Ugh, Pam's back with Roy. :mad: That put me in a bad mood.

But that mood was gone as soon as Michael started playing frisbee. :D

I loved the bat hunt and how Stanley just left work because of it. Angela had a funny reaction. "Poop is raining from the ceiling! Poop!" The vampire subplot was excellent. It was great seeing Dwight ask Creed to form a vampire-hunting alliance with him. Yes, Joss Whedon, we know you created Buffy. Do you have to keep reminding us? :p

Michael's speech was good, especially how he started throwing candy to the class. Plus he finished it off nicely. "He doesn't know anything and neither do you. So suck on that!"

Was anyone else disappointed that Jim didn't show up at the art show?

Yeah, I love how Creed was just saying "yes" mid sentence to anything Dwight was saying. I don't think i've laughed that hard in a LONG time. Stanley leaving work, Kevin running into the camera, Meredith stuck in bathroom, michaels GREAT speech ("suck on that!") and then sending him to work in the annex. HYSTERICAL. and yeah, the vampire subplot was AWESOME. I loved this episode.

Irks: Dammit Pam! What are you thinking?!?! You can tell she's already reconsidering it. And yeah, i wanted to see Jim there at the art show, but then again, I can kinda see why he wouldn't go as he could bump into Roy and plus, he's probably disappointed she fell back into that trap.

I also really liked the ending how Michael kinda came through for Pam. Really good stuff.

Overall, hysterical, probably one of my favorite episodes, ever. :thumbsup:

I thought it was an outstanding episode as well.

I am irked with the whole Pam and Roy situation. Roy is starting to pizz me off. He's been acting all fake and whatnot, trying to get Pam back. Telling her that he really likes her art but, if I remember correctly, he hated it when they were engaged. And what IS Pam thinking?!?!? I guess she is just jealous of Jim's relationship and doesn't want to be alone?!?! :confused:

It was pretty neat how Michael ended up being the only one who said something nice and sincere to Pam about her art, making her feel good. Way to go Michael! :thumbsup: I thought, and was hoping, that it was going to be Jim that showed up, but Michael did a great job.

The subplot with Dwight/Jim/Vampires was indeed fantastic.

Your right Cae, Michael chucking those candy bars. lol And him tearing out those pages from that student's book was hilarious.

Really good episode all around. Going to watch it again here in a minute. :)

The Michael moments make me shout at the television. I can see why Pam and Roy are back together. It's quite simple. Pam was surrounded by all the things she had for her wedding and was feeling quite vulnerable. Roy came up to see her and she was just looking for a friendly face at that moment and she just went with it. You can see that she's disappointed in Roy and how he's acting. Women are right... straight men don't know ANYTHING!!! :D

I loved all the bat/vampire stuff that was happening in the episode that Joss Whedon helmed!! That was priceless!!

The Pam/Michael moment at the end really touched me. :)

It isn't going to last, you could see in her face that it was the same old Roy. She didn't jump at the oppertunity to "go back to their place." I thought Michael going to visit her exhibit was a great twist, I think most everybody was expecting Jim (I think Pam was hoping he'd come as well) to stop by and check out her art since he was supportive of it in the past.

Jan saying "That's what she said" made tonight's episode. :D She's really got a Michael-fetish.

Michael was getting a bit annoying at the beginning with the magic trick, but luckily Jim was there to bring it home by hiding the key.

Man, you've gotta love Creed's fake ID business.

And why is Toby trying to pick up Pam when he's got that smokin' hot girlfriend?

Dwight was hilarious as always inspecting the house. Nobody else would give a damn, but Dwight always does. And I fell out of my chair when he popped up in the backseat at the end. :p

So Roy showed his true colors. What a douche. But I did laugh when his brother started smashing stuff. "Damn jetskis!!!" But if he fights Jim, remember that Kevin's got Jim's back. :thumbsup:

P.S. Rainn Wilson (Dwight) is hosting SNL this week.

I was thinking Roy was going to get hauled off to jail there - he sure deserved to go. He may very well punch out Jim, causing Pammy (sorry, make that Pam) to run right into Jim's arms. Roy's just about that dumb.

