NBC's hilarious comedy, Community, is a brilliant series about a group of misfits that attend Greendale Community College.
About Community's Characters:
At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, "The Soup"), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group that eventually learns more about themselves than their course work.
Also among the series stars who comprise the group are: comedy legend Chevy Chase as Pierce, a man whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom; Gillian Jacobs as Britta, the 20-something dropout with something to prove; Yvette Nicole Brown as Shirley, a sassy middle-aged divorcée; Danny Pudi as Abed, a pop culture junkie; Alison Brie ("Mad Men") as Annie, a high-strung perfectionist; Donald Glover ("30 Rock") as Troy, a former high school football star trying to find his way, and Ken Jeong ("The Hangover") as Señor Chang.
Thursday, December 9, 2010 a special stop motion animation episode will air! In this episode the meaning of Christmas is lost and Abed's intense fixation on Christmas concerns the group.
When Abed wakes up in stop-motion animation, he takes it as a sign that he and the group must re-discover the meaning of Christmas. Meanwhile, Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta become growingly concerned about Abed's mental health and enlist the help of Professor Duncan. The group undergoes hypnosis to explore Abed's winter wonderland and soon unravel the truth behind Abed’s madness. Chevy Chase, Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover, and Ken Jeong also star.
NBC's Community is a brilliantly hilarious show, first and foremost. I'm a huge fan of The Office and caught onto watching Community thanks to it airing on Thursday nights with The Office. So, imagine how excited I am when the opportunity to review Community's stop-motion animated Christmas episode early comes along!
This is simply a super fun episode. A must see for all Community fans and those that love Christmas themed anything. The characters even sing for us- the very last song being my favorite. The total awesomeness is that the plot is funny AND has a wonderful Christmas "meaning." I'm so impressed they thought of doing stop-motion for Community- and actually pulled it off! The characters were able to do more zanier, silly things in their claymation forms- which makes it a must see all in itself. And, especially with Christmas around the corner, who doesn't want a little change of pace? Frankly, I could use a little more stop-motion animation in my life ;)
Must must must see! I hope you get the opportunity to watch it Thursday, December 9th at 8PM EST!
