The halls of Greendale Community College just became a bit less bubbly and quite a bit darker. Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays sandwich shop owner and study group member Shirley Bennett on NBC-now-Yahoo! Screen’s Community, has announced that she will be leaving the series, TV Guide reports. The actress was asked to be released from her contract with the show due to family concerns, specifically caring for her father, who is ill. (more…)
Community has returned after a three month hiatus that had fans freakin’ out with fear their favorite comedy was gettin’ axed. Thankfully, Community prevailed and is back where it belongs, Thursday nights at 8pm on NBC. Make sure you join us every week as we recap the continuing exploits of Greendale’s most infamous study group.
Tying things back to “Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts” in where Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) and Pierce (Chevy Chase) had hoped to open their own sandwich shop in the cafeteria, last night the brand new Subway was unveiled. Once the Dean (Jim Rash) managed to chew through the ribbon, that is. Bitter their dreams have been crapped on by corporate America, Shirley and Pierce are determined to bring down Subway by any means necessary.

Last night’s episode, “Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts” was for a Community episode, pretty normal. In fact, “what is normal?” was what this episode was all about. It’s almost as if this was meant to hook new viewers tuning in who might have been initially turned off by the constant barrage of pop culture references and absolutely insane situations common at Greendale. Personally, that’s what I love about the show but last night’s episode also proved these characters can grow and develop moreso than most sitcom characters are ever allowed to.
Right off the bat we depart from what’s normal for Community and have an episode focused on Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown). She’s always been the most underused character on the show and it’s great to finally have an episode where she shines. It begins with Shirley and Pierce (Chevy Chase) contemplating a joint business venture with a sandwich shop but that’s immediately interupted by Shirley’s ex, Andre (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) serenading her a la Boys II Men and proposing, again. She accepts, again, and we’re off with a wedding episode. Those pull in the high ratings, right? Good, because this is Community‘s chance to finally win over anyone not yet in on the joke and maybe stick around for those six seasons and a movie.
Community is everywhere right now and it couldn’t make me happier. The show everyone feared would never return now seems to be well on their way to six seasons and a movie. You hear that!? Movie. Now. Please. Thanks.
Yesterday we shared part one of the mini-mini-series of animated shorts, “Abed’s Master Key“, and today we’re back with part two!
Called that Lord of the Rings analogy.
Giving Brita the key is such a terrible, terrible idea. Can’t wait to see what hilarious results come of it. Also, was Jeff even if this short? He must be really upset about losing the study group table. Or, his alter ego, Joel McHale was too busy being awesome on The Soup, where he and Brita’s other self, Gillan Jacobs shared an all new trailer for Community‘s return.
Remember, March 15th at 8pm on NBC. Watch it live so Community can win all the ratings!

Community will once again be gracing our Thurday night at 8pm come March 15th, but until then NBC is keeping us jacked up on Greendale with these new animated shorts. The first part of the mini-mini series, “Abed’s Master Key” is now available to watch, check it out below.
I love the immediate references to them being animated, it’s exactly what I’d expect from the self referential comedy. As usual, the Dean steals the show, kind of like Jim Rash as The Oscars. Hey, what a minute?! What do you think will come from Abed’s new found power? Was that some kind of Gollum-like glint in his eye when he received the key?
Check back tomorrow for part two! And don’t forget about Community returning to television on March 15th.
