It’s time I talked about Community. Continue reading
In case you’ve been encased in jello for the last two weeks, the Olympics have been on, pre-empting all of your regularly scheduled Thursday night programming and generally causing you to either avoid television or watch it obsessively. I voted for the latter because I’m a sucker for anyone who rides on quarter-inch-thick metal on the icy surface of a rink that may have piranha and kraken living beneath it (it’s a frozen pond in Russia, you can’t prove me wrong).

As we wait only somewhat patiently for the best ensemble cast on television to return, here is an article suggesting that NBC bigwig Robert Greenblatt has Chang’d his tune about Community’s future.
