'Community' Season 4 Premiere: Greendale Stages 'Hunger Games'-Style Battle (Video)
Welcome to The Hunger Games, Community style.
In a sneak peek for the NBC comedy's season four premiere on Feb. 7, Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) -- dressed as himself, always a bad sign -- settles a score after ice cream passes are forged at Greendale by throwing on a Hunger Games-esque battle: The Hunger Deans.
Dressed in his best Katniss Everdeen "girl on fire" gown, the dean tasks the students to go through 35 tests, the winner of each round receiving a distinctly-marked red ball to be allowed ice cream.
How distinct is the mark? The scene below reveals just how far the dean goes.
Community airs 8 p.m. Thursdays beginning next month on NBC.
