Community Breaks Into Song: All I Want For Christmas Is More Greendale

Originally, I was going to write every single blurb in first person and take credit for all of the pieces, but that would have been unnecessarily confusing. I am Gillian Jacobs.

This post has no spoilers because I avoided spoilers this week to make tonight more special, I am clueless to the premise and all I know that christmas,singing and Taran Kallim are involved. being a spoiler virgin in this world is not easy specially to an spoiler addict, between the temptations of NBC’s recklessly  too revealing spoiler videos (so I am told) and people going crazy on Tumblr I felt all alone and I managed to survive.

This week 8/7c on NBC is the last Community episode of 2011 to be replaced by 30 Rock mid-season and the show is promised to be back “sometime” in the spring . but fear not the show is still being written and filmed, according to @danharmon’s twitter account they are up to writing 315 and NBC has to air all 22 episodes….whenever that time is I will be there.

Community has a great history when it comes to Christmas episodes,”Comparative Religion” and Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas are absolute masterpieces so if anything in my cloud of ignorance I know for a fact the episode will be brilliant. The cast will sing original songs that are bound to be hilarious and catchy because again history shows how important music is to a show like Community.

To maintain honesty i haven’t ead this I had to copy it blindly from EW because I am as I said trying to avoid spoilers :

When Greendale’s glee club is shut down for copyright infringement before their holiday show, the study group is targeted as their replacement, one by one succumbing to the finger-snapping spirit that spreads like some irony-obliterating virus. The original songs are downright hilarious — especially Alison Brie’s breathy-sexpot baby-talking jingle — and there are some choice broadsides at the Fox series, like jokes about the blatant MacGuffinism of regionals and Jeff’s observation that ”not liking glee club doesn’t make us bullies, and implying that is reverse bullying.

what I can guarantee is some great fun and amazing costumes I don’t know beyond that.  Though I don’t celebrate the holiday I’ve always had an appreciation for the magic of the occasion, My Christmas wish is that this episode explodes in ratings to show how much love and support people have for this masterpiece of a show. REMEMBER :8/7c tonight on NBC 

I CAN”T WAIT FOR “Regional Holiday Music” Community’s we’ll be back soon sign off.

take the poll and yes the lack of options is intentional

Community “Documentary Filmmaking Redux” :Some Flies Are Too Awesome For The Wall

This episode couldn’t have come at  a better time when all the fans are freaking out about NBC rescheduling of Community.This week’s episode reminds us of why we love Community so much, because it is special and we feel special for watching as if we are all a part of a secret club or as Jeff says in the pilot ” you’ve just stopped being a study group(audience) you’ve become something unstoppable, I hereby pronounce you a Community ” and that is what we the fans are…A Community

This week we got to see all our Greendale favorites back  fat Neil,magnitude,Leonard and others.Abed’s camera captures all the story on film and what better person to have an insight than Abed. The episode opens with a dusty commercial from the early 90s that includes Chuck’s Ryan McPartlin and  the dean was asked to update and he employs the help of the study group including a reluctant Jeff who’s blackmailed to agree with what I don’t know because it seems like it is something that the study group knows about.

Abed’s tagging (i don’t know what it’s called when someone’s name is written under their footage  in a documentary) Pierce Hawthorne: Local Curmudgeon,Troy Barns:Best Friend,Jeff Winger : Former Lawyer,Britta:  Anarchist Cat Owner (she will love that), Luis Guzman:president of the ceramics club 1993 ,Leonard: Up and Comer,Shirley Bennett :Moral Compass, Annie Edison: script supervisor( Abed never messes with Annie does he?!) Ben Chang: self proclaimed under-study .

Annie is the script supervisor and as she is describing her job to Abed’s camera please notice the writing on the board behind her where allscheduling is happening in  UPPER CASE , this was a detail i loved then again Community is in the details. Jeff is Dean Pelton and to he tries his best to sabotage the commercial by giving a hilarious impression of Dean Pelton while dressed in a bald cap in front of the Luis Guzman statue (how the mainstream audience don’t eat this up is beyond me!) . Troy and Britta are playing diverse students in Greendale and let me stop here and note though I had my doubts in the begining I am loving those Troy and Britta’s awkward crush on each other, who would’ve though you’ll find Britta in the midst of something cute .Pierce is fighting with well..himself as he demands the start treatment…is this a portrayal of what working with Chevy Chase is like?

