Community has been rocking the Thursday night comedy block, and this week's episode should be no different. In "Intro to Political Science," the gang preps for a student body election when they hear that Greendale is expecting a visit from Vice President Joe Biden. The ensemble's stars Alison Brie and Danny Pudi got on the phone with reporters to talk about the episode, which will also feature Annie and Jeff running against each other in the election, and Abed and Troy taking part as news anchors.
Will we see anything happen between Annie and Jeff in the future?
Alison Brie: You know, I still think that Annie holds a little flame for Jeff. We saw [it] in an episode when we first came back and Rich comes on the scene; you can tell that Jeff gets a little bit jealous. I think that there is a bit of a push and pull between the two of them, and actually in this episode that we're talking about, there's a bit of that tension there as well, throughout the election. I think that their bumping heads kind of fuels more of that. I think that anytime they're together, there's a bit of that, because it can't exist, or because it's controversial. I think that makes it dangerous and interesting, and obviously to Annie, it's exciting to have a crush on an older guy, and she continues to try to challenge Jeff in that way. That spark is not totally dead. You may catch glimpses of it in this episode. We shall see . . . we'll have to wait and see if it amounts to anything.
What TV or movie references can we look for in this week's episode?
AB: I felt like we were actually basing it more on real life and coverage of actual political events. There's a bit of Hillary Clinton, I think, for what Annie is doing, and maybe even some Bill Clinton for what Jeff is doing. We tried to keep it pretty political.
DP: And I play Chelsea Clinton.
AB: Which is great because his hair is super curly.
