    I like how, over both seasons, there has been like 10 minutes of screentime dedicated to Brian losing

    and like 3 seconds shown of the recorded match he won

    Also watching these sort of depresses me because I know I'll probably never work in offices that nice.

    The primary function of PA The Series is to make everybody depressed about their jobs.

    I telecommute from home and still find this to be true. Sure working in an office environment like that is lightyears over what I do, but still.

    If you buy the PATV Season 1 DVD set there's a 45-minute extra video called "Scott Kurtz Chronicles" which is basically this.

    I love that this is seriously just 10 minutes of Ping Pong that had me riveted to my seat. If 2 years ago someone told me I would give a shit about ping pong, let alone losing my shit watching ping pong, I'd have called you a liar.

    That episode was virtually indistinguishable from a 2PP episode. Great editing and music.

    Actually, do any of the old episodes deal with how ping pong caught on in the first place?

    Like who in the office got it kicked off, and at what point did they decide it was something they had to focus serious mental resources on?

    Don't the Bungie eps from season 1 briefly touch on that...not into who started it and when it got serious, but at least in a general reference?
    Could be. I'll hafta go back and watch again

    In fact I need to rewatch all of season 1 anyway

    Am I the only one bugged by their bad technique? They keep backing off way too far from the table, they lay some really high fucking balls just tempting people to smash the shit out of them and the last guy kept doing a serve that was actually illegal. I feel that with a week or two of practice (since I havn't played table tennis in a few years) I could beat everyone on there, except possibly Khoo. Probably my arrogance talking though.

    Plus they had really bad manners in terms of not admitting their luck when hitting the side of the table or having balls roll over the net.

    I believe in one of the other epsiodes (possibly the first ping pong one) they said that Jerry, Mike and Robert used to frequent a bar when they had to plan things out. And that bar just happened to have a ping pong table and they'd bat a ball around while discussing things. At some point, they decided that they would have a table in their office and thus, some of the best PA tv episodes were born.

    Hahaha oh man, I didn't even know that he did it at first. I was wondering what the hell that sound was and why it was so familiar.

    .

    As much as they want to win, they are still clearly playing for fun. They are not all in great shape or good table tennis players but they are passionate and enjoy it, which is what it's all about - and what makes it great to watch. As for technique, what did you expect? This ain't the olympics.

    I think your feelings are misplaced here.

    Whaaat? I didn't see any illegal serves. They throw the ball up a few inches, then hit it on the way down. Not that I really know a lot about ping pong, but I thought that was how you were supposed to serve?

    And I don't think their technique was bad, actually backing off is kinda limited by the room. If anything, in real competitive play, they'd back off more, and lob them even higher.
