Now with extra Annie's boobs.

 

I think it's close to mandatory to link this avclub coverage with a lengthy interview with Dan Harmon

It just occurred to me that I still have no idea what Chevy Chase's current status is with this show. Still a regular?
post #3 of 2200

Yes.  He appeared at Comic Con with the rest of the cast.

I believe the far more pressing issue is: What is McHale thinking appearing in the new Spy Kids movie?!?  Also, why is there a new Spy Kids movie?!?

Would you turn down a paycheck to hang out in front of a green screen in Robert Rodriguez's garage with Jessica Alba?

 

Also, the AV club interview is a great read, but along with his interview on Marc Maron's podcast made kind of concerned for Harmon; he loves raking himself over the coals. We need to buy that guy a beer and tell him how awesome his show is.

We can do that many times over.  After another 4 seasons.  And a movie!

Lassiter, I would and, more importantly, I have.

Now, let me just take another one of my awesome exit pills...

A quick Season 3 promo.  What's up with the dean's Lenin beard?

You should try following his twitter/tumblr.  He broke up with his girlfriend recently and it's gotten pretty dark. 
 

 

post #12 of 2200

Shit, really? I remember him declaring she would be his "final" girlfriend during his interview with Maron.

post #13 of 2200

The dean looks like he is about to start making meth in some nice south western city

I would pay cash money for that Community episode.  It needs to happen.

 

Hmmmm, maybe the cafeteria's chicken finger batter comes from Los Pollos Hermanos.

Harmon's a genius, but his depression is dark and unrelenting.

post #16 of 2200

 

If you were a Greendale student, who is the last person you would want as a security guard?     Well, that person is a security guard.

post #17 of 2200

The main thing I got from that WTF episode was that Maron seemed a bit intimidated by Harmon.

post #18 of 2200
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This week's EW has an interview with Joel McCale. He said that this season Jeff and Annie will get together this season. I actually could see Abed and Annie being a couple. They're both wild eyed innocents.

 

post #19 of 2200

Abed's wide-eyed, but he's no innocent. I really try not to be a shipper but an Abed and Annie pairing would be funny in just how unhealthy it is. There's been some definite chemistry between the two but it always occurs when Abed is role-playing (literally so in the D&D episode).

post #20 of 2200

Where to begin?  The musical cold open?  The monkey gas induced 2001 sequence?  Cougarton Abbey?  Very strong opener.

 

Also, anyone else get a Hudsucker vibe from the Vice Dean's office, or was that just me?

post #21 of 2200

A really good open for the season. It wasn't the funniest episode the show's ever done but there was a ton of interesting set-up for the season to come. Now here comes the part where the thread devolves to everyone quoting their favorite lines:

 

"You're the opposite of Batman!"

post #22 of 2200

Inspector. Timestream.

 

EVERYTHING ELSE IS A BLUR.

post #23 of 2200

Good table-setter for the season, although the implication of the Dean's meta comment about "this year won't be any different, we'll just have less money" kinda depressed me. Hopefully the budget cuts that seems to be referring to won't hamper Harmon's vision for the show.

You almost had one with Starburns!!!

 

post #25 of 2200

Starburns telling Jeff to "blend".  Gold.

 

I was really wondering if Goodman was going to end up doing gay inferences like the Dean from City used to.  That whole "You bring your head down to my appendage" thing sounded like it was headed that direction.

post #26 of 2200

I liked when Omar called him Starface.

post #27 of 2200

I liked when Annie twirled.

post #28 of 2200

2001, McHale with the axe — any other Kubrick references I didn't catch?

 

Although the axe thing kinda reminded me more of Blair in The Thing.

post #30 of 2200

not enough Troy but having Pierce back makes me happy.

post #31 of 2200

Decent setup, but it felt a tad bit restrained. Not the season 1 or season 2 strong opener, but more a simple setup. I did see potential, but I'll be nice and give a few episodes before thinking we're heading down the season 2 path again.

 

If budget cuts are there, then Harmon should just focus on making really good characters.

post #32 of 2200

Starburns including the lizard in his outfit was GOLD. And the intro reminded me of why I don't watch Glee.

post #33 of 2200

That musical number was better-staged and edited than anything Glee's done since their third episode or so.

post #34 of 2200

Jeff's 2001 monkey knock out gas induced dream absolutely killed me.  I don't know why but I haven't laughed that long in a while.  I love how this show really feels like it's time to go back to school and I'm just excited to see the gang again.

post #35 of 2200

"We have plenty of linens. We mainly want the things."