"How about some appetizers? Got any Bagel Bites?" Oh man, I was laughing so hard at that part. Great episode with Dwight and his tests to find out the quality of the house (hanging on the railing?!?!) and yeah, Dwight sitting in that chair while that kid was sleeping was uber creepy. And when Dwight popped out from the backseat at the end, good stuff; totally didn't see that.

And seriously, what the hell, Roy! That was craziness! I didn't expect him to start breaking stuff and destroying the bar. I'm really thinking that by the time Roy goes after Jim, hopefully Angry Andy will be back from anger managment and help out his Big Tuna? That would be a great way to welcome him back. But yeah, another great episode! :thumbsup:

I no longer watch SNL, haven't for many years, but I did watch the opening and a skit or two. I actually thought both were pretty good. The first skit where they are in the bar singing was pretty funny... Rainn Wilson is great.

Rainn Wilson was a good host. I watched because he was hosting it. I'm very picky with SNL. I only watch it when I like the host. Last one I watched (not including the "D**k in a Box" skit on youtube) was the Natalie Portman episode.

I found this quite interesting......


In an unusual experiment aimed at improving ratings for reruns, NBC next week plans to air two previously seen half-hour episodes of “The Office” that have been re-edited into a new hour-long show. Some scenes will be cut so producers can weave in unaired footage that introduces a new storyline into the older episodes.

Producers of “The Office” say re-editing the episodes is a way to keep the program’s rabid fan base from moving on … “Their loyalty must be rewarded somehow, and we don’t have the budget to send out 10 million muffin baskets,” says Executive Producer Greg Daniels. This would be next week’s airings of Traveling Salesmen (http://www.officetally.com/the-office-traveling-salesmen) and The Return (http://www.officetally.com/the-office-the-return). Greg did mention at Paley Fest last weekend that an additional four minutes of new footage would be added to next week’s episodes.

Ok, I'm totally not stealing a case of post-its from work today for my wife to wear tonite.

In all honesty, I can't take credit for the Pam pictures. My buddy at work is a Will Farrell fan, and while looking up some things on Blades of Glory, he was kind enough to share his findings, knowing I like The Office. Of course he said he needs to start watching The Office now.

Oh, and preview last nite...is Roy really going to attack Jim right there in the office in front of everyone?!

YES!!! Even though I knew what was going to happen already, I still cheered when Dwight unloaded the can of pepper spray in Roy's face. Lucky he didn't use the nunchucks or the throwing star. :D Michael explaining his "bisexual" suit was hilarious. "Italians don't wear pockets." :p And of course, leave it to Stanley to knock it out of the park. "Yeah, I heard how much Michael makes. I still think he's overpaid." :D I loved Creed's retelling of Dwight using a can of hairspray and a lighter. But that didn't beat Kevin's late warning to Jim. Not to mention it also had a great ending...

Oh, and Andy's back!!!...:thumbsup:

Hysterical episode! Dwight was cracking me up tonight and his cache of weapons was great!! I REALLY hope Pam stays the hell away from Roy and i was worried at the end. I did love Michael and his poor clothing choice too. Kevin was also cracking me up too with his, "Jim! It's Roy!" about 45 seconds too late. I just laughed my a-- off tonight. And the ending with Andy?!!? HILARIOUS. Sadly, my DVR didn't make it as it cut off at the 42 minute mark; i'm just happy I saw it. GREAT episode! :thumbsup:

I thought it was hilarious when Darrell pulled out his cell phone and said "Awww, I'm sorry Mike, but some more folks got to hear about this one" after finding out how much Michael gets paid. lol

Creed giving Michael $40 was great... "In a way you did." lol

That had to be one of the best openings on the show. I just wish I hadn't seen it before it aired. "Bears...beets...Battlestar Galactica". But I loved the bookend at the end where Dwight pretended to be Jim. :p

The fact that Andy was dating a high schooler was just plain disturbing, yet hilarious, especially Jim's reaction. "That's not going to hold up in court." :D

I loved how Dwight pushed the plant in front of Phyllis to make the office look more "attractive". :p But the best part was him explinaining animal lovemaking rituals on his farm. lol

I heard somewhere that they are contemplating making The Office episodes an hour long next season. While the longer producer cut episodes are great, I think stretching the show another 20+ minutes wouldn't be a good idea. They would probably drag at times as there would probably be a bunch of useless filler material. While I love the idea of more Office, I don't think it would work that well overall. It would probably take away from the style that they have now with the non-stop hilarity. It'll be interesting to see if they end up doing this or not.

