TheWrap has an interview with Gillian Jacobs.
And in the first year with the squirrel costume [for a Halloween episode], that was my idea as well. Initially, Dan didn’t understand why I wanted to dress like that. He had said, “What about a pirate?” or something like that, and I just felt that it should be more asexual than that. I felt that Britta would be taking more of a stance against sexy Halloween, and that she would have strong feelings about girls using Halloween as an excuse to dress like sluts. Maybe that’s someplace where Britta and I agree.
When Dan saw me standing on set holding my giant acorn, he kind of saw why I wanted to dress like that. He ended up liking the idea, but initially I think he found it baffling.

Part 1 one of a 4 part series with Dan Harmon talking about every episode on season 2.
In its second season, Community tried so many different things that it sometimes seemed like a different show every week. In 24 episodes that aired from September of 2010 to May of 2011, the show visited genres and episode types as diverse as zombie tales, stop-motion animated Christmas specials, and clip shows. Along the way, it attempted to tell a complicated story about the ways in which its central characters could be just as bad for each other as they were good friends to each other. Series creator and executive producer Dan Harmon sat down for an epic interview with The A.V. Club to talk through the season, episode by episode, and his thoughts will appear over the next four days. Today: the first six episodes, spanning from the season première, “Anthropology 101,” to Halloween episode (and zombie epic) “Epidemiology.”
