Joel McHale Says There Will Be Nudity in Tomorrow's 'Community'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 3rd 2010 9:00PM
Joel McHaleIf you're a fan of Joel McHale, 'Community' and flagrant full-frontal nudity, then here's your Christmas present.

The 'Soup' host and 'Community' star sent out a warning on his Twitter page that reads, "So ... on this Thursday's new 'Community' I'm pretty much going to be naked. I'm sending this tweet to prepare my family."

I know one person who is really excited to see such a hot actor in next to nothing on his TV. That's right, Mercedes-Benz marketing vice president Stephen Cannon!

'Community' - 'Communication Studies' Recap

'Community' - 'Communication Studies'
(S01E16)
Suddenly I want to spend at least 40 more minutes in the world of 'Community' after tonight's episode. I wonder if those 40 minutes will come back to haunt our dear friend later?

Jeff and Abed tore it up with one of the most bizarre drunk montages I've ever seen, culminating with Abed in the absolute best "aftermath" position I've ever seen. And Jeff did it all to try and make things right with Britta again. Try as they might, those two just can't seem to get their awkward feelings for one another to stop interfering with their relationship as "just-friends."

With the Valentine's Day dance looming, Troy and Pierce tried to regain some of their own dignity early in the episode, only to lose it completely by the end of it. Surprisingly, despite his "skills" on the dance floor, Chang either has no dignity to lose, or has so much that it's impervious to anything he does.

Jeff Drunk-Dials Britta on 'Community' (VIDEO)

Community - Joel gets drunkLet's face it. Sometimes to even the score, you have to drunk-dial someone. Don't try to understand it. That's just the way it is.

We're glad Jeff is finally starting to come to terms with that, and decides to get drunk with Abed to fix his relationship with Britta on 'Community' (Thurs., 8PM ET on NBC).

Moral of the story? If your relationship is in trouble, maybe it's time to look at drunk-dialing as a possible solution.

Review: 'Community' - 'Romantic Expressionism'

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 5th 2010 4:45AM
Alison Brie, 'Community'(S01E15) This episode would have been great for the scene where the study group looked around the room thinking of one another sexually. Without a single word, there was so much spoken with facial expressions and eyes and turns of the head.

I am glad we got more, though. Abed's 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' inspired movie nights reminded me of my own college experience. We used to do the exact same thing; it made 'Waterworld' and 'Battlefield Earth' instant classics. Unfortunately, we got into such bad habits that to this day I find myself mocking and ridiculing even good movies and TV shows.

Luckily, I'm a little quicker on the draw than Pierce. Kudos to him, though, for taking it the extra step and preparing for the next night. That's doing it 'MST3K' style, for real!

'Community': 'I Took That Kiss for the Team!' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 5th 2010 12:02AM
Community - KissingThe only studying taking place in the study group on 'Community' (Thurs., 8PM ET on NBC) involves kissing, sniping and tattle-taling. How old are these people again? Because they seem like they're about 15.

Some of our favorite lines: "I took that kiss for the team!" "Yeah, that kiss wasn't for pleasure. It was strategic and joyless."

How about everyone just gathers 'round for one big giant group kiss and gets it over with? Just an idea.

Review: Community - Interpretive Dance

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 22nd 2010 1:02AM
Donald Glover, Community(S01E14) This one actually hits a little close to home. Through most of my childhood, and into my teen years, I took dance classes. I even got pretty good, performing with the St. Louis Ballet Company for a brief time. But, like Troy, there was that element of shame and embarrassment in being a male dancer, primarily based on the negative response most people still seem to have to it.

However, while I've been to plenty of recitals in my day, I've never seen adults perform routines anything like the weird teapot-flower dance Britta found herself in. It was so goofy and hilarious, that I felt almost as horrified and mortified for her as Pierce did. Actually, I think Pierce was having a blast.

Review: Community - Investigative Journalism

Community: Investigative Journalism
(S01E13)
I'd like to give thanks to the Executive Producer Associate Supervisor Supervising Executive for being the man, or woman, behind the new semester at Community. When the gang returned from the break they discovered a new member in their group -- he snuck in during the group hug.

Jack Black basically plays one type of character, and that's who we got this week. There were some genuinely funny moments, but this definitely wasn't one of the stronger episodes of the series to date. With the community college setting, it's pretty easy to slip in a guest star here or there and even, as in this case, pretend they've been there the whole time. I just don't think it's necessary right now for Community.

