A man of many words that sometimes actually make sense. Born in Canada City to immigrant parents who don't understand where his sense of "humor/humour" came from. Lover of free wheeling discussion, thoughtfulness, In'N Out Doubles, good beer and horrible British SF. No tolerance for fools (including himself), pointless plots and Bayhem films. Will discuss anything and know nothing.

“Intro To Knots” Community Season 4 Episode 10 Liveblog

Singing In the Rain
The Return of Foot Fetishist Cornwallis

So here we are with episode 10, which is the season’s Xmas episode (thanks for delaying it Ennn Beee Seee.)  This week’s episode synopsis (from wiki):  Community Season 4 Episode 10 “Intro to Knots” – Jeff (Joel McHale) organizes a lovely holiday gathering at his apartment but Annie (Alison Brie) secretly invites Professor Cornwallis (recurring guest star Malcolm McDowell), to get in his good graces. When it becomes apparent that Professor Cornwallis intends to give them a bad grade on their joint History paper, the atmosphere quickly deteriorates and the group takes decisive action.

I thought last week’s muppet episode was quite entertaining especially the hallucinogenic berry scene with Brad Pitt wigged Jason Alexander (and the fact Britta was holding.)  Apparently, this is one of the episodes done after Chevy Chase’s uncomfortably racist comments and subsequent dismissal from the show.  Chevy’s lines were recorded as part of his agreement with the producers.  It’s Merry Xmas, Community fans.

“Intro To Felt Surrogacy” Community Season 4 Episode 9 Live Blog

Not A PuppetIn tonight’s episode, the Greendale Seven have become puppets and befriend a wild mountain man who looks vaguely like the mean guy from Pretty Woman and/or the insecure crazy neurotic bald guy from the show about nothing.

I thought that last weeks episode was entertaining. I did not know who Sophie B. Hawkins was till she started singing and then it was “oh right, I’ve heard of her.” This in a way partially explains why I suck at music trivia or “Guess That Tune.” Even the Abed story was fun although I have to admit that the preacher’s daughter and the quirky weirdo were quite over the top thus making the character played by Brie Larson (who many of you know from “The United States of Tara” and who I know from “The League” as the Golden Gate loving “Ohhhhhh! Pair!”) as the best choice of the three. Brie returns tonight. Continue reading

“Economics of Marine Biology” Community Season 4 Episode 7 Live Blog

Pierce_the_DickishDean Pelton tries to lure a potential rich student (aka whale) to college and he’s enlisted some of Greendale’s favorite human beings (Britta, Annie and Jeff) to help him to the dismay of Pierce Hawthorne aka Pierce the insensitive/Pierce The Dickish/Grandpa The Flatulent. Meanwhile Abed makes a new fraternity (The Timelords of Gallifrey?) and Troy and Shirley take a Phys Ed class.

Sorry about the mix up last week. There was a post ready but I didn’t alert anyone in time.

Last week’s episode wasn’t bad. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad. You can’t “Chang” a Chang as Chang is still the same crazy ass mad dictator dressed as a Cuban Cab Driver and working with someone (Dean Spreck?) to get back at Greendale.  Jeff became the pariah (again) due to his dickish behavior at trying to uncover what Chang is really up to while Abed’s cameras capture the goings on in all their glory.

“Cooperative Escapism In Familial Relations” Community Season 4 Episode 5 Live Blog

That's NICE!
Shirley! From Wikipedia Commons

Tonight we get two things never seen before on Community.  The first one is Shirley’s home life as most of the Study Group go to Shirley’s Thanksgiving (complete with Theo Huxtable, I hope) and the other is meet Jeff’s loser of a dad played by Mr Streisand, James Brolin.

Thanksgiving (more specifically, US American Thanksgiving) has been a sitcom staple and from the description it continues with Community as Shirley’s thanksgiving goes pear shaped and the gang plots their escape.  My personal favorite Thanksgiving episodes are WKRP’s famous Turkey Drop episode and The League’s season 3 episode which ended with viewers gazing into the “vinegar strokes” of Jeff Goldblum.

“Alternative History of the German Invasion” Community Season 4 Episode 4 Live Blog

Joel McHale From Wiki Commons

Here we are for Episode 4. The gang finally goes back to class and find themselves in with a tough prof (Malcolm McDowell, who really should be teaching Roman history) and with the obnoxious Foosball loving “power Krauts” from Season 3.  I’m assuming that Nick Kroll aka Rodney “Please Call Me” Ruxin from The League will be among them.  Also Chang returns to the dismay of Dean Pelton.

Last week’s episode was an awkward 2 way threesome between Abed, Troy and Abed’s Nigerian Banker buddy (Matt Lawson) and Abed, Troy and Britta.  It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t horrible like the Season opener was so there was that going for it. Continue reading

“Conventions of Space and Time” Community Season 4 Episode 3 Live Blog

Donald_Glover_at_PaleyFest2Here we are in episode 3. The “study” group is off to an Inspector Spacetime Convention with the usual or unusual hijinks. One of these days we might see Study Room F again.

I liked last week’s episode. The one thing I enjoy about the Community Halloween episodes are the costume choices. I love that the writers always put Shirley in unexpected costumes, that Britta always gets an unflattering yet cute costume and Trobed match theirs.

Questions I had from last week’s episode: Continue reading

It’s the Britta of Timelines Community Season 4 Episode 2 Live Blog

Gillian_Jacobs_at_PaleyFestYou didn’t think every Community episode was going to be really good, did you?  Oct 19th was like finding out you got socks instead of toys for Xmas or going to bed with Annie and waking up with Pierce.  It wasn’t what Community fans wanted, hoped or dare I say, expected.  After rewatching the episode, I noticed that it could have been a good one, but there was something seriously off.  Maybe it was first day jitters?  Maybe it was that the new show runners have a different idea?  Or it was the worst The Big Bang Theory parody ever?  Yet, here we are ready for Round Two of the Post Dan Harmon era.

If the Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor
Community: Animal House

When we last left our favorite Greendale Community College students, some were finishing up Biology 101 and their 3rd year while Trobed was dealing with separation anxiety.  Now it’s the Jeff Winger Study group’s senior year with the same gang minus the not so dead Star-Burns and creator Dan Harmon.
