One of the surest signs that you’ve made it as a cultural touchstone is when you begin getting parodied into Oblivion. It appears that True Detective has reached such status. ‘Cause True Detective has taken more than its fair share of (amusing?) potshots this week in anticipation Sunday’s finale. The latest one is courtesy of Joel McHale and Jim Rash of Community (and other sundry successes) fame.
There’s a documentary coming out about Dan Harmon – creator of Community, raving mad man, mind behind Harmontown, obese, belligerent inspiration to yours truly. I’m hoping it’s good! That it cuts closer to the quick than the trailer shows. More “this is Harmon dealing with himself” and less “Harmon is ZANY GUY.” We’ll see! Or maybe you won’t. I’ll see. Definitely.
I don’t know, man. There is a serious stretching of the narrative cartilage present in this trailer for the fifth season of Community. Stretching that is needed to get Winger back onto campus. I didn’t laugh — at least not much. But I don’t know. In Harmon I trust?
Oh man Dan Harmon I love you. Somehow you’ve clawed your way back onto the Community throne and you’re using your powers to bring us seeming glory in your show’s fifth season.
The show I love that by all signs shouldn’t have gotten a glorious fifth season and definitely shouldn’t have regained its creator is coming back this January. Rejoice, all ye faithful.
Oh shit! Community isn’t just returning for a fifth season to fuck my gullet-pipes with awesome. It’s bringing back Dan Harmon. But ya’ll already knew that. However, did you know that Mike (Jonathan Banks) from Breaking Bad is going to have the most in-depth guest starring role in the show’s history? Eh? Eh!
Oh Jesus Christ, feel these nipples. Careful though, careful. They are fucking sharp. Ready to slice through cynicism and pave a way into the glorious dimension where Dan Harmon is still on Community. Oh wait, that’s this one? Yesss.
Those rumors about Danny Harmon being asked back to Community that seemed ludicrous? Apparently ain’t that ludicrous. Multiple sources pig piling on the report. And Dan? Say yes. Please say yes.
One of those times where I’m torn between what I really think, and my desire to get the community talking about awesome The Community would be if Dan Harmon came back. ‘Cause like, you know. There is no way this is actually happening. Right?
Ok, look guys. I’ve been hemming and hawing over this damned CommuniCon piece for like half a week. I was gonna be all journalistic about this and try to cover everything that happened, but I’m Harmonish and rambly and it’s not gonna work. So, highlights after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
