Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I was flipping through my iTunes library yesterday (compiled over many years by absorbing the libraries of various friends) and realized that I had exactly two Sophie B. Hawkins songs. Both the ones mentioned on the show. Prior to last week, I had no idea who she was, but I was vaguely familiar with the "Damn I Wish I was your Lover" song. Clearly, I don't prefer the other song, whatever it was called.

I see movies about people immersed in music that they know the words to everything and I think "What weirdos".

I know the words to most of the songs I regularly listen(ed) to. Pop on a 90's playlist, and I'll sing along to all of them.

Although, I do have a mind for memorization (not quite eidetic, but excellent recall). Helps when I play pub quiz or bar trivia.

I also regularly sing karaoke.

I thought "Herstory of Dance" was pretty good. On par with some of the lesser episodes from previous seasons. What struck me though, is with this one and last one, they are making Pierce likable. Last week, Jeff actually felt bad for how he treated Pierce and this week, Pierce came to the rescue.
I have been catching up on a few episodes and watched this one last night. I liked "Herstory" too. The Dean's "Donna Reed" in "black and white" make up had me in stitches. I love watching Britta screw up. This was a good episode.

Can someone tell me how Chang is being used so differently this season as opposed to prior seasons? He was always the annoying little prick who popped up at inopportune moments and it looks like they are building to a pretty significant conclusion to the "changnesia" storyline.

But one of the problems with the show this season is that when I watch, always in the back of my mind I'm thinking, 'but this is not a Dan Harmon episode'. It is like knowing a real negative spoiler about EVERY episode. Frankly, I wish I could un-know what I know. In fact, I think we all would enjoy the show much better this season if we didn't know Harmon wasn't there. .

Chang's arc was hinted at in the very last shots of the third season finale. Apparently we haven't heard the last of Central College.

I *did* like this week's episode. Possibly my favorite of the season. If it is, I wish I had high hopes for the final four epsiodes.

Incidentally, this week they didn't really conclusively say what happened to Pierce. Was he not in the "present" scenes because they filmed them after he was booted from the show? He wasn't in the publicity photo of the cast with their puppets either, though arguably he wasn't meant to be shooting that day anyway since he'd gone crazy, or something.. Still, the rest of the cast looked like they were having a great time doing this one, and it was awesome seeing them enjoy it with all this news of drama behind the scenes leaking out all the time.

I think it might have been one of the episodes he will be missing from. He is in the finale, but at least two fo the last few he won't be in.

Yeah, according to Sepinwall, this was the last episode filmed because of the prep work involved and the producers made Chase agree to record the puppet scenes in the studio before they let him quit.

Weird, I just figured they took old lines and stuck them together.

I miss the old endings to the show, Troy and Abed in the Morning, etc.

Now we get lame commercials and behind the scenes footage that isn't funny at all.

Behind the scenes footage is for DVD extras, I don't want them taking over what little time we have with our characters. Bad enough commercial breaks cut down the content to what it is these days.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I agree the History of Dance episode was on par with lesser episodes from other seasons, but the puppet episode was godawful.

It's especially painful for that episode to be bad, because after the Claymation episode, you have to think if they had a puppet episode in the first three seasons they would have nailed it.

I know I'm on a 'South Park reference' kick right now, but I'm going to make another one. In the mini-commentaries on the South Park DVD, the South Park creators often mention how they insist writers make jokes that are references to the story and the characters instead of the traditional sitcom-style jokes that are just one liners that have nothing to do with anything. Season four has been all bout those sitcom-style jokes, one liners that have nothing to do with anything. They toned down all the characters and made the humor more sitcom style, more based on one line quips.

And the musical parts of the puppet episode forgot to make fun of the style they were emulating.

Brie Larson is adorable but... Isn't Agent Robin Vohlers still stalking Abeb, and this seems like a perfect reason to break cover.
