I would say true. They still have the "talking head" scenes, where the characters give their opinion. And Jim will still look to the camera once and a while, but everything is so over the top now that it's not really a documentary.

I guess that's the way American TV works

And I cringed.

Good episode, but I feel like the Fonz is putting on his skis right now.

I loved them singing the cemetary at the end. I agree that this show is definetly not what it once was.

Yeah, the non-girly part of me did, too. The girly part of me can't help it when Jim does cute shit.

I hope this show bows out gracefully. Two more years, max and that could still happen. :crossesfingers:

My lady friend thinks of me as Jim sometimes, which is cool, since she's rather Pam-ish. So there's something riding on that part of the show for me.

Me too, but that's the difference between American and British sitcoms, I guess. As long as it makes $$$ for NBC, they'll try and keep it going forever - hopefully they'll pull a Lost and call an end date.

No idea what the hell this means.

I thought it was a good episode, more in the non-over the top category, which I liked. Good episode for the Michael character, too.

Fonz + skis = jumping the shark.

Otherwise known as when a tv series starts to royally suck, gets too cheezy or predictible, etc.

Did I do ok, LM?

I get "jumping the shark," never saw Fonz and the skis before, though.

I felt that early in the season, but a few good episodes in the middle held out my hope.

Indeed.

Just wanted to say it differently than usual, same analogy though.

The episode itself was funny, with the "5 families" joke killing me for at least a minute and Michael harrassing Phyllis, I'm just worried about the direction of the show overall though.

Two years ago I was the biggest Jam-shipper, but now? Meh. I still like Pam. I see her slowly growing and changing, but Jim does nothing for me anymore. He treats everything like a joke.

I have a feeling that is going to play a big role in the future, Pam's evolution.

I still think they're cute as hell. I mean, who doesn't want a relationship like that?
