Remember all of the claymation Christmas specials when you were younger? I do. I used to be so excited every year when "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer" would air, for instance. What a special memory.
Well, NBC is bringing claymatian to the adults tonight. NBC will be airing a special Christmas episode of "Community"featuring brilliant stop-motion animation that will have everyone talking. They claim that whether you celebrate Christmas or not, and even if this is your first time tuning in to the show, we think you'll get a kick out of this clever episode!
I got to review it (until my streaming video stopped working) in advance for the OneToOne Network, and I love the Claymatian aspect for sure. The first few minutes parody jokes of how a Christian has to be politically correct and say Season;s Greetings instead of Merry Christmas (unfortunately.)
Or Let's watch the show together and chat about it's awesomeness on Twitter where @one2onenetwork will be giving away cool prizes via Twitter during the show likeSony Bloggie HD video cameras and"Community"Season 1 DVDs to name a few. We may even get a few of the cast members to join in live time!
Date: Thurs. Dec 9th
Time: 8pm EST /7pm CST
(Spoiler alert to our PST friends, you'll have to wait until 8 pm PST to see it)
Place: Twitter (Use #nbcCommunity & follow along) or Facebook
(Twitter names *missing*at press time- Chevy Chase & John Oliver)
"Community" is the comedy that stars Joel McHale (The Soup), Alison Brie (Mad Men), John Oliver (The Daily Show), Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Donald Glover (30 Rock), Ken Jeong (The Hangover) and Chevy Chase. (It topped NY Mag's Top 10 in TV in 2010)
The only versions of Community I've seen personally were just a small part of the Halloween special. I quit watching it pretty quick because I found it too gory and bloody because they had their zombies look like they were Really eating everybody. Too realistic for me. But from what I've seen of this episode in claymatian for Christmas, I look forward to seeing what Abed decides about how he feels about the holiday, and I'll be watching tonight.
