*cue screaming with laughter*

Here's another attempt to get the non-Community-watching portion of my f-list to CHECK OUT THIS SHOW. My favorite scene from Thursday's Dungeons and Dragons episode:

I also love this gif:

If you've ever role-played at ALL, you should watch the whole thing. Non-US people, I can hook you up, too. ;)

I've never played 'Dungeons and Dragons,' so I was lost there for a while, and I suppose a 'serious' vibe is always in 'sweeps' episodes, but this one did not appeal to me ... the fat jokes just went on and on.

Pierce is usually tolerable every week, but he was taken way too far. All in fun huh... not really.

Sorry, I watch every week, but another subject matter could have been just as effective... bullying rubs me all wrong..

I disagree - it was very serious, yes, but the viewer is not meant to take bullying as all in fun at all. Too many stories about it are played for laughs in the wrong way, or unrealistic revenge fantasies. This story used a fantastical framing device to discuss a serious topic.

As far as Pierce, he was hateful. They are definitely setting him up for a storyline later this season, though I do have some advance knowledge. It's the "show not tell" school, and so the audience is not being given many hints about it yet. I think the next two are going to deal with it hardcore.

Though the bullying was highly uncomfortable, I thought it ended on a really hopeful note. Neil showed that he was the much better person, and gained everyone's respect (exc. Pierce), whereas all he had before was pity and ridicule.

But it's okay if you didn't like it *hugs*. I just found it brilliant on several levels, and had to share!

*hugs back* I did enjoy the clip, sorry, I had meant to mention that!

And yes, it did end in a hopeful and agreeable manner, so it did serve a purpose!

Just like last night's SV episode..! Alls well that ends well..! :D
