Trivia

This episode aired in the week following North America's largest Doctor Who convention, Gallifrey One. It's unknown if this was intentional. However, the second episode following was set on Thanksgiving, so it may just be a nice coincidence due to the delayed run of the season. See more »

Goofs

As Troy receives the quantum spanner he's holding it where it's lit up then in the next shot he's holding it lower, then back up and vice versa. See more »

Quotes

Annie Edison: We come all this way, and you just leave me alone without so much as sending a text message? I'm sick of it, Jeff... Nigel... Winger!
[tries to throw two more drinks in Jeff's face, but realises they are empty]
Annie Edison: Can I get two more of these, please?
Jeff Winger: Enough! This day has turned crazy. I'm gonna go upstairs, towel off, and pray to God that I wake up in the middle of a final in a class I didn't know I was enrolled in.
[storms off, leaving Annie to huff]

Different but good
22 February 2013 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I think it's pretty clear by now that Season 4 has slightly different priorities than the show had before, namely putting more weight on the sentimental parts. That may or may not sit well with you but that's where we are.

That being said, "Conventions of Space and Time" gets it down well. Not spoiling anything, Troy and Abed's relationship is a big focus of the episode and the issues are presented and resolved in a way only those two could while actually managing to be taken seriously. Overall the Episode features plenty of clever references, stays true to the characters and has plenty of heart. It's not a comedic powerhouse like Community at its best but it got several laughs out of me.

All in all, I'd rate it similarly to "Paranormal Parentage" in that it essentially includes many things I'm looking for in Community, it's just not quite up there with the show's highlights.

Oh, and you get to see Gillian Jacobs in her underwear. How's that for motivation?
