Great episode that found the balance between plot advancement/inroduction (Roy making a "I have two months left to live" face when Michael brings up the wedding, the possible WE ARE THE UNION angle, etc) and comic whomp-em between Kevin getting not one not two but THREE lines, Dwight's "The Others" reference, Kelly stealing the show at the girls meeting and Michael giving us a full sample of his Homer Simpson Gene with the forklift.

Angela: "She aspires to be a whore!"

Michael "Everyone loves pizza. White people love pizza, black people love pizza. Do black people like pizza?" (then gives an affirming look to camera as Daryl and friend munch down)

Kelly gave an AWESOME look to the camera after her second base question to Jan.

I like how many of the characters' names are also the actors' actual names (Phyllis, Oscar, Angela, etc.)

Despite having only six episodes, I can recommend the Season One DVD. Lots of deleted scenes which seem to be cut for time, not because they weren't funny.
I'm actually anxious for this season to end so I get my hands on a Season 2 DVD. (I suppose I could record the shows as they air, but it's just not the same. Fast-forwarding and rewinding tapes is like, soooo ten years ago.)

I miss the show half the time so I download it from i-tunes for $2 a pop. Good call on the season 1 dvd, I didn't know about all the deleted stuff.

On to this weeks ep, written by Ryan the fire guy so you know it's gonna be good. Good stuff all around especially with Kelly, Kevin, and Toby "He's a guy, I guess." Also good stuff with Roy sayin how Halpert's a good guy cause he's Pam's talky friend and Dwight's "then you got to take em to church the next morning, gas is not free." Too funny.

"You would have thought Roy would be the foreman, but he's not."

This makes me laugh so hard, and I'm not even 100% positive why. Is Michael saying you'd think the white guy would be the foreman, or is he being all meta, since Roy is a more developed character you'd think he'd be the boss? Or am I finding funny where there is none?
Roy.

Kevin's line about having Jim's back was hysterical. I was also glad to see Patrice O'Neal back on the show. The end result of the forklifts (all three shelves attached to it) was a great visual.

The promos for the show kind of bugged me, because they made it seem like Jim was going to profess his love to Pam or something like that. It gets people to tune in, I guess, but it's also like those comic book covers that show a scene that's not in the issue. They make me feel duped.

This season is going by too fast.

That's my only complaint about The Office. I really, REALLY, hope they've thought out how to deal with the whole Jim-Pam thing. They've made that such a predominant part of the show that if they screw it up...

Still, the last scene after Michael's "sexual tension" line was pretty great.

here is a review from imdb user averagelatchkeykid:

"The Office is the best show I have ever seen. My family agrees. Except my sister- but, then again, she kicks puppies. All the characters in the show are insanely developed and although I am a straight man, I still am in love with the character Jim. Sometimes after an episode is over, I wish I could just go into a hibernation like state and wake up a week later and watch some more. Life sucks when The Office stops. It really is that good. No other television show, or even movie, to me is even good enough to compare it to. You feel connections with the characters and laugh hard while watching this show. There has never been an instant that I didn't like- every single thing is done perfectly. It could not be any better than it is. God couldn't do better if he tried to make a TV show. No offense, God. You couldn't."

Pretty much sums up how I feel, 'cept I don't have a sister who kicks puppies.

THIS AIN'T OVER, MICHAEL!

Possibly the confusion is from the fact that for a foreman he was awfully slow in replacing the Packer-tinged carpet whereas Extreme Home Makeover could have done it in under an hour.

Another great show this week. I agree, the Pam-Jim story is very good right now, as was the Tim-Dawn storyline from the original series. Hopefully they can keep it going without it getting old or dragging out. I expect a tease of them getting together on the season finale, but then back to being "just friends" by next season (assuming it is brought back). They need to be careful, because many shows have jumped the shark after two characters finally get together. Moonlighting for example. Or (worse) Friends.

I like how they've made Roy completely different from Lee in that he's not a complete assh*le. Roy just doesn't GET Pam the way Jim does. He's not a BAD guy, he's just the wrong guy.

I also really, really enjoy the continual showcase of the secondary players: Kelly ("How can somebody so beautiful be so sad?", Kevin ("I've got your back."), Toby (covertly sneaking into the office) and the others.

And the subplots are MOUNTING: The impending branch shutdown (either in Scranton or Stamford), the Pam/Jim/Roy triangle, the ongoing Jan/Michael romance/feud, and the other minor ones.
