Shirley was upset to hear that Jeff kissed Annie right after Britta confessed her love for him. “What is wrong with you?!” she screamed. Jeff’s amazing reply? “Shirley, since you have clearly failed to grasp the central insipid metaphor of those Twilight books you devour, let me explain it to you. Men are monsters who crave young flesh.”
The last few scenes with Chang, as well as the Betty White/Abed/Troy rap version of “Africa” by Toto were pure gold.
The premiere was a solid and hilarious effort. This episode was every bit as funny as Modern Family’s premiere, if not more. We think Community is setting a new standard for fading shows like The Office. In fact, if you have been disappointed in The Office lately, this is a good show to check out.
Episode grade: A-
