The NICHOLAS CAGE EPISODE!
10 September 2020 | by funnypieSee all my reviews

The NICHOLAS CAGE EPISODE! I love this episode, and for all the years after it first aired, my sister and I periodically watch Nick Cage movies and discuss this Greendale class. I totally love Mr. Cage and think he's a talented actor. And this idea as a college course is hilarious. Poor Abed is drawn into the deep mystery....it's irresistible and weird, yet sweetly relatable. It warps my mind sometimes, too. lol
