The Office: Beach Games

office-beach.jpgToday was beach day for everyone at Dunder-Mifflin -- except Toby. Michael wanted him to stay behind because, well... he doesn't like him. I felt bad for Toby, but I really didn't need to see that hat throughout the entire episode.

Michael is up for a possible promotion, which makes me think that either Dunder-Mifflin wants to throw him a bone to keep him quiet about the whole Jan thing -- or they really are the worst company on the planet.

As part of the day's "funtivities," Michael tested everyone to find a possible replacement, or at least someone that can be a chicken head. As second-in-command, wouldn't Jim be the automatic choice?

The office was divided into four teams. Jim wanted to screw around, Kelly got Andy's team disqualified from the first test, Dwight berated his team and Stanley wanted to lounge. Frankly, Creed should have gotten an award for catching a fish with his bare hand -- and eating it raw.

The next contest involved eating a lot of hot dogs. However, most people didn't want to participate until they found out that the winner could be the next office head. Andy took the lead with 13 hot dogs.

Next up was the sumo contest. Stanley kicked Jim’s ass right away. Dwight crushed Andy, and Oscar considered going straight if any one of them wins Michael's job. While still in his sumo suit, Andy lost his lead by falling into the lake and floating away.

While everyone was competing, Jim and Karen call corporate to throw their hats into the ring for Michael's promotion as well (or "in well"). Get ready for a possible SPOILER... Don't quote me, but I am guessing Karen will be the one to get it, since she has signed on for a new show.

The final task was to walk across hot coals. Pam wanted to do it, but Michael won't allow her. Dwight walked -- and then crawled across.

Pam got psyched up, walked the coals and then totally unloaded on her co-workers. She bitched everyone out for not coming to her art show. (Didn't Oscar and Michael go? Not together, of course.) Then she proceeded to tell Jim how she called off her wedding for him and misses hanging out and having fun with him -- not everyone else though. Wow! Something finally happened! I was sure that the commercials were going to end up to be a bunch of B.S. How wrong I was.

Next week is the season finale. What could possibly happen? Will everything be left hanging until next season? And how could everyone not know the entire "Flintstones" theme? -- Rachel Cericola

Pam 2.0 is AWESOME.

I thought it was 14 hot dogs....oh well.

Poor Andy, I kinda feel sorry for him, floating out there all by myself.

Hey Bryan: It was 14 hot dogs... but he said one "came back up." Ew!

Oh yea...completely forgot, my bad.

My second favorite show...after Earl of course.

Loved the shot of Michael wondering where Andy was, when in the backgound out in the lake Andy was just barely visible.

You couldn't be righter...Toby's hat was horrible. Was that supposed to be the point?

And yeah, my $'s on Karen snagging the NY gig.

Ah yes, finally an Office moment that delivered--not like that Jimroy "fight" that left us all disappointed. Jenna Fischer is amazing--I'm so glad The Office's writing staff realized how crucial she is and is giving her such room to shine. I will be so furious if she doesn't garner at least an Emmy nomination this year, because she wholeheartedly deserves it. (And I figure Jaime Pressly and Elizabeth Perkins are the only "locks", with a possible nod for Vanessa Williams. That leaves at least two slots, though maybe three in the event of a tie. Since Cheryl Hines is not eligible this season and Holland Taylor was barely in any episodes whatsoever, only Conchata Ferrell stands a real chance this season of grabbing one of those two remaining slots. And since The Office is an Emmy favorite, it seems plausible Fischer might make it in (before Ferrell, I'm sure) this time around. I hope.

Anyway, back to the episode. Jim just left this past season to go to Scranton, so I highly doubt they'd make him depart once again. That's just too much. I think Karen, whom I actually like against all odds, has to be the one to leave, which will open doors for Jim and Pam--asjdhdsfk I can't wait for Thursday!