Jeff’s impression in front of the Luis Guzman statue and his call to his lawyers warning them of the illegal use of Luis Guzman’s image backfires as Guzman calls the dean to appear in his commercial…things go downhill from there.the dean decides to rewrite the script  and as Abed points out the dean’s perfectionism is what will cause his downfall.As time passes the commercial deviates from its purpose and becomes and experimental art movie that has no point and the actors are placed in a psychological terror as they try to comply with the deans demands. the setting of shooting in the school made me feels as if we are backstage on the Community set  as the creator Dan Harmon strives for the best and driving himself and everyone else insane( especially if he’s working on a themed episode), the scripts keep changing while shooting and the suits keep calling because they are behind schedule and over budget, but the difference here is that the dean comes up with idiocy but Abed the true filmmaker is the one that strikes gold .The Dean’s insanity is coddled by Annie’s strive to be a teacher’s pet, she defends him aggressively and refuses to acknowledge his insanity, loved the scene where he hands her an orange and says “scene four”.

 

Jeff on the other hand is caught in this insane spiral with everybody else as he is now Dean Pelton, he’s a method actor now and is in his heart a bald man with bald friends “Lights…camera..DEAN” . Jeff’s psychological state is more fragile than ever, he and Annie share that, they are always the fastest ones to snap and crack under pressure of the trivial but when the going gets tough, they are there to take charge. The one who ends the madness though is Britta as she puts a stop to the commercial and demands that the Dean let them go in a great setting of smoke that reminded me of season one The Vampire Diaries…making things intense,.The Dean is left with only his thoughts and Abed’s camera.

Luis Guzman shows up to post-apocalyptic Greendale (boy that show really likes to trash the school) , we haven’t seen the outside campus of Greendale for a while,it is good to remember that there is sun out there.Luis Guzman soon recognizes what’s wrong with the Dean’s vision; the Dean thinks he’s too good for a school full of nitwits and not so many students and he’s ashamed of it. because when you have something special that is rare and precious like a great school or a genre-bending TV show with an amazing cast and crew you should recognize that it is miracle  to have that all in one place and you should appreciate it instead of trying to change it appreciate it foe what it is. Luis Guzman says to Dean pelton “This is a special school, you don’t deserve to be here” and as he says that a flyer behind him reads “THE SAFE WAY IS THE BEST WAY” I love that about community and it’s amazing art department. NBC chose the safe way and embraced it’s fear of staying number 4, it thinks it is too good for a low rated show …..Alas

As sad music plays the study group watches a montage of a naked Dean Pelton (Notice the Jeff Winger underwear from the pool table episode in season one),the Dean is covered in the ash of his burnt university degree, Abed points out that story telling is the filmmaker’s choice and sometimes happiness can be found in sadness. On that note the study group horrified by the above mentioned montage decide to embrace dean Pelton and surprisingly Jeff is the one who invites him in as my favorite music from the show plays, I call when Jeff kissed Annie music because I don’t know if it has a name, I was told by a fellow community fan that it is called “Greendale is where I belong” love that music.

This episode was all heart, a kiss from the cast and crew of Community to their fans and a showcase of Jim Rash’s talents, thank you Megan Ganz ( the episode’s writer) for always delivering the best and for loving Community as much as we do. When this episode was written I am not sure how much the writers knew about the rescheduling and I might be reading too much into thing but hey it’s my blog… But seriously how can so much heart and dedication be overlooked? a special nod to the brilliant Joe Russo who directed the episode…my hero

Community is where I belong….

All New Community Greendale gets more exposure: why you as a human being must watch

in the midst of all the community rescheduling madness let’s put all the frustration aside and take the time to rejoice in tonight’s all new Community 7/8c  on NBC. In this episode entitled “Documentary Filmmaking :Redux”  Dean Pelton directs everyonr in a commercial fopr Greendale and the power from being behind the camera goes to his head: When the school board asks Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) to make a new commercial for the school, he enlists the study group to star in his production. As he gets swept away with the project, more of the student body is pulled into the fray, including Magnitude (Luke Youngblood), Fat Neil (Charley Koontz), Garrett (Erik Charles Nielsen), Leonard (Richard Erdman), Star-Burns (Dino Stamatopoulos) and even Greendale alum and genuine celebrity, Luis Guzman (“How to Make it in America”). Meanwhile, Abed (Danny Pudi) films all the activities for a documentary. If I had done my homework right it is possible that in this episode Annie and Jeff pick up on the Troy/Britta chemistry and they do not like it one bit.How does dean Pelton blackmail the study group into participating? the cast is teasing that this episode will be Jim Rash’s (Dean Pelton) Emmy submission. tune in and remember to watch it live , DVR it or buy it on itunes, itunes sales helps shows to stay on the air

Community “Competitive Ecology”: The Dangers Of Validation

If this review sucks it is Todd’s fault…..Stupid Todd

This week Community’s episode came with very little expectation since it is 304 not 303 which was supposed to be Abed and Troy’s house-warming party an episode I was super psyched to watch . I was pleasantly surprised since I wasn’t that excited to have a Chang-Centric episode. I think Ken Jong is at his best when presented in small insane doses but this episode proved how wrong I am.

