  1. That episode was AMAZING! It was SO nice to see old clips from past seasons. I have to admit, as soon as they started showing the JAM montage I got a little teary. I love this show so much! :)

  2. So I guess we got to see the much-rumored clip show… Did anyone else know to be expecting something like that tonight?

  3. Loved reliving old moments! But one question, aren’t Jim and Michael supposed to be equals? Is he the top man now because of seniority?

  4. I don’t know how to rate this episode. I mean it had new few scenes, and even fewer were comedic. If I include the footage I’ll give it a 10.

  5. I really didn’t like this episode. How disappointing. It kind of proves that they’re running out of ideas, and it’s breaking my heart. The only good stuff was the JAM Montage. I felt like this episode should’ve been a webisode.. not an actual episode.

  6. Well it wasn’t really a “new episode” but I loved it just the same. I like how they showed some deleted scenes (like the full Lazy Scranton vid, and the “that’s what she said” scene from Beach Games). This episode pretty much summarized why I love this show so much. :D

  7. This episode was a nice trip down memory lane. Did anyone see Jim at all? Wasn’t he in a talking head with Pam?

  8. OK, so it was a best-of episode. SO WHAT! What an ingenious way to incorporate it into the storyline! I enjoyed it and appreciate the reminder of why I love this show, through thick and thin. —cheers/dom

  9. This is such an awesome episode! The clips were perfect, and I’ll now be going to sleep singing “Scranton, what, the electric city” LOL What’s not to love about a clip show that also moves the plot along?

  10. Ok… Since this is a clip show and Pam and Jim’s baby is coming soon does that mean that this may be the last season??? I might cry if it is…

  11. I love how Ryan was still in the closet. The last 2 minutes when they played the Dunder Mifflin jingle made me tear, not going to lie. It made me feel like the show is ending, I know it’s not though. I also liked the idea behind the episode, but the last 2 minutes made the show for me.

  12. Are the writers on strike again? This season has been a bust so far, but this episode was the worst. Like we don’t get enough recaps from all the repeats that are aired constantly. I loved all the earlier seasons and thought that the whole show was extremely original and clever. And the cast was great. Please don’t go out like this.

  13. This episode was weird for me, wish the characters would have said something about the past, that would have been funnier.

    I am just not a fan of this format.

  14. Such a funny episode. They showed a lot of good clips all together. Sad about no current Jim! Where was Stanley?
