It’s been a turbulent time for NBC’s entirely awesome comedy show Community – but are things turning around? I( hope so, because this new Season 4 spot is absolutely amazing.
Check it out!
The turbulent story of Community season 4 is a well known one.
At the end of season 3, the creator and showrunner Dan Harmon was fired, then the season 4 air date was pushed from the fall schedule and then Chevy Chase threw a hissy fit and up and left.
For the longest time, the show was in limbo and eager fans were left waiting to see whether arguably the best comedy show on television right now would even return.
Then, this past Monday a story was published by The Hollywood Reporter stating that NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt showed a little positivty towards the show.
When asked whether Community would get a fifth season, he said, “Yes, absolutely. I’m always hopeful for a show to continue. We co-own it and I’d love nothing more than to see it continue.”
A good sign, right? Well here’s an even better one. A season 4 sneak peek. Check it out, it’s awesome:
Like the sneak peek? Think community will get a fifth season? Will you be tuning into season 4 when it airs? Let me know in the comments below – it’d be awesome to hear your opinion!
Check out these entirely awesome Community T-Shirts!
In at number 8 on this entirely awesome list, is the “His Star Burns Bright” T-Shirt created by Tom Kurzanski.
For those of you unfamiliar with the show or are wondering just what the hell this t-shirt is about, the design is based on an episode at the end of the third series in which a subsiduary character by the name of Star Burns (he crafts his spectacular sideburns into stars – hence the name) dies in an explosion – he was cooking meth in the back of his van the venture goes terribly wrong.
Or is he? A montage at the end of the season shows that he faked his own death. To what end? Nobody knows for sure, but for whatever reason this design is awesome!
In at number 7 is the awesome “Troy and Abed’s Dope Adventures” design by Megan Lara.
I really like this design really emphasises the childlike relationship Troy and Abed share in the show and also because it’s based on a popular Calvin & Hobbes design.
The inspiration for the design clearly came from Troy’s line in the show “You should be like Calvin. His best friend was a tiger, he always went on dope adventures, and if anything stood in his way, he just peed on it.” which I find totally cool.
In at number 6 is the “Inspector Spacetime Blorgon Edition” by RexRayGun.
No Community based list of awesome t-shirt design would ever be complete without an Inspector Spacetime t-shirt. Inspector Spacetime is a fictional television show in the Community universe very clearly based on Dr. Who. The crew wean Abed onto the show after he’s upset that his favourite TV programme has been cancelled.
I think the design is pretty cool and adaptable to a variety of different t-shirt colors. It combines all aspects of Inspector Spactime you need as well as having a real eye-catching design. Awesome.
In at number 5 is the “Donde Esta La Biblioteca” design by Megan Lara.
The design name comes from the super awesome Spanish rap Troy and Abed develop in the first season of the show and the design itself is an artist imagining of the Greendale Community College crest. The design features a number of awesome in jokes such as “Annie’s Boob’s” the Monkey, the Chicken Fingers from season one’s “Contemporary American Poultry” show, the Greendale Community College Mascot – The Greendale “Human Being” and of course the man himself Magnitude – “Pop Pop”! Awesome design.
In at number 4 is the “Paintballers” design by WinterArtwork.
I love this design because not only does it reference Community, but it also references one of my favourite film franchises ever – The Ghostbusters. Major geekage and a complete win for me.
The design is based on the entirely awesome “Fistfull of Paintballs” and “For a Few Paintballs More” episodes from the end of the second season. As the titles would suggest, the arc has a very Spaghetti Western feel to it and is a very well crafted story – if you haven’t done already, you should definitely check them out.
In at number 3 is entirely awesome “Greendale Seven” design by Mark Wesler.
The design is mash-up of the ultra-stylistic Ocean’s Eleven (the original’s my fav BTW) and the awesome Community story arc at the end of the third season. I love it because the design is just breath-takingly gorgeous to look at as well as being a creative way to do a mash-up. Love it.
The runner-up in my list is this “Changlorious Basterds” design by Megan Lara.
I love this design because it’s another great mash-up design, but with one of my favourite movies of all time: Quentin Tarantino’s awesome war movie Inglorious Basterd’s. The design is awesome and no list could ever be complete without reference to the awesomeness of Senor Chang. The design epitomises the character so well from the story arc at the end of the third season it’s unreal and it’s so well crafted. A very deserving second for me.
And my FAVOURITE Community t-shirt design is “E Pluribus Anus” by Tom Trager.
One of my favourite laugh out loud moments from the entire show is when we find out that the Greendale Community College flag has been design to remarkably resemble an anus and this is that design. So not only do you get to walk around with, for all intents and purproses, an anus on your t-shirt but you get to walk around with anus made up of 20 awesome iconic artifacts from the show.
I love it – fantastic design, awesome concept.
