I have literally spent the last 3+ months watching seasons 1-4 on DVD and having 3-3:30am marathons Monday-Friday catching up.

I am now ready to watch this live. I am an official new Office fan. I can't believe I missed out on this show for so long.

Glad to see another fan on board! I have spent all summer (countless hours) watching the dvds time and again, commentaries, deleted scenes, etc. waiting for this day. 8 pm can't come any sooner!

A spoiler about how the show is supposedly structured for tonight:

Spoiler:
Apparently, it takes place over 8 weeks, and each "segment" is one week

Glad to have it back.

I kept meaning to watch the webisodes (man, do I hate that word) over the summer, but kept forgetting. I think I'll watch them all this evening.

Great episode. Much better than the one hour shows from last year. The right amount of humor and sweetness.

That's the way to have a double-sized premiere episode, NBC. Get that out to other shows ASAP.

I'm glad they avoided the temptation to make two thirty minute episodes to pass off as an hour long. That was the only real weakness of last year IMHO.

Well done, Office crew.
