An Open Letter to the Writers of The Office:
Dear Office Writers,
We’ve waiting nearly a year and a half to see Pam and Jim get together. We saw months of mutual flirting, a broken heart, a broken engagement. We watched Jim move to Stamford, then back to Scranton, then endured Pam and new girlfriend Karen engage in many a mope-off. And after all this, after all the ups and downs, now you are subjecting us to contrived Fruedian slips, drawn out confrontations, and a sunken-eyed Jim. Well, it needs to end. Now. We’re not sure how many more of these episodes we can sit through without tearing the hair out of our heads. Having to hear Pam say “I need a boyfriend” in front of Jim was going too far. And the saddest part? We’re starting not to care anymore. “The hell with all of ‘em!” we said out loud last night.

Last night’s episode was hilaaaariouuuus! And good to see Steve Carrell back into his old groove — this was definitely the Michael Scott we were starting to miss! Nothing like hearing him talk a big game and then squirm out from underneath the stripper, feeling as though he was cheating on Jan with the very essence of Tide. And Michael at the sex shop was brilliant. But even better than that… TODD PACKER! We can’t tell you how many of our co-workers we greeted today with “Brett Roberts… tall, queer, handsome as ever!” Let’s add a p.s. to the above letter: MORE TODD PACKER.
So yes, many quotable quotes in this episode, with fine performances from each and every character (Dwight and Angela in partick) — but overall, the plot felt a little stale. There’s only so long they can draw the Pam Jim out thing, for real. Do you guys agree or am I all alone here?
We also would like to add that 30 Rock was amazing — we even enjoyed Tina Fey! And that anything involving doll hands and legs makes us LOL x infinity (thank you, Paul Ruebens.)
