HULK’S COMMUNITY QUICK TAKE: “REMEDIAL CHAOS THEORY”

October 14, 2011

HELLO ALL. HULK HERE. SO A FEW WEEKS AGO HULK THREATENED YOU ALL INTO WATCHING COMMUNITY UNDER PENALTY OF SMASH.

WELL THE SECOND AND THIRD EPISODES CAME AND WENT AND WERE FUNNY, SHARP, AND FULL OF GREAT CHARACTERIZATION.

BUT NEITHER WERE ONE OF THE “GENRE-BENDING TRANSCENDENT EPISODES” THAT HAVE COME TO MAKE SOME PEOPLE FALL IN LOVE WITH THE SHOW.

WELL TONIGHT, THERE WAS ONE OF THOSE.

ENTITLED “REMEDIAL CHAOS THEORY” THE GANG GOES TO VISIT TROY AND ABED’S NEW APARTMENT AND AWESOMENESS ENSUES.

PLEASE ENJOY THE RAPID-FIRE INVENTIVENESS VIA HULU: THAT’S RIGHT. IF YOU NO WATCH COMMUNITY, HULK GIVING YOU THE GIFT OF THE ENTIRE FUCKING EPISODE!

EPISODE NOTES IF SEEN THE WHOLE THING.

-“THE ENDING IS THE CONCEIT” HULK SAYS IT ALL THE TIME, BUT IT’S GREAT WHEN A SHOW KNOWS IT. HARMON + WRITING STAFF COME UP WITH A GREAT IDEA HERE AND DON’T JUST LET IT FIZZLE OUT, THEY COME UP WITH A WAY TO GET TO THE HEART OF THE IDEA AND THEN CLOSE THINGS OUT. ABED’S SPEECH AND REVERSAL BY TURNING IT BACK ON JEFF WAS WONDERFUL. BETTER YET, AFTER ALL THE CRAZINESS, IT WAS EARNED.

-SOMEHOW THEN LOOPING BACK TO THE “EVIL” TIME-LINE IN THE KICKER WAS ALSO MORE GENIUS.

-COMMUNITY IS A SHOW THAT ACTUALLY HAS A LOT TO SAY ABOUT THE WAY CERTAIN PEOPLE INFLUENCE OTHER PEOPLE. PEOPLE SOMETIMES JUST HEAR A “JOKE” IN A LINE, BUT LOTS OF TIMES THERE ARE WHOLE ATTITUDES AND IDEAS GOING ALONG WITH IT. THIS EPISODE HAD A LOT TO SAY ABOUT THE WAY JEFF’S CYNICAL INFLUENCE PREVENTS THE GROUP FROM EITHER ENJOYING THEMSELVES OR BEING SUPPORTIVE OF ONE ANOTHER. JEFF IS HILARIOUS BUT IT’S IMPORTANT THAT ANYONE WHO PREVENTS EVENTS THAT COULD EVENTUALLY LEAD TO A DANCE PARTY ISN’T THE KIND OF PERSON YOU WANT AROUND… WHICH ACTUALLY MIGHT BE THE ENTIRE POINT OF COMMUNITY.

-IN FACT THE EPISODE (OBVIOUSLY) HAS A TON TO SAY ABOUT WHAT THE WORLD IS LIKE WHEN ONE OF THE CORE GROUP IS REMOVED FROM IT.

-IS IT HULK OR HAVE THE MADE THE ACTIVE CHOICE TO GIVE PIERCE GREAT MATERIAL THIS SEASON? HIS ASIAN/WOMEN BIT SLAYED A FEW WEEKS BACK AND TORG THE TROLL WAS GREAT TONIGHT. AS WAS “BANNED IN SERBIA”

-AS WAS ABED’S STUNT WITH THE JEFF INVITE.

-AS WAS THE “WHAT DOES A PREGNANCY TEST LOOK LIKE?” LINE AND TROY’S REVERSAL HAD HULK LAUGHING FOR, LIKE, AN ENTIRE MINUTE.

