Well good morning! *amb stretches luxuriously, looks around, and nods*
You’re all looking particularly lovely today, if you don’t mind my saying. Never mind the weather and the traffic and anything else you have going on that is stressing you out today – you’re gorgeous. And do you know why? Because today is a spectacular, gorgeous, spectacularly gorgeous day. Today, my friends, is October 19th.
October 19th, for the uninitiated (and don’t worry, I still think you’re gorgeous) is when the powers-that-be at NBC television originally promised that new episodes of “Community” would begin.
“Community”, for the uninitiated, (and yup – still gorgeous) is one of My Favourite Television Shows You’ve Never Heard Of, and is one of the BoFN boys’ favourite shows, and is basically the reason why I started swooning over
Dave this blog in the first place.
Naturally, the folks at NBC changed their minds, as network big kahunas are wont to do; also naturally, the folks at “Community” mocked them for it, as scrappy, sarcastic, and seriously underrated actors are wont to do themselves.
The end result of all this “wonting” is that the phrase October 19th became shorthand among fans for that magical day whenever “Community” makes its way to our television screens. And as you’ve probably guessed from my effusive opening paragraph, that magical day is today!
Now, I realize I’ve gone a full 242 words here without mentioning a single Funny Name. Allow me to make amends. On behalf of fans everywhere, I would like to say thank you to the following funnily named individual who is responsible for directing tonight’s episode: Tristram Shapeero.
Besides having an awesome name that sounds like it belongs in a 1920s Agatha Christie novel, Tristram’s Funny Name credentials include being born in Bath. Not a bath, but the Bath, in Somerset, UK.
He also directed one of my personal favourite “Community” episodes ever, “Contemporary American Poultry” …
… and that’s all the research I’ve done. I’m sorry you guys, but I just came back to the blog after spending the past three hours watching “Community” episodes on Youtube, and I’ve completely lost my train of thought.
Happy October 19th, everyone!