This is how it is done bitches! the episode was absolutely coherent, both storylines of Chang and the study group were equally engaging and interesting. after a long hilarious speech from professor Kane about the simplicity and complexity of the present day Legos, The study group has to do a terrarium project and are pair with strangers which sparked something I never thought of before, they never really hang out with anyone else other that each other and they don’t really want to. I prepared for they story and what was coming: the study group will team up with the strangers and hate every minute of it….WRONG after asking Professor Kane, The only sane human being on campus, they are allowed to team up with each other, cut into the break ups scene each one breaking up with their “stranger” partner each breakup to fit each character…as audience we are back to the comfort zone with the group teaming up in pairs leaving Pierce alone with Todd the victim in this mess.

The group pairs up in the most expected way possible; Jeff and Annie, Abed and Troy,Britta and Shirley and Pierce and Todd. well Todd wasn’t exactly expected …then we think we know where the story is going to go Jeff and Annie have nice moment and a fight as usual, Troy and Abed have a weird amazing adventure, Britta and Shirley bicker a little then Shirley teaches Britta how to act like a normal human being and so on…WRONG those perfect pairs don’t work well together so the group works really well as a group but as pairs on a mission there are problems, Annie is frustrated by Jeff’s distraction, Troy and Abed have nothing to talk about since they are together all the time,Britta is annoyed by  Shirley (I hate it when people talk about their babies too ).

Britta and Troy meet outside in what seems as a romantic encounter only to discover they want to team up with each other,they are overheard by Annie and Abed who I guess were trying to do the same thing..(this is the second time Annie was more than willing to ditch Jeff and I can’t help but wonder why?) they are overheard by Shirley and Jeff who are furious who are overheard by Pierce and Todd…God that was exhausting . Jeff calls a meeting in the study room (our and their comfort zone) to discuss the “Todd problem “, the funny thing about Todd is that I felt about him the way the study group did, in my mind he was in the way every time he talks i”d feel like shut up extra…why are you talking?! so I find it interesting that the group is going through its crazy self-involved dynamics with a stranger in the middle. I loved the scene that comes next, they are in the study room and Todd is sitting that stayed empty  for two seasons (excluding the Jack Black episode) feeding a turtle. They are all uncomfortable with this invasion of space by Todd the “random” “non-grouper” .The fact that they kept saying no offence was really offensive .The scene in the study room is brilliant, the charatcters act like we always known them to ; jokes are passed around equally and appropriately and this scene becomes a team work an evidence of what happens on a set when the cast is in total n sync. There is something that I need to point out; Jeff and Shirley are said to be around the same age which I guess means she is about 5 years older and Jeff is about 33 or 34 years old and I seem to remember Abed being 30 in season 1 so Abed and Jeff are close in age why would Abed consider him old?

