…And hilarity ensues. Adam Quigley, blogger for /film and AlwaysWatching, posted an observational tweet that involved Alison Brie and her accidental upskirt that occurred in this season’s Halloween episode of Community. He posted the tweet, it went into the wild, and he was convinced that none of it would actually reach Ms. Brie.
Or is it I couldn’t care less? It doesn’t matter. The awards are happening and I’m overwhelmingly ‘meh’ about it (oxymoron, I’m aware). It’s enough for me to get riled up when the Oscars nominate anything and get it wrong. The last thing I need is to get my blood boiling over the Golden Globes, an award show that the industry hardly pays attention to.
Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, Troy from Community, and former writer for 30 Rock, performed to a sold-out crowd at the hipster haven, Slim’s in San Francisco. He gave us a mix of his stand-up comedy and then followed it up with a concert of his hip-hop songs that have been making its rounds on the internet. Here are ten things I took note of at the show.
I’m posting this Dan Harmon interview purely for anticipation of tomorrow’s Christmas episode. It’s been called the best episode of the season. If that’s true, then that episode would make it this season’s “paintball” episode, an episode that is so mind-blowingly brilliant, you actually start hating people for not watching it.
Community, a show that I have defended all throughout this blog, has been picked by Emily Nussbaum of New York Magazine as this year’s best television show, beating out stellar dramas, like Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire, as well as quality sitcoms like Louie and 30 Rock. As an avid Community fan, I can tell you now that all of the other fans are rejoicing in unison.
All great shows have alignment charts, like this one and this one. It’s a simple way to show how the characters relate to each other and what their motivations are. It also shows that the characters in the show are well-rounded. From the look of the quotes on this alignment chart, it isn’t older than the Halloween episode.
It also means that a very forgetful studio executive is not getting fired. NBC has renewed 30 Rock for another season and Parks and Recreation is returning from its hiatus. That gives us 6 shows that NBC can’t fit into a 2-hour bloc. Instead of spreading their shows throughout the week, NBC is thinking about a 3-hour line up of comedy.
