I'm excited. Though I'm probably just going to avoid this topic and enjoy the show. Don't feel like hearing about how the show was only good in season 1

At 1:05 it zooms in on the calk board where Magnitude is writing and it has "#watchcommunitylive" and "r/community"

Telling people to discuss on Twitter and Reddit. Awesome

By my understanding of the franchise, the Hunger Games don't feature anything reminiscent of an obstacle course or series of trials (it's just the one), so I doubt we'll be missing anything in the way of references. It actually speaks kind of poorly on them, IMO, for them to claim to be doing a parody/tribute and then have that parody/tribute have nothing in common with the source material except for the name. It makes it seem like the show is just trying to parody for parody's sake rather than parodying when appropriate.

Well, to be fair, we won't actually know for sure how much it has in common with the source material until the actual episode airs. But judging by the trailer, I agree with your observation that it appears to just be an Olympic-esque series of trials and The Hunger Games reference is for parody's sake.

This is true, and I'm trying to remain open-minded/optimistic, but the more preview trailers we get, the harder that becomes. :P

It's a good thing if it doesn't actually have anything in common with The Hunger Games besides the name. Though I really wish they weren't using the name either. Also what a disappointing trailer... Compared to the Community Returns one we got last year this one doesn't get me hyped at all. The trailer last year was just absolutely amazing though definitely one of the best trailers I've ever seen.
