Review - Community Season 3 Episode 1 Biology 101

Although "Biology 101" isn't as good as some of the spectacular episodes of the second season, it contains plenty of laugh and a heady mix of plot. And best of all, Community is back! After an amazing second season with a bunch of unforgettable episodes, everyone must be glad that the third season is here.

The plot deals with a serious issue--what makes the study group the group. If everyone isn't taking the same class, can there be a group? What if one person isn't in the class? The prospects of being left out is scary as Jeff soon learns, but he's back in the biology class by the end of the episode. Still, with these questions about the group and Chang becoming security, the group will be tested more than it ever has.

"Biology 101" had two big guests/cast additions in John Goodman and Michael Kenneth Williams. Goodman's role is right up his wheelhouse, an over-the-top, loud guy who humiliates Dean Pelton. Williams, for obvious reasons, can't be Omar and has to create a new character (though the prospect of Omar walking down the halls of Greendale as students scatter sounds great). As far as we can tell, he's a stickler on rules and kicks Jeff out for his cellphone ringing twice. He's not immediately funny, but we'll see.

Score: 8.8/10
