I liked the first episode. It was funny and shows promise to continue going in that direction.

I kind of felt that way too. I think it has promise, but the first episode wasn't all that funny I didn't think. I certainly hope Chevy gets a lot more.

I thought it was terrible actually. I didn't laugh once during the whole thing. I'm hoping it will be a situation where it takes it a few episodes to find its footing and then picks up because this is one of the new shows I was looking forward to, but man this was a terrible start.

As with Glee, you guys let me know if this one gets good.

I really didn't care for any of the study group supporting characters, they seemed way too broadly drawn, hopefully they'll become actual people as the series progresses.  John Oliver was great and I thought McHale and the lead girl had a decent chemistry.

I liked it.  More than Glee, for sure.

I laughed a few times and smiled a bunch, too, once I got into the show's rhythm.  I especially liked:

"You remind me of my self at your age."
"I deserve that."

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I thought everything around the study club table was terrible, but I'll try again next week.

I enjoyed the Breakfast Club speech and the subsequent Dirty Dancing reference.  And the pencil break.  And little moments like Abed trying to put the pencil back together.  And other stuff.

I'm coming back next week for Abed. And my masochistic loyalty to Chevy Chase.
