Review - Community Season 1 Episode 14 Interpretive Dance

 Again, tons of shows to review, and I also want to have a few quick posts on Caprica and Spartacus: Blood and Sand, so I don't have time for longer reviews.

Community embraces everything weird and doesn't look back. While the setting of a community college may be realistic enough, there has been an increasing presence of outrageous and ludicrous events based on something real. It's goofy, funny, and it works.

The story was incredibly strong in this episode and proved that episodes don't need to be filled with countless gags to be good (take a hint TBBT!). Jeff is becoming a better person, and he's dating Professor Slater (Lauren Stamile). Dean Pelton has a problem with that and through the course of signing paperwork, they become closer, and Jeff actually considers Slater his girlfriend.

Britta and Troy discover that the other is taking dance classes, and Britta wants to tell the rest of the group, but Troy backs out before Britta invites everyone to a recital. During the crazy dance, Britta panics, but Troy comes in to save the day.

On the relationship side of things, Britta gets upset on stage when she sees Jeff and Professor Slater holding hands, and Annie gets upset at the though Troy and Britta could be together. It's not original and plays up the sexual tension angle seen on most shows, but the great cast and solid stories makes Community not the typical sitcom.

Score: 9.3/10
