Having taken a break for Thanksgiving, Community returns with a brand new episode this week. I paid a visit to the set of this episode, and when I asked Joel McHale ("Jeff") what the storyline was, his deadpan response said it all: "Venereal diseases are involved."

She really wants her brag sheet to be great when she's ready to move on to her state school or other colleges. So she just tries to head up every project, and this is her latest." Brie added that while Annie is trying to promote safe sex, "It kind of seems like they're trying to promote STDs. We're celebrating STDs at the fair. So if you have one, come on by!
