Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Not to mention that it's the second bottle episode they've done this year...three if you count "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas". Pierce I think might be going through something personal that he's not telling the group, based on his recent behavior. Remember in the aforementioned Christmas episode he mentions to Abed that he didn't want to go home. I think something is going to be revealed and dealt with pretty soon.

Yeah, I think Pierce is doing something that will be paid off later this year - they've been doing very good jobs with this over the course of the show. Anyway, what WAS the big deal with Pierce in the wheelchair? It quite suddenly disappeared after they made such a fuss getting him into it, and then just incorporated the chair into, what - one episode afterwards, and a handful of gags? Was there a production reason for it? Did Chevy really break his leg at some point?

He was in the chair for longer than one episode, but it did kind of disappear abruptly. I really do hope they're going somewhere with Pierce this season, because he's been really over the top. Maybe it has something to do with his mother's death.

I loved this one. And I agree with you guys that something has to be in store for Pierce. He's been too much of a dick lately and they're making him too unlikeable for it to be done without a reason.

He actually had it for 5 episodes. He got it in The Aerodynamicss of Gender (episode 7) and his first episode without it was Asian Population Studies (episode 12).

That's a pretty good run on a show.

Yeah, I couldn't remember how many episodes he was in it. A lot of shows would have either skipped it entirely or only left him in the chair for one episode.

I thought Troy was living with Pierce? If something was happening at home would think Troy would know about it.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Not necessarily and by home I meant Pierce's family. Troy lived with Pierce over the summer time but it's not clear yet if they're still living together. Just because he's living at the mansion doesn't mean he knows everything that is going on in Pierce's personal life.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

^ Troy is probably still living with Pierce as he mentions they've gone through a number of DVD remotes in the bottle/pen episode and in the ep after the Christmas break mentions going through Pierce's cupboards during the Christmas break.

True that Troy might not notice, he is pretty oblivious to things at times.

This was my favorite one since the Hallowe'en episode, and maybe even the paintball one.

Yeah, these theme episodes they've done have all been awesome. The zombie one might still be my favorite though.

Andy Dick is actually quite funny when he's tamed and follows a script. Otherwise yeah don't really like him that much. He fits the show's quirkiness. I missed this week's episode

are they trying to kill this show or what it's bad enough that he was on an episode of voyager.
Back in the trampoline episode I didn't even realise the Dragonflyer pilot was meant to be Andy Dick, I actually thought it was just the actor who played the Dean.

Shelly was hardly in the episode, since it was a valentines day episode I thought we might see her husband (or is he her ex-husband? I can't quite remember if she is divorced or separated)
