“6 Seasons And A Movie”: Community Fans Flashmob 30 Rock

It was a worryingly modest showing, to be honest. The Observer had to look hard for the small group of fans, who had been shunted to one side of the plaza.

But we found them all right—they were all wearing felt facial hair, one of the many references to the show they implemented in their protest. As we walked over we heard another. “Six seasons and a movie!” they chanted, barely audible over the Christmas cheer. It was a chant used by one of the characters.

“These fans are not only here but they’re rabid,” a young fan enthused. “Community is one of the smartest and most funny shows on television.”

“Was!” someone shouted.

Then the group was moved to song. Their rendition of “Oh Christmas, Troy,” was the third and final reference to the show (unless any more went over our heads). Meanwhile, The Observer spoke with another fan about the turnout.

“It’s a little disappointing but I think we’ve got enough attention,” he said.

    I think it was adorable. Plus they all had fun so I think it was alright. At least they did something. How many tv shows have had this reaction before? none as i recall

      “Community” is a clever TV show, but if the cancellation of a TV show is what you’re choosing to protest (given all the terrible shit going on in the world), you’ve got your priorities fucked up.

        @082ca6c79cdfe56378c242e2456e8c73:disqus   – Family Guy and Arrested Development to name two.

        @AlexRCarbajal:disqus – Maybe the fact that there is so much terrible shit going on in the world is why people want this show back. Maybe it gives them some tiny bit of joy to distract them momentarily from all of the bullshit. Did you ever think of that? Plus, if you want someone to un-fuck their priorities and protest the terrible shit going on in the world. they had better quit their job and clear their schedules for the next infinite years.

    Community is the most cleverly written show on t.v. today! The protest was a great idea!  Dry original humor takes intelligent writers, and you know how rare they are,  if you have the unfortunate experience of watching the usual comedy shows. In a world where the news is depressing, we need a truly engaging, unique show for a diversion. Please post an address that we may email or text to for a formal protest that will
    actually reach the persons responsible for deciding as to whether or
    not  the show will be cancelled.

    If you don’t think people need a break from stress with this great show,
    have a little mercy for all the people in front of and behind the
    scenes who will lose their jobs in this economy.
