Just got home from vacation. Have been catching up on the TV that I missed.
OMG, MICHAEL QUIT!!! What is next?!?!
Thoughts? Ideas? Prayer requests?March 24, 2009 at 6:30 pm #661602
Who’s going to take his place? Rob Corddry?March 24, 2009 at 6:38 pm #661603
Hmmm he splits off and starts his own paper distribution company? Dwight follows? I’m actually really unsure where they’re going with that, but it could be interesting. Maybe Jim will be made Regional Manager, and Michael will end up crawling back to Dunder Mifflin? I don’t know, but it is satisfying when Michael isn’t played off as a complete buffoon; I like the episodes where he actually has some self-respect. I’ve still enjoyed this season, but they’ve definitely dumbed-down Michael even more, and sometimes it’s just too unbelievable.
I’ve also been frustrated with how the whole Angela/Andy/Dwight triangle played out; I was hoping for a little more realistic tension after Andy found out about Angela and Dwight, and instead they just let that fade out, as though the writers weren’t sure where to take it and just hoped the viewers would just forget about it (?)March 24, 2009 at 6:46 pm #661604
My guess is he “unquits” and then corporate gets rid of the new a-hole regional mgr.
But I am usually wrong about these things!March 24, 2009 at 7:06 pm #661605

My money is on them bringing him back, perhaps by bringing Holly back to Scranton? The whole Holly thing seems like a pretty big loose end (like Him & Pam taking that road trip to see her).March 24, 2009 at 7:37 pm #661606
The demise of the original Office (the english version) was they made too many drastic changes too early in the show.
Hopefully, they aren’t making the same mistakes here.
We are just now starting to watch the American version on DVD (we are only on season 2). We LOVE it, but like the english version better.March 25, 2009 at 6:22 pm #661607
I have a prayer request. Its the same prayer I’ve been reciting the past 22 years of my life. That Adam would get a life. Looks like my prayers still have not been answered… LOL JKMarch 25, 2009 at 11:10 pm #661608March 25, 2009 at 11:34 pm #661609
Sorry Keith, but it doesn’t count as a spoiler when it’s nearly a week after the episode’s aired. ;-)March 26, 2009 at 7:15 pm #661610
Keith, if it means anything, I debated very much whether or not to include the *spoiler* at the end of my initial post. As someone who doesn’t own a TV myself and has to rely on webcasts of shows (usually) days after their initial airing, spoilers have become the bane of my existence. To think that I may have joined the ranks of this awful breed threatens to near-debilitate me. I greatly apologize if I have negatively altered your viewing experiences.
But c’mon man… it has been a WEEK!!!March 26, 2009 at 10:18 pm #661611
Oh, no worries at all! I’ve actually been gone two weeks and had caught up with some other stuff on the Tivo (BSG and Lost); figured it was safe to look at the computer again as I wasn’t expecting anything major to happen on The Office. No harm no foul!March 27, 2009 at 4:16 am #661612
Speaking of Holly, whatever happened to Toby? Tonight’s 8:30 slot was a repeat of the September episode when Toby came back from Costa Rica. Then where did he go? Anyone know? It’s ok if you don’t, I can surf the web for the answer.March 27, 2009 at 4:20 am #661613
His last appearance was in the episode where Michael tried to get him fired to bring Holly back… is that the one that aired? No news on him since then. Here’s a wikipedia page for the character:
I’m watching the new episode right now; pretty decent so far.
