More specific then the stuff you told me about Britta? Troy and Britta were both invited to attend a study group for a Spanish class they were taking. Although it was revealed to be a sham, the group that gathered for the meeting decided to form a real study group. Throughout the semester, Troy and Britta had very little interaction despite being in the same group. This was due to Troy's budding bromance with Abed and Britta's flirtatious relationship with Jeff took up much of their time.
The sophomore year at Greendale sees Troy's crush on Britta becoming more apparent. Troy is upset when it's revealed Jeff slept with Britta and kissed Annie last year at school. Later, Troy and Britta along with the rest of study group gets caught up in a City College plot to sabotage Greendale's new space program. Troy and Britta have a moment when she accidentally ends up on his lap during the caper.
In the Spring semester, Britta becomes interested in Troy's friend Lukka but he tries to discourage it. He didn't want Britta "ruining" Lukka by revealing intimate details about him while they dated.
Troy and Britta take an acting class together. When asked by Professor Garitty to recall a traumatic memory, Troy cannot and created a fake past where he was molested by his uncle. Britta sympathized with his made up trauma which Troy took advantage of despite Abed's warning. Eventually he was forced to come clean and although Britta was angry at first she forgave him.
Near the end of the school year, the group make their final diorama for Anthropology. Abed reveals that Britta had been having casual hook-ups with Jeff throughout the year. Troy is obviously upset, particularly because he thought everyone agreed not to have intimacy with themselves or each other. She ends up kissing him but later claims it was a mistake. Troy and Britta become even closer during their third year at Greendale.
Despite being busy with new school challenges and other relationship problems, Britta realizes Troy's depth of feelings for her. She reciprocates his affection after he helped her avoid hooking up with an ex-boyfriend.
At Annie's suggestion, Troy asked Britta out for a lunch date.

Although Abed predicted it wouldn't go well they ended up having a good time. Their relationship is stymied when the study group is expelled from Greendale due to a cafeteria riot they helped instigate.
Eventually the group is reinstated but Troy is forced to leave Britta and his friends behind and join the Greendale Air Conditioning Repair School. Over the summer, Troy regains his freedom from the AC school and rejoins Britta and the study group. Britta later helped him move back into his apartment.

Troy insults Britta calling her "human tennis elbow", a "pizza burn on the roof of the world's mouth" and "the opposite of Batman". Despite Abed's predictions to the contrary, they end up having a good time. She later helps him move back into his apartment in the room which used to contain the Dreamatorium.
Troy and Britta are in a relationship in the study group's senior year at Greendale which is immediately noticed by Jeff and the others.
Maybe it has just been forever since I last watched community, but I've been really confused the last couple weeks as to when Troy and Britta.
Later that day, Troy and Britta got into a fight while trying to observe a wish making ritual he and Abed did at the school's fountain. Although they tried their best to keep it a secret from Abed, he eventually told them that he knew they had been hooking up in the apartment.
While there, Britta warned Troy about Toby Weeks correctly guessing he was trying to steal his best friend. Towards the end of the school year, Troy and Britta are reminded by Shirley and Annie that it's their one year anniversary.
A "body switch" between Troy and Abed occurs that puts a damper on those plans with Britta playing along and allowing Abed to take Troy's place on the date. Troy admits he hasn't matured enough yet to be in an adult relationship.
He adds that while he was never comfortable being her boyfriend he knows with certainty that he can handle being just her friend a lot better. Britta tearfully agreed and afterwards in the study room, Britta pulled Troy aside once the group left and the two shared an extended hug. They are with their son "Chewbacca" which Troy told Britta means "He who hunts bounties". Real News. Real Voices. Let us know what you'd like to see as a HuffPost Member. Canada U. US News.

And now the writers would have us believe that it's Troy and Britta's supposed indifference to each other that not only led to the relationship's demise but also its lack of screentime and plot progression this season.
