I don't like how there seems to be discontinuity between the episodes. Like the episode from 2 weeks ago ended on Ryan moving near Kelly in the office, yet we hear nothing of that storyline in the following episode. We've seem to have lost the minor characters like Oscar, Creed (i miss Creed!!!), Meredith, and Toby and when they do appear its for a brief instance. When there's no discussion of the Dwight/Angela relationship we kinda lose Angela in the mix as well. It just makes me appreciate more the brilliance that was Arrested Development, and that no show, no matter how quirky and humorous it is at times, will ever come close to it. But don't get me wrong, The Office is a fun watch, but that's all really. It hasn't greatly impacted my life like other shows have...

If you watch the deleted scenes they put on NBC's website, there's actually a LOT of stuff with the minor characters that gets cut out. Ryan and Kelly also had a scene cut from Cocktails, too. I guess it's hard to fit that much into a 22-minute episode. They should super-size EVERY episode of this show, as far as I'm concerned.

Great, NOW I find the office thread. Anyways I LOVE the office, its a great show, you can watch the episodes here

http://www.sidereel.com/The_Office?missingWatchlink=true

You need to scroll down then click the season, then the episode, and any link that you can find.

(I think I can post this link because the episodes are also featured on NBC and Hulu which are both legal and free websites. But if I can't then tell me and i"ll remove the link.)

This season has been very mediocre so far. Dwight and the baby carriage was really reaching for the humour. They're just off their game a little. smile

Books: I agree, I've only seen the first 2 episodes from this season and while I really enjoyed the first one, the second one lacked in everything. It was a downer and very mediocre, I'm hoping the next episode won't be that bad. I mean I love this show so much, I want it to be AMAZING!!!! And why does it have to get boring now that Pam and Jim are together?

Because sexual tension is one of the things that builds interest. When sexual tension is resolved, shows suffer.

Think what the X-files would have been like if Mulder and Scully had ever gotten together. It would have lost one of the strongest underlying elements that drove the interplay between the characters.

No, thats not the case.  Last season was good and Jim and Pam were together.  I think its just that right now Pam is in NYC so we are missing out on Jim/Pam relations, Michael/Pam relations, and well, Pam relations in general.  I think she is the best "reaction shot" in the show, so its difficult to not have her around.

Darrel is still funny though.  And Creed is still awesome.

You people are crazy. The Dwight/stroller humor was great. "Don't get caught in the barbed wire!"

I got tired of the Jim/Pam relationship years ago. The less of those two characters, the better.

You know who won't be in the presidential Office U.S.A.?  Obama apparently.  It seems he's from Kenya.

So if anyone has watched the Christmas episode...


Fairly good episode, but I am kind of tired of this whole thing with Pam. This power that she has over Jim makes her not as likable. I mean I understand that with Jim she's more open about things but she's kind of not the same.

I've generally been pretty meh on Jim/Pam, especially when they got together, so I'm not really feeling all that hurt by this. I was just so happy to see a Jim prank on Dwight again, because it seems nearly the entirety of Jim's scenes are just with Pam now. Which is getting kind of annoying, because there was more to Jim before that.

New episodes start in 10 days?

Good thing I just got caught up I guess! Kinda sucks to stumble on things later on, but makes it easier to get terribly terribly addicted. Its like crack, you can either have a little bit of crack every week for a long time, or you can just have a whole heaping pile of crack all at once. The downside is the first way gets you in the mindset to wait a while for your crack, whereas the second one leaves you enraged demanding more crack... or dead...

Have to say it is one hell of a show, probably my favorite live action. I love how you can practically feel peoples souls being crushed... can't wait for my office life. Watching what comes out of Michael's mouth can feel like a watching a train wreck, you really really want to look away but you know you cant. Dwight is frightening and amazing, Jim is great especially with the Dwight pranks. Really loved the Jim / Pam tag team pranks too... hopefully we'll see some more. Also someone needs to give Jenna Fischer the "win at acting" award for best television actress to be... ever. Honestly can't think of a current character in a show I care about more.


Can't wait for more of this hilarious show.

Woo, so, did anyone else watch it? I thought it was pretty good, laughed out loud in a few parts. I didn't really like how it concluded, meh.
Creed's only line was the best line, as usual.

Incredible episode. Easily the best opening opening ever. So many great moments and lines...it had just about everything.

"It's the fire shooting at us!"

Dwight cutting the doll face off

"That's how I know you, you're from the parking lot!"

"What's a text?"

Oscar speaking Spanish.

What a hilarious episode. The cold opening was completely cracking me up. Though I wish it had focused more on Michael's plot and less on the Jim/Pam stuff, and the movie stuff with Jack Black etc. seemed kind of tacked on to me, but it was still funny. And all three of those things ended well.

And they finally updated the opening credits! Yay!

American Office sucks. Dwight is too over the top to even compare with the subtle mastery of Garreth. Steve Carrel keeps his "shouting=funny" nonsense that also can't compare to his UK counterpart.

Yes, I have the DVDs. But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the American version. Especially since the original ended over 5 years ago and only had 14 episodes, you damn British Bear! Get over yourself! omg!

The US version is funny in a different way. It's a different brand of humour. Dwight is excellent. Michael, not so much. But then again, nether was Brent. Gareth Keenan is untouchable. None will come close to him, but Dwight makes a fair crack at it.

Given the differences between England and America in general, I say it's a fair translation and a good job.

Michael Scott: You spend your whole life trying to get people to like you and then you run over one person with your car. And it's not even one of the popular ones, and everybody gets on your case. Doesn't make any sense. God is dead.

Kelly: If there was a God then Ryan and I would be married by now.

Michael Scott: Maybe believing in God was a mistake. What did people believe in before? The sun. Maybe there's some sort of animal that we can make a sacrifice to. Like a giant buffalo. Or some sort of monster... something with the body of a walrus with the head of a sea lion, or something with the body of an egret. With the head of a meer cat. Or just the head of a monkey with the antlers of a reindeer. With a body of.... a porcupine.

Jim Halpert: I'll go do some research.

Pam: I'll help you with that.

This thread needs to be bumped after that MSPC arc.

It was amazing and I feel like the show got more life breathed back into it, and it's been great... That was one of the best strings of episodes, um, ever. The fallout of tonight's episode was great too. It's been hilarious and really, really interesting and just amazing stuff for the characters... I never would have thought that the combination of Michael, Pam, and Ryan could have been so amazing.
