I wasn't too fond of the first half, but Andy in the second saved it. Even though he brought it on himself, he had a valid point after being lectured by Pete and Erin, and brining in their exes as payback was brilliant. I was very happy to see Gabe back. He always made me laugh and I was hoping they'd keep him. All he needs is a couple of lines per episode. I doubt he'll stick around but I'm glad he made at least one more appearance.

I don't really care much about Jim and Pam, to be honest. Obviously they'll be together but I can't get interested in their drama. I think Dwight and Angela will end up together, which would be good.

I agree with pretty much all of this- especially the jim/pam crap.

gabe was one of the most underrated characters in the show. they never quite used the guy to his potential (the actor himself is hilarious) but you see bits and pieces on the DVD extras (lines that were improved/cut, bloopers, etc) “You don’t want to mess with me. I’m taking karate classes online…” etc etc

I'll have to check out those extras. Gabe has always made me laugh.

I can't believe I forgot Toby's meeting with the Scranton Strangler. When he came out on the stretcher I couldn't stop laughing. Second funniest moment of the season for me (the funniest being Dwight trying to learn how to sell to women and saying "just sit back and when I'm finished, it's over...").

No episode until March 28th. Looks like it's kind of like a mid season break for NBC.

They do seem to take season breaks at quite random moments, multiple times during the season. Very annoying.

So I guess that they'd air the last eight straight through then?

I'd rather have a few now then take a few weeks off before airing the last six or whatever. Oh well.

NEW OFFICE this Thursday: Looks like "The Farm" pilot is going to air and is reincorporated into an Office Episode:

http://www.officetally.com/the-office-the-farm

Short synopsis says this:

Quote:
Dwight and Oscar attend a shocking funeral at Schrute Farms
And then it appears the show will be gone until early April...

Well, good thing they didn't go through with the spinoff.

That was terrible...

I thought it was great

But if this was turned into a spinoff, it would bomb so bad. Much like everything else on NBC these days.

I thought that show could have had major potential, if done right.

Weird episode, the Farm pilot didn't really flow well with the office in any way. Jim was at his desk at the beginning, Oscar disappeared from the farm halfway through...

I hated the office part, but thought the farm part was solid. I'm not sure I could ever see a series out of it, but I enjoyed it. Was nice seeing Dwight act like a father to his sisters kid.

Always good to see Badger from Breaking Bad have another appearance.

Only parts I found funny was the first scene and the Kevin and Andy moment after they had the cupcakes.

edit: I meant Kevin, not Dwight.

Yeah. Good idea by NBC to put the axe to any potential show that will come out of the farm. I suppose we see where Dwight ends up after Dunder Mifflin though.

I've never seen such a show as polarizing. Reading comments, there are a large number of people who hated the farm concept, and as well, a large number of people who thought it was fantastic, and wondered how it would have fared as a series.

I definitely wouldn't watch it. Dwight's could carry the show so much. I don't find the other characters funny at all. I may be wrong, it could've improved, but I don't find the concept very interesting.

I haven't seen many other than a random person here or there say they would happily watch The Farm if they went through with it. I would continue watching more crappy Office episode if they weren't closing it out this season and the quality didn't improve, but I would not watch The Farm.

Yeah. The Farm seemed like an awful idea for a spin-off, and the execution of that episode leads me to believe it wasn't redeemable.

I laughed really hard when Dwight kicked off the casket lid and fired a few rounds into the casket. Didn't realize it was a potential spin-off but I really liked the episode.

So Saturday was the day "The Office" wrapped up filming. But, now, News is coming out that there was a "Super Secret" filming on Sunday.

Steve Carrell has repeatedly denied being part of the Office this year, but I've always been skeptical of that.

Everyone playing it quiet to keep the surprise coming would be a nice little touch I think.

As for the audition sheet, I'm pretty okay with how it turned out. John on The Office as Jim, and Adam on Parks and Rec as Ben
