I had prepared for my first trip to PAX the way I must prepare for everything else: through rigorous research, planning, and incessant pestering of my friends. What kind of water bottle should I bring? Collapsible. Pain killers? More than one kind, just in case someone you’re with is allergic to one. Hand sanitizer? Apply liberally to everything. Even that child? Especially that child. Sneakers? Don’t forget the gel insoles. Zinc and vitamin C? Begin a rigorous course three weeks prior and bring some with you just in case.
We love all sorts of stuff here at NA; explosions, robots, loud music, and laughter. I would venture to say that as a group NBC’s Community is our favorite half hour comedy. The cast of Community made their first appearance at last year’s Comic-Con, and were totally hilarious (it was seriously funny guys). When I learned that Community was returning to Comic-Con 2011 I made sure that I was there no matter what. Here is a little video I slapped together of the intro video, followed by some pretty hilarious singing by Gillian Jacobs, Joel McHale, and Donald Glover. I really hope this show stays on the air because it’s seriously the most innovative comedy in recent years. Alison Brie was not in attendance.
