It’s over a month until the fourth season of Community premieres on NBC but EW has a sneak peek of the season opener and its tribute (insert dodgy pun noise here) to The Hunger Games. Here’s what we can expect to see on the 19th October, although–it being Community–it’s never quite what you expect:
When the Greendale student records seem to be lost, the Dean (Jim Rash) stages a Hunger Games-like competition to determine enrollment in a class called The History of Ice Cream. (Which raises the question: There’s actually a class at Greendale called The History of Ice Cream? “Ice cream is something that people eat every day and they probably don’t know its origin story,” deadpans McHale. “F— you and your elitist I-don’t-need-to-know-about-my-frozen-treats-and-where-they-came-from attitude.”)
The article includes two pictures from the episode, one of which features unicorns. Sort of.
Lastly, it’s time to put your detective hats on and/or jump into your time machine:
Jeff not only competes in the games, he even performs an elaborate tango with Dean Pelton, who dons multiple dresses in the episode. “He will repulse and arouse you all at once,” notes McHale. “Mostly repulse.” McHale also offers this tease about another part of the premiere: “It is an homage to something that kids in the late ’80s and early ’90s watched on Saturday mornings.”
Um, SMTV:Live? Live & Kicking? I’m too British for this guessing game. What do you reckon it will be? Let us know in comments.
