Community has returned after a three month hiatus that had fans freakin’ out with fear their favorite comedy was gettin’ axed. Thankfully, Community prevailed and is back where it belongs, Thursday nights at 8pm on NBC. Make sure you join us every week as we recap the continuing exploits of Greendale’s most infamous study group.

So far since Community‘s returned we’ve had a wedding almost ruined by Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta’s (Gillian Jacobs) drunken ramblings, a bar mitzvah where Seacrest Hulk rampaged and Chang (Ken Jeong) gained an army, and a feud between best friends Troy (Donald Glover) and Abed (Danny Pudi) that ended in an epic and climatic pillow fight. Things have been crazy at Greendale Community College, even for them! This latest episode has been a nice change of pace. “Origins of Vampire Mythology” is a little quieter, a littler calmer. Well, sorta. Normalcy has returned in the sense that we begin withe everyone gathered ’round the study table, Troy and Abed are inseparable, Pierce (Chevy Chase) is complaining he doesn’t have a best friend, and we learn Britta has a past love she can’t control herself around. Oh, and the Dean (Jim Rash) shows up in an all too revealing train conductor’s outfit. That’s very normal by Greendale standards.

Community has returned after a three month hiatus that had fans freakin’ out with fear their favorite comedy was gettin’ axed. Thankfully, Community prevailed and is back where it belongs, Thursday nights at 8pm on NBC.

Last week’s episode explored normality, this week’s Community took a deeper look at the weird. Abed (Danny Pudi) and his ever growing addiction to hiring celebrity impersonators to act out famous movie scenes is at the crux of this episode. The addiction is beginning to put a strain on the group, but it’s affecting Troy (Donald Glover) the most, even while he seems to be in denial of Abed’s problem. The B plot focuses on Jeff (Joel McHale) coming to terms with needing help to manage is incredible ego, and it’s a journey to the center of what makes Jeff, Jeff.

Gathered in the study room Annie (Alison Brie), Britta (Gillian Jacobs), Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), Pierce (Chevy Chase), Troy and Abed share what they did over break and what new excitement they have coming up at Greendale. Britta is super stoked for a new psych class where she’s encouraged to study a fellow student, everyone else can only groan at the thought of all the terrible diagnoses she’s sure to make.

Jeff: It appears you’ve all noticed that my swagger has an all new swagger.
