It’s a case of “well, I guess I have to post this now.” The season finale to Cougar Town repaid the quick Community cameo of Busy Philipps and Dan Byrn with one by Danny Pudi.
The only way it could have been better would have been if Pudi had crossed through the background of a Courteney Cox scene like he described in the My Dinner With Andre episode of Community. But I’m not complaining.
Notably, having Abed show up in the background wasn’t even the best crossover in this episode. No, that honor goes to the appearance of Ted Buckland, the sad sack lawyer from Scrubs, who reveals that his love interest on Scrubs, the ukelele-plahing Gooch, has run off with Dr. Hooch. And that’s pretty great, but the only way it would have been better, intra-network-crossover-wise, would have been if he had made a joke about the actress who played Gooch, Kate Micucci, now appearing as a recurring character on Raising Hope. What can I say? I have high expectations for pop culture minutiae.
