'Community' Season 5: Death, darkness and the best episodes ever

"Community" wasn't really supposed to make it to Season 5. Think about it: The show had a true series finale at the end of Season 3! That was followed by a critically-hammered Season 4 that lost the show its biggest name:Chevy Chase. Any normal series wouldn't have a chance after all of that.Fortunately, "Community" has never, ever been normal. And it's starting to look like that may pay off with Season 5 being one of the series' best.We're four episodes into a 13-episode season, so it's hard to say for sure where everything is going to land, but these few installments are among the show's strongest. After all, "Community" has rarely gone more than two or three episodes in a row without a dud in there. For every "Remedial Chaos Theory," there's an "Advanced Gay."Thus far in Season 5, however, we're seeing none of that. "Repilot" managed to successfully restart a show that had... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/community-season-5-death-darkness-and-the-best-episodes-ever.html

If 'Community' has a future, will Walt Goggins be part of it?

Fans who turn into tonight's (Thursday,Jan. 16) "Community," or catch up on it later on the DVR, will get to see "Justified" star Walt Goggins guest-star as Mr. Stone, an investigator with a connection to former study-group member Pierce (who was played by ex-cast-member Chevy Chase). The very straight-laced Mr. Stone gives a lie-detector test to the study group, causing them to reflect on how they view themselves and their place in the world.While Mr. Stone turns out to be a bit different than fans may initially expect, playing the part made Goggins a little nervous."I said yes to two things," he tells Zap2it. "I'm a fan of 'Community'; I've been a fan for a long time. I haven't seen every episode, but I've seen enough. I think they're some of the smartest people writing today. Dan [Harmon] is an incredibly bright man."It was fun. It was definitely an opportunity for me to put myself in... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/if-community-has-a-future-will-walt-goggins-be-part-of-it.html

'Community': Walton Goggins and Pierce's farewell in 'Cooperative Polygraphy' ... also, sperm

"Community" said goodbye to Pierce Hawthorne in a ridiculous, talkative and surprisingly touching tribute, "Cooperative Polygraphy." There probably was no better way to remember the oft-awful character than with a polygraph machine, Walton Goggins and one last Pierce-inspired fight. Also, sperm.Pierce is now a lava lampIt's been an ongoing -- albeit subtle -- joke on "Community" that Pierce is a member of a strange religion that takes inspiration from Buddhism, Scientology and whatever the writers were smoking when they thought of it. So of course the funeral would involve blue uniforms and the vaporizing of Pierce's essence.True to "Community" form, no matter how silly all of this was, it did signify mourning (not just "Troy and Abed are in mourning!"). The study group really was sad to lose their racist, foolish, occasionally antagonistic friend. All of the arguments that came out later prove that.Walton Goggins seeks the truthDid someone murder Pierce?The answer is no,... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/community-walton-goggins-and-pierces-farewell-in-cooperative-polygraphy-also-sperm.html
