Review – Community – Critical Film Studies (S02Ep19)

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

Heading back, on the track, for a little green bag.

This week:
It is Abed’s birthday, so Jeff arranges an awesome Pulp Fiction party for him. Unbeknownst to Jeff, Abed has his own plans – to have a proper sit down dinner with real conversation.

Pluses:
OMG Abed’s sweater! (This plus the voiceover was an instant tell to the movie they were taking on this week)
The gang’s Pulp fiction outfits.
Troy and the suitcase.
Dany Pudi’s acting.
Jeff’s voice over.
So amazingly funny.
Jeff backstory.
Britta character development.
Not too much Pearce.
Cougar Town (say it in a breathy way).

Minuses:
Little too much Chang (not my favourite character).

With homages to two movie classics as well as the running Cougar Town story line, this episode was up there with the best. The story within a story within a story within a story. Classic. I don’t want to say much more because it will give it away, but if you have seen the major movie this episode hangs on (not Pulp Fiction) you will love every single second of this week’s Community, and probably will love it anyway.

In fantastic recent (since I last blogged about Community) it has been renewed for a third season. It is so nice to see a smart comedy finally accepted and not left hanging with a reasonably early renewal.
