Community season 2 episode 4 called “Basic Rocket Science” aired NBC last night. This week Community decided to spoof Apollo 13 in a big way.
In “Basic Rocket Science” we followed a very simple plot-line-when the dean of Greendale learns that
his biggest nemesis City College has launched a space simulation program to get some huge media attention he decides to purchase his own space simulator branded by KFC and asked the students to clean it up – but they accidentally turned it on -they were sent of to space and they land in the middle of nowhere.
But thankfully Abed was left behind and had the task of guiding the mission back to earth.
You can already predict that all ended well and the gang made it back safe and sound.
Here is the plot of the episode:
Dean Pelton gets a flight simulator for Greendale after another college is planning on getting their own. He enlists the study group to clean and refurbish the simulator. As the group (with the exception of Abed) wash the simulator, they accidentally launch it, sending everyone into “outer space.” Abed is left behind and tries to navigate a safe “return” for everyone.
Overall it was a very solid episode with few hilarious lines and crazy scenes-but there were no character development.This episode felt like a filler that greatly entertained us.
The great news is that next week’s episode called “Messianic Myths and Ancient Peoples” is less ludicrous and is more character focused as Shirley get in a fight with Abed over the creation a religious film.
