Okay class, today we’re going to be discussing Season 5, episode 2 of Community entitled “Introduction to Teaching.” And…let’s begin!

Episode 2 is directed by Jay Chandrasekhar and written by Dan Harmon along with, once again, an ass-load more people. This episode, we see Jeff make the difficult transition into his new role as a teacher at Greendale. This was briefly established in the first episode; the Dean offered Jeff a teaching position, after Jeff went off on him about what a bad Dean he was, and Jeff agreed to help the Dean fix Greendale. Jeff finds a mentor in a member of the veteran faculty, Professor Buzz Hickey (Jonathan Banks). This dude is hilarious. He was in previous episodes and he’s fan-fucking-tastic.

The highlight of this episode is clearly Abed participating in a film class that’s analyzing the roles of Nicolas Cage. Abed becomes obsessed with discovering if Cage is in fact a good or a bad actor. He consequently goes off the deep end. But man, is Abed’s Cage impression amaze-balls.

9.0

  • Funny as hell
  • Abed goes nuts trying to figure out if Nicholas Cage is a good or bad actor.
  • Professor Buzz Hickey is hilarious.
  • Needs more Abed… as always.
  • Far too little Brie boob

Is it Good?

A really funny episode, and all the boring introductory crap is out of the way, so this train-keeps a rollin’, and hopefully will all night loooong. Or day. Or…whenever the Hell you watch it.

On a serious note, when will we get a show that’s just Abed? I’d watch the shit out of that.

I give it an A-.
