‘Community’ Season 6's Finale Was Bittersweet and Beautiful, But Do We Want Season 7?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick June 2, 2015 @ 1:26 PM
That old familiar standby of Community signing off has again arrived, perhaps a bit more under the radar than in previous years, but nonetheless completing the first half of its #SixSeasonsandaMovie pledge. Meta as ever, “Emotional Consequences of Broadcast Television” said a heartfelt goodbye to Season 6 as it envisioned a potential Season 7, but would fans (or Dan Harmon) even want it?

‘The Bachelorette’ Season 11, Episode 2 Recap: Two Women Enter, One Woman Leaves

by Matt Singer May 19, 2015 @ 10:00 PM
In yesterday’s recap, I predicted that the 25 men on this season of The Bachelorette would choose Britt to be the woman they would all simultaneously date in a way that is not at all weird or uncomfortable. My wife, who got me hooked on this show in the first place and has a sixth sense for its plot twists, predicted it would be Kaitlyn, and she was right. My big mistake: Buying in to the narrative presented by The Bachelorette producers that most of the men were there for Britt, and were utterly smitten by her vivacious charm and outgoing demeanor. In doing so, I forgot the cardinal rule of The Bachelorette: Everything we see is a distorted version of reality, coaxed into being by the show specifically to swerve viewers with shocking twists. Trusting anything shown in The Bachelorette is like trusting a magician when he tells you he really sawed a woman in half.
