^ He's passed that with three seasons of "Community" and seemingly very pleased to be apart of the show as well. Perhaps more details will unfold. This has been a pretty rocky season hasn't it in terms of mediocre episodes for the most part, the controversial long hiatus, the Inspector Space Time debacle, now this.
What "debacle"? You mean the actor who played him who thought he could make a webseries based on a character he didn't own and never got permission for? That "debacle"?

No matter who started it, I can't support Dan Harmon's actions at the wrap party. If you've got a problem with someone, the time to make a big deal about it is not in the middle of a party. That's something we all should grow out of by the tie we're 12.
This. Both come off as a-holes in this. Dan, just a little bit bigger of one. And then to release the voicemail... It's a little childish. MORE than a little childish. No one looks good here.

That said, Pierce has been sidelined--most likely due to all of this, so best to let him go.

I'd actually say the same for most of the characters. With every passing year, they're become increasingly absurd versions of themselves. I'd argue the show's becoming a bit of a farce frankly.

This season has had a large number of rather mediocre episodes IMHO, and, to be honest, the Abed/Troy dynamic is being overplayed.

@Zoom you know what I was referring to.

Dan Harmon apologizes.

Speaking of that Inspector Space Time web series...

I thought it was awesome, I would say one of the best of the season so far. But yeah, they could have kept the tension between Abed and Troy a bit longer.

Are you kidding?! This is one of the best episodes they've done, easily up there with the paintball episodes.

Abso-frappin-lutely! This episode was epic! I'm sure Ken Burns is very proud.
I need to watch it again several more times in the near future.
Especially loved Abed's "Doomsday Device".

Yeah, this was right up there with Remedial Chaos Theory as my favourite episode of the season, brilliant stuff.

While his critics suggest that he merely improvised hot-button patriotic dogma in a Ferris Buellerian attempt to delay schoolwork, Winger decries the accusation as "a slanderous betrayal akin to 9/11." Later, after the war, he would refer to the theory as "essentially accurate".
Gotta love Keith David's voice.

I can't wait for when the opportunity arises that I can issue an all tomato to someone. I want the whole tomato and nothing else!

I also loved Dean Pelton's plea for Jeffrey to come save him! That was a great, small, blink and you miss it moment, but it summed up the Dean quite well.

I love how Community is able to do these episodes and give me something unexpected. And, while Keith David is awesome, for half a second at the beginning of the episode, I thought it was Morgan Freeman, which would have been damned cool!

I found this on the internets, behold, the DOOMSDAY WEAPON:

I think my favorite moment of the night was when Jeff asked the narrator if he was in The Cape. The narrator paused. Then. "No."

Funny.

Liked the format of the episode. As with most of the episodes this season I got the feeling of the characters essentially been back to square one as if their development over the previous seasons never happened.

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

A post in Science Fiction & Fantasy mentioned the novels which were nominated for the 2012 Hugo awards, which prompted me to check out the other categories. I was pretty surprised, but happy to see this:

Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form

“The Doctor’s Wife” (Doctor Who), written by Neil Gaiman; directed by Richard Clark (BBC Wales)
“The Drink Tank’s Hugo Acceptance Speech,” Christopher J Garcia and James Bacon (Renovation)
“The Girl Who Waited” (Doctor Who), written by Tom MacRae; directed by Nick Hurran (BBC Wales)
“A Good Man Goes to War” (Doctor Who), written by Steven Moffat; directed by Peter Hoar (BBC Wales)
“Remedial Chaos Theory” (Community), written by Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna; directed by Jeff Melman (NBC)
Now, as a big-Who fan, I'd love to see Who win, especially "The Doctor's Wife," due to my twin loves of Doctor Who and the writings of Neil Gaiman, but I would also love to see Community win, especially since episodes of Doctor Who won in 2011 and 2010.