JEDIpartner
05-02-2007, 03:55 PM
Oooooh... I think that would be a terrible idea. One of the funny things about this show are the uncomfortable silences. To have 20 minutes of the show be that would ruin it. I think it's perfect in its nice, neat little package.

The line "If that's flashing, then lock me up" is reason alone for Creed to have a spinoff show. :p Dwight calling Phyllis "Phallus" was hilarious. As well as him printing out the wanted picture. "This man is a pervert" :D

-And finally, the Flintstones sing along on the bus was awesome

All I have to say about Pam's confession is "It's about time".

I can't believe next week is the season finale.

I thought the whole Pam thing kind of sucked - it's like the creators needed it to happen, and had to settle for some less-than-perfect setting. Awkward, to say the least.

The only funny part was when Andy fell in the lake and was floating around.
This episode didn't do much for me as compared to the last 2-3 weeks.

I agree on the Pam thing as it seemed forced. She also kept using the 'friend' word and didn't state her true feelings. Maybe next week?

Possible spoiler?!?!?












I heard where The Office had filmed two finale episodes, one that included Karen (Rashida Jones) and one that had her leaving. Evidentally Rashida was filming a pilot episode for another show and network. If the show didn't get picked up then she would stay on The Office, if it did get picked up, then she would leave. Well the show was supposedly picked up so she will most likely be leaving The Office.

:( Poor Jenna. I hope she has a speedy recovery.

EDIT: Anyway, here are my thoughts on tonight's finale.

Wasn't as funny as last season's finale, but it was still great! :thumbsup:

Tonight, I started disliking Karen. When she said "Pam is kind of a b*tch", it kind of sealed the deal for me. But if she didn't get the job, what's she gonna be doing next season?

There was a lot of great stuff in tonight's episode:

-Creed talking about his "blog", which I HOPE becomes available through NBC.com in the future. :D
-Jan's "boob enhancement" and the reactions from those around the office, especially Meredith's "men are only attracted to the back of a woman" comment. :p
-"Schrute-bucks": worth 1/100th of a cent.
-Andy and Dwight repainting the office just hours after Michael left.

I damn near jumped out of my chair and cheered when Jim popped in the office at the end and asked Pam on the date. For me, that outdid the kiss from the last season finale. Go, Jim and Pam! :grin:

And Ryan got the job? WTF? When did he go in for an interview? Although him breaking up with Kelly was hilarious.

Bring on Season Four!!!

jjreason
05-17-2007, 08:22 PM
It was good. I'm SURE Jim assumed Karen was getting the job - hence his return to Scranton to ask Pam out. Sparks are going to be flying - unless Jim asking Pam out was to sit her down and break some tough news to her (that he and Karen both coming back and are still together for example).

Terrific episode tonight!! I enjoyed the tension between Pam and Karen quite a bit. Was hoping for a fight, but alas, no dice. :p It was great to see Pam as Dwights third in command as it brought back great memories of the alliance. And how great was Rainn tonight?? Seriously, those scenes with him crying were HYSTERICAL. Michael was great tonight too taking back crazy a-- Jan. And yes, I was damn near cheering when Jim popped in and seeing Pam's face light up. Awesome! And the ending with Ryan's face: AWESOME.

Great finale!!!!! :thumbsup:

Office Tally has a fun thing going on right now - they are taking votes for a Survivor type situation and people are voting for their least favorite episode of the season to pass the time until Season Quad starts.

First off was JimJam's favorite episode "Phyllis' Wedding"
Second off was "Ben Franklin"

This is intriguing, I don't know if I could possibly rank my favorites from this season. They were all fantastic. I would definitely vote for all of the episodes with Stamford CN footage at the top of my list since I thought that stuff was REALLY fresh.

Fun little concept, maybe we can keep this thread going by leeching off of the Tally project and keep discussing the happenings over there.

Not sure JMG. If I had to guess, I would say (hope) that the director's cut episodes would be shown as if they were regular shows and not as deleted scenes, but I'm just guessing, and hoping.

