Abed – the Messiah of meta-storytelling :)

“Our life is a movie. Even if there are no cameras.” Abed Nadir

The cult TV show Community is known for overanalysing plots and referencing dozens of shows and films at blink-and-you-miss-it speed. Abed and meta go together, as he is the driver of TV nerdhood and self-reflexivity.

This episode from season 2 episode 5 “Messianic Myths and Ancient Peoples” is simply genius. Abed goes full-on meta while making a movie that may or may not be the movie 🙂
