Chevy Chase justifies Massawyrm's Lifestyle!

Hey folks, Harry here...  

I've given Massawyrm a great deal of strife for a great many years about still playing D&D, mainly because I stopped playing once I entered the second half of 7th Grade.   It's a very rare thing for me to be able to point at... childish behavior in another with a healthy and fun amount of razz...   But with Massawyrm, Dungeons & Dragons affords me that simple life pleasure.  That said, my other D&D playing friends, I never tease, simply because they don't wear it quite like the crucifix that Massawyrm makes it out to be.

SO...  when I got a press release from COMMUNITY tonight with this picture:

Well - officially - that's cool.   Look at that glorious image Children of the 80's.   Relish it.   It is, as cool as it gets.   I love it.   Now, I know this is usually Herc's territory, but I figured I'd post this... because, well, I get to razz Massawyrm a bit, and how could I pass that up?

Now - tomorrow night's episode of COMMUNITY is totally going to revolve around D&D.   Here's the PR info:



In this upcoming episode of COMMUNITY titled “Advanced Dungeons & Dragons,” (Airing Thursday, February 3 at 8:00p.m. PM/ET on NBC) the study group takes a journey into the dark world of Dungeons & Dragons with Abed at the helm. When Jeff (Joel McHale) becomes concerned about “Fat Neil,” (Guest Star Charley Koontz, “Gigantic”) a fellow Greendale student who’s a bit of a loner, the gang invites him to play a game of Dungeons & Dragons to boost his spirits and his confidence. But when Pierce (Chevy Chase) discovers he’s been excluded, he forces his way into the game and takes charge, disrupting their delicate plan. 


The gang jumps whole-heartedly into their Dungeons & Dragons roles -- Señor Chang becomes “C-Bone the Magnificent,” Shirley is “Brutalitops the Barbarian,” Troy is “Bing Bong the Archer,” Annie is “Hector the Well-Endowed,” Britta is “Lavernica” and Jeff is “Marrrrr.”

    by Davidhessstation

    I'd rather see Fletch 3 or another vacation film that's R rated.

    You think that's funny Harry?

    by Massawyrm 1

    Just wait until the fodder I give you next week. Shame is for the weak. And for fucks sake, people. Watch Community. Funniest thing on TV right now.

    See Herc, your fellow editors like this show- why don't you?

    Is community funny?

    by antonphd

    I watched the pilot and I liked Joel and Chevy both too much to watch them in a boring comedy. But maybe it has gotten better? I didn't like Parks and Recreation at first either and now I love it. That goofy big guy who broke boths him arms in the pit and now shines shoes might just be the spiritual successor to Chris Farley. Alright, I'll give community another shot.

  • Feb. 2, 2011, 1:36 a.m. CST

    Oh, yeah and FUCK YOU Harry

    by antonphd

    for saying that there's a chance that the Joseph could be Dick Grayson in the next batman movie. now i'm remembering Batman and Robin and how the kid from that Al Pacino movie flushed him acting career down the toilet for a decade to wear a rubber cod piece.

    LoL hero tomorrow

    by nobodylistenstodestro

    That was probably the worst movie ive ever seen. Id rather watch my parents have sex for an hour and a half than watch another 10 minutes of that dog shit.

    by TheComedian77

    It's too schmaltzy for me. To each his own.

  • Feb. 2, 2011, 10:01 a.m. CST


    by Captain Hollywood

    The general consensus is that the show went from good to great starting with episode 7 (Halloween episode)- although I think starting with episode 5 may be better choice to build up to that. The pilot gives no real understanding as for what the show had evolved into, so you can't judge off that.

  • Feb. 2, 2011, 11:01 a.m. CST

    believe the hype

    by mrgreentheplant

    tied with Parks for best show on TV. 30 rock and the office still turn in solid episodes most of the time as well. thursday night comedies are the reason i am no longer strapping rockets to the side of 30 rockefeller plaza and launching nbc into the sun

  • Feb. 2, 2011, 11:02 a.m. CST

    they also have:

    Community gave us all a great gift: A funny Chevy Chase

    by SifoDyasJr

    We haven't seen that since way back to Christmas Vacation. I wonder if Abed's D&D character is a reference to The Lonely Island's Bing Bong Brothers?

    Community panders to geeks to make up for the lack of laughs..

    by MST3KPIMP

    don't you feel just a little dopey to fall for such patronizing crap like Community? I mean they occasionally earn a chuckle but it's attempts to wow you with it's geek culture references is rather bush-league. I'm surprised your not immune to such one-dimensional gimmicks at this point. "Oh wow he's got Spider-man pajamas"... "look! they did an entire Rankin/Bass claymation episode!" C'mon you guys!

    Speaking of Chevy...

    No Braindrain

    by theGoldbergV

    Your gift for getting things completely backwards continues unabated. and mst3kpimp, the spiderman pyjamas was a reference to Donald Glover's campaign to get the title role in the reboot, not just a "ooh look, geek reference" moment like they do on BBT

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 8:20 a.m. CST

    Love Chevy

    by edwardpenishands

    Glad hes funny again. Hulu has a clip of him and Joel going at each other and it’s funny as hell. I will say not every episode is paintball but they have the best ensemble cast on TV which makes every episode infinitely watchable.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 9:53 a.m. CST

    Not one but TWO Chase posts this week!

    by Dave Shaw

    Fletch3: Well, hope it doesn't happen without him. As for Community, it IS the most clever sitcom on air right now.

    Chaing as a Dark elf FTW

    The sound cues are wonderous in the D & D episode of Community. Wonderous.

    The "geek jokes" in TBBT are ALWAYS

    by buffywrestling

    thrown in at the last second. That's why they are punchlines. Lazy punchlines most times. I wouldn't consider what Community does to be lazy at all. I don't think it's perfect but it is very ambitious.

    best comedy on TV right now, but i thought it was kind of a weaker episode. Maybe it's something D and D fans would have liked, but i just didn't dig. Only real laugh i got was when Annie and Abed had D and D sex. Oh and I'm reaaaaaaally starting to hate pierce. They need to change his character around a little bit/ He was better as the old guy who just said/did terrible things cuz old people don't really know better. lately he's just been a dick.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 7:43 p.m. CST

    and regardin BBT

    by Timahh

    they aren't laughing with nerds, their laughing at us. It's a show about how the weird things nerds say and do, i can't get over the people who think it's actually a show for geeks. it's a show for the blond girl. She is confused and put off by the nerdy things/and that is the way the audience reacts. It gets good numbers cuz its CBS and their viewers are loyal and by and large retarded.

    Community was good

    by Redhead_Redemption

    although I did find it wiered that an entire episode was based around a character we'd seen maybe once before. Like they were trying real hard for a backdoor pilot to the fat Neil show But it still had lots of laughs and chaing dressed as the dark elf literally made me pee my pants Couples was gay Office was good and seems to be heading towarads steve carells end (which is only 5 or 6 episodes away) Parks was awesome, will forte should become a regular cast member 30 rock was hillarious, a really solid episode Outsouced was very very boring and them being ont hat train made me taste BO