Comingsoon (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/dvdreviewsnews.php?id=36813) has a positive review of Season 3:

Movie Rating: 10 out of 10
Extras Rating: 9 out of 10

The DVD offers up a lot of great bonus features. There are a ton of episode commentaries featuring all the cast and crew. And there are an amazing number of deleted scenes. Each episode seems to have 10 to 15 minutes of these. It's like having a bunch of new episodes. Also included are an absolutely hilarious gag reel and several bits of footage from the Emmy Awards (with Conan O'Brien). Dwight and Michael's hilariously awful "Lazy Scranton" video is also here in its entirety as well as an interview with guest director Joss Whedon. There are a number of other bonus features here that will keep you busy for hours and hours. This will certainly please Office fans a lot.

Got my set this morning and I really love it. The Dundie is pretty huge and it looks like the size of an actual dundie on the show. Very cool. The welcome letter from Michael is pretty hysterical as well and the Schrute buck on the flipside of the cover is a nice touch. The bobblehead is pretty nifty, but I advise everybody who buys this set to open it in the parking lot as I checked mine out briefly in the car and it looked alright, but upon closer inspection when I got home, the head was broken! I headed back to BB and got another one and it's fine. The set seems to be selling like crazy too as we cleaned out the display when the opened at 10 and they had to restock it. Very cool stuff! :thumbsup:

so, i'm gonna eat some grub, go teach @2 pm, and finish the last three episodes of season 2 and then jump onto season three. I worked my a-- off this weekend simply so I could be lazy some of yesterday and all of today and enjoy THE OFFICE. Booya! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

That being said, a friend and I both predicted this last March after we saw them together at a Fangoria show...Jenna's career and fame was exploding and we morbidly joked that theirs would not be a long marriage. I wasn't hoping for that, though. :(

Poor Jenna. First she breaks her back and now this. :(

I'm up to "Branch Closing" on the DVD now. Was the part where Meredith "propositions" Michael in his office added for the director's cut? I don't remember it in the original episode. Either way, it was hilarious.

One thing i don't like is the "newpeat" version of Traveling Salesmen/The Return being on the DVD...they should have gone with the original versions of those and not these hack jobs.

Really? I haven't gotten that far in the DVD's yet, but i remember they were hysterical when I viewed the directors cuts online. I know the extended cut of "Branch Closing" is funny as hell.


This post should make Caeser's day: Jenna Fischer is single (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20612659/?gt1=10357).

I saw the blogs both of them posted about this and i'm seriously in shock. They seemed pretty happy together and i think like Cae, my instinct tells me it was just rising fame and going in different directions. It's a shame and I wish hte best for both of them.

Yeah dude I hear ya, I'm all in favor of extended cuts and I don't mind the two episodes being edited together...BUT that means they deleted some stuff, so I don't like that. :)

From what I read, Ryan's "ask me ten years ago" was nowhere to be found, so that's unfortunate. Dunno what else got cut in the reshuffling but I'm very much in favor of keeping all footage. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I just watched "Traveling salesman/the Return" and I really can't figure out why they cut these together into one episode. Granted, we don't lose anything since they're in the deleted scenes (I checked), but we that means Harvey, the Talking Sex Crazed Computer, wasn't in the episode either as i believe it was the beginning of "The Return." But yeah, I can't figure out why they merged them together. They worked pretty well by themselves. I still enjoyed them though.

Actually, I just checked and the scene with Ryan nd Jim is NOT in the deleted scenes. They also cut out the scene where Oscar asks where Dwight is and Creed says he was decapitated, head right off and mentions the bird funeral and Jim remarks how none of that is real, but luckily, that's on the DVD. That's my only gripe with the DVD set; they should've kept the regular version of TS and put the directors cut of the Return on the DVD and that way, nothing was changed. I wish I could figure out a way to burn the regular version of TS and the directors cut of The Return to DVD.

What a way to start the season!

-Michael hit Meredith with his car! :eek: I loved Dwight's comment "It's only Meredith."
-I love how Stanley just has a ballsy attitude by yelling at Michael. "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???" :D
-Glad the Jim/Pam relationship finally took the next step. I damn near cheered when they got in the car together. Kind of a rough way to end the Jim/Karen fling.
-Is it just me, or was Angela looking hot this episode? Well, before her makeup started running from her crying, anyway. Pam looks better with her hair down, too.
-Creed never ceases to amaze me with his uncomfortable speeches. His question about which drugs Meredith was taking was great. And I can believe that he was a cult leader. :p

EDIT: Oh, crap! I forgot there was another half hour! Kinda jumped the gun on the post there.

