So...FINALLY some resolution on Britta and Jeff or was that just another swerve?
What's there to resolve? Britta and Jeff had a thing for one-another last season, they realized they don't have feelings for each other after Britta humiliated herself in the season one finale, and they've been occasionally fucking each other when the mood struck.

It's Jeff/Annie that's full of unresolved issues and emotions, not Jeff/Britta.
Yeah. If the show has made any missteps it was the Jeff/Annie thing (and turning Chang from a bullying Spanish teacher to a wimpy loser).

Jeff/Britta being friends with benefits actually kind of works and is more or less consistent with their characters. Jeff and Annie seemed forced and probably written because McHale (quite sensibly) demanded a chance to lock lips with Allison Brie.
Please. Jeff/Annie is the best thing about the show (and the reason I started watching).

And I ran across an interview with Harmon where he says they started the Jeff/Annie thing after seeing the chemistry that McHale and Brie have. I think it's safe to say that neither actor gets to make a "demand" about making out with other actors -- that'd border on sexual harassment.
