If Chuck got at least four seasons, damn it, then so should Community!

And I like Chuck. Well, I checked out midway through Season Four. But I liked most of it before then!

I didn't really get that from the Regionals bit. That just felt like another Glee riff.
The badly sung "See you after Reee-heee-gion-eeeels!" over the last shot of the cast seemed to imply that heavily if you ask me.

I wasn't a fan of the episode because I don't like musicals, so if a show does a musical episode then it has to have at least one amazing song to win me over. Sadly, there was nothing in this episode even close to Guy Love.

I really don't mind musical numbers, its just this episode seemed so vapid and paint-by-numbers compared to any episode beforehand that put me off.

On Glee they constantly talk about preparing for and competing in the Regionals. I think that's all the subtext there was to it.

I thought this was a pretty subpar episode. The only bit that got a laugh for me was the Dean, Chang, Magnitude, Leonard, and Starburns ornaments singing at the end, and that wasn't even that great.

I was impressed by it a great deal...maybe it was because it was a Christmas episode and I'm a sucker for Christmas episodes?

I absolutely loved Troy and Abed's rap, myself.

And I was thoroughly entertained. I like that they dialed up the cheesiness a bit to make it work as a Glee parody.

If you were on the fence if that was Danny Pudi... Didn't the second Community cameo appearance tip you off?

reminds me of the days all the Indians on Gunsmoke were just honkeys slapped up in shoe Polish.
