    They're losing me. Too much Andy for my taste.

    Please no more Andy singing; I cannot FF fast enough thru those sections. It's been like 3 weeks in a row. Ugh.

    Will give it a couple more weeks.

    Office is done. I felt there was too much Andy when there wasn't much Andy. I feel your pain.

    I thought this was one of the better episodes this season. Except for the singing part.

    The new girl was cute. (Don't tell my wife I said that!)

    I found the cold opening with Andy's dead mother to be awkward and unfunny.

    My favorite line that also had me worried at first was Jim talking to the camera in front of the store:

    [​IMG]
    Yes, I had feelings for a coworker today that I haven't had for years...
    ...In my defense he was grabbing my crotch fairly aggressively at the time.
    :)

    I agree about too much Andy. The big spotlight worked well with Michael Scott, but not so much for Andy Bernard.

    I agree. I get it that Erin is not the brightest, but come on. Nobody can be that stupid and still remain employed.

    Were the guest musicians "someone"? They were all really playing their instruments and clearly knew what they were doing.

    Yeah the cold open was pretty weak. It was a rip-off of something Michael would have done (like having Pam bring in post-it notes during meetings so Michael could tell her "no" and impress the clients).

    The rest of the episode was good though.

    Any problems with the episode were completely erased by the awesomeness of Dwight. He was great in this one.

    I will admit, I didn't watch. For some reason my DVRstopped recording the show and when I realized it, I didn't care.

    This affirms my decision to drop the show. I thought Andy was a good choice as the new boss in an ensemble show. But, they focused on him week after week and the character isn't good enough for that. They needed to move on.

    I've hated how they developed Erin. If you go back and watch the really early episodes she is naive and super eager to please, but not an idiot weirdo. I liked the former but not the latter.

    I was actually thinking they would.

    I was disappointed when they didn't.

    I also find this annoying. She was more fun and funnier when she was the naive gal friday.

    I can't say they are overdoing Andy. I mean they are probably giving him about the same screen time as Michael got, but it is just not being handled right. We were used to Andy in dribs and drabs, not a whole episode of him.

    Jim seems to be getting more on my nerves this season than ever before and I am not sure why.

    Man, this show stinks. I watch it out of habit and to see how the story will end.

    I wish there were more work-related plots and side stories with the minor characters. I wish it felt like a documentary again!

    I'm not as down on it as others, as I actually grew to like Andy. But like Jesda, I think I am mostly hanging in there just to see it end.

    I knew the drummer from this YouTube video... he's pretty awesome!
    But, I wasn't at all sure who the other two were, or were supposed to be...

    He is known as the Mad Drummer, and is referenced as the drummer at the wrong gig on youtube videos.
