Community "Competitive Ecology": AKA: Poor Todd

Its official Chang has gone completely bonkers. We opened to find him living in the boiler room with his "girlfriend" a mannequin leg he has named Veronica. I'll admit to plenty of giggles over the film noir style of his storyline, because I'm a sucker for that kinda stuff, add in Dean Pelton's own inner monologue about firefighters and dalmatians and it was by far my favorite moments in the episode.

 Last night was one of those episodes that reminds us, that even though we have grown to love them, are favorite study group is made up of some pretty awful people. "The Mean Clique" as Professor Kane called them. Poor newbie Todd, had to deal with the brunt of their awfulness. But as always the discourse brings the group together, clearly the problem wasn't with them, it was with Todd.

To be honest, I think it would have been a bit more interesting of an episode if the group HAD to pair up with their original "nobody" partners. Not exactly sure how that would have gone down, but it would have been interesting to see them having to relate to someone other than each other.

So "Competitive Ecology" may not have been my favorite episode, but there was still plenty of laughter, which is why Community is still one of my favorite shows.

  1. I hated that episode. They were absolutely terrible to a man who did nothing to them and on the contrary was friendly, upright, honourable and good.
