    This episode was a little better than the premiere, I thought. Wait a minute, did they ever actually make a decision on the raises? I must've missed that.

    Under the comments, the name suggestions for Dwight's plan are hilarious! I like Canned Tuna!

    I've caught the original "The Office" on Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network recently. Although the characters are similar enough to tell which character is whom, ehhhhh.....the British humor is a bit over-the-top for me. Maybe if I hadn't seen the American version it wouldn't make me cringe. But....given that I have, it does.

    The wedding ads aired about 10 times during the Biggest Loser tonight, and I am so excited for this episode to air. Jim's speech is so sweet.

    I'm so looking forward to it too! Some fans got to see filming live at Niagra Falls about a month ago, those lucky people!

    I was watching reruns of The Office and it really showed how much the show has gone downhill in the last few seasons. I think having Jim and Pam get together was a mistake, but what else could they do? The show IMO is not funny anymore. It's sappy and it's stupid, but it's not funny.

    As a couple they are insufferable. As if promoting their self interest is ok but when anyone else does it they are bad. Jim's gain is someone else's loss, as in Michael's and Dwight's. Why would they promote a prankster anyway?

    Btw, no real company would promote someone from the same office to co-manager with the current manager. If they wanted to promote Jim, they would move him to a different office where he would have a chance at getting respect and/or making newbie mistakes in a more forgiving environment. And if they were closing the Buffalo branch, unless that branch manager were on the verge of being fired before the closing he or she would be more likely to moved to any open position ahead of somebody moving up in the organization. I don't believe that "I have another offer" threat would have much weight in this economy with so many people vying for every position.

    Is this a joke, or a real blog I can't access? I type in beet or beets and it won't let me in, even though I enabled cookies.
