That WAS an amazing episode, but ultimately, I'm worried that they might be taking the easy way out with things. It's easy to make Roy into a jealous jerk rageaholic - what was hard was him trying to be charming these last couple episodes and actually seeming like a nice guy and a good choice for Pam.

I have faith in the show, though, so I guess let's just see where it goes.

JoeE
02-22-2007, 06:03 PM
I actually like making Roy into a jealous jerk, because it was so unexpected. I really thought Pam standing him up had changed him, but it just made him into even more of an asshole. I bet he's going to try and take it out on Jim.

Anybody notice that "Poor Richard's" was the name of the spot from the UK version?

I haven't watched the UK version in a couple years, but I'm pretty sure that it was called Chaser's. This quote seems to think I'm right:

ďSloughís nightlife is incredible; itís got two nightclubs, itís got Chasers and New York, New York. They call it the nightclub that never sleeps. That closes at one. There was, oh my god, a themed nightclub called Henry the Eights. This was incredible. It had the Anne Bol-inn, this is true, as you went into the loo, there was a sign that said mind your head, nice, and underneath someone had written ĎAnd donít get your Hampton Court.í Itís not there any more. But not a day goes by that I donít think about it.Ē

Also, Poor Richard's is a reference to Poor Richard's Almanac, started by famous Pennsylvanian Ben Franklin. But they have referred to it throughout the show.

Well, he did say he was going to kill him.

Which would also be unexpected.

You're right. I confused it with the earlier reference to it on the US version.

"What do you know?"

:lol:

I liked "assertive Pam". Well, right up until she told Roy about her kissing Jim.

Roy always seemed rather "simple" and "fragile". I don't think Pam showed good judgment in telling him that.

I really felt sorry for Toby trying to get that dumb stuffed animal for Pam. I wonder how much money he put into that machine.

I am still baffled by Michael and Jan's relationship. I can only conclude that Jan must be some kind masochist. That's only way I could see her putting up with Michael's nonsense.

Frankly, I don't think Roy's character has had nearly enough development for any of us to say he's "acting out of character".

I mean what do we know about Roy besides he got arrested for DWI and he has a brother?

That he deosn't listen and treated Pam badly kind of. Took her for granted. So Roy is now mad because he probably blames Jim for Pam dumping him when all Pam was doing was trying to be honest with him. I mean, what if the girl you were going to marry and then got dumped and were trying to get back together with found out some guy had come on to her and kissed her?


I feel bad for Michael. He deserves better, sort of.

Na, Jan and Michael are awesome together cause Michael is Oblivious.

I couldn't disagree more. Right before Pam started telling Roy about the Casino night, I said "uh oh". When she said it, I literally said "Roy is going to KILL Jim". Therefore, I thought that the denoument of this episode was one of the most realistic scenes I've witnessed on this show.

Seriously. Roy was pissed off enough with him back in season 1 when Jim wasn't actually doing anything, it only makes sense for him to react much more aggressively now.

I think they went too far with making Micheal such a boob in this ep. Its one thing that he's a bad boss, but it's better when you see that he was the best salesman at one time who can really be a good person and is just clueless when trying to be a leader.

Didn't like this episode at all, especially after how great the episode last week was. I guess it moves the plots forward, but there was so much stuff happening, not so much out of left field, but kind of like the person behind it just read the synopsis of the shows as opposed to having watched them. Like he/she knows that Dwight is weird, Michael is awkward, Jan is on edge and has self-destructive tendencies, Jim plays basketball, Roy's a bad boyfriend, and Pam's a pushover, and went to town just based on that.

the episode was perfect. roy was always on the edge, like about to go insane when he lost pam, and you see why. finding out it was jim halpert, the scrawny small guy to his jock character, set him off.


so many funny parts too, man, such a good episode.

Bradford
02-22-2007, 08:48 PM
not as good as last week's superb effort. But another great episode this week.

Dwight in the rocking chair was a highlight. I also really liked the basketball game and the "find the coin" scene. Very human, which is important on a show with michael scott.

Any you all saw that JJ Abrahms directed this episode right? I have to say Whedon came out on top in this duel...

