I really was. It really has become a show that pays homage to pop culture as a whole and does it without damaging the story.

I submit to the board that Abed may be the greatest television character of this decade.

I think it's leapfrogged Parks and Rec with these last few episodes, but it's still behind Modern Family, for me.

Absolutely. And I was worried after last week's that it was going downhill. Not so!

Okay, weird coincidence: last week, I received Animal House through Netflix the day before watching Community's parody. This week, I received The Killer.

I've already got the set on pre-order from Amazon. This is definitely the best new show of the year as far as I'm concerned, and the funniest show on TV for my sensibilities. I think it's funnier than the first year of 30 Rock. Too bad it won't get the awards it deserves.

"Pierce, don't come over here."
"Screw you! I'm comin' over there!"

I loved Abed's explanation about Jeff and Brita's lack of chemistry. :lol:

Best episode was the pool episode (which was written by the goddamn writer's assistant so I give it major props) but this was insane fun for sure.

For such a shitty network otherwise, NBC still owns Thursday night as far as I'm concerned. And yeah, the Arrested Development comparison is apt. My wife still doesn't get it but whatever, I sit through Gray's Anatomy for her (DVRed of course.)

Jeff's die hard moment was brilliant, I caught it right whn he met up with Troy and Abed and took the over short off and then the ending with the dean was brilliant.

My only complaint is how fast most of study group got taken out.

Also the cold ending during the credits was freaking awesome. "maybe we should just text him"

I was luke warm on this show at first, mostly because I have never really liked Chevy Chase (outside of Caddy Shack and Fletch) but I'm totally on board with it now. It's really great and I look forward to this show as much as the rest of NBC's comedy Thursday lineup.

How good is this show? So good that you can overlook how the creator and writers of this show have absolutely no idea what a community college is.

So far this show has featured dorms, glee clubs, swim teams, football teams, and last weeks episode Jeff mentioned that he wanted to try and graduate in three years instead of four years. None of these things are generally things that are available on community college campuses.

And even with this I still love this show. Love it completely in spite of this glaring flaw.

I don't know what it's like in Austin, but the community college I attended for two years had most of these things. And in California (where I assume the show takes place) many comm. colleges are very large. The four year thing was odd, but they have to be able to keep the show going for more than two years, assuming it does well enough.

Really. Wow, I did not know that. None of the community colleges I've ever known about offer any of those things.

Alison Brie shares an especially experimental moment of college experimentation

http://www.nerve.com/features/true-stories/homosexual-schmomosexual


I went to art school. Now art school is not like regular college. Tai chi was a required course, we had a circus class taught by a bearded lady, and clothing was optional everywhere but the cafeteria. Similarly, the students there are of a different grain. They're very deep and introspective, really open to experimentation of any kind, and they have weird haircuts. In my case, the first year there was fraught with exploration. I learned a lot about the inner workings of me. I learned how to become "a clean sheet of paper"; I learned how to breathe through my coccyx; I learned that pretty much anyone would have sex with me. This at first I thought was because I was "so talented" or "so creative." Later, of course, I realized I was just easy. So I capitalized on it.

What I love about Community is that it started off strong, and hasn't let up. Seems like it takes most shows at least half to a full season to really find their footing, but Community was on fire from the get go.

i'm curious how much of the show has come out as planned or if this was an entirely different show until they realized how well the cast meshed and how broad their talents were.

Most shows grow organically that way. I think the most obvious swerve in direction is Jeff's character and his relationship with Brita. Based on the pilot, he was going to be the conniving cynic, always trying to get in her pants, who would end up dragged kicking and screaming into doing the right thing.

But they had way more fun making Brita just as flawed and as clearly seen in this episode, Jeff spent most of the season pretending he wasn't even into Brita.

As Abed put it, they ended up going for more of a "Hawkeye" vibe to his character.

Community and Modern Family are even for me. Both are unbelievably hilarious.

The cinematography was better than most of the genre it parodied. And the script was brilliant on every level. Amazing.

And as great as this episode was, I'd still rank it slightly below "Contemporary American Poultry," the episode that parodied GOODFELLAS.
