So is there a reason they don't use the post-Superbowl updated credits? Is it too long or something?

Anyone notice BJ Novak didn't even have one line? What was that. I saw him in a couple of shots but he wasn't prominent anywhere in the episode. And his hair was back to normal.
Who said "dont get it vaccinated" when Jim made the announcement of the pregnancy, it was off camera. Sounded like BJ

Nevermind sounds like someone already answered

Average episode for me, with only a couple true laugh out loud moments. The biggest was Jim's solution to Andy about having sex with a woman... pause... and a man.

Finally watched this last night. Not great, but far from terrible. Michael was over the top, but not so much that I wanted to stop watching.

Count me in the camp of people who like PB&J.

They've reduced the majority of the characters into single-joke charicatures. Sure, Angela's always been a stuck-up cat lady, but now that's all she is. It's true for a lot of the characters:

Kevin - fat guy
Oscar - gay guy
Meredith - alcoholic village bicycle
Kelly - adult tween
Michael - complete fucking idiot

The only one who's been a charicature from the start is Creed, and it works for his character since all he ever does is say/do something funny and then fade back into the background. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy watching the show, but I don't enjoy rewatching these newer seasons. I skipped about half of Season 4 last time I tried to watch it on DVD and probably won't ever pick up Season 5. Seasons 2 and 3 were clearly the pinnacle of this show, and Jim & Pam's situation has nothing to do with it, IMO.

I finally got around to watching this episode and OMG was it laugh out loud funny! I really think Andy Bernard will turn out gay, and it'll be a ongoing story line with the show haha. And Pam pregnant? Can anyone say Milf?!? :P

Michael's stupidity change seems to be like Homer's; at some point, he will be completely disconnected from reality, at the expense of the show.

Wasn't the video already posted in this very thread that showed the extremely heavily-implied pregnancy?

It was only not obvious to people that wanted it to be something else.

But that wouldn't have worked with the joke, since he actually does look like Matt Damon.

As for where he's from, I think he played Teri Hatcher on Desperate Housewives.
