THE OFFICE Recap: Fun Run

September 27, 2007 by  

Jim & Pam

WOW! Just wow…there are no words for everything I’m feeling right now. Do you know that we live in a world where Jim Halpert & Pam Beesly are dating…and are happy? I can’t stop smiling (and neither can they). How great was it to see our OFFICE friends tonight. Things just see right with the world. And the best part? There’s another new episode next Thursday too!

So I don’t think there’s much of a need to recap tonight’s episode, because come on…I know you all watched it. And I’d like to say that I was able to jot down every single important moment but for the first time in forever I (a) watched the show with other people and (b) watch the show only once (although we did have to TiVo back a few times to rewatch some swoonworthy scenes and to hear some lines that we laughed right over.)

Because it’s reeeeaaaaally late, I’m going to be completely self indulgent and talk about some of my favorite parts of tonight’s episode. Then you can remind me of all the parts I forgot to mention. I can’t wait to get home to watch this episode a few more times. Be warned, the following has no rhyme or reason to it (did I mention it’s late?). Oh and before we get started please know that I am fully aware that The Office is NOT only about Jim & Pam, but you’ve gotta give me a little room here to live in the moment, deal?

Jan & Michael are living together and Jan has seemed to really embrace her new role as house-girlfriend. No sign of the apocolypse with those two but then again it’s only the first episode.

Angela & Dwight have some issues. Well I guess I should say that they have more issues because they’ve always had issues. I was a little thrown by Dwight and Angela tonight. Angela seemed really different. Where was the judgemental gal that we came to love? She’s been replaced by a hot blonde with cute bangs who wears sheer shirts to work and asks Pam for relationship advice. Who is this woman and where is the real Angela Martin? And Dwight? Did he suffer from another concussion tonight? I don’t know if Greg Daniels and crew are taking Dwight in a new direction this season but I thought he was a bit darker than he has been in the past. Maybe it was just me but Dwangela seemed a bit odd tonight. And did they break up? Say it ain’t so.

TOBY FLENDERSON ROCKS MY WORLD…’nuff said.

Cheers to the writing staff for giving Kate Flannery some really great scenes and not cutting them. I’m of the camp that loves when the whole office is utilized so it was great to see Meredith have a upfront role that didn’t involved her flashing the ta-tas or boozing.

I’m pretty sure that whatever teeny, tiny affection I once had for Ryan Howard will be gone…soon. I feel a strong sense of loathing coming on. Maybe it’s just the beard (probably not).

Jim and Pam kissing in car

Um, have I mentioned that Jim & Pam are dating? And kissing in cars? And holding hands? I can’t…I just can’t!! There was a lot of squeeing heard ’round the world tonight. Can we PLEASE talk about Jim Halpert’s face when Pam burst out to the cameras that they were dating and they are happy. I didn’t think it was possible to love John Krasinski more than I already did, but let me tell you – it’s possible. My affection for that boy reached new heights with that face. For the love of Creed Bratton just let these two be happy!

The boys of Dunder Mifflin showed some skin tonight. If this is going to be a new trend I just want to say thanks!

Ok, so here’s where you are going to garbage at me. If I’m being completely honest, the episode felt entirely too long. The girls and I kept noticing scenes that would never have made the cut had it been a half hour show. You know I hero worship Steve Carell but with the cast as large as that of The Office I don’t think there was a need for some many Michael-intensive scenes. There were some sections of the show that really dragged a bit and seemed almost gratuitous. I’m not complaining really, just pointing out something that I noticed.

Sorry this is such a lame blog but I’m literally falling asleep on my computer. Never a good sign. But before I sign off and leave YOU to tell me YOUR favorite moments of last night’s premiere, maybe I leave you with the best quote of the night… “I’m not superstitious, but I’m a little stitious”. Fabulous!! Doesn’t that just need to be on a t-shirt? Lucky for you it is (funny how that works).

The Office t-shirt, I’m not superstitious, but I’m a little stitious

I had one of those really great nights. Good dinner, with good people and lots and lots of laughter, and that was before the show even started. So to K, K & J – thanks for a fantastic evening and thanks for making a Boston girl feel at home in Hollywood. There’s no one I would rather watch The Office with…well unless John Krasinski invites me over, then I’d ditch you broads in a second.

Oh and I have mentioned that I’m happy that Jim & Pam are together?
