Ash Ketchum is half my age and yet twice as cool as me
Abed has been “drugged” by popular culture and the ideals it deems natural by the powerful bourgeoisie network executives and has in turn become a bourgeoisie envoy as he attempts to place his new natural order on his study group - the proletariats…the (socially) “poor” members of society.
“They’re Abed’s rules. And they’re awesome. And they always work” - Troy.
When things begin to change (History 101), Abed retreats into his bourgeoisie utopia - Abed’s Happy Community College Show - to try to recreate some semblance of the natural order, where his rules are law, and nothing ever changes. This utopia of his, is modelled after typical television situations and genres, because to Abed, those represent the perfect way of life. Television has instilled these values into Abed, and he now believes that is how the world should be for everyone, always.
Community is a media-on-media meta-critique of pop-culture. It uses itself to make fun of itself. And that’s cool - and eye opening. Karl Marx would have a field day with this show. And I get to write an essay about it…which is also super cool.
I’m still not over this.
THIS MAKE S ME LAUGH SO HARD EVERY TIME
