What happened to this show? I'm starting to feel dumb for watching it week after week. Everytime I feel like it's going back to it's roots, they sink even lower than before. It sucks to see so many characters that I used to really enjoy just turn into total idiots. Darryl is great in his limited role, and Kevin went from hilarious to pretty retarded. Michael has gotten just too over the top for me, and I'm starting to wonder if the show might be better off without him around at all or maybe it's just time to wrap things up.
I get what they were trying to do, people act one way in the office but can act like total idiots out of it but it would be funnier if the characters weren't so over the top. This was a terrible episode and really a low point in what has been a pretty bad season.
I thought Oscar's commentary on Stanley doing push-ups saved the whole opening.
You didn't laugh at Pam's horrified expression as Kevin cried into her breasts? Immature, but still very funny. Michael swinging the pool cue into the person carrying food was great, too. There's nothing wrong with a little slapstick comedy if it's done well.
Another episode with some very dense-with-gags moments - I think the E4 convention hall was designed to get people to either DVR the episode or buy the DVD later just so they could frame-by-frame and get all the goodness.
