Solid episode showing off the strong points of the show. An episode with Senior Chang, the Dean, Duncan all together in the trial scene is a winner. Plus I got my Annie and Pierce Marvel team up that I asked for last week. Plus Abed and Troy were back together. "What language is that?" "Probably Arabic." Plus Star Burns' real name!
The trial also came to a conclusion I think all the Britta haters appreciated: that bitch is crazy!
This show is wildly uneven from ep to ep to me. This one I didn't like at all (apart from the Duncan and Senor Chang's bickering). I agree with Geemoney on the subplots being bad (especially the school song, and they couldn't spring for a Luiz Guzman cameo), but the main plot was no better.
In the first four episodes, there has been no inkling in my mind that Britta wants to fail. She is the one (other than Annie) that has her shit together. So it seemed entirely OOC that she would sabotage herself. Plus, her and the main character are friends; they established it in the last episode about her boyfriend. Now they are supposedly not even friends? Either the episodes are out of order, or the continuity is screwed up in my mind.
I'm suddenly on the fence about giving up on the show, but since every other episode seems to entertain me (last week's was pretty great), I will give it another shot.

Is it possible to judge how good an adaptation is without having read the source material? I am not asking about judging the adaptation on its own merits, rather I am asking whether you can judge how faithful the adaptation was to the source material?
