I enjoyed the first episode off the bat. Nothing really awesome about it...as others have said it was a pretty average episode, some funny moments, seeding of the seasons possible theme, etc. Britta and Troy have progressed faster than I thought...and I liked Jeff's meta comment about it. Gillian Jacobs looks hotter than she has been on the series. Annie rethinking her career path was interesting. Abed TV was pretty cool. Chevy really does seem bored with Pierce at this point. Fred Willard was great as "alternate Pierce".
