The Ongoing Saga of Inspector Spacetime
Abed’s obsession with Inspector Spacetime has its origins in Cougar Town being moved to mid-season. Britta briefly gets him hooked on Cougarton Abbey before finally introducing him to the Inspector.
Then Trobed showed up in the Halloween episode dressed as the Inspector and Constable Reggie. Because they admit they weren’t actually in costume, we can assume they had just come from doing this in their apartment:
The Inspector’s signature bowler hat is sweeping the fashion world as well.
Abed and Troy have now decked out their apartment with Inspector posters.
A plethora of Inspector Spacetime websites and Doctor parallels now exist. I particularly like posts on tumblr.
