Anyone else notice how unbelievably bow-legged Jan is?  Holy ****.

I saw the episode last night around 9:30 after a party, and Kris summed it up for me.  She said, it wasn't very funny.  Still funny, but not as funny as usual.  Loved Creed and the fake id line, liked Jim and the CFO shooting hoops, well - liked a lot of things.  But didn't love it as usual.

It will be interesting to see what happens with Roy.  It had better be funny, because that's why I watch the show.  It can be uncomfortable, but it better be funny.  The ending last night was just uncomfortable.

I also forgot to mention, the episode was directed by JJ Abrams (Alias, MI:III, etc.).  That kind of explains the intense action sequence when Roy threw his mug at the mirror in the bar.

I went to grade school with kid named Mike Smithson who was a Star Wars nut.  Mike, did you go to elementary school in Kansas City?

Not a new episode, but what NBC is calling a "new-peat" tonight:

Quote
In an unusual experiment aimed at improving ratings for reruns, NBC (this) week plans to air two previously seen half-hour episodes of “The Office” that have been re-edited into a new hour-long show. Some scenes will be cut so producers can weave in unaired footage that introduces a new storyline into the older episodes.

Producers of “The Office” say re-editing the episodes is a way to keep the program’s rabid fan base from moving on … “Their loyalty must be rewarded somehow, and we don’t have the budget to send out 10 million muffin baskets,” says Executive Producer Greg Daniels.

The two previous episodes which will be shown tonight as a remixed, hour-long episode are "Traveling Salesmen" and "The Return."

No Office next week, but on March 29, there will be an Office marathon, hosted by Paul "Toby" Lieberstein, featuring the episodes "Diversity Day," "Health Care," "Sexual Harassment," "The Injury," and "Gay Witch Hunt."

The next new episode will be on April 5.

NBC has posted a new promo for the Office on YouTube.  Its Jim-Pam centric, and mostly past clips - but the ending shows an interesting upcoming bit with Roy and Jim.

Thanks for posting that.

I'm anxious to see the **** hit the fan between Jim and Roy.  Obviously Roy has crazy (and size) on his side...I hope he gets fired after attacking Jim.  Knowing Michael, he won't.

After what seems like an eternity, The Office returns with a "super-sized" episode tonight!

THE NEGOTIATION

8:00/7:00c TV14 (Note the earlier start time)

04.05.2007

SALARY NEGOTIATIONS DRIVE MICHAEL TO THINK ABOUT HIS OWN PAY - Darryl (Craig Robinson) decides to meet with Michael (Golden Globe winner Steve Carell) to negotiate a pay increase. Meanwhile, Jim (John Krasinski) deals with the consequences of Pam's (Jenna Fischer) confession to Roy (David Denman).

To celebrate the new episode, here's a pic of Jenna Fischer that I'm sure you'll all enjoy.

Finally...

Anyone see the promo that NBC ran set to some cheesedick American Idol type music?  It has some footage from tonight's episode in it. 

(ETA:  Of course you all did.  Brian posted it last week)

It looks fake to me, too, but according to Wired's blog, it was real:

Quote
So of course, WIRED being WIRED, we wanted a cover that was smart and showy. And as Creative Director I wanted something that hadn't been done before. We settled on the idea of printing on clear acetate. But it had to be interactive. Now you’re in a business suit—now you’re not.

Then we wrestled with the question of how to best show the real goings on inside the modern American office. How about using “The Office” as a model? And who would we like to see practicing what we're preaching? Dwight? Ehhh...notsomuch. Of course, Pam. So we called NBC and pitched our idea and
Jenna Fischer (thankfully!) liked the idea.

Michael Elins photographed her in Los Angeles in a dingy little studio. And yes, the whole thing is real; we shot it in two parts, Jenna in her business suit and her birthday suit (really). She was a great sport about the whole thing. Funny and endearing.

And no, I don't have outtakes.