What a cop out! It almost seems as though the writers don't feel that any stable, happy relationship can exist in a comedy, which is both lazy and wrong. Uh uh, just no to the whole thing. But hey "Idiots love tv weddings! More power to 'em. Its fun to see talented actors try out their peers quirks and ticks look at Glover's hands when he's doing Abed; the way Pudi raises his voice at the end of a sentence.
Its wasn't trying too hard hey More of THIS please.

The puppets were really the absolute worst!!! I don't know how Codey Barber declared that the best episode of season 4 by far!
Simply mind boggling I hope that you totally messed up my name on purpose. Otherwise, I'd think you didn't like me.
Does Harmon strike you as the kind of show runner who is governed by studio notes? I don't think Harmon was too particularly beholden to exec notes except, "You're Fired, we can hire someone cheaper than you". But he acknowledged that there were 4 young people in close proximity of each other, who might hook-up. Like so much stuff this season Dr. Who parody, Remedial Chaos Theory being played out to the Nth degree they took his ideas and wrung alot of simple, formulaic, tv sitcom trope, bs from it.
Because it's easy, and again, Idiots love a tv wedding. Dan Harmon m. Between the last episode and this one, they're getting back the groove they lost. This is the kind of thing I watch Community for -- old storylines handled in refreshing new ways. There are plenty of breakup episodes for sitcoms, but none take quite the approach of "breakup by way of Freaky Friday parody.
Brita and Troy aren't the only ones that forgot their anniversary. Nearly everyone did. Because it was given such little screen time that I am not even sure you can constitute it as a TV relationship. It has had its moments mind you. But that is all they were, moments, seconds, milliseconds, freaking Plank Time Units.
It was a non-relationship relationship. In that it only really occurred off screen. So at what point am I to care about the breaking up of a relationship that we never really saw? Answer; At no freaking point do I care. It wasn't a funny relationship like Brita and Jeff. Not a feel good relationship like Shirley and her husband. Weird, like Abed and coat check girl. Funny like Jeff and professor. Or Annie and Shirtless guy or even Britta and shirtless guy. It was nothing. So I can't really say I felt one way or another about their break up.
It was another in a series of plots that was diluted with trying to incorporate the rest of the cast in needless ways to give them screen time.Community: Troy hits on Annie.
Saying that, the concept of the episode I didn't mind. It gave Donald Glover some much needed screen time. It gave Danny Pudi some screen time and they did a lot with it.
Though I have to give to Donald for the win. But again with this episode it felt like too much filler and not enough substance. The whole Die Hard thing was dumb. I know it was tried to illicit a reaction from Abed. But it lasted way too long.
Annie And Shirley's quest seemed like it was only there to give them screen time. And it was only saved by Jim Rash and his spot on impression of Jeff. That was the only thing that saved that bit. Chevy is gone so that doesn't really matter.
And frankly after his absence the last couple of episodes I was surprised to see him. I still can't really blame him for leaving.
His has been given crap to work with all season. But the episode though it did make me laugh was still based on a relationship that wasn't given to the viewer enough to care about.
And for that it just makes it bad. It pains me to say that because Community truly might be my favorite sitcom of all time. I would be so bold and say that I feel this conclusion worked best because of the way the show handled their relationship. Thought it was one of the better ones and felt more like the Community from previous seasons.
As for the relationship I think you might be watching the wrong show. They have never been serious with relationships on this show. I'm pretty sure they're trying their best to be the anti-friends here and you might just be reading way too much in to it. The whole Annie and Jeff thing hasn't really gone anywhere either. The show abandoned a deeper plot for any of the characters way back in season 1 and have barely touched on any of them except for a random episode here and there.
I find it refreshing actually. There's a difference between the show avoiding romance and neglecting an established romance. When they've gone to the trouble of building up Troy and Britta then the writers deciding to not take it seriously is actually harmful to the characters. I enjoyed it. That said I saw this review prior to viewing it, so I skipped the last minute or so during the credits because I don't want my memory of a good Community episode tarnished with crappy outtakes.
