He must have some good rock and roll stories to tell...although the Grass Roots were more like The Association than the hard partying Zeppelin or Eagles.
IMO, the wedding episode won't be nearly as funny in a couple of years when the YouTube counterpart has evaporated from our consciousness. I give the show credit for weaving pop culture into the wedding, but it comes at a cost.
"Everyone raise your glasses. Well, everyone except Pam, for obvious reasons."
The Michael Scott inappropriate speeches aren't my favorite thing by any means, but what really pains me to watch is his cruelty to Toby. I get that he dislikes Toby because Toby asks him to behave like a responsible adult; I just don't understand why watching Michael berate him is supposed to be funny. Toby is such a vulnerable character; it's like watching someone shoot Bambi.

I think it would help if they just toned Michael down a bit, in general.
I know he's supposed to be awkward and inappropriate, but sometimes it feels like they're just reaching in an attempt to keep pushing the envelope with him. They can have awkward Michael moments without some of the cringe-worthy scenes of the past season or two.
Still though, great show. One of the only shows I make sure to watch.
[QUOTE=Chip R;1981909]I liked the first half hour or so. The actual wedding at the church I could have done without. All the dancing and stuff felt so contrived. The marriage on the boat was sweet. The opening was gross but kinda funny - especially with Creed still eating his noodles.
This is the video of why they were dancing for anyone that hadn't seen it. It's hilarious and the fact they took it for the Office wedding had me rolling.
When people say that I don’t know what I’m talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

I still enjoy watching "The Office"---however, I was disappointed with the wedding episode....I seem to be in the minority, but I am disliking Andy more and more.....the "youtube" wedding was disappointing and Michael Scott is also becoming way too uncomfortable for me. I agree with a point I heard on the "Opie and Anthony" show of all places---the British "Michael Scott" is just a jerk; somewhat believable as a boss---where as the American version has become borderline mentally disturbed in his actions....
Dumbest. Episode. Ever.
The whole insurance guy is a mobster angle was just stupid, IMO.
Grape works as a soda. Sort of as a gum. I wonder why it doesn't work as a pie. Grape pie? There's no grape pie. - Larry David
Yeah, I guess hoping they were going to focus on the office this season was wishful thinking.
Andy saying "Your spark tubes are leaking" was funny though.

Situational Hitting is Stupid
I agree. Pretty weak. It was hard for me to put down my son's Jr. High science book while reading about the atmosphere for this one.
