After all the thread info I completely forgot the show returned. What an idiot!
DVR saves the day.
Tonight's episode will not win any new fans and it didn't aim for the funny as most episodes do. However this episode gave me one of the biggest laughs I've had in along time.
For the first ten minutes Annie was more distracting than any scene with Gloria on Modern Family and the view was stuck in my head all the way through the commercial. I thought it was hilarious that it was an intentional setup that paid off with Jeff's equally distracted heart flashback.
Annie's boobs were the best joke of the evening and for once it wasn't the monkey.
I also thought the Inspector Spacetime exchange was funny too."Troy this isn't the time."
"Or is it not the space?
I like the direction they seem to be taking with Pierce if it means more slapstick and pratfalls that Chevy does best, but the ending? No Troy and Abed? Something isn't right there.
I also see that Subway have moved out of the Buy More and taken up retail space at Greendale. Will Subway be the savior of yet another show? Can we expect Abed to be seen eating footlongs and describing the awesome ingredients? I'd be fine with that if it meant a cameo from Big Mike.