I couldnt disagree with the haters more. Last week's episode was just allright to meand even left me a bit disapointed. I felt that Dwight vs a bat could have been a lot funnier.

This week had Dwight in rare form: "Ah, you're up, finally"

To each his own I guess.

By the way, this was probably the last time I watch the show as it airs on TV. I'm saving the rest for DVD. I can't stand that every episode seems really short because they're only 17 minutes long with 13 minutes of ads. Or something like that.

Also the reason I stick with trades.

(By the way, I love the first arc of Nextwave. Also, wasn't Arrested Development great?)

If you need more Office, check out NBC for deleted scenes. Its one of the few shows where the deleted scenes are cut for time, instead of being cut for their suckitude.

And the 2nd Nextwave trade is going to be titled "Nextwave: I Kick Your Face."

That's just so awesome I had to mention that now

Not a fan of this episode. Maybe 5 funny bits.

Sy-Klone
02-23-2007, 04:01 AM
Count me among those who were underwhelmed with this episode.

It was good, but not great. It felt off. There's "funny uncomfortable" and there's just plain "uncomfortable" and this episode had too much of the latter and not enough of the former.

There were great moments. Jan reciting the oft-quoted "That's what she said" took me by surprise. :lol: The stuff with Pam and Roy was great. The opening magic act was fun. But most of the party scenes didn't work for me.

Again, not bad. But not this show at its best.

Mike
02-23-2007, 04:15 AM
OK, I guess I get Roy throwing shit and trying to wreck the bar. But then his fat brother just saunters over and starts going all smashy smashy without saying a word? That was just stupid. Also, Roy seemed awfully lucid for a guy who's supposed to be drunk.

It's annoying how Michael's character can be endearing one week and then completely obnoxious the next. I really think the supporting cast and plot lines really keep this show afloat for me. Dwight, Angela, Creed, Kevin, Toby... all good stuff.

Actually, the brother said "damn jetskis!" as he started smashing things (confirmed by my closed-captioning) which i thought was one of the funniest things in the episode.

You're wrong. Yes, they leave the office quite a bit, but the majority of episodes take place in the office. Moreso in the first and second seasons, yes, but even this season, the bulk of scenes in the majoity of episodes are in the office:

"Gay Witch Hunt" - mostly in office
"The Convention" - not mostly in office
"The Coup" - mostly in office
"Grief Counseling" - mostly in office
"Initiation" - I'm giving you not mostly in office, but really it was 50/50
"Diwali" - not mostly in office
"Branch Closing" - mostly in office
"The Merger" - mostly in office
"The Convict" - mostly in office
"A Benihana Christmas" - again, I'm going to give you not mostly in office, although by far the majority of the scenes take place in the office, they do leave it to go to Benihana
"Back from Vacation" - mostly in office
"Traveling Salesmen" - not mostly in office
"The Return" - mostly in office
"Ben Franklin" - mostly in office
"Phyllis' Wedding" - not mostly in office
"Business School" - not mostly in office (again, it's a toss-up, but I'm giving you benefit of the doubt)
"Cocktails" - not mostly in office

So it's 9 to 8, although really it's more like 12 to 5.

wow, so this show is now a soap opera? Were are the dopplegangers and fuzzy flashbacks?

I'm sorry, but that last scene/line was way out of character for the character and the show in general...I can see him getting upset and even start throwing things...but that was too over the top.

Jump the shark?

No, no-- people say, "I'm gonna kill (insert name)," all the time... it's not literal. He just wants to kick Jim's ass.

Yeah it's weird people took that so literally. It's VERY common hyperbole (I guess)

That sucks BUT you should get a friend to tape it for you or something. If I were your friend, I would!

Jim didn't seem to scared of him at that basketball game. Took him down, as I recall.

That WAS an amazing episode, but ultimately, I'm worried that they might be taking the easy way out with things. It's easy to make Roy into a jealous jerk rageaholic - what was hard was him trying to be charming these last couple episodes and actually seeming like a nice guy and a good choice for Pam.

I have faith in the show, though, so I guess let's just see where it goes.

He hasn't been charming though. He's been that loser guy who can't find anything better and preys on the girl who won't move on. I hate that guy.


This episode was awesome, I want Jan hard.
