Here's why Community is the ONLY sitcom worth watching for me: brilliant writing, meta-levels of self-depreciating humor and sarcasm, tons of homages, nods, easter-eggs... and this. In an episode dealing mostly with a particular character's inability to cope with the death of his mother, another character's storyline takes place in the background. Simple and yet genius.
Remember how in last week's episode of Community Abed was nowhere to be found? Turns out his entire storyline played out in the background. Mind = blown! (via reddit)
