"They're called the Changlorious Basterds. It's like INglorious Basterds but with "Chang" instead of "In"."

"Pictured here lying down, Troy did not take Abed's email lying down."

Britta can be one of the funniest things in the episode without saying a word.

While not their strongest gimmick episode, this was pretty great. I particularly liked Pierce's doomsday weapon, the description of the battlefield surrounding East Hall, and Jeff's reaction to the camera crew at the beginning. Camera crews really always do lead to trouble at Greendale.

Definitely the best episode since they returned. I loved Britta Britta-ing all her pictures. And where can I watch Ski Shoot Sing?

Thank goodness for this episode. It was so fantastic. Like Tenken347, I loved the description of the East Hall so much I had to pause the episode (it sounded like my favorite scene in BASEketball when the sports guys discuss the different regions of the playoffs). The gags flew so fast that I missed a few of them. New Blanketsburg!

I do have to also say that while last night's 30 Rock was not as good, the joke about "Alexander Windowblinds" made me laugh just as hard as anything on Community.

It was awesome in too many ways to count. Everyone was spot on.

best line: "does anyone go to class here anymore?"

It was also a perfect way to wrap up the tension between Troy and Abed and move away from that storyline in a Community believable way.

Was the voice over guy from "The Cape"? because if he was, then that was just the cherry on the sundae.

Well done (again) Community!

That was Keith David! He will forever be Goliath from Gargoyles to me, but he also has done a billion other roles. And according to Wiki, yes he was on The Cape. Oh and duh, "On April 1, 2012, David performed the voiceover for the intro to WWE Wrestlemania XXVIII."

~KEITH DAVID~!!!!!

I'm surprised you didn't mention his famous brawl with Roddy Piper in They Live!!!! (or the admiral in Mass Effect!! or... but yes, GOLIATH!!!)

So yeah, I enjoyed that cameo.

LOVED the explanation at the end for getting everyone to do their own voiceovers.

Now that Troy and Abed are re-united, does this mean we won't see Evil Abed anymore?

I didn't walk away with the feeling that everything was totally settled.

I didn't think they'd run the entire episode in the documentary send up, but damn was it funny.

I just feel like none of the characters on the show are the same as they were before the break. Abed is not as awkward, Troy is not as silly, Shirley isn't as uptight, Jeff isn't running the show, Britta, while still being hilarious, isn't the same cliche ridden female, Annie isn't as naive, and Pierce is not as blatantly racist, out of touch and ignorant, and is just being played as senile and stupid.

Don't get me wrong, I still love the show, but they just aren't the same as before.
