Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Community LIVES Edition

The unthinkable has happened – Community has been brought back from the dead, thanks to a last minute deal with Yahoo! for another season. The dream of #Sixseasonsandamovie lives on! Once Hulu passed on the deal, I really thought that there was no chance for the show’s survival and I had made my peace with that. I’ll be curious to hear more details about the resurrection – will the entire core cast be back, how many episodes will there be – and there is always a legitimate chance that this is a mistake, but I’m choosing to be cautiously optimistic about this announcement. In the words of Greendale’s greatest philosopher, Magnitude:


Don’t worry – if you don’t give a hoot about the return of a cult sitcom with terrible ratings, there is still plenty for you to enjoy in this week’s round up. I get that Community isn’t for everyone – only the best people 🙂 So while we wait for the three-day holiday weekend, kick back and get yourself caught up all the pop culture that you may have missed in the last seven days.
