Game On, Nerds: It's Dungeons and Dragons Time on 'Community'

We've seen the Greendale study group take on the scifi realm in "Modern Warfare," a zombie apocalypse in "Epidemiology" and even become clay-animated in "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas." But as fantastical as all those stories were, they all took place inside the "real" world of Community. Tomorrow, the group takes on an epic adventure of a different, but still just as epic, variety: They're playing Dungeons and Dragons.

Led by dungeon master Abed (of course!), the group embarks on a journey into the dark world of D&D, and are joined by "Fat Neil," a loner Jeff decides to take under his wing. But when Pierce discovers he's been left out of the fun (again), he forces his way into the game and takes charge, disrupting their delicate plan. Watch a preview for the episode, which is already getting rave reviews by those lucky enough to pre-screen it:

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

The gang jumps whole-heartedly into their Dungeons & Dragons roles. Senor Chang becomes "C-Bone the Magnificent," Shirley is "Brutalitops the Barbarian," Troy is "Bing Bong the Archer," Annie is "Hector the Well-Endowed," Britta is "Lavernica" and Jeff is "Marrrrr."

Of course, discerning TV-loving nerds everywhere remember this other moment when D&D got a chance to shine: When the geeks of Freaks and Geeks introduced Daniel (James Franco) into their realm as "Carlos the Dwarf." Will Community live up to this classic scene? Tune in tomorrow night at 8pm to find out!

One last thing: Community writer Emily Cutler has been tweeting out hilarious/adorable/creepy/perverse/sexy photos of the Community cast getting their actor-on-actor loving on for the last couple of days. Follow her to see the action!
