Well, after waiting practically a year for my favourite sitcom to return, that was probably the worst episode they have ever done. All the plots felt forced and not a single laugh in the entire 20 minutes.

So, what do you guys think, is this show done?

Crap. Haven't watched it yet. I had high hopes for it too.

 The studio fired the show's creator, Chevy Chase has quit the show, the premiere was pushed back from October to tonight...this is gotta be the season where the network finally pulls the plug after these episodes air.  It's been on borrowed time for the longest now.

Wasn't a fan. Really doesn't even feel like its old self.

It felt like it was trying too hard at times to prove that it was like the "old" show but it just wasn't the same. At the same time I'm willing to give the new show a shot, hopefully it's just growing pains. I don't expect it to last past this season either way.

I watched it, and tried to watch without thinking about the fact Dan Harmon left, and it wasn't bad, it wasn't as good as old Community, but it was not the worst episode of the series, it was far from Remedial Chaos Theory, but it was better than most if the crap on TV these days. It just felt as they were trying to mimic Dan Harmon's community, while they should be trying to make it good. Megan Ganz is writing next weeks Halloween episode, so I feel tomorrow should give a better idea what the rest of the season is going to be like. If you watch it thinking about the act that Dan Harmon left, you are asking to be dissapointed. I watched it, trying not to compare it to older episode, and I enjoyed it.

I stopped watching when they got spotty with new episodes, then when I did finally watch one some kid is in plumbing school and I'm like "damn I must have missed a lot" and I've not bothered since and I don't really miss it.

It just didn't feel like Community. I didn't really like this episode (I don't think it is the worst Community episode thus far, though). But I'm not giving up on it. I'm still interested to see how the series goes.

It was not good. Couldn't help but feel as if it was a parody of old Community, completely lacking the charm and wit. I laughed at a few things, but I wouldn't be surprised if those were mostly improv by Donald Glover or Gillian Jacobs. I saw a clip of next week's ep on Fallon, and I was really unimpressed. 

But Parks and Rec is still as strong as ever, and The Office is a lot better this season than the last couple.
