It makes so much sense! He's the best!
Want to hear the worst thing? I was in NYC last weekend, and while I was seeing a show Sat night my brother, who I was staying with, had his wife's best friend's engagement party. So he had to miss his friend's 30th bday party. His friend used to work on 30 Rock. When I got home that night, my bro said really sadly, "Guess who was at x's party that I forking missed -- Tina Fey, Kenneth the Page, (someone cool I'm forgetting), ...and Childish Gambino." We screamed for about 30 mins. (I do love that he said Childish Gambino instead of Donald Glover.) Just another reason to hate engagement parties

I really liked hearing his background on the podcast. Also its so interesting to hear about his route to TV. Plus he has an interesting take on race that seems very accessible and funny - I liked his observation that he was going to auditions and being pushed to play black roles a certain way, and not being 'black enough'' which is why all the roles he has gotten were originally written for white actors.

I seriously think this year's holiday episode was the one of the best episodes ever, if not my favorite overall. That is a lot coming from me, because I am not into musicals! But I do love to skewer Glee, a show I've never seen and hate nonetheless. More importantly, though, the social satire was absolutely incredibly spot-on. 'Baby Boomer Santa' and Annie's dumb bimbo song were quite possibly the most brilliant things I've ever seen.

The Glee parody aspects were *really* good. Even down to Annie forgetting that she's Jewish, as Rachel does whenever a script demands it. And I love that both Glee and Community, in its parody of Glee, invoked the Star Wars Christmas special. And I swear "It literally means ... Glee!" should not be as funny as it is, except the delivery is so. good.

When I was last in NYC (November!) it snowed, and a friend and I marathoned Community S2. The claymation episode was *so* much better than I remembered it! The Christmas Wizard! And Teddy Piece! And the end with the reflections! I LOVE IT ALL!!!

Hahah yes, such attention to detail! (for Community writers, not Glee obviously)

Oh my goodness, yes! I was hysterical. It was perfection. It's so funny!

It's on again now! And even though I have now watched it on-demand 16 times, I am watching again. By now I know the whole thing by heart, but I can't stop smiling! This is AMAZING.

Has anyone figured out what Abed means when he raps "if years were seasons, this December would be the December of our December?" I get lost in all the Decembers.

Last night I saw a commercial showing the new Thursday line-up. Community wasn't on it and it was replaced by 30 Rock. So no re-runs for a while either.

I think it means something about being the end of their winter...

A reference to Richard III? "Now is the winter of our discontent."

"If years were seasons" - as in television seasons, as in, this is the third season of Community.
"this December" - it is December holiday season during the episode.
"would be the December" they are 3/4 way through the television season.
"of our December." This is their third season, just like winter is the third season when you go "Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring."

So basically Abed is saying "If this was a television show, right now, we'd be 3/4 of our way through our third season."

When he says that line, there is a circle divided into quadrants, and each quadrant has 4 circles. 2 quadrants of 4 circles are completely filled in, and the third quadrant has 3 of 4 circles filled in. The fourth quadrant has empty circles.

I agree with the reference to tv seasons and I think it's somehow referencing how the show's future is up in the air. I don't think of December as part of the 3rd season (I would start with Spring), but as an end.

Even with diagrams, winter comes first in the year. Maybe Community is only going to be 4 seasons, and that would be more of a combo of your's and Mel's?

I need to rewatch that scene.

I thought it referred to a darkest day kind of thing, which works with both the show's possible cancellation and the "underlying darkness" theme of the episode. But I think that and frozen veggies' explanation are not mutually exclusive.

I'm a little confused about the order of the seasons, though. I don't think winter would be the beginning or the end of the year for him, because, if anything, Abed would order the seasons according to the TV schedule, which means that the year starts in the fall and ends in the spring (since Abed is not on cable). Sure, Community isn't on the spring schedule, but I doubt the writers would've known that when they were working on this episode.

I forking love this show.

ETA- Though, if they were referring to WORKING on a TV show, Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring is the right way to order the seasons. Writing begins in the summer, with shooting starting in late summer.

I love the fact that we're trying to decipher a cryptic message from Abed, which I'm starting to think is impossible.
