solid episode
29 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Abed has run up a huge tab with a celebrity impersonator company so that he can re-enact a number of his favorite movie scenes in person. This leads to his friends having to work off that debt for French Stewart who is playing a former French Stewart impersonator.

To pay off the debt, Shirley plays Oprah, Britta and Troy play the two versions of Michael Jackson, Annie plays Dorothy from the wizard of oz (i think), and Jeff plays Ryan Seacrest.

Jeff is also taking anti-anxiety pills and as it turns out the slight amount of anxiety he carried helped to deflect full out narcissism from forming.

At the end of the episode we have the second appearance of Dark Abed, the Abed that was formed during the episode that showed alternate timelines deviating from who had to go get the pizza.

All in all, good!
