Community -- "Basic Genealogy" -- 3/11/10



Spoiler:
The study group's parents show up to Greendale for family day at the college and Jeff commits to helping Pierce connect with his step daughter Amber. The situation gets crazy when Amber's attraction to Jeff surfaces.

Particularly funny with Iqbal Theba guest starring again.

Good episode overall, liked it better than last week's which I felt was a bit of a letdown.

Chang and his brother were awesome. The swastika thing was obvious from when Pierce started drawing, but the "resolution" was great.

Brita must have never seen the miniseries The Jacksons: An American Dream

Senor Chang and his brother were good

This show is delivering big time. Britta and grandma and Troy, hilarious stuff. Even Katherine McPhee surprised me with her turn in this episode.

I remember those days well. I remember having to go out and find a switch; and it couldn't be a dried up dead twig that was on the ground, We had to pull one off the tree where you could still see green on the inside.

I know that some mentioned Britta's eye in previous posts, and I noticed something about Jeff that is very distracting to me. When most people make facial expressions, their forehead makes about 4 wrinkles. Whenever Jeff makes an expression, his forehead wrinkles about 10 times over. It looks like that character from Star Trek The Next Generation.

The insanity of the whipping scene with Britta, Troy and Grandma was hilarious.

Alison Brie's looking hotter with each episode. She really didn't have much to do this episode.

I noticed it as well, but it's not nearly as distracting as his hair. I never knew what he looked like before this show because this show is the first time I've even heard of him. But I suspected he's got hair plugs because his hair doesn't look natural. Did some googling and going by how he looked before this show you can see that he's definitely had some hair work done.

How come we couldn't see Britta's butt after she pulled her pants off? I'm sure this is something the audience would have welcomed.

I think that McPhee looked much better before with long dark hair. This new look isn't doing it for me.

Probably one of my least favorite episodes. I think that the strength of the show is when the characters interact with each other, with maybe one outsider. Too many offshoots in this episode for my liking.

I'm glad the show has been renewed. It's really grown on me.

And no, Chevy didn't look happy to hear the good news. What's up with that?

I had a...different...reaction to that scene.

And I agree about Katherine McPhee. The girl can act -- who knew?

I thought McPhee looked great as a blonde. She had a Claire Danes vibe going that i liked A LOT.

I think Chevy was maybe still processing the "fake bad news" aspect of how they were told. He is old, after all.

Yeah she looked kind of weird like this.

Loved the episode though.

Chevy probably wanted one season under his belt, enough to get his "name" back out there, and then move on. Something tells me he's the one member of the cast that just doesn't gel with everyone else.

Ha. I didn't realize that was McPhee. I thought that was Samaire Armstrong.
