THING.


I guess the goal was to carpetbomb the first post-Donald episode with a guest star in every speaking part. I thought the episode was wonderfully season 1-esque in its laid-back campus stakes (particularly shaded in the Duncan/Chang interactions), although I guess the byzantine inner workings of Greendale is more of a season 2 thing.

For only being in four episodes, Buzz Hickey already feels like a vital and vibrant Community character. John Oliver is going to have a much more daunting task filling the Troy void, but he's fantastic in and of himself ("you might ask, uh, WHAT DO YOU MEAN?"). Plus Brie Larson, one of those "intense bursts of compatibility with a girl we never see again," was a welcome incorporation from what seems to be the majority opinion best part of season gas leak.

Also there was a lot of very funny vintage Dan Harmon punchlines-imbedded-in-dialogue jokes.

Any chance Bloodline of Conquest has something to do with D&D part 2?

Lost in how much I'm enjoying this season is the almost perverse hilarity that Parks & Rec is already coming back next year and Community almost certainly is too. It's the Daniel Bryan of NBC. It seems like Dan getting kicked off the show will actually end up being the most stabilizing thing for both him and Community in the long run.

Fist bump? Fist bump.

Again, I keep reminding myself that he's the guy who got beaten up by Axel Foley in front of Victor Maitland at the country club.

For those who missed it, here was the breaking news crawler while Hickey watched TV...

"BREAKING NEWS: Levar Burton and non-celebrity companion captured by pirates in the Gulf of Mexico."

Sounds like they were talking about Game of Thrones like they use Inspector Spacetime for Doctor Who.

It was certainly a GoT reference with a Red Wedding reference in the end to really sink it in.

Shit must rewatch Leon the Professional now.



I believe in The Shield....

I am thoroughly enjoying the further incorporation of Garret and Fat Neil in various awesome ways this season.

Fantastic episode. Loved the whole thing.

I hope this becomes a recurring bit somewhere in every episode for the rest of the season.

My only complaint is that it felt like a waste of Nathan Fillion. If he's going to guest star, he could carry his own episode.

I wonder if Duncan's call at the end was related to the zombie incident a few years ago.

There is only one thing that I am picking up tomorrow (worked today so that was out), and that is the new MST3K collection. I haven't seen any of the four movies, and hopefully Best Buy has the collection with the Tom Servo figurine.
