Trivia

One of the Germans says to Jeff, "I wish there was a word to describe the pleasure I feel at viewing misfortune." Ironically, the word "Schadenfreude," which comes from German, means "misfortune-joy," or, "joy at seeing another's misfortune." Psychology considers Schadenfreude, like other malicious emotions, to be a normal part of the human psyche, but, of course, it can become maladaptive or pathological if a person can only derive joy in this fashion.

Abed is Batman now - Christian Bale
29 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Any community episode that involves Abed dressing up as Batman is an instant classic in my opinion. The two main plot-lines in this episode are that Annie breaks Abed and Troy's exclusive Dark Knight DVD and lies about it causing Abed to go vigilante to discover the truth. Meanwhile Jeff and Shirley get involved in some foosball competition and in the process discover that they share some similar memories.

Highlights from this episode include - as mentioned before Batman Abed, but also Jeff and Shirley morph into Anime characters when they play each other at foosball and some hostility arises.

Also at the very end Leonard gives a review of some pizza, which is funny, Leonard is a good side character.
