I’m between movie-viewings in the 1001 Film Club project right now, currently re-reading the first installment of The Kingkiller Chronicle, and avoiding buying any new comics lately as part of a general post-holiday, post-home-repairs/pre-spring-sprucing-up program of austerity, so the pickings are a little bit slim for new media upon which to fully geek out this week.
Even if I had a focal subject readily at hand, though, I’m not sure I’d be in the right frame of mind to dwell on it today. Word on the street is that Community is finally going to finish airing the rest of its season 3 episodes, and I am simply overcome with emotion.
Well, technically, word on the street is that Community is going to be airing in its old 8 p.m. Thursday timeslot on March 15, so it’s still like three weeks away, and it’s strongly implied that the remainder of season 3 will play out over the course of the subsequent March, April and May Thursdays, but there’s really no guarantee there. NBC could freak out over low ratings after March 22 and just start airing outtakes from The Voice or something, I guess. Or the rest of season 3 could unfold as the best episodes of the entire series so far, building to a gut-wrenching cliffhanger to be resolved in season 4, and then the show could be cancelled over the summer and never heard from again. But I’m choosing a more optimistic interpretation. Community is coming back! Good times with awesomesauce.
P.S. Perhaps this goes without saying but if you've never watched Community and are at all swayed by the wailing and gnashing of teeth and/or I've done hereabouts, you could totally do me a solid by checking it out this spring, talking it up, and straight up stonecold bribing anyone you know who has a Nielsen box into tuning in as well.
