"Community" took over Hall H on the last day of the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, and the results were entertaining -- to say the least. From the moment Dan Harmon made his triumphant return to the NSFW questions posed by Dino Stamatopoulos to the final applause, every bit of the "Community" panel is worth a watch.Now you can watch it from the comfort of your own home -- no overnight lines necessary.Certainly one of the major highlights of the entire event comes right at the beginning when Harmon "flies" onto the stage wearing what appears to be a rather accurate Iron Man costume. Could anything say triumphant better?The rest of the panel is pretty entertaining as well. With comedy like this, could six seasons and a movie be so far-fetched?... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/07/comic-con-2013-community-panel-featuring-iron-man-and-many-laughs.html

Although NBC’s Community hasn’t found its ratings niche like the network would like, fandom is one of the reasons the show still exists today. With a truly hilarious cast and great writing, Community has become a cult-hit and is luckily still alive. Although Season 5 is still without a release date, the study group (or part of it) hit Comic-Con to thank fans and tease next season. No footage for next year was released, but a gag reel and a funny panel consisting of Dan Harmon (creator), Chris McKenna (writer), Jim Rash, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong, Danny Pudi, and Gillian Jacobs made it worth it, even if Joel McHale and Donald Glover weren’t there.
