Troy and Annie are the new Jim and Pam. Except different, since Troy's black, they're both 18, go to community college, Troy's oblivious to Annie's liking him and not in denial about it like Pam was, etc.
Troy and Annie skyrocketed in the last couple of weeks to being my favorite characters on this show. Well, Annie was already there, but Troy is now up there with her. I also liked Shirley's facial expressions in the background during all the scenes Annie gave Troy advice.
Great cameo by Patton Oswalt as "Male Nurse." The condoms and Troy's "I'll be thinking of you" to Annie killed me.
"Getting Rid of Britta" should be on iTunes. "She's a GD B!"
I love this show. It is firlmly in my top five of favorite comedies on right now. 30 Rock, The Office, Community, How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory are my top five. In fact, I don;t watch any other comedies (outside of the occassional animated shows).
Abed is awesome. I don't think there has been a character like him on TV ever, which makes his character even more awesome. This show even got my to like Chevy Chase - and I hate Chevy Chase. Much like 30 Rock did with Alec Baldwin.
"This isn't over Pierce". I anxiously await the next confrontation.
I woke up this morning singing Getting Ridda Britta and didn't know what it was and then remembered what it was and then loved it. Calling people a B is great.

He's kind of the Hawkeye around there.

I can't wait until ABC puts Modern Family and Better Off Ted together. That ... is going to happen, isn't it?
Originally posted by EddieBurkettI'd jump on the Annie-bandwagon but her youth only serves to make me feel old...
For what it's worth, Alison Brie's age seems to be a well-guarded industry secret (or, at the very least, it's not listed on her Wikipedia or IMDB page.) She's definitely older than eighteen - and she seems signifigantly older on Mad Men.
Originally posted by EddieBurkett I loved Pierce getting trapped behind his own keyboard stand. And Von getting Garfunkel and Garfield confused.
I have to assume Pierce getting trapped behind the keyboard was a nod to Ty in Caddyshack getting trapped behind the bar while trying to have a conversation with Judge Smails. Am I the only one who thinks that?
Season 1 has the lowest ratings, but looking at what little data I could find, it's been on a slow decline since Season 6 which looks like their biggest numbers in raw viewership numbers. Season 1 -- Season 9: (viewers in millions) Premiere: 9.
