Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

This episode was crap. Troy an Abed can't be TOP GUN pilots. Top Gun was for the US Navy, and the US Navy doesn't fly F-15s. To worsen matters, they have patches featuring the F-4 (which isn't flown in the US anymore) plus the AC-130 gunship and F-22 (which, again, are USAF planes and wouldn't be flown by the Navy). Utter and complete garbage.

Aside from that though, this was an awesome episode, and while it strangely retreaded the "anthology" format they JUST did last week, it still works out just fine. All the various stories just illustrated that they're all slightly nuts in their own way, and that it's working when they're together. It's great looking into their various characters and learning a bit more from them. The Zombie episode was wild, but this was very valuable in its own way.

Also, Abed and Troy were dressed as Inspector Spacetime and his companion copper. And they didn't even mention it in the context of the show! Now THAT's wild.

They were too awesome to be accurate. Accuracy is for unawesome people, and Troy and Abed are clearly awesome.

I thought this was a great episode, I particularly loved Abed and Pierce's stories. It wasn't as good as Remedial Chaos Theory, but it was close.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I enjoyed the stories, it just wasn't that funny to me. My favourite was Annie's story because it was pretty much a projection like Sci stated earlier. Troy and Abed's story was awesome and Pierce's was hilariously degenerate which was the point of it. I did like Jeff's stoy that included Chang...Chang is awesome in low doses. I really can't wait until John Oliver comes back as Duncan this season. They really need to do an Inspector Spacetime spoof with him as the Inspector.

^ Yeah that was the point of Annie's story though it was really a metaphor (right term?) for how she sees the three of them. This was an okay episode. No where near the awesomeness of last season's zombie episode. I suppose one could look at this episode as a character study episode. I'm not too sure what we'll see come out of this. This has been a weird season so far and I'm not sure why I feel that way. Allison Brie was smoking hot in this episode...and I'm getting of Brita's antics.
I think I actually preferred this one to the zombie episode. While it was a good parody, it just wasn't as funny as this episode was.
Agreed. Really, the only problem I have with "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps" is that we literally saw the same basic format two weeks ago in "Remedial Chaos Theory:" A single framing story to set it up, and six or seven 2- to 3-minute vignettes, a short epilogue, and a credits sequence that calls back to one of the vignettes.

I like this new format -- it was something we'd never seen before two weeks ago. But I think they should have waited a long while before using it again.
I think part of the problem was that 304 and 303 got switched, so we should have seen "Competitive Ecology" in between this episode and RCT. Still, I do kind of a agree that more of a gap would have been nice.

God, how did I not get that? And how did I not get until now that the Inspector and the Constable were designed with Abed and Troy in mind?

It was told by Troy and as the show likes to beat us over the head with: Troy is stupid.

Awesome episode tonight...and Troy and Abed playing Inspector Spacetime at the end...classic. John Goodman was excellent again as the Vice Dean and Pierce's dad was okay. Also Gillian Jacobs was the hottest she's been so far in this season.

Okay, so that I won't look like a complete idiot if this ever comes up with the gay people in my theatre group, what WERE the wipes being used for? The ad thing said it was about concealing their penises whilst in drag? How would this sort of thing be done?

Aside from this confusion, great episode. I like how they seem to be getting at least Britta and Troy to find some direction in life as psychologist and plumber, the latter storyline of which will surely be continued. Also setting up the issues Jeff has with his dad, which was the central part of one of Pierce's schemes last year. Given the history of the show, I know we'll have some great payoffs in store especially through the fourth year when they're supposed to be finishing off their degrees (or Jeff at least).

And, Troy and Abed deserve to be in a full-length Inspector Spacetime episode. Perhaps as the latter's hallucination for Christmas.

As a gay man I figured it was to wipe off drag queen's makeup. The whole penis thing is just weird.