As they decide to make it a popularity poll things spiral out of control as Jeff discovers he is paired with Todd and Todd is the more popular individual, Shirley discovers she is the least popular one ,Pierce is overjoyed he is more popular than someone and Annie is the most popular of all because she’ll do all the work. This realization does not sit well with anyone, I loved the scene where Britta thinks she is more popular than Troy and Abed sets her straight. The circle of attack continues Jeff attacks the group, Annie attacks Jeff then Todd then Abed attacks Annie, Annie attacks Shirley ans her religiousness, Shirley attacks Britta and her delusional of being an animal activist, Annie attacks Britta for not dissecting  animals, Jeff stops the madness only to reveal how unbelievably self-centered he is only to to attacked by Pierce….Todd tries to leave which is what should have done a while ago and Jeff puts on his scary face, I love Jeff’s violent outbursts he is really scary when he’s angry. At this point the characters look really tired and I think it is not acting or make up the poor souls looked awful they must’ve been shooting really late. Anyways Jeff physically tries to attack Abed with Britta as a human shield, Jeff carries her out of the way (as the tag shows this must have been the closest she came to male contact) to chase Abed to take a look at the infamous ballot. Todd the unlikely voice of reason puts a stop to it and lets the group have it, and with that we are taught a lesson, he calls their love “weird and toxic and it destroys everything it touches”  this is one of many points that the show tries to make, the group’s relationship might be close but it is not necessarily healthy and I disagree what is a healthy relationship? they are selfish and unappreciative to anything outside their domain and I think that is normal when you have a group of people who accept you for who you are it might be unhealthy but it is necessary or we’ll be always alone trying to fit in, we all look for validation and when we get it and trust it, it can lift us up but also it can be a dangerous thing as we see the group hurts other people cluelessly if they were alone and not together they migh be more attentive and careful because it would be very important for them to be accepted. Through Todd’s outburst we discover that Todd is not an extra he is a character with a back story that is both interesting and touching. You’d think the group learned its lesson and they felt sorry for Todd, you are WRONG they detect Todd as the alien that caused an imbalance to their Eco system.In this episode one gets to see the group from an outsiders point of view, we the audience are not looking from the outside, we are one of them now…. close to a single tear running down Todd’s face as the group tears him to pieces behind him back.

I did not forget the Chang film noir story line, it was a fresh look at the Chang psyche, a trip to the unfortunate world of Chang’s mind. The episode presented an interaction between Chang and the Dean in what might be the best and only voiceover-off on TV. The events ran out in an insane unrelated pattern as Chang tries to connect unrelated events to random objects delivering the best ridiculous quotable quotes ever.

things I noticed after watching 3 times :

  • Chang’s manicane leg girlfriend thet he stole from the janitor, funny and sad something Community does really well.
  • “Dean low”
  • “who’s Nick Nolte?”
  • Michael K Williams speech about Legos
  • the group assumed Professor Kane heard about their adventures
  • Jeff’s half-hearted impression of Abed
  • the group makes awful background actors,the way they were hanging out by the water cooler as the dean and Chang talked was weird.
  • Annie looking for a beetle in the salad
  • “my own words rang in my head like a bell inside a head”
  • “the kind of arms that had elbows”
  • wardrobe people: Annie’s outfits are unflattering lately she is hot and now 21 come on change her wardrobe a little.
  • the weird fungi colony in the men’s bathroom
  • “maybe your gay friend should  mind his own business” Shirley definition of a homeopath
  • “Arizone backwards is still Arizona”
  • Troy’s logic of why he should be paired up with Britta
  • “the hair color concept intrigues me because that’s how I distinguish you anyway”
  • Jeff’s reaction to being called old
  • Abed’s reaction to anything
  • the study room table still has the ax cracks Jeff made in Biology 101
  • Chang’s board of “related events
  • “Oh No she’s got her marijuana lighter”
  • “who the hell are you always texting everyone you know is here” I have a theory Annie…his mom.
  • “don’t get your number 4 stink on this Todd “
  • Pierce’s face when Annie and Shirley are fighting about religious beliefs
  • “do they  have tiny little faces?”
  • “Pierce wake up Jeff is gonna heal us”
  • “I just had a terrible nightmare that Jeff was a pompous ass”
  • Annie passing out after failing the assignment…I have a feeling that one was improvised.
  • Britta’s obvious lack of action in her life “maybe i need to take one…..” Abed’s face.
  • OFFENCE TAKEN

Community Review:Jeff Takes A Swing At Perfection

It’s back and feels like home again. The season 3 premiere of Community is as brilliant as always and a little more , it had a season one feeling but not really. We are introduced to new characters and dynamics of who is what are changing. To deliver on his promise of being less wierd the episode opens with a dream sequence of Jeff (Joel Mchale) flying in the sky singing, then the whole school breaks into song and dance, Abed (Danny Pudi) making eye contact, Annie (Alison Brie) a little too cozy with Jeff ( we’re gonna sleep together)and with black underwear showing (maybe Jeff is dreaming of what underwear she might be wearing, he really really wants to sleep with her).  Jeff snaps back into reality summoned by Annie’s voice and they are in the study group room again discussing Pierce.

Pierce wants get back to the group and Jeff doesn’t want him back,Jeff argues to the group and to us the audience (with ulterior motives)that this unity of the study group goes beyond taking one class and staying in collage together as they are now a family and will be always in each others lives.Karma would have it Jeff is kicked out by the new biology professor to be replaced by Pierce.

