Recent news that ‘Community’ is being “held in reserve” by NBC for some sort of programming emergency and will not premiere as promised this month has left me in a very cynical state. (Epic run-on sentence, bro!) The expectation that my favorite NBC show is probably on short time is bothersome, but more distressing is the implied expectation from the network that no matter what they do with the property, it’s not going to get any more or less popular than it is right now. After a strong ending to Season 3, this season might have been something awesome, so clearly it was time to fire the show-runner and engage in endless shenanigans about time slots. The dark and cynical part of my brain is just hoping that the probably-never-going-to-be-released episodes already produced will at least make a cool DVD box set.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is VH1, Robocop 2 and Back to the Future 3. You’re the center slice of a square cheese pizza. Actually, that sounds delicious. I’m the center slice of a square cheese pizza. You’re Jim Belushi, asking: What act of “executive meddling” is the most unforgivable to you and your pop culture obsessions?
