Community: "Modern Warfare" Review Episode 23


I'll be honest, I was really looking forward to this episode after seeing the trailer last week and was thrilled that it lived up to the hype. Like most episodes of Community, the premise was far-fetched, but the fine mix of subtlety and silliness made it the strongest episode of any sitcom I've seen in a long time.


The plot was simple: the Dean organized a school-wide game of paintball with an original grand prize of a Blu-ray DVD player. When the device was stolen, the prize was changed to "Priority Registration" (a far better reward) and all hell broke loose. Jeff woke up from a nap mid-battle and soon found himself in a tenuous alliance with his Spanish study group, fighting to be the last one standing. And from there, Community pretty much had its way with every blockbuster action movie from the past 30 years, including Die Hard, T2, The Matrix, Rambo, Scarface, The Warriors, Hard-Boiled and a slew of post-apocalyptic survival films. I know I'm forgetting a few, so don't be shy about mentioning other references you saw.
