^ How often do you watch? There are references like that from all kinds of different pop culture oriented shows and movies practically every episode.

Watch the background behind Annie towards the end of the video.
I wonder how much stuff like that I'm missing when I watch. Lol
After the episode last season where Abed participated in the background pregnancy story, I assume there are alwats hidden jokes that I missed. Community - a show that really does force you to go back and rewatch the episodes.

I get that, but it still makes you wonder. And I'm not gonna go online to check every episode.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

It doesn't make me wonder since I've watched every episode...and if you're not a fan then yeah you're not gonna watch every episode. I was answering your question.

Yeah, I'm a fan and I've seen every episode, but I usually miss background stuff like that and have to be told about it after the fact.

Yeah, I don't see anyone could possibly pick up on every joke like this unless they have some sort of advanced perceptual awareness that most people don't have. I didn't even notice the Abed/baby gag until I read n interview with Dan Harmon where he pointed it out. I had no idea what Abed was talking about in the episode where Shirley's baby was born.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

Oh I have no doubt people miss jokes...perhaps it is the way IndyJones phrased the question or how I misunderstood it then. There is stuff that I miss too...or don't get. I was thinking he missed it due to not watching the series on a regular basis.

In the context of the post he was replying to, IndyJones was clearly referring to events that occur only in the background, rather than jokes as part of the forefront plot(s) of each episode.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I often miss those background jokes, but I love it when someone points them out to me later on. No need to fret over it when I'm watching, but an added bonus when I hear about them later on.

Not sure how you can miss sight gags like that. They're not THAT subtle.

I was looking at Annie and utterly ignoring the background.

It also didn't help that I missed the first season and didn't think to mark each time they said "Beetlejuice."
