  • A hilarious episode, but where does it fit in with the rest of the season?

    9.5
    Community never fails to entertain me, and it never fails to be creative. This week's episode was filmed doctumentary style, so if by nothing else, it stands out from the rest of the episodes in that way. But the episode also stands out in that Pierce is in the hospital for the pill addiction that has been present for quite a few episodes, but I wouldn't say that it has been building up over those episodes, so his hospitalization did not really feel right to me. But still, in order for the plot to work, he had to be there, and the plot did lead to hilarity, so I guess it was worth it after all.



    My personal favorite moment(s): Troy's reaction to LeVar Burton. First of all, Donald Glover is the FUNNIEST MAN on TV. Second of all, I feel I would have a similar reaction if I met any of my idols, say Donald Glover himself! His face was perfect, and any excuse to let him sing is fine with me. I would have to say that that was the best subplot of the season so far!moreless

    • Jeff: (After a nurse tells him he can't enter Pierce's room) Or what? You'll do twice as much work as a doctor for half the pay?
      Nurse: Thank you?
      Britta: (To the confused nurse) It's called a "complisult". Part Compliment, part insult. He (Jeff) invented them, I coined the term. See what I did there? That was an explanabrag.
