Six Seasons and a Community Panel at SDCC 2014!

Hey Human Beings! It’s been a rollercoaster of a year, what with Dan Harmon getting un-fired from Community, then Donald Glover leaving the show, and then the show getting cancelled, only to be rescued at the last moment (by, of all corporate human beings, Yahoo?) and unleashed back into the world like some sort of wizard that fell into shadow and came back all white and glowing and more irascible than ever. San Diego Comic Con hosted a Community panel today, and it was full of wonders! First, to get the news out of the way: Community Season 5 will come our on Blu-ray/DVD on Aug 5th, and writing for Season 6 will begin this fall! Now click through to read highlights from the panel!

[Yes, Harmon’s already planning the movie.]

Morning Roundup: Tiny Batman Fights for Tiny Justice, Your Happiness

tiny happy batman

Artist Red Scharlach decided to go off-canon with this “Tiny Happy Batman,” and we're glad she did. Imagine what a happy-go-lucky place Gotham could be, if this was the face of its greatest citizen crimefighter? 

Morning Roundup brings you behind-the-scenes shenanigans with the Guardians of the Galaxy, a rumination on Community's role in entertainment history, and an honestly terrifying report on the lives of writers in the UK. 

[But on a lighter note: GOATS!!!!]

Morning Roundup: If You’re Gonna Build a Limo Out of a Car, Why Not Do it with Some Style?

So prom season is over, which is not usually something we care about, but how sweet would it be to roll up in this stretch DeLorean? Oh, if only there was some way to slip the bonds of time and travel back to May...

Morning Roundup is excited to be back from a long weekend! Yeah, we’re going with that! We’ve got rumors of the Pacific Rim sequel, a movie from the greatest timeline, and 100% more Rogue!

[Plus the Imperial invasion of Frankfurt Airport. Enjoy!]

Community Renewed for a SIXTH Season and Nothing Makes Sense Anymore

Community sixth season Yahoo

Community, the belovedly misanthropic show that we kind of thought for sure was done at the end of this pretty-okay fifth season...has been picked up for a sixth season.

Hitfix is reporting that Yahoo is getting into the original online programming game by funding a sixth season of the show. Contracts with the actors expired at the end of June, making this one very close shave of a deanewal, er, renewal.

There will be 13 episodes, produced by Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna, set to debut late this fall. Hitfix has additional comments from Harmon and Joel McHale. We don’t even know what timeline to call all of this. The impossible timeline?

Here’s hoping Troy comes back.

Morning Roundup: Hogwarts 90210!

We have never been so thankful for wizard robes. Tardis-in-Acid shared this wonderful reimagining of Harry and his friends dressed in historically accurate 90s fashions to match the setting of the books, and mom jeans and floral prints are far more terrifying than any battle with Voldemort. Although, we have to say Neville's pleated mustard slacks are pretty endearing... and we've one minor complaint: all the girls' bangs need to be higher and crispier.

Morning Roundup leaves sartorial musing behind to focus on news from the Episode VII set, updates on HBO's Maddaddam adaptation, and the introduction of Ser Goldblatt!

A Message to Our Community

About the current dispute between Hachette and Amazon: We know there are two sides to every story. We have always had a great relationship with Amazon. Ok, that might be going too far, but they have been a great partner over the years and have performed wondrous, jaw dropping feats. Over the last few weeks, Amazon has chosen to disrupt the relationship between the supplier and the end customer. Fair enough, in a struggle over terms it’s not so strange a tactic for a retailer.

Five Seasons and Nothing Else. Community Cancelled

NBC cancels Community

The weirdest little show that could finally won't anymore. According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC has pulled the plug on Community, citing its poor performance over the previous season.

We'll simply have to be happy with the 97 episodes we got. And who knows. Donald Glover is still out there on a boat somewhere with LeVar Burton. Spin-off, maybe? The Dean would make an excellent, and quite festive, stowaway Gilligan-type.

Morning Roundup: How You Get so Big, Eating Food of This Kind?

Dun-Well Doughnuts have just become the greatest heroes in the galaxy! In observance of May the Fourth, they created a whole line of Star Wars-themed doughnuts, including Darth Maul (red icing with dark chocolate stripes) and the Princess Leia Maple Buns (self-explanatory). But Yoda, he’s the best! He’s always the best. We also recommend scrolling all the way down to meet their baker. He’s kind of a badass.

Morning Roundup contains many wonders! Have you ever thought, really thought, about the death of Peter’s Parker’s parents? Do you want to look for a secret library? Do you want a new Star Wars film once a month?

Obviously we all want that one. Read on!

