I don't think they would extend scenes like that (to a ridiculous Family Guy-level). I think it would just be adding other subplots to the episode.

I prefer the "supersized" episodes, 28 minutes of Office time is better than 20.

I feel like the regular episodes are really short and the supersize ones feel just right. It's the old George Constanza trick of leaving on a high note and wanting more rather than giving too much. I don't think the show would be as funny or as good if consistently stretched out to an hour. Have there been comedy shows that aired in hour episodes, cause I'm drawing a blank on that one.

The Office combined Traveling Salesman and The Return into one episode and added the bit about Andy leaving for anger management.

Other than that, I don't know any straight-forward comedies that have ever been an hour. CSI: Miami doesn't count.

I'm going to miss the supersized episode because I have a hot date Thursday night.

It will only be worth missing if I get cookie.

I agree that a 45-minute time slot, like the super-sized episodes, with 28 minutes of the show, would be perfect for this show.

What's a cold opening? First scene? I like Future Dwight and Jim Impersonating Dwight.

Best episode of the season and right up there with the best of the series.

Future Dwight
Jim Impersonating Dwight
Michael's Video to his "son"

This season has been pretty great for cold openings.

The best part was Sex Predator Dwight looked like my Chemistry teacher, who we also suspect is a weirdo.

Last night's episode was awesome for so many reasons:

--Angela not wanting to shop at Gap Kids because the clothes are "too flashy"

--The men in the women's bathroom

--The wanted poster and Dwight's cluelessness

--Michael's wishes for everyone

--Pam, "I just said a lot of things."

So I don't know what's going to happen with the whole Jim-Pam-Karen thing and am thinking I don't care that much anymore, I sort of like the idea of Pam striking out on her own. But with the conversation Ryan had with Jim about his basically asking Karen out and the look Karen gave when Kelly was talking about her relationship with Ryan, maybe something will come of that next. Would be nice to see some couple drama that doesn't involve Jim and Pam. Of course, we also have Dwight and Angela.

I know my neighbor's have kids that are 10 years old that watch this show. The subject material of the past two episodes must be making them regret that decision!
