COMMUNITY “Home Economics” Review Episode 8


What did you think of tonight’s episode of Community ‘Home Economics’? I knew before the show even started that it was going to be hard for Community to surpass last week’s brilliant Halloween episode. I mean, I am still recovering from Abed’s amazing Batman impression.

Even though I was right, it was still a pretty decent episode. Here’s a question though: what community college has dorms? It seems like they are trying to incorporate too many features of a university into this Community college. Ice cream bars, concerts in the quad, dorm rooms – these things don’t normally exist in Community college.

I also didn’t like seeing Jeff down and out in ‘Home Economics’. I like how his character normally seems to be the one that has it together. Seeing him vulnerable and the one that needed to ask help from Abed made me feel kind of uncomfortable. I loved the part where Abed compared him to Goldie Hawn in Overboard. I think we can all agree that Abed is probably the best character on the show.

Annie provided some nice cringy moments with Troy. At the beginning of the show I was feeling bad for Annie but by the end she making me angry. Surely telling someone you like them is easier than pretending to have appendicitis or crashing a date in a hospital gown?

I enjoyed the part with Pierce and the band. Vaughn plays the role of d-bag very well. It also provided my favorite quotes of the night:

‘Pierce you’re a B’
‘Are you trying to Garfunkel me’?

Lastly, there is Britta. I still can’t figure this character out. I can understand why she doesn’t want to date Jeff, but if she’s so smart, why can’t she get over a jerk like Vaughn? I wonder if she’ll ever end up with Jeff? Personally, I’d rather see Annie and Troy get together over Jeff and Britta. What do you think?
