The story behind the stellar show, Community, could be a show unto itself. From Chevy Chase’s antics to the problems with season four, the show has been no stranger to drama. But something new has come up that sheds new light behind the scenes. Dan Harmon says his ideas were stolen for season four of [&hellip

“Community” is both back on Jan. 2 and back. As in, the show that fans came to love during its first three seasons on NBC has returned.
It was the only television show I watched — and maybe one of the only shows ever — that really loved being a television show. I love pop culture (perhaps a little too much) and each week, “Community” served as a place that I could go and feel like I was surrounded by people who also loved pop culture (perhaps a little too much).
When “Community” creator Dan Harmon was fired before season four, he took with him all that made “Community” great. I don’t mean that as a disservice to the actors, who did their best during “the gas leak year »

I’m not going to lie – Hell Baby is made for a specific audience. One part goofy 80s horror, one part spookily inspired mindless comedy, Reno 911! alums Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant deliver a maternal story with a sinister bite unlike any other minds could produce. We’ve all seen their fake police skits, some of which include a naked man with a birdhouse on his pecker or Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) from Community tied to a bed with a dildo on his forehead, and that’s essentially the same kind of comedy these two serious horror fans bring to their very own brand of horror/comedy. Babies sure are little devils, but Lennon and Garant prove your screaming toddlers could have turned out a lot meaner, more vicious, and a hell of a lot more demonic.

Community returns for season 5 on January 2 with a two-episode block that plants its feet on the study room table and regrounds the characters after a fourth season of viewer discontent and lost purpose. It's impossible to discuss the season opener without talking about the show's creator. The sweet, funny first episode, titled "Repilot," follows graduate Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), returning to Greendale Community College after his law career stalls. As in the original series pilot, Winger harbors bad intentions and ulterior motives. The episode also marks the extremely improbable and welcome return of series creator Dan Harmon, rehired by Sony Pictures Television with its own apparent set of Winger-ish motives: On the cusp of the 100 episodes that make series syndicatio »
Kayo Redd, the younger brother of hip hop artist Waka Flocka Flame, died December 29 in a suspected suicide.
Kayo Redd Dead In Suspected Suicide
Redd, an aspiring rapper, died in Atlanta Sunday night. The police have not released an official cause of death yet, but conflicting reports pin it on either a shooting or suicide.
The belief that Redd's death was a suicide comes from an alleged tweet Flocka posted, which is no longer on his feed, which read “My F***Ing Lil Brother Killed Hisself F**Kkkkkkkkk Lifeeeeeee.”
Tweets continued to appear on Redd's feed through December 30 promoting his upcoming work, likely due to automatic tweet updates.
Hip Hop Community Mourns Kayo Redd
Flocka posted two messages mourning the loss of his younger brother on his Twitter. He tweeted “God please bless me,” then posted a short video montage of Redd.
Ya Big Brother love you Kayo http://t. »

Though a lot of Marvel-centric news swirling around the internet over the past month has been focused primarily on Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, superhero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier is actually the next film coming out of the mega-successful film studio. Scheduled for next April, the sequel is set to send the Cap (Chris Evans) on a modern-day adventure around Washington, D.C..
Though a few story reveals (mostly centered around the titular antagonist) have cropped up in recent months, there’s still a lot that we don’t know about the plot of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and a new crop of images from Empire, which you can check out at the bottom of this article, isn’t doing much to change that. The shots, which find the film’s main players preparing for battle, look pretty cool without telling us much of anything we »

It's not six seasons and a movie, but "Community" is going into Season 5. What better time to take a look back at the show so far and honor the best of the best? These six episodes feature the best of "Community" parodies, from "Law & Order" to "Glee" and more.
When is product placement more than just product placement? How about when advertising Kentucky Fried Chicken in the context of "Apollo 13"?
5. 'Modern Warfare' ('28 Days Later,' 'Terminator,' 'The Matrix,' every disaster/apocalyptic movie ever)
Paintball goes horribly wrong at Greendale when the prize proves too good. And Jeff misses the breakdown of society while sleeping. Later paintball episodes ("A Fistful of Paintballs" and "A Few Paintballs More") offer parodies as well, but "Modern Warfare" started the trend and is arguably the best of the bunch. »
The new cover of Empire last week gave us our first photo of Sebastian Stan as the new villain on the scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Now some new photos from that issue have surfaced to gives us a glimpse at a scene only teased in the teaser trailer and extended preview shown before Thor: The Dark World. One features the villain holding the shield of Captain America (Chris Evans) during a street battle (which has also been teased in the trailer), while another shows Scarlett Johansson in action as well. There's also a new shot of Cap and Robert Redford speaking with Samuel L. Jackson. Look now! Here's some new photos from Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier from Empire: Captain America: The Winter Soldier is directed by Anthony & Joe Russo ("Community" and "Arrested Development") with a script from Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The First Avenger, »

That the low-rated "Community" is returning to NBC on Thursday night at 8, for a fifth season, with creator Dan Harmon back at the helm a year after he was fired, defies all logic. But then, "Community" has never had much use for logic. The comedy — and the dysfunctional community college that provides its setting — has always operated by its own set of rules, consistently pulling off ideas that have no business working. At its best — and Harmon's first few episodes back get much closer to the show's peak than I was expecting — it is a marvelous »

