“ANALYSIS OF CORK-BASED NETWORKING”
01/30/2014 (08:00PM – 08:30PM) (Thursday) : ANNIE AND PROFESSOR HICKEY TEAM UP TO NAVIGATE GREENDALE’S CUSTODIAL CORRIDORS OF POWER – NATHAN FILLION AND KUMAIL NANJIANI GUEST STAR – It’s time for the midterm dance and Annie (Alison Brie) sets about getting the Greendale cafeteria ready for the festivities. She and Professor Hickey (guest star Jonathan Banks, “Breaking Bad”) team to navigate Greendale’s custodial corridors of power and must negotiate with Bob Waite (guest star Nathan Fillion, “Castle”), the politically savvy Greendale head custodian, and his right-hand man Lapari (Kumail Nanjiani, “Franklin & Bash”). They must also contend with Debra Chambers (guest star Paget Brewster, “Criminal Minds”), Greendale’s head of I.T. and Waldron (guest star Robert Patrick, “Identity Thief”), Greendale’s head of parking, in what becomes an increasingly complex hierarchy of staff. Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong also star. Jerry Minor (“Arrested Development”) and Brie Larson (“United States of Tara”) also guest star.
Are you guys done now?
We’re done – I’m just walking off the lot now. And it’s so strange, because they’ve already broken down the whole set. We’re only shooting these thirteen episode seasons, so they tear down the entire thing. It’s so sad.
And they’ll build it again next year?
Right, right. Or maybe never again. Maybe that’s why it’s sad.
So you’re talking to me instead of celebrating?
Yeah, you’re helping me through the pain.
How does it feel to have the gang back together?
It’s great. I’ve seen the first episode and some of the other ones and they’re just great. It’s so wonderful having Dan [Harmon] back. The material is excellent. I think it’s better than it’s ever been, which is super strange for the fifth season of a show. Having done last season without Dan, I think that everyone was really rejuvenated to have him back and to be back at all. Every year we think that we’re not coming back, especially last year, so there was general excitement just to be back and have Dan back and see what he was going to come up with. And as we shot the season, the material just got better and better.

Jeff is home alone for the holidays when he gets an unexpected surprise from all of his friends at Greendale. Community premieres January 2 at 8/7c on NBC.
Musical comedy stage duo Zabruso and Alison Brie’s singing trio The Girls sent out an original new Christmas song that takes a cynical look at Christmas for those over 25. The card was sent this week as a Holiday greeting to all their industry colleagues before starting to spread through Twitter to the internet’s very large and vocal Community fanbase.
