My wife and I enjoy the (americanized) Office. Mostly because we have both worked with the archetypes that are represented in that show. Every single one of them.

Steve Carrell isn't the most dynamic actor in the world, but he's pretty funny as Michael Scott. We liked the new addition to their office, though we sort of guessed correctly from the first instant we saw her as to what role she would start to play (I don't want to say to much here, don't want to spoil it for anyone...).

And as far as the season finale goes. I won't spoil it, but everyone did watch the quick 5-second clip that occured AFTER the last break, right? After the credits (I think..)? A very critical last bit of plot info happened there, so I hope no one stopped & deleted the episode before truly finishing it. I have at least one work-mate who's DVR cut it off.

Talk about a 'Ha!!!' moment.

I've watched one episode of the British version. Not fair to compare the whole series but I didn't really get it. I don't know, it just didn't do anything for me. It's not that I don't 'get' British humor either, as Top Gear is my favorite show on TV (period). I find it hilarious.

Oh, but I disagree!

Hmm. It would now appear that one of us has misjudged you. I posit that it is you!

;\)


Oh yeah? Why don't you come over here and say that to my face!!!

Hold on, let me take out my pocket protector first. I don't want any of my pens to break. . .

... and lucky for me that Lasik got rid of my Coke-bottle eyeglasses, so I don't have to worry about them getting busted.

Just don't make me bleed on my pastel shirts!

Oh yeah, speaking of Coke-bottle glasses. . .

Back when I was in retail a young teen came up to ask me a question. I couldn't make eye contact with him because his thick glasses almost made me dizzy. They looked like they were designed loosely from the Hubble Space Telescope. I felt bad because I'm sure he got teased unmercifully for them and they magnified his eyes to an almost cartoonish level.

Yeah, her character is a nice addition. I think that the creative team behind the show realized that part of the key to continued success of their show will be developing some new story lines/conflicts/tension. The new HR lady does that quite nicely.

Warning, Spoiler:
So, do you think that Michael didn't go out to dinner/dessert with her at then end because:

1. He felt like he shouldn't with Jan being pregnant, e.g. loyalty feelings getting in the way
2. He was aloof and didn't realize that she was sexually interested in him
3. other?

Oh, yeah, we always make sure not to miss that one.

Warning, Spoiler:
That was a laugh-out loud moment, with Dwight shirtless! Was that sound Phyllis fainting? Serves Andy right for messing up the Tuna's proposal!

Speaking of which, do you think Jim would have gone through with the proposal? He was spinning that ring box in his hands for a little while there before it was clear that he had missed his moment! They're making me wonder here!

I wondered why you did that. I thought you were just being a jerk! Sorry I told your manager.
