Gillian Jacobs explains why 'Community' is peaking in season 5
Rejoice, human beings! Community is back, inching ever closer to actually fulfilling its “six seasons and a movie” destiny. Yet even as rabid as some fans may be, and even as exciting as the news is that show creator Dan Harmon has returned, there are still many who have yet to give the off-the-wall NBC comedy a chance. Rather than conduct an Inspector Spacetime investigation into this ongoing mystery, we enlisted Community cast member Gillian Jacobs to explain exactly why people should be tuning into season 5. And she did just that when she stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studios.
Now you can hear the entire conversation right here on the InsideTV Podcast. Jacobs talks all about the return of fired showrunner Harmon, discusses how her character of Britta has evolved (devolved?) since the show began, and reveals how much she actually understands when she first picks up a Community script. There is also a tangent about “stolen touchdowns” that is most certainly worth your time. It’s a must-listen for any fan of either Community or Torg the troll.
But that’s not all, because we then step into whooooooooose house? Run’s house!!!! (Sorry, 1980s rap reference there.) Rev Run himself stopped by the EW Radio studios with his lovely wife Justine to talk all about their new DIY show, Rev Run’s Renovation. Does the master M.C. know anything about home renovation? And can his marriage survive a house being turned upside down in order to install such things as a princess bed with a slide in his daughter’s room? I chat with hip-hop royalty about all that and more.