Ahhhhh. Now, that’s more like it. That’s not the keenest critical summary of the fifth season of Community. But that’s how you’ll feel if you, like me, think the sitcom became an unsatisfying photocopy of itself after Dan Harmon, its creator and driving force, was pushed out over complaints about his volatile management style. The show’s Harmonless fourth season produced a few memorable installments; the best were probably the puppet episode (“Intro to Felt Surrogacy”) and the season finale (“Introduction to Finality”) that could have doubled as makeshift series finale in case NBC and Sony pulled the plug. But even at its best, the Harmonless Community still felt off, like a cover band doing another group’s material. Some alchemical agent was awol. Now it’s back, thank goodness, and even if you didn’t know Harmon was in charge again, you’d sense it. »

Dan Harmon, the creator and executive producer of NBC’s Community, was controversially fired after season three in 2012, but he’ll be back at the show’s helm when it returns for its fifth season on January 2. In no particular order, these are the movies, books, and evolutionary anthropologists that inspired him.1. George LucasHe introduced a code of honor and a taste for the mystical to a generation that was being raised on empty garbage—the first generation raised on nothing but media. We would have been a generation of absolute sociopaths and drug addicts if it weren’t for George Lucas. He believed you could make a film that both was important to people and had robots in it.2. Joseph CampbellHe was a comparative mythologist who asked himself, “Why is it that these stories are so similar?” Too often we become atheists at the age of 12, just because our »

It’s been a while since you’ve been in school mode — Community-wise, that is — but don’t worry.
TVLine recently sat down with star Joel McHale to prepare a brief syllabus of what you can expect from the NBC comedy’s upcoming fifth season.
Video | Community Promo Is Mad Men Levels of Vague
The hour-long opener, which airs Thursday (8/7c), is “a re-piloting of the show,” McHale says. “What’s really cool is that there’s a bunch of new information that happened while we’re away that now informs the characters.”

Happy birthday, Alison Brie!
The "Community" funny girl turns 31 Sunday (Dec. 29), and while we can't celebrate with the new season of the NBC comedy quite yet -- there are only a few more days to go until Season 5 premieres -- we can celebrate with a Gif party of the funniest Annie moments so far.
Meet Annie Edison:
Her mother gave her some memorable advice when she joined the cheerleading squad:
She gets creative with sports signs:
She's great in a crisis:
She's a little naive when it comes to guys:
Okay, she's naive when it comes to just about everything ... like pepper spray:
But we still love her and her Disney face:
Happy birthday, Alison!
"Community" Season 5 premieres Thursday, Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. Et on NBC. »
Both the first teaser trailer and the five-minute preview that played before Thor: The Dark World in IMAX have given us a brief glimpse at the villain in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. However, we've yet to get a good still image of Sebastian Stan as one of the more iconic villains from Cap's history. Now Empire has delivered our first promo image featuring the metal-armed bad guy, along with a proper shot of Chris Evans in his new navy blue suit, and Scarlett Johansson with her d hair (which probably shaves a lot of time off her morning routine). It's nothing special, but The Winter Soldier looks bad ass. Look below! Here's the Empire cover for Joe & Anthony Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier: Captain America: The Winter Soldier is directed by Anthony & Joe Russo ("Community" and "Arrested Development") with a script from Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The First Avenger, »

The first four seasons of "Community" have played around with a handful of couplings of its characters -- Jeff and Britta, Britta and Troy, Jeff and Annie, Jeff and the Dean.
Ok, so that last one has taken place just about entirely in Dean Pelton's (Jim Rash) head, but his unrequited crush on Jeff (Joel McHale) has been a consistently reliable source of comedy for the series. With Season 5 of the show just a week away, NBC has released this video chronicling the evolution of this very, very one-sided relationship.
Despite the Dean's best efforts, Jeff did end up graduating last season. But the pull of Greendale is strong, and the Dean will no doubt be ecstatic that events in Jeff's life bring him back to the college in Season 5. Take a look at their time together:
Mad Men and Community may have almost nothing in common (outside of the lovely Alison Brie), but some genius mind wondered what it would be like if the trailer for the new season of Community was done, Mad Men style. I have said it before and will say it again. Sometimes two things that taste [&hellip

NBC’s pop culture-loving comedy “Community” has found a creative way to tease its season five debut, releasing a trailer that spoofs “Mad Men,” the other cult favorite show that features co-star Alison Brie.
Much like the teasers for the AMC drama it references, the new promo is deliberately vague on what’s in store for the upcoming season. But that is all part of the fun; this season marks the return of series creator Dan Harmon, who recently told the New York Times that “the show’s never had a groove. That’s not a bad thing. It’s a joyfully un-templated show.”
The fifth season of “Community” bows at 8 p.m. January 2.

Better watch out, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, the Greendale study group is coming for you! NBC's highly anticipated fifth season of Community is just a week away and we're currently counting down the seconds until we're reunited with all of our favorite shenanigan-prone students. To make matters even more exciting, NBC just released a brand-new promo for Community's new season and it looks like our gang is getting a Mad Men makeover. The cult comedy is ready to embrace the same vague tactics of AMC's smash period drama—and it's frustratingly hilarious. Over the past five years, Alison Brie has done a phenomenal job at balancing the workload of her two characters on Community »
