Yep, Community‘s getting a 6th season, and if you’re a sane person, your reaction to this news should probably look a little something like this:
Community is a bad show, people. Really bad. And it’s been bad for a long time and continued to get worse.

It actually has been one ******* ****** day, so buckle up.

Yeah, these guys have been through before. I’m not sure if it’s a monthly thing, or if they go for it whenever they can sneak in (I’m pretty sure the management, slum-lords though they are, haven’t signed off on this).
For the most part they just roll up and down the streets in the complex at a couple miles an hour and shout through the loudspeakers that we have got to accept the Jesus into our hearts as lord and savior and…
Well, that’s about it really. And it’s junk like this which is the subject of today’s post. Continue reading
