I was pretty meh about The Office premier last night. I hope people who watched it for the first time last night, like Feather, give it another change. I'm interested to see where they're going with the Jim being in Stamford thing and the Roy/Pam breakup. I felt the whole meeting, especially the kissing Oscar thing, was too over the top, even for this show. There's no way in real life Toby would have allowed that to happen. I think the show is starting to get too sitcom-my. I think the writers need to have a marathon of the UK version. Don't get me wrong, I adore the show, but I think season 1 was the best and it has been slowly going downhill. I did like Ryan's "that'll show 'em," Dwight's thinking about Angela with another woman and Stanley's speech about the toaster.
On the other hand, I thought ER was really good! I was going to be royally pissed if they killed Luka, Abby, the spawn of Luka and Abby, or Jerry. Damn, Goran looked fine last night! Yay, Mrs. Costanza! Usually I despise Sam's stories (and I blame the writers because I love Linda Cardellini), but last night's was pretty cool.
I still have high hopes for my Thursday night TV and I hope they keep Deal or No Deal on at 9 so I can watch my tape of The Office without worrying about missing something good.
*Update: Maybe I'm being a little too harsh since I've had a massively shitty week. Or maybe not...
