Community

Not sure what's going on in this scene from the season premiere of "Community," but I'm in. (NBC / January 27, 2013)

Every February we celebrate Valentine's Day and Black History Month, but this one is extra special because we welcome NBC's "Community" back to TV after too long a hiatus. It's also when the high-profile Netflix series, "House of Cards," debuts. Back on the regular TV, "The Walking Dead" and "SouthLand" are back. As usual, I may have missed something, so let me know. And check back, I'll update regularly.