Second Half
-The Angela/Dwight arguments were hilarious.
-Why did Michael need to be half naked in his office?
-Yay! The stripper came back!
-The fun run was awesome, from Daryl hitting on the stripper and feeding the squirrel to Stanley, Oscar and Creed bailing out in the taxi. :D

Seriously, if this is any indication for how the rest of the season will go, then The Office has still got it.

Last but not least, is anyone else hoping that they sell that "Schrute Farms Beets" shirt on NBC.com?

Creed, I believe he said he was 82?!??! lol

And yeah, that was one of the greatest intros yet, Michael hitting Meredith with his car.

Michael didn't have to be naked in his office, but he was changing into his run gear if you were posing a serious question GG.

Jim and Pam... awww.... such a cute couple. ;)

Dwight putting Angela's cat out of its misery, while making it more miserable in the process, was disturbing, yet down right hilarious.

Jan is a complete nut! They really turned her character into something disturbing only because Michael is such a goof and she adores him. It's just weird. Funny though, don't get me wrong.

I love how the check was made out to "Science" and was for like $340. Also how Michael mad ethe comment to the stripper: "Hello, glad to see you went back to school." (or something like that)

Yeah, Pam was lookin' fiesty hot and comfortable now that she's with Jim. This was a long time coming and at first, I was slightly worried they wouldn't be together, but I had a feeling it was a secret and bam, it was. I loved the expressions on their faces when they were watching the film. That was great. Glad to see them together as I don't think anybody wanted more of the "will they" or "won't they" shenanigans again. I don't see them getting married for at least another season or two at this point. In fact, I suspect that would be the finale of the show?

I LOVED how the check was just generally made out to "Science" and how everybody raised their hand about knowing somebody affected by rabies as ya know, Meredith was. And how about michael being cool about things when he hits meredith, but when he finds out Sprinkles died, he starts crying?!


I would absolutely kill for a "Support the Rabid" wristband!lol

They have those on NBC.com, but they're not due out until mid october. The shirts are all backordered as i assume they're not out till october as well.

- I loved Ryan still makin' random appearances in the episode, from NYC, Michael's BOSS of all things. That's great.
- It was also great how Creed, Oscar and Stanley got a cab and went out for drinks. That was hysterical.
- I was kinda sad that we didn't see hardly any of Karen. I would've thought she would've stayed around for at least and episode or two. Oh well.

Hysterical episode and a great way to start the season! :thumbsup:

I laughed a few times, but all in all this was a low "laughs per minute" episode for me. Michael had me rolling my eyes again, this time lying on top of Meredith. The subtlety is what used to get me with this show, and they've really seem to have been a lot more "over the top" with Michael's stupidity in seasons 3 and 4.

I do like Jim and Pam being together, that was nice to see.

Call me crazy, but I think Garbage the cat is going to be a new fan favorite.

So Ryan's sort of turned into a d-bag with his new job, but that stuff Kelly pulled on him was damn funny. Still, he was coming off as pompous when he was hitting on Pam. But leave it to Jim to add that pimp comment, "I guess he can't have any girl he wants." :thumbsup:

Creed keeps knocking them out of the park...did he really call Stanley "Sammy"? :p And him dying his hair with ink just about killed me. :D

"This is THE LAKE!!!! THIS IS THE LAKE!!!!" :D Why the hell did Michael keep driving?

And then it just kept getting better with the quotes. "WHERE ARE THE TURTLES???!!" and "I drove into the f**king lake" damn near redeemed Michael from "Phyllis's Wedding".

Well, Cae, you're definitely right about the polarization. For the record, I actually enjoyed this episode more than last week's episode.

Me too, I liked Fun Run but thought this one was even better. I don't think these two episodes are among the best of the show's work but I don't want rehashes of old episodes...so I am curious about this current direction and am excited to see where it goes. Last year some fans disliked all the Stamford scenes but those are among my favorites. :)


The hour dragged indeed - this is a 30 minute show, and I've never been more convinced of that than after watching the second 60 minute episode. Not nearly enough funny for 60 minutes.

