Community, I can’t stay mad at you. It’s no secret that last week’s mean-spirited dud got my goat and that the season as a whole has got my whatever the word is for a group of goats. So when I saw the teaser to this week’s episode, my hopes shot up: “Troy and...

Let’s just get to it, okay? Because I’m in no mood. We start with Chang. What the fuck is up with Chang this season? As last week’s very wise commenter Vengeanceandfashion points out, just a short while ago he was able to hold down a job as a professor—a fake, crazy...

We open in history class, where Bill Haverchuck (or that guy from Party Down to those of you in your 20s) is teaching history. (PS, how hot has Bill Haverchuck gotten—amirite???) He’s playing favorites with Annie—Annie Kim that is. Uh-oh: There’s a hotter, smarter,...

Welcome back, Greendale Human Beings! What a long, lonely time it’s been away from the study group. How was your summer? I spent a couple of weeks up in the Catskills at Camp Recapsalot honing my craft but got kicked out for sneaking into the boys’ bunk. Oh well! Anyway,...

Annnnnd…we’re back! The gang has mostly doffed the spaghetti-Western motif (thanks, recap-part-1 commenters!), and we’re back to plain ol’ regular paintball assassin at Greendale. With the newfound knowledge that Sawyer was a plant (“it doesn’t make sense—why...

PAINTBALL PAINTBALL PAINTBALL PAINTBALL PAINTBALL!!! Okay. The opening is apocalyptic, with Fat Neil running from a paintball-gun-wielding Anthony Michael Hall. (I forgot he was on this!) Annie (or, Ace of Hearts) saves the day, only to turn on him. Fat Neil pleads with her:...

It’s finals time, and Duncan is off the wagon fer realsies—and taking everyone with him. Everyone but Shirley, that is, as she’s with child. For the rest of the Anthropology class, it’s shots and A’s all around. (PS: Fat Neil and Debbie! OMG, yes!) Dean Pelton busts...
