Omigod, Community Had a Beetlejuice Easter Egg That Was Three Seasons In the Making [Video]
And Fansplosions Abound
I don’t even know where to start with this. Dan Harmon‘s Community, which recently transformed Twitter in a seething cauldron of angst because it was inexplicably removed from NBC‘s mid-season lineup (while Whitney, like a cockroach, somehow remained), has a special relationship with its audience. That relationship entails going against what network sitcoms are supposed to do and consistently raising the bar. The first time the writers treated us to a secret surprise was when Abed (Danny Pudi) was part of a stealth storyline in which he delivered a baby without so much as a mention in that episode. (The mention came a few episodes later.) And now, over the course of its three seasons, three Beetlejuice mentions that actually resulted in an appearance by the B-Man himself that you probably missed. Watch the window behind Annie (Alison Brie) after she makes the third mention after a quick mention of Inspector Spacetime.
What are we thankful for? Things like this. Thank you, Dan Harmon and everyone involved with Community!
