Exactly. We've already been down that path, no need to go there again.

Otherwise smart tv shows almost always always feel the need to throw a wrench into the lives of unmarried tv couples, when they really don't need to. They can be funny and entertaining within their interactions as a couple. Jim and and Pam have been entertaining as a couple this season. I think the writers have done very well so far. It hasn't become The Jim and Pam Show, they've done a nice job of balancing their story with the rest. That's why I have hope TO writers will continue to do a good job with them.

I have to disagree with you. I thought that Karen's character brought nothing to the show. She seemed completely out of place, perhaps it was done intentionally, but this season has been much better without her around.

After re-watching it, I'd have to agree. Business School, probably one of my favorites from that season, didn't hold up as well. I'll post a full re-assessment later.

Cocktails, Back from Vacation, and Phyllis' Wedding could be the low-light of the entire series for me. I haven't gone through all of Season 3 like this, but I'm definitely happy to skip the hump.

And yes, the cold opens for that season were amazing - Jim as Dwight, Jim's Pavlovian Dog Trick on Dwight, Michael's video to his unborn son, Future Dwight...

Cocktails was the peak of the over-the-top nature they flirted with in season three. It got better after that.

Yeah, with Dwight running around the CFO's house and Roy absolutely destroying that bar.

I mostly meant Dwight, yeah. Like him sitting in the kid's bedroom just to ask what the chair was made of. I mean, really.

Exactly.

What really irked me in the Ben Franklin episode was Dwight actually thinking he may be the real Ben Franklin. The battle of wits was funny, but him not being sure? That's just stupid.

Yeah, agreed.

And if he really wasn't sure, couldn't he have just asked him what his date of death was?

Yeah.

Hate to nitpick a great show though.

I honestly thought it was done after I watched Cocktails. The end of Season Three was great, though, so now I don't doubt them much anymore.

I'm excited to re-watch Safety Training, Product Recall, Beach Games, and The Job.

Season 4 would've blown this one out of the water if they had gotten the full season.

Safety Training was a great episode.

I really think they hit their second stride on the second showing, and I might bring my mother to the matinee.
