Help Kickstart Untitled Web Series About A Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time Season Two

fb share tweet share

Community fans rejoice, and rejoice some more! Technically you don’t have to follow Community to be excited about this, but it seems like a natural place to begin. I mean, obviously Whovians will get a kick out of it, but…Wait, what was I talking about?

Oh yes, the not-at-all-Doctor Who-or-Community-related show Untitled Web Series About A Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time – starring Travis Richey as a character who may or may not resemble Abed and Troy’s favorite TV character, Inspector Spacetime – will be returning for a second season, assuming its Kickstarter campaign is successful. The first season (consisting of 6 3-4 minute episodes) raised its budget of $25,000 through the crowd sourcing platform, and now the team is looking for $125,000 for the follow-up. There’s so much more space and so much more time to explore.

Cross The Streams: Learn About The Prophets Of Science Fiction And Get Animated With Tron

Greetings, stream queens and kings. We are gathered here at different points during today to witness another joining of you and everything sci-fi that hit streaming websites this past week. Admittedly, it wasn’t the strongest week for movie releases, but quality TV gives everybody more stuff to enjoy anyway, so take it in the face, movies. By the authority vested in me by Giant Freakin’ Robot, I now pronounce the names of these shows correctly.

Prophets of Science Fiction (Netflix)

This Science Channel series was produced and hosted by Ridley Scott, though Jonathan Adams narrates each episode, which focus on eight different monoliths who meshed science and science fiction. It doesn’t go much deeper than a cursory research session would go, but the subjects are interesting ones nonetheless. Philip K. Dick is the entryway to virtual reality, H.G. Wells’ work begins a look at time travel, and George Lucas’ filmmaking is used to talk about energy weapons. It’s well produced and a lot better than reading Wikipedia for 40 minutes.

Community Trailer Teases Hunger Games, Star Wars Parodies

fb share tweet share

It’s been so long since we’ve seen new episodes of Community, it was beginning to feel like we’d never see it again. The fourth season was trimmed down to 13 episodes and delayed time and time again, but this week finally brings the long-awaited season premiere. Assuming, of course, NBC doesn’t push it back yet again before Thursday.

Some of Community’s most popular bits are the spoofs of big pop cultural institutions. The latest “Epic” teaser trailer takes shots at recent phenomena like The Hunger Games, as well as classic sci-fi classics like Star Wars, and something that resembles, but as we all know is not, Doctor Who.

What Would Happen If Doctor Who And Inspector Spacetime Collided?

fb share tweet share

NBC’s embattled sitcom Community may be the nerdiest show on television that doesn’t actively feature a robot or space aliens. In three seasons the intrepid students of Greendale Community College have faced down a zombie apocalypse, piloted a space shuttle (sort of), lived through a Claymation holiday episode, and become characters in an 8-bit videogame. Hell, there’s a Beastmaster gag in the first Halloween episode (that’s the moment where I climbed fully on board the Community train).

For those of you not familiar with Community, one of the main characters, Abed (Danny Pudi), has become obsessed with a long-running British science fiction show called Inspector Spacetime. Some of you may notice similarities between Inspector Spacetime and another series, also British, also about an individual who travels through space and time with loyal companions, that has also been on the air for multiple decades. We are, of course, talking about Doctor Who. The two are distinct entities, in a legal sense, and any similarities are purely coincidental. Still, one can’t help but wonder what would happen if those two completely different things came together. I wonder what that would look like? (Click the image below for a larger version.)

Watch Community’s Hunger Games Tribute

fb share tweet share

Pop! Pop! With Community’s season four premiere set for February, there has been a lot of drama behind the scenes of NBC’s cult comedy series on NBC. Community’s creator and showrunner Dan Harmon was fired after the third-season finale, staff writers are jumping ship to other network comedies, and series regular Chevy Chase has left the series with only two episodes left in the fourth season. But now there’s a silver lining: NBC has released a teaser, which highlights Community’s tribute to The Hunger Games. Watch the teaser below.

First Episode Of The Community-Inspired Not-Inspector-Spacetime Web Series Has Arrived

fb share tweet share

The next season of NBC’s brilliant, Hugo-nominated Community is in many ways a big question mark. While the primary cast will be returning for a fourth season, creator/showrunner Dan Harmon was unceremoniously booted from the job and replaced earlier this year, leaving the show in the hands of Moses Port and David Guarascio, a pair who have previously worked on shows such as Happy Endings and Just Shoot Me. So while it remains to be seen if nu-Community will have the same magic as the Harmon years, the fans’ passion for the show hasn’t dimmed. They’re still out there making crazy Community homages like this, the first episode of a web series that is in no way related to Community‘s “Inspector Spacetime.”
