Okay, not to be “that person” on Tumblr, but come on. I’m sick of people acting like there will be ~one episode~ that will convert non-believers into Community fans! It’s like when “Documentary Filmmaking: Redux” aired and everyone was all, “Oh, but this one is for the insiders; it’s not a ‘conversion’ episode.” DUH-DOY! Community’s inside jokes are what make it so amazing! If I mention “Garrett” or “Louis Guzman” or “Barenaked Ladies,” Community fans know what I’m talking about and THEY DIE LAUGHING. It’s not like in a regular show where something is brought up a couple episodes later for a laugh and that’s it. Community is built on itself, on a series of references and inside jokes that mean when I say “Shut up, Leonard” you laugh because you not only know who I’m talking about, but you remember every previous time that was funny and why it’s especially funny now!
Community’s appeal cannot be captured in a single episode, not anymore. Either watch every episode that came before and really appreciate the show, or prepare for a Blorgon attack.
Community 3.11: Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts
Troy:I can't believe Shirley! We should just show up to this wedding and be the most normal people in the world.
Abed:Yeah. I can go as Normal Man, and you can be my trusty sidekick, Ordinario.
Troy:Hah- No. It's already weird. We should just show up wearing normal grey suits... with grey ties and grey shirts... we can dye our hair grey and then we can lay down on the sidewalk and be invisible! ...okay, maybe Shirley has a point.
Abed:I have an idea. What if we purged all the weirdness from our systems?
Abed:A full 24-hour weird-down in the Dreamatorium. Just you, me, and our imaginations. No restraints. By the wedding, our temptation to act weird will be gone.
Troy:I'm feeling more normal already. Crabwalk home?
