Exclusive: Watch Community's Take on the Iconic Law & Order Theme Song and 'Zinger'!

Every Law & Order has a detective quick with the one-liner in an episode’s cold open (Briscoe, Stabler, Goren, et al.), and Community‘s homage to the iconic NBC procedural (airing this Thursday at 8/7c) is no exception — in fact, it’s got two of ’em!

In the following exclusive first look, Troy and Abed jockey to fill the coveted zinger slot when the Greendale gang investigates the alleged sabotage of their yam-sprouting science experiment.

But that’s not the best part. No, the best part is quirky comedy’s Law & Order-inspired opening title sequence.

    This episode is going to be awesome.

  3. zillyzallie says:

    It amazes me that they take the time (and money) to create unique openers to their thematic episodes. Loved it.

  4. Leah says:

    I’ve never been more excited for an episode of community…and that’s saying something.

  5. Mía says:

    Down to the zinger, this episode will be amazing

  6. Angela says:

    Hahahaha, oh, my god, that take on the opening title sequence is AWESOME. I was laughing just watching that. Loved the clip from the episode itself, too. And we get Joel McHale in a suit again on top of it all? Oh, yeah! I can’t wait for this episode.

  7. Gabriela says:

    not available outside the US, whaaaaaaaaaat

  8. tvaddict says:

    Looks so good! Cannot wait

  9. haha Sounds like Abed is making fun of Dave Caruso from CSI:Miami there with those terrible punchlines =)

    I am SO excited for this episode =)

    E. Pluribus Anus…. Out of Many, Poop. Nuff said.

  11. Alex says:

    Amazing. Could be the best open parody this season, and that”s with the Ken Burns episode as well… Great season so far, totally Emmy worthy.

  12. Chase says:

    I was torn between watching community or the NFL draft. Not anymore.

  13. This looks so good! I was smiling just watching this intro! :D Can’t wait for the episode.

  14. Claire says:

    That show is genius, I can’t wait to see that one :)
    Damn, now I have that theme song in my head…

  15. Cheroro says:

    Not as epic as the DnD episode’s theme. I still want that on my iPod to this DAY!

  16. This show just keeps getting better and better!

  17. Monte Cristo says:

    I don’t even watch this show regularly, but I won’t miss this one!

  18. I have been waiting for this episode to come as soon as I heard about it months ago. I will be laughing every second.

  19. Oh can’t wait 2 see @yvettenbrown in the newest Community, law and order episode.

  20. E says:

    Wonderful! And I HATE Law and Order!

    • SpyTV says:

      Exactly. I think that’s the point. It is pretty unlikely that fans of Community overlap with with fans of cop procedurals all that much. Once you’ve seen a couple L&O episodes, you pretty much have the formula down. Community is great.

  21. Evie says:

    If it’s not available outside the US, how come I’m able to watch it in Australia?!

    • Lisa London says:

      Same here in the UK. It’s quite weird though ’cause I’m usually never able to access anything coming directly from any network website or Hulu…

  22. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Thanks TVLine! I loved it! When I heard about them doing this episode, I was wondering if it would be Abed or Troy who got to do the Jerry Orbach zinger. Glad to see they both get to! R.I.P. Jerry Orbach, you are missed.

  23. Oliver says:

    It was region locked when it was first posted, but they’ve subsequently made it region free

  24. oansun says:

    LAME, where’s the funky bass riff at the end? RIP OFF!!!!
