Everyone thinks Community is a weak little show, forever headed to an early grave. But it turns out to be immortal, as I learned at South by Southwest this year.
Unfortunately, as a promotion for Community, the live episode of Harmontown turns out to be terrible. Harmontown is one of those shambolic, off-the-top-of-our-heads type of celebrity-man podcasts where the entire show is about how terrible it is. Harmon is self-effacing, but never self-effacing enough, and his co-hosts can do little but watch as he free-associates for hours at a time. At one point, he freestyles a lengthy rap about (his words) "fucking your mom," and it's not even his worst musical performance of the evening.
