I don't care about what the majority of fans are saying about this episode. It's terrible. This show was appealing because it focused on realistic community college life and making friends and acquaintances who are totally opposite form each other. It's a realistic and relatable plot to the majority of people. I noticed the series was starting to stray away from that plot before this episode but this is inexcusable. It's completely unfunny and the focus is completely dull. Abed is hilarious because of the atypical way he acts in situations and amongst other people. It is completely ridiculous to show an entire simulation that's completely in his mind and for some reason just have everyone just play along like it's real life. That is SO unrealistic. No one in real life does that ever! I can forgive certain episodes that are no where near realistic (like the annual paintball episodes) but only because they are actually funny and entertaining. This series has seriously declined. I can see why it got cancelled.

This episode appeals to the simple minded who don't understand real life. Seriously your taste is abhorrent if you like this episode. Go ahead and downvote if you disagree. I'm not apologizing. Truth doesn't care about your feelings.
