A fantastic song for a fantastic duo; while it's since transcended them for me, even the soundscape of "Forever Yours" is very Troy and Abed and, to be perfectly honest, Community in general.

“Digital Estate Planning” took some liberties getting there, but watching Annie and Shirley cover up a digital murder was priceless and I dug the joke with Abed. (I hope Hilda shows up in the future.) “The First Chang Dynasty”’s failed Ocean’s Eleven riff is pretty good, as well as rescuing everybody’s favorite freaky Dean. I really liked that we got to see the Dean be good; he’s such a good vehicle for jokes that I think we can forget that, but Community has always been good about leveling out comedy with actual human beings. And “Introduction to Finality” was the best pay-off for the Annex joke; “No! We go to the police!” made me laugh out loud, which rarely happens anymore (before midnight). Man, Donald Glover is kind of perfect. I saw his comedy special at Videodrome the other day and I really need to pick it up.

Keep the faith.

Troy is the best. I don’t really have favorite characters on this show—I like ‘em all—but everything Troy did in this episode was golden. And I like the idea of hanging a lampshade on the show, in that everything revolves around them. (And Britta going “pew pew” in the asylum fantasy was adorable.) But I think this might have been funner closer to Halloween, although they do tend to go bigger for Halloween…

Ah, Chang. Let the insanity descend.

A fun parody episode, but I don’t love the parody episodes. They’re always well-done—the Glee parody, in particular, is brilliant, and not just because Taran Killian is in it—but they usually require background viewing to be funny (although to be fair, most episodes of Law & Order are so similar that most modern viewers know the context). Still, I wish it was a bit funnier on its own. Britta’s bit and Annie’s unprofessionalism were hilarious though.

Oh, Abed

(…hey, these are notes.)

I really enjoy the friendship between Jeff and Britta, so I enjoyed watching them both obsess over a man who simply cannot have the crippling esteem issues that they both have, and how the entire group tries to work around it.

Community would mock a Ken Burns documentary, wouldn’t it? God bless you, Dan Harmon and crew, that’s just the kind of insanity I like. I am a bit disappointed that Troy and Abed’s problems got wrapped up so quickly, so I do hope that continues as a source of tension. And this episode reminded me why I like Annie and Jeff so much. I mean, I do ship them, but they genuinely like each other, which, importantly, does not get in the way of Annie calling Jeff on his crap. 

Of course, they’re the third older man/younger woman ship I’ve started shipping hard in the past month or so, so I think I might have a bit of a problem.

The Subway subplot showed a lot of the reasons I find Britta hilarious—obviously, her actress has fantastic awkward timing, but Britta so often fails and keeps rolling. Goodman’s return is quite nice, and the continuation of the situation between Troy and Abed is making me nervous.

Oh, no! (In a good way.)

I blasted through all of Community at the beginning of March to catch up, and, like everyone else, I fell in love with Troy and Abed as best friends (and also Annie! Those puppet shows when she moved in were so cute!). And now their friendship is being tested, and I kind of love it. I have a hard time watching most television shows because I hate procedurals so much. I'm actually having a bit of a hard time watching original Star Trek, because every episode must return to status quo at the end of the episode; the toys must go back into their box just as they were put in, and that's not interesting to me. Character development is my life. And so Community is a huge breath of fresh air, when Harmon and company take something so beloved and begin to play with it in ways it may never recover from.

Aaaaaahhhh. Refreshing.
