Fall TV preview: Community

Returning comedy, 8-8:30PM, NBC

Posted on

Okay, Team Community, how long until we discover the ramifications of that season-ending smooch between Jeff (Joel McHale) and Annie (Alison Brie)? ”It’s absolutely dealt with in the first episode,” says creator Dan Harmon. But that may be the least of the study group’s concerns once everyone meets their kooky anthropology professor (guest star Betty White). ”All teachers are insane, but this one’s seen what William Hurt has seen in Altered States,” Harmon jokes, making a movie reference Abed (Danny Pudi) would appreciate. Also on this season’s syllabus: Troy (Donald Glover) moves into Pierce’s (Chevy Chase) mansion, Jeff’s agnosticism will be tested when a friend’s relative dies, and in an extended homage to Apollo 13 and The Right Stuff, the group will enroll in Greendale’s new space program.
