Man, that was a pretty hilarious episode (the Dundeys). I love the locale at Chilis...reminded me of Office Space.

Great start so far. Posted Image

more goofy (over the top) than hilarious to me
the 'subtle' humor moments seemed to be missing and themes seemed a bit repetative from past episodes

likely intentional but it seemed like the cast addressed and played to the camera a lot more in this episode

there were some real nice Jim and Pam moments

probably my least favorite of the 7 episodes thus far but I hold the other 6 in such high regard

Dwight rushing to take off his shirt when Pam falls off the stool was the main LOL moment for me in this episode. I find that so much of the early portions of the episode was so uncomfortable to watch at times.

Yeah, I definately felt the same way. Some of the moments in the episode were like a train wreck, but there were funny moments as well.

But how can the Steve Carell character not just get so fired for the way he conducts himself with blatant sexual harrassment and racial stereotyping? I know it's a stupid complaint, but I end up wondering that everytime I watch an episode.

I guess that is one reason why I think the British version works better. It was a short run where the timeline of events seemed realistic and the ending of the series was logical. I could not see Carrell being allowed to run the office for, say, 8 seasons (should the show last that long)
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

It was nice of Pam to come to Michael's aid. Luckily she was drunk and can deny it later.

I can't see how they're going to keep Jim and Pam apart for 8 22 episode seasons! Posted Image

The first season, Michael's hair was made to look like he was losing his hair from the front area, but I guess they decided to reverse that trend because it'd be too hard to maintain that look.

Second ep- sexual harassment. Didnt expect the cameo by David Koechner, and some of the jokes were just hilarious! (Big William Hung fan?)

Great start so far; lovin the second season!

What a painful episode to watch... but funny as hell. Posted Image

I loved the line that went something like "Don't blame me, I just forward the emails... nobody arrests someone for just transporting drugs from one place to another!" Posted Image

I see a threat of getting fired in Michael's future.

"Who's got two thumbs and hates Todd Packer...This guy!"



also, Dwight's particular quesiton that he asked the HR guy had me laughing so hard I thought I was gonna choke.


oh yeah, "The only thing I am worried about...is getting a boner." Classic.

You know what's funnier? Watching this episode at work with a few co-workers and watching the co-workers go "Oh no, he did not just say that!" and then all the bust out laughter from seeing the work-related harrassment on display in the episode.
