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!"

Abed is awesome.

I liked "Getting Rid of Brita," and I too have begun to compare Annie to Pam a bit.

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.

Community impresses me with its use of positioning characters in the back of scenes, like they did this week with Shirley's reactions or Jeff and the vending machine.

I'd jump on the Annie-bandwagon but her youth only serves to make me feel old...

I loved Pierce getting trapped behind his own keyboard stand. And Von getting Garfunkel and Garfield confused.

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?

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.

Well...she graduated high school in 2001, so (barring that she's a 12 year old genius) I'd say that puts her at about 24 or 25? ...which still serves to make me feel old...

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?

The line of the week for me was Abed's "I have a bunk bed, which is kind of a misnomer because it's the real deal."

I love that you have to be really alert to get everything Abed says.

You are in for a treat, at least for most of the seasons.
