Once one knows the rules, one can break them. That’s the case with NBC’s“Community” and its creator Dan Harmon. He knows what makes a successful sitcom, but then he turns it on its head. Thursday’s (April 21) episode, “Paradigms of Human Memory” is a great example of that.
“I think we’d all agree we worked as a cohesive group better than we’ve ever had,” Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays Shirley, tells Zap2it. “We had such a limited amount of time and so much to shoot. So, it was literally us running, running, running to get everything we needed for that episode.”
“I don’t know how they’re going to fit it all into 22, 23 minutes,” Joel McHale, who plays Jeff, tells us. “But if they do, I know it will be a spectacular episode.”
Last night’s episode had so many good moments – including Troy’s secret fascination with LeVar Burton. And, as you’ll see in the latest behind-the-scenes clip, is Yvette Nicole Brown’s favorite Community storyline so far!
