The Office, Season 4, Episode 2

I don't even know where to begin with this episode. More drama, more outrageousness, less subtlety. What is wrong with B.J. Novak's character? I know he's supposed to be mean but isn't there a way to make him mean and likable and funny? And where is Ed Helms? It's been two episodes and he hasn't kicked anything yet. I'm also starting to wish that they had fired Creed instead of Devin in the Season 2 Halloween episode.

What happened to the subtle humor? I'm beginning to feel like I'm in an actual office with people I don't want to be around doing things I don't want to do and not getting paid for it.

The highlight of the show was when Jim and Pam went to Toby to see what they had to do about registering their relationship with HR and Toby told them wait and see how it goes before doing anything official.

Overall, it was funnier than the first episode, but I'm still not impressed. Maybe when the episodes go back to a half hour they'll trim it down and leave only the good stuff.

But what about sprinkles??

I am so glad Sprinkles is dead. I wish she had just died though and they hadn't premised half an episode around it.

Tonight was pretty damn good.
