In this week’s episode of Community “Conventions of Space and Time,” Troy and Abed somehow convince the rest of the study group to go to an Inspector Spacetime convention.
So of course, like any good sitcom, they leave behind two people who decide to go anyway, the young girl fantasizes about being married to the older man, the girlfriend doesn’t like sci-fi, and the mentally dubious one learns a lesson he should have learned two seasons ago.
Anyway, one of the sub-plots has Pierce giving advice to a TV focus group. The way he and Shirley end up in this predicament … well, I don’t know if it’s more unfunny, or more insulting to a large segment of the population. Or maybe I”m just overly sensitive in my weakened and ill state.
If you watch Community, you know that in one of the penultimate episodes, Pierce Hawthorne (Chevy Chase) had to play a video game to retain control of his company.
I’m not going to spoil the plot of that episode (though you’ve had enough time to watch it). But I am going to inform you that a handful of fans have decided to create the game seen in the episode. It’s still in very early alpha stages, but is being constantly released. The latest version is 0.0.11. I, for one, can’t wait until it’s done.
The game is simultaneously being developed for Windows (both x86 and x64 systems), Mac OS X, and Linus. And the graphics and music (so far) are absolutely amazing.
So, I have the piano here in the room, facing the computer. And I just got all this sheet music from the old home, including a songbook from Pippin (be prepared for bad impressions of William Katt). So of course the first thing I do is record this.
