It’s been done before, but “Community“‘s spoof of “Law & Order” in Thursday’s episode was still a great parody.

The NBC sitcom paid homage to the venerable “L&O” franchise in “Basic Lupine Urology,” with Troy and Abed playing the “detectives,” (who lamented, “We can’t both do the zinger”), while Jeff and Annie filled the roles of the attorneys. The crime? The study group’s science experiment is sabotaged (ie, somebody smashed a yam on the floor).

But you can’t have a true “L&O” spoof without a death … yes, they killed off one of the students! “Starburns got rear-ended and the meth lab in his trunk exploded. He’s dead.”

“Community” airs Thursdays at 8/7c on NBC.

“Greendale is represented by two separate but equally important types of people: The goof balls that run around stirring up trouble and the eggheads that make a big deal out of it. These are their stories.” Chung-Chung!
