Community, Season 4, Episode 7: “Economics of Marine Biology”

Written by Tim Saccardo

Directed by Tricia Brock

Airs Thursdays at 8pm Et on NBC

The last three or four episodes of Community have settled into a pattern that we have to assume is the new normal for the show. They are primarily emotionally, rather than comedically, driven, and a primary focus seems to be Jeff’s relationship with his father. This is particularly true of tonight’s episode and the Thanksgiving episode, but it also factored heavily into the Halloween episode. This works, to the extent that it does, because the show seems to be developing a feel for the characters. The other aspect to these episodes, that is far less effective (and were it effective it might help to offset the show’s general humor deficit this season), is Abed’s attempt to mold the narrative via pop culture references. »
