Puppets! Paintball! Annie's Boobs! And other PaleyFest revelations
I've seen at least a dozen "Community" panels over the years at various Fests and Cons and TCAs and you can guarantee two things:
1) The cast will be funny. It doesn't matter which permutation of talent takes that stage, they'll find a way to play off of each other. So even if Chevy Chase is there making everybody awkward or if you're missing Donald Glover, hilarity will still find a way to ensue.
2) In part because of No. 1, you're safely guaranteed that actionable information will be minimal. There's just too much improv and too many extended bits and too many games of one-upmanship. If you're a fan, that's not a problem. You go. You laugh. You have a great time. If you're a reporter looking to cull a blog post of 20 things one might have learned from a particular panel, it can be a real challenge. Either there's no straight-faced information, or straight-faced information is given, but the next punchline comes so quick at hand that you can't get follow-up details.
So this list of 20 Things We Learned From The "Community" PaleyFest Panel from Tuesday (March 5) night includes several things that probably aren't real and several very quick hints at things that went elsewhere. Previous 20 Things... write-ups from Comic-Con have been vast seas of quotations, but I'm not sure if this one will be.
Click through for the 20... But if you're spoiler averse, you probably don't want to bother.
