heheh, he's definitely the funniest member of the Office. He and Jim play off of each other so well. As long as they hold onto THAT they should be ok.

Am I alone in that Michael is my least favorite character in the show? He's just too PAINFUL for me to enjoy.

Holy Crap!!!!
They shouldn't make that show an hour long.
It hurts.

Creed.
Oh sweet, beautiful Creed.

"Creed Donaldson, 75 and Over group."

"You're over 75 years old?"

"I'll be 82 on November 1st."

YAY. The first third of the ep or so was a little slow, but once the Fun Run started happening, it was relentless. The pics of Angela's cat were hysterical. Did you notice in the second pic she showed, she had the first pic as her desktop on her computer? :lol:

My girlfriend actually ordered and purchased the Dwight BobbleHead from NBC for one of her co-workers...

They're both in love with the show and with Dwight...

And, seeing as how we just went through the entire first 3 seasons this past month - I'd have to say I thought this one was quite enjoyable...

I just love how pretty much all the characters intertwine and react to each other...

"I didn't see where it started - I just saw where it ended..."

And Andy's bloody nipples were arguably one of the most disturbing things I've seen in days...

I really wish this show would be extended to an hour. I like Earl and 30 Rock but they don't even come close. They have so much extra material it's like, what are they waiting for. Every character must have so much filmed that they just leave out. I wouldn't mind having that throw-away stuff because it's so funny. Stanley is awesome.

On the DVD's - you can watch the deleted scenes after - and if most of them were added back into the shows - we'd be getting episodes that were probably a good 40+ minutes - which would put it into the hour long time frame - with commercials...

And, for the most part - they work...
Some of them are just different variations of lines - and them doing their improv with lines - but there are some actual full, funny scenes that always seem to be cut out...

It's funny I was actually thinking watching the double ep that maybe they just let Steve Carell go on a little long at times. It's such a strong ensemble, and even though I'm a big fan of Carell's performance in 'The 40 year Old Virgin', I think he works so well in that because of the great supporting cast.

The first four episodes of this season are an hour long, and I wouldn't be surprised if we got more later on down the line. There are 30 eps this season, too.

Carrell is definitely the captain of the ship on this show, but seriously - the WHOLE cast is absolutely hilarious. Darrell feeding the peanut to the squirrel was hysterical. "He's happy because he's insane!" :lol:

I was surprised to see that The Office was 35th in the ratings with onlz 9.5 million viewers. However, it was 10th amongst the much sought after 18-49 range.

It seems that I hear about The Office so much that I would have assumed that it would be higher in the ratings.

Keeping in mind that the hour-longs count as two episodes, and will be halved in syndication.

It's a shame actually. People can't handle the fact that it doesnt have something constantly going on to keep attention spans fullfilled. :x

That's alright. Im just glad it exists at all and hope it stays that way.

I just loved that look Kelly gave to the camera after she said she was pregnant. She's so funny. And she's one of the writers I think...

Geeze, that was another great episode.

Ryan: 'You lied about being pregnant. You honestly don't see why that would upset me?'

Kelly: 'No.'

Ryan: 'We're never getting back together.'

Kelly: 'Whyyyyyyy!?'

Hilarious. I also loved when Ryan wanted to downsize her and outsource her job to India. LOL.

I love The Office. I just can't fathom what a spinoff would be at this point. And I'd hate if anyone defected to the other show. If NBC seriously wants to fill that half hour timeslot every week, bump this show up to an hour like this season began!!!

They should have a European division of Dunder Mifflin.
Headed by... oh.... say.... Ricky Gervais?

The spin-off idea sounds mostly crappy. I'll check it out, but under low expectations.
Unless it has Ricky Gervais.

Between the "Office 2" concept and the Office convention I really have to wonder what the hell is going on with this show. Its not that good. The rest of the charachters are rounding out nicely, but Carrell's performance is becoming increasingly intolerable. Instead of branching out, they should really just focus on making the one show better, before we go from having one hillarious show to two milquetoast-to-poor shows like what happened with Family Guy after the creation of American Dad.

The Finer Things Club was funny. Im pretty sure that's how you become the bottom of the office social ladder. Of course, only the receptionist, HR guy, and Dumbledore dude could pull it off.

Anyone else think Ed Helms is sort of wasted? I sure would like to see an episode built around him sometime.

Agreed. Ed Helms has had some great moments. And how is he "wasted"? I mean creed is the best character on the show and when he isn't around I don't feel he is "wasted". Too much of a character is a bad thing. I think they are using each character just the right amount.

Agreed. I really liked Helms on The Daily Show but I don't think I could take his CHARACTER in the Office for more than about 6-7 collective minutes an ep.

Actually that can be said for just about all of them, including Michael. The only exceptions are really Pam, Jim and Dwight.

That's not a bad thing, by the way. As Lecko said I think they are using each character as they should be used in the context of the show.

The Office just doesn't seem to be funny anymore. I found myself smiling a bit, but that's about all. Michael has officially become just too wacky, there's not a shred of beleivability left (not that there was much to begin with). I'm not railing here, I just think the concept has run its natural course and that's OK with me. I'd be fine if it ended now, before it becomes painfully bad. Just my $0.02.

I still find it pretty damned funny, and I don't want it to end anytime soon, but I'm with you on Michael. I haven't watched last night's ep yet, but based on the rest of the season so far he's gone over the top from stupid-funny to stupid-painful. I realize it's supposed to be a LITTLE painful, but man, I find myself cringing at most of his scenes now.

Yeah that is something I have struggled with since the inception of the American Office and that is believability. I have continually said that Michael is the least funny character on the show and the one that I could seriously do without. I would actually welcome an Office 2 just so we could get a fresh start on some of these things. I still find THIS Office funny, but when it steps into "way outrageous" territory (as it often does) it really bugs me.

Well, if by great moments you mean smiling in the background then yes, he has had plenty. Considering who he is and what he could do, I guess I just thought you'd see more of him. You know....I watched The Daily Show so much maybe it's just me seeing a familiar face and expecting him to be featured often. He's not an "unknown" to me.

Eh, you win this time. I got nothing. :wink:

Okay, last night's episode, "The Deposition," is EASILY the best episode so far this season and probably in my top ten episodes of any season.

The stenographer's reading of "That's what she said" was fucking COMEDY GOLD.

I had to rewind it. I couldn't believe that was actually Mose. He was all pimped up. Those two were in the moment, that's for sure.
The reading back of "that's what she said" and the "I have to go to the bathroom" parts were ri-DICK-ulous!!!
Felt bad for Toby... again. The guy tried his hardest to be there FOR Michael during lunch.... he tried to connect... and then Michael just shoved his food off. I howled out loud at that.
I thought for sure that at the end of it that Jan and Michael would be finished, but after hearing their hilarious dinner plan discussion, it seems they're destined/doomed to be together.

Oh absolutely! But the best was the simple fact that he laughed so loudly. It was such an un-Toby moment. The Ryan-crush part was mildly disturbing, but even more hilarious.
