The 2001 homage was great. Oh, and Jeff sporting a Bell & Ross

It sickens me - SICKENS ME!!! - that it took 22 posts for someone to mention this!!! I've never wanted a 60 inch plasma more than at that particular moment.

No screenshots either huh? Since when did DVDTalk become a haven for gay homosexuals?

Wouldn't a gay homosexual be a straight person?

It looks like Feb 2001 by my count.

The only thing that didn't work for me was Abed's storyline. Not that the British show wasn't funny, but I just don't buy that Abed, of all people, wouldn't know that Cougartown was adapted from a UK series. Or that UK shows tend to be ridiculously short. Also kind of hard to believe he wouldn't have seen Doctor Who (except for the episodes that were erased).

Also, what was with Pierce and Jeff having their "you lied about bribing him" conversation in full view of the other members of the group? Was that just awkward blocking or was it supposed to be an unexpected reveal? Either way, it just seemed a little off.

So I'm only giving this episode an "A". If they want the "+" they'll have to earn it.

To be fair, I'm pretty sure even the people on Cougar Town themselves didn't know they were adapted from a UK series.

Horrible ratings Down 23% from last year.
Another reason to hate '2 Broke Girls'

What does "Two Broke Girls" have to do with it? It aired opposite "The Big Bang Theory" on CBS which got great ratings. Shouldn't you hate that show instead?

Because he hates 2 Broke Girls and because it got really high ratings, it's probably going to get a full season and get renewed for a 2nd, while Community will continue to be labeled a "bubble" show until May.

I wasn't referring to what airs opposite, but the love for crappy sitcoms in general. It's just frustrating (like always) to see quality shows like Community and Parks & Rec getting worse and worse ratings while crap like Broke, BBT etc. get's great ratings.

Or what DJariya said
I actually don't hate "2 Broke Girls", I just dislike it.

This episode felt pretty cold to me. As already mentioned, Abed's storyline didn't make any sense.

This isn't math or english where two negatives make a positive Cum. This is the real world where a gay homosexual = Perez Hilton or Superfro!

It's true. I remember. I got a call from Johnny DVDTalk and he said "Madcougar, I need you to become a member of my fine forum because Superfro has gayed it up so much, that I think I have AIDS by association!"

I said "Johnny DVDTalk, you have my word that I'll man up your super gay forum with everything I got!"

Then we chestbumped and went out to get a McRib.

"I know who Sean Penn is! I've seen Milk!"

And as already mentioned, the 2001 parody was great.

Meh episode. Agreed that it made no sense that Abed didn't know those details.

I've bitched about it last season, and I'm doing it again since the writers keep repeating themselves... it feels like every second episode is about someone leaving the group and/or trying to get back into the group. Really... who fucking cares?
