Trivia

In season three, episode twenty, "Digital Estate Planning", the study group plays a video game that Pierce's (Chevy Chase's) father designed. While inside the video game, Abed falls in love with a video game character, with whom he then goes on to create video game babies. When the game is over, and Abed is leaving the warehouse in which the game is stored, he secretly copies the game to his USB drive, so he can be with the woman he loves. After the credits of that episode, Troy and Abed walk into the study room and find a baby on the table. When the baby's mother picks the baby up and walks out of the room, you can hear the baby say "cool, cool, cool". It appears that the woman he loved became a real human being, as did one of his babies. See more »

Brilliant
25 September 2009 | by vansebastianSee all my reviews

i am very critical of television. i hate clichés, shows that try to teach you things, and more than anything ripoffs(like the fact that family guy takes most of its plot lines form old simpsons episodes). but Community is original, and dead-on with every punchline. Abed has some of the best delivery i have seen in years. everything he says and the way that he says it is side-splitting. the whole episode i am just longing for more words to come out of his mouth. brilliant beatbox/rap at the end of episode 2 by the way. Joel McHale is a great leading man who plays an ass trying a little harder not to be an ass(maybe its just to get a girl but regardless). i was confused about the purpose of chevy chase in this (dont get me wrong, he is hilarious, but in this he's just a side character) until i saw the second episode (Spanish 101) in which he does a Spanish presentation that is golden. no more doubts in my mind.

this show is bound for great things. my only concern is that every show that i love gets canceled because not enough people get it. (Firefly, Arrested Development, Freaks and Geeks). So i just hope people give this show a chance. i was won over after one viewing. This is one of the nicest surprises i have seen in a long time and i strongly encourage you to at least watch the pilot on HULU. worth every minute.
