Synopsis:

Spoiler:
When Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) begins checking class schedules, he discovers that Jeff (Joel McHale) has listed a class that doesn't exist. Just when it appears Jeff will be caught in a lie, the mysterious "Professor Professorson" (Kevin Corrigan "The Departed") emerges from the shadows to confirm that Jeff has been taking his class, "Conspiracy Theories in U.S. History," at night school. When Jeff later admits to Annie (Alison Brie) that he's never seen Professor Professorson in his life, the two decide to find out who the professor really is. Meanwhile, Abed (Danny Pudi) and Troy (Donald Glover) are busy building the most elaborate blanket fort that Greendale Community College has ever seen.

This episode sounds great. I can't see them topping last week but Community has been on fire lately so I'm sure we'll get a good one.

This was probably one of the most ridiculous, nonsensical episodes of Community yet, but I loved every minute of it. The whole conspiracy story was so absurd, but it was brilliant. Everyone betraying each other and trying to teach the other a lesson. I loved how Jeff still tried to get the credit at the end.

The blanket fort was nowhere near as good as the conspiracy plot, but it was still fun. I like how they said they were too big for it and the solution was to just make it taller. Britta's cameo was hilarious.

The car "explosion" was one of the funniest things ever!

I love how Jeff thought so little of the school that he named his made-up professor Professor Professorson.

And the fact that Annie sent it to the lab for analysis.

Yeah, a pretty good episode. The guy from Grounded for Life was pretty funny.

Was the Britta in the fort shot a Eyes Wide Shut reference? The music sounded like it.

Loved this episode and the gunshot scenes were hilarious. The blanket fort communities were also funny.

You could see that underwhelming "explosion" coming a mile away and yet it was still funny.

So fucking awesome. I was nonstop smiling the entire episode. Even the stuff that wasn't hilarious was still nothing short of funny and fun. The escalating betrayal shootout was amazing.

Fact: In 100 percent of all fake gun-related shootings, the victim is always the one with the fake gun.

That was amazingly great. I feel like Dan Harmon is in my brain, writing exactly what I need to help me forget how much I miss Arrested Development.

This episode was non-stop awesome. Loved the chase scene through blanket-town.

My favorite part as well. I wish it had been the focus of the show. Kind of like the tv show "The Starlost", where each area of the space ship had different groups of people and the main characters would travel from area to area trying to reach the bridge of the ship. Oddly enough Joel McHale looks a lot like Keir Dullea and Annie looks like Gay Rowan.

I'm pretty sure building a blanket fort was on Abed's to do list in Robo-vision.

Yeah, it was in the rowboat cop ep. I think write a screenplay (with Troy ?) was on there too.
