If you love me, you would watch COMMUNITY tonight on NBC at 8 p.m.
Back in the early 2000s, I missed the big “Save Arrested Development” push that happened. Sadly, I’m afraid to admit, I just wasn’t into the show back then. I did gain my senses back and realized the error of my ways after watching all three seasons on Netflix. Holy crap, that show was awesome!
And, now, I live with this lifelong guilt knowing that my indifference to such a great television show helped push it into cancellation. The guilt has caused me ulcers, hair loss, and an overarching grouchy attitude that never goes away anymore.
This, my friends, will happen to you if COMMUNITY gets cancelled and you did nothing about it.
But what can I, one little human bean, do to make a difference?
Easy. Watch the show.
Being a huge FAN BOY of Jeff, Britta, Abed, Troy, Shirley, Pierce, Annie (mmm, Annie), and sometimes Chang, I have a vested interest in your guilty conscience. Watching my favorite show will help its ratings, increasing the likelihood it is picked up for a fourth season. Meaning I will be a happy-jack for another year (overarching grouchy attitude notwithstanding). The side benefit is that you will have 30 minutes of true television delight.
Sure, it comes on at 8 p.m., the same time as The Big Bang Theory, which is a fine show (despite the overwrought geek and nerd cliches). But that show gets 15 million viewers and is not in danger of walking the plank. DVR comes in handy in these situations. If you don’t have a DVR, let TBBT have a breather on the bench and try Jeff Winger and the gang.
So, I plead with you from the deepest pits of personal self interest–watch COMMUNITY. Don’t let it die like I helped let Arrested Development rot away into oblivion.
Here is my favorite COMMUNITY moment. Enjoy.
