So happy that October 19th is almost here!

It won't be the same. Wake me up when  Rick & Morty premieres this fall.

Interesting opening....

I'm a fark horrible person, I'm watching BBT first, then Community and Parks and Rec.

Then I go to the Danger Zone

That cold opening was a pretty good troll.

Annie's boobs look huge. They must really be dedicated to improving their ratings.
 
2013-02-07 08:19:39 PM
This episode seems very fast-paced
 
2013-02-07 08:20:12 PM
It's like a spoof of Community... seems... off...

Hugh2d2: It's like a spoof of Community... seems... off...


I know what you mean, I can't quite place it, but it DOES seem a bit off. I'm trying to decide it it's a placebo effect or if this episode just isn't as clever/funny as past ones.
 
2013-02-07 08:24:11 PM
it's bad
 
2013-02-07 08:27:03 PM
At least there was no Chang

Shiat.

Was the laugh track what made it seem so messed up/
 
2013-02-07 08:33:07 PM
I genuinely don't know how I feel yet. There were some good jokes, and the first few episodes are usually rocky. Maybe once they settle in they will be smoother.
 
2013-02-07 08:33:26 PM
It's the new lighting and camera angles.
 
2013-02-07 08:34:32 PM
Hmmm.... only more pics of Annie can make me feel better.
 
2013-02-07 08:35:09 PM
It's nothing but community college blackface.

/it's cool; Richard Pryor said I could
 
2013-02-07 08:35:16 PM
...also the sound mixing was kind of weird. I thought it was just cause it was the first time I've actually watched the show on TV, but others have suggested the same thing.
 
2013-02-07 08:38:31 PM
I thought it was alright. I don't look forward to another Chang subplot, though. They really need to cut down the screen time of him and the dean.
 
2013-02-07 08:47:31 PM
The big problem was that they were trying too hard.  The concepts were funny and in the spirit of the show, but the execution was too rapid and there were too many subplots.  Just concentrate on the Ice Cream Games and Abed's happy place and cut out the rest and they could have throttled back.  They were trying to prove something, and were just working too hard at it.
 
2013-02-07 08:48:39 PM
Yeah, I think that's it.
 
2013-02-07 09:11:12 PM
Yeah, the Abed TV thing is annoying and I think this is the end.

Wait until the Telegoths and the Drakh show up.

/should have gotten Manny Coto for 4th season showrunner

Just watched the episode, well it was good but it's dead now, completely horribly dead. I had no idea Chevy Chase suddenly left. That's even a bigger nail in the coffin. It's like when Ted  McGinley would show up on a show in the 80/90's you knew it was about to be canceled. This show is completely off the rails.

Whomever said it should be moved to Netflix with harmon back on board had a good idea.
 
2013-02-07 09:22:04 PM
Greendale Babies?
 
2013-02-07 09:22:09 PM
I enjoyed it, actually more than I thought I would. Season premiers are always a bit strange, especially if some time is supposed to have elapsed between the last season's finale.

Yeah. The sitcom bit didn't work for me at all. The Hunger Dean felt like it came out of nowhere and was a little forced. Troy and Britta arguing over the wishes felt pointless.

I know this is just a first episode but considering all of the episodes are in the can and they can't course correct based on feedback...
 
2013-02-07 09:25:33 PM
Compared to the last 2 season premieres, this was off the walls and that's a bad sign.
 
2013-02-07 09:28:16 PM
Changesia, you got be kidding me...is it also telling that the Russos left and stuck with Happy Endings which is Coummunity mixed with Friends and New Girl.

Bedstead Polisher: Muppet Babies.


I got the joke but I'm surprised we even got there.

Jeff was the only one doing anything! Why did we see the rest of the group if they didn't do jackcrap?

I don't know. I'm just waiting this out. I agree with RealityChuck, there was way too much going on. It felt like someone trying to write a Family Guy episode.

I thought it was fine.  Was it Remedial Chaos Theory?  No.  But it also wasn't the worst episode.  If this is the best that post-Harmon Community can be, then that's too bad.  But if this is middle-of-the-road, then that's okay too.

The fact is that Community couldn't have continued with Dan Harmon, and unless it's get terrible, I'm not going to be sad to have more Community.
 
2013-02-07 10:33:48 PM
Chang wasn't in the episode at all so at first I was

And then Chang showed up at the very end, and then I was all

That Goddamn telepath plot line...
Seriously, that should have been one episode. Or better, no episode.
 
2013-02-07 10:57:53 PM
It wasn't the best episode ever, but I (like everyone else) was holding my breath, expecting some shiat.  I liked it.  I'll give it a B.  I wanted more of Annie and Shirley, but what we got was consistent with the themes and tones of the show thus far.

It was smart and inventive and really funny.

It was Community.  I was well pleased.
