Community 201  
So good to see Community hasn't lost its pizzazz. That was a rocking way to start Season 2. Jeff's sexual/romantic history with Annie and Britta becomes public knowledge AND he gets punched in the face? Nice! Of course, Abed taking charge of the romantic 'adventure' could only bring win. :) However, I was very there for Britta and Jeff's competitive dating. Ok, it couldn't have been sustained any longer without getting old, but it was fun while it lasted. This episode also gets props from me for the inventive bedroom montage at the beginning. My favourite details included Troy's Spiderman t-shirt, Pierce's youthful portrait and Shirley's cross over her bed. Annie's pink bedroom made me nauseous. Which was fitting given that she spent the rest of the episode nauseous herself... (ugh, so glad Jeff blew her off! I liked their chemistry last season but it entirely vanished once she became limpet-y). I'm there for Chang joining the group as well. Especially since they've obviously understood that they still need a comedic lecturer. This seems a wise move to keep the material fresh. Speaking of which, the Twitter jokes were nicely handled. The delayed laugh was my favourite, since it commented not only on Twitter culture but also on Pierce being funny only when he's framed as funny (and horrifying the rest of the time). Fave line? "Since you have clearly failed to grasp the central insipid metaphor of those Twilight books you devour" OF COURSE Shirley reads Twilight. :D I imagine her actually breaking out the tissue box for the most sentimental parts. And owning Edward merchandise. Abed still PWNs the whole show. Can't wait for more!

(now with fixed html!)

My favourite details included Troy's Spiderman t-shirt,

That's an inside-joke with the actor, do you know about it? Donald Glover said he would love to play Spider Man and posted a photoshopped picture of himself as spidey and people latched onto it on Twitter (and Facebook?) and it became such a thing that even Stan Lee even weighed in.


and Chaaaaaaang omg Chang. I can't wait to see his dastardly plot unfold.

and the betty white guest spot! with the super weapon!!

ABED IS AWESOMEST, hiring an irish singer, lollol.

love this show, love.

must make abed icon.

OMG-- did your episode DL have the ending with Abed, Troy and Betty White in the study lounge, rapping? OMG LOVE.

OMG, I did NOT know this! That is brilliant! It also makes way more sense of the Robin conversation.

Abed icon very necessary! And yes, I am SO THERE for Chang's dastardly plots! His Smeagol scene was classic.

I did have the Betty White rap, oh yes! :) No Community ep is complete without the Abed/Troy credits sequence. ;)

it's a little sad I'm not on Dreamwidth because I can't use my Abed&Troy icon!
hahaha YES, the Twilight line was definitely the best!

My only complaint was that I WANT MORE ABED. And I sort of agreed with him when he said he wanted another paintball episode because this one was boring - I mean, I enjoyed it a lot, but I'm looking forward to more epic things like paintball or the chicken fingers mafia one. :D

Oh I failed to cross-post! Sorry! I will get better at it!

Yeah, always WANT MORE ABED. And more paintball! And totally glad to have had those lines scripted because it tells me that the writers know we love that shit. :) I felt the season 1 finale shenanigans needed addressed first though and was therefore happy that they got that all knocked over in one ep. :D

I'm still giggling at the episode... and at the fact that an Australian had to remind me that it's airing again in the US.

Hah, I'd forgotten the Twilight reference! Genius!

Ah! I nearly missed it myself! But yay, Community love round the world! :D
