I liked last week's premiere for the musical number dream sequence open and everyone's reaction shots to everything, but I thought the season 2 premiere with Betty White was a notch above the intro of Omar from The Wire and John Goodman. Jeff's inability to tell one black guy from another aside.

But my God! My God! This week was the Community I know and love. Martin Starr! Martin Fucking Starr!

Model UN was incredible. CRISIS ALERT! Troy's Georgia accent. Pierce's making Somalia sound like a vacation paradise. "Switzerland is very concerned about Earth-2." "Uruguay kindly requests that Somalia stop pronouncing it 'Uru-gay'."

But even moreso - Gillian Jacobs! Last season, it became clear to me Gillian Jacobs is the sleeper breakout star of this show. Britta sneakily became my favorite character last season. Gillian Jacobs was incredible in this episode - when the YouTube or Hulu clip is available, someone post her meltdown in the study group and eating Chang's warning, my N-Words! (I've... gone too far...)

The return of season one Britta and her conflict with Chang was the best repetitive use of Lionel Richie in the history of television.

Are we Facebooking this?!

Earth-2 is out there. You can't ignore it forever.

All of the above and then some. This was an all out fun episode. Another highlight to add was Jeff's, "No, I'm not trying to do the Spartacus thing..."

The cherry on the sundae was Troy and Abed playing Operation on Pierce.

I gotta believe Shirley is going to get some focus soon, but even her limited bits the last 2 episodes have been hilarious.

My only beef was that they should have use the song from Officer and a Gentleman instead of "Hello" at the end. Woulda been perfect, even if the Simpsons did it.

Britta was such a crap character in Season 1, basically hot hippie girl, but since she has turned into self parody, she's been great.

Not only the Community I know and love but a return to the halcyon days of season 1's on-campus adventures.


    Martin Starr! Martin Fucking Starr!


It was great to see a Martin Starr character (or "Starrachter" if you will) so positively passionate about something. "We did it."


    But even moreso - Gillian Jacobs! Last season, it became clear to me Gillian Jacobs is the sleeper breakout star of this show.


cf. the episode with Luca

Loved it so much I had to make it myself. Strangely GJ has never been hotter than when she spit in Chang's face. :-/

Which she always wanted to do. (twitter.com)

I heart her.

Britta has really come a long way since Season 1.

The moment I laughed the hardest was Troy subtly removing the lid to Annie's cup while she was obsessively squeaking the straw - that had me rolling.

Same here. A friend of mine goes nuts when I do that. I could so do him do the same thing.

Abed explaining his plan but talking nonsense expecting the camera to cut away was great too.

At the end of the first season, I saw no future for Chang, yet here he is, even better than when he was Senior Chang.

Another Annie bouncing everywhere scene? Yes please.

Starburns name dropping Breaking Bad was great as well.
Hilarious episode.
