And here it is, the (bottle) episode I've been wanting. For my money, the new series apex episode. Better than paintball, Halloween 2009, and zombies as far as I'm concerned.
Just the principal characters locked in a room for 90% of the episode (with the Dean and Annie's Boobs in quick cameos). All of the characters 100% being themselves and true to themselves and each of their points of view. The cast and writers making their strongest case that Community is the funniest show on TV with the best ensemble cast on TV.
Shouldn't the episode have been called "The Evolution of (Pen)man?" Between the cold open, "accidents don't just happen over and over and over again, ok?", accepting the ghost explanation, and Annie's Boobs, this felt like watching a bottle episode where people debated evolution for a half hour.
So last week, my favorite part was Abed's HUD reminding him to record Cougar Town (as should all of you, it's awesome), with second place being the seemingly random listing of cycles. I retroactively declare the cycles as the best part.
I also am looking forward to Shirley coming to the logical conclusion that she has immaculately conceived.
It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects. "Well. Shit." -hansen9j Let's Go Riders! (10-8, 2nd West Division) Go Pack Go! (6-3, 1st NFC North)
I passed on this show last season, and decided to give it another go this year, kind of like I did with The Office originally. I'm glad I did too. It has yet to disappoint this season.
Now, I just wish there was a way to close the half hour gap between Community and Office, because I have never found 30 Rock funny, and I've given it more than enough tries to win me over. The only show in the Thursday comedy lineup that I don't like, as I'm really enjoying Outsourced as well.
