    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"?

    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.

    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. :techman:

    Gotta love Keith David's voice. :lol:

    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.

    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:

    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.

    Yeah, as much as I love Doctor Who...it would be great to see Community win for Remedial Chaos Theory. :techman:

    I'd like to see Community win. It's a great Sci Fi episode. Better than Doctor's Wife--which is pretty fantastic, but... Though The Girl Who Waited... very awesome.

    I don't know if I really think it ought to qualify for the Hugo. I don't think we were actually seeing alternate timelines -- we were seeing Abed's musings about what those alternate timelines might be like.

    ^ Yet the alternative timelines were used in a science fiction type setting Sci. I know you believe that Abed was imagining them, but if it was or not doesn't matter in this context. They were used in a science fiction setting and thus qualify IMO.

    This is a tough one. Huge Who fan and I absolutely adored that episode, but also loved this episode as well. I think I'd be fine if either episode won.

    Well, by that logic, did The Big Bang Theory qualify when Leonard imagined Sheldon reproducing through mitosis? Or Scrubs qualify for a Hugo every time J.D. imagined himself in a sci-fi setting? Or The Wonder Years when Kevin imagined himself and his friends as the characters from "Spock's Brain?" Etc.

    I just think it's a stretch. Mind you, if there were a reason to think "Remedial Chaos Theory" wasn't Abed's imagination, I'd agree that it qualifies.

    But I have my own issues with the Hugos. (Nominating the entire first season of Game of Thrones in the Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form category? Nonsense; it's not a single long dramatic presentation, it's a collection of short-form dramatic presentations. And awards acceptance speech skits should never be nominated alongside full episodes in the short-form category. But I digress. End rant.)
