    That'll do. That'll do.


But if they deliver third acts as touching as this one, they can do as many straightforward episodes as they want. Aww. I thought the plot turning on that Troy text was the most emotionally resonant thing on the show since the end of Remedial Chaos Theory.

BRITTA IS AMAZING, simply the best thing going. Baller move to flip "the opposite of Batman."

Summing up the Britta/Jeff/Annie love triangle in three wordless laughs is a sign of a show that really understands its characters. (Or its characters who aren't Pierce and Chang, I guess.) Similarly, top marks for realizing that Jeff and Shirley make good friends/co-conspirators, a throughline from that first Vaughn episode at the beginning of season 1 through foosball.

I thought this was a great episode. And I must say I am DYING to find out what Troy texted to Britta. I hope someday they let that be known.

Abed's stand up act at the end was hysterical. Even better was having the Dean in the audience.

I look forward to next week and see if they have the genius to put Troy and Britta as a couple and how that would affect Troy and Abed's relationship.

The sweetest, most heartwarming endings seem to happen at Troy/Abed/Annie's apartment. I, uh, guess that includes Abed and Evil Abed in the Dreamatorium.

She's also the fastest texter in the known universe judging from the speed she was texting Annie/Blade. I guess it helps she is a terrible speller.

This episode was a personal all-star effort for me. When Jeff gave his "we have to learn to stop hating ourselves speech", I thought, "Did Dan Harmon write this one?" Rewind and sure enough: "Written by Dan Harmon". You can always tell a Dan Harmon.

Also, this episode really, really made me want to watch Blade (again).

I always seem to Britta putting up pictures in threads here, but of all the jokes in the episode that killed me, "Read the banana, Britta." (twitter.com)especially killed me.

I also thought this was a standout episode. It actually managed to contain a reference to almost every main character's defining flaw: Britta's self-loathing, Annie's desire (and inability) to help everyone, Abed's inability to understand emotional situations, Troy's indecision about events in his life, and Jeff's desire to get something (in this case, affection) without putting in any actual effort on his own part. The only one who I don't have anything for is Shirley, whose flaw I would say is the fact that she judges others based on the mistakes she herself made in her own past. Five out of six main characters is still awfully impressive, though.

Simply outstanding. That was one of the two rewind moments I had last night. The other was, "I need help reacting to something" - my favorite line of the night.

I loved "That's from his album." If the show ever spins off, Troy and Abed should get their own show.

Is it just me or has Britta looked slightly different the last few episodes? I can't tell if they're doing something different with her make-up or if she got botox or something?

This episode explained such a simple concept to me. Why so-called aloof men/bad boys draw some women in, they simply have little to no shame in their actions. Community honestly helped me understand a big part of my last relationship.

Thanks Blade. You fantastic kickboxing vampire you.

Funny how Britta is now the best thing on the show when so many shit on Britta Perry: Feminist Icon at the beginning. Britta for the win.

I really loved the closing credits too. You just know Troy brushes his teeth like that.

I agree that she got better, but I did see the character of Britta as super annoying in season one especially. Now though, she truly is one of the best characters on the show. So she and the writers get some dap from me. Now only if they would flesh out some other characters as well (Star Burns, I'm looking at you...r facial hair).

I kind of was too, but the last episode he was on, where he was in court against Alan and pretty much cured, was a great one I thought.
