Another awesome B.J. Novak Joint tonight, with him booking himself as The Ultimate Warrior, Dwight as Jake Roberts and Cousin Mose as The Undertaker. Plus the first Awkward Jam moment of the season, but not as awkward as the Jelms duet of Lovefool.

Poor Stanley...it's the only day of the year that he likes. I like them all, though.

The ending just killed me. I can't believe I actually care about fictional people like Jim & Pam.

Beware of flash floods.

Oh geez, I thought this was a pretty horrid episode. Once again nothing Dwight did was funny at all and Michael was off tonight. The other characters in Scranton are good for one-liners but nothing really else so with jim gone and Michael off the Scranton related stuff was dull. The scenes at the Stamford branch are great though.

    Michael was off tonight.


In hindsight, it was brilliant that Carell played the whole episode fairly straight just so that he could have the mother of all sugar rushes later on.

That, folks, is called building up to your highspots.

Except Jim and Pam are actually likable characters and I want them to get together. I know the show did really well and all, but I always thought Ross and Rachel were such awful, selfish characters that I hoped something bad happened to them. I just hope they don't drag the Jim and Pam relationship out for too long. As good as it is now, if they drag their heels for too long it'll lose all its heat.

I know it's necessary, but the whole Jim & Pam relationship take away from the show for me at times, and this episode was one of them.

The cousin popping out with "FEAR" written on his shirt was hilarious, as was Dwight and Ryan's bonding in throwing eggs.

The opening scene with Dwight and Ryan was my favorite when Dwight started with "Brainteaser" and Ryan started answering the questions before Dwight could finish, causing frustration on Dwight's part. I laughed pretty loud.

I also loved seeing Stanley happy for the first time ever. Him and Michael teaming up to keep hyllis from cutting the line was great.

And Pam showing what Michael has done all day killed me.

I thought it was a great episode. And Love Fool stayed in my head all night.

Yeah Daphne and Niles really set the world on fire once they were finally together. Screw Jim/Pam anyway, it's all about Jim/Karen or should I say "Kim."

It's been said a lot, but the #1 thing this show does to really distinguish itself from the perfection that was the U.K. series and be its own man is the amazing assortment of secondary characters. I will take that a step further and say how much I love the unique-to-this-Office relationships between those characters, like Dwight/Angela, Michael/Ryan, Ryan/Kelly, and now Dwight/Ryan.

Ed Helms was acting his heart out.

Agreed. As much as I want to see Jim and Pam get some kind of resolution, I definately want to see what happens between Jim and Karen just because I haven't had 30+ episodes to get used to her.

Plus: There's now a cool love rhombus involving Karen/Jim/Pam/Roy/Toby (and maybe even Dwight/Angela, considering her crush on Roy-Boy).

And gang, we're just entering the woods. Scuttlebutt is that the comfortable Scranton/Stamford dynamic is about to get a whole lot murkier.

Someone needs to chart this out. This seems like it could almost be as complicated as some of the Lost relationship charts.

This was one of those episodes where if you love Dwight's eccentricity, then you'll love the episode, but if you hate Dwight's eccentricity, then it kills the episode. I enjoy Dwight, but this was approaching my threshold for him. I did love Dwight and Ryan's interpretations of Michael's greatest fear, though.

Stanley taking the pretzel so seriously was hysterical. As was being able to predict Michael's sugarrush, and then the subsequent crash, once he ordered his toppings. Could all that stuff actually fit (and stay) on a pretzel? And what was Bob Vance of Vance Refrigeration doing there? Does he work in the building?

Add me to the list of people starting to enjoy 'Kim'.

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
I know what's going to cause the 'murkiness', but I have no idea how that will all play out. I would bet that we'll probably get the first Kim date and then all hell will subsequently break loose like the very next day.

Vance Refrigeration and Bob Vance of Vance Refrigeration are located on the same floor as the Dunder-Mifflin offices.

I'd stopped watching Frasier before they pulled the trigger on that, but your point is well taken. I just don't want them to try to milk the will they/won't they angle until I stop caring about it. I think I'd rather have them put Jim and Pam together and have it flop then have them wait until after I've lost interest. Of course, the angle still has a lot of heat in it, so it's not like I want them to do it next episode.

Best part of Jim and Pam: Everyone's been there. Everyone's had the awkward silence on the phone while trying to make pleasant small talk, and trying to be friendly...while not caving at the sound of their voice.

He was already introduced as that in the convention episode, when Chip's character, Jim, Michael, and Dwight had their first encounter in the hotel room.

This is exactly right. I like Dwight, but a whole heaping helping of Dwight is a little too much. My wife likens him to George Costanza. She really hated him and it ruined Seinfeld for her. She really barely tolerates this show, but I laugh out loud so many times, she regains interest. Stanley is the man.

The best way to describe this show or at least the premiere is they shoved Giant sized X-Men into a preview comic for Spiderman. There is way too much going on the show. Instead of writing paragraph after paragraph of each plot point. I will bullet point....
