Of course it's not believable that someone would drive into the lake in that situation, but so much of comedy (and drama and, well, TV period) is hyperbole anyway. I don't take the show seriously seriously -- I thought it was funny!

I don't know if he's more obnoxious now than he was before. If he is, it's not by much. It's been my pet peeve of the show for a while now.

And I never thought that Michael Scott himself is unbelievable - I find it supremely unbelievable that he's still employed.

In an ideal world, yeah. But I've had two or three bosses who were worse (can you believe it?), and there's a whole workforce of bad apples out there.

I still can't believe there's a road going into a lake. I think that's more unrealistic than Michael driving into it.

I hope the day never dawns where I watch a sit-com for believability. I watch it to laugh, and if it's realistic, great, and if it's not realistic, great.

I think believable comedy is better, which is why I bring it up.

Arrested Development is the best comedy since Seinfeld, and, I don't think it was all that realistic.

I really dug this episode. The Big callback and Dwight's reference to the Shoah Foundation absolutely killed me.

Ryan bothers me now than he did before, did not know that was possible.

I think they scripted Michael's anger at him way too early. I wish they'd played it more like in the beginning with his talking head about the twinkle in his eye (which killed me), and continued that for a while. Like, Michael still thinks they're cool with each other, while Ryan clearly isn't a fan of his.

I do think they're using Andy's character very well, and I love how he's becoming buddies with Kevin.

You'd think this show was the Zapruder film. Come on, scum-bo, just sit back and enjoy it.

Andy's not as irritating as he was last season. I think there's potential for a Dwight-Angela-andy triangle at some point, too.

That would be funny.

I can't handle these hour long episodes. They are just too long.
