NEW LEADS | 3.18.10
When the sales staff lets Sabre's new "sales is king" policy get to their heads, Michael hides their new, prized leads.
Sabre's "no caps on commission" policy played a big role in the main plot of MANAGER & SALESMAN, so I suppose this episode's antics are the result of said policy. The mere mention of "leads" instantly brings to mind David Mamet's GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS (Always Be Closing, Mother f*cker), so I'm curious to see if writer Brent Forrester will use the famous play/film as inspiration or forge his own path. Will Jim be the "Shelley Levene" of the bunch? Is Dwight DM/Sabre's "Ricky Roma"? Who's getting fired, and who gets the steak knives? Place your bets now.
As always, join Kevin and me in the TWSS chatroom during and after the airing of tonight's episode (I'll be there for the Eastern/Central showings; Kevin's got the Pacific). Scroll down and hit the big green CHAT button on the right.

Tis the wearin' o the green at Dunder-Mifflin (a division of Sabre, doncha know?), and Michael's taken a shine to a very special lass-- his new boss, Jo. Should he be bookin' those plane tickets ta Florida, now? Or will a new chain of events change his outlook on loife? Meanwhile, when Jim's away, Dwight will play-- with MEGADESK, that is. What sorts of shenanigans will he get up to ta keep his precious? Finally, Andy goes on his first date with Erin, but a third wheel always leads to akward times.

St. Patrick's Day | 3.11.10
Michael (Steve Carell) thinks he impressed Jo (Kathy Bates) only to discover someone else in the office caught her eye. Meanwhile, Dwight (Rainn Wilson) makes trouble on Jim's (John Krasinski) first day back from paternity leave. Andy (Ed Helms) and Erin (Ellie Kemper) have an interesting first date.
So. Hm. Here we are. For those of you that don't follow my Twitter feed, let me repeat some of what I said this past week-- I'm tired. Burned out, really, and TWSS is definitely taking a back seat to a lot of the other issues in my life right now. Out podcast for THE DELIVERY is late, and I'm not sure when we're going to get back into it. And NO, I'm not quitting because I hated the episode or anything (I liked it a good deal, actually) like that. And NO, I'm not even quitting. I'm not sure what I'm doing, but I plan to return as soon as I can manage.
OK, on to tonight's episode. The real city of Scranton has a long tradition of having a huge St. Patrick's Day parade, and the creators of THE OFFICE have long wanted to do something with that plotline. In the past, March has always been a hiatus month so nothing could be done. It will be interesting to see how much (if any) this real-life event will play into tonight's show.
I still plan on being in the TWSS Chatroom tonight if you want to stop by. Hit the green "Chat Now" button on the side of the screen.

THE DELIVERY | 3.4.10
Pam's contractions begin but she and Jim are determined to wait it out as long as possible so they can have more time at the hospital. Meanwhile the rest of the office tries to distract Pam from the pain with food and entertainment. Michael anxiously waits for Pam and Jim's baby, Cecilia, to be born. Back at the office, Erin makes Andy jealous when she has lunch with Kevin.
Well, here it is-- the second huge JAM episode of season six. The Office already milked much of this baby/delivery humor last season in "Baby Shower," so it'll be interesting to see what they can do with a very similar plotline tonight.
Unfortunately, I have parent/teacher conferences tonight and will not be able to watch the episode live (or participate in the chatroom discussion). Feel free to stop by, though, and join other TWSS listeners in the chatroom if you'd like. Also, make sure you leave your comments below-- I have a feeling this could be a really love it or hate it sort of situation.
