    I caught the first episode for this season OnDemand, but Community is one of those shows that I usually rely on the Forum to tell me to watch. So far we're two episodes in and not a single thread.

    I've got so much new stuff to try out right now I've been just saving up the old standbys like Community. I'll watch them later after I jettison the new shows I don't like.

    I did catch the season premiere though, live actually, and I just didn't enjoy it that much. I can't remember why exactly. I'll probably go back and give it another chance before I watch any of the later episodes.

    Still good but the season has been a bit weak so far.

    I have enjoyed both episodes so far.

    Spoiler for anyone who has not seen either episode,

    In the first episode I found it enjoyable that Jeff got a taste of how he treats Pierce. The dream sequence was amusing if a little confusing.

    The second episode was great because even though I think Annie is totally hot, she and Jeff getting it on is sort of creepy. I enjoy their relationship they have.

    Funniest part of both episodes was probably Abed talking about Earth 2. I loved that show.

    I am big fan of Joel McHale but I couldn't get into this show at all.

    This show started to lose me last season but we still watch. I tend to do that unless the show is completely unwatchable. I still laugh enough to keep the SP going.

    I still think Joel McHale needs a shower and a shave. I get that it's the style, but he looks like he hasn't cleaned up in weeks and I find it lazy and offputting.

    That said, the two eps so far haven't been classic, but they have been ok. Still funnier than the majority of stuff on, and certainly funnier than ANY of the new sticoms. Still a keeper for me.

    I recently decided to give this show a second chance. I watched an episode or two of the show when it first came out. Didn't really care for it and moved on. I hear a lot of love for this show on various podcasts I listen to. Actually, I see love for it on the internet in general.

    I'm getting disc one for season one from Netflix tomorrow. I'm going to be breaking the law and ripping the discs to my PC. So, I'm not exactly sure when I'll get around to watching the show. Seasons one and two were over 20 episodes each. That's a lot to catch up on before getting to watch season three.

    I've enjoyed the two eps thus far (the second probably a little more than the first), but it seems like the episode threads I started last year never really got much traction, so I haven't started any this season yet. It's still probably favorite show on right now (with Parks & Rec being 1A).

    I love this show. It has the most unique take on weekly episodes of any show on TV. You never know where it will go--meta, drama, concept, wacky. The episode this year that had the little musical meta-intro was great--again, so offbeat as to be unique, yet so typical of Community.

    This show had several heavily trafficked threads last year, so I think we're best served with Episode Threads. And I pretty much only start Season Threads.:D

    On a negative side note, ratings are soft this year. Even softer than normal. :mad:

    As to why no threads so far, I think the overwhelming number of new shows has kept people busy posting in them.

    I thought it was pretty stupid at first (it was), but it gets funnier as it goes on.

    There's just not much about it to discuss.

    I think it's because the forum software doesn't have any shortcuts for adding footnotes. ;)

    I'm still faithfully watching and enjoying, but there just hasn't been much to discuss.

    I started watching "Community" this season because a friend of mine is now on the writing staff (she was credited with last night's episode).

    I like it a lot -- I probably should have been watching it all along.

    It really is a great show. It's not as consistently great as, say, P&R is, but I think its high points are much higher.
