Trivia

School Rumble (2004-2005), a comedy anime series, had a 2-part episode where high school students would use the campus for a pretend 'shootout' and things get overly dramatic and serious just like in this episode. But instead of paintballs, the students used pellet guns; instead of the whole school, only one class participated; and instead of leaving after they were shot, the students had to play dead. This was basically the same episode save for all the American pop culture references. See more »

Goofs

When the study group groans at Jeff and Britta's bickering, the two of them, or at least their books, should be visible in the shot but aren't. See more »

Outstanding Episode
24 September 2014 | by (Mannheim, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is the first episode of Community that will later define and characterize typical Community-episodes.

The first few minutes start as usual. But then after Jeff wakes up, he wakes up in a post-war scenery....

This episode is depicted as a kind of parody, but also kind of an homage to action movies. It is not that much exaggerated as parodies are most times. Parody episodes are just about making fun of the clichés....but in this episode of Community it fits all in. The whole story of the Season arc is developing, you get the know the cast better, more important: you get to know the atmosphere and state- of-mind at the Community college better, and all these nice developing scenes are surrounded with brilliant action scenes. The plot is very well and it looks like they made right choices everywhere (Chang as the psycho Headhunter, the slow-mo scenes).

And then sometimes, you briefly leave the action scenery for a quick moment of reality "in a TV series" and find yourself sucked in from the happenings only to realize "oh it's only blood..no paint!" :D

One of the best early episodes, outstanding from the other episodes so far...in a different way. Community has more of these nice half-parody, half-homage episodes and all of them are good.

10/10
