I don't know guys. The last time Jim revealed a secret to Pam things really went haywire and it eventually led to Seasons 6, 7, 8, and 9.

This actually sounds pretty funny.

Dwight (Rainn Wilson) teaches Erin (Ellie Kemper) the Dothraki language to impress her boyfriend’s educated family

This does not.

Nellie (Catherine Tate) tries to convince Pam (Jenna Fischer) that Jim (John Krasinski) is having an affair,

Concept could be funny, but I just don't get Catherine Tate.

Jim reveals his secret in the warehouse.

He has a love child with Darryl's girlfriend.

C'mon, that's better than him telling Pam that he made another major decision without telling her, and her thinking it's wonderful. I can see it now - as Pam lays a big one on Jim: "You changed a job and risked the financial security of your family without even mentioning it to your wife, Jim! How sweet!"

So they showed a comercial for this tonight. Apparently Jim gets an asian guy to stand in for him at the office complete with putting his picture in the family photo with pam and the kids and letting Pam kiss him at one point. Not sure if this is just a prank on Dwightor part of the taking a new job story.

Did anybody else like this? Did anyone else watch it? I kinda enjoyed this one. I really, really liked the cold open and thought that was one of Jim's best pranks yet. I'm long past the days of saving episodes on the DVR, but I did watch this one twice before I deleted it.

Oct 5th 2012

I still haven't watched it. Maybe tonight.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. There is still a bit too much "wacky" for my tastes, but they are getting better at dialing things back. It looks like they are going to turn Andy into a real douche which I think is an excellent way to go.

Oct 5th 2012

I thought it was okay. Some of the stories are still a little dopey, but they seem to be executed better. For instance, they ended the Erin/Dothraki thing halfway through the episode. Last year that could've been an A plot.

I thought it was pretty corny. I think STT's right about the execution, though.
