On Wednesday, TV critic Alan Sepinwall of Hitfix.com reported that NBC has picked up an additional two episodes of “Community” for this season, bringing the total to 24. While it would be easy for an excitable, hyperbole prone, law student in his late 20s (and we could be talking about anybody here) to proclaim that this can only be interpreted as a show of confidence as well as a sign that “Community” will win like a million Emmys every year and go down as a the most important half hour television program in world history, there are still some hoops to jump through. Like, you know, getting picked up for a third season. Baby steps, people.
Now all we need to do is get it a better time slot, away from the Death Star sized nerd-shadow of “The Big Bang Theory” and behind a strong lead-in. Because if “Community” goes the way of “Arrested Development,” and then they tease us with a movie for years, and then the creator and one of the stars team up for a critically and commercially disappointing follow up, so help me God, I’ll… do… uh, something. Admittedly, I haven’t thought this through. But whatever it is, you’ll know it when it happens, NBC. MY RAGE WILL BE NOTICED! (*shakes fist towards Comcast cable box*). AAARRRRGGHHH!

Oh hey, did you guys know Alison Brie was on Craig Ferguson’s show last week? Pretty good interview. She’s really quick on her feet. Not that we didn’t already know that. We’ll catch her one day, guys. (*patiently awaits Acme brand actress trap to come in the mail*)
