Watch Last Night's Perfect GI Joe-Style Opening Of Community

Actually, last night's episode of Community — which was not only animated like the classic cartoon, but also contained several shockingly accurate '80s GI Joe toy commercials — was pretty much perfect all the way around.

Forget crossovers – what happens at the fictional pet daycare?

This is from Pinkwa on tumblr, and the only complaint I have is that there aren't more pets here. I'm partial to Person of Interest's Bear. And also Myfanwy, the Torchwood pterodactyl. Let's get all the pets together, preferably in a location convenient to my apartment, okay? » 3/09/14 2:00pm 3/09/14 2:00pm

Community goes FULL Brave New World and it is wonderful

Last night Community unleashed all of the hard science fiction parodies. We have been waiting for this moment — we knew once Dan Harmon was done poking fun at Star Wars, action movies, zombie movies, horror movies and gangster films, eventually he would move on to weird dystopian films. And Community did not… » 3/07/14 2:41pm 3/07/14 2:41pm

Romance Fail: The Worst Fictional Pairings, and Why They Happen

Romance abounds in fiction — and science fiction and fantasy are full of epic romances too. But sometimes, it's just a bad idea. We see so many fictional couples that the writers clearly thought were a great idea, but are actually disasters. Here are the main signs that a fictional romance is a terrible, awful, bad… » 2/14/14 12:00pm 2/14/14 12:00pm

Community vs Big Bang Theory vs SFF : A Dialectical Approach

Genre and anti-genre, satisfaction and subversion. Why Community is so much fun for me as a geek, why TBBT isn't, and why I'm actually into that, (but you don't have to be.) I'm going to try and defend TBBT too, but defending TBBT turns out to look a lot like trashing TBBT, so something here for everyone.

I don't want… » 1/31/14 12:49pm 1/31/14 12:49pm
