NBC still seems as ‘proud as a peacock’


Welcome to the second edition of Theoretical Thursdays this summer. For the first article click here. This week we have the visual history of the NBC logo. Oh, and no, I haven’t yet forgiven their executives for canceling Community. John J. Graham’s peacock logo debuted in homes on May 22, 1956, to advertise the recent switch of television … Continue reading

▶ Coneheads Create Old-School Commercial Comedy


State Farm collides with the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary this summer. The Coneheads prove they’ve still got comedic chops, now in the 21st century, even at 3 am. You may now consume mass quantities. ▶ State Farm® Coneheads Commercial – Behind the Scenes – YouTube.

Copyright conflicts create chaos


Seen here as the logo from 1975 the NBC color block “N” cost the National Broadcasting Company some serious cash. This short-lived abstract N logo was first unveiled on October 1975 and premiered on-air January 1, 1976, nicknamed the “Trapezoid N”.  In 1976, a lawsuit was issued by a public television broadcaster in Nebraska named Nebraska … Continue reading

Top Annie Moments #sixseasonsandamovie


No one plays paintball like the cast of Community, and no one can freak out over pen theft quite like Alison Brie! Enjoy this week’s Friday Fun featuring quite possibly my favorite television show ever.

Counting down to ‘Community’


The Christmas season is full of creativity and cheer, but now that it’s December 26 I’m counting the days not until New Year’s but until NBC debuts the hour long Community season five premiere! That’s right HOUR LONG PREMIERE! #sixseasonsandamovie I’m obsessed. I admit it. But I’ve been watching this show for a long time now.

Have Yourself a ‘Community’ Christmas


The cast of Community get’s animated! This crew is known for crazy shenanigans from felt puppets to epic games of D&D. It stands to reason the whole cast would get animated eventually. First season: Anthony Michael Hall-smashing fisticuffs…second season: claymation…third season: a ‘Glee’fully hilarious musical…fourth season: holiday hostages! I know because I’ve collected the first … Continue reading

Creating a Community is an important part of Christmas


Yes by now it should be obvious that I really like NBC’s sitcom Community.

‘Community’ returns January 2


So having a week off has given me time to spend time with friends and family, decorate, bake, and binge watch one of the best sitcoms on television right now. Okay, okay in a little over a week. This show has a ball not a ‘Bang’ and I love it because I can actually follow … Continue reading

Jimmy Fallon and friends bring festive fun


Saturday Night Live has been getting much better this year, but turning Jimmy Fallon into a Christmas tradition is a stroke of genius on Lorne Michael’s part. They had me rolling all night right from the jump. This may not be their best skit of the night (they were all pretty great), but it’s my … Continue reading

It’s December 10th!


Shirley Bennett is one of the best tv moms since Lorelai Gilmore. She’s flawed, but she cares, and the group would easily get out of hand without her as a moral compass of sorts. Shirley is judgmental, too, but she also forgives. It’s refreshing to see a Christian character instead of a caricature of a … Continue reading

Community creates celebration content


In case you missed it yesterday I am a big Community fan! I’ve hardly missed an episode since I came dashing home from class on a Thursday evening five years ago to see what this intriguing new pilot was about especially since it followed Tina Fey’s cult comedy 30 Rock. And so here we are: fall. … Continue reading

Best of Troy and Abed #sixseasonsandamovie


You know you’re a fanatic when a TV show comes along and several seasons down the line you’ve barely missed an episode since the pilot (the first episode) debuted. Joel McHale (The Soup), Gillian Jacobs, and Dan Harmon caught my attention early and have held me captive ever since despite NBC’s best efforts to cancel … Continue reading

Sunshine and Rainbows spring smiles


It’s early summer in Alabama which means have storm supplies ready. However, after the rain comes the rainbows. I hope that holds true in life as well as in nature.

The Today Show, Paula Deen stops by UAB


The Today Show’s Al Roker rolled into the Magic City with 10 truckloads of relief items for survivors of the April 27 tornbados that swept through the state. Food Network celebrity Paula Deen and her family joined the NBC weatherman on campus in front of the Alys Stephens Center while the Gospel Choir performed. The … Continue reading
