Community takes a sad look inside Abed's mind" href="http://io9.com/5982902/community-takes-a-sad-look-inside-abeds-mind" class="pp_image"> The first Dan Harmon-free Community aired last night. And it was definitely something that aired on television, that we all laughed at in various points. Look, it wasn't bad and it wasn't good. The series premiered with a strange Inception -style storyline that took the audience right out of the group and right into Abed's head. Which... haven't we already done this before and slightly better in "Virtual Systems Analysis" ? But into Abed's mind we go, where we're able to explore his "safe place" — a world where everything is a sitcom and no one will leave him. And of course, that Abed Incepted himself revealing another TV world, starring the Greendale Babies . It was scary — check it out. http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/cCjqciItmUk/community-takes-a-sad-look-inside-abeds-mind
When ratings numbers are released on Friday, there's a good chance that "Community" fans will be displeased. But why should we dwell on a negative when there are so many positives? The Nielsen ratings may ignore this show, but Twitter does not. In fact, Twitter may have gone a little "Community"-wild during the Season 4 premiere. http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/02/community-season-4-premiere-takes-twitter-by-storm.html

On Thursday, Feb. 7, after a show-runner shake-up that ended with the departure of series creator Dan Harmon, the long-awaited fourth season of NBC's unconventional comedy "Community" makes its debut.Set at less-than-stellar Greendale Community College -- led by the flamboyant Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) -- it focuses on an eclectic yet supportive study group, led by disbarred lawyer Jeff Winger (Joel McHale)."We hit the ground running," Rash -- wearing an abnormally subdued shirt and tie -- tells Zap2it during a break on set at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, "with a pretty insane 'Hunger Games' sort of catastrophe at Greendale, keeping in stride with the fact that bad ideas happen all the time."Also on tap for the future is a Thanksgiving-themed episode, in which Winger meets his estranged father."James Brolin?" says Rash of the casting. "It's perfect as far as the prototype for what would look like Jeff's dad."As for what the frequently cross-dressing Dean is... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/02/community-season-4-jim-rash-says-greendales-dean-is-a-very-confused-man.html

Believe it or not, the Feb. 7 premiere date of "Community" Season 4 is approaching rapidly. What new insanity will this season bring?While not all of this can be predicted (thankfully), there is now a short video clip from the season 4 premiere, showing us about a minute of what is to come. That minute focuses on something called "The Hunger Deans." Of course.What are some of the highlights of this video?First of all, the joke at the beginning in which Joel McHale, Jim Rash and Danny Pudi pretend to be editing NBC's midseason dramas is rather amusing. After all, those shows have gotten a whole lot more publicity than "Community" has lately.There is a class about the history of ice cream? Obviously, I should have attended community college.Is it possible to hack a piece of pink paper? "Community" wants us to believe that the answer is yes."Follow me tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo..."Unicorn men! Katniss! All others... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/01/community-video-watch-the-hunger-deans-from-the-season-4-premiere.html
