Huh…. look at that. Community has been picked up by “Yahoo Screen.” I’ll grant that I’m not really a “fan” of the show per se (i’ve seen a couple episodes, they were funny enough, but you know, there’s a lot of tv out there) but I know a lot of people who were and “good for you” you get another season.
But for better or for worse I think it may be time to realize that television has devolved to a point where it is indistinguishable from podcasts. Be honest, show of hands, who the fuck has ever heard of Yahoo Screen before they read this announcement?
I mean, don’t get me wrong. Yay and stuff. I like that the internet provides an outlet for niche entertainment. God willing someone takes this to heart and I can get a network that gives me the second seasons of Automan, Manimal and Cop Rock that I have been waiting for.
It might be too meta to write a celebratory story about “Community” being saved when we’re the ones saving it… but it’s “Community”!
