It's nice to finally have a night of new TV after nearly 2 weeks with nothing but repeats to watch.

Now that Arrested Development is (likely)done, tonight The Office can officially take its place as the funniest show on TV.

Question: why is there not world peace? We are the most powerful
nation in the world with the armaments to enforce total world peace
lockdown. Let's all pray for a total world peace lockdown
enforcement in 2006!

I guess Michael motivated someone after all.

This was the closest Jim has come to resembling Tim from the BBC series. It helps that they're using a similar storyline from that show(Tim dumping his hot girlfriend because he's still hung up on Dawn).

Good episode. The motivational episode of the British series is one of my all time favorite so at first I thought they would try and tackle that one. However, even though it went in a different direction I thought it was good. Nice to see them go after the Jim and Pam storyline more and nice to see that while Michael Scott is an idiot he at least isn't as mean spirited as his British counterpart. The little talk to Jim at the end was kind of nice. BTW, Meredith getting drunk and naked is pretty funny but I doubt they can work that in to many more situations.

I didn't understand that Dwight/Angela thing. This is the second episode in a row where Dwight turned down a woman. The whole thing just bothers me.

Loved it when Michael finally told Dwigt that the wheel was fake.

I can't stop laughing at how Dwigt kept thinking he was steering the boat, particularly when he was telling Angela that he was returning to port.

They spend an awful lot of time out of the office. On the boat, Chili's, the parking lot, Jim's house, and Dwight’s Dojo.

And?

This one wasn't quite as funny as some have been this season, but I'll never get tired of Michael's ridiculous attempts to be a leader.

I will say that putting all of Dwight's belongings into the vending machine (including his wallet ) is the funniest thing I've seen in a LONG time.

was that Rob Riggle (formerly of SNL's 2004-2005 cast) as the boat captain?

kinda wondered where he ended up. and why he had such a short stint on the show....

They wasted Amy Adams - if you've seen Junebug, you'd know she's capable of so much more.

I loved how the camera went straight to Jim after Michael did his Leo impression on the boat

The vending machine opening was great as well

That was inspired. And that was before the nickels.

The little half a second "he's such and idiot" look Michael gives Jim after telling Dwight the wheel was fake was my favorite part.....well besides the whole belongings in the vending machine thing.

Jim giving a bewildered or amused glance into the camera is always great for a laugh.

The vending machine.

I knew I recognized him. Good call.

I forgot about the vending machine opening. That was classic.
