A pilot so good, you have to wonder if it's all down hill from here...
23 February 2019 | by soundphurySee all my reviews

No long, detracting exposition. No having to tediously get to know each and every character's backstory as if the episode had been written by an OCD completionist. Just a funny and smart start to a great series.

Jeff/Britta storyline: B+

Jeff/Duncan storyline: A+

Study Group storyline: B+

Overall episode grade: 92%
