Best. Episode. Ever.

Ok, maybe not THE best, but it's certainly up there, if only for Abed's obsession with "The Cape" XD

"THAT SHOW WILL BE GONE IN THREE WEEKS!"

"..AND THEN THEY'LL MAKE A MOVIE!"
In the cateria I thought it went...

The show will last three episodes. (Or something like that)

And then Abed went....

Six seasons and a movie!

Yup, just watched it again. Your right.

Awesome episode. And yeah, the Cape stuff was hilarious (especially the scene at the end when they were ALL wearing the stupid black cape. lol)

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Okay. Best episode of the season and probably in my top three all time. They totally made fun of themselves and their structure in this episode! It was a clip show but they did it in such a unique way (showing "meta" clips!). The Annie of Everything!!! (I think that was her quote). So...FINALLY some resolution on Britta and Jeff or was that just another swerve? Chang wasn't annoying this episode. I understand why timothy asked if this was the season finale now. It could pretty much serve as one.

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.

^ Okay you just came out of nowhere. Welcome to the thread! I guess my point with Jeff/Britta is they chose to out of the blue reveal they've been messing around with each other and once again chosen not to deal with anything.

The interviews indicate that they just couldn't stand the idea of having a traditional "will they/won't they" plotline. I think the writers are bored by traditional romance.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

^From what I've read, Dan Harmon is frustrated by the fact that people keep focusing on the "ships" and has basically said he's willing to fuck with them for the hell of it. I think if people are hoping for a nice, linear romance on this show, they're likely to be disappointed.

The episode itself was just brilliant on so many levels. Loved the subversion of the flashback meme as basically an excuse to toss out a billion little quick-hit gags, but what really made it work is that they had obviously sown some of the seeds very early on which paid off here (for instance, there was a quick beat in the bottle episode where Britta made some dig about Jeff's new shorts, to which Abed reacted very suspiciously) and the bits that they obviously filmed during much earlier episodes like xmas and Halloween.

Specific bits that stood out for me were the beat with Britta and Annie when Britta just grabbed Annie's chapstick and tossed it on the ground - so simple and so quick, yet so rooted in the characters; the Habitat scene; the argument montage; the Jeff speech montage; diorama Chang looking forlornly through the window; the glimpse of what was really happening during the xmas episode; and the dig at shipper vids.

This one is up there with the paintball and chicken finger episodes in the pantheon of the truly awesome. I hope they can keep this momentum up through the end.

Thanks! I just discovered Community last week and devoured all of Season Two and key episodes of Season One.

I guess my point with Jeff/Britta is they chose to out of the blue reveal they've been messing around with each other and once again chosen not to deal with anything.
Well, to me, the Jeff/Britta relationship seems resolved on an emotional level: They're friends, and they're physically attracted to one-another, but they don't have deeper feelings. The revelation that they're doing the friends-with-benefits thing came out of the blue, but I really don't think there's anything else to deal with.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Like I stated earlier in thread I wouldn't be surprised if Harmon and the writers are purposely fucking with the fans minds. I just hope they know that there could come a time when that might backfire on them I'm not a shipper by any means but I do like the concept of Annie/Jeff.

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.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Jeff/Annie is why I became a fan of the show too. It's not a mistake in the least. It COULD become a mistake if they choose to continue dick us around and not pay it off.

Not if Brie didn't have a problem with it.

To each his own, of course.

However, to me, Jeff vs Annie based on the concept of her being an idealist and he being a complete cynic combined with a need for him to be her surrogate big brother is kind of fun... while Jeff and Annie considering a romance when she is supposedly only about 18 or 19 years old is, at best, just another variation on the cliched "Sam and Diane/Dave and Maddie/House and Cuddy" bit and, at worst, kind of creepy.
