    Is it just me, or does everyone else think that the less the show focuses on the Jim-Pam thing, the better and funnier it is?

    I enjoy the Jim-Pam dynamic.

    BTW, who turned up Kevin's mic? I don't remember him being so audible in the seasons 1/2.

    10-1 odds it was one of the producers.

    That may be true, but to succeed, "The Office" can't just be funny. It has to alternate making you laugh out loud with making you squirm-in-your-seat uncomfortable for the characters.

    Example: Michael all of a sudden really seeming to express symptoms of depression last night toward the end of the show.

    Example: Jim lifting Pam in the air at the karate place in the first season and her reacting as if a huge line had been crossed.

    Example: Jim walking up to Pam's desk to meet her mother and Roy walking in right at that moment.
  5. I'm the opposite. Carrell is a great actor but the character is so annoying and over the top. I love the supporting cast ... Jim/Pam, Ryan/annoying girl, Dwight/Drew ... the betting last night was great ... the Michael stuff was just OK

    Interesting to note that this episode was directed by Harold Ramis.
