I've only watched 3 times so I'll need to watch again to make a coherent post.

Loved the cold open. Ryan promoting Wuphf, Erin skating around, Jim actually participating, dorky dancing, Toby was the videographer.. so much good stuff. Jenna was pretty spectacular. Pam seemed so into it that it almost came across as her own idea.

Jim's prank with the keys would have been amazing. Loved that he had already filled his drawer with keys. And that he had a stethoscope. In college, I had a scholarship to the bookstore so once I got everything I needed, I'd just buy ISU garb and whatever else I wanted. Almost bought a stethoscope on more than one occasion. They sold purple ones.

Kevin working on the "circus board".

I liked the reveal that Luke was Michael's nephew. I did not like Luke. But he does give good nicknames. Big O, Tiny, Darryl Hannah.

Pam working on a prank on Dwight for Jim was really sweet. Jim calling Pam "Mrs. Halpert" was even better.

Luke lasering Andy in the eye was one of my favorite parts. So was Jo telling Gabe she didn't want to talk to his crotch.

I'm excited for therapy sessions with Michael and Toby. Sounds brilliant.

I need to re-watch but my favourite line of the episode was Pam scared to get out of the elevator because she didn't want to be cut in half.

Oh yea, how could I forget that!

"Nope. Afraid of getting cut in half. And there's pee on the floor."
"Of course there is."

Also, "That's why they call me the Bart Simpson of Scranton."
"Do they call you that?"

It was such a solid episode. Let's hope that this is a good indication of the rest of the season.

Let's hope so!

Just the right Jim/Pam. As long as we get interaction like that this season, I'm good. lol

I didn't like Pam's prank though. :/ But I did LOVE the Jim/Pam convo while she was in the elevator. I loved Jim's concern and Jim's tone when he said "Of course there is..." when Pam said there was pee on the floor. LMAO

I didn't like the cold opening but I loved the dorky dancing!

Can't wait for the therapy sessions with Michael and Toby. Those have such potential for greatness.

Creed was awesome! And Jim saying "You follow him(Luke) on twitter?" LMAO

Pam's prank was a little far fetched. It's hard to mess with an elevator. But she did it to make Jim feel better and that's enough for me.

Curious what you didn't like about the cold open? I love when everyone is involved.

Creed complaining about Betty White was great since she had just guested on Community an hour before.

Yeah, I liked the intent behind the prank but I think it was just a bit ott. If it had been soemthing other than elevator, I'd have been all over it. I did LOVE that they were back to pranking Dwight though. That THRILLED me and more than made up for not liking the elevator prank.

I don't know; it kinda felt like they were snarking on Glee or something. I mean I thought it was funny and all but it was weird. It's like I loved the interaction and the fact that everyone was involved but I just didn't like what they were doing. I don't know if that makes any sense.

Despite those two complaints, I really did like this episode! I've seen it 4 times already. LOL

Or when Creed was like "I'm in the midst of great minds..." or whatever. I was rolling. He was FANTASTIC. They need more Creed in episodes; he's so funny.

Oh, the other thing I loved about the elevator was the Chinese discussion. I just love those cute little moments like that. And the vending machine. It was like a call back to the scene in the Negotiation after Roy went postal on Jim. I kinda loved that!

I love when shows make jabs at Glee. I didn't even think of that while watching but in Ed Helms interview, he mentioned how it was different from "shows about high school clubs that lip sync" because for each take they played the music live. I love that. I really can't stand Ryan Murphy and how everyone basically worships Glee when the fact is, they do lip sync. And some of them are not good at it. If you want to be spectacularly awesome, do it for real.

Did you feel like they were mocking your friends?

Let me use my management powers and top this thread.

I really enjoyed the premier.

The opening was freaking awesome. I loved it.

I love Glee but I don't mind a little snarking. I think it's fun. But, I get where you're coming from.

You're welcome.

I need to stop by and post at least a bit here and there. I love John and I don't want the board to go anywhere. I need more time in my day though.
