You asked for remakes:

The Cameo game is great because you have to choose between a person’s actual value and their self-perceived value.

I stumbled on some cyclist that charges $1000

Cheapy is wrong about a lot of things but trying to say that pro table tennis players burn as many calories as real tennis players is the funniest. Right up there with Wombat trying to explain RAM.

This. Somehow, being an amateur table tennis player qualifies Cheapy to be an expert on calories burned by a pro tennis player. Glad you love the sport, no one is denying you can get a good workout playing. Comparing tennis and table tennis...just, wow.

Table Tennis matches take less time than regular tennis matches!

 

Wombat's Howard Cosell impression is on point. Hopefully Cheapy or Shipwreck can do Gene Rayburn.

which is why i quantified as saying an hour of high level play, and not a match. Not that it matters, but Table tennis tournaments usually have multiple matches during the same day.

Are you suggesting that I would burn substantially more calories if I was playing Tennis for that same amount of time? For reference, I burn 800-900 calories during a 50 minute workout at OTF.

You do fit a lot of TT matches the time it takes to play one Tennis match.

Wombat, I'm also binging Community. I had to skip season 4, the one without Dan Harmon, it felt like fan fiction.

I like how Cheapy says  "I lived in the city for 10 years Motherfucker" (29:00 mark) - You should loop that into a song

We're all glad you have a hobby that excites you, but you're becoming one of "those people" who feel the need to cram it into every discussion. There's a line between being exuberant and being a douche. Could you imagine if Cheapy was a vegan or something else fanatical along those lines? He'd spent half the episode trying to convince Ship and Wombat to go vegan. Give it a rest.

An underappreciated gem in this episode is when Shipwreck read an article saying tabketennis can burn up to 600 calories per hour for an advanced player and Cheapy said "well let's find a real tabketennis article, not some clickbait-y Google article." Because we all know, if you're writing clickbait, you would write something about how many calories you burn playing tabletennis.

I like table tennis enough to play it at my local JCC and to have come 2nd in my office's tournament last summer, but Cheapy needs to chill out with the ping pong pimping a little bit.

TENNIS vs TABLE TENNIS....... the only way to make any comparison, is between a pro tennis player vs a pro table tennis player, or an amateur tennis player vs an amateur table tennis player, same skill level and same time spent playing.......even a child could clearly see that TENNIS is a more physical sport and a better overall workout.......in the words of Ship, "tennis involves running"......smFh Cheapy.....wow

CheapyD: Exercise Physiologist!

 

I perused a few research articles on the topic out of curiosity and shockingly not a ton of research has been done comparing the energy expenditure between tennis and table tennis, but what has been done backs up Shipwreck's "clickbait-y Google article."  Comparing to the heart rate of 140 that CheapyD posted (since that's much more widely reported), the average heart rate for competitive (meaning skilled but not elite) tennis players is 143-152 beats per minute.

 

The first couple seasons of Community were really good but I completely lost interest about half way through the series because the story lines were so ridiculous and not very interesting to me.  Wombat calling it one of the greatest sitcoms of all time is a bit of a stretch, in my opinion.
