Community ‘Advanced Gay’ Review
Two words: Black Hitler.
Yes, this episode of Community featured a black hitler (I couldn’t find a picture so you’ll just have to watch the episode). Seriously. Now, most shows would just have something as crazy as that and call it a day with no other thought put into the rest of the episode jokes. Well, Community isn’t most shows. It is THE best show on TV and everyone really needs to watch it.
From the opening minutes harkening back to Troy’s gift of being a master plumber, this episode fired on all cylinders. After a slew of hilarious gay jokes, Pierce decides to host a ‘Gay Bash’ to promote Hawthorne Wipes. This leads to Pierce’s dad entering the picture and he is a million times worse than Pierce when it comes to racism. His toupee is enough to laugh throughout the episode. I won’t ruin the ending but they do something only Community could do right.
As for the other story this week, John Goodman is back as the Vice Dean. He tries to recruit Troy to air conditioning repair by kidnapping him. He creates a scene that is so unbelievable, that no one would believe that he was kidnapped if he tried to explain. Thus begins an astronaut making a panini and black hitler.
When black hitler was introduced, one of the greatest Community moments had happened and I am much better off for experiencing it.
There are also some great other moments between Jeff and Britta helping to flesh out Jeff’s daddy issues and Britta helps to show that she’s actually a good psychologist. While Shirley and Annie do take a back seat, they do get their jokes in the episode as well but this was a Troy, Pierce and Jeff episode.
I do have to mention that I don’t think Ken Jeong should be on this show. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a great actor but he just doesn’t fit in the show anymore. He needs to be written out because he is the weakest character on the show and t showed in the last episode and this episode where he just shows up in the last few minutes and has little to say.
Lastly, ‘the question isn’t how old we are but when old we are’.
