Okay, I have a question. A lady I work with said she didn't like the show because it employed every stereotype to create its humor. We all ignored her because she is a huge "Know-it-all" and we are big fans of the show, but I wondered what the "H" she was talking about. Anyone have a clue? Why would this show be any more guilty of exploiting stereotypes than any other comedy?

Prob because one of the characters is gay.
Unless the ditzy Indian girl is a prevalent stereotype.
Everybody in the office is done in a normal typical light except for Michael who stereotypes them all.
Dwights obviously an oddball but every office has a freak in it.
That said I loved the rerun on TBS last night where Jan plays her "assistant" Tyler's CD. The subtext of that scene is brilliant.
Andy can dance.
Andy: So it's like a disco cafe.
Michael: Yes, exactly.
Kevin: A cafe disco?
Michael: No Kevin, that's not even close.

Last week's intro with Kevin dropping the chili was priceless.

Did everyone catch the preview for the movie The Hangerover that stars Andy (Ed Helms)? The one where he plays the piano and sings throughout the trailer. I couldn't find the trailer that aired during The Office, but here are two other trailers for the movie. It's directed by Todd Phillips, it's good to see him back. This movie looks really funny.
