Are you talking about his mustache? It was burnt during Lil Sebastian's funeral in the season finale... Continuity!
Just watched the show. Leslie campaigning with Andy as her assistant is funny already, can't wait to see what they do with it. Aziz being involved with 720 probably won't last too long, but it's got potential for some serious comedy. Conclusion: this season is going to be good.
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.
I enjoyed this season premiere quite a bit, although it was a step below The Office for best of the night. It easily beat Community though, which I thought kinda sucked. Andy as assistant has so much potential, although I did enjoy him in his shoe-shine exploits.

Seconded about Community, though I thought P&R was maybe a half-step ahead of the Office this week. It was close, though.

Originally posted by Excalibur05You guys are nuts. Community was better than either show.
As funny as it can be, I think Community suffers from the same problem that 30 Rock does on occasion: It tries too hard at times. But when you swing for the fences on every joke, you are going to hit a dribbler every now and then.
While none were anywhere near bad, I thought Community, Office, and P&R, were all a little underwhelming. Still the best night on TV though, even without 30 Rock.

Community felt self consciously weird as a rejection to people liking the show too much and thinking about it it too much - "you've spent the whole summer wondering how the group will be different with [x] out of it? Well, we're putting him back in before the first break, don't put me in a corner!" - while Parks & Recreation was merrily (and smartly) going on with it's usual level.
It was funny, sure, but I'm only cautiously optimistic going forward. Lowe plays the role really well...the melodrama is over-the-top and low key at the same time. I love how the show itself plays into it:
