1. Omg so great Jenna! She’s on fire! Lol! She and clark are great together. I wish emmy would recognize it

  2. Hilarious! Clark is awesome, and a talking head with him and Pam is a total win!

  3. Jenna is so great! Her face and vocal expression when she says, “it’s crazy,” then it immediately goes blank when she says, “I haven’t, I haven’t read it.” Her dead stare at the camera tells you that yes, Pam has read it.

  4. Really good clip. The acting is more on point in this than we’ve usually seen in the last couple of years.

    I looked at the episode description to see who is directing them: Jennifer Celotta! Now it all makes sense. Whether or not she was present for this scene, I’m sure she helped get things back on track.

    I have no idea where she’s been the last 3 years but I’m glad she’s back.

  5. I’m so excited to watch the rest of the season! What a great scene with Pam and Clark – I totally agree #5/Darth Scranton! It seemed like there was a laugh track and clapping – so weird!

  6. @what’sthedealio, the clip was shown when Jenna appeared on the Tonight Show, and the laughing and clapping are Jay Leno’s audience watching the clip.

  7. Man, Clark continues to shine, such good timing and delivery!! Where was he when S8 needed a shot of comedic energy!?

  8. “she’s so great”
    pam has a great chemistry with clark… as with nellie… as with dwight… as with meredith.

  9. It’s Michael! It seems our wish (for this episode, at least) has come true. I can’t wait for this episode.

  10. Wow, this episode will be the first episode to show Michael (in the promo) since he left.

  11. what I am most curious about is who is saying “hello” at around 5 seconds in and everyone turns their heads!

    [from tanster: i’m wondering about that, too!]

  12. It doesn’t look like they are very happy about what is being shown… Excited to see the TV versions of the characters.

  13. Hard to believe, but the first episode of “The Office” aired a month before the VERY FIRST YouTube video was uploaded!

  14. That’s all JAM needs…a rooftop moment, then all will be well.
    So excited and sad about this new episode!

  15. OK. OK. OK. Am I the only one who can’t stop replaying the “Hello….”? It happens as Michael is on the cpu screen, and BOY OH BOY does it sound like Michael. Now wouldn’t THAT be something?!?!?!? This entire time Steve Carell and co. have been denying that he’d return for the final episode….and you know what? they were telling it straight….because he was going to return in an earlier episode!!!!!

    Fingers crossed like mad!

  16. I think I am starting to think this is going to be the episode of the season!! So excited. Anyone else notice that most of them were looking quite concerned at 0:05? SO EXCITED. Thursday couldn’t come sooner.

  17. Pretty sure the guy saying “Hello” is just one of the film crew probably answering someone’s obvious question about how they got all that footage…

  18. The person saying “Hello!” kinda sounds like Ryan to me…I wish it was Michael though.

  19. One thing I have noticed is that at around 0:01, Nellie is standing near the middle. But at 0:05 – she is standing on the edge – this must mean that the office must be excited/humoured about a promo – but on a different one (the one at 0:05) they look upset – what made them upset?? What made them laugh?? I NEED TO KNOW!

  20. I agree with Darth Scranton. It sounds like Creed. I know it doesn’t sound anything like Michael.

  21. It’s not Creed who says “hello” because you can clearly see that he’s not saying anything when it was said. But, you’ll never know with how NBC edits their promos. The “hello” just adds more suspicion!

  22. I don’t think that’s Michael, I think it’s the film crew.

    But boy, do I want to be wrong!

  23. Trying to figure this out. I still can’t tell who the voice saying “Hello” belongs to. As for the characters looking upset, maybe they got a lot of negative comments about the footage, since it’s on a YouTube-like website and you know how nasty comments can get.

    It’s gonna be cool for Nellie, Pete and Clark to see the gang’s old boss, Michael Scott! I wonder what their reactions to him will be.

  24. I didn’t even notice Creed in the shot during the “Hello.” I still think it sounds like his voice, but now I’m even more confused! Hurry up, Thursday!

  25. @26 Around 0:04, Pam, Andy and Creed seem to look right at Phyllis. Pam has her arms crossed like she’s upset. Then, the expression on Phyllis’ face – I don’t know. I’ll take a guess that Phyllis, in a talking head, said something not so nice about a co-worker.

  26. After seeing all of your Clip #2 comments about “who is saying ‘hello’?”, I emailed The Office producers on Friday to let them know.

    Wonder if that’s why they created Clip #3… very interesting. :)

  27. I don’t recognize that shot of Michael with the odd smile mask at 0:04 in Clip #3. It looks like S1 Michael from the hairline.

  28. Thank you Tanster! It sounded just like Creed but since he was in the shot, I assumed it couldn’t be him. Turns out, they were combining scenes.

  29. It’s cool how they’re bringing back ‘new’ scenes of Michael that we’ve never seen by using cut footage (like that smile mask). That’s really clever.

  30. Thanks, tanster! That’s why this is the Best Fansite Ever, and you can put that on a mug!

  31. I can’t wait to see what Jim and Pam clips they have and I can’t wait for their reaction. I hope there are some we haven’t seen before, like the Michael mask (awesome). Come on Thursday! I’ve been waiting forever for you!!!!!!!!

  32. As far as Jim and Pam scenes go I really hope they show Christmas from season two and Pam asks JIm what he wrote in the card. I have been dying to know ever since!

  33. I think it is so fascinating that the producers have planned the finale from the beginning. I have never been so excited for an Office episode in my life. Do you think that was Creed’s first interview and was really confused about how the camera works, so looked into the camera really close and kept shouting ‘HELLO!’Lol.

  34. I don’t know why, but the “hello” felt like David Brant to me. I know it’s unlikely, but there you go.

  35. NBC ran a new promo for all of the Thursday comedies. It included only two new TO scenes.

    1—Dwight is laughing with a young woman (Brussels sprout farmer?) at the main door to the parking lot.

    2—Angela and Oscar are on speaker phone. The conversation implies the Senator must be on the other end of the phone.

    Angela (obviously nervous; running her hands over her face anxiously): I cheated on you with Dwight. I didn’t tell you about it.

    Oscar: I think that’s it.

    Angela: I think we’re good.

  36. Does Andy say “We’re an internet sensation!”? Does that mean the documentary was filmed to be a web series, and not a television series?

  37. #42 They were watching adverts on the internet, so I presume that they are internet sensations because it’s only on the internet, and not television.

  38. @42 I think they are just watching the promos for the show online, advertising the future tv show. Also, while they could have changed it over the course of the last few years, I don’t think “web series” was a thing nine years ago when filming started –youtube wasn’t even around until 2005!

  39. I thought Angela meant that she cheated on Oscar. (And I call myself an Office fan! ;) ) Anyway, I have an idea. The water spraying is sort of what people do to cats when they are attempting to mate. Dwight will mention that, and then add some bizarre statement about his family. Prediction over. Zarion out.

  40. Just wanted to say the show is definitely not an internet series. WVIA, the website the initial pop-up ad was on, is a real Scranton/Wilkes-Barre station and is the PBS affiliate in the area. I have many memories watching the channel at my grandparents’ house in the Poconos

  41. More nonsense! What happened to this wonderful show. I tune in on May 16th to see if JAM is still together

  42. Sucks that they cut down the Pam/Clark talking head!!

    [from tanster: agree!]
