COMMUNITY: Season 2 Starts with Betty White, a Trip to Space and a Couple Awesome Holidays

September 23, 2010 by  

Scheduled opposite THE BIG BANG THEORY — a serious ratings winner — this season, COMMUNITY creator Dan Harmon is pulling out all the stops to make sure every killer episode that’s been living in his head comes to our TV screens this fall… just in case the show gets canceled.

Of course, as a huge fan of the brilliantly written sitcom, I’m betting that NBC will stick with it for some time given its creative genius and critical buzz.

Still, numbers are important too, you guys, so please watch COMMUNITY tonight. DVRs were invented so we can see both NBC’s line up and CBS’ too. Let’s take advantage of that.

As Harmon tells us in the video interview below, he’s got a lot on tap this year: “In the first six [episodes], we’re doing stuff that you shouldn’t be allowed to do in an entire season.”

There’s a space ship ep that simulates the study group going into the cosmos. There’s a half hour with Rob Corddry and Drew Carey, during which we’ll visit Jeff’s old law firm. There’s an extravagant Halloween episode, which star Gillian Jacobs (Britta) says will top last year’s ep — and, yeah, when you see Senor Chang’s costume, you’ll agree. And there’s a Christmas episode which will be completely in the animated stop-motion medium like the old Christmas classics that brought us joy as kids.

Watch the clip below to hear Harmon explain how this is all going to work and why he’s so proud of these upcoming stories.

And don’t forget to tune in tonight for Ms. Betty White as she guest stars in COMMUNITY’s season 2 premiere, playing an anthropology professor who teaches Jeff a lesson or two… something he’s sorely in need of since he made out with Annie just moments after publicly rejecting Britta last spring.

When the show returns this evening — on the first day of school — this matter will most definitely be revealed and pondered and discussed. And we’ll get to see Jeff shirtless… which is really all you needed to hear, right?

COMMUNITY season 2 premieres tonight, Thurs., Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
