The Office: The Job

ryan.jpgIf you missed last week's episode, Creed blogged the whole thing. Unfortunately, it was not for the Web. I was EXTREMELY disappointed to find that out... even though that actually made it 10 times funnier.

Initially, nothing came out of the Pam coal-walking incident from last week. However, Dwight was instantly rewarded for his pain. Michael named him branch manager, even though he hadn't secured his own future yet. Dwight responded by weeping uncontrollably. He also put his dirt presentation on the fast track. Lord knows how long he's had those dirt samples in his desk and/or trunk.

Jan stopped by to basically beg to get back with Michael. What's up with that? She took a vacation, cleared her mind, and pumped up her boobs. And as we all know, boobs conquer/cure all. Add boobs, instant relationship.

Jim and Karen headed to NYC for a night out on the town before their big interviews at corporate. Good times. Of course, Karen killed the moment (I realized tonight... she's very good at that) by mentioning the beach and how she wants Jim to move if either one of them gets the job. I would be on her side if she hadn't called Pam a bitch earlier in the episode. Me-ouch!

Michael's interview is very uniform, except that his major contribution would be a name change for the company. He did have a point though. I vote for Paper Great. He also found out that the job in question would be Jan's job -- she got canned.

Rightfully so, Michael tells Jan the deal. Why she would think it was her boobs is insane. Wouldn't those be company assets?

So Jan was canned, Michael got to keep his job and Jan is getting ready to play house-girlfriend. There could be some hilarious possibilities for next season in there. But why wasn't Michael more excited? Just a few short seasons ago, didn't it seem like he was willing to marry the Benihana waitress to achieve couple status?

The end left us with plenty of cliffhangers. First, Jim asked Pam out for "a date." Now do you think this is an actual date or just a figure of speech? Because if it's the latter, I am going to be one pissed viewer.

And even though it looked as though corporate would cut Karen out of the love triangle, it looks as though she didn't get the job either -- it was boy wonder, Ryan! That sneaky little s**t went behind all of our backs. That was the real shocker of the season.

Sad we have to wait over the summer, although 30 episodes have been ordered for the new season. Wow wee. Also, the downtime should give Jenna Fischer some time to recouperate. She suffered a nasty fall at the NBC upfronts this week. Get well soon Pam! -- Rachel Cericola

I am such a sucker for Jim and Pam it's ridiculous (and wussy). As usual, however, the office crew ended the show in the perfect way. I love how they used the direct (the character looking at the camera) to ignite the Jim-Pam thing. Man that was perfect, and Jenna Fischer's reaction was Emmy worth.

Sending Ryan to corporate was genius. He's such an ass, he deserves the big desk ;)

The Ryan/Kelly exchange at the end was priceless, especially the look Ryan gave at the end.

Haven't seen the ep yet...probly should't'a read yer recap but couldn't resist. Yer almost as good as that Earl recapper...

Anywaist, Pammy isn't the only damaged Dunder-Mifflin-er to be damaged recently, although hers is significantly worse.

"Universal Pictures confirmed Monday that the Golden Globe-winning star of NBC's The Office sprained his ankle over the weekend while shooting a scene involving sheep for the upcoming film Evan Almighty. "

I hope they cancel this show as soon as possible. It is just too insipid to bother watching. Get some imagination and creativity. People want to escape from idiotic bosses, not watch shows about them after hours.

The season finale was fantastic. This is hands down the best comedy on television right now. And they came through with an ending for Season 3 that was freaking brilliant.

Go Pam! Her character has taken such a journey this year. Bring on the fall season!

K Olson is an idiot. The Office is the most imaginative, funny, sweet, realistic show on television.
