Now that Community has two new producers, David Guarascio and Moses Port, I feel akin to a protective father. I want to like them, but really, I want to know what their intentions are with my baby.

After Hypable live-blogged the panel while I salivated from home at the thought of seeing the cast of my favorite quirky comedy in one room, I decided the announcements required some analysis. A.k.a., what will all these crazy changes, from the firing of creator Dan Harmon to the announcement that the entire cast will return to the Friday move, mean for Community‘s future?

According to our live blog the producers made a tall promise:

The only thing the producers care about is keeping this strange wonderful gem that it is.

Okay, that’s what every proverbial father wants to hear, that you want to cultivate what’s good in Community, but is this just talk? I did a little research on these two new producers who fill big shoes this fall, and was shocked by how little I could dig up on the duo. Isn’t this the digital age where I should be able to know too much about strangers without having to exert excessive effort?? Google, for once, you have failed me.

Here’s what I could find according to IMDB: The two co-produced Just Shoot Me! – a show that starred David Spade, George Segal and Laura San Giacomo in the late 90s to the early 2000s – and then produced Aliens in America starring Adhir Kalyan and Dan Byrd from 2007 to 2008, and most recently, Happy Endings, starring Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert and Damon Wayans Jr. from 2011 to present.

Here’s the good that I gathered from this info: Just Shoot Me lasted for seven seasons, getting us closer to our goal of #sixseasonsandamovie, and Happy Endings was just renewed for a third season. Neither seems to have any bashing media stories about fighting with cast members (a la Harmon and Chevy Chase). And they are relatively unknown, so they aren’t going to come in with huge egos (or so we hope).

Here’s the bad that I gathered: though I have not seen any of these shows personally, from what I read (plus I remember seeing previews for Aliens in America) the duo’s shows have not turned out to be stellar comedies (yes, yes, I’m being judgmental just shoot me … see what I did there?!). Furthermore, the two seem to have no real substantive connection to Community, and by no substantive connection I mean no connection at all. If they have never written or produced a single episode, how can they take over and maintain the show’s precarious and precious integrity? What are your thoughts on the new producers? Any dish to share on the two?

There are small signs of hope, since they recently met with remaining veteran writers (though there aren’t too too many post-Harmon’s not-so-nice departure) to discuss how to maintain the show’s vision. They receive one, begrudging, gold star from this ardent fan.

Besides the producer change, there has been a lot of buzz about the fact that the entire cast will be returning to Community, considering many thought Chevy Chase may be on the way out. This is a good sign, because despite the fact that we often want to punch Pierce in the face through the television, the study group would not be the same without him.

The move to Friday seems daunting. Community barely scraped by with a shortened fourth season renewal, and the move to a less popular day seems not so good. But honestly, for many viewers who watch the show via Hulu and other online outlets, it doesn’t really affect the watching of the show. The bigger question is how will it affect the already low ratings? For now, we’ll cross our fingers for #sixseasonsandamovie, but only if done with the integrity of the show intact.

To end on a high note, the spoilers released in the panel sound amazing: Pierce’s mansion, Jeff’s father, an Inspector Spacetime convention and more animation (four gold stars for the new producers on those). Also, check out this video of the show’s season 3 gag reel that debuted at the panel and is now available for your viewing pleasure. I lol-ed and lol-ed a lot (if that means anything). Watch it then tell me your thoughts on the tons o’ Community news we received today:

With Captain America: Civil War coming to theaters this week in the U.S., the Russo brothers are teasing their plans for Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2!

In an interview with Uproxx, the Russo brothers revealed that they believe that the current titles for the next Avengers films are misleading. Joe Russo stated, “The movies are two very different movies.” However, the current title makes it feel as though it’s the same story just split into two different films. It looks like that’s not what they’re going for, though.

“The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it. And, yes, that is a scoop: we will retitle them,” Joe Russo went on to say in the interview. Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 is currently scheduled for release on May 4, 2018 so it may be quite a while before we learn what the new title is. Thanos will be serving as the main antagonist in both of the films, with the conflict revolving around the Infinity Stones.

Before we even get to Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1, Marvel still has several movies to release. Including, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther.

