I won't go into detail yet since the West coast has not seen it, but I think this episode is already one of my favorites.

Once again, the bar has been raised. In every timeline.

Hall of Fame episode, for Community and for television as a whole. Up there with The Paintball Trilogy, the Bottle Episode, Dungeons and Dragons, Claymation Christmas. Four episodes in and this is shaping up to be the greatest season of Community ever.

Sometimes I watch this show, and I'm sure in ten years it'll be the subject of a for credit course at a university. Just breaking down the intricate layers of episodes like this. Maybe Justin will teach it?

This worked as a great counterpoint to last week's episode. You catch this group on the wrong day, they are a horrible people to deal with, but the difference may just be a role of the dice. They have good points and bad, and feelings that can't always be as easily expressed as a Earth Kitt sex story, but they still exist in all realities.

Except, if you see a gun in a handbag in the first act, it's shooting someone dead in the third. And everything is Jeff's fault.

Crisis On Infinite Communities. Jeff Winger is the Anti-Monitor. Pierce is Supergirl. (Or something like that...)

Even the very beginning of the episode was a joke (they were confused about whether Troy and Abed lived in appartment 303 or 304, because NBC shuffled this from episode 3-03 to 3-04).

Excellent episode. I don't want to live in the Troy timeline.

Just for you guys, @GillianJacobs wrote the "Is it 303? I thought it was 304" gag in tonight's episode. Our cast is genius.

This is easily my second-favorite episode of the show, just behind original Paintball, and ahead of Dungeons and Dragons. There were just so many moving parts to this episode, and the way everything came together was really elegant. The people saying that this illustrates both the cast's good and bad aspects are dead on; in some of the timelines you can even see both at the same time. On top of that, the main timeline did a stellar job of making the cast sympathetic again after last week's show, and all the odds and ends that were displayed throughout the episode (like Troy getting upset that Jeff wasn't treating him as an adult) definitely set things up for later in the season. Just great television.

Also, I really loved that the sting had a callback to Shirly's drinking problem. That's particularly interesting that they'd bring that up again in a throwaway bit.

This episode was fantastic and make the episodes that annoy me like last week seem all worth it. I don't know if they set up the jerky episodes in front of these episodes on purpose or not, but it's effective.

The little things like the build up of the sleezy pizza guy, and then we see Britta with the sleezy pizza guy.

I'm hugely disappointed that Annie had a gun and there was not a single Annie Get Your Gun musical reference.

I want Evil Troy and Evil Abed to come back.

Was Britta imitating Jar Jar Binks?

Chops busted, fellow adult. Chops busted.

Anyone notice that the actor who played Todd from last week was on Modern Family this week?

I'm so glad that - after this week's awesome Parks & Recreation, The Office, and Community - that I have Whitney to remind me that I'm pretentious for laughing at comedies that are actually funny. Whitney was so bad that I stopped watching it to go clean the dishes - and we have a dishwasher.

That is the best analogy for Whitney. I wanted to give it a shot but I am done. I was watching sat work and turned it off to do work. It is a shame - Community was awesome and The Office is chugging along. I was a very late comer to Park and Recreations so I am DVRing all of them so I can watch them when I get caught up to this season. Whitney is the shit cherry on top of an awesome ice cream sundae. Surely they can find a better alternative ("They can't - and don't call me Shirley!").

My favorite part was Troy trying to get the gift from Pierce and screaming "you are really bad at gift giving".

Again, easily in my top three all time episodes.

With the introduction of Inspector Spacetime and also the intersection of Earth's 1 and Earth's 2 at the Model UN, are they laying the groundwork for Evil Troy and Evil Abed successfully breaking into the actual timeline? Not that I know how it will make sense, but if it happens as part of the post-credit scenes that would be awesome.

OMG that would be great. Yes it needs to be an end credits thing outside the Community continuity but it would be great.

The only thing I didn't like was the repeating of the "You're creating alternate timelines" lines repeating over and over. Seems like they could've cut that down and written more awesomeness.

So this episode, besides everything else, is perfect proof why anyone hating Britta/Gillian is a fucking moron.

Put me down with those of youse guys who've called this an all-time top 3-5er.

I think Troy discovering what the troll has wrought will end up on the shortlist of the funniest scenes on TV all year, and the revelation that Jeff cutting off Britta wasn't just a running joke but he'd actually prevented everyone from being happy and having fun will go down as one of the most poignant.

The plotting of ET&EA would be perfect as an ongoing thing for the closing credits. Evil Cameron Diaz rap, evil krumping.

What I like about the show is how they've made Jeff as much of an oddball as the rest of the cast. I hate when sitcoms have the one "perfect" character. I call it the Claire Huxtable effect.

And is it just me or is "Pizza Pizza" Brita way hotter than generic hot girl Season 1 Brita?
