in mind, we decided to pay tribute to one of our favorite characters, Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi), the only way we know how: by hastily compiling a gallery of animated Gifs. Enjoy.

Dinklage FTW In ‘Knights Of Badassdom’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/dinklage-ftw-in-knights-of-badassdom-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/dinklage-ftw-in-knights-of-badassdom-trailer/#comments Mon, 25 Jul 2011 15:17:57 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=221879 The man can even make LARPers likable.

The trailer for Knights of Badassdom is here and it does the impossible. Makes LARPing look awesome.

The movie stars Ryan Kwanten, Summer Glau, Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn, Danny Pudi, and Jimmi Simpson as a group of LARPers who unwittingly open a portal that allows a demon to enter our world. They then have no choice but to pick up real weapons and vanquish the beast before it destroys them all. Fun premise but I’m having a difficult time suspending my disbelief.

I refuse to believe girls as hot as Summer Glau hang around LARPers. Unless they’re selling something.

If you’ve succumbed to peer pressure and have been watching “Community” on NBC, you know that it has a Special Relationship with the ABC show”Cougar Town.” It culminated last night on “Cougar Town,” when none other than Abed himself, Danny Pudi, could be seen in the background during a scene on the show. And if you watch the clip above, you’ll see that it’s not just Pudi picking up some work as an extra, he’s in character as Abed, which quite frankly is making me a little dizzy.

This isn’t the first co-mingling of the two series. Dan Byrd and Busy Philipps, the principals of the scene above, appeared as extras on an episode of “Community.” I … I need to sit down. (The Washington Post)

Of course not. You're normal.

Danny Pudi, who plays audience surrogate Abed on “Community,” recently sat down with Vulture to discuss what lies ahead in coming episodes and the show’s fate at the end of the season. And he’s very informative about the former.

“Community,” despite almost universal critical acclaim, has had a hard time finding its audience. (Sound familiar?) Consequently, it’s uncertain when, if ever, the show will get picked up for season three. Pudi thinks the cast will know sometime next month, but with Comcast‘s recent takeover of NBC, even that timeframe is uncertain.

In the nearer term, Pudi revealed buddies Abed and Troy get involved in a congenial love triangle in next week’s Valentine’s Day episode, Abed’s having a birthday, Abed and Troy get on campus TV, and Abed takes a class on “Who’s The Boss?” Apparently, he only likes to talk about the things that are happening to his character in future episodes. What a narcissist. And, piling on the Abed in this piece, we have the above clip where Abed speaks “gnome.” There’s your Abed fix, dear readers.

In non-Abed-related “Community” news, it seems that a devoted fan of the show took out a Craigslist ad to start his own study group to “meet and have crazy-cool adventures.” He said that any takers can fill any role on the show, except for Abed. This guy called Abed. I guess this is Abed-related “Community” news after all. Oh well.

Here’s a screencap of the post. Double click the image to enlarge. (Vulture)

‘Community’ Halloween Episode Preview http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/community-halloween-episode-preview/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/community-halloween-episode-preview/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 This morning I have for you a preview of the upcoming Halloween episode of "Community." Zombies have taken over Greendale. The producers have also managed to make all the characters' costumes funny again, as well as indicative of their unique personalities. Jeff is so vain that he always goes as something effortlessly attractive. This year he's David Beckham. Brilliant. And wait until you see Senor Chang. "Community" is without a doubt one of the best shows on television, and it's perplexing to me that no one watches it. You and I might watch it, but everyone else is tuning into "The Big Bang Theory" and not DVRing the little college sitcom on NBC at the same time. Some affiliates across the country are even dropping it from their lineup due to the fact that no one in their city gives a crap. That is not a good sign, folks. Once affiliates start dropping programs it's not long before it gets yanked from the schedule altogether. Let's watch this Halloween episode and save this show from going the way of "Arrested Development." Check out the preview after the jump...

‘Community’ Christmas Episode Pulls a ‘Rudolph’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/community-christmas-episode-pulls-a-rudolph/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/community-christmas-episode-pulls-a-rudolph/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Community" creator Dan Harmon's Christmas wish just came true. No, not a third season, stupid. He gets to live his dream of creating an entirely animated episode of his sitcom. This season's Christmas episode of "Community" will be created in the pain-staking stop motion style of the Rankin/Bass animated specials we all grew up on. Harmon recounts how this opportunity presented itself. “It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do but, I never anticipated having the ability to do it,” he admits. But “Jeff Gaspin at NBC woke up one morning and thought "Community" should do an animated episode. I was like, ‘Well, that’s weird, because that’s the kind of stuff I’m usually suggesting and guys like him veto.’” Sounds awesome. Early buzz already has this (and the Halloween episode) topping last season's Paintball Episode. Sure, it will strain a few animators' eyes and backs, but I feel like it's worth it. Dibs on the Gillian Jacobs doll! (EW)
