I might be a little late to this particular Community party, but this is pretty amazing. The second-season episode "The Psychology of Letting Go" - the episode about the death of Pierce's mother or, to some people, the one where Britta and Annie start oil wrestling - features a story about Abed meeting a pregnant classmate, helping her reconcile with her boyfriend, and ultimately delivering her baby. Don't remember any of that? Neither did I, until I re-watched the episode and focused entirely on the background, where Abed's story plays out. Keep a close eye on this video to get the whole story:
Yes! Fantastic! This is why I love densely layered shows like Community and Arrested Development; because no matter how many times you watch an episode, you can still pick on awesome new things, even entirely new plots that run through a whole episode. It's like playing "spot the observer" during Fringe!
