This week on The Office, new collided with old, and small business was knocked down by mockups, thumbnails, and splash frames. Oh, and Michael drove his car into a BLEEPing lake.
Just a few notes about Thursday night comments. Continue reading “A word about comments”
There were a few ways I thought Season 4 of The Office might begin; Michael hitting the “face of rabies” with his car was not one of them. Just one of the reasons to love this show.
Fun Run starts with Michael and Jan in domestic bliss, and Jim and Pam not dating. What the …?
Oh, wait; things might not be what they seem …
In the wild, when animals want to mark something as theirs, they scamper over and pee on it.
Not to sound like Dwight, but women can sometimes be like animals.
Last week, Pam confessed her feelings for Jim. This week, Karen made Jim get a haircut. I will admit a haircut is a much cuter way to mark territory than urine — but still.
Big questions needed to be answered in the season finale. Who would get the corporate job? What would Jim say about Pam’s confession? What was the BIG development between Michael and Jan? Was Andy still stuck in the weeds?
It didn’t take calling off her wedding.
It didn’t take seeing the guy she loves with a new girl.
It didn’t take her ex-fiancé trying to punch the guy she loves while he made plans with the new girl.
It took burns that will need butter and bubble-wrap, but you know what? I’ll take it, because Pam finally had her Oprah moment!
At an early age, we begin to realize there is a distinct difference between girls and boys. They look different, they smell different, and they certainly act different.
As we get older, the differences grow, but it stops grossing us out, and starts intriguing us.
What does this have to do with The Office?
Thursday night, we learned some new differences between men and women.
Last week, I caved and watched the video preview that NBC released of Jim being “Dwight.” I immediately regretted it. I was positive I had spoiled myself for the funniest Office moment ever.
I was wrong.
After watching Thursday’s The Office for the first time, I didn’t really like it, but I couldn’t put my finger on why.
Was it because there wasn’t much Jim and Pam? No, I don’t mind less Jim and Pam. The Injury is JAM light, and it is my favorite episode of the series.
Was it because suicide jokes aren’t funny? No, suicide jokes are very funny.
So, I watched it again.
I still didn’t like it. But, I think I’ve figured out why.
It felt supersized — but it was only 22 minutes long.
