    That's why I asked, I didn't know if the pluralization was intentional or not.

    Just because I commit occasional typos doesn't mean that others might not from time to time as well.

    Really! I'm supposed to put down the soldering iron and the newspaper and look away from the computer screen and just watch the television?!?:rolleyes:

    You clearly didn't watch for very long, then, because Britta is definitely not hot, but Annie is, well, yummy. Had you watched more than the first few episodes when Winger was still into Britta, you'd have realized this.

    ;)

    Totally agree. She is not super Skinny. She has curves.

    Moreover, Annie's Boobs is so cute! :D

    I just wish Annie's Boobs would quit running rampant through the air ducts and come out to get more screen time.

    It's not. Bad episode. :(

    Even knowing the tie-ins didn't help. Now Winger's impersonation of the Dean and the Dean's initial reaction to it was awesome. Very funny. But other then that... :thumbsdown:

    Although you wouldn't know it from watching the show, Greendale Community College is officially located in Colorado. The reason why Greendale is in Colorado is because Colorado is one of the few states where a Community College can offer a 4-year degree program.

    This is mentioned in the DVD commentary on one of the season one episodes (I believe it's the Christmas episode and someone mentions that there's no snow on the ground in December in Colorado and someone else asks why it's supposed to be Colorado anyway).

    I agree. I didn't like this episode, and like some of the others the inside joke went over my head, even though, because of this thread I knew it was coming. I did like Winger doing the Dean :)

    I think it's the school where people from South Park Elementary aspire to attend :)

    Actually because it is getting closer to syndication there is still a decent chance it will be back for another season.

    They just signed a deal to put all the episodes on Hulu+. Not sure how that will effect their ability to sell into syndication.

    Ok, forewarning, I haven't read any of this thread. :)

    I don't watch Community; think I may have seen a couple of seconds in passing. But, I'm willing to consider giving it a go.

    What type of humor is it? Is it very broad, or more subtle? Witty, or visual gags? Does it depend on a lot of self-referential humor and callbacks to earlier episodes, similar to Arrested Development, or is it more accessible?

    AD is a good comparison, lots of "inside" jokes, lots of callbacks, lots of pop (and not so pop) culture references. Definitely not broad humor. There ARE sight gags for sure.

    it's all over, sometimes they go for the obvious joke, most of the time it's subtle.. they even had one joke take a couple years:

    the past couple years have been more focused on tv/movie parodies

    Thanks for the warning. I'll avoid. (The pop culture references are fine... but the sight gags aren't my thing, and DEFINITELY not lots of callbacks and inside jokes. Those are the things I found absolutely insufferable about AD.)

    Except AD is very clever and very funny.

    Community isn't nearly as funny or clever. It's funny and clever, but not to the level of AD.
