New Season 4 sneak peek
We know we say this every five minutes (well, at least according to our desk neighbors here at Hulu HQ), but the next season of Community can’t come quickly enough. The Hunger Games at Greendale? That’s going to be awesome! Maybe we can have Hunger Games here and we can challenge certain desk neighbors who think we talk too much about Community! (You know what, that’s just holiday stress talking. Let’s just watch the Biblioteca rap and calm down.)
Was this anyone else’s first thought or
There is no magical change that happens on a person’s 21st birthday that makes them suddenly able to handle alcohol. There’s no fundamental difference between a person on the day before their 21st birthday and on the day after.
Now, I know Josh Hutcherson’s 19, that example was just to enforce the point that the strictly-enforced legal distinction between legal drinking and underage drinking is pretty arbitrary, and not based in any kind of science or psychology. An underage person isn’t always being irresponsible by drinking, just as someone over 21 isn’t always doing it responsibly.
In fact, you know who’s generally the least capable of drinking responsibly upon turning 21? The people who never had a drink until they were of legal age. Imagine a police officer who never picked up a gun until it came time to actually use one in the field. He’s going to be a poor shot, he won’t know how to handle one, and he’s likely going to shoot someone other than the person he intended to shoot.
I’m not saying you should go out partying underage every night, that would be stupid and irresponsible of me. Unless Josh is really bad at holding his liquor, chastising a 19-year-old, someone who is legally capable of purchasing cigarettes and pornography, serving in the military, sitting on a jury, and voting, for imbibing alcohol just seems kind of silly.
You should not judge Josh Hutcherson for drinking underage, because in reality, the only thing he’s necessarily done wrong is getting caught. It was a rookie mistake, as an up-and-coming a-lister, to attempt use of a fake ID, but if he hadn’t gotten caught and I found out he drank, I would think absolutely no less of him.
Oh, and unless he’s in jail for filming (unlikely he’ll do much time if any, since he’s a 19-year-old, incredibly rich white guy), this won’t affect his acting, not one bit.

[ 43rd Annual Games ]
Muggy. Hot. Dark. The arena was crawling with animals. It was nothing compared to home. Nothing compared to District 10, the boy thought. He had been through so much already. Wading through swift rivers filled with sharped-tooth fish, stalked by a jaguar, running from tributes. He was ready for it to end already.
That’s why when it came down to him and the final career girl he knew just what to do with her. He lead her to the quick sand and she fell for the trap. She was stuck and he ran as far as he could. He screams were heard into the night until finally the cannon boomed. He was a victor now, and the girl was dead. So why could he still hear her screams?
Sweet Tooth looks like an evil Caesar Flickerman
“Only I keep wishing I could think of a way to…to show the Capitol they don’t own me. That I’m more than just a piece in their Games,”
