After Community has spent two episodes away from Greendale in the past few weeks, we finallyreturn to the hallowed campus with tonight’s installment “Alternative History of the German Invasion”. While the episode might not have been very funny by Community standards, it was still so great to see the group all in one place with all of the Greendale supporting characters making their grand return.
The main conflict of the episode centered around the German guys returning to steal the study group’s room. We haven’t seen these guys since season three’s “Foosball and Nocturnal Vigilantism”, but it looks like Nick Kroll’s character Juergen was replaced by his brother. Unfortunately, his brother is even more irritating of a German stereotype. I didn’t find these guys very funny last season, and not much has changed here.
