* BadBadActing
* CharacterExaggeration

to:

* BadBadActing
BadBadActing: The actors Abed got to portray himself and his friends aren't very good, though in different ways and to various degrees. True to form, Britta is the worst; her actor speaks in a stilted way and completely fails to emote -- Abed is almost as bad, as his actor radiates awkardness and over-pronounces everything. The rest of the actors are slightly better, but tend to overplay.
* CharacterExaggerationCharacterExaggeration: This version of the characters are pretty exaggerated caricatures of their normal selves, almost to the point of {{Flanderization}}.


Added DiffLines:

* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: Frequent for Britta -- presumably because her actress can't actually ''show'' the emotion in a believable way.


* {{BechdelTest}}: Fails. As one of the female students point out, the "movies" didn't have any positive female characters.
--> '''Chang:''' Maybe that's because all my female students are negative.


* CriticalResearchFailure: Invoked with Pierce's Film/JamesBond parody, James British - He's completely unaware of AustinPowers & Film/JohnnyEnglish, two spoofs of the Bond character that share a similar appearance or name to Pierce's character.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Jeff invokes this when he asks if they can't just study for the 90 seconds & be done quicker.



* PottyEmergency: Subverted - Shirley tries to get to the restroom, but gets halfway before realizing the 90 second study break isn't long enough.

* LogicBomb: The group ask Annie when she read about the need to take these 90 second study breaks, and pull this when when she admits she read about it on her last study break.


* AudienceMurmurs: Troy and Abed's chatter at the very start. Troy's filler chatter of choice is "red leather, yellow leather".