'The Soup' Celebrates a Dog Eating a Donor Heart on 'One Tree Hill' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 28th 2009 3:30PM
On 'The Soup,' Joel McHale revisited a moment from this past March when Dan's donor heart fell to the floor in a hospital and was promptly eaten by a hungry Golden Retriever on 'One Tree Hill.' Yes, that actually happened.

McHale celebrated this awesomely ridiculous moment from the CW show after declaring 2009 as 'One Tree Hill's' "most surprising year of still being on TV yet."

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Seven shows a-thrivin'

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 17th 2009 11:03AM
john lithgowOn the seventh day of Festivus, TV gave to me... Seven shows a-thrivin'.

The 2009-2010 season is a great one to be on TV-- especially for returning dramas and new comedies. If we had 20 days of Christmas, I probably could have filled the list with shows that were either thriving right out of the gate or making a resurgence after being on the air for several years. As it is, we just have seven slots, so here are some noteworthy series that are thriving this year.

Dexter
I've always liked Dexter, but it's never been appointment TV for me. I've generally been content to wait until the season came out on DVD and knock all of the episodes out in a weekend. However, after a creative dip in season 3, I've found myself positively glued to my television every Sunday night that season 4 has aired. John Lithgow absolutely made the season as the creepy Arthur Mitchell. Plus the finale? I know some of you saw the big twist coming at the end, but I certainly did not. Who doesn't like to end a season with their jaw on the floor?

Jack Black to Guest on 'Community'

Jack Black can rock out on stage and fill the big screen but lately he can't keep away from the tube as well.

Appearances on the 'The Office' plus the children's show 'Yo Gabba Gabba' were not enough. Now, Zap2it tells us, Black plans a January appearance on 'Community.'

Review: Community - Comparative Religion

Community: Comparative Religion
(S01E12)
The Christmas, er *ahem* the ... uh ... Holiday spirit hit Greendale Community College, and brought with it one of the funniest episodes of Community yet. It's the end of their first semester together, and Shirley decides to throw a Christmas party in the study group room. The only problem is, not everyone in the group is Christian. In fact, none of them are the same religion at all, and Pierce may be something else entirely.

What's more, Anthony Michael Hall showed up to bully Abed, and wound up having to face off against Jeff in a bully smackdown! The dilemma for the gang: show up at Jeff's fight or show up for Shirley's party. What to do?

Review: Community - The Politics of Human Sexuality

Annie's a unicorn! Well, sorta. Actually, it's more complicated than that. And after Annie explained things, I was even more confused.

Another solid episode; this show is really in its groove right now. The new relationship Jeff has established with Britta; the one without him trying to get into her pants every week, or her accusing him of it every week; is really working for me. I like this group more as a bunch of friends than a group of potential hook-ups. At least for awhile.

Pierce took center stage in one of the three stories juggled this week, revealing to Jeff that he can score a hot chick. Even better, challenging Jeff to do the same. Annie got involved in helping Greendale throw its STD Ball, which went as well as you'd expect. And Troy and Abed -- this may be the best comedy duo on TV since J.D. and Turk.

Joel McHale presents TLC's next reality bonanza

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 1st 2009 2:07PM
If you've ever watched The Soup or Community, you know what a (hot) genius Joel McHale is. But while his scruffy mug tends to get all of the credit for the funny that The Soup constantly brings, I've got to give it up for the video editors on staff for this one.

Now that Jon and Kate is off the air, TLC is scrambling to figure out what mildly offensive reality concept it's going to use to win over America once again. Instead of coming up with an entirely new concept (because, let's face it: ideas are hard), The Soup posits that TLC is just going to combine all of their already successful shows into one.

TLC has decided to build their success on little people, tattoos, pageant kids, cake shows and folks who have way too many babies, so let's just cut the crap and give the people what they want. In this case, the people want Fertile Little Tattooed Pageant Parents Who Enjoy Baking.

Review: Community - Environmental Science

Community: Environmental Science(S01E10) Hey, Jeff was kind of a selfish douche and then at the end he became a good person and did the right thing. Quick game: which episode am I describing?

I know I've complained about the predictability of this plot procedure in every episode, but for some reason it worked this week. Probably because even in the execution of it, you could see that Jeff had at least gained a sense of loyalty to his study group. In other words, he felt bad about what he was doing from the beginning. He still did it, but somehow that made all the difference.

I think the more shocking development was that Pierce offered to help Shirley with an upcoming speech she had to give, and she actually accepted. He also learned the "secret" to Jeff's power over the group, though I still think it's just confidence.
