This is the main board on The Outhouse, where Outhousers talk about everything. No topics are off limits, and it doesn't have to be about comics. All the topics from the other boards also show up in The Asylum, so you never have to leave1
It had some moments where I thought it would get good. Jeff doing the dean's hunger games was good and Troy and Britta fighting made me laugh ("Why do I like this?") but this show is too Abed-centric right now and its starting to annoy me.
I really enjoyed this episode. It wasn't the best episode of the series but it was a fun way to welcome it back. My largest complaint with the episode was the laugh track that was used inside of Abed's head but I doubt that will be back, so I'll just sit back and enjoy the ride. So glad this show is back.

Would they notice a difference at all? I think most fans are hyper-sensitive to anything that feels off because they know that Harmon is no longer there.
I was thinking about this while watching. If Harmon had been involved or I was ignorant of his firing I probably would have just considered it an "off" episode and not thought too much about it. As is, I was like "Okay, they ruined this show."

It was originally supposed to return on October 19th, 2012. About 2 weeks before the season premiere NBC suddenly just up and pulled it from the schedule with some story about wanting to concentrate on the shows that were already on the air. A few weeks later they announced that Community would return on February 7th. A short clip was shot featuring the cast of Community explaining that while the show would return on February 7th, that date would actually be the new October 19th.
