Well only 3 episodes in and we may have had the best episode of the season.


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
After the first half hour Angela had the supporting cast MVP all but wrapped up. Then Andy had his tour de force performance (which again underscores the "two episodes = one hour long" structure), and it became tough to choose. But going with the theme of the show, Andy AND Angela are co-MVPs heh.

Too much hilarity to name. Dwight vs the Computer is second (third?) only to Fax from Future Dwight and the Jim/Dwight impersonations. Dwight winning it was inspired, because while we would've gotten the obvious stuff from having the computer win we get more from this: reinforcement of Dwight's skills, more fuel for the Dwangela fire, and of course it let Michael have the quote of the night - "One of my salesmen beat your computer, ASSHOLE." The look on Ryan's face afterward and the way he tried to save that moment for himself was gold.

Well, with the kidnapping of the pizza boy, are there any more doubts of the Michael=child theory? That right there provides some solid proof for the 'realism' of Michael driving into the lake because he went into stubborn child mode. Why? Because we saw that mode again when, once again upset at Ryan, Michael completely overreacted to a simple situation.

Any and all doubts about how the writers are gonna handle PB&J have been answered in the past 3 episodes, but most especially in this one. "Tie goes to the girlfriend."

Highlights
-All the short jokes Michael kept making to Angela. Pipsqueak was the best, as it just came from nowhere heh.
-The Jim/Andy bit in the beginning, you can just see the anger management beginning to break on Andy.
-"Is this why I'm in here?" says Oscar as Michael struts in wearing a shirt far gayer than Oscar himself.
-Andy in general: "They say you shouldn't mix business and pleasure. Well I wonder how putt-putt companies manage." And regarding the 'thing made of ice' "I stole it." That conference call serenade was priceless. Do you think any of his friends were former members of Here Comes Treble?
-The icing on the cake, Michael and Dwight mocking Ryan and yet again the fire and Ryan's lack of a sale comes up. I will never, ever tire of this.

I don't know. The show has lost something with Jim and Pam together and Dwight and Angela apart. I don't think I laughed out loud once, except for Andy's proposal. That's never happened before.

Commenting on episodes of The Office is almost a chore for me because there is absolutely NO WAY I can mention everything I laughed at. I loved the speakerphone serenade, Darrell's ever-so-subtle come on to Kelli, Michael's continued infatuation with Ryan ("I'm so hot!"), Meredith's pelvic cast. Oh my goodness, EVERYTHING.

I even love the tiny things they do. The meeting at the beginning of the episode where everyone was watching the DVD player screen saver was just perfect. I don't know about you guys but I've definitely stared at a similar Windows screen saver for minutes and minutes on end waiting for the logo to hit the corner juuuuuust right. I actually pumped my fist in the air along with the cast when it finally hit. What a show.

Interesting note: I had the closed caption turned on (sometimes I just do, dunno why) during the conference call serenade, and it ID'ed the two callees as Michael & Dwight. Odd.

And what's up with Dwight's 5:00 shadow? I think I might've missed the first episode.

For some reason, the funniest part of the show was Stanley getting into the music from the Dunder-Mifflin website.

I'm going to use Kevin's "Hot Circle of Garbage" to describe bad pizza from this day forward.

"What is a Jim?"

How does Meredith go to the bathroom with a pelvic cast??

The Phyllis/Angela interactions were GOLD.

I'm glad Michael got his ice sculpture, even if it was stolen.
Too bad he never got his Al Roker type celebrity.

I watched this, followed by South Park's "King of Crap" episdoed and my stomach is still sore from laughing.

Dwight's IM's to "DunderMifflin/sys" were fantastic. Loved that he insulted the computer using the 0's and 1's. Brought back nightmares from CompSci.

Phyllis' use of the positive redirection with Angela's demands were great. And Angela's comeback to it ("Phyllis, this is a spoon. It has a rounded top...") was perfect.

I loved this, but would have loved it more had we had Toby during the pizza guy kidnapping (or at all). Guess they couldn't actually have the HR rep there during that, though.

I think the Al Roker thing was a play on the fact that he's doing the weather for the 10/26 Today show from Scranton for the Office Convention.

After 3 plus seasons, I finally had sympathy for Dwight - crushing blow. Although it was quite generous of him to tell Andy, "You're also welcome to date Toby." Maybe its not his fault that he grows such crappy weed.

I did wonder if the regular IT guy was too busy restoring his Corvette to hook up the webcam...

I'm glad that they finally revealed the pain that I know all to well: what if the recipient is your notary? Poor Angela...

DunderMifflin/Sys is another contender from this show in the 'funniest thing I have ever seen' award. I was actually glad when the commercial came because I was having serious problems breathing properly. "I have become self-aware" was just the most perfect thing to say to Dwight to get him going. I love it.

The bouncing DVD box was brilliant because, like StingArmy, I've done the same thing myself. I loved how everybody was in on it and they all walked out together at the end.

My girlfriend has taken to the phrase, "Tie goes to the girlfriend," and that's my only beef with this episode.

Dwight's open-mouthed reaction to DunderMifflin/Sys' "Oh, I didn't know we could use the leads we stole from Staples" had me in tears laughing. Great episode.

Unquestionably the best of the season so far, as well as the least awkward use of PB&J. 30 Rock was a masterpiece, additionally. And It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia gave us the stirring composition of Day Man. It was a wonderful night of laffs.

Last night was a very good night. It's Always Sunny should be like required viewing in our schools.

Kellie asking if the memo from Ryan mentioned if he was seeing anybody had me rolling.

The great thing about this show is how people can always find something to laugh at, and in most cases, its never the same thing.

Dwight yelling at the pizza kid was outstanding.

I enjoyed the finale of Alias and thought it came together very well and answered a lot of old questions and finished off long term story lines.
