Advertisements When is a clip show not a clip show? When the clips are all brand new. Leave it to the Community writers to skewer one of the most-despised tropes of modern television writing, and to make it hysterical. While part of me thinks that I'd really like to see the entire "episodes" that the "clips" came from (Old West ghost town, St. Patrick's Day/white water rafting, haunted house, mental institution, camping trip, etc.) they worked really well as basically one-off jokes. Some of the things about this ep that I loved: * the callback to the Christmas ep, where we saw what I wrote back then was something I wish we could have seen (the characters around the library table reacting to Abed's claymation fantasy). * The quick pan to the diorama-Chang being left outside of the group while Chang is complaining to Annie's Boobs that he's not sure whether he's in the group or not. (That was a fun sentence to write) * Abed's "The Cape" scene was awesome, as was the argument he and Jeff had about it (complete with the "6 seasons and a movie!" that Abed yelled as he ran off) * The slow-mo "shipper" videos were great. * The montage of Dean Pelton's entrances literally almost had me in tears.
