NBC must stand for “nothing but confusion”, “needlessly bully Community” or (since Community is their only good program) “nothing but crap”.
Community is being jerked around by the powers that be, once again. For a show with witty humor, outstanding pop culture references/homages, and being the best campy show on television, NBC sure does treat Community and their fans like hot garbage. This time, NBC decided that the season premier would no longer be October 19th (tonight)… instead it would be “To Be Determined”.
This is unacceptable.
Shows like Community don’t come along very often. Nearly every show on TV is derivative of something that is already on TV or has previously been on TV. Two and a Half Men is the biggest show on television? Really? How much enjoyment can the American people get out of a laugh track sitcom? Excuse me if I’d like some variety…
Community is unlike anything else. This rag tag group of community college students join together as a part of a study group that get into various situations throughout their college career. They spoofed the Apollo astronaut mission by having an episode where the study group is trapped in a KFC chicken space simulator. They had a campy episode that parodied war movies as the study group started a campus wide war between a faction of blanket fort builders (The Legit Republic of Blanketsburg) and pillow fort builders (The United Fort of Pillowtown). There was even an episode that parodied FOX’s hit show Glee, as each member of the study group was systematically recruited throughout the episode to take over for the original glee club, who all met an untimely demise on their bus trip to regionals.
What’s not to love? It’s the SNL of sitcoms. In fact, after finding out that Community had been postponed again, the following video was posted on the Community facebook page.
If NBC knew what was good for it, Community would be on the air every week, not struggling to find air time while NBC tries to promote some crappy show like Grimm.
There is now no release date for Season 4 of Community. I hope that it’s not far away…
