* In "[[Recap/CommunityS6E01Ladders Ladders]]", Abed wrote a speech for the Dean to read as a way to inform the viewers about what happened to the remaining members of the study group since the end of the season 5. The problem is that Abed wrote the speech ''before'' he learned that Shirley had left, and yet the speech didn't mention her at all.

** Since the speech was delivered ''after'' Shirley had left, presumably the material pertaining to her was simply removed.

** After Abed discovers that Series/CougarTown has been pushed back to mid-season, Britta finds the British sitcom it was based on to fill the void, Cougarton Abbey. The title appears to be a {{Portmanteau}} of Series/CougarTown and DowntonAbbey. One episode of CougarTown had the cul-de-sac crew play a game where they'd combine the names of two movies in such a manner.

** Aside from a subplot where Troy and Abed are trying to watch ''{{Blade}}'' without interruption, there's not actually much to do with vampires in this episode... until you remember that the classic vampire subtext is of a mysterious man who has a powerful and all-consuming allure to women (usually metaphorically standing in for sex) despite being bad news for them, and who will, if they are allowed to sate their desires with him, ultimately lead them to ruin -- i.e. Blade. And Jeff spends the entire episode trying to figure out where this allure is somehow coming from. Hence '''origins''' of a '''vampire's''' (Blade's) '''mythology''' (sex appeal).

** Troy seems notably disinterested and reluctant to help Britta with her problems throughout the episode and would rather watch ''{{Blade}}'', which makes him seem a bit callous and uncaring. Except, it's clearly established that Troy at the very least has a bit of a crush on Britta, Britta's problems in the episode centre around an old boyfriend who she finds irresistible despite herself, and there are few things worse than having to put up with someone you're romantically interested in continually going on about someone else...

*** I don't want to upset the OP (s/he does make a good point about Duncan's morals) but although both events use the same term ("cheating"), getting answers to exam papers and Duncan's father committing adultery are fairly different forms of deception. My interpretation on Duncan's outburst about his dad is that it parallels to Abed's loss of his mother (for Christmas at least). We see that while Abed copes without his mother by wanting to spend time with friends and hoping to find a new perspective on Christmas, Duncan suppresses his anguish by undermining the Christmas spirit and criticism.

Added DiffLines:

** Britta's personality in this episode seems very different from in the rest of the series, with her actually being the OnlySaneMan of the study group rather than the hypocritical, self-hating idiot she would later become. However, upon careful examination, this isn't the case. Note how she freely admits, without any sense of guilt or irony, that she lied to Jeff to get him to do what she wanted, despite claiming the whole episode that she valued honesty above all else. She was ''always'' a hypocritical idiot, but the other characters (and the audience) just didn't know her well enough to see through her StraightMan act yet.

** Every study group member's story ends with something horrible happening to another member of the group, with the exceptions of Abed and Jeff. This is {{Foreshadowing}} that [[spoiler:Abed and possibly Jeff are the only two sane people in the group.]]

*** It would seem likely to me that the experiment would, if not prevent, then at least make it difficult for people to leave to go to the bathroom / get something to eat and then come back. If the purpose of the experiment is to see how long it takes people to explode while left to wait in a single room for a prolonged period of time, then letting people come and go is surely a good way of ruining it -- by letting them come and go at will, you're removing a key source of stress that people who were forced to wait in one room would experience. .