It worked. This wasn't as dramatic a relationship as say, Jim and Pam on the Office. It just kind of happened, then just kind of ended. The relationship was filler. This whole season never really had a main story arc like the last season, and just kind of felt like it was going through the motions, so the relationship fizzling out seemed fitting.
You say that you feel they didn't focus enough on the dissolving of Troy and Britta's relationship, but I think that's kind of the point. There was really nothing there to focus on. Yes there were some cute moments leading up to it but once they started dating nothing really changed. They went from friends to friends who sleep together.
Nothing was really progressing at all, and I think that once someone pointed out that a year had passed, they both realized that. Fantastic acting by Danny, Donald and Jim. Everyone was just great as their character pretending to be another character. I always feel Danny Pudi is under appreciated as an actor and should be up for awards. I have to say for the body switch though, Donald Glover truly won becoming Abed.
I've said it tons but I just feel Community has really changed since it's gone away from it's true roots. In no way would I want Community to mimic Season 1 always but that set it all up and they've strayed from that so far. Just seems much more now. Overall from what I read, I'm actually stunned that Community could be renewed?? Think we all ultimately thought when this season started it was nearly "nail in the coffin" over.
The route they're going maybe it's good to say goodbye but we shall see. It was one of those that didn't need a lot of jokes because the characters were developed enough to actually pull this off. And the performances, just wow. There were a couple of moments where the Dean was not oncreen as he spoke to Shirley and Annie, that I would have believed it was actually Jeff speaking.
Jim Rash needs to write more episodes! Totally agree. The voice impersonations done by Rash were almost eerily accurate. There were times that I wondered if they were doing voiceover work.
I'm sure they weren't.
I did laugh at all those scenes but I think it was more of a weird "why are you doing that" type of laugh. Also I think Jim Rash should write more episodes, I think is the first time that I have felt like the characters were being more themselves and not a shell of who they once were, also loved the fact that it DIDNT rely heavily on past gags didn't notice any inspector space-time stuff!
Abed is actually wearing an Inspector Spacetime shirt the first day, but I don't know what everyone's problem is with recurring jokes. Sure they did one ep all about it, but the rest has been subtle stuff, shirts, hats, etc. I don't get why people are up in arms over it. People love the recurring Daybreak or "Troy and Abed! It all comes down to how good and enduring the gag is and Spacetime is a bit of a stinker. I don't mind recurring gags its just that that one has really been over played this season.
Weird, I feel like my opinions have been the total opposite to Cory's all season the puppet episode being the absolute low point of the season for me. Jim Rash, you magnificent man, I love you, please write more episodes from now on. No, it wasn't perfect, but the Troy and Britta relationship sucked all season and I liked the kind of meta resolution of acknowledging that it really hasn't worked all season.
I love Leonard. Not only did I laugh the most out of all the episodes this season actually really laughed! I feel like this episode managed to successfully merge "the gag" with the trickier emotional bits.
On Community's Season 4, episode 11, Troy and Abed pull a Freaky so Troy can run from what he knows he has to do: break up with Britta. Abed, acting like Troy, went on an anniversary lunch date with Britta, proving he's the most committed friend of all time. He started the break-up. When Annie started dating Britta's ex-boyfriend Vaughn Miller, Jeff and Britta tried to split them up. They manipulated Troy into trying to hook up with Annie but.
And how fun the gag was. I want to see the behind the scenes of Danny and Donald playing each other because it was so funny! The dean's Jeff impression was hilarious, and I loved the callback to Annie falling for impressions of other people. I also really liked Jeff NOT having any of it, as well as doing the flicky light thing at the end. I also loved Troy and Britta ending their relationship with a hug, which also began their relationship.
Finally, they're able to have a storyline IN Greendale mostlythat works. So many good lines this episode: The Dean having to grant Leonard 3 wishes, Troy wanting to be scolded to get aforementioned wishes, and especially the solid end-tag. Personally, I thought this episode was the closest to a season 2 or 3 episode this season, and probably the best episode of Season 4.
To me it clicked on every level--performance, writing, and direction.
