REVIEW: Community “Virtual Systems Analysis”

So I know it sounds strange that I write for a TV site and at this moment I don’t even own a TV. I watch most things through As a result you can see all the comments left by viewers. People love Community, but when the show doesn’t produce epic results like “Modern Warfare” and “Pillows and Blankets” on a weekly basis the fandom goes from devoted to despising the show. Like I said last week you have to embrace Community as a whole not as liking only one or two episodes a season. That my friends is Britta’ing.

So the episode opens up with the study group actually studying, wha?! I could not be the only one that forgot that their mutual class is Biology. The beginning of the season seems like ages ago.

Wow they are shipping the Troy and Britta thing hard. Broy? Tritta? I have a feeling this isn’t going the way I think it’s going to go, because it’s Community.

Breaking the 4th wall for a brief second Annie?

Duali-dean of Man. Seriously, this guy won an Oscar.

C’mon Craig get your life together! You have to go to the bank today.

To the Dreamatorium! Ever since they introduced it I’ve been waiting for this episode!

Abed, really the worst season ever. Sidenote: I really need to watch Dr. Who so I get these Inspector Spacetime references.

Annie being British is hilarious, sticky wicket.

Ha ha the waiter and his reasons for hating Die Hard.

I can’t wait to get back home to Abed. Seriously, you have to feel this way with your best friend.

Other people are in a Kleenex box, in Abed’s case that totally works.

Abed’s brain breaking scream is pretty fantastic if it weren’t so tragic.

Abed personifying everyone in the group just furthers the theory that this show is a brainchild of Abed and everyone is a figment of his imagination. You know a la St. Elsewhere.

Yes! Parodying hospital shows.

Because this is clearly how hospital co-workers behave.

Kissing in a dreamatorium, sexier in theory then practice. Lol. Gotta love how Abed portrays it though.

Troy and the truth serum, could not have given it to a better person. “I didn’t get Inception”!

Further down the rabbit hole we go makes me think of another amazing show: “Awake”.

I love Annie’s pointing out how Abed would’ve known about her and Jeff and Abed explains about Leonard in the bushes. Great because if this show made a lazy mistake like that we would all be unforgiving.

Surprise! A la Zoolander.

Annie as Abed I had a feeling it would come down to this. Cougar Town, pop culture, cool cool cool.

I KNEW Troy invents Dance Pants.

Hurting innocent unremarkables. Best line of the episode.

I have a feeling we will never explore the Dean’s really deep insightful conversation at the bank.

If there’s one thing you walk away with from this episode it’s that Troy and Abed in the morning is back! And Annie’s ideas for apartments is delightful.

NEVER unbunk the beds…

Overall I liked this episode of Community. In some ways it tries a little bit hard but I think since these last few episodes are “make it or break it” for the show it was pretty solid. Now you can go back and count how many times I mentioned Abed in this episode, or how many times I actually used “a la”. I’ll give it a Cool, cool. (And if you don’t know what number that’s out of why are you reading this review again)?

Cool cool cool. Not much to say except I've been obsessed with TV since I was a baby. Seriously my mom said I spent hours eating because Sesame Street would be on TV. I grew up a child of the nineties so like most kids from that time, my brain is mush and full of Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel and Saturday morning cartoons. Since this was way before the invention of Tivo/Dvrs I literally had to run to the TV and try and hog it from the family. Just a heads up I don't really like the typical review format so get used to some strangeness up ahead (in a good way, I hope)!Also, if you dare, you can check out more random thoughts at or I'm on the twitter @rakhEEnroLL