Marvel recently pulled Inhumans from their upcoming Phase Three slate. It was supposed to be released July 12, 2019 after the release of Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2. It’s still unclear whether the film is cancelled entirely or if it is simply being pushed back.

Are you glad to hear ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ will be retitled?

Cami O’Connell has always been wise beyond her years and station on The Originals, and we will carry her most important words with us for a long time to come.

Cami O’Connell may not have survived Lucien’s bite on The Originals season 3, episode 19, but her words and wisdom will never be forgotten. She helped Klaus find peace and goodness in the world, she showed Davina that she is powerful enough to make her own destiny, and she constantly reminded everyone on that show that rising above one’s circumstances and being a good person is completely possible, even in the supernatural world.

Thinking back to all the incredible moments we had with Cami over the three seasons she was a part of The Originals, we tried to find a worthy enough way to pay our respects to her character. She was constantly dishing out incredible advice and knowledge, some of which is applicable to the world at large. Here are a few of our very favorite Cami quotes:

‘The Originals’ season 1, episode 4, ‘Girl in New Orleans’

“People are not awful. They want to be good. Something makes them bad, makes them snap. There are always signs. Symptoms before someone has a psychotic break.”

‘The Originals’ season 1, episode 8, ‘The River in Reverse’

“You are the architect of your own happiness.”

‘The Originals’ season 1, episode 16, ‘Farewell to Storyville’

“No one can control you unless you let them.”

‘The Originals’ season 2, episode 4, ‘Live and Let Die’

“This is a city of death, fires, floods. To say nothing of the violence we do to each other. We may laissez les bon temps rouler, but really we’ve turned life into one big party to distract ourselves from a single, unavoidable truth: We’re all going to die.”

Cami The Originals season 2 episode 4 Live and Let Die

“There’s more to life than the pain they made you feel. A cold beer, a slow song, a good friend. There are good things, Klaus, and you need to see that, too. There’s no real peace in revenge.”

‘The Originals’ season 2, episode 6, ‘Wheel Inside the Wheel’

“You know, sometimes I ask myself why I let people like Klaus into my life. I have this destructive pattern. I’m always drawn to the bad boys. Maybe deep down, I feel like that’s what I deserve.”

‘The Originals’ season 3, episode 19 ‘No More Heartbreaks’

“I was never naive enough to think that I was your light, but there is light in you. All that anger, the cycle of abuse that Mikael began, you can end it. You have to, so you can be the light for your little girl. For Hope.”

“Love will make you strong. It will make you the man that I know you want to be, and you have to remember that because I won’t be here to remind you.”

Which quote will you remember Cami for?

Another nail has just been placed through the cable box coffin: Hulu has just confirmed reports that they’re putting together a live TV service.

Speaking in front of advertisers on Wednesday morning, Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins said that live TV on Hulu is in the pipeline and will offer consumers a way to watch network and cable channels live via Hulu’s suite of apps.

Hopkins’ comments arrive on the heels of a report in the Wall Street Journal which first revealed the streaming service’s plans. According to that report, ESPN, ABC, Disney, Fox News, FX are the first channels set to join Hulu’s live TV service. Hopkins didn’t confirm any channels during his presentation this morning.

When it launches, Hulu will likely have one of the best shots at making a live TV streaming service take off, and it may seriously disrupt the traditional cable box business. The only other major service currently offering live TV via streaming is Sling TV (with plans starting at $20/month), but unlike Hulu, Sling lacks brand recognition.

Over the past couple of years it’s been widely report that Apple has made several attempts at creating a live TV service like the one Hulu is trying to put together, but the iPhone maker has run into trouble striking deals with the various networks.

Hulu’s current packages allow consumers to watch TV shows from most of the major channels the day after they air on traditional television. Plans start at $7.99 per month.

For some fans, watching TV shows live is important so they can live tweet or discuss their shows elsewhere online immediately after they air. A live TV service from Hulu could cause many people to get rid of their traditional cable boxes, which tend to come saddled with bad user interfaces and extra fees.

Are you tentatively interested in Hulu’s live TV service?

The price of the service will be an important factor in how many people subscribe, of course. Hopefully it’s cheaper than most cable subscriptions.
