They really took the piss out of Good Will Hunting. Fantastic. And shockingly, no one hugged Annie and whispered "It's not your fault!" over and over.
The joke of the nature sounds - "And here come the crickets!" - amazing.
It was nice to see Jeff in command of The Group again. "Does anyone know how to study?"
I thought the paint gun war would have been the ideal season finale, but there was still work to be done to set up season 2. Anthropology in place of Spanish class. Senor Chang joining them as a student.
I also feel the same way about Avatar as Britta and know when to shut up when everyone else in the world voices how much they love it in unison.
I would have to say Community had the best season one of a sitcom I've personally ever seen.

That is 100% true. I can not think of any other sitcom first year that hit on all cyclinders all season like Community. A must own season when it comes out in DVD.
I think Arrested Development season 1 is the best season of any show ever. But other than that, Community may well be it. It's really remarkable how much both Community and Parks & R, in their first and tantamount to first seasons, have grown since September. Not only in terms of developing and fleshing out a bunch of interconnected character dynamics and relationships -- for big ensemble casts with 7 regulars each -- but they've grown Greendale and Pawnee into their own distinct worlds.

Ha, I haven't heard the word "shippers" used since the days of Harry Potter, Ron, Hermione and Ginny.
As for the show, I still think that Community had some pretty blase episodes early in the season, so I wouldn't put it above shows like Arrested Development. That being said, the show has recently been terrific and they have peaked at the right time.

The rotating credits are a bit of an annoyance to me as well, since if you've got characters who have been in basically every episode anyway (i.e. Curtis and Edgar), why not put them into the main cast?
