    The Dwight plot was a bit tedious, I though, although Dwight imitating the different co-workers was well played. Even though it was tedious, it offset the awful Michael segment. I'm close to giving up on the show, frankly.

    And when's Erin going to get a spine. She needs to have Pam give her some talking points for getting Michael to not treat her like s***.
    I think you're misreading Michael. It isn't cruelty, he obviously didn't want to not live up to its promise but rather a seperation from reality. It's what makes Michael such a brilliant character, not because of any reality but rather because he's a farce.

    Michael honestly believed that he was going to be a millionaire, and as a millionaire, he'd have enough money to pay for all those kids tuition. What makes this more cringe worthy than even normal Michael Scott is that of course he didn't plan for any contingency, he just assumed he'd be a millionaire.

    He just desperately wants to be liked(more than respected) and so he's willing to promise people anything and everything on the off chance they'll like him.

    Not much of it. It is better though. I just think the show is painful to watch and just not that funny. I do like Dwight though.

    Well I don't get to watch this show much if at all anymore given my new career and hours.. But I don't get all the michael hate. Whenever I do watch an episode, he still makes me laugh... I enjoy the so called ackward moments that are making some of you cringe. Comedy gold and Steve Carrol pulls it off well.

    I appreciate all the characters of this show and the dynamic they bring. Not every character has to be likable for a show to work.

    For example, take sienfeld. Don't care much for jerry, but despite my dislike, he helped make that show work, and work very very well.

    I just think every actor on the show brings something to the table for you to get invested in, even if that means rooting against their character.

    Re: The Office

    I love "The Office".

    By far my favorite show.

    Definitely have a huge crush on Jenna Fischer.

    Started watching the show because she reminded me of a friend of mine.

    I've now been dating that friend since last March. Coincidence, I guess.

    Michael Scott: Alright, Kevin... you are accused of making sexually suggestive remarks to Angela, that made her feel uncomfortable. Solution: Angela, you are to make sexually suggestive remarks to Kevin that make him feel uncomfortable.

    Kevin Malone: [quickly] I accept your decision. Cameraman: Smile.

    Dwight Schrute: No!

    "Awesome!", as Kevin would say.

    Agree. Don't know what their plans are, but it was set up perfectly up to that point for Oscar to get a larger role in the company and some character growth in the show.

    Re: The Office

    Sorry for 4 posts in a row, but if I ever posted on this thread, it might have been only once, so I skimmed through 31 pages of posts.


    I have never watched an episode that I haven't laughed hard at and thoroughly enjoyed, and I've watched nearly every episode.

    But, then I only started watching it about 20 months ago, finding reruns, and then eventually getting the DVD's. Plus, it's creepily parallelling my own life way too closely.

    There's a camera crew documenting your work life?

    No, not that part.

    The Jim and Pam part. The timing always being off with getting together...that Fischer reminds me so much of my girlfriend....the trying to be friends without acknowledging or being able to go further than that, etc.

    I felt guilty watching the show because I had been with someone for 7 years, but it was slowing down, and Pam reminded me so much of a good friend of mine. Now, we've been together for 9 months and I don't see the other woman anymore.

    That aside, I love the stupidity of the show. And, now I don't have to feel guilty watching it.

    As Michael would say, "Too much information."

    Got a "Dunder Mifflin paper company" T-Shirt in Redszone RED, of course. Also, received "The Office Trivia Board Game".

    It's a "Beni-Hana Christmas".

    Re: The Office

    First new episode in weeks and it's a clip montage?

    Disappointing. Why does any show EVER do a clip montage? It's pointless and annoying.

    It's still better than that horrible Sienfeld montage they had once.
