In this week’s Community, Troy and abed think they switch bodies through a Freaky Friday DVD Troy gives Abed for their five year anniversary. Meanwhile, Britta and Troy are REMINDED of their one year anniversary of their first date by Shirley and Annie while planning their history project that Jeff iterates needs to be only “passable and doable.”
The “body switching” bit leads to Troy and Britta actually talking about the things he tells Abed regarding their relationship and the fact that he just wasn’t ready for their relationship. About how he doesn’t want to ruin the friendship and we get to see it from both sides as we see the anniversary date go down at Senor Kevin’s while “Abed” and Jeff start looking through the lost and Found for the Freaky Friday DVD that started it all. It was great being able to see it from both points of view.
While Troy and Abed are seriously committing to the Freaky Friday bit, the Dean joins in as he thinks he switched bodies with Jeff exhibiting some very “Jeff” like behavior, which makes him more willing to help Shirley and Annie find out how Leonard became number one in the class. There were some moments between Annie and the Dean that made me laugh and cringe at the same time, like when the Dean rips his shirt off and Annie instantly reacts.
As this is all happening, we see at the end of the episode Pierce, who was in maybe two minutes of the episode (which I’m totally okay with) ends up finishing the project making it much more than “passable and doable”, which surprises the entire study group and the audience.
