Thursday TV Picks: ‘Community’ on NBC
TV Picks for Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013, include “Community” on NBC, “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS and “Scandal” on ABC.
Tonight in Prime Time
“I remember when the show was about a community college.” A character made this statement in last week’s episode, and he may be echoing the feeling of many of this show’s viewers. The fourth season of this comedy about a community college study group is back, and it feels just a little ... off. The cast (Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Jim Rash) is still quite funny, but you can really feel the absence of creator/original showrunner Dan Harmon. 8 p.m. Thursday on NBC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
