1. It’s nice, but you know Jim and Pam won’t be together until the last moment of the last episode. The aboslute worst thing that the writers could do is to turn the Jim / Pam relationship into a lousy “Friends” knockoff. Why anyone would want to copy the Ross / Rachael storyline anyway is beyond me.

    Ross and Rachael were both very unlikeable characters, and their storyline was anything but believable. That’s what makes the Jim and Pam thing better: they’re both likeable characters, and their relationship feels more real to the viewers. I mean, come on… who out there could REALLY relate to Ross and Rachael?

  2. there’s another promo i saw last night and it was only of office (no earl) and it was longer, and it was jim coming in and seeing pam and saying “Hi, I’m Jim” (so cute!) and she huged him.. and then i dont thnk it said anything about the GI but the announcer said “but the past is sometimes hard to forget” with a picture of them kissing in casino night, and then it was pam asking jim if he wanted to go out for coffee, and i couldnt exactly catch what jim said (i was still in shock from the “Hi, I’m Jim”-haha) but im 99% positive he gave her some excuse..

    ..if thats on again i would kill to rewatch it

  3. *delurking* Is that Andy “chest bumping” StamfordChipGuy with Michael? I can’t wait to see the craziness that ensues with Michael, Dwight, Andy and Jim all in the same office!

  4. I’m so disappointed no one on the West Coast recorded the new promo last night! The exact time it was going to show was posted everywhere last night. Oh well. Fingers crossed they will show it again.

  5. At least Pam is putting herself out there. Their phone call may have been accidental, but she’s tried to contact him by text message and now she’s asking him out. She’s not the same Pam as before and hopefully that continues.

    I wonder if he already has plans with Karen?

    Argh! They’re going to kill me. But I love it :)

  6. Good point Kdmcnabb! Maybe Jim just has plans with Karen (totally unromantic and just showing her around town I hope!).

    Can’t wait til Thursday!

  7. I was able to find the preview on NBC.com. First go to this website:

    A VERY VERY kind soul posted instructions on how to see the new promo. It’s up on the NBC website.

    Go to http://www.nbc.com/Video/

    Then click on the yellow button that says Launch Video Player Experience. Under NBC 24/7, click on the Most Popular tab. Then click on the picture of Michael that says Featured: Preview upcoming episodes. Click on that and there will be several small icons for various shows. On the second to last icon you will see Jim. Just click on it, and the preview will launch.

  8. Note to NBC: if you put the coming attractions promos on your nbc.com website you will get more traffic.

  9. Is it Thursday yet?! This looks like it’s going to be a really good episode! Gotta love that Halpert!

  10. So, this is completely unrelated to anything having to do with The Merger, but did anyone happen to catch Ellen yesterday?

    Apparently, it was worth Tivo-ing, just to see a snippet of John’s version of “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias…

    I’m still waiting for it to show up on youtube…

  11. most amazing promo I have ever seen. period.

    Jim is coming home! I have been telling people that for 48 hours, and people are like “who is Jim?” and I just give a bizarre smile, and walk away, I am extremely excited.