Jeff’s imperfections and reliance on the group takes center stage and we see first hand how Jeff has changed, in season one he wanted to be left alone and now he struggles with sitting friendless in the cafeteria and being  excluded. Jeff has become his worst fear, the uncool outsider, the Pierce. In my opinion Jeff’s worst nightmare is becoming Pierce when he grows older.

Jeff then tries to convince Professor Kane to let him back into the class and is denied his request because his new professor hates him, he really does Jeff was not wrong there, so expect those two to butt heads. Jeff finds a picture of Pierce with what looks to be professor Kane (turns out it’s just a black guy a mistake made by Pierce in season one) which leads him to be convinced he is the victim of a conspiracy lead by Pierce, and lets be honest so did we. The writers walked us thorough Jeff’s train of thought knowing that we will be on Jeff’s side to reaveal later that we were wrong hence vindicating Pierce to everyone who thought he was a villain as he yet again saves the day.

This episode felt like an introduction to how things are going to be from now on, I can honestly say that this is one of the few season premiers that I watched and felt that the show has grown as characters, directors and writers.I for one loved the episode theer is nothing better than crazy Jeff, well except  for crazy Annie as we will see in next weeks debate-like episode where we will meet Annie’s nemesis “Asian Annie”.

Best Scene: Jeff attacks the group with an axe to destroy the magical study group table. I love the fact that their table now is not perfect it has a crack that is fixed by Annie. That crack will forever stay there representing the season 3 motif  “acceptance in the face imperfection”. We will see how the group will grow further into not needing the “magical table” anymore.

P.S: Best lines were Troys’s in this episode as he insults Britta.

“It’s Like God Spilled A Person”: TV Characters Who Are Just A Mess

Some characters on TV drew the short straw in life, we love them but we can’t avoid the fact that when the writers cooked up the character they were thinking of the most unfortunate people they know from high school orchildhood.It can’t be helped some characters just seem to face bad luck everywhere they go. You look at them and you say “How the hell did this person happen” but again we love them anyway.

1. Ben Chang Community played by Ken Jeong : He’s not only insane but also he has nothing going his way. He’s homeless, friendless and obnoxious.He follows the study group around like a lost puppy (an ugly puppy) and gets constantly rejected. He should have a disease named after him.

2.George Costanza Seinfeld played by Jason Alexander : He is a mesh mash of horrible, he was unemployed for a long time, he is cheap and falls short in every aspect .No one wants to be George and if you are a George get a personality altering surgery or something I don’t care how … change it now !

3.Morgan Grimes Chuck played by Joshua Gomez: He might be a spy now but there is no denying that Grimes is a loser, he might not be as horrible as others on the list but he has his fair share of bad composition with a hint of dorkiness.

4. Andy Dwyer Parks and Recreation played by Chris Pratt: he is the epitome of underachiever, though he is a fun guy to be honest he is an embarrassment, he’s not the guy you take home to meet your parents.Luckily he found someone to share his insanity and life.He works as a shoe shining man in a government building (good right! wait for it ) after being homeless and living in a pit outside his ex-girlfriend’s house where he before fell and broke his 2  legs . One word for this character…Stray

5. Liz Lemon 30 rock played by Tine fey : If you watch the NBC hit show you will not need me to explain,but I’ll do it anyway. Liz is the producer of a TV show in NBC (good for her right?! wrong) that is the only aspect liz manages to pull off. She is messy and disorganized, her personal and social life is a disaster, her dating history reads as the “who is who of trashy leeches” .

7. Phil Dunphy Modern Family played by Ty Burrelle : this suburban family man is as dorky as they come.He rarely does anything right and always manages to get into trouble for our comic amusement. He’s a great dad and husband but never to take out in public.

So here you have it, as I was watching a character in my life unfold as a total mess, I list this for your summer pleasure to remember that not all are lucky,smart,beautiful,graceful or eloquent but all are loved.

Note: the quote listed above in the title is from NBC’s Community.

Community finale: Unlikely heroes and enemies

Greendale Collage students were united this week under their butt flag to save the place they call their toilet against City Collage .With a tribute to starwars that seemed befitting this is the last we will see from paintball my guess is the writers will not give us the pleasure of another paintball episode .

Troy, Abed and Annie took the lead on this episode. Toy and Jeff struggle for leadership and abed snags the  Han solo role from under Jeff and decided to make Annie the object of his desire.

