Ever since Community‘s Oct. 19 premiere date was indefinitely postponed, the ratings-plagued cult favorite appears to be languishing in oblivion. But in another attempt to assuage restless fans, the show released the “Community Horror Picture Show,” a choose-your-own-adventure video that lets viewers select different timelines from the series’ first three Halloween episodes. Even though we’ve seen all of this material before, it does prove that the Community team are committed to satisfying their small but rabid following. Take a gander at the video below, run through the numerous storylines, and remember just how zany, intelligent, and strange Community really is.

Community dominated the comedy categories in EW’s 5th annual EWwy Awards, winning Best Comedy with 49 percent of the vote. We recently dropped by the set to hand-deliver the cast’s tiny golden Ewe statuettes so they could 1.) poke fun at the them, and 2.) sincerely praise/thank the show’s fans, who they know are the reason they’ve got a fourth season premiering Oct. 19 on NBC.
Watch Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, and Danny Pudi accept the Best Comedy EWwy in the first video below. In the second, McHale, Brie, and Pudi celebrate their individual EWwy wins by teasing the new season. READ FULL STORY »
Regrets? Chevy Chase has had a few — and not too few to mention. He wishes he hadn’t passed on Forrest Gump, Ghostbusters, and Animal House, but only “because they made huge amounts of money and I would be very wealthy.” He moans that sitcoms have “hideous” hours and are “probably the lowest form of television.” And more specifically, Chase says that agreeing to do Community was “a big mistake” — though he does say he “love[s] these kids, the cast.” So he’s got that going for him, which is nice.
The blunt pronouncements Chase made in an interview with Huffington Post UK this weekend aren’t exactly surprising — he’s long had a reputation for being curmudgeonly and difficult to work with. Still, it’s a little disheartening that he’s still denigrating the show that brought him back into the public consciousness — especially now that a Dan Harmon-less Community will be fighting for its life in a Friday night death slot.
What’s harder: Crossing the Delaware or keeping Community on air?
Funnyman (and recent EWwy winner!) Joel McHale is about to find out, channeling his inner George Washington as part of a new Rock the Vote commercial, directed by Adam Shankman.
The commercial will also feature celebs such as Neil Patrick Harris, Kathy Griffin, Jane Lynch, Miley Cyrus and Darren Criss, among many others.
“I felt compelled in this volatile and crucially important time to help guide ALL American people to the voting booth,” Adam Shankman said in a statement. “Like the majority of Americans, my voice only reaches so far; by coming together with my close friends and colleagues in making this video, we’re simply trying to convey one message: Every one of us matters. If you don’t vote, you can’t complain about the state of our country. Voting is a glorious right that we need to celebrate, embrace, and more importantly than ever, do. I can’t thank everyone enough who gave their time for this most important of causes.”

You know that kooky British TV show that Abed and Troy are always drooling over – Inspector Spacetime? The one that’s supposedly been running since 1962 and is a dead ringer for Doctor Who? Well, fans, now it’s more than just an in-joke; it’s the real deal, baby.
Community first made reference to Inspector Spacetime in the season 3 episode, “Biology 101.” Travis Richey, who played the titular inspector, ran with the idea and has developed his own web series called Untitled Web Series about a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time. The title’s a bit dubious, but that’s because his first attempt to pitch the show as Inspector Spacetime earned him a cease-and-desist order from the suits at NBC. So he took a note from Prince’s playbook and adopted a comically precise, tongue-in-cheek moniker while leaving the substance in tact.
The first episode clocks in at just four and a half minutes and has the low-budget, self-aware production quality that fans of Community are sure to appreciate. I’m skeptical of its potential — it works as a running gag but may not have the depth for much more than that — but it’ll at least placate viewers until Community starts up again on Oct. 19. Check out the first episode below. READ FULL STORY »
