Jeff: "Everyone, look alive. Good enough Leonard."

Can't wait for this episode. I still wish they would have aired it right after last week's episode, but I understand why they didn't.

Held off on watching this last week so I could make tonight a DOUBLE-FEATURE.

Because Community is one of their lowest-rated shows? They asked for it to be an hour. NBC refused. Yet, they'll give 30 Rock and The Office as many hour-longs as they want.

Too bad, you'd figure that with nothing important going on that 8:30 slot they would have done it. Not to mention that an hour long episode would bring in some new viewers. Guess it's not the worst thing to spread it over two weeks though because the cliffhanger ending gives us something to look forward to for a week.

This has been the longest week of my life. With any other show, I'd be afraid it won't live up to the hype. But not with Harmon and crew.

Unfortunately for me, I'm not going to be able to watch it live this week, as I have other plans.

Fortunately for the rest of you, that means I have to wait until tomorrow and that my post probably won't be a running tally of all the funny lines and sight gags, as well as my lengthy comments and observations.

Looks like I lied, lol. My friends are running late! Five minutes in and I'm dying. Nice to see them switch from a Western to Star Wars so seamlessly and unexpectedly.

Troy: "And they're an unstoppable jugglenaut."
Abed: "Juggernaut."
Troy: "Juggernaut."

Magnitude: "First off, Pop Pop...."

Abed: "It looks like we're switching from a Western motif to a Star Wars serial."
Group: "Ugh."
Abed: "I know, I wish we had done it sooner too."

Troy: "Dammit Shirley, forget about your newborn baby and think about the people that need you."

Jeff: "For Greendale on three. One...Two..."
Troy: "Jeff, every second counts. For Greendale on two. One..."
Britta: "For Greendale!"

Troy trying to figure out what Magnitude was going to say was great.

Troy: "Operation: Troy's Awesome Plan is living up to its name."
Troy: Commence Operation: Troy's Awesome Leadership Is Never In Doubt."

In hindsight, the City College uniforms are so obviously references to Stormtroopers; it was easy to miss since we were operating under the pretense that the second half was going to be a Western as well.

Leonard: "I've been in a few real wars, and this one is actually terrifying."

Troy's death was great. Loved the paint raining down from the sky. One of the reasons I think these episodes worked so well is they gave us more than just shooting with regular guns.

The action in this one was great. Lots of good shootouts, especially Troy, Abed, and Annie leaving the study room and then Shirley and Britta driving and shooting at the same time.

Loved how Pierce used a fake heart attack again and saved the day.

Abed: "Too risky. Sequels are almost always disappointing."

Wow, crazy revelation that Pierce has been coming to Greendale for twelve years. It really makes you feel sorry for the character, despite his shortcomings. I can't believe Pierce actually left the group and that they're going to end it like that. Really nice twist to the show and something I didn't see something; should make for an interesting dynamic next year. It's great that we all assumed Pierce would save the day and be accepted back into the group, which he did and was, but Community once again defied our expectations and ended in a way we hadn't expected before. Well done Community, well done.

(I'm so glad my friends were running late tonight, lol)

The Janitor at the end was the perfect wya to end this episode. I can't stop laughing at his reaction to the paintball tournament and that the show actually acknowledges how long it will take to clean it all up.

Is he really gone, though? I haven't heard anything about Chase not coming back for a third season.

I thought I saw her!

Damn what a good season finale. It was nice, yet sad, to learn about Pierce being there for 12 years and having no friends there. Already looking forward to season 3 in September!

Re: Cougar Town, it was mentioned in a thread somewhere already. Liked seeing that they both had paint on them though.

Yep.

I might have liked this one more than last week's.

Yeah, I dug the ending with the janitor... excellent. Lots of funny in this episode, especially liked Magnitude's "death" scene.

I'm sure Chevy will be back. This is just the show's notion of a cliffhanger.

Pretty good season, overall. I wouldn't say it was necessarily any better than last season, but this show continues to be the high point of funny/clever of anything on right now.

What was the crowd chanting after Pierce saved the day?

And a Star Wars theme without Annie or Britta as Slave Leia? I do not approve.
