Synopsis:

Spoiler:
As the Greendale study group gathers in the library, they wonder whether they will see their old friend Pierce (Chevy Chase), who left the study group in a huff after last spring's paintball game. Jeff (Joel McHale) quickly butts heads with their new biology teacher Professor Kane (Michael K. Williams, "The Wire,") and is kicked out of class, leading to a crisis within the group about whether they will all stay together. Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) is feeling empowered after a summer at "Dean Camp" but finds a new nemesis in Vice Dean Laybourne (John Goodman), dean of the highly regarded Air Conditioning Repair Annex at Greendale. Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Donald Glover and Ken Jeong also star.

I've very recently realized that this is probably my favorite show on TV right now.

Jeff: "You know what's magical about this table? It magically keeps our books from falling out of the air."
Troy: *gasp*

The Air Conditioning Repair School Annex

Vice Dean: "I'll tell you what Dean...you bring your head down to my appendage tomorrow and I'll show you what's up."
The Dean: "Oh, I'll be there."

EDIT: I love how the first thing Chang thinks of when he hears a sound in the vent is monkey gas.

Jeff: Yeah we have parted ways with our closest, oldest, craziest, most racist, oldest, elderly, crazy friend, and he's not coming back.

Pierce: I'm back.

The dean looks like my former boss, a closeted gay bald man with a goatee. They even talk the same way and make the same kind of jokes. Creepy.

Edit: I nearly peed myself during the 2001 spoof. Jeff and pierce being one in the same.

Jeff: "Oh, interesting. So this is the year we all die."

Chang as a security guard has all kinds of potential.

All in all a decent premiere; nice to see them moving the stories forward a little and introducing some new characters. Funny references to Cougar Town and Breaking Bad as well. They went to some dark places, but it was good to see Pierce and Jeff come to a sort of understanding.

The 2001 reference was awesome, as was Inspector Timespace.

I thought this one was ok. I liked Chang living in the vents and the Dean was hilarious in this episode.

Not enough Annie.

Also, no way that Abed doesn't know that Cougar Town is pushed back to mid-season before the start of the fall semester. He would know in May from the upfronts!

Also not enough of Annie's boobs...and I don't mean the monkey.

I thought it was pretty good. The strongest debut of the evening, in my opinion.

Two brilliant lines in a fantastic episode. So glad to have this show back. John Goodman was awesome as well.

One minor quibble being that I hope this resolves the Pierce "is he in or out of the group?" stuff that IMO has been going on too long.

Seems like they did resolve it.

Goodman was awful in this episode and his acting did not really fit in with the tone of Community.

Pretty funny. I liked the musical opening and the 2001 homage.

How on earth did this thread get this far without someone posting a cap of Annie's butt shot when she spun during the musical number?

Going by Jeff's first dream, I assume he finally understands the appeal of Glee.
