We're five episodes in on the Dan Harmon-less 'Community,' and though there's been some moments here and there, it's been a rough season, not helped by having themed episodes that are coming out months after the fact. Like tonight's "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations," which is a Thanksgiving episode in March. At least we'll get to Christmas before July.
'Community' dropped a late-night surprise on us yesterday from the PaleyFest panel, revealing that the show's out-there concept episodes were far from over and a late season episode would see the Greendale gang re-imagined as puppets. In the immediate future however, 'Community' will come to another milestone as this Thursday's "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations" will introduce Hollywood icon James Brolin as Jeff Winger's dad, so how would you like an early sneak peek?
Even without series creator Dan Harmon at the helm, 'Community' season 4 has gone to some unique places in only the first four episodes of the season, soon to address a major milestone this Thursday as Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) comes face to face with his father for "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations," but where might 'Community' go that it hasn't before? Why, an all-puppet episode with 'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander, among other spoilers gleamed from PaleyFest!
Whether or not you enjoyed the first four episodes of 'Community's fourth season, the first under new show-runners Moses Port and David Guarascio, no doubt this Thursday's "Thanksgiving" episode "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations" will prove a big test of quality for the new episodes. Jeff will achieve a milestone as he finally reconnects with this father William (James Brolin), but will the new season be able to make it work? Check out a preview of "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations" inside to find out!
Last week's all-new 'Community' episode "Conventions of Space and Time" may not have been a huge with with the critics, but we're trusting in showrunners Moses Port and David Guarascio to find their footing with our beloved 'Community.' And after two episodes away, this Thursday's "Alternative History of the German Invasion" will return us to our beloved Greendale, but is trouble already on the way? Check out a sneak peek of the latest 'Community' to find out!
It remains to be seen if 'Community' will swing back into critical favor after last week's "Conventions of Space and Time" failed to win over critics, but there can be no doubt that the impressive list of season 4 guest stars have been fun to watch already. Whereas last week featured a brief turn from 'Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer and 'Bridesmaids' star Matt Lucas, this week's "Alternative History of the German Invasion" will introduce Malcolm McDowell as history teacher Professor Cornwallis! Get a sneak peek of McDowell's first 'Community' appearance inside!
Uh-oh, do we detect a bit of Chang in the wind? Even with NBC's abysmal ratings of late and the notoriously-troubled 'Community's fairly moderate performance of late, fans eagerly await news of a potential fifth season. And even though NBC might not be in the best position to discard a potentially profitable series, 'Community' star Ken Jeong has given himself a parachute by taking a role in ABC's forthcoming comedy 'Spy.' Find out how much things will Chang inside!
While tomorrow night's all-new 'Community' will boldly take the Greendale seven where they've never been before, attending an "Inspector Spacetime" convention with sexy results, fans were still left hanging by this past week's "Paranormal Parentage," which left off with Jeff finally calling his long-lost father! Hollywood icon James Brolin will finally make his appearance as Jeff's dad William in March 7 episode "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations," but how would you like a first look inside?
