But the other episodes just felt more grounded and less out there. Plus the other episodes I might have just liked more. At least at the end of the paint ball episodes I still felt like it took place in a college in somewhat a real world.

The end of the zombie episode, everyone went home and didn't know the government almost killed tem. The end of this episode has barbwire, and these fancy old school sci-fi clothing that came out of no where. Just was too much and not funny enough.

Maybe I'll enjoy it more in rewatches.

5 beans was too few beans and too easy to manipulate.

I'm with you on this one (is that a first? I dunno...). Once they showed up in the futuristic clothing and the episode lost all ties to reality I pretty much tuned out. Which is a first for me with Community.

Did we watch a different episode?

Because the end of this one had everything going back to normal. The Dean even announced on the intercom that everyone should probably just forget the last few days because of how embarrassing it was. Starburns even explains that his costume was rented...

As for the barbed wire, what's so weird there (for this show)? The painball episodes had the entire campus turned into a post-apocalyptic environment...

But they actually took the time to mention that cleaning up the first paint ball episode lead to near bankruptcy of the school.

I too feel the show went a little off the rails with this episode. I did love the Dean hanging a lantern on it at the end though!

Too bad JirinPanthosa beat me to the joke, or I'd rate your post 1 MeowMeowBeenz.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Good episode. I'm glad they brought it back to something grounded this week. Also good to see Abed's girlfriend story get developed, and also see something more of Annie's history. We haven't heard much about her family and now we're seeing just how bad her relationship with them is and how much hurt there is.

The last scene might be the best thing I've seen on television all year.

The one criticism I have of the episode is I think both the A and B plots should have been dedicated full episode A plots.

I agree. I have nothing to add.

Was anyone else hoping that the black market textbook guy would be Gilbert?

That would have been incredible. It wouldn't surprise me if that was the writers intent but Giancarlo Esposito just wasn't available.

I agree that both plots could have been the A plots for their own full episodes. But, it was fairly brilliant how one plotline was a spoof of a Vince Gilligan show, while the other plotline actually had Vince Gilligan in it.

The Dean's rap and then breakdown at the end was hilarious. I liked the use of the eery music from --I believe-- Sneakers throughout the textbook crime plot, which itself seemed to borrow heavily from A Simple Plan and films of that type. Vince Gilligan's part befit the crime theme and was great, especially the end scene with Gina Gershon. I remember playing those stupid VCR games back in the late-80s/early-90s. It was cool that they had songwriter/actor (including on Voyager and B5) Paul Williams as the textbook dealer. He was most recently seen with Daft Punk (who he wrote songs for) at the Grammy's. Abed's cliche rain-soaked movie apology was adorable, as is his girlfriend from 21 Jump Street. It's nice to see them still acknowledge the void Troy's departure has left both in-show and out.
