The Office: Launch Party

launch.jpgIt's about to get all stupid up in here...

Never has a statement ringed so true. Meredith came back. While that may not seem as exciting as a DVD Video box bouncing into the corner or a screen, it was, well... creepy. What was up with her and Jim?

Dunder-Mifflin Infinity
launched. How the company got along this far without a website beyond me. I don't even order from a restaurant that doesn’t have a website.

To commemorate the historic moment, every Dunder-Mifflin branch office was hooked up and partying with web cam, which was hooked up to a much bigger, better party in New York. All of the VIPs were there -- except for the VIPs that were invited to participate via the web. That was Michael. Maybe his tight purple shirt looked better on screen.

Not sure whether it was the tight shirt or the un-vitation, but Michael went a bit mental tonight, kidnapping a pizza delivery boy because he would not honor his 50 percent off coupon.

Speaking of mental: The breakup has apparently gotten to Dwight. Not only has he started to sprout facial hair, but he challenged the computer to a sales contest. He also was convinced that the computer had become alive, and was taunting him via instant message.

Andy's recent infatuation with Angela probably wasn't helping Dwight's mental state. Maybe he'll think twice next time before he kills one of her cats.

We also found learned a few things tonight:
• Pam actually liked Jim the first time she met him.
• Jim actually withdrew himself from consideration for the job that’s now Ryan’s.
• Alfredo Pizza Cafe is much better than Pizza by Alfredo; the latter is the equivalent of "a hot circle of garbage."
• Andy knows where to steal a good ice sculpture.
• Andy apparently belongs to or is friends with a barbershop quartet. Something tells me this has come up before...

I'd have to say: I love "The Office" -- hell, I even live it to some extent. However, I am ready to return to the 30-minute format. When Michael came to the realization that yes, he had in fact kidnapped a kid tonight, it got a little less funny. Still love it... I was just happier when I was left wanting more and not actually getting it. Get it? -- Rachel Cericola

I and any real dunherheads would 100% disagree. One hour a week is barely sufficient.

Would the producers have made time for Andy's entire serenade in a regular length episode? Probably not. So for that reason, I like the hour-long shows.

(NOTE: Yes, it's been established that Andy was in an acapella group at Cornell.)

I thought the info about Andy had come up before. I just couldn't think of the episode off the top of my head.

Definitely loved the Andy serenade, so I wouldn't have wanted that to get cut!
