We close tonight’s quick and dirty multimedia extravaganza with a little bit about Community. First, I’m still glowing with the knowledge that it will be coming back, as is the blogosphere. Hollywood.com has published a list of 10 Community Episodes That Couldn’t Exist Without Dan Harmon. Also, last night’s episode provides us with one quintessentially great Abed moment, plucked from a field abloom with great Abed moments. This one is for all you Brett Ratner fans out there.
