Got stuck having to attend "open house" at my school last night from 6-9 pm, so I missed the show... thank the lord for the DVR.  Only got to watch it once so far, so just some basic impressions:

Very cool to see the gang out in the "real world."  I always find it interesting when the cast does this... makes the show seem bigger and broader in some respects.  Plus, we got to see the stylin' Dunder Mifflin polo shirt.

"Dwight got a hooker!" -- as hilarious as that was, I am a bit shocked that Ms. Martin would engage in such scandalous behavior.  Surely she knew Michael and Jim would be there...

Michael, Michael, Michael... like with the episode "The Client" last season, we start off with Michael looking like a total inept fool, and end with him brokering what seems to be a pretty large business deal.  I kept waiting for the rug to be pulled out from under him, but they let it ride.  Unfortunately, his "off da hook" party was a party of one... or TWO, when Jim showed up.  As sad as Michael might be, surely no salesman would pass up a chance for free booze during a convention? 

And Jim... why does he continue to be so darn NICE to Michael?  "You're a great boss"?  Ah well... that's just Fat Halpert for ya.  Leave it to Michael to then revive the "Jim and I are best friends" idea from "The Secret."

Toby's last name? FLENDERSON. 

And Pam... poor Pam.   Being single and now starting to date, she has become the object of attention for the office males, esp. Mr. Flenderson above.  Remember during "The Fire" when everyone admitted (including Oscar!) that they'd "hit that"?  I think things are going to get pretty awkward fairly soon.

I wasn't too impressed with the cold open-- it seemed a bit too forced.  Still, the rest of the episode was none too shabby.

Watch for the new episode of TWSS on Saturday!