-BRITTA’S PIZZA SONG/DANCE WAS APPARENTLY AD-LIBBED… ATTENTION EVERY ACTOR: BEING SELF-DEPRECIATING CAN GET YOU EVERYWHERE. THAT WAS AMAZING.

-AS WAS “SO YOU’RE SAYING HE WAS A PIZZA GUY.”

-AS WAS THE FIRST NORWEGIAN TROLL REVEAL

-AS WAS “GOOGLY EYES!?!?!”

-AS WAS THE CANDY CIGARETTE

-AS WAS THE REPEATED “EMOTIONAL” MUSIC CUE

-AS WAS THE ENTIRETY OF THE TIMELINE WHERE TROY GOT THE PIZZA

-AS WAS “IT FEELS FUN”

-AS WAS THE REALIZATION THE WORLD IS A TERRIBLE PLACE WITHOUT ABED

-AS WAS “LET HIM FINISH!”

-AS WAS “ENCARTA IT!”

-AS WAS “… OF YOU!”

-AS WAS GILLIAN JACOBS DELIVERY OF “EXACTLY! LIFE GOT DARK!”

-AS WAS THE FACT HULK + ABED ARE TOTALLY WATCHING INSPECTOR SPACETIME IN THE KICKER!

-THINGS FROM THE EVIL TIME-LINE SO NEED TO COME BACK.

-SOMETHING IN THIS EPISODE REMINDED HULK OF A MOMENT FROM LASER FART BUT HULK CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS.

-IN CASE YOU NEVER HAVE, WATCH DAN HARMON’S LASER FART.

THE FUCKING HILARIOUS PART IS THAT HULK FORGOT ABOUT THE “BASED ON” STINGER AND IT HAS STUFF TO DO WITH A RECENT HULK ARTICLE.

  1. This was the best episode of any comedy I have ever seen Everything about it was spectacular. The fact that Community gets less than 1/3 of the ratings of fucking big bang theory is just idiotic. If this show gets cancelled it will be the biggest travesty since Fox cancelled Firefly nine years ago.

  2. I’d like to thank HULK for adding another show to the list of Great Things I Need To Find/Watch/Catch-Up On. Discovering Doctor Who and Top Gear, and therefore all things BBC, earlier this year didn’t make this hard enough.
    To the Hulu and/or Netflix Mobile!

      HULK WILL SPEAK UP IF THERE’S ANYTHING HULK REALLY LIKED. A WEEKLY FEATURE NOT SO MUCH. AND IT JUST WON’T BE THE EVENT EPISODES. LIKE FOR EXAMPLE ONE OF HULK’S FAVORITE EPISODES IN THE SERIES WAS “MIXOLOGY” FROM TROY’S B-DAY LAST YEAR. IT WAS ONE OF THE SADDER EPISODES TOO.

    I hate sitcoms & only started watching this season based on your glowing recommendation. Granted, it was funny, but I was starting to question Hulk’s sanity (maybe too much gamma radiation..?).

    Seeing your follow up review this morning convinced me to give it another try. I laughed so hard. THANK YOU.

    I, too, welcome the return of the Evil Study Group. In the meantime, I’ll be pillaging my friend’s DVD collection for past episodes.

      YEAH, COMMUNITY HAS TO PACE OUT THE WAY THE DISH THE BEST EPISODE BECAUSE OFTEN THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE. HULK REALLY RECOMMEND GOING BACK TO BEGINNING AND GETTING TO REALLY KNOW THE CHARACTERS. THAT WAY THE “MORE TRADITIONAL” EPISODES COME OFF A LOT BETTER. BUT REALLY IF YOU JUST ARE LOOKING FOR A RUN OF WHAT YOU SAW IN THIS MOST RECENT CHECK OUT EPISODES LIKE “MODERN WARFARE” AND “CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN POULTRY”

    So good, and I see Abed getting more interested in alternate realities (2 United Nations) after being exposed to Prof. Spacetime. I’m sure this will come up more and I can’t wait.

    By the way, I am the guy who a while ago told you I thought Moffatt was jerking Dr. Who fans around. After the season finale I would argue I was right, though that does not make me happy.
