Review - Community Season 1 Episode 11 The Politics of Human Sexuality

I have lots to do today (mostly watching TV :p) so the reviews will be on the short side.

Community is generally a juvenile show that pushes the boundaries of reality, but yesterday's episode stretched it a bit too far. The STD stuff, Pierce's escort, and Abed's extreme prowess in athletics kind of baffled me. I'm don't dislike Chevy Chase, but Pierce is just so off-putting, so an episode focusing on him probably wouldn't have ranked high on my list even if the story was decent.

Abed seems like he is something other than human. He can beat Troy at sports, remember all sorts of things, and elicit sympathy from his stare. That's the fun of his character, but I'm not sure what to expect of him anymore. If he is suddenly a sports god, the writers can just start writing anything for him, making him amazing at academics, or other activities.

The dialogue was great as always and made up for the story. Shirley's proclamation that Annie was a unicorn was priceless. Jeff changing Britta's telephone entry to her real name was superficial and made no sense since he was begging for her number in one of the earliest episodes.

Score: 8.7/10
