    I love how Ryan has some completely new outfit or look every week.

    I think it's great how he changes his style the most often but the show still doesn't give him any attention. It's like he knows he's a lame background character.

    In the context of the documentary setting, that makes so much sense - he's just desperate for recognition, but he hasn't even been given a talking head this series, I don't think.

    This episode was definitely the best of the series so far. I just want to hug Andy, he's so pathetically sweet :(

    You really had no idea why Creed was in a hurry to leave the office?

    I like the bit where a couple of teenagers show up at that one bar, all thanking Creed. He then offhandedly remarks to the interview guys that he runs a fake ID company.

    It was unfortunate that they showed that in the promo, as it kind of killed the bit as I knew the finale. Not as bad as the promos ABC does on their Wednesday night comedy block though, which basically show the three funniest parts of the episode out of context and ruin the night.

    Oh man, Pam at the end seriously made the episode for me.

    Also Andy's southern accent.

    Creed was a little predictable, but he's Creed, and I hadn't put the whole "late" thing together yet. Now it's hilarious.

    Finally got a chance to catch this on hulu, and it felt like a return to form. This season hasn't been bad, but it's felt a bit ... soulless so far. Maybe I'm just a bit perverse, but the show isn't great when it's over the top or just hilarious, it's clicking when it's poignant and soul crushingly real and then the characters pull through and make you laugh. Andy/Erin's interaction and Michael's dealing with things and snapping set the stage for the rest of the stuff to be meaningful instead of just wacky.

    As much as I love Creed, I hope hes never on the show again. Because that would be the best send off of a character ever.

    He probably thinks they suspect him for the murder of the original Creed....

    Seeing Michael be competent at his job (and downright brilliant and insightful, in fact) is what made the episode for me.

    I think it's gotten to the point where we shouldn't act like Michael being a competent business man is surprising. He's had far more business successes than failures.

    Spoiler:

    If it's anything like last season, they'll make it look like everything's been tossed up in the air, but by the season finally everything falls back to the status quo as Jim and Pam find out with a smug smile their baby is an angel. Naturally.

    The writers have essentially begun writing the series from the beginning again. Andy and Erin are the new Jim and Pam, while the bankruptcy plot mirrors the branch closure/merger plots.

    I often wonder if the show's popularity has grown to the point where NBC is afraid to allow the writers to do anything fresh with the series. :?

    They foreshadowed the Jim development where he might pull in a big sale that keeps the company afloat, and he moves up the ladder as he takes on more and more "big" sales, overtaking Michael and his big idea title, to where he ultimately becomes as high as Wallace in the company (president sales & marketing or something).

    It's hard to tell how much of that is because of him and how much of it is because Michael has warped the environment of the Office in such a way that he's the only person who can manage it somewhat effectively.

    In teh other office they were playing COD all day, it seems to be the standard, Jim isn't good at managing people as shown by the way he tried to do bonuses.

    The other office only played CoD on their breaks. Apart from that they seemed to respond to normal management techniques, which is why most of the people from that branch who were absorbed by Scranton didn't stay.

    Karen seems to be doing alright as a manager and she had just as many problems with Scranton as Jim did. She probably wouldn't have excelled in that branch either.
