Joel McHale and Chevy Chase in Community

I am honestly shocked and a little lost for words- in a good way. With all of the possible companies that could have swooped in to save Community, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or even a traditional cable channel like USA or TNT, I never in a middle years thought that it would be Yahoo to save the day. That is right, the search engine and email website, the one that seems like it has been dying for the past decade showed up when all hope had been lost and will bring us one step closer to #SixSeasonsAndAMovie.

Not much is known about the deal. We do know that the cast and creator Dan Harmon will return for 13 new episodes that will air exclusively on Yahoo Screen in the fall. Screen is the new streaming offshoot of Yahoo that works similar to Hulu, with shows airing online with commercial breaks. Yahoo Screen had previously announced two new original programs, Other Space from Paul Feig and Sin City Saints from Bryan Gordon and Mike Tollin. Both of these shows will have 8 episode seasons, with all of the episodes being released on the same day (the same model that Netflix uses). It is unknown if they will do the same for the new season of Community.

Excited that Community is returning? What are you hoping for in the new season? With the show moving online, they can pretty much do anything they want.

We are very excited about our latest giveaway! A big thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment for providing My Hollywood Dream with a copy of The LEGO Movie on Blu-Ray to give to one of our awesome readers! First, lets take a look at the movie’s official description and then check out the “EVERYTHING IS AWESOME” GIF creator in The LEGO Movie App.

The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.

Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC’s Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.

Guest post of the week by Monte Dominguez.

Ah… no more re-runs! It was so difficult for me to wait until Thursday on the opening week of NBC’s fall programming especially since I have direct tv HD. The peacock network is finally returning to its “must-see” sit-com status on Thursday nights with new episodes of “Community,” “30 Rock,” “The Office,” and the all-new “Outsourced.”

The best of the group, at least in my opinion, was the second-season premiere of “Community.” My satellite tv reception never looked so good as when I kicked my feet up while the great ensemble cast prepared for another semester at Greendale College. The interplay between Greendale’s coolest study group (made up of Joel McHale as ‘Jeff,’ Gillian Jacobs as ‘Britta,’ Chevy Chase as ‘Pierce,’ Yvette Nicole Brown as ‘Shirley,’ Danny Pudi as ‘Abed,’ Donald Glover as ‘Troy,’ and Alison Brie as ‘Annie’) was as clever as ever. The best example: when it is revealed that Jeff and Britta had sex at the end of season one on the group’s conference table, everyone jumps up with a collective “AHHH!!!” that nearly masks Troy’s true reaction of “AHHH-SOME!!!”

My favorite part of the season premiere, though, had to be the guest-starring appearance of comedy legend Betty White as the group’s new anthropology professor. Thanks to her, the show’s writers were able to resolve the issues remaining from the first season without being overly sentimental.

Community‘s score? A+!
