Goofs

As with most movies and TV shows, the Soldiers' wear and appearance are wrong. Most obvious is Michael Ironside's beard, which is not allowed. Both soldiers are also missing combat patches and badges despite being veterans, and Ironside is wearing a cap while indoors. Ironside also identifies himself as Lieutenant Colonel, but his uniform has the rank of Captain. See more »

Brilliant
13 May 2012 | by vishnusinha228See all my reviews

This episode was one of the funniest episodes in the history of the series. For someone who hasn't seen even one episode of Law and Order, I thoroughly enjoyed this parody because of the similarities to general crime procedural dramas. The performances were brilliant and the ones that particularly shined were that of Troy Barnes, Annie Edison and Abed Nadir. I loved Pierce's and Shirley's smaller roles as well but i especially laughed my ass of at Britta's extremely short scene which was so brilliantly done that i don't have words to describe its awesomeness.. I love community and i hope the show offers episodes like this in the future now that it has been renewed for a 4th season. :)

My vote is 10.
