Community - Celebrity Pharmacology recap/review

And the show opens with Troy and Abed dressed as bumblebees. This show is so great. They're dressed up as bumblebees, along with Britta and Jeff as cool cats and Shirley as a crayon, because Annie is directing an anti-drug play. Pierce is playing the marijuana leaf. Obviously. We do love that the gang is supporting Annie in this effort, even if it's not usually their scene (Britta, Jeff). The dean shows up wearing a bumblebee outfit, leading Annie to ask if he wants to be in the play. Oh Annie, do you not watch your own show? Of course the dean has creepy plans that involve him dressing up.

Jeff discovers that Britta doesn't like flirting via text, which leads him to flirt for her. Unfortunately, he ends up sending some highly inappropriate texts to her nephew instead of the guy she's potentially interested in. This leads Jeff to give Britta's bra to her nephew in exchange for never telling anyone what he did.

Annie is having financial problems, since her parents cut her off for going to rehab. Over-reaction much? Your daughter is seeking help for a problem and you decide to not give her any financial support? Bad form, Annie's mom, but a hilarious picture of WASP reactions to issues (sweep them under the rug). Pierce follows her home (to her apartment above Dildopolis - ha) and decides to give her money. This leads to Pierce controlling Annie, which is exactly what she didn't want, and why she hasn't taken money from her parents. They work it out in the end, and we like Pierce a little more now. Their scenes do lead to some hilarious lines, including Annie calling Dildopolis a "marital aid store" and Pierce saying "you save your eggs for a rainy day" when Annie mentioned possibly selling her eggs for cash. Ultimately, Annie decides to get a job. Isn't she supposed to be smart? Getting a job is the most obvious response to not having money. It confused us that she would think about selling her eggs before she thought about getting a job. We get that it can be difficult to get one, but to not even think about it? Weird. We guess if you've never gotten one before, you might think it's harder than it is. However, she mentioned that she's had a job before, so we're still confused.

The kids seem to actually think Pierce is funny in the play, which is kind of unexpected. He goes off the deep end (which is less unexpected), with a clown wig and sparklers. The kids continue to laugh, and Pierce is drunk on the applause from the kids. The kids start throwing the "drug free baseballs" at the gang and it takes Chang to get the show back on point. He dressed up as drugs "after they stop being fun and start being crazy/turn on you." Chang goes to his batshit crazy place and gets beaten up by the kids. It's pretty awesome. Apparently, he's actually part of the group now. Shirley was ignoring Chang for a while, and he was trying to get her attention because she might be carrying his child. At the end of the episode, Shirley acknowledged him. We really hope the baby is Chang's. It will make the show interesting. HA.

If you've watched this show before, the episode is a lot better than this recap made it seem. There were a lot of funny lines and moments that we can't mention, due to time and length-of-recap restrictions. If you want it all, watch it on hulu. It was sweet, funny, and slightly insane - just how we like our Community. One of the best "drug" episodes of a comedy that we have seen.

Episode Grade: A-
