Synopsis:

Spoiler:
As everyone settles on their spring semester electives, Troy (Donald Glover) and Britta (Gillian Jacobs) explore the fundamentals of acting, while Abed (Danny Pudi) tackles an advanced study of 1980s sitcom "Who's The Boss?" with a professor who has written a book on the topic (Stephen Tobolowsky "Glee"). Meanwhile, Pierce (Chevy Chase) and Jeff (Joel McHale) enjoy a wine tasting class, where Pierce meets "Wu Mei" (Michelle Krusiec "Dirty Sexy Money") a mysterious Chinese woman who sweeps Pierce off his feet. Suspicious, Jeff vows to find out what'd going on with Wu Mei and why she would agree to marry Pierce so quickly.



Episode 20 of 24

Annie: "Don't take it. I dropped it after the class on set-ups. The Professor was so old."
*Jeff and Pierce wait for the punchline*

The return of Kevin Corrigan as Professor Garrity.

Troy: "It seems like only yesterday Abed and I dined and dashed from this place." (funny considering that episode aired like 3 weeks ago)

Troy: "Yeah, about that. I wasn't so much molested as I was...making it up."

Troy: My uncle never stuck his finger in my plop-plop."
*Group Gasps*
Troy: "I know, I'm bummed about it too."

Loved the suicide fake-out ending for the professor after Abed conclusively proved Angela was the boss.

---

Not the best episode of the season, but still decent. It's pretty impressive that they made a storyline about Troy pretending to have been molested funny.

Loved this episode, and on top of that it is a great introduction to the series. Everybody gets some great moments. The only thing was that Annie didn't have much to do later in the ep, but I loved Sammy Jankis from Memento, and Professor Professorson's return.

The label on Pierce's wine says "la tua diventa piu bello con ogni bottiglia", which Google Translate says means "your becomes more beautiful with every bottle". I guess that's "YOU become more beautiful with every bottle". Less funny than I'd hoped.

Troy was the best in this episode. I loved his "molestation victim" portrayal in the drama class.

Good to see Professor Professorson again. Like how this show keeps building its supporting cast.

When Brita took off her jacket in acting class and Troy just stopped, you could almost see the gears turning in his brain.

The best line was when Jeff said Pierce wouldn't try the Pinot Noir because it was French for black penis!

Shirley: "They've got a class on how to write jokes."
Annie: "Don't take that. I dropped it after the lecture about setups. The professor is so old..."
*silence*

Acting coach: "Story doesn't matter here."

Corrigan is pretty much gold in whatever he's in. He pretty much stole the Grounded for Life series and had a great minor role in Buffalo 66.

With Professor Professorson's return, I just need to link to this New Pornographers video that features him in a small, but hilarious role. John Oliver and Donald Glover also appear (and a whole bunch of other random celebs)
