Scoop! Community Pays Homage to Pulp Fiction
Sources tell me that Community has another awesome episode in the can, and it revolves around the Greendale gang — namely Jeff (played by Joel McHale) — planning a surprise party for Abed (Danny Pudi). And what better way to mark the birthday of a pop culture fiend than with a little love for Pulp Fiction?
Of course, themed costumes are mandatory at the festivities, so we’ll see Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) in her Samuel L. Jackson finest and Britta (Gillian Jacobs) channeling Uma Thurman’s knockout. But the best part of it all might be that the cross-networks love letter between Community and ABC’s Cougar Town continues throughout the episode, in which our other favorite TV comedy figures largely into Abed’s dialogue.
I’m hearing that the NBC comedy’s homage to Tarantino is chock full of some very, very strange stuff — what, Big Kahuna Burgers? Foot massages? Adrenaline shots? — and could top Community‘s growing list of obscure, and thus brilliant, installments.
What are your thoughts on Community‘s latest genre-bending adventure? Anyone else hoping to see Ken Jeong as The Gimp? Hit the comments!
