While NBC continues to insist that the absence of 'Community' (Thu., 8PM ET on NBC) from its 2012 midseason schedule does not mean the show has been cancelled, many fans still feel that this episode may be their last chance to rally support for the show. (Save Greendale!) To make that task simpler, the 'Community' gang riffed on one of television's most popular and acclaimed shows.
When members of the Greendale Glee Club found itself suffering simultaneous nervous breakdowns, director Taran Killam ('Saturday Night Live') called on the study group to fill in -- except for Britta. When they rejected him, he realized he only had to turn one and then that person would do the work for him.
So he got Abed on board, who then roped in Troy by performing a holiday-themed rap called 'Christmas Infiltration.' By the time the episode was through, the cast had mocked several elements of music, as well as 'Glee' (where does that piano guy come from?). And Britta got her chance to shine, such as it was, with a piercing solo from her heart.
