What I'd love to see is the episode from the perspective of everyone outside of the delusion. Basically, a live action version taking place in the study room. It would make a great DVD extra, but I doubt they'd commit to doing it.
Seconding "I loved it hard." What a wonderful show. Troy and Abed in stop-moooooootion!
I changed my Facebook status to "Music and cookies and liquor and trees, that's what Christmas is for. Aaaaaand, Christmas Pterodactyl!" and a bunch of people "liked" it but almost none of those chumps will actually watch Community no matter how hard I shill it. Sadness.
I think I've mentioned this before, but I actually teach at a tiny college with two 4-year degree programs, so all of Community's institutional humor really hits home for me. My favorite part of the episode was Duncan saying, "I've been a teacher here for many years, and I think I see a solution to this problem, which coincidentally may help you as well."
I thougt this was a stellar show - both in humor and emotion. I loved Professor Duncan yellong at Abed fromt eh train "At least takes notes!" I also like the nice touch when Shirley grabbed the minora (sp).
I don;t think I have liked a show this much as far as I can remember. And I KNOW I have not liked Chevy Chase this much in a long, long, long time.
I'll agree with most of what's been said already. We really didn't like Mikalah (with my wife referring to her as the "mini-nanny"). Anwar was not very good either...why do they pick these meandering songs?
