I joked a few days ago about how one of the only reasons people seem to watch The Simpsons lately is the occasional use of guest artists for a couch gag opening. And now Rick and Morty, the show created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon (which also happens to be one of the best, funniest, and sickest animated shows ever to air on television) has invaded The Simpsons and, yep, I love it.
This Rick and Morty Simpsons couch gag is somehow not even as messed up as some of the other wild couch gags by artists like Banksy and Don Hertzfeldt, but it is a spot-on combination of the two shows. Read More »
Update: Yahoo has released the first Community season 6 clip, we’ve added that after the jump.
Greendale Community College is opening its doors once again, and you can see the Community S6 trailer via the show’s new home… at Yahoo. The former NBC sitcom movies to Yahoo for it’s unlikely but possibly always-destined new season, and this first trailer teases not only the pilot, but seemingly the much of the first half of the season.
You’ve got Paget Brewster introduced as “the new Shirley,” and Keith David dropping the best Ghostbusters joke I’ve heard this year. (By the way, Keith David! Reason enough to watch right there.) And of course most of the show’s familiar characters are on hand to lend their own notes to the manic proceedings. Oh, and the whole trailer is an Avengers trailer parody, kind of, as if that image above didn’t clue you in. Watch the Community season 6 trailer below. Read More »

At one point, “six seasons and a movie” sounded like an amusingly preposterous goal. After all, Community that found itself on the brink of cancellation every single year. But now the first half of the prophecy is about to be fulfilled thanks to Yahoo, and Yahoo would really like to remind you of that fact. Especially that last part.
The first Community Season 6 trailer has hit, and while it’s light on new footage it’s heavy on the hype. According to the video, this new season will be “better, stronger, faster.” Watch it after the jump.

#SixSeasonsandaMovie isn’t yet a dead idea. NBC canceled Dan Harmon‘s show Community earlier this year, but it seemed like there was still a chance that it would end up with a new home. Talks with Hulu didn’t go anywhere, but Yahoo wants a show — and now Yahoo has the sixth (and last?) season of Community. The deal was announced today just hours before the cast’s contract collectively expires. More details of the Community Yahoo deal are below. Read More »
A great many people watch Community via Hulu — it’s one of the streaming service’s most popular offerings — and now Hulu may be the home for the near-mythical sixth season of the show. When the show was canceled by NBC there was some talk that a place like Hulu could be the home for one last season. And while comments from the show’s creator Dan Harmon made that seem like a pretty distant possibility, conversations are taking place.
At this point that’s all it seems to be — like Hulu buying Sony TV a drink and slyly being all “so, you think you might wanna make a sixth season together?” But that’s better than nothing. Read More »
What will happen to Community now that NBC has finally canceled the show following its fifth season? There was talk not long ago that made a sixth season sound, if not inevitable, then at least like something that could happen on Hulu or a similar digital service. But over the weekend, a new report painted that possibility as something much less likely than we’d previously thought. Capping everything off, Community creator Dan Harmon weighed in with words about his thoughts on the chances of a continuation. So will there be a Community sixth season after all? Well.. maybe?

“Six seasons and a movie” was originally a joke within the world of Dan Harmon‘s Community. It then became a catchphrase and rallying cry as the show struggled from season three to four, and then onward. One way or the other, it seemed like Harmon’s beleaguered show would make it to the finish line. But the biggest possible roadblock to that sixth season has just been thrown up, as NBC has canceled Community following the show’s fifth season. Read More »
Is the old Community mantra, “six seasons and a movie,” actually going to work? the phrase was written into the second season of Community as a joke, but became a rallying cry for fans as the show struggled in ratings through the third season. Then there was the sub-par fourth season (produced without series creator Dan Harmon) and Harmon’s triumphant return with a fifth season that recaptured the show’s vibe, earned strong notes from critics, and held steady with a constant viewership. Now there’s talk of a sixth season, and it seems as if the Community movie isn’t even destined to exist only as a punchline. Read More »

It’s been a wild few years for Dan Harmon, the controversial creator of NBC’s Community. There was his notorious feud with Chevy Chase, his very public firing from his own show, and his eventual re-hiring by the same show. The first Harmontown trailer tags along on the cross-country comedy tour he took in the interim, offering a tiny taste of what this beloved but troubled artist was going through during that time.
Neil Berkeley (Beauty Is Embarrassing) directed, and several of Harmon’s showbiz friends including Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Sarah Silverman, and Jack Black make appearances. Watch the video after the jump.

The first teaser for the fifth season of Community did something I thought was impossible: it made me want to watch the fifth season of Community. Early tweets from people who’ve seen the first episodes (like Alan Sepinwall) supported the notion that Dan Harmon‘s return has brought the show back to that smart/manic weirdness that made the best episodes of the first three seasons stand out from all other sitcoms.
Here’s a long trailer for the one-hour season premiere, which has more weird crap than even makes sense for one episode, plus Don Glover joking about his own impending departure, and an appearance from Walton Goggins. Suddenly, “six seasons and a movie” doesn’t seem so insane. Watch below. Read More »
