Community renewed for fifth season | TV News

community

Quirky comedy series Community has been renewed for a fifth (and likely final) season.

Despite modest ratings, the show has continued to find success in the streaming video on demand market, with services like Netflix and Hulu providing the perfect place for fans to catch up.

Having gained quite the cult following since it’s debut in 2009, the show has been on rocky ground ever since creator Dan Harmon was forced out as showrunner due to low ratings and production issues after season three. Read more

Childish Gambino f/ Flynt Flossy & Yung Humma - “F*ck Your Blog” | New Music


Never-before-heard Childish Gambino is always welcome, even in the ambiguous and unfinished form that "Fuck Your Blog" takes. This collaboration between Gambino and Flynt Flossy and Yung Humma (of "Lemme Smang It" fame) is pretty strange though - Gambino takes the last verse and although his bars are characteristically personality and punchline laden, he's actually rapping for real and thus sounds relatively out-of-place after the "not sure if serious" stuff that comes before him.

It's an interesting move given Donald Glover's quite reasonable desire that his actor/comedian background  not tar people's view of him as a rapper but he nonetheless goes off on this track. Far be it for me to turn my nose up at another crazy Gambino verse.

Community animated webisodes to debut on March 7th | Teaser Trailer


If, like me, you're awesome (I know, wrong sitcom!), then chances are you've been in a deep state of depression for the last few months, whilst NBC's outstanding sitcom Community has been on an indefinite hiatus. No doubt you rejoiced when it was announced a couple of weeks ago that the funniest show of all-time (yep, I said it) would be returning to TV screens on March 15th with a run of twelve brand new episodes. Chances are, since getting the good news, you've been wondering what to do with yourself whilst you wait with baited breath for the return of all that's good with the world - if that's the case, then you'll be pleased to know that from March 7th, our friends at Greendale Community College will be back, but in cartoon form.

Here's what NBC had to say about the upcoming web-series:

The three promotional shorts, titled “Abed’s Master Key” parts I, II & III, feature the animated alter-egos and voices of the “Community” series regulars and run approximately two minutes in length. Dave Seger (“Ikea Heights”) & Tom Kauffman (“Ikea Heights”) wrote the animated shorts.

In the three-part sequence of “Abed’s Master Key,” Dean Pelton hires Abed as his temporary assistant. Entrusted with a Greendale Master Key; Abed abuses his power to help his friends, and after Britta confronts Abed, she heads down the same dark path.


Can't wait! What's a little scary is that everything I wrote above, which might read as flippant, is in fact 100% sincere. I do actually love Community like THAT. If you've not seen it, do yourself a favour and check Community out, I can't begin to co-sign this show strongly enough.

Childish Gambino talks Kanye West, Nas, Kendrick Lamar + more [Video]

Childish Gambino - Camp | Album Review



In 2011, a time when blog buzz reigns supreme, it's not uncommon for an artist to go from relatively unknown to hashtag sensation in an astoundingly short space of time. This year alone, Kreayshawn, Odd Future (as a collective), Tyler the Creator, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd and most recently, ASAP Rocky, have all joined the internet's A-list from near obscurity, sweeping up major label deals and putting on worldwide sold-out shows in the process. Unique on that list is Childish Gambino, an artist new to the masses but with a face already to familiar millions across America; the absurdly monikered Gambino is the rap alias of comedian and actor Donald Glover (no relation), who stars as Troy Barnes in the irresistible US sitcom Community.
