A big part of Community’s appeal is its ability to seamlessly traverse the many tones a television sitcom can take in a half-hour. On a dime, Community can turn from broad comedy to dark, wacky situations to bittersweet. These tonal shifts can be alarming to anyone unfamiliar with the series, but to those of us who have stuck around it feels like a reward to watch an episode like “Bondage and Beta Male Sexuality.” It could’ve been the simple story of man trying to score with the woman he has the hots for, but instead we’re treated to an existential crisis and a friendship in need of some attention. It would be easy to imagine these scenarios as devoid of comedy, but Community expertly knows where to sneak in a laugh or two in the most serious of moments.
Ian Duncan has always been one of my favorite characters, »

Winter Break is over, and it’s time to file back into the halls of Greendale for a new episode of Community. What will you find in there? A ghostly and ghastly one-man show by Chang (Ken Jeong). A harsh punishment for Abed (Danny Pudi) at the hands of Professor Hickey (Jonathan Banks). And a big battle over Britta. Yes, Professor Duncan (John Oliver) makes his play for the former foot model (Gillian Jacobs) with the help of his buddy Jeff (Joel McHale). But maybe Jeff’s heart isn’t into it. Because maybe it wants Britta for itself. Press pause on Good Luck Chuck, »

The list of cast members attending this year’s PaleyFest is here, and it’s full of fan favorites. Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina will be there to (hopefully) talk about where their on-screen romance is going, Josh Holloway and Henry Ian Cusick will be among the actors appearing on the 10-year Lost reunion panel, and ABC Family fans should be happy to hear that three out of four Pretty Little Liars will be spilling secrets at their show’s panel.
Tickets for the individual panels can be purchased here, but take a look at the entire list of who’s speaking below first:

Director: David Soren,
Running Time: 96 Minutes
A snail wants to be superstar racer. It’s the kind of pitch that could be generated in a studio meeting along with countless other [blank] wants to be [blank]. A penguin wants to be a pilot. A worm wants to be a foot model. A tortoise doesn’t want to be a home owner. Anyone with an ounce of a brain could come up with non-stop plots for life based on the formula of something not being able to do a certain activity and their struggle to prove everyone else wrong. Another word would be “lazy”, and although Turbo isn’t a complete right-off, the plot truly holds the entire film back.

Anyone who’s ever waded into the murky debate surrounding our nation’s increasingly heated spoiler-alert culture, rest assured: This week’s Community feels you.
Titled “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking,” the episode partially revolves around a battle between Abed and Britta, with the latter trying to spoil Game of Thrones Bloodlines of Conquest – a fantasy book series turned TV show — for the former, who watches the series but hasn’t read the tomes. This war escalates to the point at which Abed soundproofs his ears and effectively goes deaf. That, in turn, leads him to fall for an actually deaf fellow student, »

The couple that sings together, stays together. Gabrielle Union and fiancé Dwyane Wade sang karaoke for a cause Monday at South Beach Battioke at the Fillmore Miami Beach, which benefitted Shane Battier's Take Charge Foundation. Union strutted her stuff to "I've Got Friends in Low Places" while reigning NBA Mvp LeBron James sang "Back That A-- Up" and brought the house down when he, Wade, and Udonis Haslem grooved to Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." The Hangover star Ken Jeong also made an appearance with a convincing Guns N Roses rendition. Prior to showing off her country side on stage, »
Chevy Chase is gone and Community creator Dan Harmon is back. Will some of the viewers return as well? Will the show be renewed for a sixth season (and a movie) or will it be cancelled instead? We shall see.
Community follows a suspended lawyer (Joel McHale) and other students at the Greendale Community College in Colorado. The rest of the cast includes Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash, Jonathan Banks, and John Oliver.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Anthony Stokes on why The Mandarin was the best villain of 2013....
2013 was a year that showed much promise, and when it came to the Oscar contenders, it delivered in full. Honestly I can't look at a single Best Picture nominee and say it doesn't deserve it, and there were very few snubs (the big ones being Rush and Fruitvale Station). However, where 2013 really dropped the ball was the summer blockbusters. Like clockwork each and every one of them disappointed in some way, while smaller movies sneaked up and made an impression (see The World's End, Pain and Gain, This Is the End, etc.). Nevertheless, one blockbuster from last year that I believe is under-appreciated is Iron Man 3, and it also happens to have the best villain in The Mandarin.
Iron Man 3 is a classic case of not being able to please the fans. It's darker, more focused, and more character-based then its predecessors, »

"Community" loves its guest stars, and the sixth episode of Season 5, "Analysis of Cork-Based Networking," brings them in by the droves. Nathan Fillion, Brie Larson, Paget Brewster, Kumail Nanjiani and Robert Patrick all feature.
Check out photos from the episode for a preview.
Britta (Gillian Jacobs) is happy about something.
It's not her hide-and-seek skills obviously.
Who is Prince Varthos? And why does Abed (Danny Pudi) care that he is adopted?
Nathan Fillion (as a janitor?) will make everything all right.
It's time for the midterm dance, which may mean Chang (Ken Jeong) and some "Thriller" dancing.
The study group is not amused.
The Dean (Jim Rash) tries to placate them.
Does it work? Or does Annie still need a hug in the rain?

Community bids adieu to not one, but two main characters in this week's hugely entertaining episode...
This review contains spoilers.
5.4 Cooperative Polygraphy
After last week's high-concept David Fincher take-off, Basic Intergluteal Numismatics, the fourth episode of Dan Harmon's concerted series revival retreats to the study room, for a long scene that plays out as a bottle episode right up until the end credits tag.
The tone is notably more subdued this week too. At the height of last week's Ass Bandit foolishness, a bombshell was dropped; Level 5 Laser Lotus and all-round old man Pierce Anastasia Hawthorne is dead. We catch up with the study group as they return from his Reformed Neo Buddhist funeral, with a terrific opening line from Annie about how she's never been to a funeral with so much beeping.
But even from beyond the grave, Pierce is stirring up trouble amongst his friends. »
This isn’t the first movie to get nods from both ends of the spectrum. Since the Razzies first began back in 1981, 47 movies have been nominated for both “awards”– some even for the same exact person or song. Here’s a look at the club The Lone Ranger just joined:
