What?

Basically, a bunch of stupid stuff happens.

I wish this was just product placement and the whole episode was set at a local Target.

I watched this show on a Thursday for the first time in a while, and it wasn't too bad. I mean, it wasn't very good, but it seemed to have a familiar vibe or a hint of a familiar vibe. Given the plot summary, it could have been much, much worse. Wasn't Greg Daniels supposed to be taking over for the last season. I could almost swear it had a feel, almost a heavy handed one at that, of the early seasons. The card tower reminded me of Office Olympics. Pam losing a customer was like the betting episode when Mindy explained Netflix. And by focusing on Dwight's weird friend, I think they defused a lot of the inevitable awfulness of the Angela-Oscar storyline. Jim is back to being hapless, but whatever. It was a C story. How much is the young guy supposed to be young Jim? Like you read about, huh. Anyway, not too shabby.

I thought today was Friday. Huh. Gotta be honest, I'm disappointed. Come on, weekend. Sadly, I care about the weekend about a thousand times more than this show. I don't even have the DVR set up for it. Sad, right?

Oh! And I did see your comment on Gray's (Grey's?) Anatomy on twitter, Bri, and I thought it was hilarious, but I didn't want to look lame on my own page by replying with "Hahaha!" So, here you go, on this site instead. I wish I had something clever to say...but I don't. Sry.

Holy merciful crap. I liked it.

Pete and Erin! Pete and Erin! Pete and Erin!

The last three episodes have made me laugh which is a change. Less Andy helps with that.

Pete and Erin! Pete and Erin! Pete and Erin!

It's Peterin.

I didn't get to watch the episode yet. Did the Pete/Erin Index go up or down?

Nov 30th 2012

WAY UP.

Nov 30th 2012

I liked it.

Thank you, Greg Daniels, for making me look forward to watching this show again.

Nov 30th 2012

I liked it, too. It really felt like the old days in many ways. I really liked the closing, and laughed loudly at drunk Phyllis.

There's wine in here!

Hey, you (poke).

Nov 30th 2012

That was pretty good. I loved the "Sexual Harassment" callback at the end.

And Pam in jeans.

Nov 30th 2012

Do you think the closing was improved? It kinda seemed like it might have been.

I finally watched this and it was actually not the worst. Erin & Pete are the new stand-ins for the Pam & Jim of the past.
