Did You Know?


In "Basic Rocket Science," Britta mentions that Greendale has a course in Theoretical Phys Ed. Here, the class turns up on Garrity's list of fake courses. See more »


Troy says that if they raise the blanket fort by two pillows in each corner, they can vault the ceiling and increase the square footage. This would increase the volume of the fort, not the square footage, which is a measurement of area, specifically of the floor. See more »


Troy Barnes: Let's get in our pajamas and build a blanket fort!
Abed Nadir: Let's do it.
Britta Perry: [sarcastically] A blanket fort. Wow!
Abed Nadir: You can come hang out in it with us later if you want.
Britta Perry: Uh, thanks, but I think I'll find something more grown up to do.
Troy Barnes: Okay. Enjoy eating fiber and watching "The Mentalist".

Really incredible!
7 July 2011 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

This episode is pretty much Community at it's finest.

The episode is making a parody of conspiracy theories, but it is completely unpredictable. That is what I love about Community, that it always finds new ways to surprise me. The climax is especially incredible- funny and creative. This is the first episode that I have seen (not seen all of the first season or 2nd season) where some characters of the study group are barely shown at all- Pierce and Shirley. That is not a complaint, since the episode is still pretty great, but one can definitely tell. Still, probably one of the show's best.
