    WOW. Did Justin Lin direct this one too (my DVR cut the beginning)? I liked this one just as much as the paintball episode from last season.

    SO much to like here. Amazing "Aliens" costume idea. LOVED the George Takei narration. I need to watch this one again!

    Call me NERD, because I'm all over this episode. A+

    Cancel this show NBC....I DARE YOU.

    "What is up with that cat?" "Is someone throwing it?"

    Don't dare NBC to cancel Community, Fox canceled AD. Just cause a show is streets ahead of every other show on TV, doesn't mean that ratings don't matter.

    Great episode but it almost seemed like it went on too long and they had to wrap it up in about 30 seconds. Loved the cat!

    And of course zombie Jeff trying to look cool with his Blackberry.

    Hey, shouldn't Pierce have been dressed as Spock?

    The cat was the funniest bit. It was a typical Community ep, which I'm slowly growing bored with. Too much parody and homage--other than getting to congratulate myself on getting it, that doesn't do much for me. Not enough laughs. Worst of all, the characters haven't interested me in a while.

    It was directed by Anthony Hemingway.

    Chang: "Shirley & I totally did it!"
    Troy: "Why did he call me?"

    I swear I had to pause during this scene. I was laughing so loud and so hard, I was having trouble catching my breath. Of course I rewound that about 50x too. It's just funny enough that the cat kept happening because that's totally what scary movies do but then the delivery from Troy was hilarious.

    "Jeff! Still cool as a zombie!l"

    A pretty strange/amusing episode...the Alien costume was a great idea.

    No LOL moments but I did chuckle at the whole Peggy Fleming racist thing..."Guess who I am!"

    Because of the reviews on this board, this was the first Community episode I watched. I loved a lot of it - costumes, zombie plot etc. but am not sure I go everything because I was not familiar with the characters.

    What I liked about the costumes most were ones that you could do at home.

    Maybe I'll try watching it again but I thought this was the third stinker in a row. It's like this show isn't Community any more. It's Community parodying movies and other shows.

    What was the deal with the George Takei voiceover? I didn't get that.

    OK, I'll admit it: I didn't get the cat thing. Was that referencing something specific?

    Overall, I thought the episode was a little weak. Not being a big fan of zombie/horror movies is probably a big reason why it was a miss for me.

    I wouldn't say this was a stinker, but I did think it was "eh" and I've gotten really tired of the movie parody schtick. Although I will admit that I loved the Aliens costumes.

    Last season, this show would have spent more time focusing on the aftermath of Shirley and Chang getting it on. This season, it's an end credits joke and they used the episode to have more zombie shots.

    The other thing about this episode--I've never seen such a violent sitcom episode before. The sound fx with the biting were a little too much at times.
