When Han Solo returns to the Death Star in the Millennium Falcon, and shoots down the TIE fighters and saves the rebel cause, do you think he does so for a free beer?

"Jim deals with the consequences of Pam's confession to Roy"....the crafty swine at the promotions department have got me curious now, dammit ;-)

Mar 29th 2007

Well, that's what they do best, now isn't it?

Don't forget to check the times on this one! It's supersized and so far starts at 7 pm here and probably 8 pm for the rest of you.

Wily Creed...having fun with his fake-ID capacity again...

Wily Creed...having fun with his fake-ID capacity again...

Knowing Creed, it's likely he forgot his own name when he gave it to NBC.

Mar 29th 2007

The description for this episode sure is sparse. Is that because Big Things We Don't Expect will happen and they don't want to give anything away?

Mar 29th 2007

I always try to think of what kind of double meaning the title has, because it usually does. But I can't really think of anything except the obvious salary negotiation going on between Darryl and Michael, and maybe Michael and Jan. What other negotiations could there be? I sure hope there's no negotiating with Roy. He's had a little bit too much of the crazy koolaid lately.

Mar 29th 2007

I could imagine negotiations between Jim & Karen, though we've already sort of had that, or Jim & Pam, which would be . . . weird? Is that the word I'm looking for?

Mar 29th 2007

Adjusting the definition slightly, Jim has to negotiate his way through an awkward situation.

Mar 29th 2007

Fer sher, man, fer sher.

Mar 29th 2007

But what are alternate meanings for "deal with the consequences"? Would we all agree a right hook to the jaw is a consequence? What about a girlfriend's suspicious questioning? Or a nagging pang that your true love is utterly sad?

Has anyone watched tonight's reruns and felt a bit of "you can't go home again" nostalgia for the way things were, exacerbated by a preview of an episode exemplifying the way things are?

Thank you for asking, Brian. I was thinking the same thing tonight.

Mar 29th 2007

Is ST one of my favorite people today, and not just because I made the haiku retrospective list?

Better question would be, does anyone share my wife's opinion, on seeing S1 Michael Scott, that Carell since got hair plugs? Or, like me, do you think it's just a comb-over, minus product?

Mar 29th 2007

I would agree with that, except that I've seen Steve Carell in a lot of different acting jobs, and S1 of The Office is the only time I've seen him look like that, which makes me think they purposely did his hair like that for visual affect.

Mar 29th 2007

Yeah. Michael Scott might have gotten hair plugs though. Does Fantastic Sam's handle that too?

Mar 30th 2007

It looks like he did it to evoke Ricky Gervias' 'do in the British version, or just to suggest how slick and oily Michael is. I like the more natural look better, myself (or unnatural, if it is indeed hairplugs in real life or fake show life).

Like I said in the Jam thread, looks like somebody's going to get slammed with a steel folding chair. There will be carnage and destruction on a massive scale, and whoever is left standing will be the undisputed...guy who can beat up another guy, on the job.

Where's rage-filled Andy in Jim's corner when you need him?

Mar 31st 2007

Aside from the Jim-Roy story playing out, which is obviously on the top of my office priority list (at the moment), I can't wait until Andy comes back. Apparently that isn't until next week. When he wasn't being obnoxiously creepy, I really enjoyed all of his scenes. I'm glad he will be a regular now, but also kind of bummed that we still have to wait another week for him to come back (although, it is nothing compared to the hiatus, which is thankfully coming to an end).

Also, the NBC promos, while not giving away too much information (for once), seem to imply that the 'confrontation' will occur early, which makes me glad. I didn't want them to drag it out.

The summary's are often misleading. For example, the Casino Night one's main topic was "Michael recruits Dwight to help him cover up that he has two dates for the Office's Casino Night" and said nothing about the Jam scene at the end, though that's the part you think of when you hear Casino Night.

Does anyone else recall another summary that said something like: "Employees take some big gambles when the office hosts a casino night"? Do some things really need to be disclosed in a summary? Does anyone else not mind the vagueness of the episode summaries, as it holds something back for the actual episode?

(B-HJ, will you please note that the interrogatives here are a mere stylistic choice?)

(Is "B-HJ" some sort of TW(H/S)S performance review?)

I'm bumping this because I'm so freaking excited for tonight. Did that sound dirty? I didn't mean for it to sound dirty.

Apr 5th 2007

I'm curious to find out who the writer is for this episode. Anyone know?

Apr 5th 2007

Woo! Less than a half an hour to go before I start my lead up to the episode (my best friend and I always get take out and watch old Office and Arrested Development episodes). I am so giddy right now!

Apr 5th 2007

I got sidetracked for a few days and actually failed to complete my S2 "marathon." I only made it to the end of disc 3, and I'm going to have less than an hour before the new ep comes on tonight, so I'm going to try and squeeze in Drug Testing and Casino Night.

Apr 5th 2007

I know we've been doing the countdown in the "Introductions" thread; just thought I'd throw it over here.

Nine minutes! Woo-hoo! (Sorry west-coasters...)

Apr 5th 2007

i know when i come back at the end of the show there'll be a lot to read...but i have to go bask in the glow by myself without the computer distracting me.

so very exited

Apr 5th 2007

Here we go...

Apr 5th 2007

I am, Dwight. I am.

Apr 5th 2007

Yeah! I'm so glad I didn't watch the spoilers! Hooray for Dwight! Agh! "I'm so excited..."

Apr 5th 2007

Dwight and pepper spray! Brilliant!