 

"That’s the great thing about British TV. They give you closure."

 

Also, Leonard wandering through the shot.

post #36 of 2200
Yeah, I mean not amazing but still great to have it back. The worst thing I can say about it is that my DVR accidentally recorded the first 2 minutes of Whitney afterwards ... all kinds of awful.
post #37 of 2200

"I don't wanna push it, but this'd be a great time to baptize him..."

 

"Jeff, what happened? You look...seventy."

 

Also:

 

Chang with a ham.

 

Which goes right alongside Pierce wearing the hot dog suit/the crazed death-robot.

post #38 of 2200

Chimp-An-Zzzzs.

post #39 of 2200

Ahhh, so happy this show is back! I loved how they addressed that Pierce's turn was due to being ostracized by the group. Nice turn of events with Jeff out-Piercing Pierce. And while I can understand people wanting the group to evolve, I'm with Jeff. I don't. I love their dynamic as is.

 

- "I know who Sean Penn is. I saw 'Milk'"

- Did anyone catch the Dalmation photos in the dean's office? Nice call back to his furry fetish.

- "You are the pizza burn on the roof of everyone's mouth. You are the opposite of Batman."

- Yay for Omar as the Bio teacher. Also, his name is Dr. King. :)

- "You look like a White Louis Gosset, Jr."

- Jeff's monkey gas Inception-like dream was amazing.

- Starface

This isn't really a spoiler as Jeff says as much in the musical number.

Totally.

I have to agree with you... this episode felt very restrained. But it really has given a good platform to build on for the rest of the season.

My size and resolution are not good here, but on the whiteboard it says "Trannies, Monkeys, and Toys! Oh My!  What current actor does this refer to?"  Also, I enjoy Elevator Chamber Orchestra poster next to the Hot and Brown's hiring poster.

 

 

post #41 of 2200

This was a pretty solid opener.  Good set up for the season. I like how Change now has some type of authority at school as a security guard, lol.

 

John Goodman was awesome.  Is he going to be recurring this season?  I'd like to see more of him vs. Horrible Dean.

 

Michael K Williams was great, as always.  Good foil for Jeff.

 

The Kubrick references were great.

 

Everything with Abed and the British shows was great.  Inspector Timestream was amazing!

That was expressly how Pierce defended his behavior for all of last season.  Not a new concept, and I'm completely with Jeff, it's not any kind of excuse at all.  This idea that the group has some kind of obligation to like him regardless of how he behaves confuses and irritates me. 
 

 

post #43 of 2200

I recall quite a back and forth on CHUD about whether or not it was explicitly addressed. Still, I get your concerns. I just take for granted that the group is the group and that despite their differences (and with Pierce there are some large ones), they'll always work it out.

That sequence was 100% 2001: A Space Odyssey.

But I love that Chang IMMEDIATELY knew it was monkey gas.

post #45 of 2200
It actually kind of frightened me how much Goodman sounded like Rip Torn when he was talking to the dean.
post #46 of 2200

Goodman is going to be on more episodes than he isn't this season. So that's great. He reminds me of Ned Beatty in Network so far.

 

The episode as a whole wasn't top level Community, but that 2001 sequence and that completely brilliant Cougarton Abbey stuff suggest they haven't lost a step. I'm very excited for this season, and also for Sairus not liking it at all. 

 

I'm delighted Jim Rash is in the opening credits now. Good for him, and for the show for recognizing his worth. As a pansexual imp.

post #47 of 2200

I was sort of disappointed that there was no intersection between the subplots of the Air-Conditioning Repair school making a power play and the issue of a monkey in the air vents.

 

Also, are we to understand that Greendale represents NBC and the Air-Conditioning Repair school represents General Electric?

Ahh, never saw 2001. But it reminded me of the Fischer portion of Inception with a dying Pierce in the bed in the middle of the room.


I assumed Change overheard the Dean's conversation.

 

post #49 of 2200

The table as the monolith killed me more than it probably should've.

post #50 of 2200

I love that there is no explanation for why Chang is carrying an entire baked ham when he runs into Jeff.