Well, I disagree on the principle of this show being a 30 minute show...cuz I like the long ones. On the matter of the 60 minutes thing, it's kinda odd because it's really noticeable when you get to the halfway mark for these because the show kinda "ends" halfway through, making it easy to chop into two episodes for syndication.

Still, you're saying that this wasn't funny enough for an hour, and Vader said that above as well, so I know what you mean. I disagree though, but I see where you're coming from. :)

I'm watching it right now for the 3rd time, tons of great stuff:

Darrell and his grunting at Kelly
Darrell telling Dwight to sell paper like a man
"Damnit Kelly! It knows! It knows what you did!"
"What is a Jim?"
"You are the superior being"
Take a chance on me performed by Here Comes Treble
Dwight telling Andy he can't date Angela but he can date Kelly..."you are also welcome to date Toby"
Andy talking about not mixing business and pleasure, so how do you explain a Putt Putt mini-golf course?
Phyllis' post it notes
Phyllis' internet research
Angela's condescension to Phyllis, "these are SPOONS."
Pam explaining that Dwight mercy killed Angela's cat and now with the break up they are more unpleasant as usual
Jim trying to get Michael to use the word Ransom
Dwight's commentary about the Geneva Convention "listen kid, I don't like you but since some town in Switzerland says so, you have rights."
Ryan the douchebag with his feet up on that table like a big wig but he gets scolded for being in there.
Andy stealing for Angela "one thing made of ice"
Michael's redundant but executive decision "I'll just wave and say hello" (don't remember exactly what he said)
Jim knowing that Pam's yogurt had expired
The opening sequence with the DVD screen saver, I'm totally guilty of that!(And hey that was back to the vignette style of earlier episodes)
Andy saying "up to and possibly including now I've repulsed you" and also his interpretations of Angela's vibes.

That's off the top of my head, there's more gold in this episode.

Honestly though guys, did I miss something over the summer? Did the sense of humor die in this thread over the summer ? :D

I'm gonna miss the hourlongs :( but I still look forward to new episodes. :)

Yeah, I see Ryan getting his arse handed to him somehow. I don't think he'll go back to Scranton, but he's far too cocky at his current position.

And i loved this episode: the pizza guy thing was great and I loved how he and Dwight knew each other.

I enjoyed this past episode, a major improvement over that turd episode last week; although this could mainly be attributed to Andy, he was on point.

I'll be honest: With what they've done thus far, I'm not a fan of the hour long episodes. I'd rather watch a 30 minute show that consists of non-stop hilarity (like most prior episodes) than an hour long show that just drags out, wears thin, and has jokes sparingly throughout. I will welcome the change back to 30 minute episodes, w/o a doubt. :tired: And this is coming from someone who considers them self to be an Office fanatic. :(

One of the greatest intros ever, the DVD screen saver. lol :thumbsup:


Agreed!! Cos, as somebody who has retail electronics, i can say that those DVD screen saver things are oddly addicting to watch. :thumbsup:

Well, tonight's episode was great!

I absolutely loved seeing the Schrute Beet Farm (and cousin Mose) again. Mose running alongside Jim's car just about killed me. :D "We are completely wireless here at Schrute Beet Farm. As soon as I find out where Mose hid the wires, we'll get the power back on." And Pam seeing Mose using the outhouse was golden.

Michael moonlighting as a telemarketer was surprising, but I loved how he still managed to bother Stanley in the process.

The "presentation" was pretty funny, if only to see Kevin explode at everyone for not coming to see his band. Poor Kevin.

The second half of the episode wasn't quite as funny. It was really sad to see Dwight so miserable after his breakup with Angela, but at least he got out of his funk eventually. Still, it had its moments, like Michael hauling *** towards the train after he told Jan he was bankrupt.

I loved it, best one of the 4 so far (and they've all been good).

It's one thing after the next with this show, I mean the list of stuff that cracks me up is too long to type. lol lol lol

Poor Dwight, I really feel bad for him. :(

REALLY enjoyed tonights episode, especially after poor outings by Earl and 30 Rock. I LOVED the scenes on the Schrute farm and Mos running so close to the car was HYSTERICAL to me. That dude creeps me out. I loved how he threw manure at Dwight too; that was great.

