Three Network Sitcoms Used The Exact Same Hacky Halloween Joke Last Night And There's Still No New "Community"

By Joanna Robinson | TV Reviews | October 25, 2012 | Comments ()


The new "Community" may never live up to the Harmon-era episodes, but surely it's got to be better than most of the sitcoms airing right now. Sure, creating a fresh Halloween sitcom plot can be challenging...I guess. Unless, of course, you're "Happy Endings."

Anyway, most folks likely won't notice that the same plot was trotted out on three different shows last night because no one watches "Animal Practice" anymore and I'm pretty sure no one ever watched "The Neighbors" to begin with. Regardless, I heard this "bro, when you said we should dress as ______ and _____, I thought that meant I should be _________" joke three times last night. THREE TIMES. And someone will pay. (Probably my DVR.)

Tyler Labine and Bobby Lee as The Lone Ranger -- "Animal Practice"

Parker Young and Maestro Harrell as Fred -- "Suburgatory"

Tim Jo and Cara Mamet as Sexy Nurses -- "Neighbors" (I only know this from commercials because even my DVR has standards.)

On top of all that, as you can see from the header, "Animal Practice" had June Diane Raphael dressed as Justin Kirk's character to irk him and, oh yeah, over on "Suburgatory" Alan Tudyk did the same to Jeremy Sisto's character.

What's my point here? My point is BRING BACK "COMMUNITY." BRING IT BACK RIGHT NOW.

..oh and P.S., Jane Levy makes an adorable Daphne.
