    I would assume a lot of comedians would be pretty good rappers. I mean, they are certainly clever enough. Especially since a lot of rap is taking shots at other people/things.

    I think the issue is most comedians do not have the self confidence that exhibits itself in most rap. Im not sure in Donglover is faking it or if he realizes he is badass and lets it out with dope rhymes.

    Abed would never fall for that shit, so was removed from the process. Pierce is not entirely stupid/clueless.

    Piers knows that Abed already sees himself as an outsider, and that Abed is the only character who doesn't live in self-delusion.

    "What do I know, Im Jeff Winger's dumb gay dad?"

    I love this considering her self-righteous "I have a gay friend, and it's totally cool. I'm soooo not homophobic" arc from last week. But, like in the football episode, one of her go to insult is "gay."

    I don't think she's using it as an insult.

    I think she just has a very naive notion of what the term means and keeps applying it in inappropriate situations.

    That's kind of a running theme for her; she loves to seem like she has life experience that she actually doesn't.
    It's pretty consistent with her beliefs on anyone masculine being a repressed homosexual. Look at her attitude towards fighting in the first season Christmas episode.
    Yeah, and that's what I'm talking about.

    The "Manly man is really a closet queen" is a pop culture staple that has minimal grounding in reality. But she has adopted it because she thinks that's how it actually works and the image that she's cultivated requires her to be at least conversant in gay culture.

    I knew he was clever enough, far more clever by far than most rappers, but I'm always skeptical of people who just rap (or do anything really) on the side. Rappers who try to act. Comedians who try to rap. Actors who try to sing. Branching out often fails hard.

    It's On is fun, Freaks and Geeks is even better, he reminds me of lil wayne on this track: http://www.earmilk.com/2011/02/12/childish-gambino-freaks-geeks/ , but I far prefer him as an actor/comedian/writer. It's a little weird to hear him dropping the n-word and acting gangsta given his comedy, his work as troy, and his skit on the n word http://comedians.jokes.com/donald-glover/videos/donald-glover---can-t-say-it

    donglover is a decent rapper, not elite. Rapping well is an actual skill, it's not as easy as people seem to think. (and that's not all there is to being a rapper or producing good music) You can't just do it without work. Shit's poetry man.

    I've already said dude seems cool as hell, and has an awesome website, love the design: http://www.iamdonald.com/

    I wasn't really that impressed by his rap.

    The profanity and subject matter were jarring in juxtaposition with his comedy and characterization on this show.

    Man, I never saw Donglovers stand up before. Watching those clips, he can do some great impressions.

    Its a wonder SNL didnt snatch him up given his work with Derick Comedy and his writing on 30 Rock. I mean, 30 Rock wouldve had him make like 100 SNL connections. Maybe he denied them?

    EDIT: The line "elephants never forget so my dick remembers everything." is fantastic.

    As someone who has listened to hip hop for most of his life I am proud to say the he (Donald) has me more excited than anyone else I've heard in recent memory.

    I dont know what it is but every track from http://www.culdesac-album.com/ and onward has hit so hard.

    Enough rubbing on his balls though! Anyone know the ratings yet?

    YOU SUCK FOR MAKING ME LOOK. HERE I WAS ALL EXCITED ABOUT ONE OF THE BEST HALF HOURS SINCE LAST SEASON AND I SEE THESE NUMBERS :(

    NBC Community 1.8/5 4.16

    Still better than Perfect Couples afterwards.

    My wife dvr's Big Bang Theory and we watch that after Community, I don't think I laughed once because Community set the bar so high. The only other thing I can remember making me laugh this hard lately was last week's Parks and Rec ("it rubbed off")
    Remember when it seemed like Joel McHale and Gillian Jacobs had no chemistry?

    I think they have achieved the nearly impossible. Actual realistic take on Friends with Benefits. I am so on Team Annie however I have known so many couples that are similar to Britta and Jeff... those are those long haul on/off relationships filled with flavour that's sometimes hard to watch but you always want to see what happens next.

    PS: My dad (Who is an old white man, swear to god they all look alike at some point) did not feel this episode at all. I think it's because they picked on the old white man in his opinion.

    It's actually the only NBC show of the night whose ratings held steady with last week, rather than go down.

    Of course, this says more about how fucked NBC currently is than how well Community is doing, but hey, it is relative good news.

    Community doing better than Perfect Couples is good news.

    For Community anyway, PC is not long for this world. You don't drop in viewers on the half hour when most of your "competition" is hour-long shows. It also means people are tuning in specifically for Community.

    It was also competing against BBT and American Idol.

    It was a pretty well-produced track, sounded a good bit like Wayne. I'm not a big fan of rap like that though, the kind of flashy stuff that lacks much substance.

    I forgot my name. That's how bad it was. They said "How are you? What's your name?" and I stared at them like Troy did and then turned to my father who had to tell me.

    last night I felt like perfect couples actually hit a stride. don't think there are many fans of it here but for some reason each week I say 'oh right that show is on now, I should turn it off' and then I don't.

    and this week I finally feel comfortable saying I enjoyed it rather than that it was a very mixed bag

    I caught my first viewing of perfect couples last night. It was...sufficient.

    The waitress from Sunny brings a bit of Sunny style quick-mean dialogue to the show. When they called her with the photo of the dead possum it definately had a sunny vibe. You can tell shes married to charlie.

    I also enjoyed the desire for pranks. "Is this possum here as a result of a classic prank?"

    I wanted to give it a chance too, I'm glad that last night's episode vindicated my patience. I was very pessimistic about Olivia Mun's inclusion into the show at first, I've heard about her before from G4 and I've seen her a couple times as a correspondant on the Daily Show, but I'm actually glad to say she's been proving my pessimism unnecessary. She's actually quite good.

    This episode was god damn amazing. I haven't laughed that hard in a while.

    Meanwhile, my coworker just tapped away on his phone and didn't laugh once. He said it was one of the worst episodes he'd seen.

    Then we watch parks and rec, and he immediately laughs at Ron(?) listing words, the 3rd or 4th being "butthole."

    I mean, that was funny too, but really? It's like he doesn't get anything beyond physical comedy and dick/fart jokes!

    That was my first thought when she said that! I don't think you could pick a bigger waste of cash.

    I have really liked this season so far though I am a little sick of how terrible Pierce acts.

    Disrupter was saying earlier how they really have captured his utter GIMPness, for lack of a better word. And it's true-- I think most of his relatability comes from how he is That Guy that virtually every group has at some point. Pierce is definitely the Gimp of the Community crew. I guess I wish he were characterized in a way that would make him a little more pitiable/relatable/less obstreperous rather than constantly zoning in on the annoyance factor with him.

    Also, I demand a "more fish for Kunta" title for this thread. We do, at least, have a Kunta-related title, which is better than nothing. But clearly this was the money line of the show.
