Fucking clips show.


I can understand clip shows in the past before Tivo and DVD collections of TV shows, but there's really no need for them now...at least I think so.

They're cheap to produce.

I really liked that Jim/Pam montage, that was really sweet to see their relationship from start to present.

At least the episode had Computron.

"Please don't.............Computron wants to live."

They messed up the sequence of clips from "The Dundies," though. Pam kissing Jim comes before her staring at him while drunk at the bar (and then falling off the stool); it doesn't make sense shown in reverse order.

Computron. :lol:

Fake Stanley :lol:

And Michael is the highest ranking person in the company right now? That's scary.

Yes, yes it is. "So... that's where we're at now."

Fake Stanley and the use of the Travis song were my favorite parts. Travis needs more love in the US.

It may have been a clip show, but I laughed quite a bit. And it was nice seeing old clips that I haven't seen in years.

What's the name of that song, again? It was a great fit. I got a lil choked up.

Fake Stanley was great and I totally forgot the awesome "Jim as Dwight" bit. :lol:

I started watching it on Hulu, I didn't finish it. Maybe some time later.

I did get a kick out of the episode...despite being a clip show. Though with the scene with Michael on the Segway...it's just me, but after Arrested Development, whenever I see someone on a Segway, I immediately think of GOB Bluth.

I'm not usually big on clips shows. I think one of the better ones I watched was with Scrubs, which I was surprised at how well they pulled it off.

This one fell a little flat for me, though it was was nice seeing some of the clips from older shows.

Of course Computron and Fake Stanley were gold, so I'll give them that. :)

Where I really think they screwed up is in the scheduling. Yeah, it was a great clip show, but why have a clip show as the first episode after a month break?

"Please don't.............Computron wants to live."

That almost made the show worth it.

Haven't watched it yet. But clip shows make Homer something something.

This was my thinking yeah. Seems like that could have waited until next week at least.

what's the last primetime show that you've seen put out a clips show? i can't think of one.

I think every sitcom that makes it past two or three seasons has done at least one clip show.

Does Lost count?? Every year they put out at least 1 .

When I think of long-running sitcoms like Cheers, Friends, Seinfeld, Home Improvement, Everybody Loves Raymond, Fraiser, they've all done a clip show.

They don't try to pass it off as a "new" episode though.

Exactly....alot like the clip show BSG did. It wasn't passed off as a new episode.

I'm normally don't like shows that rehash the better moments from episodes past.

However, watching this one, reminded me of why the Office has been the best comedy on TV bar none.

I like Creed's montage, short & sweet :lol:

Of course, I love Jim & Pam's.

Forgot to mention that I was initially bummed that it was a clip show... yet I loved watching all those clips!

I stopped watching shortly after the clips started, not at all interested, don't care how they frame it.
