It's likely that in some future episode, we might get to see how it would have looked. It happened with Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas.

Loved this episode. Absolutely loved it. One of my favourites of all the Community episodes.

Troy and Britta kissing was odd.

Really? I'm not aware of this polarising effect nor are most posters here. Never seen anyone, until now, describe an episode of "Community" as "appalling". Its worst episode is still better than the majority of all US comedies.

This was a particularly brilliant episode - a great one for all the long-term fans. I do wonder what someone, used to the likes of "Two and a Half Men", would have thought if they'd stumbled across this...

Oh I've got to disagree with you there. You don't think Community has had any bad episodes at all? For me the third season has a noticable decline in it's appeal. I mean OK perhaps appalling is too strong a phrase but for me the cracks are really beginning to show here; for example, I particularly disliked the second pillowfort episode, the awful 'pierece's dad' stuff, and the general lack of evolution the show has demonstrated since season 1.

That is not to say it's generally bad - it's not - it's just become quite predictable - with notable exceptions being the crazy-abed-episodes where they shake up the whole format and try something new and bold. This is almost always brilliant (most recent episode, the multiple realities episode) although the pillow fort documentary was snoretastic IMO.

We've had 68 episodes now, Jeff and Annie still want to hump, Britta is still a bore, Shirley is still one-dimensional and Abed-centric episodes are the only thing that continues to bring the magic for me. I'll keep watching - there's still enough juice there to keep me tuning in - but at it's weakest, it is merely an average comedy and can be outclassed by other comedies on right now (personally I'm a huge parks & rec fan but comedy is subjective i suppose).

And I'll disagree with you, overall it's been on a definite upward curve since it started.

That would be "Daybreak" by Michael Haggins. I think it's first heard during Abed's logical Halloween story. Annie hummed it in one episode too.

Don't really follow this thread, but I'm surprised at this to be honest. I must admit that I thought the first 2~3 episodes in season 1 were bad (not appalling, but bad none the less). In fact the only reason I kept with the show was because I was forewarned that the first few were bad, but that it gets much better (which it did).

The imdb message board and Community subreddit always have people saying the episodes are appalling, but personally I think season 3 has been the best yet. Each to their own I suppose. I love the show for the characters, the funny plots help too but it wasn't them that got me interested in the show.

Looking forward to the next episode. Wonder how they will utilise the Todd character.
