The show got a "Jeer" from TV guide this week about Pam and Jim's relationship because it's so happy and healthy. Oddly enough, for me that's about the only thing about the show that I like this season since it drove into the lake.

It's not a real relationship unless it's filled with bursts of anger and zany antics.

Clearly some bitter people over at TV Guide.

Agreed. Unless they get married and then divorced 2 episodes later, it doesn't fit with my TV viewing standards, damn it!

Maybe they'll realize their mistake and have Pam get pregnant...with twins!

Thats funny. I love the show and when I heard that Jim and Pam would officially be a couple I was concerned that the Office would turn into the "Pam and Jim relationship" show. I'm happy they didn't go with all the cliches past sitcoms have.

This first 10 minutes has had me dying. I can't remember ever laughing this much at an episode.

I think that was Stanley as someone sentenced to community service or jailtime, hence Michael's line about giving him a second chance. At least that's how I'm betting Michael's brain would work.

This was a great episode, this episode works much better in a half hour. Loved almost everything, some great moments, Loved when Andy was telling Dwight that She called him "D", I loved Dwights Facial reaction. Pam spending the night, etc. Tons of great moments.

Is Jim just being humble or shy about his guitar playing ability? Embrace it Jim!

I totally agree.

If this had been one of the hours, we would have spent the first half with Michael writing the commercial. The second half hour would have included the corporate stuff and Michael disfiguring the ad people with acid.

Well... I've had a guitar leaning against my living room wall for 2 years now and I still don't know how to play it. Probably 80% of everyone who buys one ends up putting it in the closet after a few weeks.
