Another nice touch was how the polygraph guy kept mispronouncing Abed's name just like Pierce always did.

I feel like this episode is the first one back where it's like we "never left". Good stuff.

I admit to getting a little teary. Who imagined Pierce having such insight?

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

I enjoyed it a lot. It's hard for me to relate to comments such as "It feels like it never left" or that "Britta is back." Since I haven't really watched the show enough to see any changes to the characters, I will take your guys word for it though.

As for my DVD viewing, I am very nearly through Season 1, and will probably get into Season 2 pretty quick (since the DVDs are relatively inexpensive) I still beat myself up a bit for not getting into the show earlier.

Chevy was on the Kumars yesterday.

It'd odd, because it feels like he's supposed to be dead.

I love and hate when it happens. It's like "Oh shit I forgot he's not dead", then you are find of happy they aren't.

I think that episode was good enough to be one of my top ten. I'm pleasantly surprised by just how classy they have been in their handling of Chevy Chase's exit. Well, as classy as six containers of super-virile sperm can be.

A few pages back we talked about how the show was supposed to be somewhat realistic.

What. The. Fuck?

Did he give that interview before making this episode?

They figured out how to do paintball again! All they had to do was take out the paintball.

Troy will be missed...

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

In TNG Suspicions the Enterprise is Orbit of a star while they invent metaphasic shielding so that they can go into stars safely.

Loads more examples if you add all the times some on blew up a sun.

How about the show's second (third if you count "Encounter at Farpoint" as two separate episodes) episode, "The Naked Now," in which the crew is investigating what happened to a ship investigating a red dwarf star. The climax involves the crew escaping from the exploding star.

Is it sad that as soon as Troy mentioned the fact that they never trekked to a star, we immediately thought of all the times they did?

Re: Ongoing Community Discussion Thread

You had to think?

I think of "thinking" as asking your brain a question, and then you wait for it to prepare an answer.

This was much like standing on a tube of toothpaste.

I loved this episode, they are just killing it this season. Sad to see Donald Glover go, but I'm definitely interested in seeing how they adapt to this new paradigm.

Yeah this season is really great, probably even better than season 3 and a lot of season 1. I just can't remember what the group is even doing at the college anymore. It's like the first episode "we know it's lame but this is why all the characters are back", and then they just ignore that because they know how lame it was.
