I am an ardent Community homer who rarely criticizes the show. That being said, this episode was not excellent, simply above average. But at least Community is back. It's better than no episode at all.
7/10

Good episode. Looks like Community will still be the best sitcom on TV. It hasn't changed much with the new writers so I'm okay for now.

Only two problems I see is that they might ruin Annie by turning her into Penny from Happy Endings and Jeff has lost a bit of bite because I can't imagine the new writers making his speeches or his actions as calculated as they were when Harmon was making the show and portrayed Jeff as a bit of a cold lawyer who could use his words to manipulate. Still gonna be a solid show I think.

It was kind of a mess, like a 22 minute trailer. But I enjoyed it.

I'm exactly as unsure about the post Harmon era as I was this morning.

That's about how I feel. It was a good episode, but a high bar has been set.

Same.

It was a solid episode...but not great. Hard to read too much into it, but the standard is so high that it's going to be hard to replicate.

Didn't care for it. AbedTV was lame, I liked what they were going for with it, but it fell flat. Thank goodness P&R was on after.

Okay episode. I feel like they're force-feeding the Abed craziness. I don't need to know what life is like inside Abed's head, especially if that's going to be half the episode of a season opener.

Although I recognize that the whole 'I don't like change' theme in the episode was meta humour about the uncertainty over Community with Harmon gone.

Going to watch it soon, but ugh, if that's what the theme is, I think I'm going to hurl.

The whole premise of "Community" has been lost and has gone from a show about an odd study group at community college to Troy and Abed's esoteric comedy sketch show.

I watched the first 2 seasons recently and it made me despise the direction the show went in season 3 and now 4

So wait, your telling me the tv show Community isnt going to win any oscars? It's a sitcom, they all turn bad at some point and it wasn't even that bad last night. Turn off your brains and watch it or don't whatever.

What the hell are you even talking about.

Fast nationals have Community's ratings at 1.8, even bigger than the debut episode last year.
