Community Finale: Can Pierce Be Redeemed?

Community creator Dan Harmon knew doing another paintball episode would invite criticism and inevitable comparisons to Season 1's "Modern Warfare." And that's exactly why he did it. "It was the thing we weren't supposed to do," Harmon tells TVGuide.com. "But I followed my usual instincts, to do the thing you're really not supposed to do, and tried as hard as I can to make it work. Because, although I fail plenty, the only time I succeed is when I'm doing that. When I try to do an impression of the way other people are supposed to do things, I usually fall on my face."

'Pop! Pop!': Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Magnitude on 'Community'

Over on The Wrap today, John Sellers has posted a fun and surprisingly insightful interview with Community showrunner Dan Harmon (follow him on Twitter already, seriously) and staff writer Adam Countee, who is credited with the original idea for "Magnitude," the one-man party machine who shows up to Jeff's apartment for Chang's party in the season 2 Valentine's Day episode. Since he first showed up, Magnitude has morphed from a throwaway joke into another staple in the cast of hilarious background personalities at Greendale, joining the illustrious ranks of characters like Leonard, Starburns and Vicki. But back then, he wasn't named Magnitude (short for "Magnetic Attitude," which Harmon says they picked for its telling nickname-within-a-nickname premise) -- he was named Poochie. And his signature catchphrase, the universally applicable and delightful "Pop! POP!", was different at conception, too: It was "Yo-yo-yo-yo-yo-yo-yo-yo!" //www.buddytv.com/articles/community/pop-pop-everything-you-ever-wa-40266.aspx

'Cougar Town' Stars Pop Up on 'Community' -- Will the Character Crossovers Go Both Ways?

NBC has released a picture from next week's 'Community' season finale (paintball part deux, part deux) that appears to confirm our suspicions that a multi-network 'Community'-'Cougar Town' crossover episode is in the works. This development marks an awesome next step in the referential love-fest that's been going on between the two shows for well over a year. What's the photo? Check out 'Cougar Town' actors Dan Byrd and Busy Philipps standing behind 'Community' actors Donald Glover, Danny Pudi and Alison Brie in the background of this picture.

Josh Holloway — Community's Top Gun

Sawyer was always Lost 's funniest character, rivaled only by Hurley, and Holloway brought his dry wit and penchant for nicknames to NBC's genius collegiate comedy as the Man with No Name (other than Black Rider) in a Spaghetti Western-themed sequel to last year's paintball shoot-'em-up. "He's really good-looking — like, network-TV good-looking," observed Danny Pudi's Abed in one of the script's many sly asides... //www.tvguide.com/News/Josh-Holloway-Community-1032750.aspx?rss=breakingnews

He's just hot," Alison Brie, who plays Annie, says on a recent press call. "Everybody just kind of would blush when he came into the room. It was very exciting.
