I hope Megan Ganz comes back to write more Community episodes.
Thoughts, ideas, creative musings, observations, and nuances.
Rap stepfather, yeah you hate me but you will respect.
I like Donald Glover’s style. I also think he would have made a great Spider-Man (especially since, as far as I know, he’s actually a FAN of Spider-Man.)
Back on 2010, Hulu made a “Best Of TV” poll, in which Community beat many popular shows and placed on the final four. Upset, @amyfairycakes tweeted to Dan Harmon: “both Modern Family and Glee are streets ahead of your meta bullshit”. After seeing the tweet, Harmon retweeted it and added “~ this tweet’s theme song: http://bit.ly/c3XUSh”, and kept on mocking @amyfairycakes for using that term., with witty puns, animated videos and ultimately, putting the term in one of his scripts. Trying to get back at Harmon, “Amy” noted that streets ahead is a term that’s “in common parlance in ireland & UK” and “not a wacky phrase I just conjured up.” Dan replied: “You’re telling me the only two words you put together that moved me aren’t yours? But aren’t you a writer? You said ‘meta.’”
I did not know this, and now I feel like a better person for having discovered this. Awesome Dan Harmon. Awesome.
Because Community f’ing rocks!
So apparently because NBC is, for the first time in recent memory, not dying in the ratings, they are going to postpone airing Community’s season 4 premiere.
In response, I think I’ll just stop watching all NBC, which is not really a hard thing to do these days anyway.
Maybe if their ratings return to their more commonly-seen low levels, they’ll stop screwing over the small, but dedicated fan-base they actually have for their quality show(s).
2012 has highlighted NBC’s continued slide into ineptitude.
