Woohoo! From the preview commercial, it looks like Pam has a ring. Thank goodness! I don't think I can wait through a whole other season for that.

Can't wait to see what happens to Michael/Jan/Holly and of course the Dwight and Angela drama. Those two are so weird.

This is one of the only shows I really watch - I am so excited! Not only is the show frickin' hilarious, but I have such a crush on Jim :

I AM STOKED!

DH and I love this show, it's our favorite! We watch the DVDs every day and cannot wait for Thursday!

I heart Dwight/Angela. I don't know why...

Michael/Holly, I don't see it happening. Now that Jan's pregnant, Michael won't be able to see anything else. He just wants a family so badly.

Jim/Pam - :::

I did like Toby but he pissed me off royally when he took Ryan's side against Jim. Grow up. Pam doesn't like him, never has, never even acted like she did. CREEPY.

Wow, didn't know people were taking a comedy so seriously.

It was funny because that is how people act. They do petty, weird things for sad, emotional reasons. They are awkward and uncomfortable. They miss their chance and then nurse a grudge. It's just jokes!

There is a rumor going around that he's the new receptionist. Which would be awesome. Gets him knocked off his pedestal!!

It's supposed to be a "documentary" like someone came into their "office" to tape it, kwim?

Reluctantly joining. I didn't laugh one time all last season, but I can't not watch. The characters are interesting, looking forward to see what they do with Jim and Pam and Micheal/Holly/Jan, and Ryan. So, still looking forward to Thursday, hoping season 5 will be funnier than 4!

in the preview Pam does NOT have a ring. I watched it in slow motion LOL. she's waving one hand in front of the other - I assume to show off the lack of ring....

I'm Andrea - I have three boys - 12 year old twins & an 11 year old

First impressions..I didn't laugh as hard as I would've liked to. But I always take a little while to process things..

Highlights..

Warning :: Spoiler Ahead! Highlight to read message!
Ryan being the new receptionist, Creed selling Kelly a "tapeworm", and of course Jim and Pam getting engaged!!! About time!! I'm still afraid they're going to break them up though..

I literally screamed "OH!" when Jim hit his knee. I cannot believe it. It was so... BLAM, I was not expecting it at all! I totally started tearing up. I didn't cry, but my eyes got very watery - no spillage, LOL.

Oh, I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy!

Everything else can wait until next week. Right now I can't even think straight!

Loved it! I'm holding out hope that the writers aren't going to mess too much with Pam and Jim. I can see there being complications with Pam's new friend at art school, but I think they'll pull through.

For some odd reason, I'm also pulling for Angela and Dwight. Throughout the episode I kept waiting for her to end her engagement to Andy. She's trying really hard to be an ice queen and shake Andy off, but it was kind of sweet the way he kept hanging on and trying to accomodate all of her wedding requests. She's going to have to dump him eventually, won't she?

Totally OT, but does anyone know if the IRL Angela is BFing? She was pregnant last season and had her baby over the summer- I think it was a girl? I think her breasts look larger

Poor Toby, nothing ever works out for him, does it?

New signature, same old me: Ann- mama of 2 boys and 2 girls, partnered to a fabulous man.
I'm an unintentional weasel feeder and I suck at proofreading.

I was worried about that too. I saw that guy joking with her at school and I was thinking "Hey, back off man!"

He proposed!!! : OMG, I was completely taken off guard too! I loved it. And especially how he came back to the office at the last minute all smiles.

Dwight and Angela are funny but ...(and I can't believe I'm saying this!) I feel bad for Andy! Here he is trying to find the perfect place to get married for Angela and she's cheating with Dwight! Boo!

Love how Phyllis is now in charge of party planig. "Lets just say I was at the right place at the right time."

Kelly. "What else do you like about me?" When she was standing up on the chair.

Michael. What an ass for ripping up those tickets!

Omg and the fruit in the vending machine. Millions of fruit flies and here comes Dwight spraying the crap out of them.

And the beginning was hilarious when they were eating their "last meal" and Stanley says he's bringing leftovers to his wife. Dwight comes in with some damn OFF, sprays the crap out of everything, "Here, take that to your wife!!"

Hooray! First episode of the season! Let's hope there are more this season, hey? I bought the Season 4 DVD & I while I like commentary, etc., I was a little irritated that they only put 4 episodes per DVD so they could still charge $$$ for a 4-DVD box set....with only, what, 16 episodes for the year?

Anyway....

Great episode, I thought! I liked the way they covered the entire summer in the hour. The weight loss premise was kind of funny. Poor Kelly. ((That was not a tapeworm. --Creed))

Poor Andy, too. I heart Dwangela, and I think they'll find one another & live happily ever, but I think Angela sees how hard Andy's trying. But *not* having "Here Comes Treble" at their wedding is a dealbreaker - - I'm curious to see how this goes!

I enjoyed that Ryan was back as a temp - Michael's mancrush will never die, will it? - and I LOVED Jim's welcome back to him. "But he did, didn't he?"

I am excited about the addition of Holly, too. She is just brilliant. When Oscar and she were in the breakroom - Oh, so you think it's a choice? - and then when she found out about Kevin - and then making that little rap thing with Michael - and hiding behind the shelves spying .... she's great!!! What a fantastic cast addition. I just love that there's a female Michael. As a dork myself, I heart Holly.

Michael - as usual, awesome. "Who's your daddy? Oh, you don't know who your daddy is, do you??" "I wrote you a poem....the last word is seagulls..." I actually thought him ripping up the tickets was kind of sweet - so Michael - it didn't occur to him to ask her out to the concert? so he ripped them up so she could "just forget" about the bikram yoga guy - and wearing his heart just so out there with trying to make Holly feel better. And calling Jim in the office to yell at him for his "strategy" of friends first/lovers later. Hahahahaha! Just....hilarious.

And Pam at art school - I love it. Just love it. But the JAM we got last night? Fantastic.

Mama to A 8/05 and S 11/06

I missed the first 5 or 10 minutes, putting my son to bed, but I loved what I saw, especially the proposal. :

I feel a little sorry for Andy, too. He's so annoying, but he obviously cares about Angela and is trying really hard to plan the perfect wedding for her. They definitely don't belong together, though; she and Dwight are meant for each other.

So good to see this show again. Loved all of it especially Kelly and Ryan. When she was making out in front of Ryan. And then when Michael asked what else was beautiful about Kelly and Ryan jumps up, "Everything. She's perfect." :

I just got to watch. I'm so stoked!! Angela, wow. What character development. I'm shocked at her behavior.. And her favorite song is Little Drummer Boy... My Goodness. My favorite Angela moment remains to be the talking head from the bat episode. "Poop is raining from the ceiling... Poop!"
