So, uh, hi.

Days at work right now are desktop deployment, which means a lot of small gaps of idle time--enough time to jot down a few things that are on my mind, most notably the death of Guitar Hero, as well as the sale of Harmonix. All of it can be found here for your perusal. Again, I figure most of you don't care much, but just in case you're curious as to what's been up with my hobby of choice, there you have it.

Also, I mainlined all of Community to date a couple of months back, and have been following it steadily since. This past week's episode focused on a character with suicidal thoughts, and without turning it into a Very Special Episode (or even mentioning the word "suicide"), managed to write a fantastic episode that explores the situation in-depth. I'd not heard of Scallywag and Vagabond up to now, but after this essay, I'll probably be checking up on them on a regular basis to add to my critical analysis of pop culture TV.

Still reading everyone's posts! Even commenting on them, occasionally. Life just isn't that exciting, even if it's a bit busy right now.

Community is fun, from the one D&D episode of it I saw!

That's the episode the link critiques. And it's got plenty of classic episodes, as well, in its season-and-a-half thus far:

* "Debate 109," not spoofing anything in particular,
* "Comparative Religion," a Christmaswinter episode,
* "The Science of Illusion," part prank episode, part wunza-plot episode,
* "Contemporary American Poultry," the GoodFellas homage,
* "Modern Warfare," the paintball episode,
* "Epidemiology," the zombie outbreak episode,
* And the entire second-season run from "Cooperative Calligraphy" (the other bottle episode--both "Advanced D&D" and this one are classics!) to "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas" (the Rankin-Bass homage), with a conspiracy episode and a fantastic character study ep in between.

Pretty much every episode's a winner. The parody episodes are the more memorable ones, but all the other episodes, which tend focus on character dynamics, are also golden. If you get a chance, I highly recommend watching as much of it as you can.
