AMAZING halloween episode of COMMUNITY this week!!!

28 Oct

Hello! just wanted to share with everyone that I just saw this week’s episode of Community, which was obviously Halloween-inspired. It rocked!

The episode revolves around a lame “intimate” party Britta organizes for the group, with the ulterior motive of finding out which of the 7 people in their little group has homicidal tendencies (as she discovered in an anonymous psych test she made them take). Britta decides to tell scary stories to see how the others react to them; because of the crappiness of the stories, each one in the group feels the need to tell one of their own, each story crazier than the next. This scenario, helped out by the electric damage on campus that’s making the lights flutter, creates the perfect balance between creepy and just plain funny. As always, the show uses perfect film techniques to set the mood, just to crush it with the most absurd situations.

I can’t leave this post without recalling Abed’s part in the story because he is always awesome. As the first choice for the psychopath role in everyone’s minds, he doesn’t disappoint when he clearly states that he didn’t care at all for the suffering of the people in Britta’s story, which makes her worry deeply… Never the less, he subsequently makes a detailed analysis and critique on the ‘narrative errors of the dramatic arch -yadda yadda yadda-‘ of Britta’s story. I would hope that someone out there reading this gets as psyched as me about the way Abed sees everything through a cinematic and audiovisual lense, everything in life is a representation of years of film history that needs to me clinically studied. On this note, I recommend people search for one of last season’s episodes called “Critical Film Studies”, where Jeff tries to surprise Abed with a Pulp Fiction inspired party, only to be sidetracked by Abed’s own messed-up agenda. If you are a cinephile, you will love it.




BRITTA: I told you guys you didn’t have to dress up!

TROY: Oh, we where wearing this when you called

ABED: Yeah, when we dress up, you’ll know it.
