I just rewatched it... I think at the end, Abed and Troy are watching Inspector SpaceTime....

Oh my god.

Inspector spacetime isn't a TV Show, it's a fake piece of fiction being used to monitor the crosstime Abebs, and eventually it will be Inspector Spacetime who takes the good Abeb to consol his evil counterpart, or Inspector Space-Time's mortal enemy is going to ally himself with the evil Abeb to destroy the good Abeb.

This all happens during a pandimensional game of paintball of course.

Um, his name's Abed, Guy.

^ I don't think it was an intentional error but Guy's theory has some merit. Anything seems possible in the "Community" universe.

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".
In another universe, that M'rk probably wasn't bothered by whatever it was that kept you from "loving" this episode.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Alternate realities are not science fiction.

Travelling to alternate realities or observing alternate realities so is science fiction.

Besides at the end when Abeb thought he heard his evil duplicte, unless he was a mutant, that was more likely some magical based ability which is fantasy not science fiction.

Besides mutancy is Darwinism which is real, so if that wasn't a fantasy story, apart from the made up bits that episode of community could have been nonfiction.

Sure they are! They aren't science fact. And fantasy implies that alternate realities are magic based, which isn't true, otherwise there wouldn't be scientific work being done right now to explain it (particle-based theories, mostly). That's not fantasy, that makes it science fiction.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Apparently I read somewhere that Pierce's proclamation that he nailed Eartha Kitt in an Airplane bathroom in the prior episode was in fact due to that being filmed and intended to air after Chaos Theory, but was in fact aired beforehand.

However, have you noticed how the episode starts with Annie and Britta saying "303. You sure its not 304? No I wrote down 303. Twice."

Notice how this was Episode 304? Apparently supposed to be 303 but was in fact 304 contrary to what Annie believed?

There is some serious shit here folks.

We're through the looking glass people.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

^ Yeah NBC swapped the order of the episodes at the last minute. This happened a lot in the first season, so when I rewatch those episodes I do so in production order with the exception of the three extra episodes at the end of the season. Makes a lot more sense that way.

I can see this show deliberately airing episodes out of order, then telling the hardcore fans to go back and rewatch them in the correct order, AS PART of the show. Community has those kind of balls.
