'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.

'Community' Season 6: Dan Harmon is comfortable in 'eternal limbo'

"Community" was never supposed to last this long. Despite the eternal fan rallying cry of "six seasons and a movie," few thought that that goal was actually a possibility. Now, however, "Community" Season 6 is close to happening -- but is hardly a sure thing.Show creator Dan Harmon is OK with that. He is used to uncertainty when it comes to his comedy.During a Reddit AMA mostly focusing on Harmon's other project, animated series "Rick and Morty," the writer took a moment to answer a "Community"-oriented question about the possibility of another year after the current Season 5 ends."You can count on any news about 'Community's' renewal happening out-of-the-blue and last minute in May or so. We have to start accepting at this point that God designed 'Community' to exist in eternal limbo, where every coin you drop lands on its edge and birds fly backward. I have become comfortable there. I set up... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/03/community-season-6-dan-harmon-is-comfortable-in-eternal-limbo.html

'Community' Season 5 episode 8: 5 MeowMeowBeenz for 'App Development and Condiments'
