    I just saw the pilot of this show and thought it was one of the most unwatchable poorly written un-funny gratingly awful things I'd ever seen. Was it just me? Was it really as bad as it seems? I find it hard to believe it even made it to air.

    Got to agree with you 100%. Truly unfunny and awful, even though the paper today gave it a great review, calling it the best new comedy this season. But I think it was pure crap.

    Maybe I should give this show more time, but I hated it.
    Community? Seems like it was written by someone on Care In The Community!
    Absolutely terrible!

    Really? I really don't see how this show can be labeled as terrible, it definitely had it's funny moments. NOT the best comedy on TV, and probably won't be the best new one, but it's better then Kath and Kim last year, and half of the sitcoms they're calling television shows. Plus, the guy from Derrick Comedy is in the show, which instantly makes me interested.

    Was it the greatest show?
    No.
    Did it live up to Scrubs, The Office, or 30 Rock?
    No.
    Does it have the potential to get better?
    Yes.
    Was it overall, funny and watchable?
    Yes.

    I'm not gonna lie. The only reason I TiVo'd it was because it had John Oliver in it. However, I did find myself enjoying it somewhat, and I am willing to give it a chance. A lot of sitcoms take a while to grow on me. The only ones that I can remember loving right away were Scrubs and Arrested Development.

    Its not a sitcom, and laugh tracks suck. This is meant to have cynical and dry humor and that is just what it has. If you were expecting a sitcom like according to jim or something like that you wont like it. Community just requires a little more brain power to enjoy. Once again, its a comedy not a sitcom. And yes there is a BIG difference.

    I don't know if I'd say it 'requires more brainpower' as it's a pretty simple and straightforward show but I will say it'll take some time to bloom, if it does. I don't think comedies really ever have good pilots. My two favorite comedies sure didn't (Seinfeld, and The Office) but over time they became hits. If Community is given enough time I think it might have a chance. The pilot was alright, funny at parts but cringe inducing at others. I think I'll DVR for the next few episodes and see where it goes. The part with Abed thinking he was deaf was hilarious to me though, hah.

    I liked it. Good characters, good dynamics between them. Actually made me laugh out loud.

    I really liked the pilot. I mean it's not the best comedy ever. That title belongs completely to Friends and I don't think any show will ever live up to that, But this is definately the best comedy to premeire in a long time and I really like the dry, cincal, sarcastic humor.

    I actually really enjoyed it. The pilot wasn't spectacular, but I have also seen the 2nd and 3rd episodes and I believe that it has a lot of potential. I like how the characters are developing and I have laughed out loud on plenty of occasions especially the end of the 3rd episode.

    I also agree it's not that great, but it had a few funny moments. Maybe it'll improve...

    Hah, not even close. Friends was horrible. I do think this is the best comedy of the year though and it's been getting better every episode for the most part. It still has time to find its legs and I think it will.
