the fourth season was terribly unfunny. i think the writers were thrown off their game because of the strike. so far, the fifth season has restored my faith in the office.

are you kidding me man? I thought the fourth season is where the writers upp'd their game and really surprised me. From the cold open to the season close - gold imo. This season is a little "different" feeling to me, but so far I wouldn't describe any of the episodes as unfunny. - or any office ep to be honest.

I'm completely confused as to what they are going to do with Pam though. I thought the art degree would be her ticket out of the Office (at the end of the series)....so this is a surprise. did anyone else think this?

They clearly don't know where they are going with this show, but this season is definitely better than the last.

Incorrect. His character has gotten ridiculous, and it's just so unbelievable that he would be rehired. It just makes no sense. I'm glad he's leaving.

my sentiments exactly.....but did I miss something, is he leaving again now?

Yeah, it sort've seems like there isn't much direction. Hopefully there is some with the explanation of Michael's outburst on Wallace.

okay i'm a girl... but no i am not kidding. the thing that i don't like about the fourth season is that it felt like a completely different show. the humor changed from mildly dry to something any 13 year old girl could laugh at, and the dry humor is what i like most about the show.

but i agree, i did think that pam would stay in new york, jim would follow and that would be the eventual demise of the show. at least it looks like the show will be around a little longer than i expected, so yay for that.

Well, while I agree it is unbelievable that he would be rehired, I still like his presence on the show. The random conversations he's been apart of (like last week when Jim asks Ryan about Kelly) have been funny and just suit his office persona. It's going to be weird now that BJ Novak wants to leave even though Ryan was rehired, so it'll be interesting to see how the writers explain his absence.

I thought he was just angry over Wallace sending Holly away.

you mean why he was mad at corporate for getting rid of Holly and never giving him a raise ever? I think that's pretty self explanatory

it was the straw that broke the camel's back so to speak, he never liked corporate and they always looked down on him

Err, I meant how will he treat what Michael said, leading to some direction (him getting fired, demoted, etc).

They will not fire him. I don't think him being demoted would be that funny. They already did it in "The Carpet". Not officially, but he did work with the sales staff already. I'd say if anything corporate may finally level with him and treat him decently. It wouldn't be outrageously funny, but it would be realistic. Hmm... that'd be nice. Realistic...

When will the season be over? I am waiting so I can watch all the episodes in a row. I don't know why but I get into it a lot more if I do it that way. Weird.
