Another strong outing from NBC's Dynamic Duo:

Earl was a nice episode getting into what makes Earl tick, and giving a nice look at his family. Great use of supporting characters.

The Office was great tonight, as we get more of a tease of Jim/Pam, especially at Jim's party, and another bit of humanizing Michael without getting away from the fact that he's kind of an idiot. Plus, CONTINUITY as Kevin refers to Ryan as "The fire guy" and Ryan asks Jim about Katie, Jim's sorta girlfriend from the Season 1 finale and earlier this season.

The only thing about "The Office" is the writers having to ride the line between Michael being realistic and being a cartoon character. Too often, he seems more like a Homer Simpson than a REAL lovable loser.

For example, the part about him trying to get someone to mention the party was good. Even though you know YOU wouldn't want him at your party, you still felt bad for him.

Him hiding because an Arab came calling, was bad. Anyone that's half-educated knows that not EVERYONE looking like that is a terrorist. Sure, it was kinda funny, but it crossed the line to cartoon character, for me at least.

Michael's improv scenes were hilarious.
Thinking he needs to win-- "A gun wins every time".

"Freeze!"
"I'm not even in the scene"

"Michael, give me the gun"
(reaches in pocket and hands over imaginary gun)


Dwight is the best TV nerd character since...I can't think of any right now...Urkel??

Not my favorite Earl episode. I didn't really care to see his family yet. Are they ever going to move out of that hotel??

Phyllis karaoke-ing Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again" was the highlight of the show ...

I thought getting the camera involved as a character when Pam was trying to find evidence of a Dwight-Angela romance was a great idea.

And then the irony at the end (I don't know which kind, I hated English class. Dramatic Irony, maybe?) when Pam's gives up trying to find proof of it, and the camera pans over to Dwight & Angela's feet in a compromising position.
