I guess they're opening up the possibility of new Jim + Erin? Feel like they've gone the Jim/Secretary route before though

This show does a great job of introducing female characters who absolutely neuter the funny from their male partners.

Holly killed Michael's funny. Pam killed Jim's. Now Nellie is killing Dwight's.

I'm assuming this episode was a set up for the next episode in which there will be jokes and such.

I thought Nellie and Dwight were pretty funny together.

Go Roy and Creed. I'll never understand why they made Erin an absolute moron, and not really tonight, but Kevin Malone may be one of my most hated tv characters. Hate the character, not the actor playing him.

^ That episode was mediocre, it was still better than any of the new sitcoms I saw this week excluding Go On.

Yeah, I still enjoy it quite a bit too. All this *****ing about it is just annoying. Some people around here take TV way too seriously, like the show owes them something.

We will always have Threat Level Midnight. Let's all agree on that.

Any intro where Jim messes with Dwight is always great. Asian Jim was awesome.

I liked it too, although Nellie and Pamela might be the least funny possible combination of characters on the show.

Also, Asian Jim was a strong cold open.

Just watched the episode, and thought it was great. The Asian Jim was hilarious, and the rest of the show was pretty solid.

I keep watching this show because first it's better than most sitcoms and second, I always hope for a classic Jim prank on Dwight in the opening.

That was epic....the bad awkward moments are all worth it for that.

Btw wtf are the writers trying to pull off getting Pam suspicious of Jim and trying to elude that they'll break up or something. Don't go down that BS road. Andy is also a frustrating character, he's likable in one episode, dislike him in another.

And Jim Jr. is definitely going out with Erin.

Andy is quickly turning into Michael Scott 2.0.

Asian Jim was awesome.

The Pam thing bugged me. They spent all last episode explaining that other than this, they have no other secrets between them. He did tell her about it initially, but she shot it down. It's obvious he wants to do it, and they have been presented as a completely supportive couple. Trying to show this as a possible source of tension seems weak.

This^

The rest of the episode was crap, but the opening was gold.

Asian Jim was hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing at the family portrait.
