'Community' video: 5 seasons of movie references in one video

"Community" references a lot of movies. From "Pulp Fiction" to "My Dinner with Andre," the films mentioned on the show run the gamut of years and styles -- sometimes in the same episode.In honor of this eclectic mix of movie love, a truly passionate fan -- Anne Thomas -- of the show has made a super-cut of all "Community" movie shout-outs from the series. The password? It's "movietime."The question is: Did any movies get missed? The only one we caught was "For a Few Dollars More," the sequel to "A Fistful of Dollars" -- the inspirations for the second iteration of paintball on "Community."Leave any other omissions in the comments section below!"Community" Season 5 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/03/community-video-five-seasons-of-movie-references-in-one-video.html

'Community' Season 5 video: '80s cartoon PSA from 'G.I. Jeff'

"Community" Season 5 has a treat for former 1980s cartoon watchers: In the upcoming "G.I. Jeff" episode, the characters become G.I. Joe characters and even includes a PSA at the end. Watch the ridiculous video here.For this PSA, Britta (as "Buzz Kill") and Abed (as "Fourth Wall") teach a couple of kids about the evils of graffiti. Sort of. In case you're not familiar with this particular form of "educational" television, many cartoons in the 1980s and 1990s -- including "G.I. Joe" -- ended their episodes with brief skits like this. Characters from the stories would step out of their world to tell normal kids about what was right and good in this world. Some of them were almost as funny as this "Community" video. For example, one time the "Thundercats" warned a couple of youngsters that sheltering from a thunderstorm under a tall tree was a bad idea.

'Community': Six seasons and a movie reportedly being discussed

"Community" has been shouting about "six seasons and a movie" ever since the phrase appeared as a throwaway line in Season 2. Three years and several surprising renewals later, everyone from creator Dan Harmon to production company Sony is speaking of Season 6 and a follow-up movie.Could "Community" Season 5 just be a lead-up to greater things?Harmon certainly thinks so. In a recent interview with HitFix, Harmon makes it clear that he's all-in when it comes to more "Community.""If they do a sixth season, I have to participate," Harmon says. "And having done that, if the movie has to be made out of clay and duct tape in my basement, then that's how the movie will be made, because there has to be closure. The title of the book about the show is not 'Community, An Interesting Journey into a Show No One Ever Watched.' The title of the book is obviously going to... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/03/community-six-seasons-and-a-movie-reportedly-being-discussed.html

As Community Contemplates a Season 6 Renewal, Talk of a Movie Grows

  Will "six seasons and a movie" come to fruition? As NBC mulls the fate of the Greendale gang, the Community clarion call — first uttered as a joke by Abed ( Danny Pudi ) in a Season 2 episode — may be moving closer to reality. According to insiders, at least one director has already been considered to helm the inevitable Community feature: Justin Lin , who directed the last four movies in the Fast & Furious franchise. Lin has also directed several episodes of Community.       http://www.tvguide.com/News/Community-Season-Renewal-1079686.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'Community' Season 5, episode 11 gets animated for 'G.I. Jeff'

"Community" is no stranger to animation. Prior to Season 5's "G.I. Jeff" (airing Thursday, April 3), the bizarre comedy had already aired two mainly animated episodes: "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" (stop-motion) and "Digital Estate Planning" (8-bit computer graphics).For the Season 5 version of animation, however, episode 11 is taking the "G.I. Joe" route in tribute to the 1980s animated series.What's going on here? "This [episode] has a very specific story reason for it," executive producer Chris McKenna tells EW.com. "I don't want to give too much away, but our characters find themselves in a 'Wizard of Oz'-type journey through the world of 'G.I. Joe' ... There's a mystery that Jeff in particular has to get to the bottom of."Considering that Jeff Winger would have been about the right age to enjoy "G.I. Joe" cartoons back in the day, that does make sense.Exactly how much "G.I. Joe" will make it into "G.I. Jeff"? "We do a typical... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/03/community-season-5-episode-11-gets-animated-for-gi-jeff.html

'Community' Season 5, episode 10: 'Advanced Advanced Dungeons and Dragons,' the sequel

As Abed himself says right at the beginning of the "Community" episode, "Advanced Advanced Dungeons and Dragons," it's hard to create a worthy follow-up to greatness. And like so many sequels before it, "Advanced Advanced Dungeons and Dragons" fails to capture the excitement and heart of the original.What brings out the dice this time?Professor Hickey is grouchy (more so than usual) because his son, Hank, hasn't invited him to his grandson's birthday. It seems that there is bad blood between these two, mostly because they just don't get each other. But when Hickey mentions that Hank likes to play Dungeons & Dragons, the study group knows it's time to spring into action. After all, didn't they save Fat Neil from suicide with the first game? Or is that up for debate?Whatever the case, Hank (played by "Arrested Development" actor David Cross) agrees to hang out at Annie and Abed's apartment for a game. Unfortunately... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/03/community-season-5-episode-10-advanced-advanced-dungeons-and-dragons.html
