Watch Community‘s Dark Knight and Anime Tributes

Almost Totally Excellent

Is Community the anti-Big Bang Theory? Where instead of presenting geek stereotypes as crazy people who have trouble functioning in normal society, they present normal society as full of crazy people with geeky interests all trying to function together? You know, like actual society?

I honestly haven’t watched enough Community to know. But you can watch last night’s completely unexplained-and-acknowledged cheap-anime-style interlude above. We knew the anime segment was coming, but we didn’t know that the episode would also include Danny Pudi doing an extended, spot on impression of Christian Bale. Also some breaking and entering. Watch below!

You see, Annie accidentally broke Abed’s $300 unique The Dark Knight DVD and instead of confessing, she staged a break in of their apartment. When their landlord refuses to look into things, Abed takes matters into his own hands, in the spirit and costume of his favorite hero.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
