It's kinda funny to see guys mainly liking the 2 minutes they spend in each episode slowly developing this Jim/Pam thing over the humor.

I agree, however it's hard to get someone who has never seen it before into it for some reason.

I'm starting to get a little annoyed by how arbitrary the character of Michael has become. It seems like each person who has written episodes for the show (and there are a lot) has a significantly different perception of how Michael should behave. I found last night's version of Michael to be quite out of line. There has generally been a distinction between Michael being ignorant and Michael being outwardly idiotic. He is such a complex character, and I love the moments on the show where he manages to say just the right thing at the right time in help someone. Like on the booze cruise when he told Jim not to give up in his pursuit of Pam. There is a good side to Michael which is not played up enough, like in the episode where he befriends Toby's young daughter.

Episodes like last night make Michael into too outrageous of a character. Part of what makes The Office so great is that everyone on the show can easily be compared to people in your real life. We all know someone like Michael, but I highly doubt any of these people we know would behave as Michael did last night, or is quite as ignorant as Michael is when it comes to race relations.

Michael seems to be on the verge of a nervous breakdown. This season has sort of been leading up to something of that sort. Twice now this season, Michael has mentioned the strange and resentful relationship he has with his mother and his step-father, Jeff. Many of his actions and reactions can probably be attributed to his dysfuntional childhood.

Last night's episode was easily the worst of season 3, and definatly in the bottom 5 episodes from any season. It had its funny one-liners and quirks here and there, but Michael's obsurdity overshadowed what could have been a classic episode if done correctly.

I don't think I'm rationalizing when I say that it all happened because of Michael's inability to cope with that childhood experience more so than the writing style.

It's general psychology that when we have traumatic experiences as children, we try to overcome them as adults, which Michael tried to do. I think he realized that at the end when he apologized to Phyllis.

Yeah, that was the reasoning behind his actions, no doubt. But we have no prior knowledge of his mother's second marriage and this wedding (except for the mention that he has a step-father) before last nights episode. This was the first episode written by last night's writer, and it's sort of extreme in the context of the show. Michael has said a lot of ignorant things before, but this seemed absolutely absurd. His behavior shunned any and all common sense he could possibly have had. NO ONE behaves like he did last night.

I like the fact that they are giving us more info on Michael's background and childhood, I just think this takes the element of realism away from his character entirely.
