Chevy Chase has made no secret of his dissatisfaction with Community, both in the pre- and post-Dan Harmon eras, so his departure always seemed more like a question of “when” than “if.” And now, that time has finally come. Effective immediately, Chase is no longer part of the NBC cult comedy, and will not appear in the few Season 4 episodes that remain to be shot. More details after the jump.

These days, animation isn’t as defined by age as it once was. Once upon a time, a Disney movie was only thought to be for kids. But recently, Pixar has tackled mature themes, the humor of South Park has become a cultural institution, Star Wars is an animated TV series, comic book characters have cartoons and thanks to genres like anime, R-rated animation isn’t an oxymoron.
Enter Justin White, an up and coming artist made popular through sites like Threadless. He’s decided to take that thought one step further and turn some of your favorite live action movies and TV shows in to animation. His first solo show is called Rated G and opens at Gallery 1988 Melrose, in Los Angeles on Friday. We’re proud to exclusively the entire show.
White’s familiar yet flithy animated style has reimagined scenes from 30 films and shows never meant for animation. Films like Fight Club, Fargo, Casablanca, The Breakfast Club, Oldboy, Kindergarden Cop, Alien, Reservoir Dogs, There Will Be Blood and a whole lot more have been reimagined as high quality animation cels. He even tackled TV shows like Community, The Office, Breaking Bad and more.
After the jump check out all 30 images from the show and find out when and how you can grab them. Read More »

Human Beings, your prayers have been answered at last. No, not the one where NBC travels back in time to un-fire Dan Harmon. The one where Community finally sets a firm return date.
Meanwhile, Netflix still hasn’t gotten around to setting an exact date for the long-awaited return of Arrested Development, but one site’s got some inside info that narrows down the window a bit. Early 2013 is going to be a great time for comedy nerds. Hit the jump to read more.

Until not so long ago, fans of Community might have been excited for, or at least interested in tonight’s TV schedule. The show’s fourth season was originally set to premiere tonight, giving us the first taste of the troubled series without creator Dan Harmon. But the shortened season, now run by David Guarascio and Moses Port, has been indefinitely delayed by NBC.
But you can have some new Community today, as the cast (Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Chevy Chase, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash) has come together to create a promo to explain just what today really means for fans of the show. Hint: it’s a mental state. Read More »

Community fans have hoped for the best when it comes to the fourth season of the playful sitcom, which is now being shot without the input of creator Dan Harmon. And while NBC and the current showrunners, David Guarascio and Moses Port, have insisted that everything is on track for a satisfying season, now we don’t know when that season will actually begin. The truncated fourth season of the show was meant to move to Friday night on October 19. But now NBC has delayed that season start
Whitney, also set for a Friday debut on the 19th, has been delayed as well. NBC isn’t talking, though Vulture says the reason could be as simple as money, as the network is paying to market other new shows, and hasn’t been able to get around to the Friday leftover slate. We’ll have to wait and see what the Peacock does with both shows, and whether it moves them to new days, or lets them slide back to their original days. (That would be Wed. for Whitney, and Thurs for Community.)
After the break, new info on NBC’s plans for Dracula. Read More »
Watch ‘Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time’, a.k.a. Not ‘Inspector Spacetime’

NBC’s decision to put Community at the end of its fall premiere calendar is probably helpful to the cast and crew, who no doubt appreciate the extra time to adjust under new showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port. But for fans just eager to return to Greendale after a long, hot summer, that just means they have to watch impatiently as all the other NBC debuts go by first.
So if you fall into the latter category, why not pass a bit of that time checking out what might be Troy and Abed’s favorite long-running Brit series if not for NBC’s legal department? After the jump, watch the first episode of Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time — an Inspector Spacetime-inspired show created by and starring Inspector Spacetime himself, Travis Richey.
