Utilizing their setting on a college campus has allowed 'Community' to seamlessly stream in guest stars without ruining the flow of the series. This week, Jeff took another stab at a "blow-off" class, bringing us the incomparable Tony Hale as the ethereal instructor of Beginning Pottery, not to mention Lee Majors as the sailing teacher.
While Jeff was able to get Abed and Annie to join him in pottery, Pierce, Troy and Shirley instead took to the high seas ... of the parking lot, when they signed up for a sailing class. Jeff's journey was one in which he had to learn that being the "cool guy" doesn't necessarily mean he's good at everything. The lesson came from a not-so-surprising source: the resident expert on not being good at things.
The sailing storyline was little more than sight gags and silliness, but I thought Jeff's journey of self-discovery had some genuine character moments, and plenty of funny moments. I certainly didn't expect Dr. Pottery's voiceover at the end. I guess we all have the demons of our parents to thank for some of our hang-ups.
