All I want is for Danny Pudi to do more physical comedy. Because him crawling on a desk? That was glorious.

It harkened back to when Abed decided to impersonate a vampire to pick up a woman, and walked around the cafeteria hissing.

If they want to replace Troy with anybody, they should find a way to bring in Britanick. They already worked with Daniel Pudi and it was pretty awesome. Also, their style would be perfect for Community.

I want them to being back Vaughn and his tiny nipples.

Something I didn't realize about the Cooperative Polygraphy episode - who owns https://www.prenatalpatriots.org

It turns out that Sony Pictures does.

WHOIS info right here: http://whois.net/whois/prenatalpatriots.org

Probably smart to register that pre-emptively, so that a fan couldn't register it right when the episode airs.

However, if they don't make a prenatal army soon, I will be sorely disappointed. Fetuses, attack!

I also really liked it - it was the little, surreal things that made it seem like Community to me.

Like the Custodians throwing a fancy high-class party in Greendale's basement, complete with a Woodworking Original. The Parking Czar having framed posters of parking lots and the history of parking passes on the wall behind him. Abed and the Deaf Lady using actual sign language, even when Abed signed the wrong things ("Sandals"). The Dean having fajitas in his office as if in a Mexican restaurant, complete with salt rimmed margaritas. Annie's hand collapsing through the wall, and a sparrow flying out of it, madly chirping. Chang's breakdown.

I didn't even recognize any of the guest stars except for Nathan Fillon, and I still enjoyed it.

Yes. Community is back.

You didn't recognize Robert Patrick, of all people?

Nope. I sort of live in a media bubble; most of the stuff I watch is via Netflix, and then it's things like train dramas from Uruguay. And I don't have, nor really want to get, anything more than basic cable. So, while I've seen Firefly a zillion times, most of the stuff just sails above my head. Mainly due to lack of interest and/or time.

That's some bubble if it excludes Terminator 2: Judgement Day and The X-Files.

It does.

I saw T2:JD a long time ago, but only once. As for The X-Files, it was when I was in college, and didn't have a TV at all. I've seen a few episodes since then, but not since this millennium. Even if I saw them recently, I probably would have still not recognized the guy. I am the anti-Abed.

I think that it's a credit to the showrunners that they can make something that's fun to watch, even if you don't know the Guest Stars. For a while, I even thought that Luis Guzmán was a fictional character.

D&D is as fun as the DM and players make it. This varies.

This episode was good but it seemed to really fly by. I do think I'll use the "you'd better think to not use fire on this old bridge" trap in my next D&D session this week.

Please make Crouton the name of an NPC.

I've been in RPG campaigns that were a blast, because the Game Master (we were playing Shadowrun at the time) allowed for the players to be as surreal and silly as they wanted to be. Hence, I played Govan, the Ninja Librarian.

I've also had Game Masters take it so seriously that he treated it like a method acting course. Which made it extremely dull extremely quickly.

We may have Moved On, but I wanted to comment on the AD&D episodes.

Like the mast majority of you, I really think that the first one was a lot better. Not only because Neil's stakes were higher, but because each player's personality shone through.

Chang showed up in wildly inappropriate makeup and introduced his character in a rap.

Shirley was her passive-aggressive self.

Troy didn't quite 'get' what was going on, and wanted to attack monsters with his Additional Notes.

Britta got distracted by the tragic plight of the gnomes, and wanted the rest of the group to shift their priorities to help them.

Annie channeled her character's unique characteristics, and clinically solved the problem of how to get pegasi with her enormous penis and some really awesome sex.

Jeff at first was detached and sarcastic, but when he got emotionally involved, he became the leader.

Pierce just wanted to gently caress poo poo up in the most chaotically random way possible - and unwittingly became one of the heroes in rescuing Neil. "I rub the sword on my balls."

And Abed held it all together with a mix of vivid imagination, robotic demeanor, and the ability to remain impartial. "You have," *rolls die* "successfully rubbed the sword against your balls."

I've taken it that Abed no longer has his anchor/mediator/social skills coach/best friend Troy, so he's flailing a bit and possibly acting out. He has been a bit more angry in the last few episodes. He just needs to find some footing again.

The average Community College student attends school for five to seven years!

And that's one of the beauties of Community College. I go to one, and I squeeze in classes in between short IT contracting stints. I'm going to see if I can take the next year off and just plow through the rest of the classes I want to take, but it still may be scattered around a bit, depending on the school schedule and what jobs I come up with.

Only thing I have to watch out for is my math score; I'm in a STEM program, and if my math scores expire, I'm locked out of the higher level classes.
