It’s finally getting warmer, and pretty much all of the snow is gone here. Could it finally be…(gasp)…spring?! The mid-season TV programming is already in full swing—it seems like as soon as one show finishes, two more spring up to take its place. There is no rest for the weary for die-hard TV viewers, and to help you decide what to check out tonight, we’ve got some suggestions.
Community is always hit or miss for me—when it’s good, it’s really good and clever, but when it’s bad, it can be practically unwatchable, especially if it is a parody of something really obscure or just goes completely off-the-rails and crazy. The last few episodes have actually been quite entertaining. While I have never actually played Dungeons & Dragons, I was still able to enjoy the humor of last week’s episode, which found Professor Hickey reconnecting with his estranged son (guest-star David Cross) while competing in a game of D&D. The previous week’s episode also featured a fun game competition where Abed and Annie played a 1990s VCR game (starring Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan as a gold prospector) in order to determine who got to choose their new roommate.
However, even when the episodes don’t necessarily work for me, I like that this show never plays it safe and always stretches its creativity. So with the show currently on a roll (at least for me), I was really excited when I saw the ads for this week’s episode, which looks like the a parody of the 1980s G.I. Joe cartoon. I can’t wait to see where they go with this premise, but knowing the premise is only half the battle!
On tonight’s episode, “G.I. Jeff,” the study group embarks on an animated adventure inspired by “G.I. Joe.”
Check out the action tonight on NBC at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Elementary, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Grey’s Anatomy, Parks and Recreation, Hollywood Game Night, Parenthood, Surviving Jack, Suits, and Sirens.
