Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

While most of the episode may not have actually happened....this was probably my favourite episode of Community ever. Absolute brilliance. A great concept, and the humour and heart grew organically from the characters.

Also interesting to see that the only timeline that didn't end in disaster was the one without Jeff there. Last season Pierce was the outside, this year definitely seems to be Jeff. I'm hoping they'll keep building on that theme throughout the year.

Only thing that bugged me a bit was never learning why Annie had a gun in her bag.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I'm guessing Annie finally bought a gun for protection in her shady neighbourhood. I enjoyed the episode but it felt weird as it explored all the timelines. The best part though for me was the end when we see the "mirror universe" counterparts. I would not be shocked if this was revisited at some point in the season. In fact I would guess that most of what we saw were plot seeds just told in alternate realities.

Abeb already broke through into a mirror universe in the Model UN episode.

It's in his character.

He can do it.

Agreed on all counts! And not just the most brilliant Community episode, either. This trumped just about anything I've seen anywhere.

Of course, being a asthmatic (in remission), it's dangerous for me to laugh too hard. After Troy's line (sans-larynx), "Clearly you don't understand anything about defeating Trolls", paramedics were standing by.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I don't know if I would call it my favourite episode of the series but it was right up there. I still think both paintball episodes trumped this...something about this episode bugged me and I'm not sure what.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

This episode played with a high concept you don't often see - heck, I think the last time a sitcom even tried it was Frasier, no? Something about red or green lights at a traffic stop?

Also, at the very end, if you listen carefully you can hear that Troy and Abed are watching "Inspector Spacetime". It's here to stay, people.

This was great. Erases the last few, which I didn't think were all that great. AND, it is interesting, things go best without Jeff telling people how to behave....

And I do hope the mirror universe returns...

^Yes, it might be fun to revisit the alternate timelines down the road.

Great stuff this week, we were laughing all the way through.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

The Troy timeline was amazing, possibly my favourite moment in the whole show. They set up all the elements of it in the previous timelines and then set them all off one-by-one over the course of one chaotic minute. Absolute brilliance.

I enjoyed it well enough, definitely better than the past few episodes, but nowhere near the fun of the paint-ball episodes. And the one with the gigantic fort. Loved that episode.

I think for me, this episode had too much of a... Nerd Pretentiousness? lol, it's tough to explain, but it felt too eager to show its obvious sci-fi trappings and influences while at the same time pretending to be brilliant and unique? I'm definitely reading too much into it. But there was something there preventing me from boosting from "enjoying it" to "loving it".

Okay, agreed, THAT part had me howling. The Troy timeline was so fantastic and well done, very very funny.

I think Troy over-reacting (or in this case, reacting) to situations are my favourite moments, like "you can't disappoint a picture!"

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

It is interesting that the writers have chosen to continue harping on Troy and Annie's insecurities about being the youngest in the group. I believe that in the case of Jeff and Annie this issue is the one single thing that is keeping them from being together. I think Annie wants a serious relationship with Jeff and of course Jeff is probably only interested in just sleeping with her, although he might want a relationship and just can't admit it to himself given his commitment issues. I like the fact that all of their issues and dramas effect the group in some way or another. It is why they work so well as a group.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I loved this episode....but methinks there is something big going on here. Much much bigger than one episode. Why? Because Pierce mentioned having sex with Eartha Kitt in an airplane bathroom once before this season, and it was repeated so often I couldn't help but think it was a tell of something bigger going on.

What with Inspector Spacetime as well, I think Dan Harmon may have REALLY liked the new seasons of Doctor Who...

I wouldn't be surprised if Harmon was weaving a Moffat like arc!
