My apologies, gang. Apparently my shit-filled brain did not write a recap of last week’s Community which makes me an epically horrible person. Also, epically is not a word but my Microsoft Word no longer catches it because I use it so often which means I can never count on spell check again. *Sad face* (Except I really hate spell check so it’s no great loss.) Anywho, I’m going to be fabulous and recap THIS week but if ya’ll say in the comments that you still want to read one for last week, I’ll do a makeup recap.
Can we start by talking about the Hawthorne Wipes commercial? I mean first, the utter mockery of Rick Santorum within it was fucking awesome. And then it had rainbows. I was hoping for unicorns but I guess the implication that they were involved was there.
So I really don’t know why I pretend to recap the actual plot of the show because there never really is one, but this one had Pierce heavily involved so I really don’t pay attention. Apparently his dad died and Jeff had raging father issues again. Which means that I’m not really going to even pretend to complete an actual analysis. Basically, Community is fucking awesome and I’ve included favorite bits & bobs & quotes below.
Bits & Bobs:
Troy’s plumbing skills are back! Happy Day! The whole secret heating/air conditioning society was really weird to me and of only minor interest. I was more interested in how Abed wasn’t missing Troy throughout the day.
Inspector Spacetime is still an important show on the show. I can’t wait until Troy and Abed start writing fanfiction for the show. (I wrote this before the bonus ending. Clearly I didn’t have to wait very long for the fanfic script).
I want that wipes container. So bad. So, so bad.
The comic gold of Britta being a psych major now is just awesome. AWESOME.
First, Hitler in a corner. I don’t even fucking know what to do with that. Also, I’m now craving paninis.
I can’t even begin to describe the horrible awesomeness that was Pierce’s father. It’s like if the Colonel had fundamentalist tourettes.
Ya’ll, I do not know how to express my love for the whole Troy, Abed!Troy, Troy!Abed, Harrison Ford, Abed conversation. But I would like it to happen a lot. Also seriously, the way Danny Pudi delivers that “don’t get cocky, kid” always makes me a little weak in the knees.
I never really care about Jeff’s daddy issues, just because every male on television seems to have daddy issues. Angry Joel McHale is really hot though.
“Come to the third floor men’s room anytime after 3. Unclog one toilet with me and see how you feel.” (You really can make this shit up) ~Janitor
“Stop putting gay things in my mouth.” ~Pierce
“They may be in defiance of God but I’d die before I let a woman touch my hair.” (Sometimes Shirley’s quotes are so Shirley and sometimes they are actually hysterical).
“All men have this complex where they have to kill their fathers and do something with their mothers and I haven’t finished the chapter.” ~Britta (Response as per Jeff: “What’s that thing where you’re wrong about everything?”)
“He’s like the Abed of racism.” And DEAD. ~Shirley
“I can excuse racism, but I draw the line at animal cruelty.” ~Britta
“Stand up straight Piercenald when talking to the lower classes.” ~Pierce’s dad.
Abed: “Are you Superman?” Troy: “No.” Abed: “Would you tell me if you were?” Troy: “I’d tell everyone. I’ve never understood why he cared who knew.” And this is why cocky Marvel heroes will always be greater than brooding, emo DC comic heroes.