I also enjoyed the more dramatic parts of the episode: Dwight trying to get over his breakup with Angela although he has a really funny cry/wail. I loved the kiss Jim gave to Pam although I saw that coming as soon as he started talking. I also enjoyed Jan sticking with michael.......as she should as she's the source of their debt! I LOVED how michael was singing what he knew of "Runaway Train." GREAT episode! :thumbsup:

Well said Guyute, I guess that's one of the things I like about the hourlongs - I find that they can get a little more drama in it, which I love.

Oh jeez, I'm watching it again right now and poor Dwight is wailing in his bedroom. :D
Man is that sad :cry: / funny :D !!!!!

I don't know guys. I thought it was another mediocre at best episode. Maybe I am being to critical. Maybe I expect too much from the show that used to make me laugh non-stop and make me giddy for Thursday nights... One thing is for sure (imo)... The Office ain't what it used to be. Hopefully all will change when the show switches back to 30 minute episodes. :tired:

Best part of this episode was "William Charles Synder"

Was she the source of his debt? I didn't come away with that somehow. It certainly looked that way at first, but I thought Oscar had done a good job of pointing out that Michael's debt was due to his penchant for buying a hell of a lot of useless junk. Did they ever mention directly that he had bought any of that stuff (magic sets?) for Jan? Maybe I missed something?

I for one am really digging the Kelly/Darryl relationship subplot! Kelly to me has been the new breakout star of this season (she's always been hilarious, though!) Darryl is the man for putting her in check the way he did: "You need to get in touch with yo un-crazy side."

Maybe I was too tired last night, but I hardly chuckled once. Mose running along side the car and Pam seeing him in the outhouse were about the best parts. I think Ill have to watch it again.

BTW I thought Earl was awesome, a lot better than more recent episodes. Although, I would like to see him get back on track with his list; this prison thing and the court stuff from last season just isnt the same. It was nice to see old H.R. back in ninja action!

Well, she might not be the ultimate source, but she's definately not helping things. They both spend money on really goofy stuff like she's buying more and more stuff for his apartment and whatnot, but I do like the constant referencing to Michael and his love of magic, magic camp, magic sets, etc. lol

And yeah, the Kelly/Darryl relationship is great!! I love how he can just get her to quit her yapping and his "un crazy side" comment was good. Darryl always cracks me up, primarily because he's also so unmotivated and bored with his job and you can see it.

And Schurte farms is on tripadvisor!! http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g52842-d730099-Reviews-Schrute_Farms-Honesdale_Pennsylvania.html

heheheheheh AWESOME.

and i read a quick blurb on the Wiki and saw an episode summary for a show in a few weeks regarding a certain character..

When Karen tries to woo Stanley away from Scranton, Michael fights back, dragging her ex, Jim, into his war. Meanwhile, the existence of a “Finer Things Club” further disturbs Dunder Mifflin’s calm

should be interesting :thumbsup:

I need to watch it again (I was doing homework while it was on), but I thought it was really good. Much better than this season has been so far.

Good find on the Trip Advisor, Guy. :thumbsup:

FACT: I love Fridays at work after a new Office episode, we have sooooo much fun in our office recapping it the next morning. :grin:

I don't know guys. I thought it was another mediocre at best episode.

I'm with you on this. The hour-long episodes were pretty random and had some funny moments, but weren't up to par with the rest of the series. I, too, hope that the show gets back on track once they are back with the standard half-hour format.

Tonight's episode was good. I loved Dwight's internet avatar. :p And Michael's "director's cut" commercial was brilliant.

Oh, D!!! :D

You guys know I'm a big fan of the hourlongs and I would take them all the time...but I think the fans who weren't high on the 1st four episodes will be pleased with tonight's episode - it definitely had a punchier feel to it, certainly hit more frequent and consecutive beats.

I like both styles. :)

I don't know, I would've liked to see a bit more exploration of Dwight's second life; looks like some comedy gold there! Too bad there wasn't more time.

Second, second life.

Jim's avatar.

Oh D.

"You have a son. It's Me."

Stanley in a prison jumpsuit.

"Limitless paper in a paperless world."

This was waaaaayyyyyyy better than the last hour long.

I agree with what Caesar said above the episode was much more solid throughout compared to those 4 hour long episodes.

While its great that there has been 5 new episodes straight (with another 3 coming) we will really have some long stretches without new episodes.
