Not really, the edge was easy enough to see around her ears, plus her head was gigantic.

It doesn't matter how much time they spend with Erin and Plop; I still don't care.

I thought this was one of the funnier episodes in the past 2-3 years.

Finally a funny episode, but like mwbmis I don't care about Erin and whatshisface.

I love when you see a punchline coming (Dwight dropping the lice bomb in the car) from a mile away but it still makes you laugh.

I loved it when Dwight was screaming NOOOOO!!! after tearing a hole in his hazmat suit. His delivery and inflection were perfect

We'll know for sure next episode...she'll either magically have all her hair back (cartoon style reset) or it'll slowly grow back in over the rest of the season. It looked pretty real to me.

I'm guessing they'll either have a throwaway mention that she found a wig that looks like her real hair next episode and never mention it again, or they'll make a running gag of her wearing silly wigs the rest of the season. Even if she really shaved her head a gradual regrowth would be hard to pull off for continuity reasons, just because of the haphazard way they film these episodes.

Regardless, best episode in a while.

I enjoyed it, and likewise I especially chuckled over the bug bomb even though they gave it away in the previews.

Why is it that this show has an extensive wikipedia entry for every fucking episode, yet something like Six Feet Under doesn't.

I was making an observation by way of comparison, not a statement of work. If you don't know the difference, here are some wikipedia articles for you.

Jim's 'living the dream' stuff wasn't really funny or interesting but overall the episode was alright.

I was hoping they were going to hold Pam down and shave her head.

Kind of odd seeing Ocsar and Angela continue to interact after she made serious plans to have him murdered.

Liked the bug bomb stuff, as slap sticky as it was. I don't really get the Daryl/Val stuff given how hard he worked to pick her up, so that seemed kind of abrupt. I thought they would do something a bit more funny with Jim and Dr. J, but that was played completely serious.

The vagueness of Jim's plans just comes across as lazy at this point. Isn't he a newcomer? If so, why is he trusted to be the only one wining and dining Dr. J, especially when his business partners continually diss him.

I thought the Darryl/Val stuff was a bit of a reverse callback to the time he tricked Ryan into winning Kelly back. The time he was strutting happily to his car, a free man. This time, he's on the 'losing' end of the deal.

That entire story line is stupid beyond belief. Go tell your boss you're taking a part time job that will take you out of the office two days a week, but no worries because someone will cover your work. See how that goes.

You add to that the vagueness of the operation that you mention and you have this mess. It's a start up, but they hire limos to drive their people around? If Dr. J sent the limo, why? They're trying to enlist HIM, not the other way around.

Just stupid.

I wish they had just wrote Andy out of the season entirely early on if he was just going to take a movie roll and be absent like this so abruptly. they could have ditched him and put Dwight in charge for a while finally, just something. I don't get that entire thing at all, not to mention the storyline reason he is gone is just flat out retarded. I still love the show, the theme remains my ringtone even, but even I am happy to see it fading away now. I just wish it was ending on more of a highpoint than how it seems to be going.

Now with all of that said, I loved the bug bomb. I didn't see any previews and it caught me off guard that first time and I laughed out loud. The effect of the explosion and everything was just so perfect. Dwight has been pretty great lately, IMO.
