Episode # 88 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin considering the fact that they're not as charming as they think they are. Well, it's gonna be a good day... for Dunder Mifflin and Sa-bray... erm... SAYber. When electronics giant Sabre buys out Dunder Mifflin, they make quite a few changes that Michael just can't seem to live with. Can David Wallace save the day, or will Michael just have to SUCK IT up? (Har) Later, when Sabre CEO Jo Bennett arrives in Scranton to inspect the troops, she forces Jim and Michael to decide which one of them is the REAL manager. Sometimes, the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Other times, there IS no grass... just a farty dirt patch. On the plus side, Andy proves once and for all that he DOES have one dynamite crotch. Erin, please take note. Incidental music provided by the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.

There's been a lot of speculation about Dunder Mifflin's new parent corporation, Sabre. Now, fans of The Office can dig through a new faux-website for the copier conglomerate. Just head over to www.Sabre-Corp.com and all your questions will be answered.
Want to learn more about Sabre's products? There's a complete catalog of printers available, running from the low-end Sabre iPalette all the way up to the Sabre 9900 All-in-One Color Ink-jet. Fax machines and scanners are also available.
CEO Jo Bennett is featured, as any corporate website should. You can even watch the inspirational Sabre video with Christian Slater.
Of most interest to fan of The Office is the News section where the announcement of Dunder Mifflin's acquisition is available. In the press release it notes that Dunder Mifflin has the following branches: Albany, Utica, Scranton, Akron, and Nashua. Thus, leaving open the possibility of a return of beloved characters Holly Flax or (less likely) Karen Filipelli.

Manager and Salesman | 2.11.10
The office is eager to welcome Sabre CEO Jo Bennett to Scranton, and are dazzled by her Southern ways. When Jo finds out there are two branch managers, she says either Michael or Jim must go back to being a salesman. Meanwhile, Andy's Valentine's Day plan backfires.
OK, so here we go with a potential interesting plot twist-- could we end up with Michael being a salesman working onder Jim's leadership? It seems like a natural direction to explore at this point, since we've pretty much tapped out the "Jim as Michael's long suffering underling" angle. I can see this taking us through the end of the season, with Michael perhaps taking the reigns back in the season finale. As for Kathy Bates-- "Meh" about sums it up. Didn't like her small part last week, and expect to find her "southern belle" act tonight just as grating. But again, perhaps they'll surprise me? Hopefully the Michael/Jim stuff will take up the bulk of the episode.
For those of you wondering what's going on with the TWSS episode for last week's SABRE, please be patient-- it will be out sometime soon. Since we have a month long gap until our next episode of THE OFFICE, I figured we could space the TWSS eps out a little bit. The show for Sabre will be up sometime next week, and the show for this week's ep should be out a week or so later.
As always, join me in the TWSS Chatroom tonight during and after the episode. I don't think Kevin is going to be able to make it into the West Coast chat tonight, but the room is always open for anyone who'd like to talk about the episode in real time with other TWSS listeners.

SABRE | 2.4.10
Sabre comes in to take over Dunder Mifflin and Michael has difficulties accepting their new policies. Erin is waiting for Andy to ask her out while they work on a welcoming song for the company's new owners. Meanwhile, Jim and Pam interview for a local daycare center they hope to get into. Kathy Bates guest stars.
In a long-standing Hollywood tradition, yet another actor will step BEHIND the camera to direct an episode of The Office-- This time, John Krasinski, perhaps best known as the husband of Emily Blunt (ha ha), takes the reigns. We've already talked about our feelings for the whole Kathy Bates move, so we'll just see how it plays out. Hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised by her performance.
As always, leave your comments below. Don't forget to join Kevin and me in the TWSS Chatroom before and during the episode. Just click that "Chat Now" button on the right-hand sidebar.
