High school is usually four years, but those dummies on "Head of the Class" took a lot longer than that.
There are community colleges that offer Bachelor's degrees. Usually they are injunction with another institution, but I've seen them locally (get a Bachelors from XYZ College by staying two more years at ABC Community College).

Could easily pull some BS like that too...

Except that CBS is going to try to kill it.

It would be hard to choose between Annie and Brita. I'd probably choose Annie though. I'm a brunette guy.

Not hard at all; Annie wins by a landslide imo.

Disappointing finale IMO. Seems like the writers quickly descended into Saved by the Bell scripting with the Jeff and the "love quadrangle". All the girls in the cast get their turn with the star. I am pretty excited about the inevitable Jeff/Shirley hook-up, though.

Troy did have a great line... "My friendship with Abed is a giant cookie!"

I'll admit - with episodes like the chicken finger one and the paintball one running up to the finale, the finale did feel kinda weak. But honestly, the Brita/Jeff relationship was inevitable for the series. I think they gave it an interesting twist with the Annie thing.

They can easily undo it all by just saying "we tried relationship(s) and they failed over summer break." It would feel like a copout, but I'd get over it quickly if they had some funny episodes right off the bat.

Agreed, but usually a good series will milk that dynamic for a couple of seasons at least. I can't imagine a lot of comedy coming from the jealousy of whoever loses out on the Brita/Annie competition. Just seems like a set-up for a weird study group or (even worse) a cheesy concession by one of the girls to support the other's relationship with Jeff. THAT absolutely screams Saved by the Bell.

If they do go down this path, I at least hope Abed makes his usual sitcom observations and ties this to the Zach/Kelly/Jesse/Lisa merry-go-round.