Morning Roundup: You Avengers are All Weirdos

We don’t know about you, but our Captain America afterglow refuses to die. Luckily, the internet is here to continue stoking the flames of our pop culture patriotism. Friend-of-the-site Steven Padnick posted this piece of awesome on his tumblr, and it made us all warm and fuzzy. And feathery.

Morning Roundup includes some thoughts on race and casting, an alternate view on Captain America, and some shocking news from George R.R. Martin!

Morning Roundup: This is Going to Be the Scariest Easter Ever

Redditor Dontago posted some wonderful on-set pictures of H.R. Giger working on the designs for Alien! Here he is painting an egg to give it just the right amount of skin-crawling horror. You can see more of the pictures here, including a few touch-ups to the full Alien model!

Love the Show that Loves to Hate Itself. Community: “Repilot” and “Introduction to Teaching”

You guys, we exist in a timeline where Community was never cancelled.

The season 5 double premiere “Repilot” and “Introduction to Teaching” was an excellent return to form; expertly tackling the difficulty of being funny and pulling off an even harder trick by making it feel like no time had passed while still talking constantly about the amount of time that had passed.

It also played out like the inside of my head, with all the self-loathing and misuse of Excel which that implies.

Troy and Abed, Meet Geordi and Data!

So we all know and love Texts from Star Trek: The Next Generation. But, with Community returning like Gandalf the White galloping in on mighty Shadowfax, we thought it was time to share a new and beautiful mashup.

We give you: Troy and Abed in Engineering. This tumblr has created a world far better than our own, in which the friendship of Geordi LaForge and Data is roughly analogous to the devotion shared by Greendale’s Troy and Abed, and mashing up ensues.

11 Odd, Campy, and Surreal Holiday Specials that Should be Classics

Pee Wee Christmas

Several years ago around this time, I wrote a post about some of my favorite bizarro holiday specials to help ring in our very first Tor.com Cthulhumas/Life Day/Krampusnacht/Solstice celebration. While a lot has changed since 2008, my abiding love of strange and unusual holiday-inspired lunacy is as strong as ever, so please enjoy this updated guide to some classic (or should-be classic) yuletide entertainment….

Community Season 5 Preview is Basically How We Are Inside

Community season 5 preview

Hot off the recently released trailer for Community season 5 comes “Beyond the Darkest Timeline,” a seriously demented preview of what is to come beginning this January 2nd, 2014.

Is that Starburns dressed as Sean Connery in Zardoz?

New Community Season 5 Trailer Promises Relief from our Despair

Community season 5 trailer

We’re a little ashamed that we forgot Community returns on January 2nd, but only a little. After all, isn’t Community a show that embraces the full shame, despair, and joy of being odd? Yes.

Now let’s watch this trailer for the forthcoming fifth season, because god it hurts to see Jeff and Britta and Troy and Abed and Shirley and Chang and Dean and Leonard again. It hurts so good.

Nathan Fillion and Joel McHale are holding Alison Brie. On the set of Community. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID

Alison-Brie-Joel-McHale-Nathan-Fillion-Community-Set

Wait, why were we arguing again? Anyway, as most of you probably know, Cap’n Mal has temporarily joined the cast of Community! And it’s great to see that he’s fitting right in. Brie posted this pic on Twitter, as well as this images sequel, in which the two men drop her. Honestly, we think that if we were ever given the opportunity to hold Alison Brie, we would be more careful. Really, even if she just let us hold her purse or something, we wouldn’t drop that either...

Anyway, Morning Roundup! There are a few horrific road trip ideas, some insane Spider-Man casting ideas, and a live reading of Welcome to Night Vale!

Morning Roundup: C is For Cookie and That’s Good Enough for Evil

Tom Hiddleston Cookie Monster Sesame Street Loki

Curse you, Loki, for turning the Cookie Monster to your side! We can only hope Thor and Oscar the Grouch team-up to halt their menace, for we are not strong enough to resist the sway of Tom Hiddleston and his EVIL COOKIES.

This promo shot comes courtesy of PBS’ Instagram. Hiddleston will appear on the new season of Sesame Street. Probably not dressed as Jango Fett.

Your Morning Roundup is trying to remember that movie you like...the dad’s a robot? They’re all made of Lego? Zardoz, that’s it.

The SDCC Community Panel is the Best Way You Can Spend Your Brief Precious Time on Earth Today

(image of Dan Harmon and Danny Pudi via)

Do we even need to tell you that the Community panel at SDCC 2013 was overflowing with Promethean glory? Dan Harmon came out in an Iron Man suit! Then he talks about his feelings! And failure! And apologizes for practically everything he’s ever done! So, y’know, it’s hilarious. Aside from the absence of Joel McHale and Donald Iscariot Glover it’s basically perfect. You should drop everything (unless you’re holding a baby or a kitten or something) and watch it right now.