All Charaters were there in the final episode. Vicky, Magnitude,Leonard, Kendra with a qu, some of the Cougertown cast and even a picture of the show’s creator dan harmon managed to make its way up there.

here are a few of the earth-shattering awesome scenes from the episode:

Magnitude jumps on the robot bomb.

Jeff Accepts the role “thrust” upon him as Troy defies him

Abed flirts with Annie when she cuts her hand -the manly voice is hilarious-

“i do happen Jeff, i do happen very much”

Pierce list Jeff’s weaknesses and why is Jeff jealous of Pierce

Jeff’s inspirational speech to Kendra with a qu (quendra?!) then gets shot and bails.

Troy gets shot in the chest

Abed grabs Annie and kisses her right, God! Annie is willing to kiss anybody isn’t she.

Paint sprinklers go off as Annie and Abed are kissing (phew)

Shirley runs as the sprinklers go off

Shirley heroically tries to save the school with Britta only to get shot at the end

Pierce saves the day, that guy needed a win

Final session : Abed shoots down Annie’s advances, all is back to normal

sad: Pierce is done with the group, they didn’t accept him and he’s done trying. They all look at the door waiting for him to comeback.

What will season 3 hold since the creator has done everything he ever wanted? will we see a maturity to the show? will season 2 get an Emmy nod? all i know is my Thursdays are empty now.

Community:”Annie’s got a gun” The death of Annie and Jeff

As you grow older you lose the childlike wonder towards things.This week i got that back with community’s “A Fistfull Of Paintballs“.  the episode opened with fat Neil runing screaming for his life followed by “the A team”,  Awesome Annie shows up all sexy and hot to shot them all cue intro : the intro is one of the best intros i have ever seen i was jumping up and down as it played -no i was not high i am just a Community enthusiast.

Annie jumps through the window “pants-less” and open a can of beans, Abed infiltrates her strong defense made of cans and strings. Is it just me or was there something awfully sexy when Abed says :” But i guess it’s lucky for me i am unarmed, seeing as I’m eating your beans” , if it wasn’t Abed saying it I would’ve said it’s a euphemism. turns out he’s a messenger from Jeff calling for an alliance. Cut to Jeff being chased by the Math club along with Chang his new BFF.

Abed shows up to the rescue after Chang naturally betrays Jeff , Jeff charmingly greets AnnieMy Lady” and Annie is not charmed, who can blame her she loves him and he acts like a jackass granted she tends to romanticizes their relationship but it didn’t come from thin air. At that point i was excited for it all Annie is finally hot but Jeff didn’t seem to notice, Alas.

Their new found alliance is graced by the hotness of Josh Holloway, “the dark rider” oh how I’ve missed him. I hope this Cameo will get him some TV pilots. he comes in and says “I’m the guy that’s gonna win” and i melt, FX should seriously consider him for Justified.

They are later arrested by the law because Jeff is wanted gay and alive (funny) and taken to a magical place called ” Fort Hawthorne” where Vicky dances for Twinkies and Garret just dances, the supporting characters are having a voice on Community which i like.

Jeff is finally convinced that Pierce is not a bad guy over a feast of Twinkies and Twizzlers (YUM),and then the moment where all my hopes and dreams died comes; when Annie explains why she is on Pierce’s side Jeff says “you’re a good kid and i want to do my part to help you stay that way” and then (tears) he pats her on the head like a puppy and with dies all hope of Jeff and Annie ever getting together. The message have been implied a lot but now i finally get it Jeff doesn’t want Annie, for him she is a kid.

I was such a fan of those two but the writer sat in a room and decided to end it. why oh why ?

Annie shooting the cheer leading squad was redeeming to a lot of us who wanted to do the same in high school. Annie having the sexy weird encounter with the ‘Dark rider” was intense, Annie you idiot kiss him… Jeff comes and ruins I mean saves the day, awesome shooting sequence begins ends with Jeff insecurity prevailing.

Cut to the dean stuffed in a locker with very important keys in his shorts (hehe) Annie takes the orange whooshy gun to kill Pierce which leads to a showdown between Annie and Pierce revealing they want Pierce out of the group (that was mean) .Pierce fakes a heart attack and shoots the”Dark Rider ” who leaves too soon and reveals there is a big conspiracy going on in the school .

Finally the best part some ones shoots Chang senseless, rewind,rewind.Did anyone find the ice-cream cone comanding his team as they kneel very much like a scene form South Park . A perfect pause to a perfect episode Sans the head pat part (still whining).

Paintball 2 bring it on, my bet City Collage is involved.
