‘Community’ Proves Yahoo Is Betting Big on Original Comedy Programming

Yesterday, when it was announced that Yahoo would be the streaming platform to revive Community for a sixth season, the news was predictably met with a mixture of joy from its fans and eye-rolling from its detractors. What everyone did agree on was that Yahoo was a laughable outlet to resurrect Community. Twitter immediately went for the “Outdated Platform Revives Classic TV Show” joke format. It is an odd choice — why not Hulu, Netflix, or even Amazon Video? — but Yahoo has actually been working on increasing its original programming output, so perhaps this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. … Read More

‘Community’ Isn’t ‘Arrested Development’: Why Dan Harmon Deserves His Sixth Season

Yesterday was pretty crappy, even by Monday standards: like most women I know, I spent most of it fuming over the Hobby Lobby decision, calming down, looking at Twitter, and getting furious all over again. So while Yahoo’s 11th-hour decision to bring Community back from the brink of cancellation didn’t salvage my mood entirely, it did take the edge off. Dan Harmon’s capable of brilliance wherever he lands (see Rick and Morty, in which animation allows Harmon and co-creator Justin Roiland to go even further afield), but Community has always been his most beloved project, not least because it’s constantly in danger of dying out. … Read More

Flavorwire’s 15 Favorite Shows of the 2013-2014 TV Season

Television is a year-round affair, but May marks the official end of the 2013-14 season. It was a great TV season, one of the most exciting that I can remember, and it brought us the debuts of instant-classic series, as well as especially strong seasons of returning favorites. There was an overwhelming amount of good television during these past 12 few months. Although it’s tough to narrow it down, here are my 15 favorite shows of the… Read More

‘Community’ May Well Come Back From the Dead — But It’s a Success Story Even If It Doesn’t

On Friday, NBC announced that Community wouldn’t be returning for a sixth season. One can only assume that the news was timed in hopes that it would be buried on a Friday afternoon, but NBC should have known that obsessive Community — and TV — fans are pretty much glued to Twitter, our handy second screen, at all times, Friday afternoon/night included. On the one hand, Community fans (and I always include myself in this group) have been preparing for cancellation at the end of every season, but on the other hand, this somehow felt like the one year when renewal wasn’t a long shot. … Read More
